Grasshoppers Invade Area in Drought Bt TMI ASSOCIATED PRESS Massive grasshopper invasions today posed an added threat to the northern Great Plains, already in the grip of a devast ing drought which has brought scores of counties under federal disaster programs. The new menace came as temperatures again in the 90s continued to sear Vast acreages in five stales and three Canadian provinces. Unseasonable summer fires on the usually verdant prairie and in wooded county at its northern fringes still were casting heavy smoke palls. From Helena, Mont., came federal and state reports that grasshoppers have infested an estimated million acres in Montana, plus other large Wyoming areas. At Williston in northwestern North Dakota, firefighters said a "dark wall" of large hoppers skimmed ahead of a prairie blaze which roared across 5,000 acres late Thursday before burning itself out at the banks of the Little Missouri River. Firemen from five towns, aided by 1,000 volunteer farmers and oil workers kept the fire from invading inhabited territory. The blaze raged as the final two of North Dakota's 53 counties were declared disaster country. "This is very serious because it's the Great Plains breadbasket that's going," said Norris Ellertson, regional director for Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation. After a personal survey and reports from field men, Ellertson said Thursday night at Bismarck, N. D., that he was recommending addition of 30 more counties in Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota to the disaster category. These included Montana's 20 Easternmost counties, 12 in western South Dakota and G in northeast Wyoming. If approved in Washington, these would bring to ill the counties eligible for emergency aid in Minnesota, Norlh and South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. In Otlawa, the Canadian government mapped emergency measures to save dairy and breeding stock in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, where up to 75 per cent of grain land was reported in jeopardy.
