It and the contour and levelland plowing contests' are scheduled for Aug. 8. Mr. Bearae is secretary-treasurer of the Fulton County Soil Conservation District and has been interested in conservation many years. Our first soil and water conservation field day, which is a cooperative project of the district, Soil Conservation Service, ASC Service, Agricultural Extension Council, and Agricultural Extension, Service of the University of Illinois, was held on the Bearce farm about 10 years ago. While observing our site we got into quite a discussion of not only building grass waterways right but of the importance of maintaining them. Waterways, like buildings or machinery on the farm, require attention usually after they have been in service for several years. Sometimes silt builds up in the sod from adjoining runoff and cuts a gully on each side of it. This requires reshaping. A heavy rain may gouge out places in the waterway or trash change the follow of water to cut at the edge. Time to Plan This fall, however, is the time to plan for repairing and establishing new sod waterways. As we all know, well-shaped waterways make easier farming with no gullies to cross or farm around. Check with our soil conservationist, Keith Mueller, at the Soil Conservation District o/fice at 225 W. Washington St., Lewistown, for assistance in shaping and seeding your newly-established grass waterway. For financial assistance, contact the ASCS office at 200 N. Main St. in Lewistown. Dale Martin is the ASCS office manager. To get a new waterway off to a good start, be sure and fertilize it well. Applying eight to 10 tons of manure, or a complete fertilizer of 400 to 800 pounds per acre is recommended depending upon the fertility needs of the soil. A mulch of strawy materials also will help hold the sort and get a grass waterways ask at your better catch of grasses Grasses Suggested Grasses are recommended for the waterway as their fiberous roots and thick cover provide excellent control of soil erosion. It is also important to use plenty of seed. Tall fescue at 20 to 25 pounds, timothy at six to eight pounds, redtop at or bromegrass, Lincoln or aucheriback strains at 20 to 25 pounds per acre are suitable for Fulton County. On very wet soils 15 to 20 pounds of Reed canary grass will be more satisfactory. A nurse crop of one-half to one bushel of spring oats or three pounds of perennial rye grass per acre is suggested. A tile to drain the waterway rs also, recommended for most waterways.

(AP)A team of woman pilots from II linois has crossed the' finish line in the 17th Powder Puff Derby in a dead heat with two California contestants. The Illinois women who landed at Atla ntic cit y Monday, were Barbara E. Jenison of Paris and her co-pilot, Jean F. Hixon of Hoopeston. The two Illinois women arrived the same time as Doris E. Eddy and Treasure Zimmerman, both of Long Beach, Calif. Two other planes reached the finish line earlier. Another team of women' pilots, Dolores J. Adamson of Newman, 111., and Velma G. Hite of Lebanon, Mo., also completed the trip Monday night. They were in the 32nd plane to finish. The mere fact .that one completes the 2,500-mile cross-country air race first does not necessarily make' the aircraft the winner. The . standings are determined by a formula that takes into consideration the ground speed and a "par speed" handicap which is decided by the performance capability of the type of aircraft entered. The race began in Bakersfield, Calif., with 44 aircraft, including the two piloted by Illinoisans. farm adviser's office for Circular 810, "Save Soil With Grass Waterways." August and September are generally the best months in Fulton County to get waterways established. Look Out for Hungry Hoppers At the Banner Township meeting last week, several of the farmers present said that they were finding quite a few small grasshoppers. They are hatching in the fence rows and meadows. You can kill these hoppers rather easily now that they are still small. In none-crop areas, you can kill grasshoppers with two ounces of dicldrin or one and one-half pounds of toxaphene per acre. This is about one pint of 15.83 per cent dieklrin or one quart of 60 per cent toxaphene per aere. Use the above amount of chemical in the water that your sprayer puts on per acre. On hay crops or pastures, use sevin at three-fourths pound per acre where dairy cattle utilize it or livestock arc being fattened for slaughter. Malathion at one pound and dibrom at three- fourths pound and diazinon at one-half pound per acre may be used on the crops. Follow your manufacturer's instructions for applying these insecticides.

Listening to troubles all day long, he's probably \\x%% a bundle of nerve**'* By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) - Wait till next month is the cry in steel circles. This basic industry expects thee urrent drop in new orders to be reversed by mid- August. Shipments will be tied to the declining orders that came with the conclusion of a new labor pact. So shipments probably will continue fairly slow till Labor Day. But the new orders should be picking up before that, guaranteeing a sizable fall recovery. At least, this is the thinking among those steelmen who refuse to be disturbed by the drop from the admittedly somewhat feverish activity while labor negotiations were under way. Some of the heavy ordering in Kirkwoocl Group Sets Breakfast At Lakeside KIRKWOOD — The Woman's Society of Christian Service met Thursday. Mrs. Lorena Bryant and Mrs. Elizabeth Braselton were appointed to work with a committee of two appointed by the Mary Marthas on the spring tea committee. Mrs. Alma Stinemates and Mrs.' Margery Smith were appointed to serve with two from the Mary Marthas on the pie sale committee. The program was in charge of Mrs. Grace Byers and Mrs. Marjorie Smith, the topic being "Reports From Lands of Decision." The great need for schools, churches and missionary personnel was emphasized. A breakfast will be held at Young's Lake Aug. 1. This will be a joint meeting with the Mary Marthas and the Smithshire women will be guests. Mrs. Lorena Bryant, Mrs. Edith Wetander and Mrs. Sarah Akers were in charge of the coffee hour. Tunic Team PRINTED PATTERN late spring also might be traced to fear that a rail strike might disrupt shipments. Strike Somehow Avoided A drop in new orders was expected with removal of anv threat of a steel strike and spreading belief that a rail strike would be avoided somehow. And, steel men say, new orders have held up better than many expected. Certain steel products are still in strong demand. Steel consumption is running well ahead of year ago figures. This would mean that consumer stocks Would be used up fairly fast and customers would be back with new orders much sooner than thev were in 1962 when similar strike hedge ordering gave the industrv an unusuallv fat period followed by an unusually lean one. Optimism also is fed by good earnings during the last three months while production was climbing and when the new cost- cutting equipment was coming into use. A side line to this is that the new equipment and steel-makine methods means that the break even noint has been Inwomd The companies can go through the summer slack spe'I with less strain on the profit and loss ledger. And most of the rise in production costs involved in the new labor, pact won't come into effect until next year. tour July 27 and county demonstration contest July !
