District ASC Officer Points Out
Difference Between Acreage
And Conservation Reserves
The Soil Bank has two parts
(1) Acreage Reserve (2) Conserva-
tion Reserve, and in this week’s
issue of the paper ASC office
- manager, John E. Owen is re-
leasing the following explanation
of the Conservation Reserve:
“All farm land regularly used
in the production of crops, in-
cluding crops such as tame hay
(defined as alfalfa and Bermuda
grass) which do not require an-
nual tillage is eligible for Con-
servation Reserve. The following
are excluded: (1) Non-cropland
used only for pasture (2) land
designated for Acreage Reserve
program, and (3) land owned by
the Federal Government.
The minimum acreage accept-
able in the Conservation Reserve
is five acres, except in special
cases, on small farms, the mini-
mum acceptable is one acre.
The National Conservation Re-
serve goal for 1957 is 20,000,000
acres which will be apportioned
among the various States. Goals
for later years will be announced
not later than Feb. 1 each year.
The total annual Conservation
Reserve payments to any produc-
er, for any year, and with respect
to all farms in which he has an
interest is limited to $5,000. This
limitation may be increased by
the Secretary of Agriculture in-
cases where the entire eligible
land in a farm is designated as
Acreage Reserve or Conservation
To participate in the Conserva-
tion Reserve program farmers
must sign contracts with the U. S.
Department of Agriculture through
their ASC Committees.
These contracts will be for three
to five years, at option of pro-
ducer, for land that is already in
approved cover crops. The con-

There are two kinds of Con-
servation Reserve Payments: cost-
sharing and annual.
Cost-sharing is a payment to
assist in the establishment of soil
and water conservation prac-
tices on the designated acreage.
The payment may be up to 80
percent of the cost of establish-
ing such practices, although State
and County ASC Committees - can
set lower rates. Contracts shall
be for at least five years where
a cost-sharing practice is approv-
ed for use on the conservation
An annual payment will be made
for the land in the Conservation
Reserve. This will be determined
by multiplying a per-acre rate
for the farm by the number of
acres in the Conservation Reserve.
The National average per-acre rate
is $10.* The Texas average per
acre rate is also set at $10.
A farm will be eligible for both
cost-sharing and the annual pay-
ment during the year a conserva-
tion practice is carried out. The
annual payment will be made each
year the contract is in force and
contract conditions are met”.
For further information concern-
ing the Conservation Reserve pro-
gram farmers are requested to

Nueces Coffee Co.
To Build New
The attention of the entire cof-
fee-roasting industry was focused
upon South Texas this week when
construction was started on a new
concrete, glass, and brick build-
ing for the Nueces Coffee Com-
The new, modern building of
contemporary design marks a de-
parture for the industry, which has
heretofore located their plants in
warehousing or heavy industrial
zones — usually in warehouse
This progressive step is primar-
ily due to a partial departure from
original coffee-roasting procedures
and the development of new ma-
chinery, according to Frank R.
Yarborough, President of the
Nueces Coffee Company, who
made the announcement this week.
However, Mr. Yarborough stat-
ed, this new plant for Nueces Cof-
fee Company marks the realiza-
tion of a thirty-year dream of the
Yarborough family. In 1927, W. O.
Yarborough, D. B. Yarborough and
J. L. Yarborough founded the com-
pany in Corpus Christi on faith
in the future of the area and
belief in the growth of port facili-

Cuts Values On
Gins and Wells
The Commissioners Court in re-
cent meetings with the ginners and
operators of irrigation wells in San
Patricio Co. set the assessed valu-
ation of the gins and wells. The
values were set considerably low-
er than last year.
The total assessed valuation of
the 21 gins* * * * 5- * 7 * * 10 runs to $220,000 while
that of the 41 irrigation wells was
set at $2,436.80 with the eight
wells on the Vahlsing farms in
the west end of the county ac-
counting for the major assess-
ment on the wells.
F. H. Vahlsing has eight of the
41 irrigation wells- in the county
and the rendered valuation of the
wells on his farm includes the
expense of the installation of the
machinery for the wells and dig-
ging of the various canals as
well as the actual costs of the
wells themselves. The other wells
are divided among a group of
farmers, no one of which owns
more than two of the remaining
Several of the wells were put
into operation after Jan. 1, 1956,
The assessed valuation of the
gins of the county is arrived at
ed and operated on a philosophy fnd therefore will not be include
that the best cup of coffee is in the tax rolls for the cuiren
the one that is roasted closest
to the user, and this credo was
actually engineered into this new
plant, company spokesman said.
The roasting process in the new
building is housed in a brick and
steel area with a 30 foot ceiling,
to permit all coffee-moving ma-
chinery to be on one floor. Cof-
fee is moved in this area through
pneumatic tubes by compressed
air, through the cleaning and
blending process to electrically
operated “magic-eye” ovens.
This particular innovation, which
is attracting the interest of the
industry, still permits the carefu)
blending of many coffee bean
grades which has been character-
istic of the company. This new
equipment was engineered to in-
sure individual control of every
roasting batch and is operated
without human contact with the
coffee from cleansing through the
by taking the book value of the
gins plus 20 per cent for salvage
and dividing that figure in half
for depreciation. This valuation of
the individual gins is on a life-
time basis value of the gin un-
less additional construction is
made or by a double gin being
reduced to a single gin. Jn either
event the assessed valuation will
then be changed of necessity.
The wells are assessed by well
rather than acreage serviced by
the said well and the assessment
is based on the cost of the well
plus the equipment.
Tax Office Working
Overtime To Get
Statements In Mail
Davis Vickers, tax assessor-col-
lector, and 14 of his deputies are
working several hours overtime,
at straight pay, compiling the tax
rolls with the compilation to be
completed sometime in October.
Heretofore extra clerks have
been employed to help with the
tax roll compilation, but in order
to expedite the work the tax as-
sessor and his deputies decided
to work four hours over time each
day and do the work themselves.
Vickers and his corps of work-
ers are in the office each week-
day evening from six to 10 o’clock,
with the group starting the extra
work on Monday of last week.
