Consfervation •District, Bob . Crawford; SCS work runit. conservationist, reminded this week. Several 5>CD co^erators ai*e sprigging in burmuda this spring, Crawford said, including Doug Colemah of-, Dozier, Billy Waters and Tom Whitson of the Aberdeen,.area, Dr. Charley Jones . of Wellington, and Garland Higihtbwer. of Dodson. Crawford has given some of for those farmers establish bermuda the "musts" who would pastures: Midland bermuda grass which has proved its adaptability here over the past few years, along with Indiangrass airid Switch- grass, which have long ago proved their adaptability, are the principal grases being established. High-producing pastures do ea sorghum, then . it . is adequate for grass ^plantings-. .... 4. Must have good planning material. , High-quality seeds may cost more in ,the, 'beginning, ' the long run, they have proved less expensive. There is little loss in livability of Bermuda grass sprigs .when they are . planted immediately after .digging. If the sprigs are to be transported any distance, dampen arid cover and get them in the ground as soon as possible. . . , 6.. Material must be -planted at, the proper time. Failures to obtain stands after July 1 are quite common since the grass has insufficient rtjime to establish an adequate root system and, in many instances, winter kills. . . . , 7. Must fertilize (properly. Vigorous growing grasses such as Midland Switchgrass, Bermuda grass and Indiangrass, not "just happen." They are planned and managed for. There are some ten "musts" to consider in establishing high yielding, improved pastures: 1. Soil must be highly productive. A shallow, eroded soil can store only limited moisture and fertility. If ^the soil produces low yields from cufti- vated crops, it likewise may be expected to (produce relatively low yields in .grass. 2. Must select adapted species of grasses. There are many grasses adapted ,to -the Texas Panhandle. However, many of these do not respond favorably to fertilization and/or irrigation. . .,. 3. Must have proper seedbed. Many failures to get grass established can be':;traced to improper seedbed preparation. If the seedbed is considered adequate for ;tihe planting of grain 36 Enrolled in Drivers Ed Slimmer Course Thirty-six high school students, most of them members of the incoming freshman class are enrolled for drivers education this summer, Harvey Millsap, instructor, said. The course began Saturday, May 23. After 30 hours classroom work, driving instruction and observation -will start, Millsap said. Films will be used extensively in teaching. Friday the students' will hear Ralph Briscoe of Wichita Falls, safety officer for tine Department of Public Safety. Enrolled for the course 'are: Alan Fires, Tim White, Tanya Horton, Johnny Harris, Alfred Allred, Jan Blain, Cherry Lewis, Nancy Sikes, David Groves, Kenny Brown, Sandy Covey, Kent Clark, Nancy Thomas, Stevie Davis, Joy Chandler, Rhonda Kersten, Susan Coffee, Kathy Kiker, Glenda Kiker, Vikki Sounders, Nat Holton, Vicki Wade, Harry Patterson, Jim Henard, Mike Gilmore, Jimmy Black, Sidney McGill, George Kopp, George Poi-ter, Chris Hubbard, • Jan Bowen, Billy McKinney, Polly (Browning, Joyce Curry, Darrell Colson and 'li'anriy Ford. respond to fertilizers in many ways. The water requirement per ton of forage produced will be reduced about one-third on well-fertilized pastures as compared to non-fertilized. The tonnage will be much higher and the feed value will be almost doubled. 8. Must allow plants to establish before grazing. Since grass plants' receive approximately 95% of the elements for growth taken from the air through ^he leaves and the elements are transported to the Tootis as "stored food," it is all important that the grass be allowed to keep its leaves until established in order ,t;o carry on the manufacturing Iprocess. 9. Must .follow a timely and proper irrigation' plan' that will provide about., one-third inch of water eadh day. : ; 10. Must properly use the grass after it is established. Research and experience have shown that Midland Bermuda grass should be .grazed no closer than five inches, and tall grasses such as Indiangrass and Switchgrass no closer tihah 12 inches during the growing season." Since, over 80% i of the total feed value of a grass is aibove the proper-use height, one only risks the disappointment in reduced yield if it is not (properly used. On May 21, Bill Cantrell of liubbock, architect for the new ail, flew in to check on the building. Max Shelburne, Of alala.
