Othie,McMurray, natural resources council director, reported on the status of the state water plan. "We are facing several potential problems with water," he said citing an increase in the use of water for irrigation purposes, energy production cooling systems and rural water districts. The natural resources council, said McMurray, has received additional state funding for the water plan for 1976-77. He said the money was "consolidation funding" because the council works with other state agencies on the water plan. The water plan is presently divided up into task plans being prepared with the help of the department of environmental quality, the energy policy council, the office of planning and programming, the department of transportation, the state conservation commission and the Iowa geological survey. The task plans include areas on water availability, river basin control, socio-economic impact and data base needs. McMurray the resources council and the other agencies are prepareing the task force statements for review in June. The groups will continue prepartation of the water plan and the first report is scheduled for 1977. McMurray said the council will hold public hearings in October, 1977 in each of the state's congressional districts for additional imput. McMurray said the final report will be released in late 1977. William Greiner, director of the state soil conservation department, reported on the progress of cost-sharing soil conservation programs. During the past two and one-half years, over 10,000 Iowa farmers have applied for cost-sharing erosion control programs but only 6,000 of the applications have been approved due to limited funds, Greiner said. Under a cost-sharing soil erosion program, the farmer making soil conservation improvements on his property must follow state guidelines to be eligible for up to 60 per cent reimbursement. Greiner said that the soil conservation department is' understaffed for the inspection of such projects. He added that no preferential treatment is given to farmers participating in the projects but that the department is in favor of permanent projects. 4-H Club News The Mount Merry Makers and the Grant Sheridan Jolly Janes held a joint 4-H meeting March 20th in the Farm Bureau meeting room.

It is believed to be the first printed recipe for the versatile spud. We have come a long way since Herr Rumpolt wrote his book. Today the potato appears on American dinner tables more often than any other vegetable, and the ways they can be prepared are vitually unlimited. Potatoes are used for appetizers, soups, salads, entrees and even desserts. Potatoes were unknown in the Western world until the Spanish conquistadores plundering their way through Peru during the 16th century,spotted a group of Incas eating them, a habit they had acquired around 500 B.C. When the Spaniards brought back the potato, it was viewed with suspicion by Europeans who discovered to their alarm that the tuber was a member of the nightshade family noted for its poisonous qualities. Finally, Europeans cautiously fed potatoes to their ,pigs and chickens but refused to join in the feast. It wasn't until a famine forced the people of Sweden to turn to the tuber for sustenance that the potato came into its own. The potato made its society debut in the 18th century when Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette of France began serving them at royal banquets.- Soon the top chefs of France and Germany were • coming forth with gourmet dishes like Pommes Marguerite and Francillon Salad, which calls for marinating hot potatoes in champagne, then decorating them with truffles. Irish immigrants brought the potato to the United States after the famine of the mid-19th century forced thousands to flee their homeland. Hence the origin of , the name Irish spud. Don't be fuelish.
