WITH JUNE comes harvest time in Shackelford
County, anil despite the. long winter and spring
drouth, the county is making quite a bit of wheat.
A lpt of row crops are looking fine, and maybe
this country will have a feed crop by fall.
We have had more than seven inches of rain this
year, most of it falling the past two months, We
are several inches below average rainfall for the
first week in June.
litis area usually receives big rains .in early
June witness "the June 10 flood in 1041 Last year
as much as II inches of rain was reported in one
spot during a big storm the first week in June

back, with I;5«3 screwworm cases being "con-

week more cases are reported.
Slu i 'kelford County had its first screwworm
case confirmed last week, and the area (Daw-
son-Conway Itancli), has probably already
received Sterile flies. \
The r.vichers in Texas now know how to
control these cosily pests, and they will soon
have the present epidemic under control.
It's a (iooil World
"If is, after all,., a good world. II is you, and I
and others like us, who get out of tui.e willi the
harmonics of life. We turn deaf ears lo the kindly
filings our neighbors would tell us, because we are
piqued over a fancied "wrong. We close our eyes
•and lament.the darkness of the world. We < lo e
onr fists and shake them, daring others to lest our
strength We place a premium on physical prow-
ess and mortal combat, and a wreath of glory on
tli(> Victor. And we forget a neighbor who, in the
quietness of his mental, laboratory, gives his life
to develop a solace to mankind. Whatever wrong
there is in the world is man made, and until man
learns Hie simple rule of thoughlfulness the un-
derstanding of tiie other's viewpoint—lie must suf-
fer the consequences of a disappointed life."

000 tiny muskellunge have been
delivered to Texas as part of an
exchange with the Wisconfin Ds-
partment of Natural Resources,
according to Ted Lowman of thj
Texas Parks and Wildlife De-
The Wisconsin agency receiv-

in exchange for the muskies.
The one-inch muski s are be-

San Marcos and Jasper.
Biologis's emphasized that the
trade is one of convenience to
both agencies. If,either the mus-
kies or the sunfish do prosper in
transplantation, Lowman pointed
out, it will be a fishing bonus at
no additional expense to the
state's fpheries program. Low-

' "Bread making is a part of

movement," says Miss J ois
Howard, National 4-II Service
Committee home economist.
"And everybody appreciates
the tantalizing aroma of
freshly baked bread."
There are over 650,000
young people learning lo per-
