officials expect the situa tion to approach the seriousness of the 19iOs when the socalled black blizzards lifted thou sands of tons of soil from the parched earth carried them to upperair circuits

Johnson believes Jandosvncrs should bear a part of the cost He wants them to pay up to 50 per cent of the cost of technical assistance provided by soil engineers in the installa tion of soil and water conserva tion projects In addition he wants to cut million from the S220 mil lion the federal government has been providing each year for farmers who carry out ap proved conservation practices Most
