COLLEGE STATION—Texas had 62 one-variety cotton communities in 1937 which involved more than 300.000 acres. E. A. Miller, Texas A&M College extension service agronomist, pointed out in his annual report Saturday. There were 34 such communities in 1936. Miller said. His figures did not include a num- \ ber of large plantation and cotton breeding blocks which are planted , to cotton of a quality variety and j which virtually are one-variety communities. County agricultural agents, in a survey conducted by Miller, estimated more than 200 one-variety cotton communities will operate in 1938. Then counties will function on a one-variety county wide basis. Miller, with F E. Lichte, exten- j sion cotton gin specialist, visited j 160 of the states principal cotton ! producing counties and held 190 \ meetings devoted to cotton improvement during 1937. The meetings were attended by 23.511 farmers1 and others interested in the cotton industry. Practical Improvements At many of the meetings. Miller and Lichte were joined by R F. Saunders of the U. S. bureau of plant industry's cotton breeding station at Greenville, and by representatives of the Texas A&M agricultural experiment station. One variety cotton communities were discussed at the meetings as the most practical means of improving the staple and uniformity \ n rl OtVlPPQ Texas cotton. It was pointed out ^IIIU WtllCIO that 22 8 p(?r cent of the 1936 Texas HIDALGO—Pupils in the Hidalgo. Texas, independent school district are carrying on correspsend- ence with children on every continent and in many states of the LTnion, according to G. P. Baker, superintendent of schools The pupils have letters from such widely separated sections as India. South Africa, Argentina and Sweden. The sixth grade of the school in a social unit has exchanged gift boxes with children from east, west and north Texas. They have received east Texas hickory nuts, black walnuts, sweet gum. pine cones and dog wood blossoms. They have west Texas plants and Panhandle w’heat. In return they have sent Valley fruit and flowers. Much of their information concern- mg Valley history and resources has been received from the columns of the Brownsville Herald and literature from the Brownsville chamber of commerce, Superin- j tendent Baker states. In the social science classes in all' grades the students construct any- j thing from an Indian village to a winter scene in the Swiss Alps. The pupils in the physical education dr-1 r»ertment dance native Mexican i dances with gay abandon. The school offered some of their dances for the Charro Days Fiesta and was the only Hidalgo county school to enter the pet parade. The group preceived third pr *. offered by Ben Freudenstein n the line of pets the school at different times has had everything from rabbits to alligators. Valley Youth Taken For Navy Enlistment McALLEN — Roy Cecil Rogers. McAllen, has been selected for enlistment in the United States Navy under the Rio Grande Valley's quota during .lie month of April, Leland E Park, recruiting officer in Harnngen. announced Friday Rogers will leave April 7 for Houston, where he will take final physical examination, and if found qualified for enlistment will be transferred to the Naval Training Station at San Diego Calif.

Votes will be cast at two boxes, one at the city hall and the other at the office of M. D. Cavazos on cotton now produced in foreign countries.'’ Miller said. “Many farmrrs remembered the time when a Texas bill of lading on a bale of cotton assured that bale of premium above the market.” Miller add. “Spinners wanted the inch staple and the uniformity of Texas cotton and were willing to pav for it.” Much of the credit for the advance of the extension service’s one- variety program during 1937 should go to organizations and individuals, connected with the cotton industry. who cooperated in the movement. Miller’s report pointed out. BROWNSVILLE— A mail order catalog makes a very good dictionary for Spanish-American primary students! This fact was brought out strongly during the »ectional meeting of nearly 400 teachers of Spanish speaking children during the South Texas Teachers Association convention here Friday. Advantages of the catalog lie in its illustrated and simply worded pages, the Spanish teacher delegation decided during a round table FARM BOOKS ARE LISTED Literature Available For Valley Growers discussion which followed four short demonstrations plays by Latin-Arr.erican young sters of Brownsville schools. Pictures were cited as one of the most practical and convenient methods of illustrating lessons to the Mexican children “A vast majority of Latin-American students never enter college, and it is our duty to prepare them for vocational occupations durinq the elementary grades.’’ Galligan declared. William OH?ir. Mercedes, was elected by acclamation to serve as chairman of the Teachers of Spanish Children for 1939.

Polk county, a close _ ~“ j second. Interest stimulated by the Mother Neff Park contest contributed considerably to the success of the program in those communities. Agents, Teachers Assist The statewide cotton contest for 4-H club members attracted entries from more than 2,000 boys whose demonstrations brought much at- testion to the production of quality cotton. “County agricultural agents were ably seconded by vocational teachers in setting up one-variety communities and in laying the ground work for future cotton improvement.” Miller said. The cotton clashing act. passed by congress in 1937, will be in operation in 1938. provided necessary appropriations are made, and its provisions probably will tend to correct the “hog round’’ buying situation. Miller said. Under the act. one-variety communities after qualifying with the terms of the act. will be able to get free classification on the cotton 'hey produce. “Once farmers receive the proper price for quality cotton, our cotton, as a whole wm II show a marked improvement.” Miller McGREGOR.
