I recognized the zinc deficiency because my father had discovered zinc deficiency on potatoes in Kansas in about He went to town one day to buy some arsenate of lead. Now, in those days we really knew how to kill people with our spray materials. Nowadays we have very safe sprays. With due respect to everything that we're hearing about how bad we are, what terrible people we are to be spraying anything, we spray very safely nowadays and we're very carefully controlled. In those. Now, we got away pretty well with killing all the cabbage worms, because when we cut the cabbage head, we peeled it all back and then we washed it all off and we didn't kill anybody with our cabbage.
Nevertheless, we were spraying with arsenate of lead in the '20s and '30s. So he, father, went to town to buy some arsenate of lead to spray the apple orchard. We had about three acres of fruit.
He went to town to buy the arsenate of lead to spray the apple orchard and spray the potato plants to kill the potato bugs. They told him they didn't have any arsenate of lead, but they had some arsenate of zinc. So he sprayed the potatoes with the arsenate of zinc, and about two weeks later he noticed that half the field was green and the other half had a little yellow tinge. So, he said, "What's going on here?
Well, he found the bags all right. The bags with the arsenate of zinc were right where the green.

And so we sprayed the potatoes with arsenate of zinc from then on and we didn't have any zinc deficiencies and we grew more potatoes to the acre. Well, at the same time we noticed that there was a certain yellowing and curling of apple leaves that couldn't be explained. And also of cherry and peach and pears. We couldn't really tell on the peaches. But on the apples and some of the pears and the cherries particularly, we could learn to identify zinc deficiency and we could correct it by spraying with arsenate of zinc.
We never told the college anything about it, but we went right ahead doing it. Well, when I started surveying the cherry trees, the area with the cherry trees in North Ogden, I spotted the zinc deficiency. So, I just put it in the report, and Dr. Jennings up at the state college said, "There cannot be any deficiency of any minor nutrients in that formation of soil, because that soil is a bed of mix outwash that has all the nutrient elements for life, and that's why we're so prosperous in Utah.

The Mormon farmers are doing very well because the minor nutrient problems had already been solved by mother nature. Well, he wouldn't let us put anything in the soils report about a zinc deficiency in Utah. But there was. I explained to him how to spot zinc deficiency. Well, by he not only got his master's degree, he got his Ph. You can find his dissertations in the records. So then another thing, while I was surveying the soil in Utah, I discovered that the Cicada channeling had -- I wasn't a soil scientist, I was just becoming a soil scientist.
I was really a horticulturalist. Maybe I was an agronomist, I don't know what I was. But anyway, I discovered that the cicada channeling had completely obliterated the normal process of consolidation of the "B" horizon of all the soils that was covered by the sage brush in eastern Utah and western Colorado. And [I discovered] that if you dig down into the soil you could not only determine the soil structure influenced by the cicada channeling, but you could also determine the rainfall that had occurred in the area, because when you got up just above the 18 inch rainfall zone, the cicada channeling disappeared.
We had the seventeen-year locust here; they had the seven- or eight-year locust in parts of Utah. Anyway, it doesn't make any difference how long they stay in the ground, but they never look back; they always leave a channel of soil back of them.
The world's authority on cicada was Dr. Beemer over here at Lawrence, Kansas. So Dr. Beemer and I worked on that, and we studied two things. The amount of alkali in relation to the amount of cicada channeling in the soil; and the rainfall range of cicada channeling. The amount of lime and it's location in the soil profile determined a crop zone, because where the lime was on the surface, it was too alkaline and too arid, to grow beans, or some dry weather crop.
But if you were within an area where soil was leached down to cicada channels; by mapping the soils you could determine where you could grow.
They all grew in that zone, and that could all be determined by examining the soil. So that became part of soil science.

Another thing I accomplished on soils in Utah, was that I was selected to be the Region 8 representative on the National Committee that set up land-use capability tables. That was in I was transferred to Utah, and became attached to the Utah survey group. I was logically the one that they sent to help in Washington, in negotiation. I was in Washington part of the time, and in Salt Lake City part of the time, working on the committee that developed land use capability tables.
I had a big battle with the easterners over the classification, because they just wanted "one, two,. In other words, there was enough productivity, enough rainfall, enough of everything, but maybe too steep a slope or too much rock.

But still [you might] have high fertility and we wanted a classification that we could put those lands in. Then when they got to be a little more erosive on the steeper slopes, we needed another class for the tree slopes where you shouldn't really clear cut or do any intensive management of the forest. Now, we had in mind that sooner or later the Forest Service would start to manage the forest. They never did, but we had in mind at that time that sooner or later the Forest Service would become the organization that Pinchot envisioned. Pinchot, you know, got fired.
Do you know why he got fired? Have you ever heard the story of Pinchot? Well, he was Teddy Roosevelt's favorite wasn't he for awhile, and then he got on the outs with President Taft, didn't he? Amongst other things they got, they had to make peace with the politicians in California so they gave them 25 percent. The Congress didn't want to give this money to Pinchot, to [let him] manage the money that he got out of the forest to create a sustained-yield forest or anything like that.
What they wanted was to get the money turned into the national treasury like it had been under the Interior Department. But the politicians in the West said, "If you're going to transfer anything out here, you're going to have to give us 25 percent of the income before we'll vote for it. So they made a little deal that all the counties in California and the other timber-producing parts of the West would get 25 percent of the revenue.

The rest of the revenue went to the treasury. Well, then the Congress had to vote money to run the Forest Service, and they were very stingy about money to run the Forest Service, because all they wanted them to do was to watch trees grow. They didn't want to create an organization to grow trees, and they never have yet.
They wanted to create an organization to watch the trees grow. And so that's the point. Then he started out to try to develop an organization for sustained yield of forests.

Well, he only got to grow [forests for] two or three years because up in Alaska all of the mining claims had been issued on land that later became his forest land. They, the mining interests, went in and started clear cutting and messing around and destroying his forest. He issued a cease and desist order. He said, "You cease and desist. They said, "We have prior rights.
We can cut these trees any time we please, and we can do anything we want to do with these trees because we have the mineral rights on this tract of land.
