Steele of the Lubbock County War Board of the U.

Jobson, secretary of the board, announced. George Turner of the U. S. soil conservation service; W. G. Newton, manager of South Plains Electric cooperative Inc., and Jobson were named op. the group. They were instructed to prepare the resolutions to.be presented at a meeting of district 2 land use planning committees this afternoon in Lubbock hotel. Meantime, the resolutions are to be sent to B. F. Vance, College Station, chairman of the state war board and also to Senators Tom Connelly and Wilbert Lee O'Daniel and Congressman George Mahon.

Largest per cent of tractor-operated farms in Texas, it is believed, are found in this area. Likewise, 95 per cent or more of the cotton hauled to gins for ginning is hauled in trailers with rubber tires. R. E.

C. Teague, researcher in rubber, told members of the National Farm Chemurgic council that the girdle was made by a new process of . devulcanizing old rubber.

He displayed two rubber insulated assault wires of equal weight and insulation values, but one cf the wires made by a new multiple dip process using a special latex compound was five and one-half times longer than the other. The wire weighed 30 pounds per mile, as compared • with 163 pounds per mile with the old process. CONFERENCE IS SCHEDULED MEXICO CITY, March 25.

Meetings will be as follows: Slaton city hall, Idalou community building, Roosevelt rural high school, Bccton school, Ne\v Deal =chool at Monroe, Shallowater community building, Frenship school at Wolfforth and Cooper rural high school at Woodrow. "We want to urge every farmer in the county who is a cotton producer, to seriously consider insuring his cotton this year," Steele explained. "This is the first year that we have been able to get cotton included in the insurance program. Premium rates are of especial interest to irrigation farmers and with our past history o£ possible crop losses, the insurance will be a good investment."
