Ramsey, of fice manager of the County Ag ricultural Stabilisation and Con servation Service. Many small farmers in Madison County an able to carry out conservation practices that could not be com pleted without cost-sharing. Ramsey went on to say that the avenge Government cost-snare for Madison County farmers un der the 1964 program was A J AA S. A4AA ' about s.uu. uver ov requested cost-sharing in carry-! W out some practice. Some of the practices requested wen es tablishing and improving pasture and hay crops, planting trees, tile drainage,, forestry improvement, and winter cover crops. Without tiie assistance available under the ACP, Ramsey says a great deal of this conservation work would go undone. The pro gram is, therefore, a real stimu lant to the farm economy of Mad ison County. It helps protect and conserve our soil, water, and for estry resources. Without these bask resources all farmers, and the entire economy, would suffer. Farmers needing conservation work in 1865 an urged to apply for cost-sharing at their local ASCS office. The local conserva tion practices an adapted to fit the local needs. Conservation farming pays big dividends.

Signed up are 1,482,683 farm ers who intend to divert 86,576300 acres from feed grain production, or 42 percent of base of 86,627,300 acres. The 86.6 million acres of base acreage on enrolled farms represents 66 percent of total on all farms in United States. The 1965 signup exceeds previ ous feed grain program high points by these amounts: 11 per cent greater than the 1962 enroll ment of 1,337,182 ; 7 percent higher than the 1964 agreed diversion of 84,312,100 acres, and 12 percent higher than 77,602,900 acres of feed grain base on enrolled farms in 1964.

In System T Decision Is Expected Soon; Hotly . Contested Arguments By DOUG REED Citisen Staff Writer Raleigh A compromise set tlement of the hotly-disputed one man jury commission system in Madison County appeared to be shaping up here Thursday. The possibility arose during, and after, a torrid 75-minute de bate on a bill introduced by Sen. Clyde M. Norton of Old Fort to abolish the one-man system. Verbal exchanges over the bill came at a meeting of the House Local Government Committee which, for all practical purposes, became a full-scale public hearing. There were these developments pointing toward a possible solu tion to the impasse between rival political factions: The bill was sent to a subcom mittee after Rep. Lacy H. Thorn fa urge of Jackson County suggest ed such a procedure might be helpful in producing a proposal satisfactory to both sides. Superior Court Judge Fronk Huskins of Burnsville, who under present law appoints the Madison jury commissioner, said in Char lotte he felt all counties, including Madison, could have a higher qual ity of jurors if they had a three man jury commission with not more than two of its members from the same political party. Madison Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Liston B. Ramsey said if Norton's bill bad specified a commisson of three people "appointed by the resident T judge, we'd have no opposition to that" Norton's bill already passed by the Senate, would bring Madison under general statutes which pro vide for the county commission ers to act as a three-man jury commission. At present, this would mean Madison's three Re publican county commissioners would replace the Democratic jury commissioner appointed by the judge. Madison has had a one-man commission since 1965 by special act. Judge Huskins' name was men tioned in the dispute publicly for the first time Thursday. Rep. Paul Story of McDowell, speaking for the bill, said Huskins had author ized him to quote him "as saying he doesn't like one-man jury com missions and that he would prefer a commission of three to five per sons representative of both par ties." Judge Huskins was contacted by the Citisen in Charlotte later Thursday and asked if this meant he favored Sen. Norton's bill. Huskins said it did not "While I don't covet the appointive authori ty, nevertheless I do not think the bill improves anything in Madison County," he said. "The (Continued To Last Page) i i I.
