Aim* for Abundance Say County Leaders The AAA program for 1938 provides an abundance of agricultural products for American consumption, for exports and for reserves, accrding to Robert Loss, chairman of the Kossuth County AAA committee. Acreage or goals, provided by the 1938 program for the seven major soil depleting crops (corn, wheat, rice, cotton, tobacco, potatoes and peanuts) are large enough to produce a supply sufficient for domestic needs, to care for foreign demand, and to assure a large enough carry-over of crops which can be stored from year to year. Participation in the AAA program Is voluntary, and acreage allotments apply to those who cooperate and qualify for payments. Farmers Produce Record Crops Farmers, In 1937, led the nation In producing a superabundance. With the help of fine weather farmers achieved a volume production of the 53 leading crops which was the highest on record. They produced the largest cotton crop in all our history, the largest wheat crop since 1931, and the largest corn crop since 1932. In establishing allotments for the seven crops for 1938, carry-over from 1937 was taken into consideration for crops which can be stored, and the allotments set at a point to provide adequate reserves and thus protect both the producer and the consumer. With corn, wheat, rice and tobacco the 1938 acreage goals or allotments are larger than the acreage required for domestic use and exports. The 1938 cotton goal of 29 million acres was designed to. take into account the abnormal world supply of American cotton for 1937-38, amounting to over 24 million running below. Corn Total Higher The carry-over of corn from the 1937 crop plus the 1938 crop is expected to make the total supply at least 10 percent larger than required for domestic consumption and, exports, as compared with the normal reserve of 7 per cent in excess of domestic consumption and exports. The^national wheat allotment for 1938 at 6?H million acres Is about 9 million acres larger than required for domestic use and exports National potato acreage goal for 1938 is between 3,100,000 and 3,300,000 acres. Average acreage over a ten year period has been 3,346,000 acres. In 1937 American farmers harvested 287 million acres of soil depleting crops. Domestic use and exports require 258 million acres. The total soil-depleting goal under the 1938 AAA program is 275 million acres. Bichpoint News Carl Hutchlns and Milton Bur- llngame have purchased new combines to use during the approaching harvest season. Miss Mary Black spent several days last week at Brltt with her sister, Pauline Black, who Is em- played in a beauty shop. Russel Kelly visited last week with his aunt, Mrs. John Johnson.
