Growers eligible to vote in the referendum are those who produced more than 15.0 bcres of wheat in any one of the years 1959, 1960 or 1961. Producers who signed applications under the feed wheat provisions permitting them to grow wheat for feed use only on their farms for 19C1 will not be eligible to vote. The results of the referendum will determine the kind of wheat program that will be in effect for next year's crop. For this reason, every wheat producer should make his wishes known by casting his ballot. Voters in Kossuth county may vote from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Kossuth County .ASCS Office in Algona. ASC Committee Chairman Richard I. Anderson said that wheat farmers of this county should be giving serious consideration to this vote. He urgea them to contact him, or anyone at the county office for details concerning the wheat referendum. Recent legislation passed by congress adds a new feature to the wheat referendum. It is a plan calling for a reduction 01 wheat acreage by at least 10 percent, with an additional cut of 30 percent authorized. The federal government would pay for the reduced acreage, which must then be put into agricultural conservation uses. In addition, wheat price support under a quota program will be increased to a minimum national average of $2 for the 1962 crop. If quotas are turned down, the support will be only 50 percent of parity, which at present levels is about $1.18 per bushel. v The *KossUtH; 'County ^Falif opened with a bang Tuesday aa 3,025 persons .paid admissions during the day—a' total i about A double first day, attendance in' 1960.
