Strip cropping, one of the est and most economical methods of checking erosion y water, also is valuable in lecking wind erosion in vreat- rn areas. "Whether planted-on contour lines or at right angles to pre- ailing winds, strips of sweet over, alfalfa, sorghum, sudan rass, or sunflowers not only top soil that starts to blow, ut also break the wind as it sweeps across the field. It is mall soil particles carried by high wind that produce the .coming effect known as wind rosion. Strip cropping stops rifting soil in the same way as fences and we«d clumps. Another advantage of strip ropping is that strips may he lifted.from year to year. The op growth and roots are lowed under and add humus o the soil. This is one or the jest preventives of "blowing." oil with a good content of organic matter is much less like- y to blow than soil cultivated year after year until most of he humus disappears.

With native trees being cut own with little or no effort eing made at replanting, lere is beginning to develop consciousness that something hould be done to stimulate the evelopment of tree planting. This year there will be held wo demonstrations for the :anting of trees for wind- reaks and woodlots on the erms of Fred Stover and Wilam McArthur. Other requests for demon- orations have been received, ut Iowa State college author- es will only be able to hold wo in Cerro Cordo county season. As now planned wo more will be held next ear. The demonstrations will show ow the fast and slow growing rees should be planted to ob- ain the most effective ivind- reak and also for woodlot pur- Mses. Farm and conservation leacl- rs are becoming more and -.ore alarmed a.t the rapid rate t which trees are being cut own. The recent flood in the east, they pointed out, is the out- ome of wanton cutting of rees without carrying on the eplanting activities that c!iar- cterize other countries.
