FROST .................................. PUBLISHER NATIONAL EDITORIAL " ImWl Conservation News CHENEY By Clarence A. Kelley SCS Technician Dewayne Beck, rarege spec- ialist, Soil Corservation Sex- vice, has been pro'vidirg assis- ta+nce to the Southwest Spo- kane d'trict througlout recent weeks, neck's puxImse is to as- sist toca,1 ranch owners ad op- erators in the telncal plan- ni, ng and application of good range programs. Gvogma Bros., south of Che- hey, is an example of ranc,h ope,rtors provided recent as- sistance. With the help of Beck, a conservation ran,ch plan was devel, oped with the Grogav.s. The first step was a review of the rarge to determine its pres- eJt status. Beck stated, "the Grogan ,layout hes some of the best grass ir Eastern Wahing- ton. For the most part it is a native Idaho fescue and bue- bureh wheatgras site which tmlke mary r!ges 'has not been overutilized, As a resu! there remains a stand of native grass in excellent condition." Other Improvements Grogan .have made water developments and provided cross fences to better manage their range. The consea'ation plan shoves the lton of some fencing to be changed nd the construction of new fences to bring a.bout better grazing dis. tribution. In the way of water devel, opments new springs and pnds are plaed. Grogans ,have had a practice of moving their salt gound,s which draws cttle into u'nder- grazed ,a'ea arid prevents over grazirg created by permanent salting sites. The phn lays out a good grazirg rotation wMch pro- rides for proper utilization of the grasses plus matenance a a continued or increased level of production. The Gro- guns aso phn to seed domesic grasses ,and legumes on paten- tim productive soil *sites based on their favomib}e experience on smAlar areas.

Harder was basically what Rep. Paul Rogers was talking about re- cently in the Congress on this question of continuing the multi-billion dollar American foreign give away programs. He stated quite emphatical- ly that in the latter part of 1964 over 200 ships flying flags of presumed allies were hauling supplies to North Vietnam. Of these ships 40% were Brit- ish, with the ships of Japan, Greece, Norway, Lebanon, It- aly, West Germany and Pana- ma also engaged in supplying the American enemy. He also pointed out these nations received some $29 bil- lion out of the American for- eign give away bonanza. Thus, there is quite a para- dox developed here. While the nation struggles to keep a foot- hold in southeast Asia for the free world, other members of the free world with large dele- gations at the United Nations, impply enemy seeking to drive free world out of Asia. sUeal rdetation of Indelmdmt - that American men are being killed in Vietnam. The Ameri- can embassy has been bombed with a loss of life. American ships have been attacked. But despite these facts, the "allies" of America supply the enemy. It would appear that their only alliance is with the State Dept. to extract money from the U. S taxpayers There is a peculiar quality to the indignation level of the American people. The entire government is involved in a situation whereby in a south- ern state a probably unneces- sary amount of force was used to enforce local law. Yet tn Vietnam Americans are killed by the enemy be- ing supplied by the ships of "friendly" nations. A youth is stabbed to death in a New York subway with no one attempting to stop the murder. This is an appalling blot on what some term the American civilization Yet is this as appalling ,as the killing of American men by an enemy supplied not only by supposedly friendly nations, but nations who also receive vast sums of American wealth, some of which is extracted from the parents, wives, fam- ilies of the slain men? Is this not a revival of the ancient English custom of the con- demned man paying a gratuity tO the hangman? Washington Bar Auoclation Watch Where You Are Going Whle dn,g her young home from ndrgarten, Mar- tha smashed into the rear of the car she had been follow- ing. She had onl, y turned her head for an instant to speak to her ,son, but in that knstant Ran, the .driver of the car ahead, sowed down, nd Mar- tha ran into "him. Ran sued Martha. He stated ttmt as he approached the in- tersection ,he saw a bts cam- inlg from his right at ,a high rate of speed. Fearing that the bus might n,ot stop, Ran slowed his car to about 10 miles per hour. He ws ,about to increase 'his speed again when Martha hit hm. Martha claimed that the ac- cident was rrot her fult. "There was no stop sign for the street we were drivmg (m," she .ponted ott. "If the bu,s was commg too fast and caused Ran to stow down, the acci- dent was the fault of the bus driver, nt me." Is lartha correct? Was the bus driver's cti, on the cause of the accident? Not in this case, said the court. The brake li,hts on Ron's car were working. There wou,l'd bare been no accident ff Marlha lad been watching where She was going. Ran ,had merely redu,eed his speed. Althou,gh he ws not jstified in assuming Eaat the bus was going to cross the in- tersection without stopping, he ws, as a cautios driver, justified i'n reducing h speed when .approacling theh,- inter- section. If the actions ,of the bus driver had been such that Ran would have been prompted to make ,a fast, unustm stop, the result *of the case might have been otherwise. However, in tihs case Rpn's ,actions, al- though particularly cautious, were net a stbstantial factor m causing the accident. Marth.a lost the case. (This column is written to in- form, not advise.
