ec^i DIDACTICS -By Deskins Wells Some twenty-five of our public .spirited citizens are in Austin- this week to attend the hearing on the dfivision of the waters on the Salt Fork of Red River. Here is wishing them luck. They are not tjhere to oppose the Greenbelt project for they have no objection to the Greenbelt having the amount of-"water for which they asked originally. They are opposed to Childress and other cities hogging all the waters of the riv- er> . . .. ' .-,- • The Childress contention that the Salt Fork officials want •the water solely for irrigation and that it would deny them drinking water as not valid. The diversion dam and the dlam on Buck Creek would provide water for municipal and industrial use and recreation as well as possible irrigation. It would not deny any city drinking water for the Salt Fork officials have said all along that they could and would sell water to Childresa and Quanah cheaper than they will ibe able to buy it under the Greenbelt plan. If there is any dog in the I 'manger attitjude about this con- itroversy, I think it belongs to Childress. They simply do not iwant a lake on Buck Creek that might benefit Memphis and Wellington more thanCihil- dress. Such an opinion is not entirely correct because it would also benefit Chlldress plenty. Don't they claim they are the gateway to the Panhandle ? It says here that the dust bowls now plague Russia which is already plagued by shortages of grain and meat. The dust bowls are occurring in the semi-arid regions Khrushchev ordered iplowed up in an effort to raise more wheat. The socialistic, bureaucratic controls of the Soviet did not cause the winds, .but they did cause the improvident, inefficient practices that madte passible the blowing dust when the winds came. Now they are going to try to cure the situation by more laws and more controls. Basketball fever Is mounting in Wellington as well as over the area for Quail, Samnorwood and Dodson alike have very fine teams this year. Both the Wellington boys and girls are tied for first place in their district. The boys game with McLean here this Friday will be an SRO affair for the Tigers are the only team that has defeated the Rockets in district play. The game at the Wellington gym may decide who wiJl represent the district this year. The Rockettes 59 to 29 victory over the Fillies, or whatever they are called, gave them a tie with Clarendon for first place. From the standpoint of a Wellington fan the girl« game with Clarendon this past week end was as smooth and sweet a contest as you would care to see. Smarting from their earlier defeat at the hands of Clarendon the Rockettes started the game with a rush and piled up 14 points while the stingy Wellington guards were holding Clarendon to 2 points. With a comfortable lead the Rockettes took it easier in the second and third quarter with their starters taking a breather at times, but they still led 40 to 21 at the beginning of the final period. It was then they turned on the heat again, making 19 points while Clarendon gained only 8 points and most of t^his was on fouls. Mrs. Marcum Out of County Tax Race Mel'ba Lariffley Marcum, who announced' as a candidate for county tax assessor-collector last week, was found to be ineligible due to the legal residence requirement, and is out of the race. Two candidates remain, Mrs. Rita Owens and Hubert Mauldin. Mrs. Marcum's statement of .withdrawal follows: I doubt that I could ever do anything well"enough to set a record, but due to circumstances beyond my control 1; <may have set one; that is the shortest political career in the county. .On Monday, Feb. 3 I announced for CountjV Tax Assessor-Collector and by the following Wednesday I was out of the race. The law requires any person to be a resident in a county or district six months <prior to running for an office. Since we were a Navy family we had privileges which allowed us to call 1 Texas our legal home even though we were out of the state a lot of the .time. Since my husband enlisted in the Navy in Hutchison county we were both considered residents of that county; therefore I would •be eligible to run for office in that county but not} here. I would like to thank all my friends who might have considered me in any way,- and .perhaps some day I can again try to serve my county. Melba Ijangley Marcum. Savage Moves Motor Clinic 3. H. Savage has moved his Motor Clinic from his old location on West Avenoie to its new home located at, the corner of East Avenue and 10th Street. Mr. Savage says that the new location will not only give them much more working space ibut that It will provide better parking and drivein facilities for his customers. The Clinic does all kinds, of general repair work on cars, trucks and! tractors, and Mr. Savage says that most of his work is on tractors. They also service automatic transmissions', brakes, mufflers and offer an air conditioning service for automobiles. Associated with him in the Clinic is Clint Cleveland, who is also an experienced mechanic. t Jackson — from page one five daughters: Walter Jackson of Nevada, Mo.; Charley Jackson and Mrs. Grace Logas of Grapevine; Sam Jackson of Independence, Mo.; Mrs. Georgiana Ribble of Portales, N. M.; Mrs. Elizabeth Liles of Ft. Worth; Mrs. Ruth Bounds of Kansas City; and Mrs. Scott. There are 19 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren. Going from here to the service at Grapevine were Mr. and Mrs: Scottj, and tlheir daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Bradley. points at the half, but they lost the game by abandoning their fast break and started a stalling game .hoping to lure Tech into fouls that would help to maintain their lead; but the Raiders did not foul unduly and went ahead to win. The defensive work of Carol Main, Susan Sullivan, Jan Glenn and other guards was superb. They simply did not allow the ball to stay in the Clarendon end of the court very long at a time. The offensive play of Betty Courtney, Jane Orr, Joyce Holton, Frances Warrick and others was equally impressive. All of the Rockette team is speedy but Jane Orr is one of the fastest and most agile players seen on the local court in some time. Betty Courtney, the high scorer in most games, has height and moves with grace and is a great play maker. Frances Warrick, while not as swift? as Jane Orr or Joyce Holton is adroit under the basket using either hand on the layups to dump the bail! 1 through the hoop. It is quite a team—a great team you might say, and they play as a team. While I am on the subject of basketball, I might as well say something about that Donnybrook held at. Luibbock this past Tuesday night. It was a ; sweet victory for the Raiders , and a bitter loss for the Ag- gies and placed the two tjeams in a tie at the halfway mark in- the Southwest Conference race; The Aggies led toy 19 CERTIFICATE PRESENTATION The first act of newly-elected Fire Chief Buster Hughs, right, was the presentation of certificates of training to 21 men of Wellington Fire Department who completed the recent 8-hour course on Explosive Ordnance Reconnaissance, taught by a team from Ft.

Possible Money Crop Sesame Seen as Good Prospects for County In their search for new money crops for this area, some farmers forsee the production of sesame seed—a crop already proved adaptable to Collingsworth county. Pat Bouchelle of lLoco, who last week reported on his trip to the sugar beet area of Colorado, also discussed with The Wellington Leader some of the advantages of sesame, a crop he grew successfully a p few years ago. "Sesame should gross: $80 to $125 per acre and you don't have an insect problem," Bouchelle said. "It is an easy crop to grow—it's an irrigated crop, but you do have hand labor in harvesting. 1 ' He estimated the cost of harvesting at about $12 per acre. Like sugar beets, wlhich Bouchelle is investigating this year, sesame is grown under contract, thereby assuring a market. About the disadvantage Bouchelle found in growing sesame is in the harvesting process: "You have to cut and shock itj ibefore it's ripe, let it ripen in the shock and .then go back and thresh it," he explained. i "Sesame oil is one of the oldest oils known to Man," Bouchelle continued. "They grew it in Biblical days. Today, it's used in medicines, Rockets — from page one of the two will not : be revealed until they are' announced at coronation time. The standing of the six district teams, at the beginning of this week is: Boys Division Team Wellington McLean iLefors Canadian Memphis Clarendon Won Lost 7 1 6 4 3 1 0 Girls Division Wellington 5 Clarendon 4 McLean 3 Canadian 2 Lefors 0 1 2 4 6 7 1 1 3 4 G and as oil in which to fry such things as Fritoes, potato chips and other packaged foods like that. It stays fresh longer than any other oil."
