Farmers Sign For
1940 Wheat Program
Approximately 70.9 per cent of
the 2724 winter wheat grow’ers in
Allen county have signed up to par
ticipate in the 1940 AAA Farm Pro
gram for wheat, according to Clair
A. Patterson, Chairman of the Allen
County AAA Committee.
Mr. Patterson said this indicates a
participation for the county in the
1940 wheat program about 34 per
cent greater than in 1939.
Farmers have indicated they plan
to participate in the 1940 program
by signing the wheat plan for par
ticipation in 1940, which each farmer
works out with his AAA community
committeeman. Committeemen visit
ed all wheat farmers in the county
to explain the AAA wheat program
to them.

plan 1672 have designated their in
tention of planting within their
wheat acreage allotments. This will
make them eligible for the Agricul
tural Conservation payment on
wheat, the wheat parity payment,
and the 1940 loan in case it is offer
In another group are 259 wheat
growers who have elected the non
wheat allotment option under the
1940 program. On their farms
wheat that is harvested or matured
as grain will be checked against
their allotments, but any wheat used
for pasture or green manure will not
be checked against their allotments.
In addition, the payments to farmers
in this group who have allotments of
less than 10 acres will be reduced
only if the wheat matured as grain
exceeds 10 acres. Election of the
nonwheat allotment option disquali
fies the farm for 1940 wheat parity
payments and the 1940 wheat loan,
and conservation payments on the
wheat allotment acreage are made
at the rate for general crops instead
of the wheat rate.
A farmer who failed to sign the
wheat plan automatically takes the
wheat allotment classification, and all
wheat he plants for any purpose will
be counted as part of his farm’s
wheat acreage. He will receive no
wheat parity payment, but by plant
ing within his allotment, he may re
ceive the agricultural conservation
payment for w’heat, and he will be
eligible for a wheat loan.
For Ohio as a whole, 127,496 or
76 percent of the winter wheat
growers have already signed to par
ticipate in the 1940 wheat program.
In the North Central Region, officials
estimate on the basis of the present
sign-up that about 75 percent of all
winter wheat growers will partici
pate in the program.
Ohio bees in a single-story hive
will need the equivalent of seven full
frames of honey for winter stores.
Colonies in two-story hives will need
50 pounds of honey, most of it in the
upper story. Clover honey is ex
cellent for winter stores, and fall
gathered honey will be satisfactory
this year because its density is un
usually high.

Out of all the research work done
by the various states and by the
United States Department of Agri
culture, one of the findings least
open to debate is that a bull is 50
per cent or more of a dairy herd.
This fact applies whether heifers are
raised or bought but in the latter
case, the buyer must depend upon
the seller’s ability to select herd
Domesticated cattle have been kept
for thousands of years but the spec
ialization of cattle into types adapted
for special purposes is a compara
tively recent advance in animal hus
bandry. Few farmers will dispute
that the use of a black bull in a
herd of white cows will result in
color variations in the calves but the
same men apparently believe that
the ability to produce milk and but
terfat profitably is not changed by
an admixture of blood strains from
beef animals.
Reports from herd improvement
associations in Ohio show that a few
members replace grade or scrub herd
sires each month with purebred
animals. The presence of such bulls
in the associations indicates there
must be thousands of them in herds
whose owners are not members.
There is no excuse for the use of
scrub sires when purebreds can be
bought at a reasonable price. Own
ers of small herds can combine re
sources and buy a purebred as a
partnership venture. Mr. Blackman
believes it is much better to get the
benefits from owning a purebred sire
at a moderate cost than to lose an
equal amount or more by raising
heifers of doubtful ability from
grade and scrub sires.
The University specialist does not
claim that every purebred is a profit
able animal, but he maintains that
the chance of efficient production is
better with purebreds than with
grades. Association members have
records of the production of each
cow in their herds and these records
are certified of merit or demerit for
their bull calves.
Bulls should be bought on the rec
ords of their ancestors. Bulls which
had low producing dams and
grandams are likely to sire heifers
with the same failings but the bull
backed by high production records is
likely to pass these characteristics
to his daughters. Type is important
in the show' ring but the figures on
the production record make or break
the dairyman.

Many Dairymen Bet
Luck Against Fact
Many Ohio dairymen are tops as
optimists declares C. L. Blackman,
animal husbandry specialist, Ohio
State University, who says some
herd owners intrust their future
business success to herd bulls which
are so mixed in ancestry that the
animals must spend much of their
time wondering whether they are
supposed to advocate, beef, butter,
or bologna.
LL sportsmen are interested in
the question how shooting
may be reduced. The an
nual Ohio Conservation Division re
ports indicating the manner in which
accidents occur show that they are
occasioned mostly through the viola
tion of a few simple rules that should
suggest themselves to everybody, ac
cording to Conservation Commissioner
Don Waters.
Modern firearms are far more
complicated than they were in the
old days, and novices should be care
ful to seek such instruction as will
enable them to know what they are
Pointing a gun in the direction of
another person may seem funny, or
devoid of danger under some circum
stances—but it’s bad practice any
time, anywhere.
Three positions for carrying the
gun in the field are recognized as
safe and good: First Over the
shoulder with the muzzle pointing up
ward Second—Over the hollow of the
arm, pointed away from companions
and dogs Third —Under the arm

