S, GOVERNMENT DIRECTOR OUTLINES PLANS FOR UTAH WHEAT ADJUSTMENT It will be to the wheat growers advantage to sign a contract with the government to curtail the production of wheat, according to Director William lererson of the Utah State Agricultural ea liege, who, has been named manager of the federal agricultural emergency act for Utah. Withim a few days the majority ol wheat growers in this state will have had an opportunity of hearing the domestic allotment plan explained by letleral, state or local represent a then, Director leterson said, as meetings have been lielil anil are being pluamed to cover the principal areas. The mam provisions of the plan, as outlined by the state manager, follow: County or district organizations will be effected to handle the machinery of the plan. The comity agricultural agent or some one designated by the state manager will be secretary of each local. Wheat growers will then be given an opportunity to join one of the organisations and sign contracts pledging themselves to restrict the acreage they will plant to wheat in 11)34 mid 103,5, according to the decree of the secretary of agriculture, which will not cull for more than 20 per cent reduction. In recognition of this contract the government will pay each wheat grow er 30 cents a bushel for of his wheat crop- for 1030, 1031,' and 1032. based on the average of the farmer for the iiast three-yea- r period. There will be no curtailment on the 1033 crop but the coinimiission will be forthcoming this year with a payment in September and another when the contract is fulfilled, provided a contract has been signed with the govPeterson said. ernment, Director of wheat There will be no to be sold, nor will the government collect any wheat. Land thrown out of wheat production may be fallowed or planted to forage crops for domestic consumption. The government will not rent this land. . If a farmer breaks his contract heg five-eigh- ts - price-fixin- g liecomos a borrower ' of wliat has been paid to him in commissions and he must return this amount to the government. For further details ask a county agent or write to the Extension Service, Logan, Utah. EACH GROOER ASKED TO GET WHEAT RECORDS By compiling records now on how much wheat they planted and produced in the last three years, farm ers am speed up the Government's adjustment program, says Director William Peterson, in charge of the agricultural adjustment administrn. tion in Utah. Past production records of each farmer are needed to determine the allotment of each. lie suggests that wheat farmers get the following information ready now : Number of bushels grown each year from 1030 to 1032. of wheat planted Number of acx-efor the crop of each of these years. All that is needed is the total number of bushels of wheat grown on each farm. It all counts in a farmer's total production for the purpose of the wheat program, whether it has been spring or winter wheat. If a farmer lias moved from one farm to another in the three year period, he should make a separate record of the wheat grown on each farm. If he has operated more than one farm, he should also liarp the information for each of them. By using elevator, freight, threshing or bank deposit records, tins Administration .believes that each farm cam get accurate estimates. Each farmer will later be staked for and the records on past production number of acres planted to wheat in the last three years. The comity association will use these to 'determine allotment. each farmers Figures turned in li.v each farmer are to be published in the local press. Director Petersnn emphasizes that the allotment to each county is computed from official records at Washington, D. C. and is all the county can get. It is up to the farmers, through tlioir county association, to divide it fairly among themselves. For .further information consult a ooniitv agent or write to the Extension Service office at Logan. s Runs Financing Institutions With Investment of Two Billion Dollars Thirty-n- Agricultural MERICAS biggest banker today is the Federal Government, which is now' operating financing institutions, says Professor John Hanna of Columbia University in the American Bankers Association Journal.

Thirty-seveready a are intended to be permanent. of the permanent ones and Twenty-fivfourteen of the temporary ones are agricultural.

Resources of these institutions exIn addition the ceed $3,000,000,000 Government has detailed supervision over mortgage banks, operating under Federal charter. "The Government also supervises 4,000 local agricultural loan associations with Federal charters. All this takes no account of the relations of the Government to the twelve Federal Reserve banks, nor of the authority recently given to the Reconstruction Finance Corporation to buy preferred stock in nationaUand state commercial banks. The President has ordered the consolidation of the agricultural .credit agencies into the new Farm Credit Administration, says Professor Hanna, lie expresses the opinion that before the consolidation of the agricultural financing agencies too much machinery A fifty-tw- o two-thir- n e e fifty-on- a financing institutions which the Government either owns or supervises. "Existin; institutions represent a considerable differentiation of function and any consolidations should be preceded by a careful survey of the actual activities of the various instituThe only contions, he continues. solidation the Administration has is that of the agricultural credit agencies in the Farm Credit Administration As a permanent solution this arrangement i too closely bound up with politics. A better scheme would be to create a finance corporation under Federal charter to take over either the agricultural finance activities of the Government or all its leading agencies. The Governments financing and banking activities should be kept severely apart from subsidy and other schemes for raising the prices of farm products. One is business, the other is major political policy. The advantages of the corporation over bureau control for the business functions are real and significant.

Do you know why a youth trys to court the best looking girl in town, when his task would ,be much easier Do yon with a less beautiful one know why a man buys the best looking car lie can afford when a less attractive one would take him just as far?

Do you know that such a scene could never be possible if the Romeo in the drama of real life had shaggy hair and bushy whiskers? Do you know a woman admires and falls in love with a man because his manly cleanliness and attractive bearing impresses her? Do you know that a man still expects tiie woman who married him, because the personal pnde he expressed thru his neat ap pearance atti acted her. to show the game degree of warmth toward him, even though he has allowed himself to become slothful and careless with his Do you know hair and whiskers? that a man admires beauty in everything and is willing to pay high to gratify that inherent taste for things he desires- - most : but is reluctant to s a month on liis head, attend the most valuable of his possessions?
