Burdick of North Dakota as H. R. 3471 will be one of the major pieces of farm legislation to be considered by the farmers emergency relief conference. Congressman Burdick i3 president of the North Dakota Holiday Association. This bill includes a provision to cancel all the debts which threaten the possession of home, farm or equipment of any "working" farmer. Cancellation of debts is a much discussed subject and will be one of tne major questions brought up during the conference. 13,000,000.000 dollars worth of farm debts speak for themselves. Even the most optimistic of prophets knows that these debts can never be paid. As farmers write to us: "I have talked to many farmers and business men and in their judgment and mine too we think the government should cancel these debts. It's a burden they cannot carry along with other obligations and live Not that the farmer won't pay but he can't. The problem is will these debts be cancelled before the small farmer is completely wiped out? before the creditor has seized all of his equity, his farm and equipment, his home, and the entire product of his vears of kS- hjvW .rv-e Mv. ikMXb 1 mm?

Additional acreage for 1935 of not over 75 per cent of the base can be planted. Contracted acreage is still required. Limitations on other farms not under contract, still holds. The second payment of 1935 goes to parties on farm in 1936. In Box Elder county, as In many other parts, this liberalization will, no doubt ,not greatly assist the winter wheat grower, but, on the other hand, it is an additional, liberal privilege to the producer of spring wheat. It would also look like the grower of winter wheat can benefit by planting wheat, corn, barley or some crop this spring to some advantage, if he expects to be short on food for his livestock next winter. How many producers will be willing to sign up agreeing to reduce acreage in 1935 to the extent of their this year and in addition to this they will be required to wait for their final 1935 payment until the summer of 1936 when they have proven compliance. It is the opinion of the local Wheat Production Control Association that Box Elder county farmers will and should follow strictly to" the terms of the contract now in force instead of overplanting this year and causing complications on their contract that will undoubtedly delay subsequent payments. About 70 contracts on which irregularities appeared in our county last year, the final 1933 and first 1934 payments have not been received to this date. Full instructions have not reached us yet. The forms and instructions are expected soon. Watch the 'newspapers for further County Attorney Lewis Jones Friday in a hearing in the district court at Brigham Friday whereby certain lands could be condemned so that the state road commission could adver tise for bids and proceed with the construction of the highway through this property. This spirit of cooperation on the part of residents of Deweyville will make it possible for the work to commence much sooner than otherwise. The proposed new road, which goes through some of the residential property in Deweyville ,is the second lap of the project started last year for an oiled highway from Brigham City to Cache county line, via Beaver Dam. information- - -- Stake Genealogical Convention to be Held Sunday, 31 A stake genealogical convention will be held Sunday at the stake tabernacle.

Allotted acreage not contracted for by April 1 will be released to a na- tional reserve for to other districts the Sugar Section an- nounced. This general procedure has been approved by representatives of both producers and processors. t The period in which processors for acreage has been extended in order to give opportunity to complete contracting in all districts In which there has been delay. Allotments have already been made to districts and to individual producers. of acreage not contracted for by April 1 is planned in order that the sugar beet industry for the country as a whole may have ample opportunity to plant sufficient acreage to produce, with average yields, the 1935 marketing allotment of 1,550,000 short tons of sugar. In addition to providing for of acreage not placed under contract, the sugar been program calls for of any acreage under purchase contract, which is not planted by a certain date. The schedule of closing dates on planting of this acreage is to be worked out for each of the various districts by rep- resentatives of the Sugar Section, processors, the county agents, and the district production control committees., An order from the sugar production administration, as above ,1s extending the time for the final report of contracted acreage until April first. "Previously the sugar companies had been ordered to report old and new growers," says Orson A. Christensen, "to determine if any acreage in excess of the district was remaining to be moved to districts desiring more than their allotment of acreage. "Retarded planting season and storms makes the extension possible. Furthermore," says Mr. Christensen, "the administration desires to give each district full opportunity to take as near its allotted acreage as it can use to the end of the plan ting "seamay-contrac- 'Re-allotme- nt son.
