College, produced enough milk during the past test-year to provide 166 fam ilies of four with four quarts of milk daily for the entire year, ac cording to a report of the Hol- stein-Friesian Association of America. The average production per cow was 410.3 pounds butter- fat from 12,173 pounds milk. The average cow in the herd pro duced nearly 2V2 times as much butterfat as the country’s average dairy cow, using U. S. Department of Agriculture statistics as the basis o focmparison. Thirty-one members of this Holstein herd were milked three times daily, the re mainder twice. The highest producer in the herd was the five-year-old , Paulantha Lady Maid that produced’ 18,974 pounds milk with 598.4 pounds but terfat in 335 days on thrfee milk ings daily.

Club Dance To Be Held December 23 at Plantation The annual Houston A. & MA club dance will be held Monday night, December 23, at the Plan tation, president James R. Lane announced today. Louis Panico and his orchestra, coming from Chi cago’s Edgewater Beach Hotel, will play for the event which will last from 9 till 1, Lane said. William T. Grisham is general chairman of the dance, and his committee includes John T. Cox, David Ball Jr., Gus Standish, E. R. Keeton, H. 0. Johnson Jr., Ross Staine, Jack M. Nagle, William A. McKenzie, Roy D. Cassity, F. A. Nice, Richard H. Suman, Raymond R. Read, Douglas S. Barker, Wel don McReynolds, Harry W. Gill, G. B. Beeler, H. W. Heitmann Jr., William L. Shirley, J. R. Spiller, and Grover Mushaway. “This will be the biggest dance ever sponsored by the Houston A. & M. club,” Grisham said, “and in particular are we anxious to have the members of the junior and senior Houston ev-student or ganizations, the members of the Houston A. & M. Mother’s club and Aggie parents present at the dance.” Exclusive use of the Plantation has been obtained by the organiza tion for the dance and admission is by personal invitation. Houston ex-students who wish to attend the function should get in touch with Lane at College Station, Grisham said. Part of the program will be set aside for a contest to select a girl to represent the club as duchess at the annual A. & M. Cotton Pag eant and Ball next spring. Any date of a Houston Aggie who is a member of the organization will be eligible for the honor, Lane said. “The Aggie escorting the girl se lected will also serve as her escort in the Cotton Pageant,” Lane said. He further stated that the judges for the contest would be announc ed in a few days. Officers of the Houston A. & M. club include, besides Lane, C. J. Bland, senior vice-president; Grish am, junior vice-president; Paul 0. Egner, secretary; and A. C. So- Relle Jr., treasurer.

However, hte Commissioner warned against placing trees in such a way as to block exits, and admonished against their use near stoves and steam radiators. They should be decorated only with asbestos, glass and metal. The tree alone will make a dangerous fire, without the added fuel of paper, cotton snow and pyrolylin decorations. The wide use of electric extension cords, Christmas tree lights and lights in windows bring new haz ards to every home.

Under the supervision of L. V. Halbrook, teacher of vocational ag riculture at Bryan high school, a dozen raisers killed and dressed 1500 turkeys at the Texas A. & M. College meats laboratory. They have been graded according to market standards by George P. McCarthy, poultry husbandman of the Texas A. & M. College Exten sion Service, and shipped to New York by express where they will be sold and the proveeds divided cooperatively among the growers. Brazos county produces approx imately 20,000 turkeys annually and in the past has sold them on foot to dealers but in order to find out which is the more profitable, they are shipping one carload to New York as an experiment. George Cargill is president of the Brazos County Turkey Raisers Association and is the man behind the test. Among others cooperating are Sam B. Pate, of Harvey, and Howard Todd, secretary of the as sociation, both raisers of large flocks. By R. R. Lyle Two farmers, Mr. Jones and Mr. Smith, have thirty cows between them; they sell them at different prices, but each received the same sum. If Mr. Jones has sold his cows at Mr. Smith’s price, he would have received $320, and if Mr. Smith had sold his cows at Mr. Jones’ price, he would have re ceived $245. How many cows did each man sell ? What price per cow did each receive for his cows? Answer: Mr. Jones sold 16 and got $17.50 per head. Mr. Smith sold 14 and received $20.00 per head. Fish Jones says to Fish Smith: “Wen you are fifteen times the age I was when you were half as old as I am, you will be one-half again as old as I would be were I as much older than you as you are older than I am.” To this Fish Smith replied: “When you will be as much older than you are as you are younger than I was year before last, our combined ages will be fifth.” How old are Fish Jones and Fish Smith. Answer: Fish Jones 18 and Fish Smith 24. Fish Jones says to Fish Smith: “When you are fifteen times the age I was when you were half as old as I am, you will be one-half again as old as I would be were I as much older than you as you are older than I am.” “When you will be as much older than you are as you are younger than I was year before last, our combined ages will be fifty.” How old are Fish Jones and Fish Smith ? Answer: Fish Jones—18 and Fish Smith. 24.
