LUCKY PRIEST Bancroft — "Jake" Lattimer, a former Bancroft business man who now lives in Pensacola, Fla., reports this amusing incident which concerned a former Bancroft priest. Seems the Rev. Patrick Waite, who as an assistant priest at St. John's some years ago and now a navy chaplain, went to the Sugar Bowl New Year's day with another chaplain to see the LSU-Syra- cuse game. But at the gate, Father Waite discovered he'd forgotten his ticket and it was too close to kick-off time to go back and get it. The other priest went in to his seat, Meanwhile, Father Waite accidentally got in line where people were being hired for ushers and got a job, A short time later, while he was ushering people to their seats, an assistant Syracuse coach spotted Father Waite, called him over and gave him a seat on the Syracuse bench. And all during the game the other chaplain was feeling sad Feed grains sign up dates announced Dates for the signup period in the 1965 feed grain and wheat stabilization programs were announced by R. I. Anderson, the Kossuth ASC chairman. The signup period for both programs will run for seven weeKs, from Feb. 8 through Mar. 26. The signup will be open to all farmers having feed grain bases and to all spring wneat producers having wheat allotments. Farmers who have both a feed grain base and a wheat allotment and who sign up for both programs may .elect to take advantage of a new provision permitting substitution of wheat for feed grains or feed grains for wheat in 1965. The signup for winter wheat producers for the 1965 wheat program was held last fall. Producers who signed up at that time may change their intentions during the coming signup period by applying to the county ASCS.office. As in previous years, participation in the feed gram and wheat programs is voluntary on the part of eligible producers but those who wish to take part must enroll during the announced signup period. Farmers who participate in the 1965 feed grain program-will be eligible tor diversion and price-support payments as in past years. They' will also be eligible for price-support loans on their entire 1965 production of corn, grain sorghum and barley. Support payments will be made to participants whether their 1965 feed grains are fed on the farm, sold or placed under price-support loans. The 1965 wheat program is generally the same as tor 1964 and provides for diversion payments, marketing 'certificates and price-support loans. Details, including new provisions, will be explained to interested wheat producers by the county ASCS office.

"By fir tht (arg«*t (irculation To participate in the 1965 feed grain program, the farmer agrees to take out of production and devote to approved conservation use at least 20 percent of his farm's feed grain base. Maximum diversion is 50 percent of the base or 25 acres whichever is greater. The reduction may be made in any of the feed grains — corn, grain sorghum and barley. The diversion payment will be based on the crop diverted. If less than 40 percent of the farm feed grain base is actually diverted, the diversion payment will be made at one-fifth of the county support rate on the normal production of the first 20 percent of acreage diverted from the base, and at one-half of the support rate on the normal production of the remaining diverted acreage. If 40 percent or more of the base is diverted, the higher diversion payment rate will apply to all of the diverted acreage. Each owner and operator having a feed graiiTbase has been mailed an official notice of the farm's 1965 base, established normal yield, diversion payment rates and conserving base. Similar notices on wheat were mailed last summer to all farmers having wheat allotments for 1965. Notices on feed grain bases and wheat allotments are important and should be carefully Kept by owners and operators.
