They are Roy B. Davis, general manager of the Plains Coopera tive Oil Mill, Lubbock, and David G. Gault, general manager of the Mid-Tex Milk Producers Associ ation, Austin. The award was initiated in 1964 by the state organization to rec- ogniize “those few outstanding individuals who have made a sub stantial contribution to Texas agriculture and family living, who recognize the importance of informal educational programs for adults and youth, and who have assisted in projecting the visionary aims of Dr. Seaman A. Knapp, the originator of Exten sion demonstration teaching, and Walter C. Porter, the first farm demonstrator.” Both Davis and Gaulte were presented a bronze plaque by Extension Director Dr. John E. Hutchison. According to Hutchison, Davis is an outstanding leader of agri culture, not only on the High Plains of Texas, but in the whole cotton south. He manages the largest cottonseed oil mill in the world and has put together a success story that has extended beyond the cotton fields of Texas to national prominence, beyond agricultui'e to business and civic leadership and responsibilities. The agricultural leader was born in Waldo near McGregor but grew up in Lamesa. He was graduated from here in 1927 and served as a county agricultural agent in Gaines and Terry coun- Celia relief costs said third highest !-Anifli having sunra 3 Bonli WASHINGTON, D. C. — Celia may become the third most costly hurricane, in terms of disaster relief expenditures, in the history of this country, the American Red Cross reported today. Last week the Red Cross sent out a nationwide emergency ap peal for a minimum of $6 million to provide relief and recovery as sistance for victims of the storm that smashed into the Central Texas coast Monday afternoon. The $6 million projected figure is topped only by Hurricane Ca mille (1969), in which Red Cross disaster relief costs exceeded $21 million, and Betsy (1965), with expenditures of $17.5 mil lion, officials said. They pointed out that Red Cross budgets $10 million a year for disaster relief which, under ordi nary circumstances, is sufficient to meet the emergency and recov ery needs resulting from an av erage year’s catastrophes. But ARC disaster expenditures during the past five years have totaled $88,000,000, far above the annual average. It is very possible, officials said, that the costs of Celia may well exceed the $6 million esti mate. The figure was projected after a survey made of the de vastated areas only a day after the storm blew through. As Red Cross caseworkers began to plan with thousands of individual fam ilies for the rebuilding or repair ing and refurnishing of their homes, the cost may go higher than the Tuesday estimate. ties. He took over the reins of the Plains Cooperative Oil Mill, Inc., in 1943. Davis gave strong leadership to the organization of the Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., now the largest, most effective cotton producers association in the United States. His staunch lead ership in organizing the Farmers’ Cooperative Compress, Plains Cotton Cooperative Association and Growers’ Seed Association has been a tremendous boost to the industry. Davis has been instrumental in developing and guiding the Na tional Cotton Council and served as its president in 1968. He has worked diligently to expand the export market for cotton in Europe and Japan. He was named “Man of the Year in Texas Agriculture” for 1965 by the Progressive Farmer. Gault was born on a dairy farm in Travis County and learned the dairy business at an early age. He currently owns and leases 1,200 cultivated acres and 290 acres of grassland. He is milking 236 cows at present. According to Hutchison, Gault was a pioneer of the American Dairy Association of Texas and president of the American Dairy Association of Texas in 1955-56. He is also past president and director of the Texas Milk Pro ducers Federation. He received the “Man of the Year in Agriculture” award from the Texas County Agricultural Agents Association in 1963. Gault was also the recipient of the Land Bank Medallion in 1967 for out standing contributions to Ameri can agriculture. Other than his present position, Gault is serving as director of the National Milk Producers Fed eration in Washington, D. C.; member of the legislative com mittee of the Texas Federation of Cooperatives; and secretary- treasurer of the Austin Dairy Herd Improvement Association. Looking over awards—David G.
