Dominowski guest editorial regarding soil losses in Iowa . Bickert of Algona Iowa has recently written a detailed but rather unnoticed re Buttle to the statistics that have been published this past fall and Winter regarding soil loss in Iowa. These remarks Are representative of the entire Midwest. In addition the author has made several comments about the soil conservation service pcs and its past record. Because of the importance of the soil and the future work of pcs 1 am including some of Bickert s comments in Brief. Bickert served nine and one half years with the pcs before moving to Algona to farm. The following thoughts and ideas Are his. In the september 1976 Issue of wallaces Farmer in the nov. 7 Issue of the Des Moines Register Over radio Woi Ames on nov. .12, As Well As Over several other stations and in numerous publications the same figures and situations have been fed to the s examine some of them the claim is made by two prominent soil conservation people that Iowa is losing soil at an average rate of 13 tons and acre every year on unprotected sloping they explain that the state average for All soils is approximately 10 tons lost per acre per on what basis Are these statements made does the soil conservation service have any hard statistical and quantitative data to Back up these frightening figures or Are they really Only estimates were they conjured in part from an experimental plot in a room in an Ames agronomy building one prominent pcs employee stated that a Quantity of 10 tons per acre per year loss for an average Iowa acre calculates to be about 345 million tons per year for All of Iowa. A truly formidable figure we read further and Are told thirteen tons per acre is equivalent to 20 bushels an use a Pencil on that a minute and you la find that they Are telling us that a Bushel of soil weighs 1,300 pounds or about 41 pounds per quart. These Are truly impossible figures. The other soil conservation expert says in his signed article that thirteen tons an acre is the same As 230 bushels an that still leaves soil heavier than a Bushel of gravel and again another falsehood. Let s get to the nitty Gritty of what is really going on and the history of How we got to where we Are. The soil conservation service is not like god but instead it was a human creation by an act of Congress in 1936. Due to its 40 years of existence the billions of dollars spent for departmental budgets in addition to the methods by which the pcs has propagated itself into every Corner of the land. One should not have to search to find the beneficial results of its Handiwork however one must indeed search and Seldom find the results. Somehow along , the prime purpose of the pcs became lost and bogged Down in paperwork lethargy and aggressive perpetration of self. Because of the inferior standards pcs has perfected Over the years one comes to realize that a regional or local pcs employee is the pipe smoking Heg Lecter who Maneu vers you to push the revolving door that the two of you Are passing through. I say neglected because it has always seemed to me that pipe smoking and work do not go together. One is going to neglect either the pipe or the work. Today if you were to ask any local citizen in any one of the 100 soil conservation districts that Blanket the state of Iowa who Are your District personnel you d be Lucky if you found one in ten who could name a single one of the several people spending most of their time in the office. You Don t conserve soil in the office. The land is All outdoors. Dean e.

Being of dutch desent not a Point of shame or embarrassment by Dan Dykstra we Are considered backward and conservative. We Are considered isolated. We write More letters about rescinding the equal rights amendment than anybody else. We arise a lot of cattle but know Little of what is happening behind the scenes at the state Capitol. We Are tall dutch and solidly Republican. We play Good basketball but have poor our soil is Fertile but the land is Flat and emotionless. That is the View of the rest of Iowa toward this Corner of the state at least from wha i have picked up around the Iowa Capitol. The people at the statehouse have respect for the traditional ways of Northwest Iowa but disdain the stubbornness that sometimes accompanies that tradition. It is time that we stand up with and be counted there is nothing wrong with being backward and conservative if by backward it is meant slow to change just for the Sake of change is not a Good motto to follow. In fact the rest of the country seems to be changing Back to our life style. Look at the return to Home grown vegetables and homemade baked goods. For some of the country these Are and exciting experiments while we just continue in habits old and True. There is nothing wrong with being isolated is that isolation does t mask the world around us. Our isolation is in terms of Miles Miles from a Large metropolitan area Miles from Gangland wars and Miles from racial tension. Just because we Are isolated from these items does t mean we Don t acknowledge their existence. Isolationism and realism rarely go together. If we Are to walk that path it will take careful guidance to remain on the narrow path. There is nothing wrong with expressing opinions. Government is meant to obtain and live up to Justice. One such Way to carry out that task is to understand the needs and desire of the people. A concerned citizen writes letters while an unconcerned citizen complains to a neighbor. There is nothing wrong with raising cattle. It takes solid work and skill full management to feed livestock and earn a living at the same time. And believe you me the legislators eat their share of the processed product. Our knowledge lies in hard work not in political finesse. In other words there is an Innocency about the people of Northwest Iowa. To me its refreshing not a Handicap. There is nothing wrong with being tall dutch and solidly Republican.
