B. Walker 77 KNOW YOUR FARM PROGRAM The 1939 Wheat Acreage Allotment for Harlan County has been received and Individual acreage allotments will be established by the Committee as soon as the Wheat History on-each farm can be secured for the years 1938, 1937 and 1938. Farmers who have not returned the Wheat Questionaire forwarded to them from this office are urged to fill In the information requested on this form and mail it to the office without delay. Each farmer should be aware of the fact that the payments he will receive for staying within his acreage allotment are quite attractive in that he will receive between 12 and 15 cents per bushel on his allotment established under the 1939 figure, and In addition to this, will receive a parity payment of 10 cents per bushel on the same allotment if he stays within the acreage established for his farm In 1939. This, with a loan value averaging In the State from 50 to 60 cents, will guarantee the farmer somewhere between 72 and 80 cents a bushel for his wheat In his allotment if he meets all the provisions necessary to receive these payments.

The payments as shown above would range from $2.20 to $2.50 per acre on a farm In Harlan County appraised at average production for the county. la addition to this payment the farmer who seeds his wheat in compliance with the Acreage Allotment for his farm in 1939, will be elegible for Crop Insurance and a Wheat Loan In 1939. We believe we should bear In mind that the responsibility of parrying out the wheat program rests upon the farmers themselves and that it is their own program either to make or break. Farmers should understand that under the present conditions of world supply, unless they wish to have subsidies as a method of getting rid of the surplus supply, it' will be necessary to reduce acreages to a point where we might receive a mar-kt price for wheat that will equal cost of production plus a little profit. Elizabeth and Margaret Walters returned to their home to Emporia, Kansas, this week after spending a month to Alma, guests of Mr.

and Mrs. Ed Wilcox. Mr Mrs. Guy Johnson, of Ventura, California, are spending the week to Alma, visiting at the home of the formers brother, Mr. and Mrs.

L. Tl Johnson, and with Mrs. Johnsons relatives, the Eversons and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Seyler.

VIRGINIA MURPHY News Reporter PRAIRIE DOGS Pioneers remember the many prairie dog towns in Nebraska, andound them interesting. According to research workers of 4he Federal Writers Project, WPA, at a 300-acre prairie dog town just west of Loup City an elderly German bachelor spent many hours enticing prairie dogs to his cabin to tame them, by feeding them bread. Fjnally he trained two to call at his cabin dally.

Besides furnishing hours of amusement and study for one interested, they provide an excellent target for sporstman. Appearing at the mouths of their dens, they stood i on their legs and barked to the sun. In and out they darted, so quickly that some people insisted -at the crack of the gun they disappeared to their dens before the bullet could reach them. It is reported that prairie dogs, rattlesnakes, and owls lived together to the same holes. On a hot summer day when the rattlers came out to bask to the sun, the pioneers killed great numbers of them.
