Soil Saving Plan Feeds More Cattle By CHUCK \VAHRKN - ''The problem uMod to be, how many— acres of pasture land for each head of cattle, now, with improved yields through soil conservation farming, it is a question of how many head of cattle I can feed on each a.crc of land," saya Dean Osher, Emmet county farmer. Oshcr, who farms two miles south and east of WalHngford, is going into crop rotation, water way construction and contour farming on a large scale. He estimates that he will be. able to feed his cattle (about 50 head year around) twice as well on the same amount of land as before. Dean is now thinking of ways to uae the extra feed. • * * * WUILK HIS FARM has at leuat 11 soil types, running from class one Nicollet to class seven Storden, and It is cut up by hills and gullies, it is not much different from many other farms in this area. In one place there was a ifully that ran down between two hills and each year carried away tons of top soil. The gully was at least fiwe feet deep in some places. Osher called on his brother, Ed Osher, who operates a bulldozer, and they straightened it out, filled it up and planted grass in the waterway. He seeded it down with canary grass und brome .with oats as a nurse crop. The drop for the waterway, some 60 rods, figures at almost 11 feet. * * * USING THIS waterway and by contour farming on the two hills he has cut his top soil loss Jin this area to almost nothing. Dean suys that sometime soon he hopes to be able to build an erosion control dam in connection with another waterway on his farm. He is breaking up his permanent pasture and turning it to alfalfa and brome. This year he contoured corn on the sloping land. Dean figures the corn yield will more than pay for the work an4 expense of converting the land to alfalfa and brome. Next year he will seed the steepest parts back to pasture . . the rest will go into the six year crop rotation program. » THK SIX YEAR crop rotation plan that Dean Is going into wi'l do away with spring plowing. It will run hay, pasture, corn, small grain, corn and grain und seeding. Like many other Emmet county farmers who arc taking advantage of the services of the soil conger- vation district, Osher ia finding that he can raise more cropa oa less land with less labor and expense. Gene Helle and Clair Kess Turn to page 6, column 8 Radio, TV Barred By G.O.P. Can't Record Delegate Dispute Chicago Ut»> — The republicans barred the door to radio, television and newsreel coverage of their tight over disputed delegates to. day. But then they set up n commit- toe to consider lifting the ban. The running controversy delayed until sometime after 1:30 p. m. (CST) the start of the OOP national committee's hearings to decide which rival delegates to seat from seven states. These 72 contests could swing the nomination next week. Either to Sen. Robert A. Toft or to Gen. Dwlght D. Elsenhower, in the event of a closo race. »• • • HERE'S W1IAT happened as tho pro-convention maneuvering wont Into high gear: The national committee walked out on TV and other cameras set up to record the delegate fight. It moved to a night club room In convention headquarters, tho Conrad Hilton hotel. There, after much do- bate, it voted)67 to 33 In favor of naming a committee to think over the whole TV-ncwsreel-radlo question. .(,-•• The man who proposed'this lution waa an Elsenhower backtjrj Sinclair Weeks of Massachusetts; • » • BUT THE VOTK wasn't a test oi strength between the Taft and Eisenhower 'people. Although much of the opposition came from Tuft supporters — thoy said TV lights and equipment made the hearing room too hot and crowded—there were Taftltcs on both sides In tho final vote. GOP national chairman Guy Ga» brlelson, meanwhile reaffirmed his stand that newly-elected member's •of the national committee will not be able to vote on seating of rival delegations in the Taft-Klsenhowcr fight. Elsenhower supporters had protested against the practice of allowing committee members who had been defeated for re-election, or ,did not seek re-election, to keep their posts and., voting power. <turf»y a.' hbmltiaUn'g• cohvcTntttin'.' '" New Tank Easy To Drive As New Car Newark, Del. UP)—The army today unveiled what It .called the first completely new medium tank to be developed since World War II — streamlined, more powerful, and almost as easy to handle as a new automobile. Designated the M-48, or "Fatten 48," It is being produced at tho Chrysler tank plant hero and at two other arsenals. Officials said sizeable deliveries arc expected before the end of the year. The tank, in the 45 to 60 ton claws, has several notable,new features: * * * 1. A LOWER silhouette than any other American tank of corresponding size, Present U. S. tanks havn been criticized because their height made them easily spotted. 2. An egg-shaped, sloping .elliptical hull and turret. Thla makes It harder for an enemy shell to get a "bite" Into the armor. 3. Wider treads than present medium tanks. Tho wider the tread, tho better the tank con operate on muddy roads, in swampy terrain or in snow. * * • 4. A WKM1LMMKTKU, high velocity gun with a quick change tube. Using only simple tools, tho liner of the gun barrel can be changed in the field in minutes instead of sending the tank back to rear areas for replacement of n whole new gun when repeated firing has worn the rifling of the tube, 5. A 60-calibcr machine gun on top of the turret which can be aimed, fired and loaded from within tho tank. No longer does the gunner have to stand with head und shoulders exposed to enemy fire.
