Page 6 THE BATTALION Thursday, August 25, 1955 Russian Croup To View A&M Herds Three members of the Ptus- sian group which has been touring north and middle western U.S. farming areas will visit A&M soon. According to information from D. A. (Andy) Adam, administra tive assistant for foreign pro grams, Texas Agricultural Exten sion Service, the group will be in San Antonio Thursday to buy 40 or more head of Santa Gertrudis cattle. After they buy the cattle they will come to A&M to see the col lege hei'ds and to talk with staff members. While here they will plan the next phase of their tour, to see hereford and shorthorn cat tle. This visit is a result of the re cent flying trip which Vladimir W. Matskevich, first deputy minister of agriculture for the U.S.S.R., made to Texas recently. He was particularly impressed with the Santa Gertrudis breed, which was developed by King Ranch and is the only breed of beef cattle to be developed completely in America.

Marshall of Kings ville, t-xeeutive secretary for the same organization.
