Runoff 'Heavy' For Rio Grande ALBUQUERQUE (UP!) - Rivet watcher s along the Rio Grande eyed the "heaviest in 19 years 1 ' today as the U. S. Weather Bureau announced below normal temparatures and above normal moisture may extend through the month of May. Released today was another Spring runoff forecast for the various river basins of New Mexico and the outlook in the Rio Grande and San Juan basins In particular are for some of the heaviest runoffs since 1948. Should a hard rain and quickly warming temperatures strike the snowshed veteran river observers say flooding in the Rio Grande Valley could occur. A seige of interchanging warm and cool spells, however, probably would allow melting to proceed evenly and with little flood threats. In addition, Abiquiu Dam on the Chama River is expected to relieve the pressure where the Chama flows into the Rio Grande. A veteran weather observer described the snowpack on Wolf Creek Pass in southern Colora do today as "the heaviest snow pack I have seen in 19 years." Also revealed was that most of the upper Rio Grande and Chama snowpacks still remain, with only minor melting thus far. The peak runoff down the Rio Grande is expected within the next two or three weeks with flows of 11,000 to 13.000 cubic- fcet-per-second forecast. If the 13,000 cubic feet per second figure is reached it will compare with the situation in 1948 when flooding occurred in the Middle Rio Grande Vailey. Snowpacks on the R i o Grande watershed raflge from 60 to 200 per cent over normal. Predicted runoffs from May through September are forecast at 1.24 per cent of normal to 127 per cent of normal in the .

Grain Production Control To Be Eased Farmers who have been making money from grain storage earnings will have to find another source of income, said William Pcarce, vice president of Cargill Inc., of Minneapolis.

A. L. Neumann, head of the department of animal science at New Mexico State University, said today he is even more convinced that stockfnen must breed cattle• that will finish out in the feedlot at 1,000 to 1,150 pounds with only a small amount of fat. Dr. Neumann said that while he has held this conviction for some Time, he believes it more strongly because of what he saw and heard on a recent market study tour sponsored by Swift and Co. He was one of 26 leaders in the livestock industry who toured feedlots, slaughter and processing plants wholesale and retail markets at Chicago, Boston, and New York. "There is only a small demand for the lighter — 860 to 900 pound — live cattle," Dr. Neumann said. "The Southern States still demand small carcasses and there is a demand for them in California, but the major market in the United !Stales is for the more muscular, growthier cattle without excess fat. Of course the smaller cattle lean be fed out to these heavier j weights, but when they are, the I buyers balk at the excess fat." I The solution, to the problem, iDr. Neumann believes is to breed cattle that will meet the demand aftd h§ Mexico cattlemen can cash in on this demand ahead of others If they begin now to selett tor growthiness afld meat-producing qualities. in addition to cattle, hog facilities, the fish fflftifcet, leeflrt a broUef production tr Two great irrigation jsorgfiums GOLDEN ACRES Hie hybrids that boost your "per acre" income Here »rc two wise choices for planting on your irriffatfcd land—Golden Acrca TE 77 and TE 88.
