SAVE SOIL Grass Waterways Aren't Wasted Land Grassed waterways aren't wasted land, »ayi County Agent Don Hasbargen. Establish them wherever they're needed* and they will give you good hay and pasture, beside erosion protection. Waterways are needed on any small draws or channels extending up a slope, or across fields where water runs In volume. Waterways fit into any good soil management plan, along with fertilizing, liming, crop rotation, contouring and terracing, according Minnesota soils scientist. He recommends this procedure for building waterways: Plow in the small gullies, with a back furrow, until the waterway has a broad "saucer" hot- PENS ft PENCILS Ltrje Selection T* Cfieotc Prom Nlftn Printing Co., Inc. 130 W.

Put on at least 200 pounds of ammonium nitrate "-33-0-0—or an equivalent amount of -nitrogen in a different fertilizer. This is important. Areas needing waterways are usually subsoil low in nitrogen and general fertility. Seed a legume-grass mixture. A .good one is alsike clover, red top, brome-grass and timothy. Use a companion crop such as oats. Finally, spread a light application of manure or straw and anchor this material Into the soil by disking "zigzag" from one side of the waterway to the other. Keep the waterways clipped next year so that no residue piles up. Otherwise, the water may concentrate in one small area and start a gully. ARCTIC ATHLETES — Crewmen of the Icebreaker, U. S. S.

W) — An unknown little girl, who today would be a woman in her mid-40s, inspired the designation of the Nation's Christmas Tree, and with it one of the country's most impressive outdoor Christmas services. If she can be found, the Nation's Christmas Tree Festival Committee would like to honor her at this year's 34th annual service, which will be held the Sunday before Christmas beneath the awesome majesty of a giant sequoia. Norman Holt of Sanger, manager of the festival, says the story of the little girl was told to him by the late Charles E. Lee, the man who originated the annual pilgrimage. year-old tree, fi,500 feet up in the mountains. Fewer than 100 persons attended the non-denominational services, but the crowd has grown, each year until now it averages! 2,000 to 2,500. An act of Congress in 1955 designated the tree as a national shrine to American servicemen, living and dead. It was so dedicated in 1956 by Adm. Chester Nimitz, acting as President Eisenhower's presonal representative. While he has undertaken no organized search for the girl who inspired the developments, Chairman Holt says he would like to find her for this year's services. "It would be a fitting tribute," he said, "to this woman who, as Lee related that in 1924 he was ne ?""' to thls woman who » as •ith a nartv of tourists vip«,in<r a chlld > P r °ved the truth of the with a party of tourists viewing the great trees in the Sierra Nevada range 55 miles east'of Fresno.

Gripping his hand, she exclaimed, "My I What a wonderful Christmas Tree it would be!" Then she slipped away in the shadows, and lee never saw her again and never had any idea of her identity. But her remark stuck in his memory. The next Christmas, in 1925, Lee started the services in the snow at the base of the 3,500- saying that 'out of the mouths of babes great wisdom flows.

Pour board member* testified Monday that the board had no segregation policy. The state claims the suit is not an honest effort by the three to enter the Atlanta-based school, but is spurious litigation financed by the NAACP. All three plaintiffs have denied the charge. Under cross examination, Mrs. Myra Elliott Dinsmor* said she understood she and her fellow plaintiffs were receiving assistance from the NAACP In the form of lawyers' fees. Corn Moisture and Net Feeding Values At 25 per cent moisture, it takes 92 pounds of ear corn to equal 70 pounds of ear corn at 15H per cent moisture. If your ear corn contains 30 per cent moisture, you need to feed 100 pounds to give the animals as much feed value as they would get from 70 pounds of the 15% per cent moisture corn, According to Bill Hueg, University of Minnesota agronomist.' : Seasoned birch, maple or oak, sawed into 16-inch lengths, piled 2 feet high and 2 feet long will make a bundle that a city home owner can haul in his car trunk.
