BEAR EIYEE YALLET TREMONTON, UTAH, THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 1933 VOLUME EIGHT FIRST WHEAT PLAN FOURTH ANNUAL S PAYMENT WILL BE WHEAT DAY SET HOLD REGULAR 20 CENTS A BUSHEL FOR AUGUST 19 MEETING MON. Wheat adjustment contracts will of- COMMISSIONERS fer farmers 20 cents a bushel this fall and either 8 or 10 cents a bushel next spring on an allotment of 54 per cent of the average past production, in return for acreage reduction pledged, Director William Peterson, manager of the agricultural adjustment administration for Utah announces. In the contract the farmers will be asked to agree to reduce acreage planted for the 1934 and 1935 crops by the percentage that the secretary of agriculture may declare necessary to control production adequately, but in no case, will a farmer be asked to reduce more than 20 per cent of his average planted acreage for the last three years. If all wheat farmers of Utah accepted the plan ,the first payment would require approximately $599,810. Secretary Wallace has made public an estimate that the taxable consumption of wheat in the United States for the next year under the processing tax which was put into effect July 9, will amount to 400,000,000 bushels. The total tax from this source will be $138,000,000 for the year, administration officials estimate. The second payment to be made next spring after farmers have given evidence that they have reduced acreage, will be for not less than 8 cents, nor more than 10 cents a bushel on the allotment, less local administrative costs. Administration officials decidreserve in the second ed on the payment in order to insure them freedom of action if the opportunity arises to help wheat growers by opening up new export markets. If no such opportunity is found, the second payment will be made on the basis. First checks will be mailed as soon as county wheat production control associations are organized to administer the wheat plan locally, and complete the farm allotments.

The various committees in charge of the big day this year are rapidly completing their plana to make this celebration the biggest and best yet attempted by the Garland Lions club, which organization sponsors this yearly event. Box Elder county produces nearly of the total annual output of wheat in Utah, and it is fitting that such a celebration be staged in North Box Elder county, the heart of the wheat section! With the Federal allotment plan going into effect this year, the interest in this crop is more intense than usual, and it is planned to make available to growers the complete details of this plan at the meeting at the tabernacle. The festivities of the day begin at sunrise, with a salute, followed closely by a band concert. At 10:30 a. m. the big meeting will be held at the tabernacle, with special music and entertainment to aud interest to the feature event of the program, the scheduled talk by Prof. William Peterson of the A. C. Prof. Peterson has been ap pointed by President Roosevelt as Director of the Federal allotment plan for this state, and is thoroughly far miliar with the details of the plan. His talk will clarify the situation for those growers who are still uninformed as to this plan, which includes curtail ment of wheat acreage, coupled with a 30 per cent per bushel payment to those who join the plan. Following this meeting, the afternoon's festivities will start off with a bang at the city park, where the contest will take place on the local diamond between the Garland and Willard baseball teams. Garland won the North Box Elder Farm Bureau championship without the loss of a game. Willard wfift, hands down, in the first half of the Southern league and is tied for first place in the second half with Mantua. July 24 the Willard team trimmed Garland in a hotly contested game at Bear River City. A few days later Mantua defeated Willard. Last Sunday Garland took Mantua into camp to the tune of 16-In terest in this game is at fever heat, and a battle royal is a certainty. The afternoon events include the widely heralded rodeo a bucking contest with the famous J. Y, Rich string of horses. The big spot on the rodeo program is expected to be the bucking contest, open to all comers, with the notorious Black Diamond. The man who successfully rides this horse, if any, will win a purse of $50.00. This particular feature is expected to bring to Garland a number of famous riders. The total purse for the rodeo amounts to $125.00. Five fast boxing bouts will follow the rodeo on the program at the park, and boxing fans are assured of a card that will be worth the full price of admission in itself. Incidentally, the morning meeting is free, the events at the park all may be seen for one admission of 50c. In the evening the big barn dance will be held at the Farmers National warehouse, with good music and a good time assured everyone.

August 21st to 26th is the date set this year for that purpose. Learn to Swim week is under the direction of the Red Cross Life Saving committee, with W. D. Cummings, local chairman; Horace Richards, local chairman of boy scouts and C. J. Dewey, stake supt. Y. M. M. I. A. Mr. Udy, manager of the Udy Hot Springs, is giving the free use of his pool and furnishing a Red Cross instructor who has been trained in swimming and life saving by the Red Cross organization. The cost of registration is 10 cents. The pool is free and the instruction is free. To those who furnish their own suits and towels there is no other charge than the 10 cents registration fee. Those who need bathing suits and towels may rent them for 10 cents each time or for the six days for 50 cents. Instruction will be given in the following: 1. Beginners Every day from 8 a. m. to 10 a. m. 2. Junior Red Cross Life Saving and improvement of strokes to those who know how to swim from 2 p. m. to 3 p. m. 3. Adults 3 p. m. to 4 p. m. 4.

