The objective of such a district is to do progressive erosion control work .using all the. latest known methods or, soil conservation on the agricultural lands lying within "the boundaries of this district. It is a cooperative enterprise In which the farmers work together among themselves to carry on a complete coordinated soil conservation program on their farms. The process' of forming a district is 'democratic in every respect. First, the landowners have petitioned the State Soil Conservation Committee for .a.? .district, a, public hearing was'*, held' at three places within theT'dis-,*" trict at which the'needs of a'dis-' trict were publicly discussed, and"tne State Committee f ullyl appreciated the conditions and set a date for a referendum.

If the district is voted on favorably by the landowners and • the state committee sees fit to set Up a district, the farmers will elect a Board of Supervisors consisting of three farmers to serve with two other" outstanding farmers appointed by the State Committee. These men study the problem of erosion control, make 'necessary surveys and write out a program which they think will serve to curb erosion on the agricultural land within the district. Then they may secure help from a num. ber of government agencies, namely, the soil Conservation Service, Civilian Conservation Corps, State Forestry Commission, State Extension Service and a number of others who stand ready to cooperate with the organized efforts of the farmers.
