CONSERVATION PROGRAM ; HELPED TRAILL FAMER Poor internal and external drain- age, low soil fertility and wind ere- sion were cutting productivity on Gilman Strand's 640 acre farm near i Portland. Strand tackled his wind erosion problem with pattern type tree plantings, stubble ~nulch and crop residue utilization Drainage d~tches, and a conserva- tion crop rotation with alfalfa to open up the soil, has helped solve his drainage problems. Reclamation officials and state leaders will meet Feb. 4 in Bis- marck to discuss ways of obtaining approval of the Garrison diversion project. The federal budget bureau said last week it could not recommend the project bu said it had no ob- jection to the project going before Congress Schedu4ed about 4:15 p. m. Feb. 4 in the Capitol will be a pt~blic meeting of the governor's coor- dinating committee, a nonpartisan group of state leaders, i On hand to explain where the project now stands and what courses are open will be Fred G. Aandahl, assistant secretary of interior. The interior department is the one ~t~ich will send the Congress in a few weeks a favorable report on the few hours a dinner planned that diversion project The meeting will precede by a night for Bruce Johnson, North Dakota projects manager for the bureau of reclamation. Johnson is in charge of studies and planning for the project and has been a vig- orous spokesman in its favor. Expected for the session, beside Aandahl, are Reps. Quentin N. Bur- dick (D-D) and Don L. Short (R- ND) and Sens. Milton R. Young (R- ND) and Norman Brunsdale (R- ND). Gov. John E. Davis called the meeting of his coordinating com- mittee but said it will be open to all persons interested in ~he project. Burdiek Saturday wired .Davis Speaker Assails Post Office "The U. S. Post Office department should handle mail, period," the Rev Carl A. Storm, minister of the First Unitarian Society of Minn- eapolis, declared Friday night in a talk on unwarranted censorship, de- livered before the NDAC chapter of American Association of University Professors. Storm challenged Postmaster Gen- eral Summerfield's attempts to con- trol the flow of allegedly porno- graphic material through the mails. He said the differentiation between filth and art is a task that must not be delegated to post office de- partment censors. The minister cited findings of a number of reseach investigators tending to show that reading or viewing of pornographic material has little if any effect in stmula- ting juvenile delinquency or sex deviation. Complete control would necessitate removal of male and female from the earth, he said. If the sponsors of censorship pre- vailed, he said, one of the books that would have to be censored would be the Bible. He labeled the best seller "Peyton Place" as trash but referred to "Lady Chatterly's Lover" as a work of art because of the overriding theme. Hospital Group Names Secretary Harvey C.

The little orange tabs are still available without penalty charges, which begin mounting up in Feb- ruary at the rate of ten cents a day. (A tab in time saves a dime.) It is generally understood that strict enforcement by highway pa- trolmen will not begin until the first of February. An informal check on Bismarck streets this week indicated that about a fourth of the cars still sport last year's license tabs. The license fee is paid by North Dakotans in lieu of personal pro- perty taxes on cars and trucks. It amounts to a tax for the privilege of using pt~blic highways. The money is used by the state and counties to build new roads. The motor vehicle rogistrar's of- fice has processed about 215,000 re- newals and marl is still pouring in. Last year, 227,000 passenger cars and 107,000 trucks were registered. The number registered for 1960 is higher than it appears, accord- ing to Registrar A. N.

EARLY BIRDS GET TAX REFUNDS FIRST Don't delay filling that federal income tax, return you just got in the mail--especially if you are one of the many millions who may have a tax refund coming. For, the sooner you file, the sooner internal revenue service can process your return and get your check to you. B. J- Rockwood. district director stated: "If we have to give your return a pro-refund audit and thus delay your refund check, we will inform you of that fact by letter But even in such cases, the earlier you file, the earlier we can get at your pre- refund audit." He also has a couple of tips for early tilers. One is to make sure you dont omit any essential infor.- mation in making out your return, such as your signature (and that of your spouse if it is a joint re- turn), your Form W-2 reporting your tax withholding, and your ad- dress as legible as you can print it. The other tip, Rockwood said, is not to writ for a few weeks .ask. ing where ;your red~d iS.

The grouu will provide a suitable memorial to the late Sen William Langer. Said Nordhougen: "The meny friends of Sen. Langer feel that the senator has a desire to have his people remember him with a port- rait in Statuary Hall in the nation's Capitol, and with a memorial in his home state." Committee are being formed in all of North Dakota's 53 counties "so that the type of memorial may be decided by everone,' Nordhougen added. Other temporary officers include A. J.

Lapp com- ments at his home in Alex- andria, Va that the Rus- sians' 'fantastic" new wea- pon mentioned by Premier Nikita Khrushchev might be an "orbital H-bomb" which could be stationed in space and launched or recalled at will. Lapp said ."a recallable bomb in orbit around the earth would have a tremend- ous impact upon the world as a psychological terror weapon." Lapp uses a play- ground ball and a small ob- ject to demonstrate.

Lloyd Redmond, of Sheldon, bag- ged an unusual 13-lined ground squirrel while h~mting near his home town. Instead of the normal color pattern of stripes, spot~ and brown coloration, Redmond's "strip- ed gopher" was all black. Melanlstie phases are considered more rare than albinism. When held in the light just right, the animal reveal- ed where stripes and spots should have been. Gust Sjoblom, ~f Bismarck, caught an albino northern pike while fish- ing through the ice at Sterling l~s- ervoir a couple of weeks later. The fish was in normal condition, 23-1t4 inches long and about two pounds in weigl~t. But it was all white, with a red-pink tint to the fins. Both trophies were kept to be mounted. Two species of tapeworms com. monly spend their adult lives in sheep in North Dakota, according to Dr. Myron F. Andrews, asmstant veterin.a~an o~f the Agricurturm Experiment Station at NDAC. These are the common sheep tapw'orm and the fringed tapeworm. The common sheep tapeworm ~, a tough one to fight, as sanitary measures to prevent the ir~fection of sheep with this parasite are al- most impossible. Reason for this i.~ a complex life e~cle which involve grass mites that are present in tre- mendous numbers. Along with grass or hay the sheep eat the mites. which contain the eggs of the tape. worm. The common tapeworm in- fests the small intestine of the sheep, and grows into an aduB worm that may reach four to five yards in length. The fringed tapeworm may be found in the bile ducts or pan- creatic ducts as well as i,n ~'~e small intestine, causing more dam- age to the sheep because ~f thin North Dakota is usually listed as being on the eastern boundary o~ the range of this pest in the United Statea Dr. Andrews points out that act- ual disease in lambs probably is caused by tapeworms ord~ when the worms are found in large num- bers. Treatment is not recommend- ed unless, the infection is abnormal- ly heavy. Two drugs that act by killip, g the tapeworva are lead arsenate ana cunic. Both are dangerous poisons and should ~e used only with ex- treme care. -q-h--
