A UNIVERSAL INTERNATIONAL PICTURE
“Get yourself a good early seed-
bed and you’ll have 90 per cent of
your waterway problem licked"
suggests iL. L. Thompson of Ennis.
“My reasons are these" says
Thompson: the only time you can
plow this blackland is early when
moisture is present and when a
farmer isn’t busy harvesting. Small
grain land plows good right after
the combine leaves the field. You
have all sununer to plow and kill
The first fall rain goes into the
soil to hold fall sod until winter
rains come. By sodding early in the
tall on a well prepared seedbed,
you can get an early cover of grass
to terrace on next year. Summer
drought doesn't bother you because
the grass is well rooted by then.”
Thompson, who farms 138 acres
west of Ennis, has been a toopera-
tor with the Ellis Prairie Soil Con-
servation District since 1954 Tech-
Service Work Unit in Ennis helped
Thompson plan his waterway
needs as part of a complete soil,
water, and plant conservation
program for his farm.
He immediately cleared some
trees and tried to sod bermuda
where moisture vlas scarce hoping
lor the next season. This year he

because of no rain to settle the
clods. Thompson turned right bock
and started preparing a seedbed
for the next season. This yar he
had such good luck on this good
seedbed with below average roots,
he hastily ordered some more roots.
These were planted on an unpre-
pared seedbd and although the
roots were extra good, he failed to
get a stand of grass. I’ve learned
my lesson for sure, states Thomp-
son. If its a choice of good roots or
a god seedbed, I’ll take the god
early prepared sedbd. It’s 90 preent
of the job.
SWEET GIRL GRADUATE—
Mrs. Augusta Lynch of Custer,
Mich., is 75 years old and
still going to school. After put-
ting her five children through
Michigan State University, she
returned in 1953 t® finish her
own undergraduate work. Now
she says she may stick around
alter her June graduation to
work for her master’s degree.

The Texee City disaster of 1947 ie
being related and relived before the
Judiciary Committees of the Con-
gress as they consider legislation to
compensate the families of 570 per-
sons who were killed and the«-3500
who suffered injuries. Senator John-
son end I and Congressman Clark
Thompson of Galveston have intro-
duced bills for this purpose. Our
bills were passed by the House and
Senate last year, but the two Houses
did not agree upon the final form
of the legislation before Congress
The TJniteri States Goverment has
a responsibility in this matter be-
cause the ammonium nitrate fertili-
zer which exploded in Texas City
harbor was manufactured and ship-
ped according to goverment specif-
ications and under the supervision
of our goverment as part of our
foreign aid program This particular
fertiliser was destined for France!
Both the House and the Senate co-
mmittees last year were convinced
that the goverment officials were
negligent in not warning those who
handled this fertilizer of its explo-
Relief for the Victims
Since 1947 families of the deceas-
ed and the injuried have been try-
ing to collect damages. They went
through the courts up to the United
States Supreme Court and were
turned dowp on a technicality in
the law. That threw the matter in
the lap of the Congress. Although
it will never be possible to repay
in money the suffering caused by
the explosions, the goverment, hav-
ing set this chain of events in mot-
ion, owes a duty to do all it can.
Every effort will be made to get
prompt action on this measure to
help the widows and orphans and
those who bear the scars of the ef-
fort of our country to help the un-
fortunates of the world.
Citizens of foreign nations injuried
in their person or property by reason
of the acts of agents of our country
are immediately compensated for
their damages. The most recent ex-
ample of this is the payment made
to Japanese citizens injuried as -a
result of the hydrogen bomb tests
in the, Marshall Island on March

Central Texas Military Affairs
Roy Smith of Killeen and four-
teen other members of the Central
Texas Military Affairs Committee
were, in Washington last week to
•discuss with the Secretary of the
Army methods for the payment of
damagea to the owners of land used
in connection with maneuvers held
at Fort Hood.. Sometime ago Oper-
ation Longhorn, one of the largest
maneuvers ever held, was conducted
at Fort Hood and the surrounding
territory. Many of the farmers in
the area suffered damages to their
land as a result of this activity and
payment of damages was very invol-
ved and took too much time. At
present representatives of the land-
owners in the area are trying to
work out a way which will make Is
easier to permit the Defense Depart-
ment to use this valuable Texas
land for conducting the most im-
portant practice warfare which is
necessary for the training program.
