THE SUNDANCE TIMES 8undanee, Wyo. Feb. 14, 1957 ----OUll SOIL * OUR STRENGTH E By Windy Winters "We feel that a Farmer or Rancher wit~ a plan of Conserva- tion Operations is a practical man with an eye on the future and is generally a good risk." Frank Blakeman of the Sundance State Bank said that. A couple more little gems that I picked up at the Panel discus- sion were, "A man can go no place but out of business if he continual- ly ignores the proper management of his range," Harian Williams. ,,we recognize the necessity of Conservation farming and ranch- in]g, it keeps us in business," Ed Jones came up with that. "As far as the welfare of our natural resources are concerned, this country would be much better off if it had been left with the In- dians," that is from "Red" Willis' Agricultural Economic standpoint. !: ?i! ~i A program featuring six train. ed dbg~ was presentec~ by Ed McPht~on of Upton last Thurs- day at an assembly held in the Sundance high school gymna. sium. McPherson's dogs perform such acts as walking on their hind feet, rolling barrels, Jump- ing rope, teeter.tottering, ladder climbing and bar walking. McPherson was forced to give up the livestock business because of failing health so, as he de- scribes it, he deeide~ to go to the dogs. He first showed his dogs in Nov. 1954 and since then he has shown them all over the country, from Montana to Florida. Busi. ness clubs and fair boards in many states have hired McPher- son to show his dog act. McPherson's dogs are well trained and obey all his com- mands perfectly. MePherson was born and rais- ed at Hereford, S. D. and has spent his entire life in the Black Hills area. John Scott, assltant to the pub, lisher of Time magazine, will be' the featured speaker at the 2nd annual Community Leaders Con- ference at the University of Wyo- ming, Feb. 14-16. Scott has re- eently returped from the Middle East and India. Community Leaders from all over Wyoming have been invited to participate in the program, "Eastern Europe to the MidMe East --- A Study in Nationalism," by the UW com- mittee on International AffairS. Scott also will speak at an all- school assembly. other years, separate fund drives were held to raise money for Sunny Divide 4-H Club After we got the kids in bed the (Feb. 14) other night we got to talking about Mr. and Mrs. Jim Ross were in the Farm Institute (she generally Belle Fourche on business one day stays up 'till I get the dishes done), this week.
