Atomic Weapons Fire Possible Firemen Told How to or k With Explosiues ^ r . $ . . -J- ' * if 1 Wellington firemen ,•,received two nights of Instruction in explosives and how to combat their hazards on Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 27 and 28, by two members of the 61st Ordnance Detachment (Exiposives Disposal) Fort iSill, Okla. They were Sp./5 Jerry L, Loux and Sp./5 Frank B. Hornbaker, who gave instruction on the -proper way of reporting unexploded hazard^ — such as bombs, mines, shells, hand grenades, dynamite, blasting caps and any other potentially dangerous materials. On tihe first evening, approximately 50 Cub Scouts visited the meeting, said Buster Hughs, assistant fire chief. The course covered identification of explosive ordnance, explosives, homemade bombs, nuclear weapons fire fighting, and reporting of all explosive items. The instruction was one of a continuing series of classes taught year-round by tjie 61st throughout all the Texas Panhandle, Texas north of Dallas and Oklahoma west of Tulsa, In their instruction the second night, the men pointed out that all SAC planes flying over this area 1 are loaded witin ic weapons. The Wellington firemen were told what to do in case one of these planes should crash near here. There is no danger of an atomic explosion, they were told and while there would be some danger from radiation in the immediate area, it would not 'be danger from fall-out. Loux and Hornibeck explained how to handle such a. fire and how to identify the presence of atomic weapons by the color of the blaze, smoke, etc. "Any time anyone thinks he has found a bomb or other explosive and wants someone to come look at it, he should contact the fire department an<] we will call in these men of the explosives disposal unit at Fort Sill. They will come take Texas Tops Russia in Road Building AUSTIN. — Khrushchev's "We'll bury you" sboast draws yawns at the Texas Highway Department Fifty per cent more new highway miles were opened to traffic -in Texas in the pas' fiscal year than was built in all of the Soviet Union during 1963.

In 1963 a total of 348 incidents were reported through- ut the Gist's area, most of them having been reported by civilians. Persons knowing of any tern of an explosive nature .hould contact local fii'e or >po- ice departments rather than risk an explosion by disturbing -he item by bringing it in. "We'd like people to leave an tern where it is. We'll come to ixamine it,"'said Sp/5 Hom- jakei*. Sp,/6 iLoux recalled that, un,il recently, a Tulsa dentist lad used a Civil War Cannon )ail as a door-stop, thinking t was solid iron. A fireman who had been ti'aincd by the 61st urged him to have it checked. Twelve pounds of black powder were drained ;rom the "door-stop." Disarmed and returned to its owner, the cannon ball is now safe.

THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, February 13, 1964 FFA President Tells Meaning of Organization By Benny Mays, President Texas Association, FFA To me, the FFA has meant a richer, fuller, and more meaningful life. Through the FFA I have developed by God-given abilities and found many new talents. Serving an organization and being of help to others (has been one of my greatest satisfactions. The FFA has taught me the art of cooperation, the meaning of responsibility, and the value of thrift^ In general, the FFA has helped me to become a more mature individual. I ibelieve that the FFA can do more toward developing an in-dividual than any organization with which I have come in contact. Its framework offers a constant challenge to the interested mamber with activities ranging from the local to the national level. A place in the Future Farmers of America organization awaits any ambitious and progressive individual. Almost five years ago I was inspired to take advantage of the opportunities in this great organization. It was then that I met James Prewitt, then the State President. James .possessed many of the virtues thai someday I wanted to obtain. Ironically, I now find myselJ holding the same office. As ] try to meet its responsibilities my admiration grows for al the past State Presidents. I only hope that I can Influence one boy in this state as James Prewitt influenced me. I would then know that I had caused someone to become deeply indebted to the FFA. Yes, the FFA has meant everything to me. The contacts, travel, speaking experiences, and inspiration that I have received have been of immeasurable value. I am sure thai} today, tomorrow, and "always, I will consider it a privilege and an honor to say "I am a Future Farmer of America." May I toe equal to the challenge that it offers. Small Wire May Cause Trouble With Appliances Wiring of too small size may be the reason for trouble with farm equipment and home appliances. Too-small wire causes loss of voltage, which can cause a loss in light output, a loss in heating efficiency, an increase in the energy required by electric motors and an increase in the heating of motor windings.
