I- Brown, County Agent) Now that farm acreage allot ments have been made by the coun ty AAA committee, the farmer li faced with the problem of deciding whether or not to plan his 193! farming operations so that he wil be in compliance with the AAA program. The following statements am interpretations relative to the AAA federal law are given for the purpose of assisting farmers In making a wise decision. 1. Substantial payments will be made by the government for keep- Ing within the corn and soil depleting acreage allotments. 2. Compliance In the program is necessary in order ot be eligible for corn loans. (Loans will be made only to those who keep within their corn acreage allotments). 3. In case a bumper corn crop is produced and market quotas are adopted this fall, those who have kept within their corn acreage allotments will be required to store a smaller amount; they will be given a loan at the full .rate and they will be permitted tomorrow on aa much corn as they wish to seal. Non-coperators will be given a loan at 60 per cent of the full rate and only on their storage amount. 4. Economists are generally of opinion that large partlcpation in the AAA program will have a strong tendency to stabilize the production and prices of corn and livestock and thus be of benefit to both producers and consumers. 5. Payments are available for soil building and soil conserving practices. See your township committee for details of the program. \ Oil COOLING /«,<• tauunu S naaoiuf. Kohlhaas & Spilles w. r.
