The great fear of the people Is
greater inflation. As they cut up
the take-home pay in terms of
groceries, clothing, shelter, and

One of the newest "top notch’’ AS DRASTIC »nd i
dairy shows In Texas wilt be un- u war la, I am eon

More than 100 head of dairy
cattle are expected at the event
which promises to be one of the
best managed; shows ever held in
this area, E. A. Spacek, Wood
County Agriculture Agent stated
In O. W. Thompson, superin-
tendent, th* show boasts of one
of the most qualified managers
in the dairy business. Thompson,
brmerly Dairy Specialist for the
Texas A. and M. College Exten-
sion Service, has a long back-log
of experience In setting up and
udging dairy-shows in Texas.
The Winnsbore event known as
the Tri-County Dairy Show, will
be held annually on an area wide
basis to encourage and expand
dairy interest# in Wood, Rains,
Hopkins, Franklin, Smith, Up-
shur and Camp Counties.
Highlights of the dairy exhibi-
tion will include a "best uddated
cow class." Only the udders of th*
animal* Will he judged to pick out
the best in this class. Show offi-
cials believe that this feature will
appeal to the rank and file dairy-
men, many of whom own real
“milk wagona." \
Classification of animals will
begin at 9:30 a. m, with females
to be handled during the morning
session. Judge* who will be on
hand to classify the dairy stock
Include E. R. Eudaly and 3. W.
Davis. Eudaly, formerly head of
the Texas A. and M. College Ex-
tension Service dairy work, is now
director of the livestock division
for Universal Mills, Fort Worth.
Davis Is a dairy specialist for the
A. and M. College Extension Ser-
vice in this state,
“Plans are now complete,” say*
Supt. Thompson, “for an exhibi-
tors and official* luncheon at the
Winnsboro Memorial School cafe-
teria.” The luncheon will begin
at the noon hour and will feature
Eudaly as speaker.
Judging of bulls and group
classes will he resumed at 1 :S0

this week. The Tri-County Dairy
Show Is being staged by the Vet-
erans Vocational School and busi-
ne#s men of Winnsboro. Another
feature of the event will be a

This is high contrast to what

According to N. V. Thomason,
show clerk, entries will be accept-
ed until shortly before the show.
Entries already have been receiv-
ed from most of the outstanding
dairy herds in a wide area of
Belgium. I was

markable thing impressed me.
And tn thia there is a lesson for

with government, in keeping
prices down. America has not

long run this would be,the best
for labor. It Is not surprising
that their standard of living is
reported good by those who have
recently toured the country.
As * result of that policy, and
because she kept her privet#

com* beck more rapidly than oth-

only another link In the strong
