A Walk In The Fields Of Life . . . | by Martha Tuck It's been * - ,h a beautiful w^ek with the bluebonnets peeking through after the rain. It made me enjoy spending some time with R. T. Lewis of the Texas Forest Service, phone number 237-3312, and his making me acquainted with the worry that he has for the people of Bastrop County because of the danger of fires. He felt that if people knew some of the dangers because of the rains (which most of us had been so happy to see) which has caused much grass and undergrowth and will cause an instant inferno, and if you've ever seen the beautiful pine trees explode, you know what he's talking about. Well, Mr. Lewis told me they have found three fires this past week, at Utley, Upton and Sayers- ville. and about 40 since the first of January. They feel some of these are caused by catalytic converters on modern autos being parked in the area. And carel...

THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, 1976 PAGE 7 AG11I - NEWS Producer Interests Taking Second Place Farmers are finding it in- creasingly difficult to be heard in Washington. "Producer interests in agricultural policy are taking a secondary position to interests of foreign policy, consumerism and labor. Secretary Butz is no longer calling the shots on farm policy. Unless farmers are able to take charge, farm pro- grams may actually be a noose around the producer's neck " That's the contention of Dr Ronald Knutson, economist in marketing and policy for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, who spoke at an Extension Service Press Day banquet at Texas A&M Uni- versity yesterday evening (Jan 13) "Producers must con- solidate if they are to regain a position of control over agricultural policy," emphasized the Texas A&M University System economist Knutson listed two critical policy questions on which pro- ducers must evaluate their position: (1) In whose interest is agricultural policy goi...

Wilkinson The writer of my old book must have been a lover of womenkind to spend so much time in gathering, and thought and space in pre- senting so many items of interest that would appeal to the feminine mind in the pre-Civil War days of our growing young nation. Back then Womens Lib certainly was a reality, and was rigidedly practiced in every community through- out the country. It simply meant the snatching of a frightened, frantic female from the hostile hands of raiding redskins, and return- ing her safely to the settle- ment, with her long beautiful hair still attached to her throbbing head. How did she keep her hajjp so long and beautiful out there in the wilderness -- no beauty shops, no cosmetic- counters, no corner drug stores? Somehow she found time t(i make and use her own hair oil, following these recipes: "Oil for the Hair A very excellent ready-m...
