The Pacific Southwest, as considered in this bulletin, embraces
the two States-California and Nevada. Evidences of soil and
water losses are briefly touched upon, as are the factors contrib-
uting to these losses. The bull(of the bulletin deals with measures
of defense that are now being employed on farms and range land
within project areas of the Soil Conservation Service and in areas
where members of Civilian Conservation Corps camps have
been assigned to erosion-control activities.
Three project areas are discussed in the section, Defense Meas-
ures in Action. The last section, Spreading Control Through
Districts, deals with the new procedure whereby farmers may
cooperate legally in a more appropriate use of the land.
