C. Jobson, county farm agent, 1320 Avenue Q and no questions asked. With a rush of business in running lines for terracing, Jobson said Monday, only one of the five levels owned by the county is available. Jobson has had to borrow a level from time to time, when two are needed the same day. "Levels were loaned to farmers and I guess they in turn let some one else have them, until we have lost complete track of them." Jobson explained. "We need these very much now, have many calls every day for them. If those who have a county level will return them to this office, we will appreciate it very, very much. They are badly needed now and time is getting short for running lines before spring plowing."
