Santa Made It • So Did Kids Atgonci, (la.) Upper DM Molnw- Tuesday, November 30, 1965 Not Ready For Signup Yet In '66 Grain Plan In response to a number of inquiries, Richard I. Anderson, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, said today that the ASCS County office is not ready at the present time to sign up participants in programs author- ised by recently enacted farm legislation. Programs for which signups will be conducted - probably early in 1966 - include feed grains, wheat, and cropland adjustment. "It is gratifying that farmers are showing so much interest in these diversion programs," the chairman said. "However, there are many details to be taken care of before field offices are in position to answer questions about how any of the programs may apply to a specific farm and to accept applications showing the grower's intention to participate." "When the signups do start, farmers will be reminded in plenty of time to file program applications before a stated deadline. Normally, such signups continue for about six weeks." Despite uncooperative weather, which turned from bad to worse, hundreds of area children visited good old St. Nick at his little house on the southeast corner of the courthouse square here Friday afternoon. The jolly, red-faced old gent arrived aboard one of the city's fire engines at 1:15 p. m. and began dispensing free candy to an already-waiting crowd. The little miss above, Peggy Lee Halverson, 8-month old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Halverson, newcomers to Algona from North Dakota, was listening intently to Santa Glaus before receiving her candy. While not old enough to tell him what she would like for Christmas, we'll bet the happy satisfier of all children will find something for her when he makes his rounds Christmas Eve. Free shows were also featured Friday - and local merchants had all (or practically all) of their Christmas merchandise on display for a town full of early shoppers. As to the weather - it's enough to say it began sleeting before getting down to the more serious task of blowing snow. It was tough getting around - but lots of kids made it!
