A total ot 1,140 farmers In 13 townships contracted with the government during the signup- days held In Mills county, according to County Agent Bruce Kilpatrick, up to this time. "Mills county farmers are enthusiastic about the corn-hog program," Mr. Kilpatrick said, "and we expect that farmers in this county will cooperate nearly 80 per cent before the campaign is oter." During the cleanup phase of tbe program local workers will visit all farmers who have not signed contracts and invite them to cooperate with the government in reducing corn and nog production, If a farmer prefers not to sign, said Mr. Kilpatrick, the local workers ask him for information about corn and hog production on his farm during the last two years. This is the same information requested in the corn-hog work sheet. Contracts are being checked as rapidly as possible in the county agent's office, Mr. Kilpatrick said. He did not know when it will be possible for farmers to receive benefit payments, but said that Dr. A. G.
