Conservation Comments By William A. Mills District Conservationist Resource Conservation and De velopment has emerged as a result of successes achieved principally in soil and water conservation. Certainly the whole en vironment has needed, and in some cases received, special treatment. This success has come from carefully planned and applied re search of simple contour layout on a single field to complete watershed treatment and control. The whole environment is crying for, and receiving treatment, because of confidences built from simple, lasting measures applied successfully to land. Confidences once or twice removed from land operations, sons, and sons of sons from the agricultural environment, even though no longer actively engaged in farm activities remember with fondness and nostalgia the results obtained from good land use and water conservation, "my dad was one of the first to build terraces on his land' a young bank executive told me recently. Another said "our neighbors really thought my dad had gone off his rocker when he saw us strip cropping our farm". Still another said to me "our neighbors were predicting all kinds of trouble because we used commercial fertilizer, why, somebody told my dad all the night crawlers and earthworms would die when he started using fertilizer, instead, we have more than ever". We also hear comments about agricultural drainage causing our water tables to go down to dan gerous levels, cause wildlife to disappear from our country side, when in reality there are more upland game birds per acre of good agricultural land than could exist in native prairies alone Granted these birds need nesting places, but they also need food which is supplied from soybean and corn fields. Land use planning currently involves people from all walks of life. The housewife knows when an environmental disaster wipes out orange groves, for example. What happens? The price goes up. Beef gets in small supply- again up goes the prices, it's simply a matter of supply and demands and Mrs. Housewife, you really may not know it, but you do set the price on things. Let's face it, I don't like riots, don't like demonstrations, I guess I'm as peaceable as anyone you meet but I'm vehemently against littering, air and water pollution, soil depletion and misuse of the God given blessings of our environment. These things in our environ onment including people are in some cases of the people, for the people and by the people, many problems in our environment are man made. It will take man's planning and ingenuity to control and correct them, and it will take man's concern and recognition before any work starts.

Millipedes — which are dark brown, cylindrical-shaped creatures IVi inches long with many legs—migrate from pastures and wasteland in August and September, Gunderson said. "They can climb foundation walls and get into homes through cracks in siding, around windows and under doors. They pose no real danger other than being It's a cool dating game for teens too Your favorite date will really enjoy an evening of bowling on our lanes. Hi-Way Lanes Postville, Iowa nuisances," the specialist com mented. He suggested sweeping the animals up and carrying them outside to get rid of those already in the home. Crickets too, like the comforts of man's houses as cooler weather approaches. They are also at tracted by light. To get rid of those that have already come in doors, go after them with a fly swatter, Gunderson advised. To keep crickets and millipedes from coming into your home, spray the foundation of your home and at least the first 10 feet of lawn out from the base of the foundation with a mixture of four tablespoons of 50w or 80s carbaryl (Sevin) per gallon of water. Apply at the rate of two gallons per 1,000 square feet of lawn. "Rain will wash the spray away, so apply again if needed," the specialist said.
