Ordinarily it spreads Ike a silent cancer. But in southeastern Colorado today it is a tangible, fearsome force, Veil fee) the grit between your .eeth, between your fingersi in 'OUng eyes, even though it may not be blowing. You begin to itch all over with it as you watch'im'ls after mile of fences buried in blown dust and sand, telegraph pole^ and farm equipment bankuci high with the .powdery stuff that kills rich farmland. The further south and east you go, the fewer furrowsyoucandi.s- cern in -what was plowed wheat- land a short week ago. .You can drive 100 miles east of here and see little .sign of the disastrous dust storm of last week and the blow Monday that added Insult to injury. But once into Hugo, the Lincoln County seat, you know the dust has been there. This is what I saw when I made a trip into the area: ! Just .a few miles to the south andllie world turned gray. A few hundred yards off main Highway 109 .on a section-like road you could'see the .first bitter evidence. It looked curiously like an ocean beach with a few weeks rising above the. wind-sculptured sand. There was moisture beneath it'. Broken cedar fence posts looked like driftwood. . Bob .White of Rocky ord, who superintends 70,000 acres of Colorado farmland for the Baughman farms Co. of Liberal, Kan., was driving by. "This is hardly anything," he said. "Go to Haswell and Eads. It'll break your heart. "See, this winter wheat is still green, even though it's sick and you can barely see the furrows that were here until last week. With moisture, this will still make wheat. . 'It's not as bad as it was in Texas,In the 1930s, but I've never seen one storm do as much damage as that one last week," Farther south you noticed that the fences not covered by dunes were blown thick with weed.s, like brown hedgerows. The Old Grind BUFFALO, N.Y.
