l Ill H And SENT[NI~JL BUTTE REVIEW OFFICIAL PAPER OF GOlDEN VALLEY COUNTY AND THE CITY OF BEACH VOLUME 4 WORK OF CO. AGENT IS PRAISED 41 New England Man Tells Of Fine Work By J. C. Russell (By M. J. Connolly) (Editor, Hettlnger County Herald) Lives of "G-Men" county agents, for instance; oft remind us that their foot prints may be traced upon the contour of the country. The footsteps of J. Clayton Russell for the past 16 years agricultural ex- tension agent, may be traced all over Golden Valley county with ease and interest. There are more acres of summer fallowed land in Golden Valley than in any of the adjoining counties, more acres of Ceres wheat in com- lmrison with other varieties, all the flax in the county more resistent. One of the easiest ways of tracing the footst~-ps of the county agent in Golden Valley is to make an exam- ination of some 80 sbelterbets plant- Sentinel Butte To Open Schools Sept. 9 BEAOH, GOLD]]~ VAIJ.~Y COUNTY. NORTH~DAKOTA. THURSDAY. AUGUST 29. 1~35 Interesting Scenes Picked [Jt) by G. N. D. A. Cameraman I! The Schools of the Sentinel Butte School District No, 2 will open on September 9th. The same faculty as last year will be in charge of the rural schools. There will be two new high school teachers in the local high school, and one in the [own grade school. ProsPective" students of Sentinel Butte High School should remember that the Sentinel Butte High School is at the present and has been con- tinuously for the past fifteen years a first class state high school, and a member of the Northwest Associ- ation of Secondary School and Col- leges. This acdrediting is based up- on the efficiency ef the grade instruc- tion, the training and qualifications of the high school personnel and the sanitary conditions of the schools. We want every prospective student to know that there isn't any truth to the rumor circulated by enemies ef the school "that we are not on ac- credited high scl~bol?' We have in our possession the certificate of ac- crediting from the State Department of Public Inst~ruction. A fuller announcement will be giv- en In next weeks paper. M. A.

Golden Valley countY western counties. During a few days is the Yeguar appearance of small in the early spring of 1926 County Badlands cedar trees in gardens: [Agent Russell used the telephone to sell 1400 bushels of Ceres seed wheat which may be the reason that fully 70 p-or cent of the wheat in Golden Valley county is Ceres and less than 330 per cent was Marqis l~l a ,~-~.r~eY made in 1934. Formerly there was a bad mixture of grains in Golden Valley county. Right in the city of Beach the county commissioners arranged to have demonsti'ation plats of the different varieties of wheat, and farmers com. ing to the county seat had an oppor- tllnity to view and decide for them- selves advantages of growing the best varieties. Another project prop; edto farmers that the use of super- Phosi~te ripened wheat 6 days earliel'. Another ,.way in which to trace the footsteps of "G-Man" Russell about Golden Valley county is to view the deserted prairie dog towns. The county agent distributed 223 bu- shels of poison in 1934 and villages of these destructive rodents were de- stroyed in a campaign which virtually cleaned the county and reclaimed tfiousands of acres of farm laud. ehelterbelts, residential yards are even in the landscaping of the fine large courthouse of Beach. County Agent Russell's car has carried hundreds of those little Cedar trees in trips about the country dur- ing the past 16 years and the grace: ful evergreens have a way of show- ing up Just where they are most needed to give an artistic flourish or a showing of color in a yard, a park or public grounds. Badlands cedars, native to the country; have a way of taking reel and they grow rapidly. Thus far farmers have been able to secure them at little or no cost.

Tracking "G~Men" in different counties may become an interesting study in future years. Footsteps of the deceased county agenL C. CI Russell, who has aided with every 1~astgate; may be traced in the at-tsllo campaign, has a distinctive type falls fields of Slope county and in of silo which is an aid to following his tracks about the country. His special form calls for a 13-ft. deep pit silo with 8 feet above the surface of stone and cement reinforced with hog fence, making a silo 21 feet deep. There is an independent livestoctk shipping association at Beach which Russell aided in organlztng in 1922. The association is still going strong with an average of 40,000 head of livestock handled annually. Strip farming is a comparatively new project started in Golden Val- ley county. A field is divided in three parts. One part is in s~mmer fallow while two of the narrow strips are in wheat: This arrangement al- lows summer tilling while pervent- lng soil blowing. Double corn rows are also run through fields to pre- vent drifting of soil on many Gold- en Valley farms. Farming in Golden Valley county is managed upon a different scale than in the years from igor02 to 1912 when A. C. Townley and his brother were attempting their bonanza flax operations. Even in 1934, the driest year this section has ever ~nown, Golden Valley farmers sold 80,000 bushels of seed wheat-to the federal government and Golden Valley coun- ty, on the highest plateau in the state bought no Red River Valley straw last year. "The paths that county agents tread can be traced in every coun- ty." says B. E. Groom. chairman of the Agricultural committee of the Greater North Dakota Association, who closely cooperates with each or these "G-Men" and who is a careful observer of conditions in every sec- tion. A deep impression has been made in Golden Valley county where coun- ty Agent J. C. Russell has been trav- eling the path of progress during 16 years. The fact that this is one coUn- ty on the Slope where there is n6~ foriegn language problem may furnishI 'a factor which aided in accelerating] the agricu!tural'~P~gram' Many nat..

Different agents h~ve done distinct- ire work in other counties; althougl~ sometimes it takes years to trace the footsteps in the sands of time. The work of County Agent J.C. Russell is written large upon the landscape of high plateau in Nort~ Dakota known as Golden Valley- in the large number of summer tilled area; but there are greater agricult- ural accomplishments which may be traced to this government man whose long record of service gives oppor- tunity to study results. For several years Russell conduc- ted a project to learn, what caused higher protein content in wheat. This 8ingle-handed project; the first of Its kind ever tried in the United States; proved that weeds lowered the protein content in wheat. These tests which Russell carried through four years, brought out ether facts of prime importance to wheat grow- ers; agricultural and the milling in- dustry. He demonstated In a new menner the heavy cost of allowing weeds in fields. Russell has done other origins! work. For instance, there are 24 cis- terns en farms in Golden Valley, built on form~ built and owned by t~e county agent. Russell charges a very small rental fee and as more farmers conserve rain water zor n:r,~enoid nse he eventually will receive a re- turn of his original investment. He also has built forms for a celnent root cellar which numerous "farmers ]mve found practical to use. Farmers have found lily pools, built under the direction of the county agent, add a touch of cool beauty to lawn and garden.