Westmoreland was injured early Sunday morning, is evidently taken from a Wyoming newspaper, the date and name is not on the clipping mailed to the Leader. Mr. Westmoreland is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Westmoreland of this city. Recent reports are to the effect that Mr. Westmoreland is recovering from his injuries. "An automobile accident happened on the curve entering the east end of town this morning between the hours of 1 and 2 o'clock, when a car returning from the Island Park dance to Rock Springs, containing seven young pople, while endeavoring to pass another car on the curve, crashed into a car driven by R. W. Westmoreland, with Miss Margaret Kephart and Teddy Peterson as passengers. The two cars were badly wrecked, while everyone in the Rock Springs car were more or less injured, one young lady being so badly hurt that she was rushed to the hospital for treatment after receiving aid from the local doctor. We are unable at this writing to learn definitely the names of the occupants of the Rock Springs car. "Mr. Westmoreland suffered a badly cut eye and face, while Teddy Peterson suffered several scratches. Miss Kephart escaped with a badly cut finger. Considering the condition of the two cars, it is most remarkable that the occupants escaped death. The cars which are at the Thompsen Motor Co., are a total wreck. SCHOOL NOTICE The students of the Bear River high at the school house any evening of the week of August 14th to 19th to check their registration for the ensuing year. A few changes have been made in the faculty and in the program which necessitates some changes in registration. school are asked to call Many Farms Are Over Loaned, Cannot Borrow More Reduction or "scale-dowof farmers' obligations has become an important subject for discussion in connection with farm finance relief being administered under the Emergency Farm Mortgage Act of (May 12) 1933. n The necessity for the in many cases was explained by William II. Woolf, Agent of Land Bank Commissioner for the States of California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah, who said that a study of applications shows that many of the farmers applying for loans are in such bad financial position that they are virtually insolvent and that there must be a scaling down on the part of the farmers' creditors to a poinfc where the fanner will have an equity of at least 25 of the value of the farm property before the Agent of the Land Bank Commissioner can make a loan, "I want to state clearly," said Mr. Woolf, "that the Commissioner's Agent is neither a court nor a mediator between the farmers and their s. credieors in effecting these The conditions under which the Commissioner loans may be made are clearly established and it is entirely up to the farmer and his creditors to arrive at an egreement that will meet established conditions if a loan is to be made. "Creditors should observe that it is to their advantage to allow a reduction of obligations in cases where loans could not otherwise be allowed, for, if n will enable a loan to be a passed it usually means that there will be cash available for the creditor that could not be obtained from other sources. "The law under which the Farm, Credit Administration and the Land Bank Commissioner function has designated what is a farm and who is a farmer and it is intended that agricultural relief derived from Commissioner loans shall be extended to those who come under the classification of farmers, as refined in the law. If you desire a loan on property which is used for purposes your application should be filed with one of the relief agencies other than the Land Bank Commissioner. "Loans by the Land Bank Commissioner may be made up to $5,000 to one person and may be made for as much as 75 per cent of the appraised value of the real and personal property of the applicant. "The appraised value is determined after an appraiser designated by the Land Bank Commissioner has visited the property. Applicants should be e careful not to their property at the time of filling out applications, for no loan can be made for more than 75 of the fair normal value and if loans are requested on the basis of it will be necessary to figure out some way to reduce the amount of the request if loan is to be granted." Additional Information It is expected that generally these loans will be made on second mortgages on farm real estate, supplemented by mortgages on farm livestock and other personal property. Payments on the loans may be made The law annually or provides that during the first 3 years a loan is in effect a borrower will not be required to make payment on the principal if he is not otherwise in default with respect to any other condition or covenant of his mortgage. At the expiration of this 3 year period payments on principal equal in amount must be made with each annual or interest payment which will extinguish the debt within an agreed period. The interest rate charged on these loans will be 4J per cent if application is made through an. agent of the Farm Loan Commissioner, otherwise it will be 5 per cent. In addition to the above class of loans there is the Federal Farm Loan, and the Emergency Farm Mortgage Act (of May 12, 1933) also provides that in case of Federal Farm Loans the interest rate charges shall be 4i per cent during a period of five years. Hoping that the foregoing will be of interest to farm property owners, who are considering refinancing their present mortgages and taking advantage of an easier rate of interest.
