In 1985, the district saw an increase on cross fences again Many livestock farmers and ranchers invested in new fencing techniques for management of their grassland and livestock. Power fencing and high tensile fencing has attributed to a renewed interest in more fencing in the area The fencing material is less expensive and easier to install than the conventional barbed wire fence. The power or electric fence is beeom ing a more functional fence for the hill country. Cross fences are used to divide a large pasture or fence off a cropland area from grazing. Cross fences are an excellent management tool to con trol the distribution of grazing on an area. Fencing can improve grassland management techniques and decrease soil erosion on the grassland. In many cases, large pastures are spot grazed by livestock. Spot grazing is the result of cattle grazing on preferred areas and not grazing other areas In most cases, this type of grazing destroys the range conditions, in creases brush encroachment on that area, and often increase soil erosion due to the lack of grassland cover Fencing will cost from St a foot to as much as $2 a foot depending on the type of fence The benefit of cross fencing and grazing management can be valued as saving as little as one ton of soil per acre per year to as much as five tons per acre per year During 1985. ranchers who had several pastures took advantage of the above average rainfall and rested their pasture to regain grassland that was lost in last years '84 drought. Ranchers were able to deferr grazing on 62.500 acres of native grass for im provement and managed grazing on 220,375 acres of rangeland properly. Conservation tillage is another conservation practice which farmers and ranchers are considering. Con sensation tillage is a reduced tillage method The practice is an excellent one to cut operation expense and do a better job of soil conservation In other parts of the state conservation tillage has been accredited to reducing soil erosion with in the tolerable limit The tillage practice is very successful. especially during a dry period The system is catching on slowly here, because it takes a special method of minimum tillage technique in this area than it does in other    areas    However, perseverance on tile part of farmers and SCS are investing in some type of conservation tillage system on 24.815 acres (mostly iii Guadalupe County) in the district Another practice which was more popular this year was planting improved grasses or pasture planting Usually it is more desirable to plant improved grass during a year when we get an abundant rainfall such as in 1985 This past year again proved to be the exception as many farmers and ranchers were very successful in getting a good grass cover. Farmers and ranchers through assistance from the SCS established a grass cover on 4,000 acres of land which also had soil conserving benefits asGramm nominates McWilliams for appointment P«0«7 US. Sen Phil Gramm has nominated Mark McWilliams, son of Mr. and Mrs Carey F. McWilliams of New Braunfels, for an appointment to the U S Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs. Colorado Gramm praised McWilliams as a “young man of promise, patriotism and intellect who has chosen the difficult path of dedication to the service of our country The senator is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a former member of the House Veteran’s Affairs Committee He also serves on the U.S. Military Academy’s Board of Visitors, which oversees operation of the academy at West Point. Winner of Sen Gramm’s nomina tions to the military service academies must pass the rigid requirements for academic and physical excellence set by the senator’s selection boardCrossword well as conserving and forage producing Most of this success is attributed to better seedbed prepara Hon. These are just a few conservation practices which were accomplished in the district and have far reaching benefits in not only conserving our natural resources, but also on the quality of the resource base, stan dard of living and the enviroment. The farmer and rancher is one who has a great influence on our standard of living and receives very little recognition for his keen management techniques of our natural resources to bring the bountyful gift of food to our table which we all enjoy So join us during this time of year to give special thanks to many farmers and ranchers in our District doing an excellent job of resource management. The district wishes all a happy and prosperous conservative new year lf you would like to better understand the natural resources of your farm or ranch you may contact the SCS ACROSS 1 Flivvers 5 Make untidy 9 Lassoed 14 Slide over 15 Isaac s son 16 Blue shade 17 Shout 18 Schooner 19 Resin 20 Coast birds 22 Jewish teachers’ group 24 Colonize 26 Stallion 27 Fuel 29 Parasitic egg 30 Tease 33 Mitigating 37 Figures 38 Ranch units 39 Fawn's parent 40 Villain 41 Thoroughfare 42 Holding 44 Unlimited 45 Hebrew letter 46 Hindu deity 47 Nestors 49 Epistle 53 Ex-Argentine VIP 57 Billow 58 Ready 59 Yale studes 61 Carriages 62 Depository 63 Nursemaid 64 Summer Olympics event 65 Expected 66 Attracted 67 Spanish painter DOWN 1 Pear parts 2 Lodi love 3 Cheerful 4 Elongated 5 Trysted 6 Addict 7 Abraham s mate 8 Headgear 9 Prejudiced person 10 Oxygen form 11 Chrysalis 12 E of QED 13 Take it out The admissions boards of the academies will anounce final selections from among the senator’s nominations in .January Each year nationwide, thousands of high school seniors apply for the few openings in the freshman classes of the of Military, Naval and Air Force academies Upon graduating with bachelor of science degree after a rigorous four-year program, they are commissioned as officers in the armed services. “The young men and women who succeed in measuring up to the high standards of America’s service academies become the leaders of our nation’s defense in war and peace.” Gramm noted In May.

I am not saying that I kept every one of those resolutions every day, hut I kept most of them, and they have now become habits that have made a remarkable improvement in my personality and character. I hope you will run it every New Year’s Eve. I’m sure it will benefit many others as it has nu* NEVEU TC JO OLD MEAK NEV EK: The “resolutions” column has become an established annual tradition: MEAK KKAMKKS: These New Year’s resolutions are baaed on the original credo of Alcoholics Anonymous. I have taken the liberty of using that theme with some variations of my own: dust for today I will live through this day only, and not set far-reaehing goals to try to overcome all my problems at once. I know I can do something for 12 hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifc'time. dust for today I will be happy. Abraham Lincoln said, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.’ Ile was right. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. I will chase them out of my mind and replace them with happy thoughts. Just for today I will adjust myself to what is. I will face reality. I will change those things that I can change and accept those things I cannot change. Just for today I will improve my mind. I will not be* a mental loafer. I will force myself to read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. Just for today I will do something positive to improve my health. If I’m a smoker, I’M make an honest effort to cut down. If I’m overweight, ITI eat nothing I know is fattening. And I will force myself to exercise—even if it’s only walking around the block or using the stairs instead of the elevator. Just for today I will be totally honest, lf someone asks me something I don’t know, I will not bluff; ITI simply say, "I don’t know.” Just for today ITI do something I’ve been putting off for a long time. ITI finally write* that letter, make that phone call, clean that closet or straighten out those dresser drawers. Just for today, before I speak I will ask myself, “Is it true*? Is it kind?” And if the* answer to either of those* questions is ne*g-ative*, I won’t say it. •Just for today I will make* a conscious e*ffort lei lie* agreeable. I will hiok as genic! as I can, dress becomingly, talk softly, aet courteously and not interrupt when someone* else is talking. Just for today I’M not improve* anybody e*xc*e*pt myself. Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, hut I w ill have* it, thereby saving myself from two pests: hurry and indecision. Just for toduy I will have a cjuiet half-hour to relax alone. Muring this time I will re*fle*et on my behavior and will get a better perspective* on my life*. Just for today I will he* unafraid. I will gather the* c ourage to do what is right and take* the responsibility for my own actions. I will expect nothing from the* world, hut I will realize that as I give* to the* world, the* world will give* to me. Have a happy, healthy New Year. And pray for peace!
