Soil Conservationl District Notes Besides the more well-known benefits of windbreaks such as reduction of wind erosion and barriers to catch snow, trees have many other ecological benefits. Fight Air Pollution Through the process of photosynthesis which goes on in the leaves during the trees' growing cycle, trees are con- tinuously purifying the air. Carbon Dioxide from the air is converted inside the leaves into oxygen which the trees then release back into the air. It has been estimated that in one day one healthy tree will produce enough oxygen from carbon dioxide in the air to support one human being for a day. Are Air Conditioners Evei-yone knows that the coolest place outdoors on a hot summer day is under a tree. Air temperature under the tree can be as much as 20 degrees lower than the temperature out in the sun. This cooling effect comes from more than just being out of the sun. Trms setmflly set as Kearney C00ns Yell "'Put Meyer In" (Editor's Note: Gregg CHte, sports editor of the Kearney State College Antelope discusses Dan Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Denny Meyer of Superior in the following column taken from the An- telope. ) If by chance you've attended some of the KSC home basketball games this season you've probably heard such yells as "put Meyer in" or "we want Meyer," coming from various sections of the stands. In the Chadron game the past weekend, the "Meyer" boosters got their wish and thank their lucky stars that they did. The Chadron Eagles could have built up a lead they never would have relinquished. Dan Meyer, who hails from Superior, is listed as a 6'5" forward on the program, but when called upon to fill in for Loper regulars, he divides his playing time at forward, guard and occasionally the post. Meyer can hit from anywhere on the floor as was evidenced in last Friday's game. Chadron had their game plan down pat and held a domineering ten point lead over the Lopers with ten minutes gone in the first half. With the starters beginning to tire, Meyer was called on as he is in many ball games, to go in and spell the top scorers until they'd be rested and ready for play again. Scoring points isn't outlawed for such bench per- formers, but usually considered an extracurricular activity. Chadron's game plan hadn't called for any special defenses against Meyer. They were in for a surprise. In the next few minutes he popped in a pair of 20 footers, keyed a fast break after stealing an Eagle pass, banked in a driving backhanded lay-up, and swished through coolers. It takes around I0 room-size air conditioners running 20 hours a day to match the cooling effect of one tree. Trees Absorb Noise... Barriers of trees between heavily traveled streets or high- ways and homes do much to reduce the noise level. The closer the trees are to the source of the noise, the greater the noise reduction will be. Dense groves of trees or bushes would be better noise absorbers than a thin grove. " Low Cost o/Trees ...... For example a windbreak 600 feet long and three rows wide would contain approximately 300 trees. Trees through the Clarke-McNary program cost $9.74 per hundred or in this case $29.22 total.
