Alber identifies Mystery farm The Mystery farm that appeared in the June 14, issue of the Leader has been indentified by the tenant Larry Alber of Fayette. -The 2-10 acre farm is located two miles south and one-half mile west of Fayette. Larry's father, Floyd Alber, purchased the farm about five years ago from Beryle Hall. Floyd Alber farms this farm and Larry farms 1GO acres on another farm. Larry and his wife Mary Kay were Married on April 2'2, 19G2. Larry is a member of the Upper Iowa University Science club and the Lutheran student group. He is a second semester senior ;\t U. I. U. Soil, water conservation Practices increase 10 per cent Honored on birthday MAYNAHD — Mrs. Clara Winkler was honored Sunday, June 3, when 49 relatives gathered at the Community hall to assist in celebrating her 84th birthday .anniversary. Among those present were her two sons. Max, Arlington; George, Oelwein; her daughter, Mrs. Henry Kappmeyer; Maynard, and her only brothel', Will Adams, Oelwein; four grandsons and two great grandchildren. Other present were from Sumner, Oran and Central City. Last year over 22.000 Iowa farm ers applied soil and water conservation practices to their land. According to Frank II. Mendell. state conservationist of the United States Soil Conservaion Service, this is a II) per cent increase over the proceeding year. Mendell attributes much of this increase to a greater awareness of fanner's to the soil and water con- seivatimi needs nf their land and l> the cost sharing incentive provided l>y the Agricultural Conservation program. Then too, says Mendell, many farmers relicing land under the feed grain program took advantage of this retirement period to install conservation practices. Soil Conservation Service technicians provided technical assistance to 27,001) soil conservation district cooperators and 11,000 other farmers in 1!)G1. More; than 4 0(10 farmers became new cooperators with districts. Mendell says over 3,300 farmer-district eooperators developed complete conservation plans for the use and treatment of their land in 1961. This brings the current total to over 75,000 f,i ni'.vs cooperating with their local county soil conservation dist let on over 13,8C,0.000 acres of land. Of these, 53,000 cooperators have developed basic conservation plans on about 9,400,000 acre:!. Farm drainage operations show the highest increase of any of the conservation practices. The past year drainage improvements were made on 105,000 acres-a 97 pin- cent increase. This makes a total to date exceeding 2,000,000 acres. Nearly all erosion control practices over the proceeding year except which decreased 14 per cent. Practices showing significant increases were: Contour farming 18 per cent, stripcrooping 7 per cent, grassed waterways 20 per cent, and erosion control structures 15 per cent. This brings the total application of these practices to Iowa farms since conservation fanning began to: contour farming 3,500,000 acres, stripcropping 455,000 acres, terraces 42,000 miles, grassed waterways and outlets 117,000 acres, and diversion construction 3,111 miles. A total of 7,900 erosion control structures have been built. Progress in other conservation practices areas during 1961 is as follows: conservation cropping systems, 443,000 acres, farrnste-id windb'eaks 357 acres tree plantin . 1,700 a'.rn s, v.'codlanl imp ov.-ment ::,590 acres, wildlife aiea treat rant 5 2'<4 ar r es, pasture improvement 27 948 acres, and pasture ,) .mting 17,390 acres.
