Two THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, August 31,1952. County ACP Funds Are Exhausted are held by and Garden and the International Groups. Mrs. Bernard C. Reddon is in charge of I . „ . . , .the House arid Garden Group I All funds alloted to Leavenworth | which studies nome decor . County to assist farmers Jn^ar-j flower arran g ing - and subjects re l to making army quarters a ' home for the tour. have been allocated, according to Ernest Meerpohl, Leavenworth County PMA officer. No assistance can be given on any practices for which producers have not received prior approval of the county committee, he said. Farmers who have prior approvals for any practices are urged by Meerpohl to complete these practices immediately as no approvals can be extended beyond Sept. 15. In an effort to avoid any misunderstanding, Meerpohl pointed out that the execution of a farm work sheet by a producer does not constitute prior approval for any practices. Before beginning any practice on which it is intended to receive program assistance.Meer- pohl urges that farmers contact the county office to ascertain iJ funds have been allocated for such \vork. The short length of time in which 1952 ACP funds have been exhausted and the interest displayed by farmers in the conservation program is evidence of the fact that Leavenworth County farmers are becoming more aware each year of the benefits to be obtained by carrying out approved conservation measures and following a good soil conservation plan on their farms, Meerpohl stated.
