Seed, Damp Soil
By J. D. Moore. County Agent
Poor stands of cotton due to low
germinating seed and cold, damp
soil are causing farmers some con-
cern. Many farmers are replant-
ing their cotton to avoid the weeds
and grass as well as the poor
Some reports come in regard-
ing grub worm damage to corn
stands Dry weather is neede3 in
order for farmers to plow their
corn and get air into the soil.
Constant care and attention are
necessary for the maintenance of
a beautiful lawn. One of th ebasic
factors involved is mowing. Im-
proper mowing is responsible for
the deterioration of many lawns.
Mowing too close encourages the
tinning of the turf and shallow
rooting, resulting in lower resis-
tance to drouth, diseases and in-
vasion by weeds.
The leaves of the lawn grass
not only produce the green color,
but also manufacture food requir-
ed for the entire plant. When too
much of the leaves are clipped
the entire plant suffers. No more
than a half inch of the leaf tip
should be removed at any one
Creeping types of grasses can
withstand closer mowing than
bunch types. Bermuda should be
mowed at a height of one to one

Many lawn enthusiasts like a
dense mat of turf, but such a
buildup of stems and leaves event-
ually leads to trouble. The mat
acts as insulation; new roots from
stems must penetrate it to get to
the soil, and it increases the dis-
Too Much Grata Hurts
Feeding too much grain in poul-
try rations results in reduced
growth rate and production, and
adversely affects feed conversion.
An all mash starter, grower, or
laying feed intended to be the sole
ration af poultry should not be
fed with grain, except on recom-
mendations of the manufacturer.
Producers have a tendency to
feed more grain than is recom-
mended because this portion of
the ration is cheap compared to
the concentrate. It is evident that
such a dilution will reduce the
level of vitamins, minerals and
drugs which the bird would receive, j
Corn was considered to be the
grain of choice for incorporation
into poultry' feeds before 1950. But
the production of milo in the U.S.
has increased by over 100 percent
since 1950 and today it is con-
sidered to be the equal of corn in
feeding value. Milo has the same
energy content and about 2 per-
cent more protein than corn.
Poultry producers have become
interested in using home-grown
grains for poultry feeding, which
is advantageous if they are used
properly. But don’t overfeed on
grain simply because it s cheap.
It may not be so cheap in the long

Texas Champions of Freedom
Guardian of Man’s Right to Self-Rule
Historic and architecturally beautiful
Castroville, 20 miles from San Antonio
on the Medina River, is an enduring
monument to a great and wise man whe
had unbounded faith in the capacity of
intelligent men for self government.
And he chose Texas as the country in
which to prose his faith. Henri Castro,
Parisian banker, scholar and humanist,
learned about Texas when he aided the
young Republic to obtain a French loan
in 1840. What he learned fired his ideal-
ism and determination to help his fel-
low men in independence of thought
and action. So, backing his concept of
freedom with his own great personal
fortune, he contracted to bring a colony
from Alsace to settle in the new coun-
try. Although war with Mexico made
Texas ports unsafe. Castro successfully
landed 27 shiploads of Rhenish-French
immigrants from 1844 to 1847. In that
time he had settled 485 families and
457 single men in the peaceful, pleasant
villages of Castroville, Quihi, Vandcn-
burg and D'Hanis. There he expended
more than $200,000 to equip his col-
onists for a successful agriculture econ-
omy, and planned with them for prog-
ress in trade and industry.
Today Texans still demand and get
their right to choose the way they want
to live. In this vigorous and freedom-
minded homeland.. Beer Belongs
and this is why the United States Brew-
ers Foundation works constantly, in
conjunction with brewers, wholesalers
ind retailers, to assure the sale of beet
and ale under pleasant, orderly condi
tions. Believing that strict law enforce-
ment serves the best interest of Texans,
the Foundation stresses close coopera-
tion with the Armed Forces, law en-
forcement and governing officials in its
continuing Self-Regulation program.
