The rate of pulled wool payments will be determined after the price received by all producers for shorn wool is known. The wool incentive payments for the 1955 marketing year, which ends next March 31, will be made next summer. Similarly, the incentive payments for the 1956 marketing year, which will end March 31, 1957, will be made in the summer of 1957. Incentive payments in the wool program will be made through county ASC offices.

Alice Illg To Head St. Joe 4-H Group Club Meeting? Wonderful how your telephone helps you get things organized fast. If you're on a party line, remember to allow some time between calls—so important messages can reach you, so those who share your telephone service can also use the line. Other tips for good party-line service: give up the line for emergency calls, replace the receiver carefully, hang up quickly and quietly when you find your telephone line in use. Remember, party- line courtesy is catching. Northwestern Bell Telephone Company.
