WISALTS column

(1984) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 30 August 1984. p. 42 [Publication] [Special Collections]


WISALTS column shares a quotation by Sir James Jeans, "Science should leave off making pronouncements, the river of knowledge has too often turned back on itself". It continues with, 'looking back over a range of sciences it would be indubitably be true at times as new discoveries are made, new techniques evolved and new concepts developed'. Harry Whittington's father said a concrete wall would have to be built round the tops of the hills before the valleys and lower slopes would come back into production. Harry Whittington worked with his father's idea and developed it into the Whittington Interceptor Bank System. WISALTS was formed to help spread the information and techniques to farmers all over the state.
