Be Host To Many At
Live Stock Show
With the great King and Ken-
edy ranches as a background, the
City of Kingsville on October 31
and November 2 will assume the
regalia of the cow country as its
citizens welcome thousands of vis-
itors to the annual live stock and
agricultural show held on those
dates in connection with the Far-
mers’ and Homemakers’ Short
Course of the Texas College of
Arts and Industries.
The three-day show will be op-
ened with a parade featuring cow-
boys, cowgirs, chuck - wagons
stage-coaches, and other features
reminiscent of the days of the
open range, but with places in its
ranks for more modern items of
pageantry such as bands, floats,
militay unit, and civic groups.
The rodeo, to be held each
night on A.&I. Field under the
floodlights, will hark back to the
pioneer days by featuring a range
branding contest. Rock Reagan,
Beeville rodeo ringmaster, will be
in charge of the rodeo.

Officer in Charge of U. S. Marine
Corps recruiting in Texas, stress-
ed the fact that young men with-
in the age group 21 to 35 will
be required to register for mili-
tary training on October 16th. He
said, “The conscription bill pro-
vides that young men between
the ages of 21 and 35 will be re-
quired to register for military
training, and those 'called will be
deprived of their opportunity to
choose the branch of military
service in which they would rather
serve. Therefore all those who
would rather enlist in the U. S.
j Marines should submit their ap-
plication for enlistment as soon as
possible. The Marine Corps has
been authorized another increase
in strength, and this increase will
be met in a very short time.
The Southern Recruiting Div-
ision alone is enlisting more than
1000 men per month. Young men
living in Texas who desire to serve
their country in the ranks of the
Marine Corps, should write to or
call at any one of the recruit-
ing stations located in Dallas,
Austin, Fort Worth, Houston and
San Antonio, immediately. By
applying now they may be sure
of being accepted and enlisted be-
fore ali the vacancies are filled,
and before they are required to
horse contests, girls’ calf penning
contests, bull-dogging, bronc-rid- ] service*'“in* the' Army,
ing, steer-necking are on the ro-
deo card in addition to special
performing horse and clown acts.
The rodeo is wide open to the
world and no professional or ama-
teur rider or roper will be barred.
There will be no break-away-rop-
ing on a paid admission show, but
stock and the rodeo grounds will
be at the disposal of amteurs who
want to stage contests during the
Running through the three-days
will be an official show of the
American Quarter Horse Associa-
tion. Jim Minnick, Norman, Okla-
homa, official inspector of the as-
sociation, visited Kingsville today
to confer with Dr. J. K. North-
way, of the King Ranch, and
George Clegg, of Alice, on plans
for the show. He declared more
good quarter-horses are to be
found in this area than in any
other part of the Southwest and
predicted a good show at Kings-
ville He will return to assist in
judging the show.

as a rodeo committee to assist

provided they are qualified for
enlistment. Many of the young
men now enlisting in the Marines
frankly state that they are doing
so because they prefer enlisting
now in the service of their choice.

With more than fifty bands al-
ready returned, it appears as if
the whitewing dove banding pro-
ject undertaken by the Texas
Game, Fish and Oyster Commis-
sion and the U. S. Fish and Wild-
life Service in the Rio Grande
Valley last spring will be emin-
ently successful in providing the
means of learning considerable
concerning that species of bird.
Sportsmen killing whitewing
doves with bands on their legs are
asked to return them to the Game
Department office in Austin or
to the game manager at Victoria.
Whitewing doves nest only in
the Valley and in scant number*
in Southwest Texas counties
Their natural range is being de-
pleted as more and more land is
cleared for citrus groves and veg-
Game Department biologists
hope to learn much of the habits
of whitewings before making def-
inite recommendations concerning
ways to aid in increasing the
whitewings. It is hoped to ascer-
tain how long the birds live, how
many times they will nest in a
year, whether they travel north
after leaving the nest or how soon
some of them go to Mexico ahead
of the regular migration, which
and how far they move from their
nesting areas to their feeding-
