Lest The Legends Die Forestry At Isu From 1954 To 1979, George W. Thomson

Ames Forester

The pride and integrity of a tribe depends on a continual renewal of awareness of its historic foundation. Thus it becomes the duty of some ancient shaman to chant the old tales for the wide-eyed wonder of the young lest the legends die. G. B. MacDonald fulfilled this function for all Iowa State foresters in 1954 when the Golden Anniversary of the Forestry Department was celebrated.

Ski Party, Nita Rauch

Ames Forester

The odds were against us the entire week. The weather was bitterly cold with 20-30 mph winds. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday brought rain, freezing rain and ice. On Friday, January 19th, the date of our annual Ski Party, travelers' advisories were out for the entire state with highways 100% ice-covered from Ames to Fort Dodge. Phone lines were down. Cancelling the party seemed a near reality since communications with the ski lodge near Humbolt could not be completed.

Spring-Damper Control Of Lateral Cutting Angle For A Variable-Speed Moldboard Plow, Hamid F. Al-Jalil, Stephen J. Marley, Wesley F. Buchele Jan 1979

Spring-Damper Control Of Lateral Cutting Angle For A Variable-Speed Moldboard Plow, Hamid F. Al-Jalil, Stephen J. Marley, Wesley F. Buchele

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Publications

The draft of a moldboard plow increases with forward speed. It has been demonstrated that this increase in draft can be controlled by reducing the lateral cutting angle as speed increases. This paper describes some spring-damper mechanisms used to control the lateral cutting angle of a moldboard plow bottom.
