Bridge, which will span Rock Creek, will be 130 feet long and will replace older bridge that became wornout with age and flood damage. B ft B Industries, St. Paul, is general contractor. (Herald Photo) Conservation Dollar Is Money Well Spent Today's column is written by Emmett L. Richter, Soil Conservationist, assigned to the Franklin County Office.—The Editor. Franklin County farmers have just put aside their pens and pencils after completing their annual income tax returns. I am sure as you went over your income and expenses for 1962, you saw where money spent on conservation increased or at least maintained your annual income. In many cases your conservation dollars decreased your machinery operating expenses by less fuel consumption and fewer parts to be replaced. You also saw where many of your conservation dollars were a tax deductible item. Right now would be a good time to do some planning for additional conservation practices on your farm. We, as technicians, assisting the Franklin County Soil Conservation District, are always ready to furnish planning assistance. It may be that you need a plan on land which you have own ed for some time or on land which you recently have purchased. This is your plan based on your own decisions. Your decisions may be guided by many things depending on the way in which you wish to treat your land in accordance with its needs and capabilities. You will want to learn all you can about your soil. Farms differ in their productive capacities and limitations. What crops are suited to the type of soil you have? Do you have erosion hazards or drainage problems? How well does your soil hold and store moisture? All these considerations and many more will influence your choice of practices. Recently, we've been changing some of our ideas about crop ro- tation. In the past we've thought liat the best rotations were always those in which legumes and od crops were grown frequent- y. Now we realize that except or the possible effects of the eep-rooted legumes, many of he functions of legume rotations can be achieved by non-le- ;ume cropping systems and syn- hetic nitrogen. If crop yields are increased by the use of syn- Backache relief pills bring mild diuretic action through the kidneys Unwise eating or drinking may be a source of mild but annoying bladder irritations- making you feel restless, tense, and uncomfortable.

(AP)- Uncle Sam may not believe it, but motorcycle patrolman John Sarric co's income tax return just blew away. The return was attached to a clipboard on Sarricco's motorcy cle ready for mailing prior to the Monday midnight deadline. But when Sarricco gunned his motorbike after a reportedly stolen car, the papers broke loose and flew off toward a shopping center. He got his man, though. thetic nitrogen, there will be more organic residues that can be incorporated into the soil to keep the organic-matter activity high. With proper fertilization, on permeable, nonerosive soils, continuous corn production becomes a possiblity. This doesn't mean that legume rotations should be tossed out. It just means that you have more alternatives to choose from in planning your soil - management and cropping program. It is still true that on soils that are flat, slowly permeable and very fine textured, it is doubtful if efficient levels of crop production can be maintained without the periodic use of sod crops. And, of course, on sloping land subject to erosion, they still are needed. Sound soil management must include those practices that check the runoff of water and help it soak into the soil where it can be used by growing crops. Such practices include the maintenance of good soil tilth and vegetative cover. Grass waterways, terraces and contour tillage will be needed. Remember that when you keep your soil in a high state of fertility, you actually are helping to control erosion. Fertile soil means higher crop yields, and these in turn mean more crop residues and better cover for the soil.

(AP) -A $30,000 fire destroyed the Sante Fe Railroad's car repair shop in Dodge City Tuesday and a foreman blamed sparks from a nearby trash fire. The block-long wooden building is six blocks east of the Dodge City business district. Two freighi pars alongside the shop also were destroyed. The shop contained repair machinery and a supply of lumber. The damage estimate was made by Howard Wormington, division superintendent for the railroad in Dodge City. The car crew foreman, H. G. Drolte, said he believed the fire was caused by sparks blown from a trash fire near the building. Strong winds whipped the city during the day.

Extend Santa Fe Strike Ban CHICAGO (AP)-An injunction iamng a strike on the Santa Fe lailway has been extended six days to allow the line time to ;eek review of the work rules lispute by the U.S. Supreme 'ourt. The injunction, issued last October, was scheduled to terminate Tuesday. It barred the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen from striking in the work rules dispute U.S. Dist. Judge Joseph Sam Perry extended the injunction to THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, April 17, IMS icxt Monday after the Santa F« asked additional time to appeal. G. George Niebank, counsel for the line, said he plans to file with the high court later this week a motion for an injunction pending application for a review. A railroad spokesman said a walkout would tie up service on the Santa Fe's main east-west lines from Albuquerque, N.M. and Purcell, Okia., to Chicago. Separate contracts cover the remainder of the system. The union contends the dispute should be considered apart from the national work rules controversy now before a presidential emergency board. The Santa Ft contends the dispute is part of the national picture. U. S.
