What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Note — Owing to space limitations the following article, prepared for National Soil Con­ servation week, was held over from the last issue. It is stDl interesting and timely, by Boone Sparrow National Conservation Week, May- 6 tt> 12, is here, so I am going to tell you of the necessity of con­ servation training and a very ex­ cellent method of obtaining that training. This training is very vital to everyone, for conservation is everyone’s -business, as it has far-reaching effects upon the en­ tire populace of any community, not just the rancher and farmer. The amount of food produced, the multitudes of beautiful scenic Vonders found in countless na­ tional parks and forests, the quan­ tity of the water you drink, and the types of hunting, fishing and other outdoor sports you enjoy all depend upon that fundamental base, Conservation, and how well it is used as a tool to serve man by conserving the very environ­ ment about him. One of the best things being done in the way of Conservation education’ is State 4-H Conserva­ tion Camp. The four or five days of camp are filled with helpful tips on various phases of conser­ vation. Some topics included are: W i l d l i f e Management, Range Management and Range Conser­ vation, Soil Conservation, Forest Management, Safety or Human Conservation, and W a t e r s h e d Management. Naturally, there are also sidelights on numerous other sub-topics of conservation Used to reinforce the basic main topics. These constitute a fairly complete list of the choice of workshops at Conservation Camp. Here is a brief break-down of these pro­ grams as to content: 1. Wildlife Management—camp­ ers learn the types of wildlife found in Montana. They also learn how the Fish and Game Depart­ ment deals with these species in their natural habitats. They also learn the composition of the State cies of trees prevalent in the COACHES W ILL LINE vicinity of Conservation Camp and their most common uses as wood. Campers learn a few of the more simple lumbering tech­ niques, so they have a working knowledge of fundamental lum­ bering at their grasp. If the camp is located in a lumbering area, .a sawmill is toured to give campers an idea of the process of the cre­ ation of lumber from logs. 6. Safety — deals with proper swimming techniques, gun safety, first aid, and other safety hints of a highly diversified nature. Besides the wide array of work­ shops, Conservation Camps offer excellent * recreational facilities which round out any session of work. To be eligible for Conservation Camp, you must be a 4-H mem­ ber of the age of 14 or over and be interested in conservation. Anyone wishing to go should sub­ mit their 4-H record book to the County. Soil Conservation Super­ visory Board by a date in early July, which will be, specified by the Board.

Range Management or Range Conservation—campers learn the various details of the three fun­ damental segments of the 4-H Range Management program, as follows: A. Elant identification — this is the lowest level and the first step­ ping-stone of range management. Here campers learn the names of most of the important plants in the particular region where Con­ servation Camp is held. In this section also, they learn how to differentiate the members of the various tribes of the grass family. B. Forage Values — this section is aimed at fixing in mind which plants are desirable and are good forage, and which ones make poor grazing and low production. C. Range Production — deals with as to which groups of plants, ( i n v a d e r s , high-grade native plants, and low grade native plants), ; are producing well and are desired on rangeland.- It deals with stocking rates/ in A.U.M., or onth’s (how 1 much acreage needed for one ani­ mal for a month’s grazing).
