Bowling Scores By Opal Baker The weekJs highs were bowled by Evelyn Johnson, she had a 245 game and a 571 series. Roy Hatch had the mens high ser- ies of 622 and Robert Thompson had the mens high game, a 243. Nice scores. This past Wednesday Donna Curd and Mary Gholson each bowled a 201. Donna had a nice seriesof 545. Maize Bazzell had a 502 series. Highs for MEN'S INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE were Louis Scott's 592 and Milt Curd's 584. Milt had a 235 game and Lewis had a 225. Dickey Lore took the honors again Sunday evening. He seems to have a habit of that. Dickey bowled a 571 and a 215. Allen Haliburton also had some nice scores, a 214 and a 549. Allen Kelly had a 525 series. ClarkWhitely converted the 3-7-10 SPlit. Kathrine Weir bowling substitute for Ralph's Monday pick- ed up the 5-7-9 and the 2-4-7. Ralph's won four, by the way. WOMEN'S CITY LEAGUE had Rhonda Rowell bowling high Series of 501. Converting splits were Mary Newsom, Rhonda t~well, June Osborn, Francis R0dgers, Frankle Moore, Nona Whilm. TY A GENT'S NOTES SELECTION OF I~._ROT E IN SUPPLEMENT The cow man of today has fanny more decisions to make than his predecessor when it COmes to selecting the protein he should use in Wintering his cattle. In the past there were three or four sources of high protein to select from. They were cOttonseed meal, soybean meal, linseed meal, and legume hay. in addition to the four, are: 1. Manufactured cub- eS that contain the natural pro- tein from the above sources With varying degrees of protein levels with grains or grain by- Droducts, or the cube with na- tural protein as a part of the ~rotein source and the remain- let from urea nitrogen, and 2. supplement withthe pro- source being primarily urea. Another source get- some use in the area 18 meal. The first consideration a cat- needs to consider is the per pound of digestible I~rotein; second, ,what is the roughage his cattle will as hay or graze. taHay quality is determined by e stage of growth in which it cut, and condition of curing, and stored. Grass quality the winter months drops ~very day from frost until Spring. growth. For ex.ampie, i~rairie and bermuda grass will be practically void ofdigestlble Drotein by late fall, and very low in net energy. The quality of roughage be considered in select- tag the protein, along with the per pound of digetible pro- whether you use natural sources or the combin- ation of natural protein and urea er liquid urea supplement. Research has shownthat pro- tein from dry urea is only 25% as efficient as natural protein ~hen you are grazing dry grass the winter months. Urea USed as a part of the source of I)rotein in a grain ration for fit- ting cattle or dairy cattle is ~quivalent to natural protein. you should not use 1/3 of the protein needs the urea source. The urea in a liquid feed is 50% efficient as natural protein for cows on tlry grass only. To evaluate the protein sour- Ces you consider the cbst per of digestible protein. For example: 41% cottonseed meal a.t $165.00 per ton: $]65.00 di- Vlde 20 cut equal 8.25 per cut 33% equ~ 25~ per lb. 43% soybean at $175.00 per $175 divide 20 equal 8.25 cwt divide 39% equal 22.4~ lb. alfalfa protein at $45 per ttvide 20,eql~ 2.25 per cwt divide 12.6% equal 18~ per lb. If you used a 21% range cube that derives 10 of the protein percentage from urea and 11 from protein, as soybeans, for your cows on dry grass, what do you have? You will have a cube with 11% protein from soybeans, 10% from urea at 25% efficiency, or 2.5% usable protein from urea or a cube of 13.5% protein the cow can use. Now determine your cost per lb. of protein of this cube against the cost per pound from a natural protein cube. For example, if a 21% na[ural protein cube cost $80 per ton, then 80 divide 20 equal $4,00 cwt divide 21 equal 19~, the COSt per lb. of crude pro- rein. To get equal value from a 21~ cube containing. 