Crop Production Loans and
On Monday the Senate passed
finally the crop production loan
bill appropriating $40,000,000;
retired from cotton, wheat and
corn production on its hands this ^____
year. That is roughly one-fifth ,,| trade permits,
the total cultivated acres in the1
State. For what shull this land
be used? Wisely and legitimately
used these acres may mean much
to tiie farmer's welfare tins year.
Indifferently or illegally cropped
these fields may bring losses. If
handled with an eye to the fu-
ture it is possible that the re-ad-
justment in farming brought
about by the problem ot these re-
tired acres may lead to better
balanced long-time farm systems.

get in mind, extension workers
point out, is that laud is rented
in these contracts for the pur-
pose of getting it out of competi-
tive production. A mere shift to
other crops or other livestock
production is against the inter-
ests of farmers as a whole and is
just as illegal as it is possible for
