Gds the tarty Weeds |
A John Deere Rotary Hoe will prove to
be mighty cheap crop insurance if early
weeds or a hard crust threatens to choke
or smother your crop just before or just
after it sprouts—long before you could use
a shoved- or sweep-type cultivator safely.
Ideal for early cultivating—mulching
the surface .. . aerating the soil... killing
young weeds—the John Deere Rotary Hoe
has the further advantage of speed. You'll
work up to 8 acres an hour with a four-
section hoe like the one shown above . . .
up to 12 acres an hour with six sections.
Ask us for complete information.
Thanks to all who took part in making another
John Deere Day a success.

A Look Ahead for
College Station, January—'Texas
livestock producers would like
mighty well to see an improvement
on the profit side of the ledger in
1953. The sharp drop in cattle pri-
ces since last summer was made
more acute by the drouth which
covered much of the country. Re-
cent rains, however .have improved
the prospects for feed and some
strength has been noted in live-
The prospects for 4953 are not
too bright, says C. H. Bates farm
management specialist for the
Texas Agricultural Extension Ser-
vice. This prediction is based on
the forecast that more beef and
poultry will be available. The
supplies of mutton and pork will
be less but the over-all total of all
meats is expected to be larger than
1952 supplies. Prices, says Bates,
for both live animals and meat
at retail are most likely to decline
some unless unforeseen changes
On the favorable side of the
| picture Bates adds that the strong
demand for meat is likely to con-
tinue through 1953 and too, con-
sumers should have more money
with which to buy meats and o-
The long time outlook for pro-
fits from livestock production be-
lieves the specialist depends on
how well producers balance live-
stock numbers with feed supplies.
He points out that Texas produc-
ers in 1952 had some 21 percent
more catle than 10 years ago and
this resulted in heavier stocking
of range and pasture land. The

The. first two or. three days were
plenty rough, hut after that I got
along fine. My good neighbors, Carl
and Oeorgtw Woods, sure proved
to be good neighbors. Georgia also
proved to he a good sport. Carl

dles In Canasta but they kept right
on trying. Even after all this Geor-
gia sent me some good plum pie.

I noted an error in my column
last week regarding the cost of
grass drills. They cost 50c per a-
cre instead of 5c as printed last
week. Dale Carter, local Voc. Ag.
teacher is the one to see regard-
ing the rental of any of the Soil
Cons. District equipment.
Requests have been made by
Armstrong County farmers to pur-
chase 297,000 lbs. of Borascu to be
applied to bindweed infested land.
The local Soil Cons. District will
purchase over 6 car loads to fill
this demand. Requests for pay-
ment on over 1200 gal. of 2,4-D
have been made. Bindweeds are
one of our biggest threats in Arm-
strong County. A new bulletin on
Bindweed was sent to every per-
son requesting assistance under the
P. M. A. Program. Ben Chamber-
lain tells me the local P. M. A.
Committee has set this practice up
as the Number One for 1953. It
was a wLse choice.

Louis Hollingsworth and Bob Me-
Caskey, supervisors of the Staked
Plains Soil Conservation District,
attended the annual meeting of
the Association of Texas Soil Con-
servation District Supervisors Held
in Mineral Wells, Texas. Both Mr.
Holingsworth and Mr. McCaskey
were quite impressed by the large
turn out of land owners who are
not only interested in soil and
water conservation but are doing
something about it.
Further moisture penetration
tests were made on January 26.
On the Tom O.sborn farm where
wheat stubble was sweep plowed
the ground was saturated down to
8 inches, whereas on a comparable
field where wheat stubble was
turned under moisture penetration
was only 4 inches. On a weeping
love grass planting on the A. De-
Hart farm the ground was saturat-
ed down to 7 inches. A good Blue
grama, Buffaloe pasture on the
Tom Osborn farm the ground was
saturated down to approximately «
inches, compared to a penetration
of only 4 inches on a similar area.
A good cover on the land not
only protects the land from wind
and water erosion, but increases
yields through the additional mois-
ture that is stored by having a
good cover. This is true oh both
crop and pasture land.
A survey was made for a water
way on the Bonoe place which is
farmed by James Gunter, Jr. A
damless tank was staked on the
Jess Hundley farm south of Claude.
Contour lines were run on the
Louis Hollingsworth farm. Terrace
lines were run on Clyde Cope's
farm west of Claude, and a diver-
sion terrace was run on the J. B.
Masterson farm east of Good-
night. Mr. Masterson's farm is
operated by Mr. J. B. Reed.

drouth coupled with the 20 per-
cent less acreage planted last year
to hay and silage crops made the
feed situation a tough one. Even
with normal yields there would
have been feed shortages in most
The use of fertilizers and irri-
gation in some sections has help-
ed to boost feed crop yields, but
Bates cautions that growers must
keep feed acreages in line with
Profitable livestock production in
1953 or for most of any year, he
says, depends on the plans that
are made by the individual pro-
ducer for an adequate feed supply
which must include reserves. Unless
there is a stable feed supply, live-
stock profits are doubtful, regard-
less of a strong demand lor meat
and reasonable prices.

Malocclusion is the term used to
describe the poor contact of the
teeth of the upper jaw to the teeth
of the lower jaw. The results of
malocclusion are frequently harm-
ful, and may lead to deformities
of the jaws and face. This condi-
tion may cause faulty chewing,
resulting in malnutrition and indi-
gestion, even though the diet may
be adequate. Pyorrhoea, psycho-
logical disturbances and speech
defects may also develop. Ad-
vancements made in modern den-
tistry can do much to correct mal-
