Uncle Sam has 11 million
tales of cotton and plenty of
wlswat and qtiher farm con-
uodities, but is short on
fighting planes and other
wmr materials. Why not swap,

they will not want to fight.

T. R. McGuyer, Confederate Vet-
eran, Birthday March 14
Hon. T. R. McGuyog, the only
surviving Confederate veteran of
Delta County, who resides at his
eon’s home two miles west of
Cooper will be 91 years old next
Tuesday, March 14.
Uncle Rufus, as he is affection-
ately known by many people of
this county, is a man of remark-
able mentality, of unusual physi-
cal strength, and fortunate in-
deed this fine elderly gentleman
possesses many qoble traits of
true Christian. His long and use-
ful life is an inspiration to the
young people who know Imu. To
the men ancj women who are now
in the prime of life will do well
to follow his splendid example in
improving our conditions for the
benefit of the coming generation,
as he has done, last but not least,
our older citizens, whose hair has
turned grey and shoulders bent
with life's cares and responsibili-
ties, may look to him as a criter-
ion, who is sp calm, sergne and
cheerful amidst life’s teropestous
trials and temptations.
Our goocj friend, who wore the
Confederate grey uniform at the
early age of 16, likes to be active
in meeting people and in going
places. Last July in company with
his jon, Jim McGqyxr, of J'-aii
he attended the Gettysburg re-
union and enjoyed the occasion
fine. After returning home he
visited relatives and friends in
various parts of the State of
On last Friday morning in the
Delta County school parade, Uncle
Rufus, in company with another
outstanding elderly gentleman of
this county, Uncle Benny Clark,
led the march around the court
house square of Cooper.
Mr. McGuyer held up proudly
in his right hand, a small Confed-
erate flag, so appropriate and so
beautiful was the sentiment for
this great event.
Some time next summer or ear-
ly fall Pecan Gap expects to have
the greatest celebration in its en-
tire history, in the dedication of
the new $73,000 school building,
which is now under construction.
We extend a most cordial invita-
tion to Mr. McGuyer to come and
bring along his beautiful silk
Confederate flag, as we desire
him to make us a speech and we
want the flag on exhibition. Our
sincere birthday greetings to our
venepable friend, consists of the
following selected little poem:
Better things than ever,
Gladder hpurs and days,
More luck, more cheer,
More friends sincere
And happiness always.

Common Rules For
Listed By Doctor
AUSTIN, March 13.—The first
week of March showed 1,000
cases of influenza in Texas. Dr.
Geo. W. Cox, State Health offi-
cer, has issued the following state-
ment on the disease:
“In its present form the symp-
tons may range from a common
cold to high fever, back ache and
prostration. However, pneumon-
ia as a complication represents a
real hazard and it is well known
pneumonia is an exceedigly dan-
gerous disease The remedy is go
to bed upon the first appearance
of the cold and remain there un-
til advised by a physician before
one can safely get out of it.
“Every one should realize that
in its lightest form influenza can
very easily become a serious mat-
ter. Prevention is far better than
cure and the careful observance
of a few common sense rules will
materially strengthen lone’s resist-
ance to an attack of influenza.
Some of these rules are:
“1. So far as possible avoid
contacf with members of families
with oolds or influenza.
“2. Keep the feet dry.
“3. Wash the hands before
“4. Avoid unneccssa-y fatigue.
“5. See that your ail* entary
system is regular in action."

Mini Eth* Stoke* of Coopw
Of Million Cows
Needed In Texa*
COLLEGE STATION, March
13-—“Good, clean, wholesome
milk is one of the best foods
known for promoting health.
Milk supplies proteins, fats, min-
erals, and vitamins in forms which
are easily digested and unequalled
in (other foods,” W. V. Maddox,
dairyman of the Texas A. and M.
College Extension Service, points
out in a circular, C-139, “Whole-
some Milk on Texas Farms," just
off the press.
Almost one-fourth, or 121,000
of Texas’ farm families, have no
milk cows. This means that the
state needs an additional quarter
million dairy cows if farm fami-
lies are to have enough milk for
home needs, and also that dairy
production for home use can ex-
pand considerably in the state
without competing with commer-
cial dairy areas.
Maddox says Texas farm fami-
lies not only need more cows, but
that the cows now on hand need
to be cared for in a more efficient
way and that more care would
produce more and cleaner milk.
His circular lists in brief, concise
form the precautions to be ob-
served in keeping milk clean.
The publication, one of a series
in the Extension Service’s cam-
paign for increased home produc-
tion of quality foods, is available

Of Food In
Reaches New High
COLLEGE STATION, March
13.—“The statement that the
home production of food for the
500,000 Texas farm and ranch
families represents a potential
value of $250,000,000 a year, re-
cently made by Director William-
son, might sound fantastic, but
not when it is considered that
three items alone—fruits, vege-
tables, and eggs—produced by
72,039 club women and 4-H girls
for home in 1938, had a retail
value of $5,420,814," Jennie
C; mp, home production spe ialist
of the Texas A. and M. College
Extension Service, says.
Home demonstration club mem-
bers and 4-H girls in the 180
counties served by homo demon-
stration agents grew 105,867,675
pounds of fruits and vegetables
for home use during the past
year, she said. In 112 counties,
3,122 women and girls gathered
from three to five different har-
vests from their frame gardens.
Looking to the future, these
women and girls planted 702,171
fruit trees, and well over a mil-
lion peach seeds for budding
Farm poultry flocks that prtw
duced 4,337,530 dozen eggs were
