No Change Expected
In Soil Work Procedure
Erosion control work now being
carried on by the local soil conser
vation service camp will continue
along much the same lines as for
merly, James Kistner, who recently
took over the superintendency of
the camp, said today.
"Active demand for structural
work to be undertaken with CCC
crews is in some cases preventing
our completing all of the work at
exactly the time it is requested,"
"We are doing priority work as it
is needed to enable cooperators to
put their erosion control farm plans
into operation. Some of this work is
best done at one season of the year,
some at another".
Considerable delay in the struc
tural part of the erosion control pro
gram can be elminiated if cooper
ators will have necessary material
on the site at the time work is to be
gin, he pointed out. If the construc
tion material specified to be fur
nished by the cooperator is on the
job, priority work on that farm will
be completed before moving the
crews to another farm.
Kistner expressed his enthusiasm
over progress of the soil and water
conservation program here, attrib
uting much of its success to excell
ent cooperation received from far
mers and people of the community.
"We hope that farmers and others
will continue to call at the-soil con
servation service camp or at County
Agent Joe Belanger's office for in
formation about the soil program,"
he said. "Future plans for contin
uance of CCC camp work here will
depend entirely upon the interest
shown and requests for the work in
