Ammon Underwood, of Houston, whose career included a pre-World War I stint as a “miracle worker” on a British cotton plantation in East Africa, has given Texas A&M Uni versity, his alma mater, 167 acres of land valued at $680,000. The 1907 Texas A&M graduate purchased the land more than a half-century ago. It was then part of his farm and ranch but is now val ued as commercial property. Underwood placed no restrictions on his gift, which was made via the Texas A&M Development Founda tion. When the land is sold, an en dowment will be established with the interest produced used to meet the most urgent needs of the Uni versity, said Robert L. Walker, Texas A&M’s development direc tor. The 86-year-old retired farmer, rancher, banker and oil man also is including Texas A&M in his will. Part of his gift will be his home lo cated on a three-acre point at Buchanan Dam, where he now spends most of his time. Underwood, who enrolled in civil engineering at Texas A&M when he was 16 years old, credits the Uni versity with helping him get his real start in life. The former East Col umbia resident spent five years after graduation working at several loca tions throughout Texas and then went to British East Africa where he served as an irrigation engineer for two years. “The work I did there was part of the British effort to become inde pendent in the production of long staple cotton so the mills in Britain would not have to rely on cotton produced in the southern U.S.,” Underwood explained. “There were only 16 white men and 30,000 natives, and none of the workmen spoke English,” he ad ded. “My training in civil engineer ing at Texas A&M enabled me to solve all of the problems on this job, and many times the natives thought I had worked miracles. “The things I learned at Texas A&M and the friends I made there have been connected either directly or indirectly with nearly everything in my life, and I hope the gift I have made will be helpful to others in the future,” Underwood said.

Texas pets may he heat stroke victims “Many of us have pets that serve as our traveling companions, but we often subject them to serious danger when we don’t intend to do so,” said Dr. Dennis McIntosh, member of the Texas Veterinary Medical As sociation’s Public Information Committee. Dr. McIntosh warns that when you go shopping, Fido or Kitty would be safer left at home. If you leave them locked in the car while you shop, even with the win dows open, they may become vic tims of heat stroke. High temperatures inside the car may cause a dangerous rise in your pet’s body temperature. Vomiting coma and even death may result. If heat stroke does occur immediate veterinary treatment is necessary. You may help by giving a cold bath, but your treatment must be fol lowed by your pet’s doctor if it is to be successful. Even with immediate veterinary treatment, the high body temperature, often 109-110 de grees, may result in brain damage or damage to other vital body or gans, especially the kidneys. Dogs with thick hair coats, such as St. Bernards and Huskies, are especially susceptible. Overheating while playing out side in the hot Texas sun often oc- Screwworms increasing threat to all animals The United States Department of Agriculture is expecting a buildup of screwworms this year and are warn ing livestock owners to be on the alert. Dr. Dennis McIntosh of the Texas Veterinary Medical Associa tion Public Information Committee warns pet owners that screwworms can be their problem too. Any open sore or cut attracts the female adult screwworm fly. Scratching dogs and cats cause small broken skin areas which may be come infested. The fly lays eggs on or near the wound and the hatched larvae look like fly maggots. These larvae burrow into the live tissue. The amount of damage done can re sult in death and, if not this serious, a lot of damage and pain to the in fected pet. Any wound or raw area should be treated immediately. Many of these areas may look small, but the bur rowing larvae cause damage you may not see from the outside. All screwworm larvae must be removed although some are hard to find. Veterinary treatment is important — many of these wounds must be opened and cleaned surgically or they will continue to get worse. Special care and observation of your pets will be necessary while' hot weather is here. The Bacardi Driver. Zippier than a screwdriver. Easy as 1,2,3- Pour 1 Vi oz.
