Shell is of stamped aluminum and has 30 sides. The 'sigtMip on the 1964 feed grain program is now under | way, MiHard Brown of the county A SOS office said this week. .. , The final date for filing an agreement to participate in the program is March 27. Farmers who are interested in the program should call at the ASCS county office for full details, since -there are some changes from ' the 1963 program. One major change is that a producer who signs up to divert at least 40% of his feed grain base will receive payment at the farm's high rate of pay for the entire acreage diverted and tjhe balance of the 'base may be planted to feed and receive" the price support payment. If less than 40% of the base is diverted, the first 20% of the base will be figured at the farm's minimum payment rate and the additional acreage figured at; the high rate or the farm. Also, the price support payment rate for the farm will 1 apply to the acreage of feed grains planted. To participate in the program at least 20% of the feed rain base must be diverted. The maximum acreage that can 'be diverged under the program is 50% of the feed grain base or 25 acres whichever is the larger. Growers who participate in the 1964 feed grain program will have definite advantages Pork Production Reflects Use by Consumers COLLEGE STATION.— The swine industry is producing a ' much 'more desirable meat product now than it did a few years ago, and indications are that the quality will continue '"to be improved in the future. Hog producers are putting forth an intensive effort; to produce the kind of product the housewife wants, Donald .1. Osbourn, Extension Service assistant animal husbandman, emphasizes. : Production has been geared to producing the raost amount of red meat possible with the least amount of fat and still retain the juiciness, flavor and tenderness of the meat, Os- bou-rn adds. These accomplishments have been made because of the definite goals set up by everyone associated with the swine in• dustry, Hog (producers, meat <packers, breed associations and research people throughout the "United States are all agreed : that more meat and less fat . is desirable. They have taken these steps to reach their goal: . 1. Breeders and universities have set up test stations in every state where individual breeders can test their hogs to see if they are producing meaty, fast-growing hogs. If tests disclose they are not getting t,he job done, they get busy and make needed changes in their .breeding-"program. 2. Each breed association has set up a certification -progi'am which recognizes the hogs that are truly meat-type. Promotion programs call attention to these meat hogs. 3. Packers are paying a good premium for meaty hogs that are not over fat.

First, he explained, the par- tpcipating grower earns a diversion, payment for reducing his 1964 acreage of corn, barley, or grain sorghum, thereby assuring himself of a substantial income from the diverted acres regardless of drought, flood, Insects, hail or crop disease. This is also true of the price support payment which is made on the acreage planted in 1964 to one or more of the three feed grains—no matter what disposition is made of the crop, the price support payment is assured. Third, price support loans and purchase agreements will be available on a participating farmer's entire 1964 production of the three feed grains. If the .participating farmer requests it^/ah advance payment of part of the diversion payment will be made at the time of signing up or as soon as possible after that time.

RJTZ ATTRACTION Jack Lemmon gleefully intervenes when Carol Lynley and Dean Jones try an experiment in pre- martial "platonic togetherness," in Columbia Pictures' "Under the Yum Yum Tree." Lemmon, with his own plans for Carol, stars in the Frederick Brisson production; other co-stars include Edie Adams, Imogene Coca and Paul Lynde. Film, in color, is based on the Broadway stage success. The mamba of <tihe African forests is a snake that lurks in trees and bites its victims in the face or shoulder.

Record Predicted for 1964 Vote Although the official compilation of poll tax payments and exemption certificates is not due from Texas state comptroller Robert Oalvert until tjhe first of April, many county tax assessor-collectors have stated they expect the number of qualified voters to exceed the number in 1960—2,594,000, This prediction does not take into account registrations of those voters who cast ballots in federal races only. Registration for federal certificates seems to be going slow, but poll-tax registrations also ran slow 'Until the last week in January. A statement by Pat O'Keefe, executive director of the State Democratic Committee, indicated that interest in voter registration seems lightest in rural areas. Republican -party officials have not hazarded a guess on the score, but are hoping to get 300,000 Texans to cast ballots in their May 2 primary. Total of 1962 GOP party participants was 135,000. •>••*; . , , its value to you America is on the road . . . going places . . . seeing things. Texas had 9.6 million out'of'State visitors in 1963 who spent $471 million plus $25 million in direct state taxes. As an example in WTU territory, more than 100,000 last year visited Big Bend National Park (pictured above). A mere eight tourist cars a day that stop in a community is the equivalent of an added $100,000 annual payroll. Travel and tourism in Texas will grow even faster because of vastly increasing tourist promotion on both the state and local level. This makes tourism of value to every community in the WTU service area, and one of our major economic factors. Many communities are benefiting from tourism as one of the important PATTERNS FOR PROGRESS. These communities are: 1. Developing tourist attractions (even a rodeo or county fair is a "tourist attraction") < 2. Building facilities to care for tourists and other travelers no matter where they are headed (Alpine's Ponderosa Restaurant, pictured left, is one of many such facilities), 3. Creating facilities for the growing number of business and family non-vacationing travelers who fill the highways day after day. That is why we suggest that you evaluate the importance of tourism to you, and consider seriously how your community can benefit from it. . - - West Texas Utilities Company an investor owned company I If you're after a car with some life to it, there's only one thing to do.
