THURIDAY, JAItUAftY 1,1MO Urges Cooperation Of Jersey Farmers PMA SurmsCor n Acreage from 194749 JER9EYV1LLE, J*n. 4.—(Special)—Corn growers In Jersey County were urged today to cooperate wflh PMA community commlHeemen whfl are now conducting « survey of farms throughout this county. John D. .Quirk chairman of the county. PMA committee, reported that commltteemen are already 1 busy In Jersey County gathering reports o! corn acreage during the past three years. Individual farm acreage allotments should b« announced by the Secretary of Agriculture. The allotments will be founded generally on the farm's corn acreage history for the past three years. "Any farmer who operates a farm which produced corn In any of the past three years, should contact the county PMA office in Jerseyville If he had not furnished a commltteeman the corn acreage allotment with the county PMA office. The last date for filing such • request Is Jan. 20." If allotments should be an- nouced for the 1950 corn crop, every farm In Jersey County will be affected by the program. According to Qnlrk, the survey It particularly Important because the new price support law directs that price supports on the 1950 corn crop be set up at 90 percent of parity to cooperators. Whenever corn auppliei at the beginning of the marketing year exceed normal by more than ,20 percent, corn marketing quotas, at well at acreage allotments must be proclaimed. Quotas may not be put Into effect, however, unless at least two-thirds of the growers voting in a referendum approve the aame. Weather Cawet Controversy Among Jerseyville Prophets JERSEYVtLUB, Jan. ». — <Sp«* cial) — JerttyvHle's long rang* weather prompters declare that if t thunders In January we may expect frost In May. Another school of prophets however, con- ends that January Is not the month and that the thunder must in February if frost Is to be expected In May. The first school of thought, the January idea, has plenty of thunder on which to base its prediction for May frosts. Thunderstorms ot July intensity swept over the Jerseyville vicinity several times Tuesday morning. Rainfall during Tueeday morning approached near cloud burst proportions In some part* of the county and many streams were sent to flood stage In a hurry. Mrs. Fred Prough, who'resides northeast of Jerseyville, reported that Phil's Creek was half bank when she came to Jerseyville early Tuesday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Tucker, who reside in the Fieldon vicinity, were In Jerseyville Tuesday morn- Ing and reported that small streams in that locality were rising rapidly. They reported that some roads were In rather bad condition, but most gravel and all weather surface highways were remaining in ftftr condition, In spite of the unusual winter weather conditions. Farmers who had reported earlier in the autumn that their wells were nearly dry, stated Tuesday that the water problem has been solved by the past week of rain In this vicinity. Wells were reported filling rapidly In most localities. Tuesday afternoon numerous complaints were being received from residents of some areas of Jerseyville that basements were flooded. M Leaves for Wisconsin JERSEYVILLE—Mr. and Mrs. Jersey Flowers Grow- Until Sleet Storm JERSEYVILLE, Jan. 4- (Speelal) — Early spring flowers of a bulbous nature were growing unusaliy large —until stalled by Tuesday's sleet storm. Snow drops ind hyacinths In sheltered spots are reported to be several inches in height. Plants of such species will withstand a lot of cold, which must necessarily ensue nt this season of the year. Though such early growth mny freeze away, floral spikes will come forth when warm spring weather arrives. «» Although asbestos is known to have been used many centuries ago, there were no asbestos mines In operation until about 100 years ago. Carl Borchers left Monday for their home in Watertown, Wls., after being guests since Friday at the home of Dr. and Mrs. B. A. Marsden and other Jerseyville friends. T,hey are enroute home from an extended visit in New Orleans, St. Petersburg, Miami, and other southern points.
