Washington Farmnotes His Number Wasn't Up WASHINGTON (UP>—The Amev-. lean farmer must keep his fnrni-j lands productive through soil mull water conservation if a high wild-! life liopulatlon is to be assured n this country, according (o Dr. Hugh H. Bennett, chief of the Aijrlcul- lure Department'!! Soil Conserv.i- tlon Service. "There is no other way to assure oiir overall wildlife population fov the future," Dr. Bennett said. ",h!3t as there is no other way to guarantee our future production of food and other cro|>s except by preserving -our good lands. "That means treating every acre according to its individual needs, using each acre for the type of crop it is best suited lo produce. Some of those farmland acres are best suited to produce wildlife crops. "Everything the soil conservaUort- .st does to help assure the maximum production o( cropland, tureland and woodlands, along witii imple supplies of clear water in lakes and streams, benefits the nation's wildlife." •Principal Game Manager' Dr. Bennett, an International conservation authority, did not overlook the importance of wildlife refutes, national parks and other ci-n- 0*rs of- wildlife migration luid breeding. •-, He pointed out. however, th/it "we must rely on our farmlands and ranchlands for the everyday, year In and year out. hunting and fishing:" Ljwting at it from this viewpoint, he said, "the farmer, who in the U, S. today with conditions 1 found by the llrst settlers.

By CLAIUE COX United Press Staff {'.orresTlondent CHICAGO. (UP >—Lexiclgrapher Mitford M. Matthews will have to be convinced the atomic bomb is here to stay. .Matthews is compiling a "Dictionary of- Americanisms" to'be |)jiblished by the University of Chicago Press, lie said not one of the 50.COO terms in the work would mention the atomic bomb or other new war words. A lexicographer is n person who writes .'or. compiles dictionaries. Matthews has spent many years dissecting words and worked 01 tlie nniveisity's Dictionary of American English, published several years ago. '"There won't be room for the atomic bomb or other new war words in my dictiom.ry until I am sure they are here to stay." he said. lie added that Vie wanted to watt' until the smoke had died away before entering the words, so he could be sure of their source. "It will be necessary for some intervene/' he explained. "Many of these words will drop from use, and we want to be. sure of them before putting them into E. dictionary. •"Brand i\ew words are like babies. You can't say whether they are gOin« to live or die. or whether they are going to be respectable." That's why the prohibition term "hooch" is one of the newest words to be listed in his dictionary, he said; "It's slang, but it has a more honorable ancest:y than most slang," he explained. "It grew to respectability after thc Alaskan Indians started calling it 'hooch- inio.' meaning homemade firewater." Matthews emphasized that hi: dictionary would include onlyti few slan« words. It will consist entirely AUBURN, Ala. lUPi— Fish farming is growing more and more popular in Alabama and it's giving a new slant to the fisherman's tale. Reports from the officials of the Alabama department of agriculture reveal that nearly 4.000 farmers have put, in their own fishing ponds. Some 500 were completed last year and plans have been made for another 1.000 of the triple-benefit water projects. Experts point out that they hold rainwater on the land helping to offset the effects of drought, .supply water for stock, and provide up to 300 ix>unds per acre a year of downright entertaining fish. New Twist lo Fish Tale It has been strongly hinted that the old-style fish story about the size of the one that Kot away is being replaced that starts "why I've got sa many fish in my poiid." While department reports admit that pond fishin'g won't ever replace stream fishing, they claim that il's a welcome substitute to many a busy fainrer. The report emphasized that fish can become i a regular farm crop. Well-managed fertilized ponds will provide up to 300 pounds of eating-sized fish per acre e nch year. Secret lo that success, ac- ording to thc report, is thc use of 6-8-4 fertilizer alo»g with Hi- rate of soda or ammonium ni- rate. Experts add that it's a mistake .o plant weeds. The won't improve .he fishing a nd may well ruin J Jond in two or three years. Some Rent to Fisktrs For those farmers who aren't keen about fish, the department points out that some pond owners sell fishing rights for from *10 to $20 per acre. The people who rent thc fishing usually fertilize the ponds. ivfany farmers who don't rent tlie fishing, catch the crop themselves and then sell the fish, Alabama county agents report Brown Club Meets The Brown 4-1!
