But, turnips that have brown streaks or get pithy aren't so tasty. One mistake that many gar- deners make in growing tur- nips is to cut the green and let them grow back, then harvest the vegetables. If the tops are cut off there will usually be brown discoloration in the turnip when it's pulled later. To get good turnips, you should ha~fee one area for greens and another for the roots. Russian Technician Visits McAuthur A Russian textile technician and his interpreter have re- cently returned to MacArthur Technical College to complete installation and give instruc- tions on operation of the Rus- sian loom that was recently installed at MacArthur Tech- nical College in the Textile Technology Department.

Patterson The Wiregrass RC&D Coun- cil met in a quarterly session at the Geneva Community Cen- ter Thursday, August 19, to re- view the plan of work for 1977 which will place emphasis on erosion and sediment control measures. The luncheon meet- ing concluded with a tour of the Robert A. Fowler Park in Geneva. Presiding at the session was the chairman of the council, Flournoy Whitman of Elba, who presented plaques to two of the members for "outstanding lea- dership". Honored were M. W. Redd of Ozark, a Dale Coun- ty S&WCD District Supervisor and a,retired farmer, and Jerry Adams, Covington County Commissioner and a District Supervisor from Opp. Each man has served as chairman of the council and both have been on the council since it was organized ten years ago. The ten year anniversary was stressed by the project coordinator Cameron Lyle, who briefly reviewed the work done in the nine county area during this time, noting a num- ber of accomplishments, and pointing out that many of the original objectives have now been realized. The following measures are now in the planning or installa- tion stage in the nine county RC&D area: Old Creek Town Park, Enfaula; Point A Park, Andalusia; Robert A. Fowler Park, Geneva; Walnut Creek Park, Troy; Northwood Drive Channel Improvement, Ozark; Troy City School grounds; Cof- fee County Roadbank Erosion Control; Blackwell Airport Erosion Control, Ozark; Ozark City School grounds; Opp, An- dalusia and Covington County Schoolgrounds. Lyle reported to the council members and other guests that more than $2,350,000 has been spent in RC&D funds on cost- sharing projects in the nine counties during the past ten years. I pd. pol. adv. by Randall Infinger A special emphasis will be placed on the tenth anniversary of the Wiregrass Project when the annual sponsors meeting is held in November. Chairman Whitman named Carl Sikes and Marion Sanders to help plan for this event. The RC&D Council was wel- comed to Geneva by County Ex- tension Engineer Don Hoskins, who represented Mayor Hugh Herring. Hoskins conducted the group on a tour of the bank stabilization project now un- derway at the junction of the Ch0ctawhatchee and Pea Ri- vers where the Robert Fowler Memorial Park is now under development. Chairman Whitman told the group that greater emphasis will be placed on measures that control erosion and sedi- mentation during 1977, point- ing out that the annual plan of work for the council notes that the conservation and pro- tection of the area's natural resource base is essential. Whitman said that the coun- cil has agreed on three main goals for the 1977 short-term planning; developing a broad program to control erosion and sedimentation, continuing to assist on recreation measures and considering smaller size measures in areas of need, and strengthening the project's in- formation program. Guests at the meeting in- cluded Hiram Reeves, ASCS, Troy; Wilbur Donaldson, Dis- trict Supervisor, FmHA, Jack Monk and Barry Lawrence, Alabama Forestry Commis- sion; J. C. Bullington, District Agricultural Extension Ser- vice; Bill CatheU, director of SEARPDC; and C. U. Storey, rural development specialist with the Extension Service. William B. Hughes gave the invocation; M. W. Reed, the re- port from the treasurer. Lyle showed two slide presentations on the progress made in de- veloping good conservation practices in the South.
