It's on the Blood Indian use as soil conservation plots. Strip farming is largely the neighbor's land and his land starts blowing too. Its serve's "big lease" will be almost as useless to the white Reserve. Indians don't farm it, they lease these lands to ignored. And when the wind blows, the good land blows a fearsome thing. If it keeps up, the Blood Indian Re- farmers as it is to its rightful owners now. farmers. The fields are huge, too big to be of any with it.
