IT MAY BE HIS LAST CHRISTMAS--Terry ain, 4, of Argenta, 111., hugs "Rinny," his favorite Christmas present. The clog was given to Terry by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Cam, as part of a special Christmas. It may be the last Christmas for Terry, who is suffering from a rare disease of the spine. (/P) EasiSand Asks Readinisiion To Drought Feed Program EASTLAND, Deo. 29-Word concerning the reinstatement of Eastland County in the drought emergency feed program is expected some time in January. Representatives of agricultural agencies in Die county made a formal request for · reinstallment. They are the county ASC committee, County Age'it J. M. Cooper, Soil Conservation Service and Farmers Home Administration. Application was made to the state drought committfee at College Station. If approved there, it will be forwarded to the secretary of agriculture for acceptance or. rejection. Eastland County has been accepted in this program two or three times in the past. The state drought committee has not been In session during the holidays but will meet early in January, according to word received by Emmett Powell of the ASC. "It is possible tliat we \sill have some word as to whether the committee gave its okay in the next two or three weeks,'' he said. If It is accepted and the secre- taiy ol agriculture gives approval oiKi, a grant will mean that ranchers can buy feed at slightly reduced prices, the government sharing in the cost for feed for basic herds. This arrangement, however, does not apply to "feeders." The purpose is to enable ranchers to keep their foundation herds. Signatures to Uie request in addi (ion to those of the ASC committee and the county agent included Home, Cole of Ilia FHA and E. E. McAlistGr of the Soil Conservation Service. The letter to the committee pointed out that drought conditions continue, with only 5.1 inches o[ rainfall in the last six months; that the feed crop !nst year was poor anc for hat most of the small grain winter grazing is dead, The application pointed out that t will be necessary for ranchers to uy more feed tnaii otherwise would have been the case and thai many of them will need assistance ,f they are to retain their basic iierds. 9-B THE ABILENE REPOUTER-NEWS Abilene, Texas, Friday Morning, December 30, 1955 Range Riders New Year's Show To Open at 1 P.M.
