Exchange Student Speaks Before William K: Clark of Gateshead, England, an exchange student in Shamrock high school; was the guest-speaker" at -the ypellington Rotary Club Tuesday. jjV.ipriI 28. Clark, who is classed as a senior in SH'S, will continue his studies there until the end of the current 'term and will return' to England in June. In his talk before the Rotary Club, Clark explained some of the differences in the English educational system and 1 that in the United States. He said that in England the students go to grade school for six years and then they are divided into two groups, one going to the Technical School and the other to the Grammar school. When he returns to England, 'Clark'will have two more years in the Grammar School for Boys at Gateshead, where they will study (Latin, Greek, and foreign languages, science, ihis- tory, etc. The grammar schools prepare the students for college. Young Clark also explained the differences of the parliamentary system of government as compared to the U.S. system of executive, judiciary and congress with its checks and balances. Clark's father is a veterinarian at 'Gateshead and he is living in Shamrock at the home of Dr. and Mrs. E. Byron Range, who is also a veterinarian. Gateshead fi's a residential town in the northern 1 part of England near the industrial city of Newcastle. In his native England', he likes to play rugby, tennis and' badminton, and swims for pleasure since Gateshead is only 10 miles from the sea. When asked how he liked football, he said that he could not see much skill in fit at first but that at the end of the season he was sorry it had stopped 1 . Asked about the Shamrock girls he said': "I have several friends. The teenagers are English at heart since they like the Beatles.

Boll Weevil Threat at a Minimum Some species of wasps live in social groups, while others lead a solitary way of life. Texas cotton farmers can take some comfort in the fact that fewer boll weevils went into hibernation this winter than last year, according to Agriculture Commissioner John C. White. Boll weevil counts were made at random over the state by Texas and federal entomologists with special attention to the most troublesome areas in Central Texas. The .winter survival is expected to be about half of what it was in 1962. During the late fall of each year, Texas and TJSDA research teams take samples ol wood trash adjacent to cotton fields to determine the number of weevils in hibernation. The number surviving iihe winter combined with weather condition during the early part oJ the cotton fruiting period, wil determine potential iboll weevi damage to the 1964 cotton crop "I am certainly pleased with the repoiii this year which indicated our control efforts to hold the destructive weevil a' an absohite minimum are work ing," Commissioner White said "Our neighboring state o: Louisiana shows increases o: the insect are in (prospect f 01 their area, however," he said. Trash samples collected from four Central Texas counties are indicative of results over the rest of the state. Falls, Hill, _ Limestone and McLennan coun- i ty areas averaged only 517 I weevils per acre, compared to 1781 in 1962. Commissioner White attribu- ;ed a major part of this win- «r's decrease in hibernating joll weevils to low spring* populations that survived the win- ;er ; last year. A cotton plant- ting and plow-up program administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture is designed to control the pink boll worm and also achieve benefits in boll weevil destruction. Mandatory plowup of cotton stalks in much of the state destroys hibernating quarters for many insects. This is the second year in which substantial decreases in boll weevils have been noted, White pointed out. Last year also showed a decrease from .the spring of 1962 in numbers of surviving weevils.
