The need for this valuable fishing
information has made it possible
for Mr. Wells to expand these books
to six different fishing areas of
the Texas Gulf Coast.
There are books issued for the
Matagorda Bays, Rockport, Corpus
Christi, Port Isabel, Laguna Madre,
Galveston, Freeport, Sabine and
East Galveston Bays.
These books are depended on by
almost 50,000 salt water fisher-
men on the Texas Gulf Coast. They
are accurate because they are based
on scientifically predicted Tidal
currents. These currents control
the movement of all salt water
These forecasts give the best
fishing time for each day from
July 1st until December 31st. They
ilso tell you when you cannot catch
fish. The extreme high tides are
shown so that those hot spot sha-
low bays can be fished at the right
time. Even the extreme low tides
are shown in case you want to pick-
up oysters the easy way later in
The Wells Scientific Fishing
Forecasts can help most fishermen
catch more fish. Even the fisher-
men who must fish when he can, re-
gardless of the best days, needs the
information as to where the fish
are going to be, deep reefs or in
the shallows. And these conditions
can change every few hours on al-
most any day.
Thousands of fishermen really
believe that this is the best fifty
cents worth in their tackle box.
They are now on sale at Grassy
Point Bait Camp.

Crawford Cunningham: and his
son Clarence, Palacios rice farmers,
are again conducting a fertilizer
demonstration on their rice crop in
cooperation with the County Agent.
The Cunninghams farm 156 acres
of rice in the Collegeport area. This
year’s soil test recommendations
called for a 60-50-25 fertilizer ap-
plication per acre. A point of in-
terest to the Cunninghams is that
this is the first time the soil chem-
ist has ever recommended potash
for their rice. They have fertilized
the entire crop according to the
soil test. In addition Clarence has
set up several plots with different
rates of fertilizer application. He
will observe the growth of the rice
and determine the yield differences
at harvest of these plots.
The six plots Clarence has estab-
lished include a check plot (no fer-
tilizer), and the following plots fer-
tilized with the amount given per
acre: 0-0-25; 60-0-0; 17-51-0; 60-
30-30; and 62-51-0. Clarence has
the plots neatly staked with a
sign on each plot giving the amount
of fertilizer applied. Any one in-
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Edge left Tues-
day for a vacation to the state of
Washington. They were accompan-
ied to Denver by Mrs. Spencer
Johnson, who will visit relatives
and friends there.
forested should go by and observe
these fertilized plots.
