NDVolersIo hci on Three Ballot Measures Petitions calling for change of tenure of most county offices l~st out this week for lack of sufficient signatures. Secretary of State Ben Meier reports Deadline for filing petitions for amendments passed Monday. North Dakota voters will pass or two referred measures and an am- mendment to the state constitution Nox. 8th in the general election. The two re[erred measures are the congressional districting bill and the so-called third brakeman's law.! The constltuuonal amendment asks that the name of North Da-- kota Agricultural College be chang- ed to North Dakota State Univer- sity of Agricultural and Applied Science. The congressional districting law was passed by the 1959 legislature and provides for division of the state into two congressional districCs from which U. S. representatives would with a 1919 provision that a third be elected. They are el~dted at large nOW.

GRASS HEALS STEEP FARM LAND EROSION We wish we had put those steep slopes into grass a long time ago, say Emmanuel and Myron Erickson of Cooperstown, a father-son part- nership team. Their rolling land was giving them plenty of trouble with water erosion. Farming the steep slopes had created deep gullies. Now, they have stopped farming their steep slopes, worked the gullies shut and seeded them to grass. The Ericksons also had a prob- lem with lack of water storage for their pasture. To remedy this, they built a stock dam to serve as a water reservoir. With grass legume rota- tions and the use of fertilizer, they have increased the pasture produc- tivity a great deal on their 440-acre farm located southeast of Coopers- town. "We never realized before what a pasture could do. when handled properly," they say. Now, where weeds and poor crops grew before, they have a good pasture. This has enabled him to build up a herd of 75 Hereford cattle, many of them purebred. Commercial fertilizer makes crops grow better, makes farming more profitable, helps assure an abun- dance of high quality foods at low cost to consumers, and helps build up and conserve the soil. KHRUSHCHEV SEr~ WORLD BEHIND COMMUNISM--Soviet Pre- mier NikRa S. Khrushchev speaks to a final session of the Ru- martian Workers (Communist) Party in Bucharest before he returned to Moscow. Khrushchev's theme at the meeting of East European Communist leaders was coexistence.
