Kelley SCS Technician leviews have just been com- pleted of the current field trials in the Southwest SPO- lane Soil and Waer Omser- ration district. Active trials include a var- iety cOalariso of Ladak, No- mad and Rambler alaga on the John Babb arm south of Cheney. The trial is in is first year ,and few variations can be seen. Both the Ram,bler and Nomad are showing prostrate or creeping growth which is characteristic. Eddie Maughan e,stablished a tal of Lad'ak and Rambler alfalfa near Cheney in 1961. The site is typical meadow area, wet ir the center and droughty along the edges. Nei- ther of the alatfa varieties have made a good showing in the wet area but Rambler seems to be the weaker. Ladak stands more erect and seems to be out producing theStamb- lea" on the dryer sites also. A Dm'ar hard fescue trial was established with Walter Reimers, Four Mounds, in 1963. The soil is quite slallOw, sandy ,anti doughty and is the site of the Four Mounds little league ball park. The Durar, being sow to este,biSh is real- ly sh, eavJrg a res0rme in its third year. It :has a tremend- ous root system and survives wl trader rugged conditions. Its appearance indiated it will pvobabl7 take over the area in the next few years. Dtmar is a perennial .and van be elimin- inated easily with ".tillage. These trials are estabtis,hed in coogeratien with the Soil Conseratio Service, Plant Mterials Center in Pullman. Their purpose is to fie test new pllan,t releases in outlying communities. Records are kept on each trial as they ave re- viewed annuaIly.

Harder A most recent one involved the ballot stuhg by National Labor Relations Board. In view of the Supreme Court decision on state legislative reapportionment in voting, it is then difficult to understand this most mystifying of decisions. Under the labor laws, when a union shows some evidence that a substantial number of employees of any firm wish to! be represented by the union, and when some other union al- so claims the same support, the NLRB conducts an elec- tion. The NLRB also has the authority to devise the ballots. The case the Supreme Court ruled over involved a certain part of the employees of United Airlines. The question was whether they wanted to join one union, or a competing un- ion, or to oin no union at all. The ballot was designed to name both unions, but no pro- vision was made for those who National Federation of Independent Bullnu| Robak. Hazel and Maude Pow- ell called Saturday.
