DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Thursday, April 15,1971-§ Sanderson Woof Prices Worst Since Depression By IMA JO FLEETWOOD News-Herald Staff Wool prices paid at the first sealed wool bid sale at the Sanderson Wool Commission Co. this year were low and demand was poor Wednesday, Del Rio woolmen who attended the sale said today.

Del Rio-:vvoolmen said prices were the lowest since the Depression Years; during that time, they noted, prices went even lower, to 6 to 8 cents a pound at the worst but quantities of wool moved then, going to the East, Now there is no demand for the wool, local men said. * l • ...» Joe Almond, president and manager of the Del Rio Wool and Mohair Co.; Virgil Cauthorn, president and manager of the Producers Wool and Mohair Co., Blanks Oglesby, wool buyer; T.J.

Eight Receive Awards At LAFB Graduation Eight members of Laughlin Air Force Base Undergraduate Pilot Training Class 71-07 were honored with special awards during the graduation of the class Tuesday in the base chapel. The awards were presented by Col. Guy E. Hairston Jr., 3646th Pilot Training Wing commander. The officers were commended by Major General John R. Murphy, vice-commander, Air Training Migrants Finding Fewer Jobs Open Fewer and fewer jobs are available for theiri, but Texas migratory workers will again hit the harvest trail this year for the states in the north and west, Btadje Smith, 'TEC spokesman, told the News-Herald today. Texas Employment Commission wants to help them make sure they have jobs before they leave, by using the facilities of the Annual Worker Plan. This way, they won't be stranded far from home when a job plays out and there is no other work they can move on to, Smith said. "Jobs and itineraries for most Texas migrants are scheduled by Texas Employment Commission, weeks ahead of the season, advised Augustin Estrada Jr. of the TEC office located at 455 Quarry Street in Eagle Pass. "Workers can have stable employment, ^better wages, working and living conditions wherever they go. The days of the migrant appear to be numbered. Demands for their services dwindles with increasing use of machinery. This year, the economic downturn will make more local labor available than in the past, further cutting the demand for migrants, Estrada said. Last year, the number of Texas migrants working in other states declined by 30 per cent from the previous year, continuing- a trend. It is expected to decline still further in the future. "Free wheelers," migrant crew leaders who maintain employment relations directly with employers in other states, showed up in larger numbers than expected, and that made last year's job shortages more acute. Many of the workers were stranded in* the demand states when no more jobs were available. Others had to return to Texas much earlier than usual, with much less money. Migrants who work through Texas Employment Commission can be assured of more continuous work, at better wages and under better living conditions. Most employers in demand states relay their job needs and conditions through TEC. These jobs are filled each year, once the labor needs of Texas agriculturalists have been met. Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin expect a loss of some 16,000 job opportunities for interstate migratory workers in agriculture this year. Oregon, Washington and Idaho also expect a drop in migrant job opportunities. These are the states in which most Texas migrants work each year. To assure agricultural employment in those states, crew leaders and family heads should contact their local Texas Employment Commission office, to see if it has interstate clearance orders which are acceptable to the workers, and meets wage and housing regulations, Smith said.
