In Collingsworth Tests Show Value of Top Dressing Wheat Fertilizer tests on wheat carried out in the Northwest Texas Research Demonstration program here can be put Into practice -by Coffingworth farmers in the next few weeks, Dwayne Scotjt, farm research demonstrator and Cecil Regier, county agent, said tihis week. "With good moisture over the county, top dressing wheat with nitrogen fertilizer should pay off, if fertilizer was nob applied at planting time," Scott continued. Here is the payoff: "In past demonstrations in this county, as high as 10 bushels increase in yield per acre has been slhown from top dressing wheat with conditions that were not as good as they are now. "For best results, 20 to 30 pounds of nitrogen per acre should be used. "And for best results, fertilizer should IDC applied by March 1. "Any source of nitrogen that can be .properly applied should give good results," the research head continued, adding that right now, conditions are ideal. Future Farmers Get Training for Leadership By John Holcomb Texas A&M University "Future Farmers learn leadership. That Is the difference." The response came from Dr. R. C. Potts, assistant director of Agricultural Instruction at Texas A&M University, when asked about vocational agriculture and the FFA as preparation for college. Potts works daily with the agricultural students attending Texas A&M. "In my opinion, the ability to lead others, to express themselves, to think on their feet and to move with confidence in a new environment— these are the attributes of our students with a Future Farmer background. They are valu- aWe assets'. They contribute in a major way to the success of the student, no matter what course of study he selects," Potts said. And how well do former Future Farmers do in coltege? "No significant difference," says Associate Dean Louis M. Thompson of Iowa 1 State College. Speaking to educators at Atlantic City recently, Thompson stated that agriculture is a highly scientific endeavor. Science means little to a person until he sees its application, and vocational agriculture applies knowledge in botany, zoology, bacteriology, chemistry, and physics, Thompson pointed to Cornell and to Iowa State where researchers divided coWege fresh- men based upon whether or not they received training in vocational agriculture in high school, then charted performance. In general, the high school agriculture students had fewer courses in basic sciences at the high school level. There was no significant difference in college performance. looking into the future, the educators agree that improvement is in sight. Vocational agriculture AND science — not one or the other — is the answer. As secondary schools increase graduation requirements and at the same time offer more courses—scheduling more period!s in the school day —more college bound students interested in agriculture are enrolling in the basic sciences and vocational agriculture at the same time. The college bound student of agriculture is urged to confer with his principal, his vocational agriculture teacher and his counselor concerning entrance requirements to the college or university of his choice. In most cases, he can satisfy entrance requirements and his agricultural interests together.

Two-year-old Jack Daniels (inset) sits on the steps of his new Home, the Methodist Home in Waco, Texas on January 21, 1937. Jack and his six brothers and sisters entered the Home for children following the death of their parents. In the larger picture, Methodist Home Superintendent Hubert Johnson welcomes Jack Daniels back to the Home following his recent appointment as chaplain. In his first sermon Rev. Daniels told the children he can understand their feelings well because he has been on both aides of the Methodist Home pulpit. Rev. Daniels felt his call to the ministry while growing up in the Christian atmosphere of the Home. His good record in public school and at the Home helped him earn an Albaugh Scholarship for his bachelor's degree. Rev. Daniels worked his way through theological school as a student pastor. After graduation he served Methodist churches in the Central Texas Conference for seven years preceding his appointment to the Methodist Home. He will guide a program of bible study for the children, supervise daily devotional services in each Home unit and hold regular services in the chapel. As the children s pastor Rev. Daniels will offer experienced counsel in helping solve problems of faith and life. The Methodist Home serves both Texas and New Mexico and since its founding 74 years ago has cared for over 8,700 children orphaned by death and human failings.
