POSTVILLE, IOWA Clayton Soil Conservation District cooperators built more than .26 miles of terraces in 1960. Way land Frederick, chairman of the Clayton Soil Conservation District Commissioners announced today. "Terraces continue to be one of the most popular soil and water conservation practices in the Clayton district" Mr. Frederick said. The new type terrace now being built has a wide shallow channel and a low broad ridge so as to accommodate the larger equipment on the farms today. Another widely used soil and water conservation practice in the Clayton district is the multiple purpose farm pond. Nineteen ponds were used as a source of water supply for livestock and to help control gully erosion. Generally they are stocked with fish to provide recreation for the owner's family and friends. Sixty-five ponds were stocked with large mouth bass, bluegills and channel catfish in the district the past year. When the area around the pond is planted to trees and shrubs it becomes valuable as wildlife habitat. A total of fifty-four acres including the pond areas were developed for wildlife use by planting trees and shrubs for feed and cover. Contour strip cropping is widely used in the Clayton district to conserve soil and water. In 1960. technicians of the Soil Conservation Service who are assisting the Clayton Soil Conservation District cooperators to apply conservation practices on their land, helped farmers to establish 2,322 acres of contour strip cropping. Another 1,924 acres were contour tilled in the year just past. Other soil and water conservation measures applied in the Clayton district in 1960 were 38 miles of tile drains: 50 acres of grass waterways shaped, mulched and seeded: 95 acres planted to trees: six concrete drop spillway dams and four pipe drop inlet gully control structures. It's unfortunate that the symp- tons of fatigue and of laziness are practically identical.
