SHOE REPAIR Guaranteed Workmanship MEZZANINE FLOOR Kern Farmers May Get 300 Feet of Lumber Per Quarter Kern county farmers who need lumber for essential repair or construction ciC implements or farm service buildings may now buy up to 300 board measure per quarter by simply signing an application at the lumber yard, J. R. Bright, Kern County Agricultural Conservation Association chairman, declared today. A farmer's lumber certificate is necessary before the purchase of more than 300 feet of board may be made, Mr. Bright said. Applications for the lumber should be made nt the County Agricultural Adjustment Agency office at 2405 M street. The committee has authority to issue farmer's lumber certificates for essential maintenance and repair use and for new construction (other than residences where the cost is more than $1000 per farm per calendar year. For construction which must be approved by the War Production Board, the ACA committee receives farmer's applications and makes recommendations but does not issue certificates. Ratings High Farmer's lumber certificates rank as "certified and rated" orders, with ratings as high as any non-military users, Bright stated. Dealers may use the ratings when they place orders. "In fact," the ACA chairman said, "these ratings offer the only opportunity to keep enough lumber in the county to meet our essential farm needs." Farm-stored sudan grass seed, as well as seed stored in approved warehouses, Is eligible for the Commodity Corporation Program. Loan rates announced this week are 5 cents per pound, on the basis of the content of pure seed with 85 per cent germination stored on the farm; ti cents per pound for common sudan grass seed stored in approved warehouses; and 9 cents per pound for certified seed. AAA Handles Loans Loan negotiations are handled through the county AAA office in Bakersfield. A storage allowance of 10 cents per cwt. will be paid on farm-stored sudan grass seed If it is delivered to the CCC in lieu of paying the loan. To avoid chaotic egg market problems that followed shortage of egg cases during the 143-44 peak season, the War Food Administration, advocates placing orders for an appreciable portion of 1944-45 egg case requirements now. "WFA reports that new wooden cases will not be available for civilian use in any appreciable volume for the coming season and that 85 per cent of the new cases available will be corrugated fiber board. Meetings in Yuba City Beginning at Yuba City on Tuesday, August 22, a series of meetings between county Farm Machinery Rationing committees and machinery dealers in the respective areas, to discuss the provisions of the 1944-45 farm machinery rationing order scheduled. The use of a letter of eligibility is expected to eliminate the issuance of more than one purchase certificate for each available item of rationed equipment, thus cutting down the time and difficulty of securing delivery of such items. The meeting for this district will be held in Tulare on Friday, August 25.

ARRAMS OPTOMETRIST 1107 Nineteenth Street Phono 2-73JS rj since 1895 are indicated by the Department of Agriculture's first cotton crop report of 1944. According to the AAA, there will be a record carryover of world cotton on hand, when the present war is over. The total carryover of world cotton was at a peak of 24 million bales on August 1, 1943, and is probably higher now compared to the 1935-1939 average of slightly over 17 million, the agency's report stated. Food Wasted From 20 per cent to 30 per cent of all the food produced in this country is wasted somewhere between the plow and the plate, the Office of Price Administration revealed today. While no rep6rts of any kind are required of farm slaughterers, the OI'A requires reports on all meats having point value which a farmer sells or transfers. California's share of the approximate 1945 national wheat goal of 68,500,000 acres amounts to 700,000 acres and represents a boost of 18 per cent over the 11)44 planted acreage, Dave Davidson, state AAA chairman said today. Early announcement of the California wheat goal will allow grain farmers time enough to make their 1945 plans before seeding of grain starts next month, Davidson said. "The total of state acreage goal figures is calculated to provide adequate supplies of wheat for food at home and abroad and to allow greater margins," the state AAA chairman explained, "especially since the August estimate of 1944 wheat production is considerably higher than was indicated earlier this year.
