SALT FORK SOIL CONSERVATION DISTRICT NEWS TERRACES AND DIVERSIONS About a year ago Wilson Porter constructed terraces on the A. B. Smith farm two miles north of Wellington. He reports they have done a good job and he has lost no soil 1 or water in the last 12 months, Lynn Courtney of the Soil 'Conservation Service reported. Ralph Long also built terraces about the same time and is well rpleased with the job | they are doing. Several farmers are building terraces and diversions now. Included m this group are Earl Patterson, Windel Morgan, William O'Rear, James Sullivan, Wayne Martin, J. I. Morgan, Ira Morgan, Mrs. W. W. Sugg and J. B. Johnson. Some in this group are building parallel terraces. This eliminates point rows :between terraces, however a system of this type generally requires a vegetated outlet.
