By STELLA WILDER FRIDAY. DEC. 17 Born today, you possess a surprisingly playful nature for one who appears outwardly to be so serious, even scholarly. Your sense of humor always manages to keep your solemn side in check so that you do not give in to moodiness or states of depression that periodically threaten to overwhelm you. You are concerned with life’s larger issues — economics, religion, politics — but it is the small, everyday matters that grant you your joys. You possess a fondness for children that keeps you ever on the verge of faith.
Although in public you may appear somewhat timid, when involved in your particular field you know no shyness whatsoever. Indeed, you positively glow under the warmth of applause. You always take criticism to heart, using it to develop your gifts if you can.
Also born on this date are: Arthur Fiedler, orchestra conductor; Gene Rayburn, TV entertainer; John Greenleaf Whittier, poet.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18 SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) - You should receive the “go-ahead” on a new project before day’s end. Take care; don’t jump the gun!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Take advantage of an opportunity to sit back and let others do the work for a change. Don’t insist.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — A question of personality arises and threatens to spoil plans for the weekend. Overlook etiquette breach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — What you take on faith today is in a high-risk area of activity. Don’t be surprised to fail during p.m.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — A short trip may be just what is needed to lend proper perspective to a new project. Family fun at eve.
LIBRA (Sept. 2H)ct. 22) — A side issure proves more interesting and more profitiable than mainstream activities. Investigate today.
SCORPIO (Oft. 23-Nov. 21) — Ixmg-range plans must be discussed with all involved in the project; otherwise they fail in the long run.

Texas Farm Bureau elects new president
A record 1,417 voting delegates at the 49th annual Texas Farm Bureau Convention elected a state president and signaled a change in the direction of the farm program.
S M True. Jr., a Plainview cotton, soybean and feed grain fanner, was elected president at the recent convention held in Dallas. He defeated Carrol G. Chaloupka who had served as president for eight years.
In recommendations for national policy, convention delegates approved a supply management farm program, featuring a mandatory acreage set aside.
According to that program, the delegates wanted 30 percent of wheat and feed grain acreage for the next year set aside, including a 15 percent paid diversion.
Delegates rejected a proposal for federal crop insurance to be handled through the local Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service. They wanted the federal crop insurance to refrain from what they termed “misleading advertisement" and asked that information be listed
on premiums and indemnities.
Delegates also supported a change in warehouse bankruptcy laws anil the establishment of rights and first priorities of producers holding title to stored grain. They also voted to support a proposed federal pecan marketing order that would raise money for research and promotion.
Some of the state policies adopted included:
• A proposal calling for "increased brucellosis research to develop improved vaccines for adult cattle and improved techniques of detection and a control or cure for brucellosis.”
• A state fire ant program which includes aerial application and use of a durable chemical which remains effective long enough for ants to find and consume it.
The program also supports use of ground application for spot treatment as a followup to aerial application. This policy also points out to the Environmental Protection Agency that fire ants are destroying small animals and ground nesting birds
