They include the advisability of buying land now rented: selling land which might not be suitable for farming; adequate appropriations for drainage and consideration of the grain storage problem on state-owned farms. More Statehouse Visitors Mrs. Hazel Alford, who is in charge of the information desk at the statehouse is convinced that more people are travelling this year. There have been more visitors to the statehouse this summer than any summer in recent years. Mrs, Alford counted 500 visitors in one hour one day this summer and estimated that more than 10,000 persons walked through the capitol corridors thae day. She says that —not including state fair week when most of the visitors were Iowans—the number of out-of-state callers exceed those from the Hawkeye State. Seek More Erosion Funds The state conservation commission, which started a soil erosion control program in state lake watersheds last year, is expected to ask for more funds for the program in its biennial askings to the legislature. The commission .goal is to see that good conservation farming practices are adopted in all watersheds feeding Iowa lakes. It has a dual purpose: to encourage better farming operations and to protect lakes from being ruined by silting. V. W. Flickinger; chief of water and lands division, says that a! great deal of progress has been made in many sections but that the program is just well underway and that additional money will be needed to carry' on the program. The state soil conservation committee, the federal soil conservation service and local soil districts are coperating in the program. Watersheds of 11 of 17 artificial lakes were included in the program last year. Six of them will be included in the program nest year, five will be dropped and eight areas will be added.
