Wheat producers eligible"* to Vote in th« 1962 wheat marketing quota referendum to be held hr "u.->, 24 may cast their ballots at the Fayette, county A.S.C.S. office in Fayette, according to Ellis Wl Thompson, chairman of the county A .S.C. committee. Growers eligible to vole in the referendum are those wlio produced more than 13.5 acres of wheat in any one of the years 195U, I960 or 1961. Producers who signed applications under the feed wheat provisions permitting them to gnjw wheat for feed use only on their farms for 1961 will not be cligitle to vote. The results of the referendum will determine the kind of wheat program that will be in effect for next year's crop. For this partment of Agriculture estimates. This starting of an upward trend in the farm economy will have far-reaching results. About 1.2 million of the Nation's corn and grain sorghum farmers arj cooperating in the 1961 Feed Grain protfram. These cooperating farmers agreed to divert 3lmo t a fifth r f their usual arroage 'f n-rn and a fourth of their rrain sorghum acreage to conr-ivation USJS. The latest 1*. S. D. A. crop report shows estimated production of corn for grain in 1961 at 3.2 billion bushels, compared with 3.9 billion bushels produced in 1960. The diversion of corn and grain sorghum acreage "under the program will mean saving U. S. tax- pavers a potential cost of nearly $750 million over a period of years. In addition, the quantity of feed grains held in Commodity Credit Corporation inventory will be reduced by almost 400 mill'on bushels, thus reversing a trend which has seen a sharply mounting accumulation of feed grains. From 1952, the annual increase in feed grains in stock in the U. S. showed the following rate (in millions of tons as of the first of each year): 1953 — 6.9; 1954 — 4.7; 1955 — 7.4; 1956 — 4.3; 1957 — 5.6; 1958 — 10.2; 1959 — 8.6; 1960 — 7.0; 1961 — 10.3; 1902 (est.) — 11.0. Because of the stocks of corn accumulated, (one and one-third billion bushels as of May 31), the Government now finds itself in the position where costs are about $1.50 for each bushel of corn produced in excess of current needs. Savings will result from not every wheat producer havin S to pay storage, handling, known Iowa State plans winter Farm operation program Iowa State University now is accepting applications for its The large number of students Jo Ingels, Rickie Keefer, Denise winter quarter pnogram in Farm who will be enrolled in the first, Klemp, Cary Langermna, Mari- n * : second and fifth grades of the lyn Lehs, Eric Linge, Berley Fayette Community school this Moore, Curtis Orr, Debra Patti- fall will make it necessary to son, Thurman Rogers, Jimmy divide each of the classes into Schneider, Raymond Smith, Lee two sections.