Don't load a gun in the house.
Don’t take a revolver on a hunt

Don’t shoot until you know what is
within range it may save you a
lifetime of regret, or at least the loss
of a good dog or the fanner’s pig.
Don’t put a wrong gauge shell into
your gun.
Don’t use shot cartridges in a rifle.
Don’t threaten to shoot anyone, in

Don't take risks.
AAA Farm Program
Started In County
The go signal was given the 1940
AAA Parity Payment Program in Al
len county today with the announce
ment from Clair A. Patterson, Chair
man of the Allen County AAA Com
mittee, of the terms and conditions
under which parity payments will be
made to producers of corn and wheat.
The provisions are similar to those
in effect for the 1939 parity payments,
the chairman said, but they have been
strengthened by the additiona re
quirements intended to bring about a
more effective administration of the
program than ha? been possible under
previous regulations.
Persons interested in a corn crop
on a single farm are eligible for a
com parity payment under the AAA
Farm Program by planting within the
com allotment, and by keeping within
the wheat and tobacco allotments.
However, if the wheat allotment for
the farm is exceeded, the farmer may
still earn a com parity payment by
planting sufficiently below these al
lotments to offset the excess acreage
of w’heat.
They may earn a w’heat parity pay
ment by planting within wheat allot
ment and keeping within the corn and
tobacca allotments for the farm.
In every case the sum of the plant
ed acreage of com, wheat and tobac
co should not exceed the sum of the
allotments for the three crops.
A landlord, tenant or share-renter
interested in two or more farms in
one county is eligible for com and
wheat parity payments in 1940 by
meeting all the requirements for a
single farm, and,planning his farm
operations so that his total share of
the corn, wheat and tobacco crops on
all of the farms does not exceed his
total share of the allotments for these
Under the 1939 Parity Payment
Program, a producer could qualify for
a payment l\ keeping within his al
lotment for one commodity even tho
he overplanted the acreage allotment
of another commodity on the same
farm or overplanted the same crop or
other commodities on another farm.
These new provisions make it possible
for the county or state AAA com
mittee to withhold all or part of the
payment in such cases under the 1940
The chairman said that the parity
payment rates will be announced later
after the 1939 season average prices
are determined.
Approximately 143,000 corn and
wheat producers so far have received
$4,617,118 under the 1939 Parity Pay
mnt Program. Farmrs who have
kept within their corn allotments re
ceived 6 cents per bushel on the norm
al yield of their acreage allotment.
Wheat producers received 11 cents per
bushel on the normal yield of the
wheat allotment.
In Allen county 2054 farmers have
received parity payments under the
1939 AAA program. Parity payments
are made to farmers in order to bring
the prices they receive for commodi
ties more in line with the prices they
pay for other goods, the chairman
said. These payments are in addi
tion to the regular agricultural con
servation payments made under the
AAA Farm Program.
1940 winter wheat producers may
apply and receive 1940 parity pay
ments before their 1940 performance
is checked on com upon agreeing to
make refunds if subsequent checkups
show that they have overplanted their
allotments of any of the other crops,
the chairman explained.
Better Save The Home
Until Winter Is Over
The season having arrived when
outdoor temperatures are not espec
ially suitable for family life in Ohio,
Professor R. C. Miller, agricultural
engineering department, Ohio State
University, suggests it is a proper
time to adopt safety measures which
prevent farm houses from burning.
The major portion of- farm house
fires are caused by faulty stove pipes
and chimneys and by blazes started
on roofs. Old chimneys can be made
safer by inspection and repair, and
faulty stove pipes can be replaced.
Roof fires can be prevented by keep
ing out of stoves material which is
so light that it is carried out of the
chimney before it is wholly burned.
Chimney screens will catch sparks.
Every week some newspaper re
ports fires and injuries or deaths
caused by the explosion of kerosene
or gasoline used in starting fires in
stoves. It would be much better to
tear siding off the house for kindling
than to endanger lives and the home
by using explosives to kindle a fire.
Paper or rags soaked in linseed or
soybean oil will burst into flame
spontaneously if stored in piles for
only a few days. Piles of paper near
the furnace or stove may be ignited
by sparks which fly out unnoticed
when the doors are opened.
Tractors and automobiles start
many bam fires. Flame from the
exhaust ignites litter on the bam
floor or hay fodder stored in mows.
If the machines must be kept in the
barn, the floor should be kept free
from any easily inflammable mater
A law’ passed by the last legisla
ture permits townships or villages to
finance the purchase of firefighting
equipment for rural communities.
The old law’ made such organizations
difficult to establish and finance.
Piles of sand placed in or near
buildings, or chemical extinguishers
can be used to fight fires caused by
oils or gasoline. Water spreads such
fires. Buckets placed conveniently
and kept filled with water will ex
tinguish small blazes. A plentiful
supply of water in tanks or cisterns
will be required to make mechanical
fire fighting apparatus effective on
