manding Officer of the Fort
Worth District of the Texas
Hghway Patrol, released Jade
County’s Rural Traffic Acddent
Summary for June.

gated a total of 6 accidents with
the following breakdown: 3
property damage,^ personal in-
jury, and 1 fatal accident.

Cutting of Weeds
Soil conservation district co-
operators in both the Upper
West Fork and Palo Pinto Dis-
tricts have been mowing weeds
on their grass plantings in order
to cut down on competition for
moisture and to keep them from
making seed. Sunflowers have
really “gone to town’ this sea-
son, with early moisture to get
them off to a good start. Among
those who have been running
mowers are Mrs. Alice Morgan,
whose farm is near Cundiff,
and Charles McClure, two miles
south of Jacksboro.
Carl Ramsey has one of the
best stands and growth of
King Ranch bluestem we have
seen this year. He planted just
ahead of the rains on land that
had been in Madrid sweetclover
for .three years before the grass
was seeded. From all appear-
ances, the conditioning of the
soil by the sweetclover is pay-
ing off in increased growth and
vigor in the grass. Soil condi-
tioning ahead of planting grass
is recommended by the Soil
Cooperators who have de-
ferred grazing on one or more
pastures are getting very satis-
factory recovery of their
grasses. This is especially true
of the short grasses, such as
buffalograss, which has made
amazing recovery. The mid-
grasses, notably sideoats grama
and little bluestem, and the tall
grasses, b i g bluestem and
switchgrass, are also showing
good growth in rested pastures.
Maurice Clerihew of Antelope
has rested 177 acres since the
first of the year on the J. T.
Pickens place, which he leases.
He plans to move cattle off a
348 acre pasture soon and de-
fer it until the end of the year.
Ry using a plann'ed system of
deferred grazing, together with
other range management prac-
tices, Clerihew is improving his
W. L. Voyles, also of Ante-
lope, is using another range
management practice to im-
prove his grass. By proper use
of his grasses through a safe
rate of stocking, he is increas-
ing their vigor and cover, and
is giving them a chance to pro-
duce seed and thicken the stand.
