GEOGRAPHY OF DENTON COUNTY
lack of attention to the care of farms brings on aban-
doned farm lands. Three or four farmers might go
together and buy a "farm level" and other terracing
equipment at small cost, and work out some of their
problems in this manner. However, the rules of the
Emergency Conservation Work in connection with the
C. C. C. are very favorable toward assisting every
farmer in regard to machinery, labor, seed, etc. Data
from the E. C. W. Camp T. 17, give some concise
factual information on erosion and slope conditions in
Denton County. The data expressed in per cent, are
given according to farms already mapped or observed.
