Without each of these the following may occur: a. Vital plant nutrients become "locked" in the soil structure. b. Herbicides are not activated and poor grass and weed control result. c. The soil structure becomes hard, arid and lifeless due to the lack of micro-organisms. TO FULLFILL YOUR CROP PRODUCTION NEEDS MERELY FOLLOW THIS OUTLINE: RAIN 1. Pay the Preacher more 2.

Spring fire season months of March, April, and May are months of high fire danger. Extremely dangerous weatberi conditions for burning can result in a short period of time even after a rain. Each year during the "spring clean up months", many wild fires are cuased by careless burning. We can prevent most of these fires by following a few rules of safe burning: 1. obey the state burning laws; 2. clean a "safety strip" free of material that will burn around the area you plan to burn; 3. don't burn on windy days; 4. have tools and help on the Soft Conservation office in Charles Town and Dwight Stinson, chief Ranger and the Supt. of the Harpers Ferry National Park are also forest fire wardens.
