THE READING CORNER One of the favorite spots for children of Mrs. H. L. Tucker's first grade is the reading corner, where this group has chosen favorite books that also increase their reading skill. Standing at the back are Toni Taylor, left, and Lucy Sullivan, while Mrs. Tucker helps Mickey Vassey choose a book. Pilar Galan stands at right. Seated around the table, beginning at left and going clockwise, TOWER NEWS LETTER By. SEN. JOHN TOWER are Joe Rodriguez, Susan Johnston, Ruben Sanchez, Ray Castor, Helen Sanchez, Ramon Romo and Lena Hoffman. A number of children were ob- sent the day the pictures were made, and these were Stan Holcomb, Robert Smith, Kim Aaron, Leatha Baker, Cindy Beck, Judy Chandler, Sandra Ferguson, Ruby Romo, Becky Seitz, Sylvia Vela, and Jewel Sosa. I want to talk to- you today about a matter that is of extreme importance to farmers and ranchers, not only in Texas, but throughout; the United States. Not only that, it is of great importance to a whole group of related businesses and industries that depend upon our agricultural community lor their economic well-being. The price of cattle has dropped drastically in recent weeks and months. This has meant a loss of millions of dollars in income for our ranchers and stock farmers. And ibefore those of you who think that the ranchers' loss is your gain, I want you to consider a few facts that will be brought out in this report. In 1962, the total weight of live cattle, beef and veal imported into this country jumped drastically. In 1957, these imports amounted to only 3.9 per cent of our domestic production. In 1962, this had gone up to approximately 11 per cent of our total domestic production. In 1963, it went up still more, to 12 per cent. A few of us in the Congress became alarmed at the prospects facing our domestic livestock industry. As you may "know, our livestock raisers are not under a federal subsidy. They operate in a free market and must adjust their herds over the years to take into consideration such factors as feed prices, droughts, land values, and labor supply, as well as many other things that go into successful ranching and farming. We could see that if the import trend continued, our domestic livestock industry would be in dire straits. So we introduced! a bill in the Senate, S. 557, that; would establish annual quotas for imported cattle, beef, and veal, and were prepared to extend this to mutton. The quotas would be determined by averaging the past five years, including the high year of 1962, and the more-or-less normal years pro- ceding 1962, Imports over and above this quota would have paid extra import duties. The bill was co-sponsored in the Senate by Senators Simpson of Wyoming, Mechem of New Mexico, Young of North Dakota, Jordan of Idaho, Bennett of Utah, McGee of Wyoming, Goldwater of Arizona, and myself. It was fought by the Administration's spokesmen in the Department of Agriculture, which I thought was 1 rather strange in that one would think that the United States Department of Agriculture ought to be concerned with agricultural interests of the United States. At any rate, they were successful in* opposing our bill. They said that imports were not the real reason prices were falling, despite the very clear evidence that this WAS the prime reason. American consumption of red meat has climbed dramatically, from 46.4 pounds per person in 1932, to 95.1 pounds iper capita in 1963. In the face of increased sale of beef and veal, during last year, the price of beef fell from an average of $30.13 per 100 (pounds in November of 1962, to less than $24.00 in late 1963. (During the first eight months of 1963, on a carcass weight basis, according to reputable authorities, beef and veal imports were 22 per cent above those for the same eight months of 1962). Finally, the Administration was forced to admit the obvious truth—that the deluge of meat imports WAS havimg a drastic effect on our domestic livestock industry. I do not doubt for a 1 moment that there are many in the Department of Agriculture, and throughout this Administration, who could care less. They would like to see livestock producers, who have long resisted subsidies, driven to the wall and placed in a position where they will have to accept federal control in return for federal handouts. In opposing our bill, the Administration said it would seek voluntary curtailment of im- iports from the exporting countries. They have now announced the results of their endeavors, with claims of huge sue- Darlene Roiney on Honor List Darlene Rainey of the Lutie community and a freshman at Wayland Baptist, College, Plainview, is listed on tihe dean's honor roll for the fail semester with a scholastic average of 2.60.

No New Cases of Hepatitis No new cases of hepatitis have developed, among students in the Samnorwood school district, according to Supt. Orville Cunning-ham this week. Three students were stricken with the disease recently 'but they are improving and will be in school again within a short time, he added. 'Doctors who were called in were unable to find the source of the disease, and it is believed the children contracted it outside the community, the superintendent added. A large part of the student body received gamma globulin as 1 a precautionary measure. Mrs. Earl Smith Home from Ga.

School will be dismissed Friday for teachers to attend the District XI meeting of Texas State Teacher* Association. cess. Basically, and stripped of its verbiage, the Administration's actions amount to this:: Imports, now at a level that have driven prices down, will ibe frozen near the present high level and guaranteed. There will be a minute reduction for the time being — election year— and then imports will again begin climbing. I regard the solution, if it is that, as wholly unsatisfactory, and if livestock raisers believe their problem has been rolved iby this law, they will .balieve anything. It amounts to mothing more than a massive snow job, designed to make the entire domestic livestock industry, from livestock i m aisers to the corner meat market, believe that this Administration is trying to do something about a problem it has refused to face realistically. In closing, I thought you might like to know: The United Nations has now decided to proceed with plans to establish a 'livestock improvement center in Cuba, at a cost of more than $1 million, 40 per cent of which will be paid by American taxpayers through their U.N. contributions.
