THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, May 1, 19W •SM Soil Information Found On Maps; Survey Needs Aerial Photographs By 1RV1N ROSS Almost daily we arc asked for various types of soil information by Interested individuals and Soil And Water Saving inviN noss file in the Soil Conservation of- groups. For the answer to their questions we turn to the soil sur- vey maps of Franklin County on fire. All of the soil types found in the counly arc identified on the survey maps and described in the accompanying ledger, What is a soil survey? How is it mndc? Who does it? Who uses it? The answers to these questions will fall into pbcc us we outline the making of a soil survey, Soil in the general sense of the word, covers most of the land surface of the earth. A soil, in the specific sense used here, is one particular part of this cover in one particular place, A soil is three-dimensional. 11 is bounded on (he (op by the surace of the land, on the bottom by rock material, and mi (he sides by other soils. The first job of the soil scientist is to disginguish between these separate soils. He then classifies them, describes them in great detail, and maps them. To make n modern soil survey, the soil scientist needs a set of aerial photographs that completely cover the trca he's going to map, These photographs arc taken from an airplane flying at about 12,500 feel. With each pass Participation In HDU Urged By ROSEMARY CRIST This week — Kansas Home Demonstration Week, spotlights a part of the Kansas Extension Service. The Home Economics Extension program, conducted by the 105 counly Extension Councils in the state, Kansas Stale University and the United Stales Department of Agriculture influenced more than 170,500 Kansas homemakcrs during the past year as they learned the newest information in Home Econmics. There are 37,000 home demonstration unit members in the state, but many limes thai number of homemakcrs receive extension information through public extension meetings) special interest classes, homo visits, telephone or office calls, extension bulletins, newspapers, radio and television. In Franklin County there arc 537 home demonstration unit members in 33 units. These units have Home Is Where.. Ry ROSEMARY CRIST at least 10 educational meetings during the year. In addition they work with many community projects. Units study a variety of home economics subjects including home furnishings, home management, foods and nutrition, fam- PIIOTOGRAPIIERS' FRIEND - Judy Waller, El Dorado, has been crowned Miss Kansas News Photographer by Kansas News Photographers Association and will represent stale in National Press Photographers Association pageant in Grand Tcton National Park in June, 1 -J 11 BURCH It TRADE-INS (Locally Owned) 1945 International M Tractor International 4-row corn planter with rubber tires Case 10 ft., 4-wheel disc—nearly new 2 section rotary hoe 4 section rotary hoe International 15 ft. drag harrow—and others.

In addition units also study safe- .y ' citizenship, civil defense, in- .crniitiorml relations, and cultural arts. Although (here are many ways a homcmaker may participate in [he extension program, the homemaker who is interested in the whole extension program will find membership in a home demonstration unit is rewarding. I am always glad to talk to any group about forming a Home Demonstration Unit. Home economics township representatives will also answer your questions about these organizations. More and more zippers arc being made of synllietic monofilament coil. This trend makes more care in ironing and pressing necessary. An iron set for synthetic or sleam will not damage the zipper, however, higher temperature will fuse or melt the coil, When the fastener is in a fabric that requires a higher ironing temperature it is not necessary to reduce the temperature when ironing the placket area, .lust a press cloth over the placket will protect the zipper. Keep a press cloth at your ironing board to protect the new zippers, These new zippers have several advantages over the metal ones. They arc inconspicuous, light, flexible, and strong. When raveled edges arc caught, the zipper will separate and rcmesh when the fastener is zippcred all the way down and then up, Sinner's Sunday; Saints Can't Com CI11COPEE, Mass. (AP) - The Rev. C. W, Kirkpatirck, pastor of the Federated Church, says the sermon at next Sunday's 10:45 a.m. service is "for sinners only and all saintly persons arc re quested to stay home." The pastor notified his congregation today that he is making the •cqucsl "so we may concentrate on sinners, to whom we offer a cordial invitation regardless o low large or small their involvement is." across the area, the plane overlaps the previous pass, photographing part of the same landscape from a different angle. When a soil scientist looks at two of these overlapping photographs under a stcroscopc, he can see three dimensions. Differences in elevation arc sharply defined. The hills and valleys are clearly seen, small buildings and trees stand up, while draws and canyons fall down. For Ihc field work, the soil scientist equips himself with the photographs, a space and a hand auger. He is ready to map the soils. There arc thousands of different kinds of soil, and the soil scientist has to measure or estimate the important properties of ach soil in order to know for sure which kind he has. He estimates how fast water moves hrough the soil and how much will stay there. Me measures the steepness of the slope and estimates the amount of soil lost by erosion. He notes the depth of he rooting zone, the amount of organic matter, and the acidity or alkalinity. As he goes the soil scientist Iraws lines on the maps when ic crosses from one soil to another. Some of these lines indicate abrupt changes, other gradual transitions. When he has fin- shed the maps they look a bit ike a jigsaw puzzle. He identi- 'ies each piece of the "puzzle" with a symbol, and he uses the same symbol every time he finds :hat particular soil. Soil information is useful to all people, directly or indirectly, Its importance to farmers, ranchers, and foresters has long been rec ognizcd. Now city people arc be ginning to realize how much influence it has on both their homes and business. Some of the frequent users ol soil information are land appraisers, realtors, builders, engi nccrs, city planners, foresters, nurserymen, canncrs, pieplinc companies, and insurance companies. Even if you arc in none of these professions soil surveys are important 1o you. The information that they provide profoundly affects the economic life of every American. 315 West Wilson CH 2-2433 Change Now to The GAS That doesn't "Use - up" so fast Ottawa Skelgas John Martin, Mgr. 505 N.
