Pullets Lay Better Than Older Hens Pullets will lay about five dozen more eggs than old hens, according to most poultrymen and it is therefore a better practice not to keep laying hens for a second year of production. The egg quality from pullets is undoubtedly better than from older birds. CARE For Those You Love Thomas Nursing Home 1200 Fifteenth St. Wellington, Texas Chemicals Available Pre-Emergence Weed Control Seen Here "Several herbicides for pre- emergence use in cotton are on the market this year—some for the first tfane. Whether one or all will work on your farm under your particular conditions is a question with no stock answer," says county agent Cecil Regier. He explained four of the herbicides listed by Texas A&M University specialists this season are recommended on a trial-use basis only.. These four are Trifluralin (Treflan), Prometryne, Norea 1 , (Herban), and DCPA (Dac- thal.) Uritir more is known 1 about the performance of -these chemicals under Texas and more localized conditions, it is best to use them only on a very small acreage. And be sure to follow the label insti-uctions exactly, Regier cautions; Bill Gunter, area extension agronomist, says the term "trial basis only" means farmers who are interested in trying these new chemicals should restrict their use to a few rows. New herbicides are coming on the market each year and they will continue to play an important role in decreasing the cost of cotton production in this area. "However," says Regier. "un- til research has proven conclusively that one or all of the chemicals has a definite (place on local farms under local conditions, they should toe used on a limited trial basis only." Duane Scott working with Dr. Alan Wiese will be putting down extensive tests on these herbicides this season to determine adaptability to Collingsworth county conditions. CIPC and diuron are recommended for use on Texas farms having been used by research workers and farmers for sevei'- al years. When applied correctly and according to label, these two have given good results on many farms across the state, reports Fred Elliott, extension cotton specialist of College Station. According to Elliott, recommendations of chemicals for use on cotton fields are developed after doing research, reviewing data and observing on-fai-m test iplantings across the state. "Before a chemical can be recommended in Texas, we must know what 'it can—and can't—'do under most all circumstances," says Elliott. "Recommendations are based on results of reseai-ch work for more than one year. This serves to make sure that different Miss Whitson to Rutgers Miss Sue WhiHteoir, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Whitson of the Lutie community, was chosen recently to participate in an Earth Science Institute at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J. Miss Whitson is third grade teacher in Colonial Heiighte Elementary School at Brownfield. The award was made by the National Science Foundation. She will be one of 35 participants in the Institute, which 'begins June 29 and continues through Aug. 7. and changing weather conditions, soil types, and other factors are given ample time •to assert thedr effects. "If this in-depth research and 1 evaluation weren't the basis for recommendations, it's possible >a chemical 1 might make the recommendations because it 'looked good' one year. Also, it might well work the other way. A chemical migiht not make the recommendations because of an adverse year, even tihough it might have (proven out in succeeding years," says the specialist. Copies of a mimeographed publication "Chemical Weed Control in Cotton in/ the Panhandle and South Plains," by Dr. Wiese, can be picked up at the county agent's office. Much of the research in this publication was conducted in Collingsworth county.

Certain Events Affect Payments of Social Security Hal Geldkm, district manager of social security in Amarillo, today reminded people receiving social security benefits that certain events may affect the payment of ithose benefits. "When these events occur, they should ibe reported to the Social Security Administration; The death of a beneficiary should be reported promptly, Geldon stated. He also mentioned that the marriage of a beneficiary, unless the Ibenefic- iary is receiving benefits as a retired worker, will usually stop payments. Divorce may affect the right to .get benefits. People who are receiving benefits on behalf of a child or an incapable older (person, may have those rights altered if there has been a change in custody of the beneficiary. The most common event! that affects the right to receive payment is earnings from any type of work. If the fbenefici- ary is under the age of 72 and expects to earn over $1200 during the calendar year, some of his benefits for the year will be held back. Geldon stated that any of these events should be reported to the 'Social Security Ad- THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, May 7, 1964 Quail FFA en , v i .
