ABOVE THE WATER UNE air has filled the pore space, giving the plants the air they need as well as water. BELOW THE WATER LINE it's a different story. The < roots are shriveled and water-soaked, and there are no root hairs. When the water table is lowered with good drainage, your soil can build the air and water relationship that's ideal for good plant growth. In » well-drained soil the roots go deep to find plant food and water. The roots won't drown as they search foi'^food. And deeper roots won't die of thirst when the .water table drops this summer. S^t^uis todlay today to let us help you with your farm's drainage needs. Esjthervilie Concrete Ploducts Company "For Buildings That LAST Use Our Concrete Products FIRST',' >tr. mnd Mn.

You're still being asked to produce to the limit. The crisis we face today Is a long-range one, and to empty the soil bank now is to gamble with tomorrow's security. Keep your future secure J|}y balancing your soil bank account — deposit for the future as you withdraw for today. * Grow legumes" and grasses In your rotation. They help maintain fertility, control erosion and improve the way the soil works. *Pyticrop| residues, and manure back Into soil to k?pp plenty of organic matter and plant ^food crecUt in your soil account. • * Have your soils tested. Apply commercial fertilizers where needed. * Lime acid soils — it's a sound investment.

The current year promises to be a significant one for soli consorva- tlon In Iowa, says Mendell. Earlier this year a charter was Issued to the Howard county soil conservation district, which placed the Inst uncovered area under orgnnliatlon. The entire state Is now organized Into districts that will provide help to any farmer In Iowa who wishes technical assistance In estaViUshlng conservation practices on his land, m * * THE FIRST soil conservation district In lown was organlted In April, mo, and 99 other districts fallowed In the ensuing 12 years. Legislation enacted by the Iowa logtslaturo In 1939 and 1940 paved the way for these orgnnlzations, Mendell explains. The policy laid dou-n at that lime stated the powers and renponslbll- Ities of the sod conservation district comnUssloners In carr )1ng out conservation work.
