Farmers who didn't get their seed in Febru- ary will be able to get it at a later date. Grass seed may be purchased at any seed dealer also. Seed purchased needs to be carefully checked to see that it meets specifications. Seed tags will tell the story. Pond sites in general are rather dry. We need to check them carefully before starting construction. Dry dirt Just won't pack solid enough to keep the dam from leaking, A drag line is in the county digging pits. A drag line is needed only if the pit site is wet. Many pit sites can be dug wlth a dozer or scraper. We can still get a lot of blowing, A chisel or lister fur- row about every rod will keep many fields from blowing. The lister furrow could be cultivat- ed shut later or without much reduction in wheat yield. Us- ually blowing starts in a very small area. Any kind of mulch will stop small areas from blowing. Many farmers are working mile fields. Residue on the sur- face does an outstanding job of holding soil moisture. Chis- eling opens up the soil so it will take moisture. If it stays dry the chiseling will let air into the soil and dry it out. From a practical basis we have to plan it is going to rain. DJsking th!s early is go- ing to make most of the resi- due rot away early in the year. This does away with needed residue on the soil surface by using fertilizer it will usually pay to keep all the residue possible on the surface. Under- cutting with sweeps is the best way to do this.

The girls wil enjoy (lay camp again this year from June 5-9. This year they will be using new camp kitchens made by Larry Dreiling and his Industrial Arts class. A great big thanks goes to this group, George Bechtold returned home the last of the week af- ter spending several days at Courtland helping his brother- in-law, Kenneth Killen, do some repair work and redecor- ate a house he recently pur- chased, MANKATO: A TOWN IN PROFILE Progress in improving the water situation in Mankato is gratifying. Layne-Western has discovered several areas, in the White Rock Valley, where imm the gravel is fairly good. They have completed their test drill- ing with over 40 test holes. Water is rather plentiful there but sustained production from each well is what we need. Within a year, our water re- quirements will be at least five times our present con- sumption. The contract for the storage tank, water line extensions and sewer extensions was awarded to the low bidder, Eve Incor- porated, of Hutchinson, Kans. for a sum of $211,069.75. Work is to begin on or about March 15 of this year. The storage reservoir and line to the pack tng plant will be begun im- mediately. The Johnson Adds tion will be serviced by both the water and sewer exten sions. The main users in that area will be the new school and hospital. The money used in this project is a $160,000,00 water revenue bond issue of September 1, 1966, and match- ing funds of $158,000.00 grant- ed by the F.H.A. The Federal government has been very concerned over dispersing of industry and the water re- sources involved. They are aware that smaller commun- ities nevd.~, financial assistance to develop resources needed for industrial growth. Had Mankato been able to finance the wlmle project out of any funds, it might have been able to obtain, the cost of produc- ing and sale of water would have been prohibitive, and would discourage industrial growth and civic development. In years past, water has been as free as the proverbial air we breathed, but neither water nor air will be too free in the future. Too much thoughtless contamination of both is reducing their access. ibility and increasing their costs. --Finlay Munro, NOTICE OF CAUCUS There will be a caucus of qualified electors belonging to the Conservative Party at the Correlt Hotel Dining Room on Thursday, March 23, 1967 at 7:30 P.
