Frtdar. Feb. 18, 1144 5 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SOIL PROGRAM IS PROPOSED Would Employ 200,000 Men 2 Years After War ' Des Monies, (fP)-li. H. Bennett, chiel of the agriculture department's soil conservation service, proposed Friday a post-war soil conservation program he said would employ as many as 200,000 men for at least 2 years after the war. Bennett, in an address prepared for delivery before the 7t) national farm institute, said the workers could be either men def mobilized from the armed forces ; or released from war industries. ' The conservation chief was the ' first speaker on a 2-day program |i' at which agricultural experts and I leaders of farm groups were to j 1 discuss problems and opportunities [i of farmers. Nearly 1,000 persons i were expected to attend the major if sessions. Another the openin_ session was Oscar Heline of Marcus, president o£ the Farmers '.Grain Dealers Association of Iowa ,''wiio told the institute "we musl ^ascertain that the world in the ipost-war period will be as nearly '·adequately fed as is co-operative's ly possible.". · Bennett proposed putting 100,- '·' 000 men to work within 6 to 8 ' months after the war "to improve the productive efficiency o: American agriculture, and at the same time to protect, maintain anc .': perpetuate the nation's No. 1 na['. tural resource -- its productive soil." He declared the number of men who could be employed on '-. such work was limited "mainly bj the availability of proficient conservation technicians to guide and supervise the work." He estimated 3,000 new technicians could be trained the firs year and those experts, together with the present technical staf of the soil conservation service "would be able to utilize efficiently the labor-power of at leas 500,000 man-years during the firs 3 or 4 post-war years. "For at least 2 of these 3 to 4 years, it is believed that as many I. as ,200,000 men a year could bi ' efficiently employed." Bennett proposed that such a program include drainage of we farm lands, planting of sleep erod' ing lands with trees, shrubs, vines I' legumes and grasses; developmcn of farm water resources, construe tion ol stock water reservoirs |; flood control work, limestone fo: ,use on acid land, and varioui means designed to preserve lane and return worn-out ground to a productive basis.
