S. Today There is no place in the United States today for an uneducated person! Dr. Charles E. Kellogg, deputy administrator of the Soil Conservation Service said this recently in an address at Texas A&M. Speaking on "The Changing Role of the University," he pointed out that excellence is needed at all levels of education. That is especially true on the public school level, and it might be well to think of this during "Public School Week". Dr. Kellogg, one of the outstanding soil scientists of the world, said the modern university reflects and meets the people's needs, and then he dropped this rather startling fact: Many of this year's graduates will spend more of their adult lives working with machines not yet invented. Because so few places remain for the uneducated, the responsibility of our fine public school systems is increasingly heavy as they seek to educate all for a place in the United States of tomorrow. And Suddenly It's Spring •• '"' -^ ' House to try to clear ,from committee consideration bills affecting local areas in the country. Many members feel pressed about this because the Senate is preparing to begin its debate on -the civil rights .bill, and this debate—accompanied 'by a filibuster of, history- making proportions7-is certain to consume weeks if not months of time on the Senate floor. The problem is this: The current session, the second session of bh« 88th Congress, is the last of the two-year Congress. All bills introduced in this session will die if not enacted by the time the session concludes. Many bills have been passed by the House and are awaiting consideration in the Senate —and obviously many of them cannot ibe considered before the civil rights debate begins. After tjhat dtebate is oiver, the Senate will be hard put to act upon appropriations bills acted on by the House in the meantime. It's going to 'be a very difficult matter for the business of Congress, (particularly that; on the Senate side, to ibe concluded in time for adjournment in early summer. It is possible that the Congress will be recessed for the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and then return to Washington An late summer or early fall. If the Congress follows this course, I predict; that it will be difficult to keep the members' minds on congressional bust- NEW CARS AND TRUCKS Martin and Emalee Lewis- Chevrolet 2-door sedan. E. M.

Why, I was asked this week, are $1 silver certificates being withdrawn from circulation? They • are being withdrawn over a period of year* so that the silver back of them can be used to coin half dollars, quarters and dimes. There is a shortage of silver that would create a prohibitive price rise if we attempted to buy it on the market;. To insure against the possibility of eliminating all $1 notes from circulation, legislation was passed' last year permitting F.ederal Reserve Bank to issue notes below $5. Federal Reserve Banks did not previously have that authority. Some $2 ibillion in salver certificates remain in circulation, however, and they are being re•placed as they wear out. That is the reason some of your money is looking different lately. _v To persons writing for them, I will be glad' to send copies of two publications prepared by the Congress. One is Senate Document No. 46 containing eulogies to the late President John P. Kennedy delivered in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol on Nov. 24, 1963. The other is House Document No. 225, a most attractive reproduction of the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag — and the musical accompaniment for it:—as well as a history of the famous pledge. School teachers and their pupils might be particularly interested! in having copies of this.

Lack of Salt Impairs Growth When salt is withheld from the diets of animals their growth is impaired. Salt is used in the synthesis of ..protein in the animal's body and thus should /be provided free choice to all animals daily. NOTES AND COMMENTS Enactment of the tax bill means that the cuts will be reflected immediately in take- home pay of salary and wage earners. Persons in doubt about what the tax bitl means to them personally will ibegin to see the effects for the first time. I agree with President Johnson that enactment of the tax cut is "the single most important step" taken to -strengthen the economy since World War II" and that the cut "will strengthen our economy and bring a better way of life to our citizens." The new law marks a most important milestone in our economic development "because it constitutes a strong endorsement of • the free enterprise system. Behind it is the principle that capital freed for spending by the PRIVATE sector of t,lie economy, by consumers and by business 1 , can bring .greater economic stimulus than could a higher Icve. of spending by the PUBLIC sector—by the government. Texas Governor John Connal 1 - ly, his arm still in a sling as a result of the grievous wound ie suffered when President Kennedy was slain in Dallas, nonored the Texas delegation in Congress with a visit last week. The Governor was returning to Texas from New York, where he dedicated the Texas Pavilion at the World's Fair site. •Governor Connally said he hopes it will not be necessary to call the Texas Legislature into special session this year on the question of redrawing the boundaries of the state's Congressional districts. In his view, he said, redistricting is necessary and should be a priority matter for the session of the Legislature beginning next January. But he said he hoped the matter could be better handled in a regular session. The Texas delegation expressed its unanimous conviction that the Texas Legislature is perfectly able to handle the matter in whatever situation arises. When will Congress adjourn? Possibly in late June or early July, in time for the Republican National Convention scheduled to begin July 13 in San Francisco.

An exact average gain for the five month feeding period cannot be ascertained at this time due to the fact that some of these calves which were shipped on consignment did not arrive until six weeks after Sept. 30. Others were pulled out early for slaughter for food lockers. These have been on dry lot feeding for only 4 months whereas most of the animals have been on feed for five months. Animals slaughtered have ranged in weight from 640 to 830 pounds. The beeves have dressed out from 58 to 60% of high quality beef.
