They can close the season or reduce tho limit allowed to be secured. Agreements Necessary i The speaker said that a land•owner could not control the wildlife dn his own farm because it .will migrate outside of his lines, but if the neighbors In a community band together, It will give the wildlife a range. In discussing necessary provisions for the Increasing of wildlife, it was pointed out that stray house cats were the No. One enemy. Protection was given as the first thing 'necessary. Food and shelter was -noted as the second requirement while control of predators was "ranked third. The harvest of the •crop was noted as the fourth in .Importance. He said that a regulated "take" was more desired than •a closed season for the landowners would likely lose interest unless he could hunt occasionally. Ha suggested that in the area, a survey Be made by the landowners of the number of birds, etc., and then decide how many were necd- 'ed for stock and hunt the remaining as the crop of that season. "Give the wildlife the same pro. tectlon and attention as you do 'your livestock," the speaker urged.

Callender said the extension service of A. and M. college had no police powers In this work and did »not desire any such authority, preferring to conduct and sponsor it on an educational basis as other sections of extension work by that •Institution. • ....... The speaker pointed out that Texas had been ISO years getting "the wildlife into Its "present mess" % and said it could not be returned "to ita former, status for .many ., \rears.-He referred t& the statistics \ Showing that millions of dollars iper year spent by the sportsmen In {.hunting and fishing. ,' Attention was called to the huge "•ums expended annually to combat Mnsects and bugs, and the speaker "•pointed out the large amount of In- 'sects devoured by birds of all types •"and kinds.-He said that before the "country was developed, nature kept 'the different types of wildlife In • balance, but when man Invaded Jthe country, wildlife was rushed Tbaok and away before the advance of cultivation and civilization and .was now decidedly out of balance.

"Your Doctor wants to KEEP you well"-Is emphatically and literally true, both of the Individual physician and of medical scientists in general. The administration of drugs, surgery and 'treatment of disease are by •no means the sole functions of the modern doctor and scientist. He Is just as active In the prevention of disease •I in curing It. Spreading the gospel of health rules and •hygienicliving li prevention of Ill-health; establishment of clinics for the control of Infant mortality Is prevention of unnecessary death; tuberculosis societies and sanitorla, cancer institutes, and hundreds of scientific research bureaus — all are laboring to prevent as well as cure disease. Prenatal care Is to prevent unnecessary suffering and death; school supervision of health Is to promote better bodies and minds and prevent disease; all were worked but by doctors In their battle for better health and less sickness. The proper drainage of mosquito-breeding marshland is prevention, but back of that piece of public-health engineering, the scientist had to discover that malaria was caused by mosquitoes..' Administering vaccines and serums prevent! smallpox, diphtheria, typhoid, whooping cough and other diseases, but years of patient work by medical men went Into perfecting these Instruments of "preventive" medicine. Telling ypu over and over to "have a complete examination once a year" Is "preventive medicine," In that It locates trouble IN TIME and helps your doctor "to fte«p you well.

ELLlS Roosevelt tatesmen and have several British laid upon the aramount Importance of religion. There la a new trend In our Imea; a turning toward religion and a broadening of the base of lemocracy on the foundations of Christian character. Our eyes are lelng opened to the simple truth hat only good people can make a good world. The cleverness of diplomats is no substitute for :he character of democracy. Even he politicians are seeing, in the ight of many evidences of a widespread religious concern, that a revival of real religion would do more for their lands than the enactment of any new legislation, Looking- to the Foundation With the timeliness of today's newspaper, we have these principles . expressed by our old 'riend, Simon Peter; who Is but repeating the strain that runs hroughout the Bible. This Letter which we study was written it least twenty years after the ncldont In Peter's life which was :he basis of last week's Lesson. The tireless man of action has Decome the old man of counsel. He "sees life clear and sees It whole." His concern ranges over a wide geographical area, as the opening words of his Letter show. They should be read with map In hand. Hand and McNally have lately put out a dollar Atlas of Bible Lands that would be useful to Bible students. Peter's counsels are all timed at everyday living; and they range from the conduct of women books, "In My Time," by Sllsley Huddleston, who has been ono of the topflight foreign correspondents of the past generation. His book portrays all the famous public men on the International scene during this first third of a century. Mostly it Is a record of disillusion: the littleness of the so-called great ones; and the futility of their clever maneuver- Ings, is laid bare, as we are a,d- mltted behind the scenes at Geneva and other world capitals, The book seems to be ending upon a note of despair; when suddenly, in the final pages, a group of Christian 'cadet's enter the picture and the author himself Is "changed." Then, with a new faith and a new philosophy, he joins the company of those whose lives God has made over into peace. STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE IS LOSERjmE FIGHT INJUNCTION AGAINST M'DON- ALD IN CITRUS FRUIT PRICE FIXING UPHELD SAN ANTONIO, March 15.—(/P) —The state department of agriculture lost Its fight to fix minimum prices on citrus fruit here today when the fourth court of civil appeals upheld an Injunction obtained by a group of Rio Grande Valley Citrus exchanges from District Judge Rogers Blalock of Hidalgo county. The appellate court's ruling, written by Associate Justice W. O. Murray, uphold the district court's injunction restraining J. E. McDonald, state commissioner of agriculture, and other officers of the department from revoking the licenses of a group of fruit handlers for failure to abide by McDonald's minimum price order, from making assessments to finance the citrus fruit program, from examining the books and records of the hand- And what, a company of them] ^^ tof ^ea!

