MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 7 193G SEVEN WALLACE THINKS NEW PROGRAM WILL AID MORE THAN AAA GOOD FARMER TO BE BENEFITTED Secretary Says Those Who Had Soil Building to Get Recognition. WASHINGTON, l/P) -- Secretary Wallace thinks tie "good farmer' is going to be better off under the new soil conservation program than under the old AAA program. Criticism has been heard in the middlewest tha,t the new program carries on one of the chief objections raised against the AAA com-ho L program--that the farmer who had been engaged in wise soil conservation practices would not benefit as much as the farmer who had been over-planting surplus crops and un derplanting crops which would aid his soil. Wallace indicated that two phases of the new program would tend toward removing this objection. One is the "allowance" system adopted as a guide to payments for soil building crops. Thus, Wallace noted, a farmer with 50 acres of soil-building crops last year would have an opportunity to receive substantially larger payments this year from new seedings or other soil improving' practices than the farmer who had only 30 acres last year in soil building crops. The other phase is the power to be given state and county committees to adjust soil-depleting base figures where they are out of Jine with normal practice in a county.
