Crow's Fate in Balance.
HEN it comes to the question of the crow
the Biological Survey takes a sort of “yes
and-no” attitude. There are those who think
the crow should be exterminated and others
that feel that the bird should be protected.
The survey doesn’t recommend extermination,
neither will It recommend protection.
The crow, when killing Insects, rodents and
crustaceans, and when feeding on carrion, wins
the approval of the experts. It also serves to
spread the seed of beneficial plants. When,
however, the crow destroys small reptiles, wild
birds, poultry, com and other crops, and when
it annoys live stock, its absence is the thing to
be desired. When It spreads the seeds of noxi
ous weeds, it is no friend to the farmer.
So* there you have it. If the crow behaves,
he is an ally and an energetic one in the farm
er’s fight against insects, but when he doesn’t
behave, he is a real and tricky pest.
That leaves the question up to the farmer in
each locality. If the crow's harm outweighs his
good, then the farmer is justified in pitting his
skill against the bird and trying to shoot It.
Soil Surveys by Plane.
'pHE airplane added one more to its grow
ing list of employments when agricultural
experts turned to the air to carry on a quick
and comprehensive soil survey of an entire
county.
The survey was carried on in Jennings Coun
ty, Ind., which contains 400 square miles. The
work was done by means of photographs which
were taken at a height of 13,000 feet, and which
gave all the data necessary for a base map
which showed the limits of good soil areas and
the effects of erosion in other areas.
The success of the test mapping has led to the
belief that future map work can be accom
plished with much greater efficiency than if
the work were carried on at the surface.
