Conservation Comments Management Vital In Farm Operation By mVIN F. ROSS SCS Conservationist Those of you who attended the fine Crops and Dairy School presented by the extension personnel I am sure came away impressed, as I was. The speakers covered their respective subjects well and thoroughly. They brought to us the vital information which we need to carry out the day-to-day activities of farming. New procedures, crop varieties, insecticides and other research data must be adequately presented to those who ultimately will use it. Without this explanatory step a big value of the research is lost Irvin The results are never applied in daily use. The one thing from the school which I want to bring out here is the repeated reference by the speakers to "good management." The management of a farm enterprise today is a complex of allotments, adjustments, labor and capital. Wise or good management can weigh these factors and use them in the proper amounts to yield a profit. One of the big adjustments often called for by good management is the application of conservation practices to the farm operation. This may vary from a few minor cultural practices to the most complex arrangement of mechanical and structural practices. By careful analysis of the factors affecting production the operator can determine when conservation practices should be applied. Declining yields, poor soil structure and finally gully formation are the signs of excess soil loss. As this loss of topsoil increases into the "gully" stage the profit begins to disappear and only the good manager can restore it. The "good manager," by consulting with the conservation technicians, can determine which practices can be applied where and when to yield the greatest return. At all times the application of these practices must be fitted not only to the cropping system but also to the pocketbook. Many practices can be applied at little or no direct cost which will yield benefits very soon. The more extensive mechanical and structural practices will involve a higher first cost. Also these practices are usually somewhat slower to show a profit. In time the returns will exceed the establishment cost and the farm will be on a stable and profitable basis. Good Management is the key to success. It will readily recognize the problem and be capable of coming up with the most profitable solution. 'Robin Hood 9 Up To Old Tricks Rebekah Installation At WelLsville WELLSVILLE — Installation of officers was held recently at Wellsville Rebekah Lodge, No. 356. Installing officers were district deputy president, Mrs. 0.

A reliable source said the desperados bribed guards at the heavily guarded army Camp Ko- kolo Sunday and walked through the main gate. The Congo Robin Hood who, a detective said, holds a diploma from the "Paris university of gangsterism," is known as Ang- walima. His real name is Jean Angwadima. Two military tribunals sen tenced him to death earlier this month for a three-month crime rampage after his escape from Makala Prison last Sept. 17. Ang- walima was recaptured in November. Angwalima acquired the Robin Hood designation last year because he gave money to African children and Leopoldville's unemployed.

Change Now to The GAS That doesn't "Use-up" so fast Ottawa Skelgas John Martin, Mgr. 505 N. Main PH. CH 2-3958 OLLAR and SENSE FARMING From Your Full-Service Bank APPLY LIME SOON. Take soil tests and get lime down while trucks can still get over the ground. Your crop yields may suffer from soil acidity unless limestone is applied. To get best results from fertilizer, soil pH should be in the range of 6.5 to 7.0. To get as much benefit from the lime this season as possible make sure the limestone isn't too coarse. At least 50% should pass through a 60 mesh screen. KEEP POULTRY HOUSE LITTER DRY. The improper management of poultry litter can result in poor flock performance. Litter is constantly taking on and giving off water. It may come from bird excretions, spillage from fountains, or from condensation from walls and roof. Moisture can be removed from litter by proper ventilation and movement of air through the house. Litter should be deep enough to properly serve as a regulator of the moisture on the floor of the house. For best results it should be about 8 inches deep. BASE GRAIN RATION for dairy cows on the quality of hay in the mow. There's a big difference in the feed value of hay based on its quality. Feeding tests indicate that it takes more than twice the normal amount of grain when feeding poor quality hay to prevent severe drops in milk flow. If you're running low on hay it will pay you to buy good quality. Generally you can afford to pay up to 2/3 as much for a ton of high quality hay as you pay for a ton of grain. SOCIAL SECURITY TAXES ARE UP AGAIN. This year you must withhold 3% percent of an employee's wages. This amount must be matched by the employer and deposited after a total of $100 has been collected.
