June 3—Aproximately I,* I OOO agriculturists from all West I Texas gathered at the Spur Ex- neriment station today for the first field day since 1934, and one that was termed the moat successful. There was no “set” program. County agents, vocational agricul-! ture teachers, farmers, ranchers and agriculture experts spent the morning visiting. Special attention 1 was paid to the livestock feeding project at the station, of which R E Dickson is superintendent. FINANCIAL SI C! ESS John Jones, animal husbandry-man of the extension service, ex-plamed the’ of tile seven lots of IO I steers each, the most economical and best gain was made from a ration of silage and 5 1-2 pounds of cottonseed meal. The steers W'ere selected from the SMS ranch. | The feeding demonstration prov-I ed a financial success, as all above eight cents per pound was said to be profit. T. A. Nored, Fort Worth commission man. said the steers J would bring not less than nine cents w’hen placed on the market. They will be shipped Monday. Nored said there was little difference in the three pens of steers, but the ones receiving seven pounds i of cottonseed meal daily carried more finish. J K. Riggs was in charge of the feeding demonstration to check for j so-called cottonseed meal poisoning. He said it had been found blindness w*as caused by lack of Vitamin A and was found in feed pens ! where there was a deficiency, regardless of the ration used.

He pointed out it was needed whether the ration be cottonseed hulls and meal, or grain sorghums. ‘Farmers and ranchers of West Texas are on the right track now," said C. L. Jennings, of the National j Cottonseed Producers company, yr, pointing ou: the feeding projects being carried on in the area. He said the best work ever done in the section is going on now’. "And why j not." he asked, “since we have the ; cattle, climate, and roughage? We don’t need the expensive equipment found in the corn belt states," he said. He paid tribute to processors of cottonseed, who have saved this country millions of dollars since 1932. TALK MESQ1 ITE KILLING J M Jones, chief of range animal husbandry of Texas A.

The truck was attempting to pass another vehicle on a Mil. The gasoline tank on the bus exploded and showered the wreckage with flaming fluid. Two girl members of the orchestra, Frances Valez and Flora Garcia; W. W. Matthews, the bus driver, and Herman Lemon, the truck driver, were burned to death.

Bill Goes Next To Conference For Adjustment Passage Follows Failure To Limit Political Activities WASHINGTON, June 3 — (AP) — The senate passed the $3,723,000,000 spending - lending program tonight. The vote was 60 to IO. The measure, carrying almost $600,000,000 more than a similar bill passed by the house, now goes to a Joint conference committee for adjustment of differences between the two chambers. DEFEAT ANTI-PWA MOVE Passage came after senate leaders had blocked two attempts to restrict "political activities'* by relief employes. The senate also rejected, 51 to 15, an amendment by Senator Byrd (D-Va) to strike the Public Works administration appropriation from the bill. Previously, it adopted by a voice vote, a Byrd amendment limiting the cost of administering relief to five per cent of the total outlay. A drive by critics of the measure to set aside PWA funds for specific purposes collapsed after the chamber defeated e armarklng amendments offered by Senator Copeland. Administration men had argued the president ought to have a free hand to choose projects. Copeland asked In vain that $325,000,000 b eprovided for flood control and river and harbor projects and that $85,000,000 be set aside for army housing projects. The senate, obviously tired, reached a final vote on the measure shortly before midnight, after a session of 12 hours and 50 minutes.

June 3—P A strong hint that state-wide Saturday oil field shutdowns will be lifted at the end of this month came today from official circles. Indications were given at the same time that the! Sunday shutdowns probably will i continue indefinitely. Railroad Commissioner Ernest O. Thompson said it was too early to determine definitely whether this was the last month of Saturday shut-ins. He pointed out, however, that they were ordered as an emergency measure and said the menace of oversupply was not nearly as great as it was a month ago. ! Promising Grazing Lands— TESTS PROVE DESERT CAN BE RECLOTHED INDIANOPLIS, June 3— V State police and federal agents tonight searched Northwestern Indiana after receiving reports that kidnaped five-year-old James B. <Skeegie» Cash Jr son of a Princeton <Fla > filling station owner, had been seen at Fowler in Benton county, Indiana. Mrs Ben Ladd of Fowler reported to Sheriff Amos gene-ac of Benton county she saw a boy who she said resembled photographs of the missing Cash child, with a "dark-complexioned man who seemed to be a foreigner” this morning. Although investigators said there appeared to be "only a slim chance" the child was the Cash boy, thev broadcast the information by radio over a wide area. PRINCETON Fla June 3— V -Federal agents fruitlessly ran down half a dozen leads in the kidnaping of little Jimmy Cash today as search for the boy extended south' to the tangled morasses of the mangrove keys.

BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Writer TUCSON, Ariz., June 3.—\/P)—A method for making the great American desert areas in the Southwest useful for grazing was described here today at the desert laboratory of the Carnegie institution of Washington. The laboratory has taken a census of every tuft of grass and plant which has appeared in the last 30 years on sample plots of an 840-acre hillside near Tucson. The census shows first that unirrigated desert land can be made to give continuous support to a limited number of grazing herds. Second, that it will take many years to condition the desert, but no expense. The laboratory stands in an area sparsely covered by cactus, low bushes and a few species of grasses that grow in small clumps. Until 30 years ago horses, cattle and burros from Tucson occasionally grazed there. The laboratory then fenced the area and found that the whole 840 acres would probably not support more than one or two cows Fhr 30 years the tract has been lett entirely to nature In the first 22 years, Dr. Forrest Shreve, director of the laboratory. said today, there was a gradual increase in the number of plants By 1929 it was estimated that this desert section had reclothed itself, for grazing purposes, to the maximum. But in eight years since (hen the recovery has been greater than in all the preceding 22 years. Rainfall, Dr Shreve said. had little to do with the recovery. Much of it happened during recent drought years With tho aid of fallen twigs and leaves which were allowed to remain in place year after year, and and increase in shade from bushes See DESERT, Pg. 3, Col. 6 Cotton Takes Rise NEW ORLEANS, July 3— (jf>. -~ Cotton spurted 90 cents to a dollar a bale net higher here today under trade speculative buying induced by reports that the time limit on federal loans had been extended indefinitely.
