^-THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texas, Thursday, March 19, 1942 'Dial 4343 For ;TJr« Avafancfi'a»Journal Office* /Ttirle Conditions Must Be Met iByThe Dnited PrfSsl _ W A S H INGTON, March 18 — The-; Agriculture department announced today that fpnners may harvest a p p r oximatcly 3,000,000 acres of volunteer winter wheat this year without penalty provided they meet conditions prescribed to prevent a market glut. The depart ment established three conditions which growers ir.ust meet to receive AAA benefits on farms producing volunteer wheat—wheat grown from seeds scattered in harvesting the 1941 crop. Musi Stoct It These conditions were that their acre age of additional seeded wheat is within the 1942 allotment; that they store volunteer wheat on the farm as long as it is subject to a marketing quota penalty; and that they seed within their 1943 acreage allotment In previous years the department ruled that no destruction could be made between volunteer and seeded wheat in determining compliance with AAA allotments. The department, however, urged farmers to pasture, or cut lor hay, wheat needed for livestock feed this year. The volunteer wheat will be eligible for government loans at 50 per cent of the usual rate. Far mers who grow volunteer wheat will not receive government benefit payments until after they have compiled with 1943 acreage allotments. Most of the volunteer wheat is in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.

The postmaster's primary interest in the matter, he explained, was to nail a rumor that is "as false as any rumor could be." It was revealed, however, that reports of the rumors have been WHAT CAUSES YOUR CONSTIPATION? • J f* n ^ ? e °P 1 « Ioo » upon ronitlpitlon u jtut «. f»Uure of r« E ul.r bowel movement. j ° v " i ' d Rre to cmuiej thit often jour need* may b. t or tomcthSnz which notonlr fi'7" coaitipitioa but »Uo act* u m 1 'Jto w»k« up tha flow of bile.
