The large majority of the contracts covered In the listing are contract signers living on farms owned by insurance and loan (companies.

Mr. Schmidt showed me | a bunch of 27 South Dakota calves that he h\ad bought at the Ledyard stock yards a few weeks ago and although he said they looked pretty tough when he bought them they are nice looking calves now and should bring him a good price in the future. Stopped In at the I* C. Hfttten place which is northeast of Bancroft again the other day to see how they were coming with the new house and found it completed as far as the first coat of plaster -which was being put on. The buildings on this place are all new with the exception of the hog house which Is about three years old. Mr Hatten Is one of the corn-hog committee men and is busy these days measuring up farm land. Jess Hemphni and his son, who live northeast of Armstrong, were stacking pidgeon grass hay from contracted acres which had been seeded to sweet clover. Mr. Hemphlll remarked that the clover stand was good but seemed to be best on the high ground. I noticed they also had a fine stand of alfalfa in the oat stubble.

Dennis Capesfa% out east of W«t Bend was away plorrtng the day I called, but had a visit with the Mrs. and her father. The Capedus have a fine baby boy nearly three months old, the Mrs. stating he was a six pounder when born but weighing nearly fifteen now. so Dennis will soon have a hired man.

Of course they are regular readers of our paper. I also ran across Henry Hennickson near Ottoson. Henry looks as young aa ever. I hadn't seen him for about 15 years. H« says his daughter is teaching near Wesley. Intermlll and her son and daughter are carrying on with the job of farm- tag. They were shelling a crib of corn at the time and the son, John, was picking out a few of the best ears for seed for the coming year. H. J.

C., by W. A. Wheeler, member ->t the Forage Conservation Program, at a conference held in Kansas City, October 3, to the effect that any fodder contract signer will have the privilege of selling material at any time, to any buyer, and at whatever price he is able to obtain. This Interpretation will guarantee the signer a special privilege of disposing of his material at a higher price If he can obtain a buyer. Anyone having superior fodder would, In this case, have the privilege of selling it at a higher price, If a buyer Is available. He Is also given the privilege of shipping it by truck, or in any way advantageous to him. Anyone having signed a contract and then selling part of his tonnage but who still wants to be under the governments guarantee on the forage he retains, must report the sale of his tonnage to the Kansas City office. The government prices set are the prices the government will pay when It' takefe ovter the material left on hand April 1, providing the material meets the specifications. Any one selling material that is contracted to the government will have the privilege of federal inspection of his material sold through regular trade channels, if he so desires; every non-contract signer selling material will have the privilege of federal Inspection, but will be charged a fee. These new interpretations on conditions of the contract should help out the Forage Conservation Program, for they give the contract signers all the benefits of the doubt—they have everything to gain and nothing to lose by signing a contract.

The reason, as explained by A. o. Black, chief of the corn-hog section of the AAA, is that it may be desirable to increase hog production moderately during the next several years and also that farmers In the drought areas will want to rebuild reserves off I feeds The effect of the drought has 1 been to reduce feed supplies below normal and this is bringing about substantial adjustments In livestock num- l* II oroducers vote favorably on a control program for 1935, adjustment, administration officials will confer further with representatives of producers in developing details of a suitable contract and will offer this contract to producers for sign-up some time before the end of this year. Wherever possible the administration also artll speed up administrative procedure. Any program dealing with DD corn and hogs in 1935 would follow the general outline of the 1924 program but benefit payments would probably be somewhat larger for corn and materially less for hogs than under the program this year. Contracted acres could b2 used for any hay, pasture, forage fallow or woodlot purpose without restriction, but basic crops could not be produced ou contracted acres. HOTEL inneapoli* Dr. W. D.
