Like any business, a farm must conserve its resources if it is to pay. We have confidence in the wisdom of our country's farmers. Many of them have already begun a program of soil and water conservation on their land. We look forward to seeing many more ada; Hng conservation measures on their farms in 1957! Congratulations, Kay... The Johnson Abstract company has been an advocate of the soil conservation program from the beginning and for many years has taken pleasure in boosting the program in our annual Progress Edition advertisements. It is therefore an added pleasure to see a rural Oskaloosa and Mahaska county girl reign this year as Queen of The Furrow, a title resulting from winning the contest co-sponsored by the Soil Conservation Service. A queen possessing both beauty and personality, Kay has given the city and county added fame in her appearances around the state and nation. Ownership of Land Is Something Besides A Title .... Consult your REAL ESTATE AGENT for expert opinion on the value of properties when buying and selling. If you are a purchaser, consult your ATTORNEY. If you own a farm . . . cooperate with the local Soil Conservation District for the preservation of your land.
