Guarding the nation's soil "bank" That's another part of the farmer's job . . . safeguarding the thin skin of topsoil in which we grow all our food and natural fiber. Building that topsoil has taken millions of years. In banking terms it is our "account". We have an obligation to maintain our "balance" making up for "withdrawals" through equal "deposits". A few years ago we were drawing on our soil "account" at a shocking rate. But today, the forward-looking farmer guards his topsoil through progressive practices like contour farming. Farm cooperatives encourage soil conservation in the interest of the farmer's and the nation's future. They distribute machinery and supplies to help the farmer keep down the cost of his soil conservation program. To help him maintain soil fertility, they manufacture and distribute high quality fertilizers at reasonable prices. The farmer has many heavy responsibilities and complex problems which create widely different needs. Through his cooperative organizations the farmer is better able to meet them.

Cooperatives help more people share in America's progress Boost Old Age Assistance By 8 Percent Soon Public assistance recipients who receive monthly Old Age Assistance checks for the support and management of their own homes, will receive about an eight percent Increase in Afc.rch, according to an announcement of the State Board of Social Welfare.

An aged person living In his own home, and with no other Income, who have been receiving $97.00 per month will get $105.00 in March. An aged couple, each receiving $74.00, or a total of $148.00 monthly, will be Increased to $80.00 each, or a total of $160.00 The increases will affect approximately 70 percent of the State's Old Age Assistance recipients.

Of this 30 percent not included, about 22 percent are patients In licensed nursing homss where payments for their care are made directly to nursing home operators. Conservation Aid By Farmers Earns Praise Kossuth County farmers who have carried out wildlife conservation practices under the Agricultural Conservation Program have made a big contribution to Improved hunting and fishing opportunities in this area, according to Richard I. Anderson, Chairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee. More than 156 farmers In Kossuth County have established special food or cover plots for wildlife with AC P help since the wildlife phase of the program was first authorized In 1962. "By providing good nesting cover and extra food supplies, this kind of wildlife conservation can made a tremendous contribution in terms of Increased game supplies and improved hunting," the Chairman pointed out. Construction of ponds for wildlife, as well as those used as fish ponds, erosion control or to provide water for livestock, have real benefits for city sportsmen and farms alike. "The primary purpose of these ponds Is to slow water runoff, reduce erosion, and hold the water when It's needed," the Chairman explained. Thus In the process of conserving water, It is also possible to keep reserve supplies for livestock and still provide nesting and watering places for ducks and other wildlife.
