The 4-H boys ate and slept at the hotel during the 2 day training period, which was the first of its type in the state. It is- the planning period for the year ahead for the boys of .this group. Forestry Is Urged for Poor Soils Increasing the -usefulness" of poorer Iowa soil through a broad reforestation program has been recommended by a special Iowa State college committee on post ward development and conservation of resources. The reforestation w9rk, suggested for completion in 15 to 25 years, Is expected, in addition to building up forest areas in- regions of poorer soil, to stabilize community activities and develop a permanent forest industry to fit in with Iowa's broad agricultural program. The measure, which would be carried out with the assistance of state and federal funds, is not set up as.a "cure-all" for Iowa's land problems. However, the committee believes H gives promise as one of the most important methods to use on the poorer classes of soils. Expected benefits i n c l u d e production of a paying crop of timber trees; getting idle land back into production; preventing erosion of the soil as well as building up fertility; furnishing jobs for the community -- both for planting the trees and protecting, and caring for them during growth -- and producing an income from land which previ- ously has not been able to pay taxes. Iowa now has 2% million acres in timber. In addition, approximately 1% million acres which have been used for agricultural purposes are now in such a depleted condition that using them for timber production is probably the most profit- able. , Heavy grazing in the farm woodlot is considered one of the most serious problems to be met in the forestry program. About 90 to 95 per cent of Iowa woodlands are grazed at least some, but this practice must be curtailed if satisfactory, returns to the farmers are to be expected.
