Gleason Mattoon speak tuesday on a some aspects of Mattoon Well known horticultural expert and writer pointed out that the word a a conservation is no longer associated Only with preservation of Woodland resources but with the Wise use of water resources soil Fertility and the preservation of Roadside Trees and wild Flowers. Conservation Mattoon continued was originally considered preservation but gradually came to be recognized As Wise use. No longer Are the resources of state and Federal forests locked up but Public enthusiasm for their use has brought new problems. As increasing numbers make use of Public picnic areas for instance these multitudes of people have so compacted the soil and slowed up rain penetration that Trees have died and picnic areas have had to be moved. The real problem now that the Public uses forests in such Large numbers is to locate facilities in enlarged recreation the Pownal Vera Langlais 823-7716 scoutmaster and mrs. Rolland Roy and committeeman and mrs. William Frost of troop 47 Are planning to attend a dinner meeting tonight at Camp Plymouth Tyson when plans will be outlined for a prospective merger of Green Mountain and Calvin Coolidge councils. Norman Dickinson of North Pownal is a patient at the mass. Eye and ear infirmary in Boston where he underwent surgery last week. Pass review two scouts from Pownal troop 47 successfully passed a Board of review thursday night at St. Peters Church Bennington with Peter Roy achieving the rank of life scout and Alan Strobridge Star scout. Local committeemen reviewing the accomplishments of the candidates along with representatives from North Bennington troop 28 and Shaftsbury troop 31, were Marcel Langlais and Lyle Grusendorf. A new ruling Calls for a Board of review to be held once a month in Bennington for scouts from All area troops seeking advanced ranks. The advancement in rank of the two local scouts will be officially recognized at a court of Honor Here in August. Areas so the concentration of people is greatly reduced. A the problem of water penetration of Forest soils in picnic areas brings to mind a conservation necessity in your Yard and mine a Mattoon said. A we Are in the fourth year of a drought. Because of increasing population and a decrease in pure water conservation or Wise use is necessary. The drier the soil is the More difficult it is for rain to seep into this is due to a property of water Many persons give Little thought to the speaker explained. A if the surface tension of a drop of water is great enough to prevent the drop from disintegrating into several smaller drops it cannot sink into a soil whose air spaces Are smaller than the drop of to overcome this difficulty Mattoon recommended the use of a detergent like a wetting agent available at Garden stores. When mixed with water the chemical destroys the surface tension of each drop of water making it possible for the water to move readily through soil whether it is wet or dry. Such a chemical is of special value when a Lawn becomes a problem. A quart will treat about 4,000 Square feet and after such treatment water from a Hose or Shower will be quickly absorbed instead of running off. On the subject of soil Fertility Mattoon urged every Home owner to establish a compost pile. Not Long ago he said it was possible to buy Large quantities of barnyard manure inexpensively but today it is in the same Price class As Gold. A a in a not advocating that every backyard Gardener keep a cow or a Goat a said Mattoon a a but there is a Way in which every Home owner can produce sufficient humus for his needs without dipping into capital. What do you do with grass clippings with weeds Carrot tops and beet tops pea vines and bean vines after the crop is harvested with Frost killed Squash and pumpkin vines Garden annuals and perennials after they have finished Active growth with the leaves and twigs of Trees and shrubs All such material can be converted into a partially decayed vegetable matter which is humus an absolute essential in the maintenance of soil Structure and for the growth and multiplication of Micro organisms necessary for biochemical soil turning to the use of pesticides Mattoon urged a More careful and intelligent use of these sometimes lethal chemicals. He stressed the need for the people Selling them to have a real knowledge of the products they Are handling. He also urged that greater discretion be used in the application of Weedkiller to our roadsides where Many attractive and pleasing assortments of wild plants have been destroyed and noxious weeds encouraged to take Over.
