Losses will exceed the effects of the record-breaking drouth of 1954, may people say, because of the great amount soil erosion and damage to farm buildings and to homes.

This is undoubtedly the most serious aspect of the whole situation. Buildings can be replaced and repaired, more trees will eventually be grown, but a lot of the soil is gone forever. The fields were especially vulnerable, of course, because they had just recently been plowed and-plantejl. Many soil-saving structures, waterways and terraces that would handle normally heavy rains have been washed out. Farm income in the county will naturally be greatly reduced this year. Most of the state and the mid-west is similarly affected. Northeastern Illinois is reportedly harder hit than tills area, but the erosion is less there because of the flatter land.
