PHDUt 8« *10 WEST ASH HtBI'S THI ANSWIR TO EXTRA traction Arkansas soil conservation funds were cut by approximnlely 7 1-2 per cent under original estimate, < National 4-H "lj'etter"Met'hod7 Elcc- which were made when the pro- grain ,of practices was mapped out last .spring, Mr. GaUungs said. Under normal conditions, he explained, the difference between the amount of the funds actually made available to Arkansas and the amount of soil payments earned by farmers would be met by the transfer to Arkansas of lunds made available to but. unused by other .states under the program. This means that unless Congress appropriates a special deficiency fund, fanners of Arkansas a.s well as some olhcr Southern states may be deprived of full payment for soil practices which !he government encouraged them lo undertake.
