i: IZA--The MalakoH News, Thursday, Feb. S, 1961 Moisture remains a major concern for agricultural producers throughout ~East Texas. If current conditions con- tinue, a critical situation will exist not only with agricultural enterprises but also with cities which depend on lakes for their water supply. Some producers are beginning to run out of hay for their cattle, according to Wayne Taylor, area economist- management for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. This means that other feeds must be pur- chased to get the cattle through the remainder of the winter. The nutrition level of the cow herd is very important, especially during the breeding season. Although expenses should be kept as low as possible, proper nutrition must be maintained. If winter pastures show signs of o : (JACKSONVILLE)--Forest and grass : fire danger is rising.

" "Wildfire danger in this area is moderate at present but will rise : significantly with continued dry weather," said Dave Skove, district :: forester with the Texas Forest Service : in Jacksonville. :!

Although it's not always plentiful, water must have been on the minds of :. many Texas towns' founding fathers. :i There are 41 Texas towns named af- ,i tar springs; another 37 have the word ;: lake in their names; 17 towns are named for creeks, rivers or brooks. Community names also reflect Texans' :; preoccupation with the weather.

The odds for getting rain should be get- ting better every day and if the fer- tilizer is out, several days could be saved. Weed control in hay meadows and permanent pastures could be very im- portant this year, especially if dry weather continues. Fertilizer needs to be used by grasses and not by weeds. Some soil testing laboratories report an increase in the number of sell sam- plea being received for testing. This is a good indication that producers are taking a closer look at expendltures and trying to make the fertilizer dollar go farther. A soil test is an excellent management tool for both the forage and row crop producer. @ continues "Fortunately, winds have been fairly low and minimum relative humidities have stayed moderate," he declared. "We would be in a high fire danger situation, otherwise." Even with the moderate weather, however, Texas Forest Service crews fought 235 fires which burned 2169 acres through the first 13 days of this year. The TFS forester noted that many wildfires are caused by careless brush " and trash burning, and he listed several precautions persons who burn outdoors should observe. Burn in the morning when humidity is highest. Don't burn on windy days. Clear a line around your fire, and stay with it until it is completely out. "Public cooperation is essential," he stated. "People can help themselves -- and us - by burning debris safely and by reporting all suspected wildfires.

Blakeney said he is considering appointing Bill Frlzzell, Billy Norwood and John Buquoi to the board ff five members can serve.

"We use term 'criterion-referenced' simply because it is a short way of saying the answer to each question must lead back to a specific objective," Mrs. Orr explains. Ninth grade students who do not make a satisfactory "exit level" score may retake the test each year they remain in high school. However, they will not be required to take it more than once. Later attempts to improve scores and evaluate any remedial programs will be voluntary. The annual test program will be ad- ministered by specially-trained per- sonnel in each school district under the guidelines and supervision of the Texas Education Agency.
