shape for cultivation of his land.
C. W. Bostick of Alto and R. R.
Todd have an excellent cover of
Oats and Vetch on their land near
Sam L. Stockton of Mixon is
preparing land for planting Seri-
cea Lespcdeza. Stockton has been
growing Sericea for hay for a
number of years.
Ed Martin of Alto has one field
that has had Vetch volunteering
on it for more than 10 years. Mar-
tin said ithat this land was the
poorest in Texas when he started
the Vetch on it. Today the Ber-
muda is boot top high and the
Vetch is above the grass.
Gus Whiteman of Al.o has made
a good start improving his pas-
tures. He has a 100 acre pasture
land planted to Vetch. He plants
but does non graze this pasture
allowing all the growth to go
back to the land.
The world's mightiest law
makers—the United States Con-
gressmen and senators—sit down
each year to make laws.
But mighty though Congress is,
the constitution won’t give it cer-
1. Neither Congress nor any-
body else can suspend the writ of
habeas corpus (unless the pub-
lic safety demands it during re-
bellion or invasion). All officers
or others must obey a court and
bring in anyone in their custody
to see whether he is held law-
2. Cong'ress cannot pass “bills
of attainder,” special acts to pun-
ish. someone. Congress cannot by-
pass the courts.
3. Congress cannot pass an ex
post faci.o law—a law which
makes an act a crimo which was
not one when done, or which
punishes the offender more than
called for when done.
4. Congress cannot tax exports
from any state nor by regulation
favor one state’s ports over an-
other’s, nor make one state’s ves-
sels clear or pay duties to an-
other state in order to enter.
Besides these denials from
within, the constitution curbs
Congress and the executive and
judiciary in the amendments, es-
pecially the first ten.
Among other things, Congress
cannot make a law respecting an

The constitution also curbs the

The constitution, which divides
the work of the three branches of
government, winds up by telling
where the rest of the power rests
—just in case anybody gets any
fancy ideas of dictatorship. There
are things no state can do, for in-

Tax-Man Sam Sez:
There is always a question of

ilies nowadays because times and
styles i ave changed. The tax
folks hav • the same trouble with
people who want to be head of
the household during income tax
filing period.The “head of a house-
hold” status cannot, under any
circumstances, apply to a married
couple for income tax purposes.
Only unmarried persons can claim
this status. You may wear the
britches in your family, but you
can’t claim to be head of the
household on your income tax
return unless you meat with all
