Below are indicated both the of

ment applications, 304,197 acres;
three-year average—official 248,

"/ or 69,563 acres above the official
estimate. It will be noted that
the biggest difference between the
official and application figures is
for the year 1931 'when there was
an almost total crop failure. For
that year Sheridan county appli
cants report 107,000 more seeded
wheat acres than the official fig
ures for the entire county.
How to reconcile the discrepan
cy between crop estimate figures
and the application statements is
th big job facirig the county allot
ment committee. The Agricultur
al Adjustment Administration at
Washington says no state will be
permitted to run over its official
total for either acres or bushels.
Practically all county figures sub
mitted to the State Board of Re
(Continued from Front Page)
view show an over run of acres
but less bushels than the official
estimate. Sheridan county appli
cants indicate a three-year aver
age production of 1,796,367 bush
els as against 1,742,267 bushels by
the Bureau of Crop Estimates for
the same period. The same con
ditions seem to prevail in the
southwestern states particularly
wherever the county average plan
based upon seeded acreage ie
adopted 1 .
What is worrying the Wheat
Administration now is that unless
the 'wheat acreage indicated in the
wheat allotment contracts is some
where near the official figures the
total reduction in acreage over the
United States will not be large
enough to materially reduce the

iiJdependent review for the pur
following are fourni some of the
common causes of over run:
1 . Growers may report their acre
age f l ul1 for wU ° : ® ? r half , 8ec :
tiors where parts of this land
^ Mt [ b , ^ IarmM
„ Gei - e iallv no ir * oiicns have

been made for fences, headlands or
3 . Some instances indicate that
thc farmer has seeded wheat on
^he same piece of land lor six con
tinuous years in the same amount
eac j, year .
4. Possibly the drill measure
m6 % j* no t always correct. For
instance a Texas applicant had
been hiring a certain field plowed
and paid for 300 acres each year
and yet when« this field
chained contained only 260 acres.
The Allotment Committee could,
of course, make a flat reduction
fur all farms but that would pona
lire those farmers who turned in
a correct acreage, hence necessity
of carefully checking each appli
cation. This week every paper in .
the county will carry a supple
rlp C ;"UoTave Cte aJplU f
for ailotm« contracts This ita
■s arranged alphabetically by com
munit, es and applicants and is ex
actly the earn« data as contained
in the original application except
where the applicant himself has
renuested to change the fie-nres
The purpose of the published list
is to acquaint ever,, one with the
acreage and production given in, :
bv not only themselves but also
that of their neighbors. Seven
daye time will he allowed from
the date of publication for com
plaints or voluntary adjustments
before Ihe Allotment Committee
will do their own adjusting.
Tn conclusion/, it appears that
Sheridan county over run 27 per
cent in seeded acreage and the
most of this occured in 1931, the
general crop failure year.
