The flowers are beautiful in
Hawaii. Most of the guests at the
hotel are wearing leis (garlands of
flowers) around their necks. Even-
ing clothes are worn largely for din-
ner here at the hotel.
There has been lots of publicity
this weekend. Pan American’s inaug-
ural flight from Alaska to Hawaii
brought in a group of important
good will people, including an Eski-
mo girl in a native costume of furs
and parka. The girl from the “froz-
en spaces” brought ice from Alaska
to mix with pineapple juice in
Hawaii, as a symbol of the bond be-
tween the two territories. The 72
degree temperature here caused the
Alaskan to be quoted “There’s no
Place Like Nome.”
We have reservations to fly to San
Francisco Monday night, leaving
Honolulu at 6:30 p.m. anct arriving
in San Francisco early Tuesday
morning. I should be back in dear
old Mesquite by Friday—and that is
a date I’m looking forward to keep-
ing. As I’ve said many times before—
there’s no place like Texas and no
place like home.

Many great football games have

his team to per-

particular brand of “carrying on,”
for which they are famous. The

Fielding “Hurry Up” Yost, the
grand old man of Michigan, whose
gridiron record will probably
never be equalled, was a past
master of fiery pep-talks. On one
occasion, Yost gave out with his
most fervext pleas, which com-
pletely entranced the team. When
he reached the climax of his ora-
tion, he screamed, “GO OUT
THAT DOOR TO VICTORY!”
He was so carried away with
his speech that pointed to the
wrong door. The obedient players,
stirred with emotion and filled
with anger for the opponent,
stampeded through the indicated
door—into the swimming pool.
Some of the star players were
practically drowned before they
were fished out.

AUTHORITY IN RELIGION
By J. P. Johnson, Minister
.of Mesquite Church of Christ
The religious world is confused
over authority. The majority of
preachers don’t know whether they
are under Moses or Christ. We hear
men quoting the Old Testament, and
making it a commentary on the news
of the day!
God is not talking to us thru
Moses or the prophets today. Read
it! Heb. 1:1:2. “God spake - - in
time past unto the fathers in the
prophets; Hath in thesp last days
spoken unto us in his son.” Again:
“This is my beloved son, in whom I
am well pleased; iiear ye him.” Matt.
17: S'. Not Moses nor the prophets,
God said thru Moses: “I will
raise them up a prophet from among
their brethern, like unto thee, and
will put my words in his mouth; and
he shall speak unto them all that I
shall command him. And it shall
come to pass, that whosoever will
not hearken unto my words which
he shall speak in my name, I will re-
quire it of him.” Deut. IS: 18:19.
When Jesus came he said: “For I
spake not from myself; but the Fa-
ther that sent me, he hath given me
a commandment, what I should say
therefore which I speak, even as the
Father hath said unto me, so I
speak.” John 12:49:50. Thus Christ
is the Prophet Qod promised to raise
up. So Peter taught. See Acts 3:22:
23. We are to hear him in “all things
whatsoever he speaks.” He is su-
preme - - to refuse him is to be utter-
ly destroyed. “Who is on the right
hand of God, having gone into heav-
en; angels, and authorities and
powers being made subject unto
him.” 1 Peter 3:22.
Christ is the supreme authority in
religion. To Please God, we must do
all things as Christ directs.

Their Future is in the Balance
I\^eat animals are what they eat! It takes a bal-
anced ration to keep them healthy, growing and gain-
ing. Successful livestock men know this. Hundreds
of controlled feeding experiments prove it. Morrison,
the great feeding authority, states—“Lambs on un-
balanced rations require 46% more corn and 15%
more hay for each 100 pounds of gain!”
Balanced rations for hogs show spectacular results.
Anyone can make a lot of fat and a little lean with
corn and water. But that’s the slow, expensive way.
It takes a pile of corn to do it. But with corn bal-
anced with proteins and minerals and vitamins hogs
can be fed to market weights in six months or less.
Think of the corn you can save—11 bushels of corn
alone will make 100 pounds of pork, but only 6Vi
bushels of corn plus 35 pounds of protein supplement
will do the same job faster.
Scores of feeding trials prove that a balanced ration
pays with steers and lambs, whether on the range or
in the feedlot. In fact, the same basic principle ap-
plies to all livestock and poultry. Forage and other
homegrown feeds, properly balanced with proteins
and minerals, make more and better meat pounds at
Continuous research affords new and exciting
means of using available materials in improved
rations for-livestock. At first, tankage alone was used
to add protein to hog rations. It did a good job.
Then research proved that a combination of proteins

is better than one kind alone. A mix- '
ture of tankage, soybean meal, linseed meal
and, in some areas, cottonseed meal, produces better
quality pork even faster. This improvement in ra-
tions makes for more efficient and economical use of
proteins. But what about vitamins and minerals?
Here, too, many advancements in techniques of sup-
plying these nutrients have been made. Dehydrated
alfalfa, milk solids, vitamin oils, and some synthetic
sources provide essential vitamins and other factors.
Mineral balance is necessary, too. Salt, the universal
need, supplies sodium and chlorine. Steamed bone
meal supplies calcium and phosphorus, and other
major minerals. With these, alert research men now
are combining other known essential elements, such
as cobalt, manganese, iron, iodine, copper, and mag-
nesium, to turn slow gainers into fast gainers.

It’s cheaper to warm water with fuel in the tank heater
than with corn in a steer.
E. T. Robbins, University of Illinois
For proper nutrition of brood sows, feed good quality
alfalfa hay liberally, ground or otherwise. Use at least
15% in mixed rations for sow, or self-feed the hay in a
rack. Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment Station

Cover a 2-inch-thick slice of ham with honey or orange marmalade.
Add 1 cop water or fruit juice. Bake in a covered pan in a slow oven
(325° F.) about 25 to 30 minutes per pound (about 2 hours).

Want to estimate efficiency of calf pro- Marvin Roger
duction in your cow herd? The cow’s first calf tells more
than her good looks. In a New Mexico study, we took
the weaning weights of first calves weaned by three-year-
old cows. These weights were compared with the weaning
weights of calves raised by these same cows in the next
four years. Cows and calves were placed in five groups
(according to the weaning weight of first calves). Here’s
the 5-year record:

First Calf Weight
From Same Cows
for Next 4 Years
Considering only the two extremes, Group One and
Group Five, it was shown that breeding stock picked,
from Group One could be expected to produce, for the
next four years, calves that had a yearly average weaning
weight of only 404 pounds. But those picked from Group
Five should produce calves with a yearly average weaning
weight of 456 pounds, 52 pounds more than Group One.
These figures show that later calves are apt to be a re-
peat performance of the' cow’s first calf. Cows doing
poorly their first calving <year continued to produce the
lightest group of calves. They were poor risks. Culling
cows with light, scrubby first calves would be well repaid
in greater profit through more efficient production.
