These farrowing houses' need not be costly, either, lie adds. The purpose of any farrowing .facility is to piro- vide comfort for the sow and pigs and to prevent injury to the (pigs. Good farrowing houses can contain farrowing crates under a shed or in a central house, according to Osbourn. One of the marks of a good hog producer' is the number of big litters of thrifty pigs that he saves. Thousands of dollars can be lost of sows are allow ed to farrow in unprotected beds, says Osbourn.

I.. -. r, > ' Library Additions Are Historic , Texaa State Library recently obtained an historic treaty and an historic suit of ctothes. Both are certain to be viewed, by thousands in years ahead. Sen. Ralph Yarborough presented the library a certified copy of the El Chamlzal treaity signed iby Pres. Johnson on Dec. 20—defining the boundary along the Texas-Chihuahua and El Paso-Juarez (borders. The treaty, placed on display in a glass case, ended a century-old boundary dispute. Gov. Oonnally, at the library's request, turned over to the State archives the black, light-weight suit he was wearing when he was seriously wounded in Dallas. He was the first Texas governor to be the victim of an assassination attempt. The suit bears butfe f holes in the back, front and right sleeve. Also placed in the archives is the blood-staincrl shirt Connally wore on the tragic November day, and his black and gold silk tie. Classified ads get results.
