w * i A Pork, Poultry Prices Decline Shoppers looking for In Trains headed for the pork and poultry counters today, after receiving mixed advice about the future of the family food bill. Decreases in the price of pork chops, chicken and eggs were reported in many areas of the country, but some food in- dustry spokesmen said the de- cline was only temporary. At the same time, the price of wheat for future delivery rose to record levels on Tues- day, reflecting increased world- wide demand. Some farmers were holding on to their wheat in the l>eHcf that the price would go even higher. Tiie Cost of Living Council said it would announce new regulations for the food in- dustry today. The regulations- allowing additional price in- creases to reflect boosts in non- agricultural costs-will take effect Sept. 12. Daniel Goodrich, assistant meat manager at a Grand Un- ion supermarket in Albany, N.Y., summed up the situation-. "You'll see a lot of poultry and Pork specials during the next tvi...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1073 PAGE 1 Lt. Governor's Report AUSTIN—A great <jeal of the 03rd Legislature's time appro- priately was spent in deliber- ating education bills tliis year. Education is the largest sin- gle expenditure made by the state. Of each dollar spent by the state, 48 cents goest to ed- ucation. In the budget for the next two years, the emphasis was placed on education below the college level. Specifically, we need greatly to upgrade our facilities for teaching people how to make a living. This strengthening of our vacational-technical train- ing is long overdue. Of course, we must continue to prepare those who wish to continue on to college. But not By Bill Hobby all youngsters want toor should go on to college. For these children we must provide the skills needed to get a job upon graduation so they may become prosperous, pro- ductive members of our so- ciety. Hopefully, offering an alter- native to a strictly academic course of study will red...

The Consumer Alert AUSTIN—Unless a homeowner has some sound knowledge of textiles, or knows just whom to turn to for expert advice, it can be extremely difficult to know how to purchase carpet- ing. If you have decided that car- peting all or part of your home will give it that finishing touch, you are headed toward a major — and an expensive—step in home improvement. But where do you go from there? You may have formed some basic ideas about hue or color, and know whether you'll settle for shag or sheared type of carpeting. You may start watching car- pet ads, and confusion can set in. A similar type of carpeting may be advertised at various rates. You must check to see if the listed price is for the carpeting only, or whether it includes cost of installation— a substantial item. And, does the installation estimate also include the price of padding to put under the carpet? This sort of variation in pric- ing is not necessarily an in- dication of misrepresentation of total cost. Sinc...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 - \ ■I i Hot Dry Weather brings pinkeye... by David B. Sandefer County Extension Agent Hot, dry summer weather can be a big pain in the eye for cat- tle. The reason is "pinkeye." '' Pinkeye is an infectious eye disease of cattle of all ages and breeds," says County Extension Agent, David Sandefer. "How- ever, younger animals under two years of age appear to be more susceptible than older ones." The eye inflammation occurs most often in summer and fall and is generally more preva- lent in white-faced animals. Dry, dusty conditions, bright sunlight, feeding in tall grass and the presence of flies all tend to aggravate the condition. "The disease is caused pri- marily by a bacteria," points out Sandefer. "The eyelids swell and a watery discharge increases and thickens. The white of the eye becomes in- flamed and a white, gray spot appears near the center of the eye. This spot swells and later opens to form and ulcer." Affected anim...

I ■ THURSDAY, AUGUST 23. 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 12 / Grain Sorghum Harvest Is Nearing Completion COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — Grain sorghum har- vesting is about complete in South Texas and only about 15 per cent of the crop remains in fields in the Southwest, Dr. John Hutchison, director of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, says. Harvesting also is active in West Central and Central Texas, he said. Prices and yields are goal. About 25,000 tales of cotton have been harvested in the Rio Grande Valley although oper- ations have been slowed by rains, Hutchison said. Sorre early cotton is opening in the Blacklands, and the crop looks generally good elsewhere. Peas are being harvested in East Texas and are bringing a good price— $4.50 to S5 a bushel, he said. Demand is high. Potatoes, onions, cucumbers and some early cabbage are being harvested in the High Plains, Hutchison said. Plan- ting of fall vegetables is active in the Coastal Bend, the San Antonio-Winter Garden area a...

When the two come together, there Is always a chance of a drowning or beating accident. Ponds are an asset to the environ- ment and have many uses. During the past 30 years, Texas land- owners have built more than 350,000 ponds as part of their soil and water conservation plans. Some 1,200 have been built in Starr County Soil and Water Conservation District. Families and friends are attracted to ponds because they are nice places to picnic, swim, boat or fish. Even the small boy passing by is attracted by the wa- ter and is liable to do almost anything. This is why keeping ponds safe is so important. Here are some pond safety suggestions that shou...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERAT n PAfiE 16 New Concept of Inter aged Classes Dates Back To One Room Schoolhouse NEW YORK -As the open corridor program is adopted by more and more schools, increasing numbers of children are being assigned to interaged classes. Many of their parents are delighted. Others have questions as to how their children can benefit by interaging. Nathan J. Levine, director of the Walden School in New York City, says that interaging is as beneficial to older chil- dren as to the younger ones— scholastically as well as social- ly. Walden, which was founded in 1914 as one of the pioneer private progressive schools, has been interaging its classes for 10 years. One major advantage in- teraging gives the older child, Levine says, is a chance to be younger than his years on oc- casion and in certain areas. "We shouldn't force children to grow up uniformly or tell them Father Of Sixteen Seeks A Degree that a part of their childhood they still need is cl...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1973 PAGE 17 ♦ ■f- 4r * V I- I". i- • With today's trend toward the use of natural materials for house exteriors, cedar shakes and shingles are becoming more in demand for wall and roof finish. Most of our shingles and shakes come from the giant, coni- ferous western red cedar that makes the Pacific northwest its home. The characteristics of the wood are unique. It has a fine and even grain, high impermeability to water, good di- mensional stability and excellent durability and resistance to decay. The basic difference between shakes and shingles is that shakes are split and shingles are sawed from blocks cut from selected cedar logs. The more heavily textured shakes come in three varieties: tapersplit with a thick butt and thin tip, straight-split with uniform thickness, and handsplit-and-resawn produced by split- ting boards and then cutting them down the center on the dia- gonal. Some shakes are still split by hand with a hardwood mallet...
