rAGE TWO ed,, " O~la Qt~ In . . . Let's Observe Sod Stewardship Week Soil Stewardship Week will be observed throughout the na- tion from May 3 to May 10. Soil stewardship is not the respon- sibility of a group of dedicated workers in the Lincoln County courthouse. Use of the soil determines the existance of all man- kind. Wise use of the soil will provide the livelihood for future generations. No one is far removed from the soil, it's blessings and it's fruit. In some nations of the world, famine is an ever-present dan- ger. Babies are born, exist through childhood and manhood without ever knowing how it feels to have enough to eat. We, in this God-blessed country, have surpluses of food -- at this time. Yet, a growing population along with declining soil resources call for a look to the future. Let us pause during Soil Stewardship Week to realize our ob- ligation to God, to treat the land as H,IS gift and make a pledge to accept the responsibility for proper usage of this great gift. Stewardship "The earth is the Lord's," says the Psalmist, and all that therein is." The trackless forests, the rivers that wind across our continent, the marsh lands, the p'rairies and the deserts all were made by Him. Man did not create the riches that are spread before him. All of these have been loaned to him as a trust. None of it really belongs to him. His days are as grass and when the span of bis life is over he is the owner of nothing on earth. For a time he is called to be a steward of the riches of the earth, leaving them as a goodly inheritance to his children. He is given dominion over the works of his Creator, but such dominion is a frighten- ing responsibility. One look at a dust bowl, or at a poisoned stream, or at a landscape blackened by fire shows how grave the responsibility can .be. Conservation teaches the principle of wise stewardship. It counsels foresight in place of selfishness, vision in place of greed, reverence in place of destructiveness. Conservation in- volves concern for other generations. It sees beyond the imme- diate and the temporary. It takes into consideration not only our own generation but future generations as well. It recog- nizes the rights of people who are not yet born, citizens who will inherit this land a thousand years from now. It reminds us that they too have the right to enjoy what we enjoy, to profit from the same things, to be inspired by them as we are inspired and to love them as we love them today. Conservation is de- signed to preserve the riches of the earth for human happiness and welfare to the end of time. mRobert M. Hatch $ Quotes and Exchanges THEODORE ROOSEVELT -- When the soil is gone, men must go and the process does not take long. LOUIS BROMFIELD -- To no nation has the earth been more important than to our own. Out of it has grown our ~wealth and our power. Man's greed and carelessness have done much to destroy it by cutting down forests and farming reck- lessly. The task of our generation is to undo that evil and re- store the foundation of our prosperity. It requires a new gen- eration of pioneers equipped with spirit and devotion and pa- triotism. JOHN RUSKIN -- God ha~,' lent us the earth for our life. It is a great entail. It belongs as much to those who are to come after us as to us and we have no right, by anything we do or neglect, to involve them in any unnecessary penalties, or to de- prive them of the benefit which was in our power to bequeath. H. H. :BE~NE2~ -- If we are courageous in accep'ting new ideas, and willing to work with instead of against the land, we shall find in conservation farming the best system of agricul- tare that the world has ever known. y~]~ ~ll~lit~Al [set for the Annual Recognition UU~ 0~n~3VL Banquet sponsored by the Ivan- hoe Community Club for those By |i.

