Paga Four THE MALAKOFF NEWS Friday, November 29, 1963 1tl l~l ovo, o This nation has an abundance of two strategic defense items-- Armed Forces and Agriculture. The first gets much deserved public praise while the second is generally misunderstood a n d harshly criticized. Yet, our agricultttral abun- dance is just as important a de- fense reserve as our military might. And the farmer plays just as big a role in national de- fense as our fighting men. We all understand and don't complain about the. fact that over 50c of every tax dollar goes into military spending. But a I~tt4mm~ml~B ~ mmD4mmD~,e,qm~.~gm~t Dr. Lulah DeGnath OPTOMETRIST Eut Side Squa .x l b Ideal for working girls, couples, small families. Your dishes come out much cleaner, more sanitary than washing by hand! Rolls to sink and cupboard --stores almost anywhere. BUILT AS ONLY ZENITH WOULD BUILD IT! ILL MALAKOFF, TEXAS host of people get indignant over the 6 cents which goes to pro- mote a healthy farm economy-- and this 6 cents has performed production and defense miracles that are the envy of the world. The confusing cloud of con- troversy that surrounds the American farmer tends to ob- ~ scure the fact that an abundance of foodstuffs is our greatest as- set. Without food, you don't have anything. You don't have i the power to wage a sustained war nor power to maintain a stable peace. And this nation couldn't possibly be enjoying the level of prosperity existing today. "Is food a "scandalous sur- plus?" When viewed in the same light, all those guns and planes and military men in the armed forces today are actually sur- plus items. They are in the same category as the wheat, corn and cotton we have stored in warehouses. "Oh", some will argue, "There's a difference! We need the mil- itary men and equipment to de- fend us." That's true. But we also need the food in production and on reserve as a strategic item. And stockpiling food is a good deal less expensive than maintaining the army, the navy and the air force. It is surprising to see how many politicians and business leaders look on food as a non- strategic item. Yet, it is an ad- mitted fact, that agricultural fail- ures in Russia are the main cause in the breakdown of the Com- munist time-table to enslave the world. So it appears that farmers are continually being "city-slicked" in regard to telling everybody the difference between surpluses and strategic reserves. And those who criticize agricultural pro- gram costs are completely un- aware of the enormously great- er expenses which the govern- ment incurs by subsidizing the post office, the air lines, the shipping lines, the railroads, and hundreds of other businesses and industries. Food, after all, is the mightest weapon for war and peace that we have. By HAROLD SPANN | County Agent J I I We can hardly say the drought I has been broken, but the rains of I late gave all of us a boost. Dry I seeded oats are Deginning ~o I come up and we see clovers and -[winter grasses showing up in pastures. Much of the talk around our office and with farmers of late is winter feed rations. Some 300 cattle producers h a v e already signed up for the emergency feed grain and are waiting for deliv- ery notices. Don Currey of Leagueville is one of many producers doing a good job of self feeding feeding meal and salt along with min- eral and vitamin "A". He plans to try one herd in a pasture where there is little grazing on a salt ration with ground mild added. We like to see a balance of salt meal, and mild in a 1-1-1 ratio with a progressive increase in mild as forage depleted. Mr. O. T. Woodard of Opelika said Friday he measured 4.50 inches of rain during the week. He is planning to sow Elbon rye to get some winter grazing. This is the best route at this time, ac- cording to our area agronomist at Mt. Pleasant. The Elbon rye, which is a small grain, has the ability to withstand w i n t e r freezes as well as produce eadlier grazing than either clovers, vetch, rye grass or oats. PROGRAM PLANS FOR 1964 Several members of the Hen- derson County Program Building Committee met last Thursday night to adopt plans of work by sub-committees for 1964. A fine group of officers were elected for the coming year including: Woodrow Walker, chairman; Joe B r o w i n g, vice-chairman; and Mrs. Louise Calvin as secretary. You all know the fine work of Woodrow in all areas of agri- culture, youth, civic and com- munity activities. Joe Browning. has served faithfully on a num- ber of committees. At present he is chairman of the County Screw- worm Eradication Program, is a director of the Henderson Coun- ty Cattlemen's Association and one of our best beef and pasture~ demonstrators. Mrs. Calvin is an outstanding 4-H Adult 4-H club leader and mother of four 4-H'ers in the Eustace club. She has served on the county 4-H club committee for 3 years and is the president of the Henderson Coun- ty 4-H Leader Organization. We feel like this group will do you an outstanding job in 1964. The program adopted will con- tinue many of the fine activities already underway and will ini- tiate others that will add strength to the development of o u r county. DISTRICT 4-H COUNCIL The agent was glad for the op- portunity of attending the dis- trict Five 4-H Club Council meet- ing in Gilmer with our county delegate on November 16th, Jo- lone Lewis, delegate representing Henderson County during 1963. In the election of district of- ficers, Jolene was in the run off for secretary. Competition is keen for these elected positions and the young people who are elected have out- standing talent and ability. When Buick builds a LeSabre Buick builds a high-priced car, and puts a 10w price on it. Lots of cars are in LeSabre's price class, but that's where the resemblance ends. For instance: Does anybody else in LeSabre's class treat you to that gentle Buick ride or impressive Buick performance and new gas economy? No. And who else gives you 15- inch wheels, finned aluminum front brakes, extra cushioning for middle-seat travelers, and separate heat ducts and controls for the rear seat? Right again: Nobody in LeSabre's field but LeSabre. If all this makes you think a LeSabre would look awfully nice in your garage, you should see how nicely it fits a budget. You know who to see about it, of course: your Buick dealer. Who else? Above all, it's a Buick SEE YOUR LOCAL AUTHORIZED BUICK DEALER. AUTHORIZED BUICK DEALERS IN THIS AREA: I Ro, i Co.

We invite you to send your problem letters direct to her, Bo] 113, Corsicans, Texas.) Dear Jan: I am troubled with my neigh- bors. Every time we step otK they hang their heads out the window. My husband and my- self have had a few spats of late and he left town for about three weeks. Word got out' that he was getting a divorce My husband threw a folwer pot at me once and my next door neigh- bor had her head hung out and she scattered it all over the neighborhood he beat me with a club. Tell me what I should do with neighbors like these. I can't move because our rent is oo cheap. Upset Dear Upset: I don't call throwing a flowe~ pot a play thing. What if he had hit you? I think your husband needs taming, not the neighbors. Dear Jan: My wife has a pesky pooch which is expecting. She is in- deed a funny duck. She makes me have complete silence when the hound is in the living room. This dog has her bluffed, but good She will shake and shiver when I start talking. I do be- lieve this rout would break up our home. She doesn't want me around. Can you think of an an-i swer? I hate to move out and, too, I would hate to haul that dog off. Wanta Chat Dear Wanta: Be a little understanding. Af- ter all, having a family is some; thing. If you would show your wife as much attention as the dog you would get as much at- tention.

Homer Garrison Jr di- rector of the State Department Of Public Safety, told Governor Connally, "It is almost certain that the death toll in traffic in Texas for 1963 will be the great- est on record. "From July 5th to November 8th, there was an average in- crease of motorcides of 8 per cent over the same period in. 1962. On this basis, a projec- tion to the end of this year in- dicates a death t011 of 2,615 which would exceed the 1956 record of 2,611." In reply Connally issued his ideas on priority traffic needs:, 1. Improve competence and re- sponsibility of the drivers by re- vision of present obsolete driver licensing law. 2.
