AUSTIN—Don’t pick up young
of the wild. This is the warning
of Capt. E. M. Sprott, director of
law enforcement of the Game and
This is the time of the year
when many babes of the woods
stroll out in the open. They are
tame and curious, and there is a
tendency on the part of most people
to take them home.
In the first place, according to
Capt. Sprott, this is illegal. Just
as important is the fact that the
wild can take care of itself much
better in the wild than might be
done by individuals. There are a
few cases, he points out, where
lives of animals 'have been saved
and landowners take care of them
after something has happened to
the mother. However, when an
individual picks up a fawn or any
other animal and takes it home,
the animal actually has much less
chance of surviving.
The National Electrical Manu-
facturers Association (NEMA) has
authorized the Jackson Electric
Cooperative, Inc. to conduct a Me-
dallion Home Program.
The! Medallion Home symbol can
be featured on any home that
meets the proper electrical stand-
ards adopted by the NEMA and
your Cooperative. It assures the
home owner that their home has
the correct work-saving electric ap-
pliances, modern light for living,
and the home is properly wired for
This Medallion Home symbol—a
3-inch metal emblem—is awarded
by your electric cooperative to
identify any home regardless of
size, (type, or price which meets
proper electrical standards cover-
ing appliances, wiring, lighting,
Homes may be certified as Me-
dallion installations only if they
are all-electric. Certification of a
Gold Medallion Home requires an
electric kitchen, an electric laun-
dry or facilities for one, full house-
power, and adequate lighting. While
the air-conditioning and heating
requirements vary from area to
area in Texas, complete electric
heating — either resistance-type
heaters or heal pumps — must be
provided to qualify, and the home
should be properly insulated.
Complete information on NEMA
requirements may be obtained at
your Cooperative office.
