Jessen SCS Technician Spring appears to be 'here, judging by the weather we've been having for the past week er so. Everyone is anx'mus to get out the machinery and get active in the fields again. Spring tage will start in the next few weeks, if .this weather holds. The tilIage practices ,used, are imvortart to accomplish the desired goal. Doing the right operation at the right time will have a long-: er lasting effect, and will cut down the number of times over the field. Over-tillage will 1,cave the gound open for seris trou- ble. The soil will be worked l too fine, ,a.llowg it to become! dry and easily blo dung! the summer. If summefllow is over-worked, it will ,be lef.t very fine through the winter and will force the winter and: spring precipitation to run off, rather than penetrate. By looking ,over the comRry side ri,ght now, we ,have evi- denrce of the fields that eld the moisture ,and didn't erode.

TO THE EDITOR FAVORS INCREASE IN TAX ON BEER Dear Ecllter, A note ,of interest to our gov- ernor in his tax dilemma might [ be tire shocking fact that the t iraa'el tax on beer has not been I increased in this state in the I 30 years that have el,apsed[ since it was establs,hed in 1933 at $1.00 per ba,reI. The ,above, coupled with the! reality that the state of Wash- ington eolieets the mere pit- I tnce of five cornets per barrel oq all beer shipped out of the state, should be of concern to I all .of us in light of the in- crease on every other eanceiv-: able tax over the same 30 bear period. Why should we the people! o Washingto,n permit this in- crease of all taxes excep,t beer? The product, beer, con- tributes ermrmously to the higher taxes we pay for polic- ing, courts, detention faeildties and welfare services. A ration- wide survey reveals that some states have increased their beer taxes as much as 700 per cen.t during the last 30 years. We can go right on pay- ing the beer industry's taxes far them, or we shall write to @overn, or Evans and our d'is. triet state rreprese ,tatives pointing out the potentia,ls in esablishing a x base which ebes each seffment of the economy to pay its fair share.
