Orville Lacey 378-3231 What ls meant by conservation? It is the protection and wise use at our natural resources; tt also means guarding our supplies of soil, water, forests, and wild life so that they can be used wisely by the people o f the earth. The supply of most of our r e ­ sources ls limited and can easily be destroyed. Today man needs not only to protect today's r e ­ sources but also his resources for the next generation; and tom ­ orrow there will be m o re and m ore people to use these r e ­ sources. The first kind of resources to consider ls soil conservation. Most food comes from Ihe soil. Theadore Roosevelt once said \when soil ls gone, man must go .\ The fertile top layef of soil on the earth ls only tncjhes deep. It lakes hundreds of ye^rs to produce an inch of top soli, which rain can wash away In a short time.

They plow across a slope In­ stead of up and down. They plant trees or g r a s s e s o r build dam s lo maintain the soil. Water ls essential for life. Man and animals and crops need water to live. Water can b e kept on the land by planting trees and grass and by building dam s. People In most cities get their water from lakes and r iv e r s . C ities like Denver get their water sup­ ply from the mountains. When sewage and garbage are dumped Into the wafers, the water ls unfit to use. Industry Is building a n tl- pollutlon p lants to make the water safe. New York state Is helping to finance som e of these plants. Mills Uke the Georgia-Pacific plant ln Lyons Falls are buUdlng plants of thts type. The village of DUllon ln Co­ lorado has been completely raised fn order to pro­ vide a basin to catch the snow from the mountains to help pro­ vide water for the city of Den­ ver. Even this is hardly enough. The village of Vail, Colorado has been fighting Denver’s attem pt to tap their w a te r supply also. Forest conservation i s closely connected to soil conservation. T rees atop the erosion of ‘soil and furnish homes for wild ani­ m als and p laces of recreation for man. The many national parks furnish camping s ites and vaca­ tion lands for the people of a state. In tbe Adlrondacks the many camping sites are p rotected by trees. However, lumbering ln New York state has been over extended. Some of our forest land has been wasted because men have sometimes cut trees without planting new ones to take their place. In Colorado, along Route 70 f o r e s t f ir e s completely destroyed acres at good forest land. Lumbermen are learn­ ing to replant and not to cut down young trees. Id some s tates perm ission has lo be obtained from the F o rest Rangers to dig a tree and payment has to be made. Wild anim als play an Impor­ tant role In the balimce of life. B irds help control Insects. Tbe Bald Eagle has been alm o st ex­ term inated by sheep men who accuse them o fklU lngthelrsheep. Lett alone, Ihe Bald Eagle helped preserve the balance of nature. Hunters have killed wild anim als. The open season on does, many wild life experts claim , has a c ­ counted for few er deer in the Adlrondacks the past few sea­ sons. The harsh winters have also depleted the sto r e of deer. Draining lakes and swamps has destroyed ihe nesting places of birds. Along the new rood to Utica swamps hare been left In­ tact to provide a nesting place for birds. Some conservation­ ists believe nature, wUi main­ tain a balance If not Interfered with. But fish hatcheries In New York sta te such a s the one n e a r Rome help to restock our stream s . These are fust a few of tbe things thst are being done to destroy o r to conserve our na­ tural resources. Each genera­ tion must plan for the next so that the suppUes of natural re­ sources wUi hold out tor the people to come. - Charles Law L o t t e r y W i n n e r Victoria M.