10% from urea you have a cubewith 13.5% usable protein for the cow. What should you pay per ton to get the same cost of 19~ per lb. of us- able protein7 19~ x 13.5 equal 2.565 x 20 -$51.35, the price per ton. Keep in mind these figures and cost are based only on the protein value of the var- ious sources using the p~rice per ton in the examples. The usable energy has not been eval- uated, which should change the picture Somewhat. Also keep in mind the value of the urea nitrogen, the amount animals are able to convert into protein as you provid~ ldgh- er quality roughage or add suf- ficient grain to increase the energy in the feed the animal consumes daily, You will note, we used the crude protein factor in the ex- ample on manufactured cubes and urea supplemant, whereas in the first example of natural protein, we treed the digestible protein percentages. Stiles Reappointed Mr. Lee Ray Stiles, Jr., of Cushing, was reappointed by the Oklahoma Conservation Commission on November 5, 1973, to a term on the Board of Directors of the Payne County Conservation District, accord- ing to Leonard A. Solomon, Executive Director of the Okla- homa Conservation Commis- sion. The services of the district are available to any landowner who needs assistance with any phase of resource conservation. The offices are located at 201 West Ninth Street, StiUwater. Mr. Stiles will serve with J. G. Williams, James Kuhn, Lawrence M. Ham, and Myron Denny on the Payne County Conservation District Board. District Clerk is Mrs.-Vesta AxtelL The Journal Thursday, November 15, !Estate Tax LawsChange Next July A new Extensio publ' "- the same as the federal. tion outlines changes in OIda- Changes in the tax laws also homa's estate tax laws which specify that gifts made within will take effect on July ], 19'74. three years of death shall be . deemed to be in contemplation The chmlges will increase of death.

To offset loss of revenue for increased deductions for cer- tain descendents, tile estate tax rate has been increased for others. And tile deductions have been decreased. The tax rate on a $100,000 estate, for example, is ~approx- imately twice if received by a nephew than if received by a son. Tables in the publication-- OSU Extension Facts No. 704-- show the total tax cumulative on net estate and transfers for lineal descendents and other de- scendents. When the new law takes effect, the return and taxes must be paid within nine months of the docedent's death instead of 15 months. The due date for the Oklahoma Estate Tax will be that passes to the father, rod- tiler, wife, husband, child, child of husband or wife, adopted ct~ild or ally lineal descendent of decendent or of such adopted child. If part of the estate is out- side of Oklahonia, the allowable deductions are prorated. If the estate is transferred or tuber.i- ted by someone not mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the $60,000 is not allowed. Another revision in the law deals with appraisal of the es- tate. An estate of a decedent may be valued at date of death or the alternate valuation me- thod may be used. The new Extension publica- tion briefly interprets the tax law changes. Interested persons should refer to Title 68 as amended of the Oklahoma Statues for complete details of the estate tax laws. 1973 - 13 Perkins-Tryon November 19 and 20 MONDAY Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce Tossed Salad Peanut Butter Fudge Bar Peaches Hot Rolls Butter Milk TUESDAY (Thanksgiving Dimmr) Turkey and Dressing English Peas Cranberry Orange Relish Celery Stick Pumpkin Custard w/ Whipped Topping French Bread Butter Milk NO SCHOOL THANKSGIVING VACATION Wednesday, Thursday, Friday l I I I 1. To make sure your heat stays indoors, check your insulation.., especially the weatherstripping around doors and windows, And, see to it that the fireplace damper is closed when not in use. Other hints to assure even more efficient heat- ing this winter: 2. Check your heating equipment thoroughly. Units or systems that are not o erating properly will use more electricity because they have to work harder to heat. & Check filters now Then check them peri- odically during the days ahead. Clogged fit- ters also cause a system to work harder and use more electricity, 4. Keep drapes, shades and curtains closed during the evening 5. Keep doors and win- dows closed. 6. Storm doors and windows will reduc~ your heat loss during the winter. 7. Provide at least 6 inches of insulation in athc. 8. Pick a comfortable ther- mostat settmq, then leave it alone Jugghr-~g the thermostat up and down won't neat tlqe house any taster. !t only makes your system work longer and harder than necessary ELECTRIC SERVICE
