In farm Chemicals Philip E, Crystal, Curry County Agent has just returned from a special lecture, and extra session with Dr...Stanley Coppock, chemical safety officer at New Mexico State University. The main point, of the sessions was the proper use of farm chemicals, Crystal said. Rules discussed for safety when using farm chemicals were: Read the label carefully; follow directions; observe all limitations and waiting periods; avoid leaving residues with insect control; use cultural methods of control; develop control by the sterility factor; develop resistant plant varieties; cultivate infestations of beneficial insects.

S. Reclamation Commissioner Floyd Dominy said here. This year's May 1 reading predicts 11 million acre feet— slightly above the 10.8 million acre feet forecast in April and the best since the 13.2 million forecast in May, 1952. Dominy said that, on the basis of this reading, he is "now absolutely confident we will have Hoover Dam up to its rated head and will be able to raise Glen Canyon (reservoir) 35 feet during the course of the summer. Last year the Bureau of Reclamation faced a touch-and-go situation, filling Glen Canyon sufficiently to start production of power and, at the same time, keeping the Hoover Dam turbines turning. At the same time, Dominy pointed out that such eastern New Mexico projects as thos at Tucumcari and Carlsbad are "in trouble" because of a d spell. Neither depends heavily on snowpack for its water. "The whole Pecos drainage is in bad shape," he said, addin. that the problem applies to portions of both New Mexico anil Texas. In addition to the bright picture on the Colorado River this year, Dominy said snow readings also are good on the Mis- souri and the North Platte this | spring. Last year the April 1 projection on the Colorado was 5.1 million acre feet but a good April boosted it to 6.1 by May 1. Although this year's outlook is good, past experiences shows that runoff is even better than the April and May readings for the April - to - July runoff season. The only exception was in 1958. For instance, the reading for May, 1952, was 13.2 million acre i feet, but the actual runoff from! April to July was 14.1 million.
