Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy DUST BOWLS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Dale age of Rhode for his What causes a dnit A disastrous dust bowl tran- sforms vast areas of fertile earth into a desolate lunar landscape. fields and fences are knee deep in blow- ing piles of useless dust. The air is choked with dust and clouds of dust curtain the sun and the sky. Crops and grass cannot survive and there is no water for the thirsting cattle. As the land becomes farmers and ranchers move elsewhere. The United States had had more than its share of dust bowls and many people fear that we have not seen the last of them. Some blame the some blame the ranchers and farmers. Both are partly right. Dust bowls are caused by long periods of drought or scanty along with high winds. They are made worse by poor land management that strips the soil of well-rooted vegetation. We can do nothing about seasonal droughts that strike large areas of the continent from time to time America's dust bowl is centered in and around the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma. In this region of the Great seasonal rains are spotty and undepen- dable and often the prevailing winds are strong and gusty. For several perhaps a there is enough rain to nourish miles and miles of healthy wheat and thriving ranchland. Then almost un- the rainfall diminishes year by year. Vegetation the huge bread and beef region becomes a dust eroded by drought and dryin winds America's worst dust bowl struck in the 1930s Another struck in the 1950s and another in the 1960s Before the farmers seasonal droughts are thought to have caused less severe dust bowls. Then the regions were covered with natural prairie grasses with short tops and long tangled roots. Winter and rain and this hardy vegetation anchored down the reducing erosion and blowing dust When the region was some of it became ranchland and some was plow- ed for annual wheat crops to feed a hungry world During the moist it became a huge rich bread and beef basket. Nobody noticed that crowded cattle stripped the earth or that the roots of annual cereal grains failed to anchor the toipsoil. Dry seasons began early in the 1930s Patches of bare soil crumbled to dust and dry winds shifted the dust from here to there. Soon vast areas of farmland were knee deep in blowing dust and eventually 50 million acres became a dust bowl. farmers prac- tice contour plowing to hold back erosion and ranchers keep smaller herds on their acreage. Modern cereal grains have stronger root systems and miles of trees have been planted to act as screens in the path of the prevailing winds. Droughts that cause dust bowls will come but good land management will prevent them from being so severe. QuMtloM Mtod by chfld- ran of Herald thould be malted to P.O. Box.
