1 I THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1973 PAGE 4 Papers Cut Back Improved Pastures Could Sometimes Have Drawbacks COLLEGE STATION - Im- proved pastures, one of the greatest boons to the beef cat- tle industry in Texas, some- times have their drawbacks from the disease standpoint. Examples are grass tetany and emphysema, says Dr. John C. Reagor of the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory. Both ailments are almost non- existant on unimproved, native pastures. Reagor described the disease conditions to an estimated 600 persons Tuesday, a record at- tendance for the Combined Beef Cattle and Pasture and Forage Short Course at Texas A&.M University. Tin? toxicologist said tetany, also known as wheat pasture poisoning, grass staggers and green oat tetany, results from low blood magnesium in cattle. Texas weather conditions this year apparently have been ideal for the disease. "Large numbers of cases were reported to and diagnosed by our laboratory," he pointed out. ...

'It's a new thing and it remains to be seen what the eighteen year old will do with his new privileges. . . es- pecially the right to drink," said Starr County Sheriff Reymundo Alvarez. Eighteen year olds will be vulnerable to suits concern- ing accidents and rents and will be held responsible for contracts. As an adult, debts will be the 18 year old's responsibility since he now has equal status with his par- ents. Along with the obligations, there also some privileges, such as buying liquor and walking into bars and night clubs uninhibited. District Attorney F. Randal Nye said that with the ex- perience he has had with young people they so...

Restrictions On Imports From Mexico Outlined The U.S. Department of Ag- riculture (USDA) has issued guidelines for consumers who bring meat back to the United States from Mexico. Leo G. K. Iverson, deputy administrator of USDA's Ani- mal and Plant "Health Inspection Service (APHIS), said officials are concerned that consumers who are now going into Mexico to buy meat will purchase more than the 50 pounds for personal use that can be brought back in- to the U.S. Any excess may have to be seized and destroyed at the border, causing a loss to consumers. "APHIS inspectors routinely examine meat from Mexico being brought through our bor- der stations in amounts smaller than 50 pounds," Mr. Iverson said. "But the Federal Meat Inspection Act prohibits entry of foreign meat in amounts in excess of 50 pounds per person, unless certified for export by the foreign country and inspect- ed by a U.S. meat inspector. In addition to the general re- strictions on foreign meat, ani- mal health regula...

£ V 4- - I * - i I * • J Crop Contract Law Is Sought THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1973 PAGE 17 AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - A new villain, the unscrupulous grain and cotton buyer, has come on the Texas farm scene, wit- nesses have told the House Ag- riculture and Livestock Com- mittee. They recommended passage of a law requiring buyers to post bond guaranteeing prom- ised payments for crops. Com m i 11 e e members in- dicated Thursday they flavor such a law to protect farmers from defaulting contract buyers of grain and cotton. Witnesses said the problem has arisen only In the past two years. As they described the situ- ation, farmers are asked early in the planting season to sign contracts selling all or part of their crops at specified prices and sometimes by specified dates. Pressure sometimes is applied, taking advantage of farmers' uncertainty over prices at harvest time. If prices £3.11, buyers have been known to declare bankruptcy and refuse to pay for crops they have co...

Fitzpatrick reported that it was "almost impossible" to conceive of their having a Christian family atmosphere under the living conditions of the migrant camps. "The migrants spend as many as seven months living in a one or two-room facility to- gether with as many as ten other family members. It is almost impossible to think of good, Christian family life ex- isting adequately in these cir- cumstances," said Bishop Fitzpatrick. While visiting migrant farm- workers from the Valley in their homes, in the fields and canning factories where they work, Bishop Fitzpatrick asked them about their problems and what their plans for the future were.

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1973 PAGE 21 I' A i I r Dr. Narro's Report by Dr. Ramiro Narro M.CT Starr County Medical Officer uurlng the past year Texas has made great strides in ven- ereal disease control by sign- ificantly decreasing the inci- d e n c e of early Infectious syphilis. But there is still a long way to go in the fight a- gainst both syphilis and gonor- rhea. Emphasis has been put on V.D. control, and receipt last year of some $2 million in federal funds greatly accelerated the pro- gram. With those funds, State Health Department officials planned a five year intensive statewide campaign in an attempt to re- verse the upward trend of these infections, and reduce the pre- valence of infectious gonorrhea to a controllable level. A gonorrhea culture screen- ing program went into effect in July 1972, the goal being to test 500,000 females for possible venereal disease. Women in particular were the target group, since in many instances, women who contract the ...
