Sheep and Goats
On Texas Farms
Are on Increase
Sheep and goats continued to in
crease in number on Texas farms
and ranches during 1941, says W.
R. Nisbet, animal husbandman of
the A. & M. Extension Service.
Several million lambs are produced
yearly in the state.
The expansion in sheep is being
made at the expense of the cattle
population in new areas, Nisbet ob
serves, adding that “some of the
heavily stocked ranges could carry
fewer sheep and more cattle.”
Sheep are pushing most rapidly
west and north from the Edward
plateau. Answers to parasite prob
lems would permit more rapid ex
pansion to the south and east
where ranges seem superior for
While many lambs are kept for
replacement in the current expan
sion, most of the wether lambs
leave the state as feeders. Nisbet
suggests an expansion in lamb
County agricultural agents have
promoted a substantial number of
lamb feeding demonstrations,
largely through 4-H Club program.
Mohair production is next in im
portance to wool and lambs. The 16
to 17 million pounds of mohair
sheared at six month intervals rep
resents 85 per cent of the nation’s
“It is generally accepted that
selling mohair on an ungraded
basis penalizes the growers be
cause weight often is obtained at
the expense of quality,” Nisbet
Accordingly, a grading program
was inaugurated in the fall of 1939
through cooperation of the Exten
sion Service with the Agricultural
Marketing Service and the Texas
Angora Goat Raisers Association.
In 1941 the Extension Service em
ployed Walter Garth, Jr., of San
ford, Maine, during August and
September to extend the program.
Numerous grading demonstrations
were given on ranches and some
purebred flocks were culled on a
quality basis. As a consequence,
general support for marketing mo
hair on its merits was more nearly
About 600,000 pounds of hair
was graded during the spring and
fall seasons of 1941, compared
with a volume of 336,000 and 500,-
000 respectively, in 1940. The 1941
graded hair sold for a low of 38
cents for No. 4 grown to 85 cent*
for No. 1 kid.

the fourth largest graduate school

Trig and Physics
Desirable for Air
Corps Bombardier
Mathematics through trigonom
etry and physics are desirable for
the applicant who wishes to be
come a bombardier in the U. S.
Air Force.
The bombardier, as the name im
plies, is in charge of bombing op
erations. Schools are located at
Midland, Texas; Albuquerque, N.
M.; Victorville, Calif.; Higby-
Chandler, Ariz; Roswell, N. M.;
Hobbs, N. M.; Carlsbad, N. M.,
and Kingham, Ariz.
No evidence of formal schooling
is required and applicants for
bombardier instruction spend nine
weeks in fundamental study, 12
weeks at a bombardier school and
five weeks in gunnery practice.
Following this 26 weeks of school
ing he becomes a second lieutenant
in the U. S. Army Air Force and
draws $245 a month unless he lives
on an army post where no rental
allowance is made. During the
training period he makes $75 a
month, $1.00 a day subsistence,
clothing, quarters, and a $10,000
government life insurance policy.

Watkins may break the existing
record in the high jump. Pete will
also e^ter the broad jump—a new
event for him—in addition to the
javelin and high hurdles.
• Rice’s hopes have been dimmed
somewhat by Bill Christopher’s
pulling a muscle. It is still doubt
ful whether he will be able to
enter the meet this afternoon or
not. Christopher was a cinch for
first in the broad jump, a place in
the high jump, and was also a re
lay man.
However, Rice still has Harold
Hall in the dashes and Bill Black
burn and Jim Deal in the weights.
All are favored in their events.
Aggie dashmen Ken Stallings
and Derace Moser may give Hall
trouble, though, and Felix Bucek
will furnish plenty of competition
in the discus. When A. & M. de
feated Rice in a dual meet sev
eral weeks ago, Felix tossed the
platter 141 feet for first place
over Deal.
Texas is depending on Hafernick
and Umstaddt for the majority
of their points. Hafernick is the
defending champion in the mile.
