Sugar Registration a Big Job In County KOSSUTH COUNTY FARMERS TO VOTE ON WHEAT QUOTA Referendum to be Held on May 2. Local AAA Offices to Hold Polling for the County , Kossuth county farmers, In fact all Iowa farmers, corn as well as ( wheat producers, have a vital in- i tares t in the outcome of the second national wheat marketing quota referendum vote on May 2, according to Robert M. Loss, Kossuth "' vote on the Kossuth referendum Will be' conducted by secret 'ballot nt the AAA office in Algona and .county Committeemen will serve as 'judges and clerks of the balloting. Farmers Should 'Approve "If the nation's wheat farmers fall to approve marketing quotas for the 1942 crop it will mean that no wheat loans will J>e available. .Without the support ot these loans ,a sharp drop ire the wheat market l can logically be expected, and in order to compete, with .cheap wheat for the feed grain market, the .price of corn would be forced down, with the result that both the wheat and corn producers would suffer," Mr. Loss said. (Loss reported that approximately 10,000. Iowa farmers and landlords will be, eligible to vote in the quota referen'dum.on May 2, and declared that these voters' have ah obligation to agriculture as a whole to keep wheat production' in balancr in order that the surplus supplies will not threaten the entire farm price structure and the nation's agricultural war production effort. 204,000 Acres In Wheat low&'s 1941 wheat production of 2,913,000 bushels may seem- insignificant in comparison to rational production, but the diversion of part of the 204,000 acres planted to Wheat in the state last year to vital war crops will enable farmers of the state to increase their contribution to war production by growing 'more soybeans^ flax, and commercial vegetables. % While Iowa's 1942 wheat acreage is already seeded, and barring adverse weather conditions a crop assured, the continuation' of quotas is important to the orderly marketing of the crop, and the maintenance of fair prices for producers through commodity loans. "Regulations governing eligibility for voting on the quota referendum are the same this year as they were a year ftgo," Loss said, "with every wheat -producer who has an allotment of 15 acres or more qualified to participate.