They bombard our modern fleshly conceptions of "self-expression," and prescribe a following "in His steps" as the Christian Way of life. They have clear counsel for the • person who Is misunderstood and persecuted, and for the other who, self-engrossed, only thinks he is misunderstood. It was in the bloody days of Nero that this Letter was penned; and therefore it has much advice and comfort for Christians undergoing persecution. In all Its utterances the book deals with the sure foundations upon which the good life may be established. An Old Program of Peace A bit of literature that belongs equally to Christian and Jew is quoted b" Peter in our Lesson, a fragment from the thirty- fourth Psalm, written by David; one of the comfort psalms that everybody should know. Even this short selection presents a program for peace, based upon the character and providence of God. "He that would love life, And gee good days, It Is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr.—Napoleon. * * * We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.— Romans 8:28. * * * To thine own self be true, And it mumst follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. —Shakespeare. * • » Heredity is nothing but stored environment—the sum of all bur past environments.—Burbank.

It Involves the very right to contract. The legislature did not place such a pro- ision In the act." This referred o the Texas citrus marketing ct of May 17, 1937, under which McDonald sought to fix the price •nlnima. The opinion stated that the courts should not write It here by implication." No Limitation. The qplnion further stated that the act provides In effect that he commissioner Is not to place any limitation on the quanity of Itrus fruit to be transported In nterstate or foreign commerce. ?he commissioner could be justi- ield in fixing a minimum price only on the theory that It would imit the quantity of citrus fruit o be ransported in intrastate commerce, and If it would have hat effect on Intrastate commerce, by the same token it would limit the quantity of citrus fruit to be transported in In- erstate and foreign commerce, a thing which the act Itself says he should not do." The appellate court held that 'the commissioner having acted Let him from evil, refrain his tongue And his lips that they speak i.o "ulle: And let him turn away from evil, and do good; Let him seek peace, and pursue It. For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, And his ears unto their sup- pllcatl. „• But the face of the Lord is aga,lnst them that do evil." A Tunisian Saint's Vision Thanks to the Influence of Christianity, the world has steadily improved. M!-i Tarbell quotes Cyprian, a third century bishop of Carthage, in what Is now the much-publicised Tunis, as he described his vision of that long ago world: "If I could ascend some high mountain and look out over the wide lands, you know very well what I would see. Brigands on the high roads, pirates on the seas, in the amphitheaters men murdered to please applauding crowds, selfishness and cruelty, misery and despair under all roofs. It is a bad world. But in the midst of it I have found a quiet and holy people who have learned a great secret. They are despised and persecuted, hut they care not. They are the masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people are the Christians—and I am one of them." Joy or Large sections of our world have substituted jazz for joy. The titillating of nerves has taken the place of the deep peace and Inward happiness- -which Christians know. Surface sensations—movement, speed, activity, excitement—are the goal of the shallow-minded; who do" not perceive that their standards of life affect the larger well-being of the whole. They have accepted tinsel fbr gold. For wholeness and holiness of life, and for the abiding peace that outrides all storms, Peter prescribed simply—Christ. Christ the Saviour. Christ the reward- er—He Is the secret of the good life. Our world will never "find Itself" until it finds Him.
