MODIFICATIO OF PINK BOLLWORM QUARANTINE
The recent finding of pink bollworm infestations inll the vicinity of San Angelo, Tex., and at points in the surrounding area again necessitates an extension of the regulated area. Under this amendment there is added the entire Texas counties of Concho, Irion, Mitchell, Sterling, and Tom Green, and that part of Coke County lying southwest of and including the right-of-way of Highway No. 87. No other change is made in this amendment.
