Says Million Men Could Work on Soil Conservation Bennett Stresses Fight on Erosion and Floods. AMES--To fight erosion' and recurrent floods--w h i c h h e blamed lo a large extent on improper cultivation--H. H. Bennett, director of the soil conservation service, Washington, Thursday told a Farm and Home Week audience at Iowa State college that "even a million men might be usefully employed in soil conservation activities." Bennett declared (hat because of gullying, tributaries of all streams in affected areas are seasonally filled with an abnormal ·run of rushing waters. "Erosion is caused by the accelerated runoff following removal of the natural cover," he declared. "Runoff, in turn, is speeded up when the absorptive topsoil is washed down to unabsorptive top-* H. BENNETT soil.'In other words, erosion and runoft are complementary activities, one speeding up the other in a vicious circle of flood water and destroyed land. . · Cilcs Flood Damages. ."Wo are asking our rivers to carry, over a short period, more water than they were created to carry," Bennett said. "Damage by the, dual process (erosion and runoff) is,spreading faster than control measures are being applied. "The mid-winter deluge which has just swept down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers at a cost of hundreds of lives, terrible suffering and property damage amounting tc hundreds of millions of dollars, has broken all-time records for volume, height and destructiveness." "Surely we cannot afford to take any chances with the safety of this indispensible, irreplacable resource," he said. "When we consider thai three-fourths of the nation's agricultural land is now eroding or is susceptible to erosion, under careless cultivation 'or razing, and further consider that, along with such depletion of the soil, more and more rainfall is discharged into streams to increase the hazard of floods, it eems appropriate to speculate somewhat freely with respect to the possibilities of utilizing more of the unemployed in soil and water conservation." Work Highly Useful. "We now have had in all parts of the country enough experience vith large numbers of CCC and VPA men engaged in this task to how that highly useful work can )e accomplished. Every stroke of abor expended in this field adds vealth to the nation. "Perhaps without any vast expense we could usefully employ a nillion men and later even greater numbers, doing just this kind of work. I have thought of the possibility of utilizing the time of unemployed people in a kind of ast outdoor school--a - school for he building of mind, body and pirit through the work of a great undertaking in this branch of na- ional disease." Paul Weaver, professor ot phil- ispphy and director of religious education at Stephens college, Columbia, Mo., in an address, 'Sight Without Eyes," at a home economics meeting Thursday afternoon said: People Are Bewildered. TTor almost a decade the ma- ority o£ peop: s in the world have nad a profound sense of bewilderment. The greatest need for finding our way out of this contemporary confusion is the need for wise and elective leadership." "We are all of us products of an environment that has done everything in its power to dull the power of imagination," Mr. Weaver declared. "Leaders must possess the capacity to find the unusual and dramatic so that they ca.n capture the support of people for their ideas. Without support enthusiasm and unity, ideas become powerless." R.

Priced from 50c to $3.00 CASEY DRUG CO. 335 South Federal Phone 291 Meat board, Chicago, said in a talk on "The Importance of'Meat in. the Nation's Diet," that "the problem of finding a mai'ket for the state's surplus meat concerns not only those engaged in the livestock and meat industry but every ether Iowa citizen." More Meat Used. Ninety per cent of Iowa's pork and 79 per cent of Iowa's beef is consumed out of the slate, he declared. Pollock described meat as one of the most essential, foods and cited ·experiments to show the superior growth of animals and humans fed meat in addition to vegetables and fruits. But even persons on diets should eat meat, he declared, as it is a good source of quality protein which keeps the body in balance. It makes the reducing diet more interesting .and more palatable and leaves the eaters really satisfied with the meals. Experiments have shown that persons can reduce and still keep meat in the diet, he declared. Consumption of meat is actually increasing, he said, despite the competition of other foods. IOWA LEGISLATOR IS GOADED INTO SAYING "PUBLIC BE DAMNED" DES MOINES, (JP)--Represen- :ative Charles W. Nelson (R) of Packwood, goaded Representative Thomas Su'mpson (D) of Ana- nosa into declaring, "the public damned" on the house floor Wednesday. Nelson rose to ask Stimpson, chairman of the committee deciding the contest for the Clinton county seat filed by Milton Peaco, a democrat, against William N. Judd, the republican sealed, why the committee hadn't reported. Stimpson explained that he was waiting for certified copies of the proceedings. Nelson commented that it seemed like the committee was taking plenty of time. Stimpson replied that the committee had counted paper ballots cast in 37 precincls and had worked steadily for two weeks. "This contest has been nothing but a headache to me," declared Stimpson. "If you thing anyone's lain down on the job you ought to apologize." "But what will the public think at this delay?" asked Nelson. "The public be damned," Stimpson exploded. "We worked just as hard as we could. Representative B. B. Hickenlooper (R) of Cedar Rapids interposed to ask Stimpson with a chuckle:. "Are you attempting to reassert that famous statement about the 'public be damned?' " Speaker Foster intervened and Stimpson laler explained the committee would file its report just as soon as possible.
