Wheat Growers Docked Under New Grade Basis The Department of Agriculture's revised basis for 'grading wheat is being felt on the local market, as growers are docked on foreign material in the grain, cracked wheat, damaged and broken kernels;, Wellington elevator operators report. At the same time, Mallard Brown of the county ASCS office announced that 1he Ibasic county loan and purchase rates for No. 1 wheat as $1.29 per bushel. This is based on a Galveston terminal market rate of $1.77 per .bushel. Premiums and discounts for grade, variety, sedimentation Frank Kennedy of Quail Veteran Ag Teacher to New Job at Vega Frank Kennedy, whose entire 19-year teaching career has been in the vocational culture department of agn- Quail school, has resigned to accept a similar job with Vega high school. He and his family .will move there July 1. "It is a larger department and in a brand new building, and much as we hate to leave Quail, we feel we must take ithis," Kennedy told The Wellington 'Leader this week. In leaving Quail, Kennedy ends an outstanding career of school and community service. "I suppose I am proudest of the hoys who are now ag<teach- ers," he recalled, naming several. "... and the three American Farmers from the chapter." These are Jack Aaron, Troy Harrison) and Travis McGuire. J. C. Saunders has made application for the same degree, highest offered in the national Future Farmer set-up. There have been around 40 Lone Star Farmers from the Quail chapter under Kennedy's teaching and his judging teams have won honor on the district, area and state levels. The Quail Young Fanner chapter he organized in 1956 was one of the first in the state, and it ha® furnished high state officers up to vice president. The Quail cha(pter had the Outstanding Young Farmer of Texas once, and men from the chapter won' that honor on the area level five times. The Future Farmer Chapter Kennedy sponsors has rated superior by the national 1 Association of Future Farmers for the last five years. Honors have come to -this hard-working ag t;eacher. He received the honorary 'Lone Star Farmer degree in 1950; a plaque for outstanding news- ipaper publicity in Area I, honors he followed up with winning awards for outstanding publicity in radio and television. In 1963 the Youwg Farmers of Texas honored him for outstanding leadership as an advisor. He also has served 1 on the board) of directors of the state vocational agriculture teachers and in 1963 he was on the state planning committee for the annual ag teachers convention. Kennedy was one of 'those who helped to organize Salt Fork Soil Conservation District — See buck page value, fptrotein content and other qualities also affect the price. A critical item at this point is moisture content. No. 1 wheat can have no more than 13.5 per cent moisture. Under the new grading method, .growers will be docked one-half cent for each one-fourth point of moisture over 13.5, local (buyers pointed out. Some growers, eager to get their grain out, tried to cut Monday and Tuesday and came in with wheat having a moisture content of 17 and 18 per cent)—4 to 5 pointy over the maximum for No. 1 wheat. That in itself would mean a dockage of 8 to 10 cents per bushel. Basis for Grades Here is the basis for determining the grade of wheat, according to Information received toy the ASCS office. All is based on hard red winter wheat: No. 1: minimum test weight per 'bushel, 60 pounds; maximum limits of: heat damaged kernels, .1 per cent; total damaged kernels, 2 per cent; foreign material, .5 per cent; shrunken and broken kernels, 3 per cent; and total defects 3 per cent. No. 2: 58 pounds; .2 per cent heat damaged kernels.; 4 per cent total damaged kernels; 1 per cent foreign materials; 5 per cent shrunken and broken kernels; and 5 per cent; total defeetis. No. 3 wheat: 56 pounds; .5 per cent heat damaged kernels; TO NEW VOC-AG JOB Frank Kennedy, veteran vocational agriculture teacher at Quail, has resigned to become ag instructor in the Vega high school. He was at Quail 19 years. 7 iper cent total damaged kernels; 2 per cent foreign material; 8 per cent shrunken and broken kernels; and 8 per cent total defects. No. 4 wheat: 54 pounds; 1 per cent heat damaged kernels; 10 per cent to1?al damaged kernels; 3 per cent foreign material; 12 per cent shrunken and broken kernels and 12 per cent total defects. No. 5 wheat: 51 pounds; 3 per cent heat damaged kernels; 15 iper cent total damaged kernels; 5 per cent foreign material; 20 per cent shrunken and broken kernels and 20 per cent total defects. Sample .grade is wheat that does not meet the requirements for any of the above or which contains stones, is musty, sour or heating. J. R. Downs Burned in Butane Fire J. R.
