liAtlffN Swftday, Mar* H 19*1 Texas Farmers Keep Hoping For Break in Damp Weather COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (AP) — Texas farmers hope spring will change the weather, even if if arrived with some of the worst of (he season. John Hutchison, director of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, said more moisture would delay further outdoor activities and keep planting and field work at the prevailing slow rale. Hutchison noted that the pressing need is for open, drying weather. Only limited acre- ages of corn and grain sorghum have been planted and about the time fields begin to dry. Texas gets more rain. Western and northwestern areas, where ' planting is done later, are not yet hurting so badly. Ranges would make rapid improvement and grazing would soon become very good, ho said, with good growing weather. District agents gave Hutchison these reports: Snows and rains in the Panhandle have brought moisture to the adequate level.

LEUBSDORF j Associated Press Writer I WASHINGTON (AP) - Thei I Senate has approved a code of i ! ethics for its members and top j ! employes but the lone senator! i opposing it called the new code a fraud. I adequate to surplus. j In Southeast and 'the Upper: Gulf Coast area, 14 counties re-; ported adequate moisture while j five have a surplus. Oats are making good growth but some freeze damage was reported in Harris County. From two to 30 per cent of the corn acreage has been planted and some rice has been planted in Galveston County. Clovers are providing grazing and ryegrass is starting to produce. Livestock are in poor to good condition depending upon the amount of feed they have received. Agricultural activities were picking up in South Texas. Drying conditions prevailed over the past few days. The vegetable harvest is moving well and > considerable grain sorghum and cotton have been planted.! Peaches in the Winter Garden j and citrus in the Valley are in! heavy bloom and overall conditions are.much improved. The comment came from Sen. George D. Aiken of Vermont, the Senate's senior Republican, as he cast the only negative vote Friday. The code was approved 67 to 1. » Other senators who had called for strict standards also said the adopted measure falls far short of what the public expects. The code stems largely from the scandals involving former Senate aide Robert G. Baker and Sen. Thomas J, Dodd, D- Conn. "I'm not going to be a party to perpetuating a fraud on the public that we are purifying ourselves when we actually are making it worse, Aiken said. He called the code "the farce of the year." Among senators who supported the code, Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., said "it makes a perceptible but not significant improvement in the recent standards of ethics." Sen, Wayne Morse, D-Ore., said, "I regret that the bill falls far short of a full-disclosure bill. "I think the American people are entitled to full disclosure," Morse said. Clark and Sen. Clifford P. Case, R-N.J., unsuccessfully sponsored a plan that would have required senators and members of their families to publicly disclose all of their financial assets and liabilities. But the code finally adopted provided for part-public and part-private disclosure. The public portion will detail gifts of over $50 and fees exceeding $300 for such activities as lecturing, writing and television appearances. It also limits solicitation and use of campaign funds as well as the outside activities of Senate employes. More detailed financial information, including income tax returns, the amount and sources of fees and payments for business activities and debts of more than $5,000, will be filed annually in a sealed envelope to be kept by the comptroller general in case any question of unethical behavior is raised. Aiken, Clark and Case were especially upset by the final adoption of an amendment which punched a big hole in a previously voted ban on use of campaign contributions for office expenses. The amendment was sponsored by Sens. Ralph Yarborough, D-Texas, and Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y. It permits use of campaign contributions to pay for trips home, postage, newsletters, television programs and newspaper subscriptions. Case charged it blurs the distinction between campaign and office expenses and permits amounts on public relations." Nationally advertised In Good Hvuttknfliii tni H«UM i Suit* Rimodillng Cuid».

YOUR MONIY IUY5 MORI AT OUR CQMLITI BfPRQOM STORI WESTERN MATTRESS IROWNWOOB J»h, m NOW This Spring ... Learn to Read 3-5 Times Faster HOW FAST DO YOU R6AD? ffy fhii Orte-Miftute fetf START HIRE Reading Dynamics is a discovery, nof art invention People have been reading rapidly for centuries. Boswell noted that Johnson read as fast as he coulc turn the pages. H. L. Mencken could read d 250- i>age book in an hour. Theodore Roosevelt rede fhree books a day while in the White House. John F. Kennedy read well over 1,200 words per minute —four times faster than the average American! The saddest commentary on normal redding is the fomilidr, "Can't seem to concentrate when I read. Sometimes I read a whole page and can't remember seeing anything. Guess I was daydreaming." This all-too-common comment is caused directly by slow reading, boring reading. People who read repidly generally have better concentration and better com- srehension because their reading speed is keeping pace with their thinknig speed. Once you learn to read by sight only, you will be able to read groups of words, whole ideas with each glance. It is remarkable that noly in reading do you limit your eyes to a single symbol. You look at a painting entirely, not from left to right, not a section at a time, unless you are making a study of it. When you stare straight ahead at a television set, you can see things on either side without moving your head or eyes. This is peripheral vision. You ore born with it. (average reader. 250 w.p.m. reads to this point in 60 seconds) Usually it is the slow reader who claims that the fast reader must be skipping words. The slow reader points to the old-fashioned reading courses that teach their students how to be expert scanners. "See," he says, "that's how you read it fast, you skip most of the words." Old Slow Reader is right! Test the comprehension of the most proficient scanner, and the best he can do—and then inconsistently—is to give you a rough idea of the story line. He can't remember details. He loses all the flavor of the writing. He is hopelessly lost in technical material such as Dhysics, law or medicine. In Reading Dynamics, speed is tripled by reading three words at once . . . not by reading one of the three words. The average person reads about 250 to 400 words per minute. By tripling his rate—a .guaranteed result of the Evelyn Wood course, the student reads between 750 and 1,200 words per minute. Within this range, he begins to experience for the first time the thrill of dynamic comprehension! t is like watching a movie. An author takes many pages to describe all the action of one scene. Yet on film, this scene takes only a few minutes. At once you see people, clothing, furniture, and yet you hear the dialogue. This is \vhat happens when you read dynamically. The pages are read at a pace that more closely approximates reality. Students say they feel like they are there, watching it all happen. (With reading dynamics you could have read three times this amount) THE INTERNATIONALLY FAMOUS EVELYN WOOD READING DYNAMICS INSTITUTE INVITES YOU TO ATTEND A FREE DEMONSTRATION OF THIS UNIQUE METHOD Where you will: see a documented film that includes actual interviews with Washington Congressmen who have taken the course. learn how we can help you to faster reading:, improved comprehension, greater recall. • have an opportunity to have your questions answered. IS IT SIMPLY A PROMOTION STUNT? tesults have been reported in Time, Newsweek, Business Week, and Esquire, Demonstrators have appeared on television with Jack Parr, Gary Moore and Art Linkletter. Describing Reading Dynamics' impact on some of our lation's legislators, Time said, "Washington has seen noth-l ng like it since the days when Teddy Roosevelt read hree books a day and ran the country at the same time," HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COURSES? S'o machines are used. You learn, instead, to use your! land as a pacer—a tool you always have with you, Con- •cnlional rapid reading courses aspire to 450-600 words »er minute. Most Reading Dynamics graduates can read between 1,500 and 3,000 words per minute, and many go even higher, •GUARANTEE Dynamics will refund the tuition of any student who fails to at least triple his reading index (a multiple of rate and per cent score) during: the course as measured by our standardized testing program. This guarantee is valid so long as the student attends each lesson and maintains the requisite home drill at least one hour daily at levels specified by his instructor.
