WASHINGTON, (IP) -- Agricultural adjustment administration officials said Monday benefit payments to the farmers since the agency was created in 1933 have passed the two billion dollar mark. A staff of workers is busy sending out checks for the $470,000,000 being paid farmers who co-operated last year in the soil conservation program. Congress has been asked to provide another §500,000 for benefit payments _ this year. · AAA records showed corn-hog farmers had received $520,000,000, more than one-fourth of the first two billions. Of this, $488,000,000 was in rental and benefit payments and $43,000,000 under the government purchase program. Cotton Ranks Second. Cotton ranked second with $480,000,000 of AAA funds, and wheat third with $360,000,000. ' Federal sugar programs accounted for ?8B,000,000; tobacco, $02,000,000; rice, $10.000,000, and peanuts, $5,000,000.' Although there has been no cattle program, more than $140,000,,.!000 was_.'Used..ini^buying.. drought and ' diseased ; cattle", and "another $8,000,000 for sheep and goats.
