HOWARD SPEAKS ?� AT MUSKOGEE Many Take Part in Soil Conservation .Program, Held at Muskogee; Tuesday..'''' ' ' MUSKOGEE, Dec. 4.-Representative citizens, farmers and, busine3 men were in attendance yesterday, at, the oil eroaion'c^lppcejhere at wfiicri .jail phrases;' of^tnetproblem were; discussed. Terracing,'* planting pasture grasses, drainage, control of roadways, and river transportation all came in for consideration. Among the speakers were those from the extension division of the Oklahoma A. & M. college, and adjoining countieB and from Muskogee. Awakening the "soil consciousness" of the people of the state was the theme of Trent. Trent declared that 9,000,000 acres or onfeVfourth.. of. the farm area of Oklahoma^ came, under ,'the direct administration*' bf the ' 'it* partment of interior, state land com- ' mission, and federal land bank* A | committee which had"b_ejn, f ormjulated. 1 a short time ago at'pj^OTg^i City 'under call of the Clarence "'Roberts and He college authorities consider a 'part,, of; their duty, lay,-with: working Wj^.th^.se..forceS; "Poor land carries poor people with it. They have no carpets on the floors, no window shades on the windows and no screens on the doors or windows, no clothing to speak of. When they come to town they have no money to spend-this is the result ot soil erosion,' Trent said. "The human race depends upon the soil-all business depends upon its productiveness." After noon luncheon with the Ki-wanis- club at Hotel Severs the after-non program was resumed with the following speakers: G. E. Martin, farm engineer or extension division of A.& M. colege, Dr. I. B. Oldham, Frank Haward, Stilwell, Adair county, Bruce Henderson, Fort Gibson; and A. C. Trumbo, Muskogee realtor, W. H. McPheeters of the Portland Cement Educational institute Frank Howard, prominent farmer of. Baron, made the following speech at ^the meeting: Erosion and Mortgages From 'actual obsevatiort and -exper-ience I have learned that :bouVerosion which means gradual destruction, or eating away of the soil, is in many � instances, the foundation or starting point for the placing of a mortgage on farm land. r" .. In the development of new land where erosion is -held in check thru the workings of nature, the land is generally productive enough to be self-supporting, and for that reason farmers bf early days had no need of placing .a mortgage on their, farms. The time is about here when.Banks, Loan Companies, arid �individuals; that loan money on farm land, wilL' have their viewers and appraisers report'on the condition of the land relative to the possibility' and^probajillity V. of erosion. In my opinion the safest and most economical method to avoid land erosion is to sew all sloping land, down to permanent pasture, after. getfinjif a; CONGRESSMAN HASTINGS jp GETS QUICK ACTION , 1 -'- ': The light and power plant, including the manual training shop, at the Sj- . quosrah Orphan.

The government can well afford to deal generous* ly with its orphan Indian wards. This school is doing a splendid work, is salvaging Indian children who have lost their parents, who are in great need of care and protection.
