Algona Municipal Utilities JIWILM imiMHIIIHI I Illllllllllllllllllll Illlllllinlllllllllll IIIMIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIHHIHH IMHIHMIIIIIIIHHIIHIIIIIHI CALL ANYWHERE IN 48 STATES FOR Change made in next year wheat program 'Major operating provisions of the 1968 wheat program will be virtually identical to those in effect for the 1967 crop, according to R. I. Anderson, ASGS chairman. An important 1968-program provision detail different from the 1967 program is that the domestic marketing certificates—which are an important part of participating farmers' income—will be issued on an estimated 530 million bushels, reflecting the projected production on 40 percent of farm allotments based on the national allotment of 59.3 million acres. Marketing certificates on the 1968 wheat crop—as for 1967—will be valued at the difference between full wheat parity (as of July 1, 1968) and the national average price- support loan level of $1.25 per bushel. For the 1967 wheat crop, domestic certificates are worth $1.36 pea- bushel compared with $1.32 per bushel for the 1966 crop. Program provisions for the 1968-crop wheat which are identical to those in effect for the 1967 crop include (1) no acreage diversion program (and therefore no alternate nonsurplus crop production), (2) continuation of the substitution provision for wheat and feed grains for "growers participating in both programs, and (3) continuing oi the "excess wheat option" (whereby a producer can plant up to 50 percent in excess of his allotment acreage and still be eligible for marketing certificates and price support loans if the excess production is stored. 4-H CLUBS Irvington IdMls Irvington Ideals 441 club met at Mary Harig's July 15 with 11 members and two visitors.
