Notes

An attached typed note reads, "EAR TICKS ARE SPREADING---Unless Gulf Coast ear ticks are headed off, their spread will continue into western and northern sections of Texas. Already, this livestock pest has moved from coastal areas into East Texas and the Hill Country. Teaming up with the screwworm, this pest has been a key factor in the increasing number of screwworm cases the past several years. -wfb-".
