The Department of Agricul
ture is going right ahead in its
preparation for distributing
$90,000,000 to finance farmers
in producing this years’ crops,
which bill was signed by Presi
dent Hoover Feb. 4, and in
Congress action is planned to
report the “farm parity’’ bill to
the Senate.
Following President Hoov
er’s signing of the Crop Loan
Bill Feb. 4, Secretary Hyde and
his assistants undertook to
draft regulations to cover is
suance of loans through six
regional offices. Large stacks
of applications are on hand.
The bill provides that the
Secretary of Agriculture may
lend the money to farmers in
return for a lien on the crop.
Formulation of rules and regu
lations is placed in the hands
of the Secretary. A cut in
production of as much as 30
per cent may be required by the
Secretary in return for a loan,
but the law does not compel
him to make that stipulation.
The measure also provides sl,-
000,000 for loans for livestock
feed in drought-ridden areas,
the borrower to give a lien on
the livestock.

School costs in Maryland in
1931 represented 26 per cent of
.he State expenditures and 48
per cent of the County levies
and highway expenses consti
.uted 22 per cent of the State
expenditures and 12 per cent of
aie County levies, according to
a survey of taxation in the
State just reported by the Uni
versity of Maryland Experi
ment Station. This ihforma
aon has been compiled in bul
letin form and may be had by
writing the Experiment Sta
tion at College Park and ask
ing for a copy of bulletin 339,
entitled “Taxation In Mary
land With Special Reference
To Agriculture.”
The authors, W. P. Walker
md Dr. S. H. DeVault, point
out further in their study that
.ne uonued indebtedness of
Alaryland has increased from
$13,000,000 in 1912 to $35,400,-
JOO in 1932, while that of the
counties has increased from
$1,900,000 in 1912 to $31,400,-
JOO, in 1932 and the annual
debt requirement of the coun
ties will not decrease until
The general property tax
was found to furnish about 24 •
per cent of the State and 95 per
cent of the county revenue al
though considerable inequality
was found to exist in the as
sessment of general property
for taxation. For example,
from 1927 to 1932 farm proper
ty was assessed at 92 per cent
of its sale price as compared
with 67 per cent of the sale
price of town property.
In addition to the survey,
the bulletin contains specific
: recommendations looking to
! ward immediate relief and
permanent improvements in
ithe taxation system, with the
object in mind not to increase
i the revenue but to relieve gen
eral property owners and to
distribute the burden of taxa
i tion equitably among- all tax
paying groups.
It is more easy to be wise
for oUiers than for ourselves.

Even in a comparatively
mild climate, such as found in
Maryland, a suitable wind
break will effect a saving in
fuel well worth considering
and will also add considerably
to the comfort of livestock.
Since the cold winds of winter
come usually from the north
west or north this will help to
indicate the relation of the
windbreak to the house or to
the quarters for the animals.
Also, in addition to its utilitar
ian value as a shelter, the
windbreak will beautify, as it
forms an axcellent background
for the home. If evergreens
are used as a basis for the
windbreka, they may be furth
er supplemented with clumps
of dogwood or other flowering
trees or shrubs on the side to
wards the house.
Sometimes the woodiot or a
natural belt of woods will fur
nish a windbreak or, if neces
sary, a special planting may be
made. Evergreens are gener
ally most effective in the win
ter season althougn a combina
tion of everg.eens and decidu
ous types orteu makes a very
pleasing planting. Any trees
which harbor insects or di
seases injurious to crops
should, of course, be avoided.
For the Eastern Shore and
Southern section of the State,
loblolly and Scotch pines, Nor
way Spruce, Bald Cypress, and
red and white oaks will be
found best, while for the moun
tain section, Norway spruce,
hemlock, white, red, Scotch
and Austrian pines; arbor
vitae, red oak and tulip poplar
should prove most suitable.
Any further information re
garding windbreaks may be
had from the Maryland State
Department of Forestry, with
headquarters in Baltimore.
