SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1933 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE EXTENSIVE WORK IN CONSERVATION IS DONE BY CCC Projects in North Iowa Are Listed; Progress Ahead of Expectations. AMES (#)--President Roosevelt's civilian conservation corps, 4,400 strong in Iowa, has accomplished more toward recliwiation of the state's natural resources in the last seven months than conservation officials dared hope for, according to Prof. G. B. MacDonald, director of the work in Iowa, With a 25 year conservation plan t already outlined, the Iowa camps got off to a head start in June with a comprehensive program at hand- Throughout the summer and early 'Co o H r o l d Friends, Ixyal and True, to valued New Friends, and to thoso whose Friendship we strive to Serve, do wo most heartily wish unmeasured Success and Good Fortune througuoxit this Year and tho Many years to come.

On Nov. 1, stalling the second period, 22 camps were located in Iowa, employing 4,400 enlisted men and 200 technical work directors on an increased monthly payroll of 5105,000, of which more than $110,000 wag sent home to dependents of the workers each month. Includes Six Lines. MacDonald said Iowa's program is more diversified than in other states, embracing . six major lines of activities while other states concentrated on one or two main projects such as soil erosion control and reforestation. More than 22,000 soil erosion control dams were constructed by the Iowa CCG to check washing away of soil. Most of this work was in southern Iowa. MacDonald pointed out that the work was 'started too late in the year for tree planting, but it is planned to plant several million trees in state parks and in badly eroded areas. Five artificial lakes are being constructed by the CCC. Plans for two more have been submitted to federal officials and preliminary work has already begun. Swimming boating and picnicking- areas are being established in each place. Malto Other Improvements. Lake Wapello, near Bunch, in Davis county, covering almost 300 acres, was completed this summer by contract. The CCC camp built fish nursery ponds, a half mile of road in the park and is now working on a hoathouse, bathhouse and landscaping around the lake. Near Oskaloosa, artificial I/ake Kcomah is under construction. It will cover 85 acres. Sixty thousand yards of material have been moved, 30,000 oE this actually in the dam, the balance in stripping and opening of the seal trench. This dam is about 25 per cent complete. In Backbone State park, Delaware county, a 100 acre artificial lake is being built. The major part of the excavation is completed and 1,000 of the 5,000 yards of concrete .0 go into the clam has been poured. The work of clearing- the lake bed s partly completed. Artificial Lake Built. Near Solon, in Cedar county, is an artificial 250 acre lake under construction. The CCC will finish driving sheet piling by Jan. 1 and .ias completed clearing half of the lake bottom land. On the Iowa State college cam- aus at Ames the Boone CCC camp ,a working to rehabilitate a 3 acre lake. Twenty-thousand yards of dirt has been dredged out, a diversion ditch to carry off flood waters built and dams to impound the water are in progress.

Soil erosion control formed a arge part of the work during the summer months, but with the advent of cold weather, 'the CCC .urned to park developments. Neary all camps arc now working in state and municipal park areas, building foot trails and bridges, developing' picnic areas, constructing mrk furniture and landscaping. The building program for nearly fill state parks calls for erection of shelters, cabins, hoathouses and bathhouses and this work will be carried on through the winter. Insect and disease control surveys to locate and exterminate pests destroying plant life have played an important part in the CCC program. Entomologists directed by Dr. George Docker have tallied more than 80,000 oak trees in all scctions of the state which were found to be dying or dead from attacks of the two-lined oak borer. Camps at McGregor, Decorah and Cresco, where heavy infestations o£ the borer were found, were concentrating on this work. Good for Boys. Seven months' observation of the young men in the camps led Prof. MacDonald to tbe belief that they are "much better off being in camp from every standpoint." "Many of the boys are getting some technical experience in forestry, surveying, landscaping and other subjects with which the work is concerned," he said. "And with the enlarged educational program now under way, the enrolled boys will have an opportunity to get a good start toward training along one or more technical lines. "It must be remembered that the main purposes of tho camps sire to give relief to young men and at the same time to acomplish conservation work of lasting benefit to the state. We are not only attempting to build lakes and dams and develop our parks--we are trying to keep up the morale of our young men and develop them as well." listed in North Jowa.

PARIS /P--During talks Friday afternoon of Joseph Paul-Boncour and Sir John Simon, the French .nd British foreign ministers, Trance stood by her guns against 3erman rearmament and Premier Mussolini's demands for changes in the league of nations. British support for at least a part of the French program was announced in French quarters. It was said that the statesmen agreed the fundamentals of the eague must not be touched--al- :hough II Duce has threatened Italy's withdrawal if it is not broadened--and that the bothersome armament question'must be settled at Geneva and not through bi-lateral agreements. The French foreign minister made it plain that France cannot agree with the German revised arms demand, which were sent here confidentially Dec. 19. Wants SOO.COQ Men. Reliable reports said Chancellor Hitler wanted a German army of 300,000, fully armed, and equality in war materials, and offered a 10 year pact of non-aggression. It was reported also that Sir John was ready to suggest that Germany accept an army of 250,000, an arms control scheme, and certain moves toward "moral" disarmament. The French viewpoint, however, was that the problem must be taken up in Geneva. M. Paul-Boncour and Premier Chautemps agreed to postpone a parliamentary declaration of policy regarding Germany in order to avoid disturbing the British mediation efforts. Today's conferences were attended also by the French premier and the British ambassador, Lord Tyrrell. Ilcald Weak Substitute.
