UNIVERSITY PROFS, IN

IMSPEOT THE SOILS AND PLANTS
Professors Interested In Conservation
Make Interesting 8tudles of
Conditions In Western
During the latter part of the summer
vacation four university professors,
Condra and Bengston of the economic
goology department, Pool of the bot
any department nnd Barker of the
astronomy department, spent several
days studying the Bandhllls region ot
Nebraska In the vicinity of Lakeside,
Mullen, Seneca and Halsey. The
studies wore made for the Nebraska
conservation' commission, under the
direction of tho chairman of that or
ganization, Dr. Condra. Tho special
object of this preliminary study wbb
to gain Information concerning a more
ecomonic utilization of the sandhill
region. A great deal of data wns
gathered relative to tho topography of
tho country and its origin, the lakes
and their utilization, tho dune sands
and alkali boIIb and nil other matters
studied to promote consorcatlon.
The snndhlll portion of the state has
thus far been studied very little. It
occupies about 18,000 squnro miles of
Nebraska land. It Is used very large
ly for grazing now. Tho vnlley lnnds
produce liny and pasturage. It Is be
lieved that as a result of the prelim
inary studies that tho native grasses
of this district may be Improved, giv
ing a larger return In animal food, ami
certain species can bo adapted to bet
ter hold In check tho drift sand.
These are followed In turn by other
incoming species which will produce
pasturage of the greatest value. It is
thought that a more careful manage
ment of the region will result In less
wind erosion, tho maintenance of a
thicker covering of grasB nnd a better
quality of pasturage than that which
StudleB carried on by members of
the conservation commission show
that- the soIIb vary greatly in the re
gion nnd are not all oqually well
adapted to tho production of grass,
hay and cereal crops. Professors from
various departments of the university
are now actively at work trying to
bring about a Bolutlon of Nebrnska't

of the sandhills. In this way they or.

party was made to tho north and

portion of the state not often visited

One day was spent at the Dismal
river forest reserve at Halsey. This
project is under tho management nnd
support of the federal government,
and has for its main object I he for

Thus far about 700 acres of sandhill
land have been planted nt this place,
with a fair degree of success. The

The professors collected numerous
soil samples and specimen's of various
