'16.— (Spl.)—Cotton farmers must do everything possible to get the utmost return from their 1939 crop, E. A. Miller,. agronomist of the Texas A. and M. College Extension Service, said In listing points that would help to increase in- The biggest gain, Miller believes, can be made- through improvement In quality. He urged community, county, and area organization along the one-variety line. 'This Is important not only because quality and uniformity will bring in more cash per acre, but we need improvement if we are o edvelop our cotton markets and meet foreign competition," he pointed out. Soil and water conservation will bring j results, the agronomist stated, and quoted increased annual net returns of $6.51 an acre ob- ained at the Spur Agricultural Experiment Substation from terraced land farmed on the contour over land farmed with the TOWS running down hill In a 12 years test. "It Is good crop Insurance to real cotton seed with 2 per cent oeresan at the rate of three ounces -per -bushel," Miller said. Increases In yield through this iractlce were 25 per cent at X3ol- ego Station, 15 per cent at Tem)le, 9 per cent In the Brazos bot- om, and 4 per cent at Lubbock, ecent experiment tests show. Commercial fertilizer and manure on sandy and sandy loam oils have proved profitable, and he urged farmers to consult coun- y agricultural agents for local ecommendatlons as to amounts to ie. - • 'Insect control is going to be mportant in 1939, and no farm- ir should forget proper seedbed ^reparation and cultivation," Milor concluded. 7 uneral Services At Waco Sunday For Former Corsicanan WACO, Jan. 18.—(Spl.)—Funer- l services for Mrs. A.

Syphilis, which also Is one of the main, If not the greatest heart- crlppler, is being waged against energetically," Dr. Cox further states. "However, In spite of tho public health .problems associated with heart disease, and ' the successful ' attacks being m a d' e against them, many of the premature deaths caused by ailments of this vital organ could be eliminated if the factor of Intelligent personal co-operation were more generally applied. "One's life habits sometimes influence the heart. For example, if stimulants are excessively used, and susceptibility to their mfiu- ence Is more than average, the effect over a long period of time can result in heart impairment. Again, over exercise or any other undue strain on the adult heart can affect It seriously. Moreover, too much fondness for Food by those of middle-age or jeyond who already are overweight certainly is no boon to :he heart, and with other causes may be a contributory factor In embarrassing Its action. "Or to express It positively, the reasonable application of the rules of hygenlo living aid In keeping the bodily mechanism, Including the heart, In good condition. And If to a sensible routine of living be added an annual physical check-up by a physician (a procedure that frequently makes possible the early detection of weakness, If existing, and the application of cure or care) may premature cases of fatal heart disease could be avoided. Therefore, to keep the whole body functioning healthfully, Including the heart, is an objective in which every adult should be most interested. boys and five Texas Rangers who ceaselessly guard -the house and Its occupants.

In a special message to congress, Mr. Roosevelt said the board's duties would Include recommendations for disposition of surplus real estate owned by the government. He added It would also make recommendations regarding "the situation in different communities adversely affected by the loss of tax revenue on land purchased or acquired by the federal government." The president said the executive order carried out a recommendation of a special committee named by him in 1935 to study federal ownership of real estate and its bearing on local taxation, The board will consist of one representative each of the treasury procurement division, the -departments of agriculture, commerce, Interior, justice, navy and war, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the bureau of the budget. These members will be appointed by the heads of the departments. The treasury department representative will serve as temporary chairman pending selection of a permanent head. The president's order requires! maintenance by the procurement division of a permanent current record of all federal real estate. It also, requests executive departments and agencies contemplating acquisition of real estate to find out from the procurement division whether any property owned by the government might be available for the purpose contemplated. In all such cases the departments would be required to confer first with the real estate board. The committee's report showed that the federal government owns approximately 20 per cent of' all the land in the United States. Its holdings In the middle of 1937 were tabulated at 394,657,721 acres of land, valued, with Improvements, at $4,696,062,000. It consists mainly of parks, grazing lands, wild life refugees and similar acreage and Is located In all of the states and In 2,638 of the 3,071 counties In the country. Holdings vary greatly from state to state, running as high as 82 per cent of Nevada and as low as .1 of 1 per cent in Iowa. The report estimated property taxes on the federal land would amount to $91,051,374 at 1037 valuations, but .pointed out that he states receive -much larger sums from the federal government in various forms of aid for relief, highways and other purposes.

Instead the grey haired Briton, upon whose aging and slender shoulders rests the great weight of leadership of European democracy in these critical days, presented a stiff neck to fascist claims. That is one of the two important developments of the conference In the eternal city. And In a broader sense, the parley wasn'l negative since It brought out this vital change In the relations between the totalitarian states and the democracies. The other development of note was the apparent quick recognition by the ever-watchful and astute Hitler of this startling about- face. The nazl chlefaln Is reliably reported to have stepped in after listening at long distance to the conversations and urged Mussoll- no to keep the-:peace for a y8ar before Insisting that Italy's '"natural aspirations" be met. That move of Der Fuehrer isn't hard to interpret. If It comes to a showdown, he must back his fascist ally—and Hitler has other things on his mind at the moment. There are two excellent reasons why the nazl leader shouldn't want to get mixed up In trouble with the democracies right now. One Is that ho Is generally credited with intending to try to gain control of the Russian Ukraine In the spring. The other is that, while he might chance a fight with one nation, he Isn't ready for a general European conflict, which is what a clash between the democracies and the dictatorships would mean. Nobody else is ready, for that matter. LEGISLATURE URGED RATIFY RIO GRANDE WATERJOMPACT AUSTIN, Jan.
