Ev Jimmy D. Smith
The Christmas season is here
and then the start of 1960 is just
around the corner. The year 1959
has been one of the best ever
here in the Staked Plains Soil-
Conservation District. With the
wonderful, although very unex-
pected, rain we have had in De-
cember, we have a promising out-
look for all farmers and ranch-
ers for the new year. Here in the
office we are ending the year bj'-
preparing reports ar.d bringing
cooperators pi: ns up to date.
As the new year approaches
many farmers will be installing
underground irrigation pipelines.
If a representative of- the pipe
company isn’t going to make a
survey for you, then please con-
tact us as soon as possible for
scheduling time for the prelimin-
ary surveys in order that the de-
sign work will be completed when
you get ready to install your line.
The' Great Plains Program has
proven itself this last year in the
district, and anyone who wishes
to do a complete conservation job
on their farm or ranch should
contact the Soil Conservation of-
fice as soon as possible for plan-

voted overwhelmingly in favor of
continued federal marketing con-
trols for 1980. Texas likewise
went along with the marketing
quotas voting 24,956 to 3,306 for
upland cotton quotas.
This means that for 1960 crop
year cotton plantings will be vir-
tually the same as alio ted this
By approving the quotas-, grow-
ers assure themselves of price
supports at not less.than 75 per
cent of parity. Had they reject-
ed quotas supports would have
dropped to 50 per cent of parity.
The next decision for cotton pro-
ducers to make is whether to
take Choice “A” or Choice “B”
Choice “A” provides for regu-
lar farm allotments and price
support at not less than 75 per
cent of parity to growers who
comply with these allotments.
Choice “B” provides for allot-
ments which are 40 per cent larg-
er than the regular farm allot-
ments and price support at not
'ess than 60 per cent of parity to
c-operators. The level of price
support for the crop will be de-
termined not later than January
This year Texas growers placed
approximately 80 per cent of
available acreage under Choice
“A” and 20 per cent under Choice
“B”. The prices being paid for
choice “B” cotton this year com-
pare favorably with choice “A”
cotton. In some cases the lower
grades of choice “B” cotton are
bringing more than loan price
for like grades of choice “A”.
More about this next week.

At this season of the year, one
is ever mir.dful of his blessings.
During the past year I have real-
ized more fully the value of
friends. Because I am unable
physically to write each personal-
ly, I want this -to express my
deep appreciation for your many
kind acts, thoughts and prayers
in my behalf.
May the joy and peace of the
Christmas season be yours.
Mrs. Frank Sparks
Farmers received their Christ-
mas presents early this year. Al-
most everyone is all smiles over
the rain and this Christmas Sea-
son will be joyful indeed. May
we extend to you our wish for a
happy and safe holiday season.

WISHING YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND
A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Thanking you for your patronage the past year
Starting on the evening of December 25th and for 8 days
afterwards, Jewish people all over the world will celebrate a
great triumph of freedom over slavery, of light over darkness —
Chanukah, the annual festival of Light and Liberty.
With the lighting of the first candle_ on the “Menorah” — a
holder for eight candles, one more of which is lighted each night
for the eight days of the festival — the miracle of Chanukah
comes back to' the minds of all Jews: when a day’s supply of
sacred oil, found when the Jewish Army re-entered their Temple to
cleanse it of the Greek idols which had been there, lasted a full
As with all festive occasions...Chanukah is a time for feast-
ing and delicious foods. For today’s families prepare for the
Feast of Lights in the same sumptuous manner as did their an-
cestors years ago. We suggest that this year the following
“Blintzes” be included in the menus.
Blintzes La Mer
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
cup liquid from jar
1 cup flour
Drain gefilte fish and save liquid. Mash fish and blend With the
egg. Set aside. Beat the 3 eggs thoroughly; add salt, water and
the xk cup of liquid from fish. Gradually, add this liquid mixture
to the cake meal, stirring constantly and thoroughly to avoid;
lumps. Pour about 3 tablespoons of the batter on a hot lightly ,
greased skillet and rotate pan so batter forms a 6” circle. Fry
over moderate heat until edges pull away from pan. Turn out
on a clean cloth, cooked side up. Repeat until all the batter is
used. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of each;
leaf. Fold in side edges and roll tightly. Fry until golden brown
in a small amount of fat. Serve with heated *Tomato and Mush-
room Sauce. Makes 10-12.
