S. SC;; Cherokee and Marketing Administration in 1945 and presently, the Agricultural Stabilization and'Conserva- tion Committee. The program has had several distinct periods of operation each "designed to fit the need in each period. The first period emphasized the rebuilding and recuperation of a depressed agriculture. The second period was providing for. rehabilitation of. soil fer^ "tility: that had become depleted during the depression. World War II occurred in this, period, also and brought about! greately expended food requirements. The later periods were marked for post-war adjustments, agricultural conservation improvement, economic stability in farm income and a maintained abundance. '..'.. •:••'•: State, county and township committees administer the various programs under the ASC, such as the Agricultural Conservation Program, Commodity Loan and. Price Support Program ancl many other assigned duties. Cherokee County has been allocated $67,600.00 for the 1956 ACP, program, year, to assist •farmers in carrying out conservation "practices such as terraces, contouring, tiling, limestone, etc. The community loan program was created by executive order in 1,933. It's real purpose was to stabilize supplies and prices of agricultural commodities. This benefited not farmers alone, but the entire nation, as it assured farm prices necessary to get abundant production and thus maintain a balance between production and consumption. Purchasing agreements are in effect on option which does not execute a loan, therefore does not obligate thq farmer, yet gives him. the benefit of taking advan- tageof the' price support on the amount, of grain '.stipulated, if he ! desires ; to deliver to Commodity. Credit;'at, the .time specified. Commodity Credit owns 3,131,000 bushel of steel-bin storage sp'ace in Cherokee-County. There is at- the "present time 2,348,000 bushel: of government-owned corn stored jn. .these, structures. Commodity Credit also has loans on 1,966,338,; bushel of corn stored on farms iii Cherokee County. The original 'officers of the county committee when : organ- jized were: "Glen Curtis, James Kerns, P;"P, Kohns',-LeRoy Pease and Floyd' Anderson. The present officers are: Louis C. Bengtson, chairman; Harold H. Clark, vice-chairman; regular member, Albert N. Meyer and office manager,-Clifford L. Chapman.
