The big onion farms of south Texas should start shipping these seedlings this week. At the nursery I am often asked by curious gardeners how to grow a good crop of onions. The secret really is in the timing. Because our summers are sO warm, we have to choose short-day onions. (Foils up north plant long-day onions.) These short-day onions are planted during the 'short days' of fall and winter, and start the bulbing process when the length of the day reaches 10 to 12 hours. They mature in 110 to 120 days. Onions planted in the fall have a longer time to grow than those planted in IT'S/ winter or early spring. Simply stated - the earlier you plant them, the larger the onion. Here are some tried and true varieties for our central Texas region: Texas lO15y- A super sweet, globe-shaped yellow onion that can reach a 6 inch diameter. This is the favorite onion of Texas. 1015 means 10th month, 15th day. This is the date they should be planted from seed. The 'Y' means - yellow, the color of the onion. Contessa A white, globe- shaped onion. Not as sweet as 1015 hut still on the sweet side. Mature size - 5 inches. Yellow Granex- A semi- fiat, yellow, sweet onion that can grow to a mature width of 5 inches. This is the Vidalia onion of Georgia. Bermuda - This is an heirloom variety brought from the Canary Islands to south Texas in the late 1800s. Bermuda is white, sweet, and its shape is flat. Grows to 3 to 4 inches in diameter. This vari- ety makes great 'green' onions when harvested early. Southern Belle Red - A sweet, red, globe-shaped on- ion that matures to 4 inches. Onions need lots of sun- shine and good drainage. Adding compost will loosen compacted soils and add beneficial amendments to the soft. Onion seedlings (sets) should be planted 1 inch deep and 4 to 5 inches apart. If you want to harvest green onions, plant 2 inches apart and har- vest every other onion, leaving some to grow to maturity. Be sure to water in your onions after planting. This will keep them from drying out and give them a good start. Happy gardening everyone!

The train carrying the dean from the Univer- sity of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) on his fact- finding mission to the Texas Panhandle roiled into Ama- rillo on Nov. 6, 1935. A lot was riding on the out- come of the unusual inquiry. If Robert. E "Ted" Key proved to be an impostor, the star player would be kicked off the football team and UCLA could forget about the Rose Bowl. How things had changed in two short weeks! Key was king of the sun-baked campus after scoring the tying touchdown and kicking the decisive extra point in the Bruins' 7-6 win over Stanford. The stunning upset of the defending cham- pion made UCLA a legitimate contender in the Pacific Coast Conference for the first time in 19 years. A day or two later, aWest Texas schoolteacher hap- pened to see a publicity photo of Ted Key in her local paper. She recognized the pigskin hero as Clois Francis "Short~' Key, a student of hers atVemon High School in the late 1920's. Without a moment's hesitation, the educator picked up the phone and dialed the dean of men at UCLA. The revelation did not come as a complete surprise to Earl I. Miller. Like every- body else at UCLA, he too had heard the rumor that Ted Key had exhausted his four ~ears of athletic eligibility ack in Texas and may even be playing under an assumed IN name. Key's appearance was enough to arouse suspicion. How many college boys had forehead furrows, crow's-feet and bags under their eyes? For Dean Miller his original strategy of looking the other way was no longer an option. The cat was bound to get out of the bag, and his job was to spare the university as much embarrassment as possible. Five minutes before the kickoff of the UCLA-Califomia game, Miller walked into the Bruin locker room and announced the suspension of Ted Key pending a full in- vestigation. His disheartened teammates trudged onto the field like condemned men to a mass execution and lost by a dozen points. Attracted by the scent of scandal, a pack of news- hounds tracked the fugitive fullback to a swanky section of Los Angeles, where he lived with his father in a cottage on the grounds of a palatial estate. His offspring was unavailable for comment, but Iames D. Key answered the vile accusation by declaring, "I ought to know my own son." With coaches, players and alumni clamoring for Key's reinstatement before the Sat- urday showdown with SMU, Dean Miller decided to hop the next train for the Texas Panhandle. The two Keys promised to accompany him but missed the Nov. 5 depar- ture. In Amarillo Dean in- terviewed Earl "Ox" Key. a standout at Southern Method- ist in the 1920s, who swore up and down UCLA's Ted was his younger brother. But R.E. Vaughn, school superinten- dent at Panhandle, positively identified the mystery man as Short)' Key who had played for him at Vernon in 1928. The ex-coach angrily added that letter bearing his signature and vouching for Key's alias was a forgery. Pressured into a public up- date, Dean Miller stated at a Nov. 4 press conference, "I be- lieve as I did last Saturday that our Ted Keyis not eligible for football." However, he refused to speculate on who the fake fullback might really be. That issue was resolved when the real Robert E "Ted" Key finally came forward and spilled the beans. The pride of UCLA with the same name was his cousin Shorty. He sheepishly admitted loaning Short3, his high-school tran- script from Panhandle so he could gain admission to the West Coast college and keep on playing football. Shorty Key at last broke his silence and set the record straight. After graduating high school at Vernon, he played two years for Weathefford Jtmior College and two more at the Texas School of Mines in El Paso. Refusing to abide by the four-year rule, he mas- queraded as "Tex Maness" for a fifth seasonat Urban Military Academy in suburban Los Angeles before enrolling at UCLA with his kinsman's credentials. "Sure, a lot of folks are going to laugh," Shorty conceded. "But if they knew the hours I've spent worrying about the day when I would be exposed, they would understand the hell I've gone through." The UCLA coach professed astonishment and insisted he never had a clue. "The way Ted and his father stuck to- gether, I'd have swom he was okay. As it turns out, it looks as if I'm not much of a coach or else I would have had a smart fellow like Ted in there calling the signals." SMU, the eventual national champion, blanked Key-less UCLA 21-0. The Bruins rallied to win their final four games and finished in a three-way tie for first place in the PCC, but Stanford went to the Rose Bowl. Aided by Shorty's solemn assertion that he kept his dirty little secret to himself, UCLA did not receive so much as a rap on the knuckles for the gross violation of the eligibil- ity rule. lust another "honest" mistake in the scandal-ridden history of college football!
