Wheat Plan
Brings Cash
To Farmers
For Grower This Year Who
Take Part in Adjustment
(Editor's Note—Following is an arti-
cle that explains more fully the plan
by which it is hoped farmers will
ceive a better price for their wheat,
under the new Roosevelt legislation.)
BOZEMAN, June 28.—Cash benefits
will be paid to Montana wheat farm
ers this fall probably by September
15, under the plan with which the
Agricultural Adjustment Administra
tion has decided to make the farm act
effective for wheat this year.
Montana ranks fifth in wheat pro
duction, the records of the U. S. de
partment of agriculture show. In the
five-year period, 1928-32, it produced
on an average 45,167,000 bushels
planted on the average, 4,536,600
The wheat adjustment program pro
vides for payirtg cash benefits Ho farm
ers on the basis of the percentage of
their average wheat crop for the past
three years, which is domestically con
sumed as food, upon agreement of
farmers to reduce their acreages. Pro
cessing taxes are to be levied to pay
the costs.
Will Pay Cash Benefits.
The plan will be to pay cash benefits
each year on the allotments of each
farmer for 1933, 1934, and 1935, pro
vided the farmer agrees to reduce his
planted acreage for the 1934 and 1935
crops by a percentage that will subse
quently be determined by the secre
tary of agriculture, but will not be
more than 20 per cent of the average
acreage planted by the farmer in the
three years.
Only an exceptionally bad season has
reduced the prospective crop for this
year, and the adjustment administra
tion decided to put the plan in effect at
once because of the existence of a car
ryover three times normal and be
cause heavy surpluses might result
from normal yields in 1934 on only an
average" planted -acreage. Theyrexpect
to pay two-thirds of the benefit this
fall, and the remainder next spring af
ter the planting season.
M. L. Wilson, Montana Agricultural
College professor in recent years, but
who qualified as a true dirt fanner
by homesteading in Nebraska when he
was 21, is in charge of the wheat ad
justment program and will actively di
rect the preliminary organization which
must take place before benefits can be
gotten to the farmers. Mr. Wilson will
work with George N. Peck and Charles
J. Brand, administrators; and Chester
C, Davis, director of production con
Approximately a million participating
wheat farmers should be affected by
the program. The administration wiU
be thoroughly decentralized, with
farmers organizing their own county
committees to take charge of local de
tails of administration. These county
groups will be the key units in the
whole scheme, and the farmers will
choose their own men to handle the
county program. Each county group
will pay its own expenses, to be
charged to each farmer according to
his allotment The more economically
the local unit is operated, the less it
will cost the farmers in that county.
Explains Plan.
The average amount of wheat that
famers have grown in the last three
years will determine the basis of their
allotments, Mr. Wilson says. The gov
ernment has official records on state
and county production. Averages for
the crop years 1928 to 1932 will be com
puted, and upon this average produc
tion and acreage the allotment for
each county will be made. After the
allotment is made to each county, the
county committee, chosen by fanners
themselves at community meetings,
will have each farmer list his wheat
acreage and production for the last
years. committee will taxe
an average of this, and then allot to
each farmer his proportionate share of
the amount allotted to the county.
Thus, the steps to be taken by the
wheat farmer who wishes to partici
pate in the plan are to join his local
organization as soon as it is formed,
turn in the figures on his production
and acreage planted for the last three
years, and agree to reduce his acre
age by the desired amount, in no case
more than 20 per cent of his three
year average.
In return, the farmer will receive
an allotment which is the same pro
portion to his average production as
the total wheat domestically con
sumed in this country for food is to
the total wheat grown. This allot
ment will be in bushels. On this al
lotted number of bushels, he will re
ceive a cash benefit from funds raised
by a processing tax levied on tRe basis
of the relationship between, present
price and parity price of the pre-war
period. It is estimated that about 30
cents per bushel will be paid, two
thirds by September 15 and,, the re
maining third in the spring of 1934.
To obtain the benefit the farmer must
plant his crop in the ordinary manner,
but if it is hailed out, dried out, blown
out, or otherwise destroyed by nature,
he will receive his benefit just the

Camperg and Smokers Responsible

'Remember your shovel, axe and
bucket," is the word going out to-day
to everyone who intends to visit the
national forests by car or pack train
this summer.
''After July 1 the carrying of
shovel, ax and bucket per car or pack
train is required of all parties enter
ing the national forests of Montana,
northern Idaho, and eastern Washing
ton," says Evan W. Kelley, regional
forester at Missoula.
"This requirement, which has been
in effect for the past few years," he
adds, "has been a definite factor in
curtailing man-caused forest fires. In
many cases persons traveling over for
est roads have been able to put out
fires which were yet small enough to
be handled by quick action on the part
of one or two persons equipped with
these tools. Dirt is thrown on the
flames with the shovel. Where water
is available, a bucketful often turns
the trick. The ax is handy for trim
ming out brush and small trees in
Even if such a fire emergency
arises, the tools are useful about camp,

travelers. The shovel is, in fact, almost
dispensible in making a safe place

out properly before leaving. And both
shovel and ax come in mighty handy
in case a car gets off the road or into

So, "Remember your shovel, ax and
water bucket beginning July 1," is the
timely warning now being issued.

It is entirely up to him. The plan is
not a price-fixing measure.
While the measure is designed to
help the wheat farmer get a fair re

The Federal Home Loan Bank wan

homes of home owners where they

4 per cent interest.
Managers will be appointed in each
state and to secure a loan one makes
application to his state manager. If
the man w^ose home is mortgaged can,
induce the holder of the mortgage to
take bonds in payment of the mort

loan him the required money, up to
80 per cent of the valuation of the

owner will then have a long-term loan
with small payments,
If the mortgage holder refuses to
take the bonds and if the mortgage

exceed 40 per cent of the value of the
