Brown pa;cfe is a rather com- *
nor lawn disease in Texas.. Most!
lawn grasses are mrceptible tut!
San Augustine lawns are most of- j

Pathologist Harlan Smith.

These cheznicals, he adds, should

the manufacturer's recommenda-

says Smith. Brown patch is most
prevalent during humid weather
on lawns with a dense turf when
night temperatures remain 70 de-

To prevent the disease. Smith
says to avoid overwatering at ali

disease occur, avoid watering dur-1

Harris Hawk Kills
Rats, Saves Game
With fishing picking up on ev-

many fishermen will be grabbing

Meet an unexpected friend, the
Harris Hawk. Texans get a de-
tailed introduction in the March
issue of Texas Game and Fish, the
official publication of the Texas
Game and Fish Commission.
“Brush-Country Gentlemen” by
the late William Jennings, Biolo-
gist, points out that the Harris
Hawk preys cm rats, one of the
cense is required for all fishing
except fishing in your own home
county with an ordinary’ pole and

no reeling derice attached. Those
under 17 years of age and those
over 65 years of age are exempt
from all licenses unless fishing for

the pack rat eats a wide variety of
grasses and grass seeds, it robs
cattle and upland game birds of
food they need to carry them
through drouth and winter. The
rat also consumes much prickly
pear, staple food for deer and jav-
elina in South Texas.
“Studies are now underway in
parts of Texas,” Jennings said,
“which ultimately will determine
the exact destruction to range
plants by rodents. Although the
exact amount of damage done by
rodents in South Texas is un-
known, it will ran into millions of
A new record in quail egg pro-
:- ductiOB has been set by Virginia,
3 little quail hen at the State Quail
Farm . at Tyler,, according to the
; Assistant Secretary of the- Game
and Fish Commissino.
j Virginia laid 332 eggs m 12
| months. She surpassed the record
of 31 i eggs produced by her noth-
Bernice, during the previous
This performance record placed
Virginia at the top of all state per-
sonnel. She missed only 33 days of
production, which means she even
worked on Sunday part of the
time, took no long week ends, va-
cation, or sick leave.
There were 25 daughters of Ber-
nice in the egg test run at the
hatchery by Superintendent
George C. Stodghill. The test be-
gan March 1, 1957 and ended Feb.
28 this year. Seven of the little
hens reached the 300 mark. They
produced a total of 6,295 eggs, or
an average of 251.8 eggs per hen
in the 12 month period.
A number of birds from thu
blood line have been moved into
other broodstock now at the hatch-
In addition 100 wild quail have
been trapped by Biologist Clyde
Holt in the Decatur area. These
birds will be introduced into the
hatchery program to perfect na-
tive birds produced at the hatch-
ery for release on Texas farms
The Assistant Secretary urged
lahdowmers to begin their program
of habitat improvement early this
year, to provide cover for an in-
creased bird crop.
“We are going into a new hatch-
ing season with a fine seed crop
of quail,” he said. “Good shooting
this fall will depend largely upon
what is done by the landowners
this spring.” He urged landowners
to consult their wardens or other
game department representatives
for assistance in getting cover

over the weekend.
Res’. J. L. R ‘ten of Siisbee filled
the pulpit at the Mt Olivet Bap-
'ist Church in Fred Sunday right
in the absence of their pastor,
David Lee Jenkins, who is away

Those on the sick list this week
were Mrs. Lou West and Hall
Texas Safety Association, as chair-
man of the attendance committee.
He was named by Cecil Rejd, ex-
ecutive secretary of SCOT, orig-
inally named by Governor Dante 1
as chairman of the organizational
group which met today. George
Whittington of Amarillo, Presi-
dent of the National Rifle Associ-
ation, was appointed chairman of \
the Program Committee.
Emphasis at the meeting was
made on reports by National Rifle
Association representatives that!
states pioneering in gun safety-
programs have substantially re-
duced field accidents, and also
dollars just from the standpoint of
livestock feed alone.”
The chestnut-colored Harris
Hawk, with an average wingspan
of 42 inches, makes an impressive
appearance as it ranges the brush
country south of the Edwards Pla
teau in Texas. It goes as far west
as California, north to Kansas and
rarely Iowa, and east to Louisiana
South, it lives as far away as Cen-
tral Chile and Argentina. Although
its diet includes almost any ani-
mal or bird it is capable of cap-
turing, the Harris Hawk has a
natural target in the over-abund-
ant pack rat. In keeping down the
greedy small animals, the Harris
Hawk plays a vital role in nature’s
balance, and immeasurably helps
the farmer, rancher, and sports-

Q—My GI term insurance pol-
icy has been lapsed about six
months. Will I have to pay all
back premiums in order to rein-
A—No. You must pay two prem-
iums: one covering the month your
policy lapsed and one for the pre-
sent month. Since your policy was
lapsed more than three months,
you will need a physical examina-
tion to reinstate it
Q—If a school expels a veteran
for misconduct does he still have
the right to use his change-of-
course privilege under the Korean
GI Bill and enroll for another
course in another school?
A—No. If Korean GI training
is interrupted or discontinued for
misconduct and the school refuses
to readmit the veteran, the law
denies him all further GI training.
Q—I am a World War II veter-
an and I own a house purchased
with a GI loan. If by some chance
I have to sell it for a compelling
reason after July 25, 1958, the
deadline for applying for World
War H GI loans, may I still get
my entitlement reinstated?
A—Yes. Once VA reinstates
your entitlement you would have
until January 31, 1965, to obtain
another GI loan—even though the
World War II GI loan deadline
will have passed.
Q—I am over 18 and I plan to
go to school under the War Or-
phans Education program. Would
I be eligible to receive both my j
educational allowances and death
compensation payments at the
A—No. Since you are over 18,
the law prohibits both payments
simultaneously. If you receive
War Orphans payments your death
compensation payments will have

Q. Is it normal for babies’ eyes
A. Perhaps not norma! but it
frequently happens in very
young babies. After a few
months the eyes team-up in
the “eyes front” position. If
the eyes cross after six months,
ive your doctor. A crosseyed
child has little cr no chance of
“outgrowing” the condition.
Q. Children will sometimes
ntefuMy cross their eyes. Is
there any danger of the eyes
A. Not if the child has normal
eyesight and eye muscles. The
minute a normal person looks
away from a near point the
eyes straighten. The thing to
remember is that children can
have a wandering type of eye
cross. You may think they are
“playfully” crossing their eyes
when actually they have a ser-
ious eye condition. A New
York eye specialist told doctors
attending a medical meeting
fc*'.—- j*~i s'SCs
of just such a youngster. The
boy’s father thought his son
had developed a “bad habit”
and punished the child every
time his eyes crossed. Punish#
mssnt only made matters worse.
When the father stopped his
unreasonable punishment the
boy was relieved of bis fright
and the eye condition cleared
up with proper treatment. Any
child whose eyes are crossed
or cross only occasionally
should be examined by a phy-
sician. The earlier treatment
is started the better the re-
