Texas agriculture has a new
giant. It covers more Texas acres
than cotton—long reigning king.
It is destined to grow bigger
And experts foresee a reshaping
of much of th? state's agriculture
because of this new mammoth
member of the farm crops.
It is grain sorghum—the plant
that turns Texas fields into pat-
terns of green rows in the spring,
and brilliant red in the uummei.
The Department of Agricul-
ture’s crop production summary,
just released, shows that during
the 10 years of 1947-56, Texas
farmers | lanted anout four mil-
lion acres per year lo grain sor-
But ip 1958, th v planted 7,-
892.000 aeies—nearly double th<
And w hile cotton is still the- big
money-maker among farm crop*
in Texas, the state's farmers
planted 5.400.000 acres to cotton
—two million acres less than the
grain sorghum production.

Stout and the youth walked
down the road, and had gone
some 300 yards from the house
when both decided their head
i scarves needed tightening to keep

tightened the scarf on Ander-
son’s head. Then the youngster
leaned his shotgun against his
side and attempted to tighten

“There are seventeen more bus-
ines* concerns in Red River |
County today than last year,”'
says George A. Giese of the Dal-
las office of Dun & Bradstreet.
Basing his facts upon a physi-
cal count of the January 1, 1959,
Dun A- Bradstreet Reference
Book, Giese points out that in
1958 246 businesses were listed
and today 263—an increase of 6.9
per cmt. '
The Reference Book, incident-
ally. lists only manufacturers,
wholesalers and retailers. It docs
not include some of the service
and professional businesses sueh
a beauty and barber shops and
stock and real estate brokers.
Thus, the figures for businesses
in Red River County would actu-
ally be higher than 263.
Clarksville had 155 listed, com-
pared to 136 a year ago, an in-
crease ot 13 9 per cent. This
leaves 28 other Red River Coun-
ty listings increase in other Red
River Countv towns, which were