The lvanhoe Times, Ivanhoe, Minnesota, April 30, 1959 MAY 3-10, 1959 A Columr Left By George Fisher Once upon a lovely spring day, a bee was at work in a pasture. As he was working in clover, he felt himself taken into the mouth of a horse and swallowed. Now this made the bee very angry and he thought, "I'm going to sting this old boy so he'll never forget it." It was nice and warm inside W. M. Herschberger, Louis Dorenkampers Enjoy Western Trip Walter Herschberger and Mr. and Mrs. Louis Dorenkamper re- turned recently from the west coast and Walter brought in notes with some of the highlights of their trip. When they left here on December 22, they headed for Boulder, Colorado, for a visit with Walter's daughter and fam- ily, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ray. After Christmas, their next destination was the famous Carlsbad Cav- erns in New Mexico which were toured by the trio. Proceeding westward, they came to Califor- nia near San Diego and then started up the coast. Enroute they had seen rugged mountains, drift- ing sand storms, and miles of des- ert. Costa Mesa was their head- quarters for the next few weeks as they stayed with a daughter of fast tour of Las Vegas, saw the weeks ago and was transferred to famous hotels and inns but didn tithe hospital after suffering a take time off to make any man-[stroke from which she never re- ey." ] covered. Turning t o the northeast,/ Funeral services were held yes Grand Canyon in Arizona was thelterday, Apwil 29, at the Ivanhoe next stop but it was a foggy day' Methodist Church at 2:00 p. m. and the view was limited. A for- ester showed them the complete canyon by means of a half-hour fihn. Three more days were spen: with the Ray family at Boulder, Colorado next. In the state of Colorado, t h e y encountered heavy snow. It was a mild winter weather- wise. Lowest temperatures aver- aged about 40 to 45 degrees and many days they saw the mercury climb up into the 70's. It was April 14 when they re- turned to their homes in this area after an absence of nearly four months. Mrs. G. W. SooE the Dorenkampers, also visited with an uncle and acousin at Ri|eS lleld Long,Beach. Here April 29 In southern California they paid visits to Disneyland, KnoWs Berry Farm and Ghost Town Exactly 17 days after the death: Marineland, Wayfarer's Church, Farmer's Market in Hollywood, of her husband, G.W.

Mrs. Soak color had been in poor health for sev- taken in and they took eral months. She entered the photographs of many of the Hendricks Rest Home a few floats. As they started their horne- ward trek, one of the attractions at which they stopped was Boul- der Dam between Nevada and Arizona on the Colorado river. Walter comments: "We took a the horse and the bee decided that first he would take a nap, then sting old Dobbin! So he dozed off. When he woke up, the horse was gone -- The morale to that story is, "Don't put off until tomorrow what you intend to do today." Last week, third graders from Ivanhoe school toured the Times. They asked a few questions and here are some of them and the answers they were given. Q--How do you put the paper to bed? A--We call it putting the pa- per to .bed when it is all locked up in pages, proofs read, correc- tions made, and ready to print. (I guess the term has merit. The has BLANKETS, we use1 press SHEETS of paper, h o p e [ SPRINGS eternal it will be full of advertising, the editor is ac- cused of MATTRESS-thinking at times, the press has a HEAD and a FOOT like a bed. --O-- Another question the grade students asked: "How do you pay your employees?" The answer is: Like many a small-town bus- inessman, some weeks we ask ourselves the same thing! Seri- ously, in this business, it is quite customary to pay every Saturday night, we pay every two weeks. The once a week custom started in the early days of newspapering because publishers quite often never knew if tl~ey were going to open the doors on the followiz~g Monday morning. --O-- Well, we had it coming. Last week we were upbraided by a good friend of Doe Ellgen's. He wanted to know just how come we had any room to remark about Doe's cool-headedness since the locks on top of my head are about as s~aree as his. I love my job -- I only hate the work. with the Rev. Kenneth Wellman officiating. Pallbearers were El- mer Gubrud, Elroy Heinje, Ar- nold Jorgenson, Lloyd Swanson Truman Nelson and Dr. R. M. Soak. The body was interred in Ivanhoe cemetery. Georgiana I. Johnson was born in Chicago, Illinois, on Septem- ber 25, 1871, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Johnson. On January 4, 1895, she and George W. Soak were united in marriage at Tracy. Farming was their lifelong occupation. They came to Lincoln County in 1910, and except for a period of ten years when they lived at Hill City, the remainder of her life was spent in Lincoln County. Mrs. Soak is survived by one son, Delbert, of Arco; a daughter, Mrs. Tim Burns of Red Lodge, Montana; 11 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, three sisters and one brother. We'll lend you the Colc, r Harmony Book FREE.
