Some types of fish respond to supplemental feeding
By RUDY CAVAZOS Range Conservationist
Supplemental feeding is an efficient and enjoyable way to increase the productivity of fishponds. Catfish, both channel and blue, and sunfish respond very well to supplemental feeding.
When purchasing a pelleted feed, look on the bag for the analysis of ingredients. A good catfish feed will contain a minimum of 30 percent of the ration, and fiber should comprise 10-15 percent of the feed. At least 15 percent of the protein should come from animal sources, such as fish meal, and vitamins should have been added.
Two types of commercial feed are available - floating and sinking. Rations that float cost more than sinking leads The higher cost can be overcome to same

Woman doesn't want prayers
DEAK ABBY In response to a letter in your column you said, you don't need a person's permission to pray for hun." Well, that s my problem. My mother is praying for me, and I wish she wouldn't. Ever since he got lierself "born again," site says she is praying that Cod will b* mg me to my knees so I will be born again, too Abby, I have my own religion, which doesn't happen lo be the same as hers, but she keeps trying to talk me into being saved ” When I ask her to please leave me alone and quit praying for me, she says it’s lier duty as a parent to lead me down the “right" path.
iKtfi't get me wrong I also believe in prayer, but I don't want to get into a contest with my mother to see which one of us prays better.

extent by more efficient utilization of floating feeds. An individual can feed what his fish will clean up in 10-20 minutes. In contrast, sinking feeds go out of sight immediately and the individual has to estimate how much to feed. The rule of thumb is: feed 2-3 percent of the total poundage of fish at each feeding during the growing season (March to November).
Catfish fingerlings less than IO inches should be fed I ^ 9-inch pellets. After they attain IO inches, catfish can be fed a 3 ^ 4-inch pellet. Fish can be trained to eat pelleted feed in one or two weeks. Scatter feed in water 3-4 feet deep. Spread the ration over a large area to prevent a few fish from eating most of the food.
Feed at the same place and the same time of day ($-8 a m. or 5-7 p.m.). During
the spring, summer, and early fall fish will benefit front feeding every day.
A winter feeding program (mid-fall to early spring) is beneficial. It permits weight loss, increases disease and parasite resistance, and ensures fish are in better physical condition going into the growing season Aa water temperatures decrease^ fish eat less and food-to-flesh conversion 14 less efficient. Feed on alternate days or every third day. Scatter small amounts of floating feed and, if there is no feeding within a few minutes, do not feed on that particular day. Feed sinking ration at the rate of I percent of total poundage per feeding.
For more information on supplemental feeding contact your local Soil Conservation Service at 358 luanda St. in New Braunfels or call 625-5611.
DEAK ABBY A close relative, age 77, recently went to Poland to visit his relatives. His wife was unable to accompany him because of poor health.
Two weeks after he arrived rn Poland his wife received a telegram from the American Consulate in Poland informing her that her husband had sufferd a fatal heart attack and it would cost her $7,500 to have his body flown back to the United States for burial. The alternative was to have him buried in Poland for $300 His wife chose to have hun buried in Poland because she couldn't afford to have his body .shipped back fiere at those prices.
We were shocked at how much was asked to have his body shipped to the United States from Poland. It seems so grossly overpriced. Am I being ridiculous to question the whole thing? Why in the world is so much charged for such a humane service?
Now the poor widow will be deprived of being buried alongside her lifelong companion in the family plot with other family members
I would like to hear your comment on this upsetting crisis in our family.
UPSET IN N Y.
DEAK UPSET: I am informed that the cost of shipping a body by air is determined by the weight and mileage. The average weight (including the shipping crate! is approximately 350 to 400 pounds, which costs between $120 and $140 per each IOO pounds. Add to that the mortician's fee for embalming. plus the casket, and it should not total aoywfhere near the figure you were quoted. I think you have good reason to be upset.

Duke said it was expected to spread from Montana to northern Arizona, covering tern tory still digging out from the earlier storm blamed for the deaths of 15 people on roads, IO in small planes and two elderly Minnesota men who died Wednesday and Thursday shovelling snow
