q, 10. S«. n Lubbeek, tT«r.), EvMttnej Journal, Wad., May 27, If53 Strong Winds Dim Wheat Prospects In High Plains Region Readings Of 100 Continue AUSTIN BS—Hot, windy weather speedily ate up soil moisture in Texas this week as farmers returned to their fields for planting, replanting and cultivation. The U. S. Department of Agriculture reported Wednesday that wheat prospects continued to fade as the strong winds and high temperature took the scant moisture which fell on the high plains two weeks ago. Afternoon temperatures over the state moved steadily upward, with a large part of West Texas recording 100 degrees-plus. However, the open weather was timely to complete filling and mature the prospective bumper small grain crop in North Texas. Over much of East Texas and along the upper coast field work was resumed after heavy rains. Corn was in good condition in the blacklands. In the coastal bend the crop has reached the roasting ear stage. Late feeds were being planted in Central and East Texas as soils dried. Sorghums were heading in the coastal bend and urjper coastal counties and doing well in central and Edwards Plateau counties. Cotton planting was active in the high and low rolling plains sectors where moisture permitted. Most of the crop was yet to be planted or replanted in north-central and East Texas.

OPt — A new type of aptitude test that meas-1 ures an individual's "structural dexterity" has been developed after 14 years of experimentation by Dr. M.

In older tests— ! putting round pegs in round holes ! —this skill was never definitely j isolated, he said. The older tests I were also based on time of per- j formance. j The new method requires a per-1 son to study a series of sketches I on cards. Then he begins c, acting | a structure of metal bars and pins } based on one of the sketches. j The individual's ability to use : materials on hand most effective-1 ly is thus tested, and, through a I grading system worked out by ! several Technical High instruc- ! tors, the individual is classified. **U going toll! get good and to fake home tin LGIN but don't suffer a m/flufei Only ELGIN has the Guaranteed DURAPOWER MAINSPRING The Start not Hevtr Breaks ,.,^_J Mew Iftd.
