13-Algono, (lo.) Upper DM Mo!ne< Thurtdoy, Morth JS, IMS New Post For Local Phone Deadline Is March 26 For Co. Employee Farm Signup Friday, March 26, is the last day growers may file applications to take part in the 1965 feed grain program, R. I. Anderson, chairman of the Kossuth County ASC committee, said today. He reminded farmers thatonh those who participate in the feed grain program will lv> elipible for price support on their 19&r> corn, liar ley, and prain sorphum crops. Besides qualifying for price support, the participating grower also earns a diversion paunent for shifting part of his feed grain base to a conserving use. Minimum diversion is 20 percent of the individual farm's lotah feed grain base. Maximum diversion is 50 percent of the !>ase or 2f> acres if this is more. For diverting more than the minimum, the diversion payment will be figured at a higher rate. If the actual diversion is •]() percent or more, the higher rate applies to the entire diversion. The chairman reports tliat farmer interest in Kossuth county is high. Indications are that 19G5 participants will equal that under the 19G4 feed grain program. He urges farmers who are interested in taking part in this year's program to call at the ASCS county office as soon as possible, since there are only a few working days left before the March 2G signup deadline. "We don't want anybody to be disappointed because he waited too long," the chairman said. "There's also the advantage of being able to get half of the estimated diversion payment in advance at the time of signup or as soon thereafter as possible." The ASCS county office is open from 8:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. from Monday through Friday. It is located in the USDA building on North Main Street in Algona, Iowa.

Winter Won't Move Out - Winter refused to budge this week - as frigid temperature readings followed the latest blizzard into Kossuth county. The mercury dipped below zero three times during the period, with a low of -4 registered Sunday morning. The high during the week was the same day when it got up to 23. Then, to make things complete (but who needs it ?), another 31/2 Inches of frozen condensed water (snow) came during a heavy downpour Monday afternoon and evening. Fortunately (at least for the time being), it stopped then before too much damage had been done. Weather forecasters warned Tuesday it was possible another snow storm is in the offing and could hit the area this week. The southern reaches of Iowa got most of the latest fling. Here are the readings: H 7 18 16 23 18 L S 3 4" -1 0 -4 10 -1 3 1/2" Mar. 18 Mar. 19 Mar. 20 Mar. 21 'Mar. 22 Mar. 23 Most area residents are now hoping for a slow thaw, which could greatly alleviate somewhat the threat of a serious flood in the area.
