Rohlf, manager of the county ASC. Price support rates for 1955 corn in Iowa, as in all other commercial corn-producing areas of the nation,, will reflect 87 percent of parity.

Only corn produced on farms in compliance with corn acreage allotments will be eligible for price support. Loans and purchase agreements on eligible corn will be available from the lime of harvest through next May 31 and they will mature next July 31. The corn must grade No. 3 or better, or No. 4 on the factor of test weight only, and must be adequately stored. As in past years, applications must be filed with the county ASC office serving the farm on "whtch the grain was produced. Chas. F. Reilly Burial Aug. 19 Funeral services for Charles F.
