I. Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee. The chairman reported the following Kossuth county sign-up totals: Operators have signed up a total of 2,363 farms, accounting for 239,714 acres of the county's total 294,716 acres of corn- sorghum base acreage. Estimated total diversion intended on signed farms is 67,608 acres, with 19,177 of these acres to be diverted for pay. Operators have signed up 168 wheat farms (84 percent of the county's total wheat farms) with allotments of 1,230 acres. The county's total wheat allotment is 1,483 acres. Producers who want loans on 1967 crops should request such loans at the ASCS county office by the end of March, according to R. I. Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee. Final dates for requesting price-support loans are approximately 30 days prior to the particular loan maturity date. If the crop is not placed under loan, it may be sold to the Commodity Credit Corporation by notifying the ASCS county office before the loan maturity date. Growers who are considering the reseal of 1967 crops under loan — either on farms or in commercial warehouses - also should file a request for extension of such loans. The chairman pointed out that the price-support loans make it possible for farmers to market their crops when prices are most favorable. Crops may be redeemed from loans at any time prior to maturity by paying off the loan plus interest. Wesleyan And Algerians At Cattle Congress WESLEY - Ben G.
