FARM CONSERVATION PROGRAM ANNOUNCED Details of the cost-sharing agricultural conservation program (ACP) for 1961 in Allamakee county were announced this week by Lester Smith, chairman of the.ASC committee. He stated that the soil and water conservation practices offered in the 1961 program are substantially the same as those offered in 3960. He emphasized, however, that in line with higher construction costs the allowable cost-share rates for several practices will be a little" higher in 1961. As in previous years, the cost- sharing program for 1961 will be administered on the local level by the farmer-elected county and community ASC committeemen. All farmers in the county who wish to participate in the 1961 ACP will be given an opportunity to apply for practices anytime after January 1, 1961 at the county ASC office in Waukon. Agricultural conservation program is designed to help farmers establish needed conservation practices on the land. Allamakee county received an allocation of $60,260 for the 1961 program. Cost-share rates are established so that they represent from about 50 per cent to as much as 70 or 80 per cent of the average cost of performing the practices offered in the county. The farmer will bear the remaining cost of completing the practices ONE-HUNDRED THIRD Mrs. J. E. Scott of Allerton recently celebrated his 103rd birthday.

Just a handful of shopping days before Christmas! The best-organized parade of the year! Every marcher has been summoned by advertisements . . . elated by the music and decorations . . . inspired by the joy of giving. Each has a destination, an objective, a mission. And there's a kind of desperate dedication in it all: everyone searching for something someone else needs! But never confuse the December parade with the real dedication of Christmas, What every sovl needs is not displayed in windows. And Christmas means nothing unless it means: ALL WE REALLY NEED ...
