THE CORSIC/ [•WEEKLY LIGHT, TUESDAY, JANtJARY 17, 198§. LESS COTTON BUT FARMERS' INCOME BE APPROXIMATELY SAME WACO, Jan. IS.— (F)— Although cotton production In McLennan county In 1938 was about 25,000 bales short of the 1037 crop the total Income to farmers, consld- . erlng all sources, will be about the same, the offices of County Agent J. C. Jatterson estimates. Total cotton production will bring In $2,250,000 compared with $3,750,000 earned last year, but the difference of $1,200,000, It was explained, will bo readily replaced by other Income McLen- nan county farmer* did not have last year. Patterson said parity payments this year brought Into McLennan county more than $600,000. Soil conservation payments also boosted the county total as receipts this year were more than three times the amount received last year. Cotton In McLennan county farmer's chief Income source, and the Income from other farm products is Very slight In comparison. Patterson said feed crops placed on the market In McLennan county stand about the same as last year, though no definite figures could be produced. Consequently Income for these crops remain almost the same as last year, he said. Easy, convenient, Cheap - • Just Phono Your Want Ad to 163.
