The new soil improvement program
will, be administered under a. differ,

Instead of commodity divisions for
the various basic crops, there are five
regions into which the United States
has been divided. Each region will
handle all crops in its territory.
North Carolina is in the East Cen
tral Region, -which has been placed
in charge of J. B. Hutson, former
chief of the AAA tobacco section.
"We who have seen the successful
way in which Mr. Hutson conducted
the tobacco program under the old
AAA are particularly gratified over
his appointment as director of this
region,'' commented Dean I, O.
Schatib. of State College.
"He is thoroughly familiar with the
situation in this state, he has our
interest at heart, and he has demon
strated his ability to get things done."
The new program i like the old
AAA in pome respects, however, the

istered by the State College agricul

much of the program will be handled
by community, county, and state com

up of representative farmers from

Mm- conservation grants mis vour
under the new farm program. The
grants, will be classified under two
headings, but both will be paid in one
One will be a ''moderate soil-maintenance
payment, probably 75 cents an
acre, on land planted to soil-building
or soil conserving crops.
This payment will not bo made.,
however, on tin acreage greater than
5(1 per cent of the acreage planted in
soil-depleting crops such as cotton,
tobacco, corn, wheat or truck. Nor
can it exceed -one-half" the total
amount of the grant.
The oilier will bo a larger payment
on bind shifted f rom soil depleting
crops to soil-building or conserving
crops, such as legutnes, hays, or grass
A committee-appointed -at. the re
cent meeting in Memphis recommend
ed that this payment bo at the rate
of. six -cents' a .pound on the .average,
production of land taken out of cotton.
It also ; .recommended a rate of at
least five cent, a pound on flue cured
and hurley, tobacco, -hut at no" event
less than the rate per pound on cotton.
The rate rt commended for peanuts
was at' least 1 U cents a pound, but
not to be less than 25 per cent of the
rate for cot ton.
The payments will lie available to
all farmers who comply with the pro
visions of the soil conservation .and
domestic allotment act, he pointed
To qualify for payments under the
act, a farmer must have this year an
acreage of Foil conserving crops ecjual
to at least 20 per cent of the acreage
devoted to soil-depleting crops.. .
IJowc'Ver, the full 20 per Vent will
not be required of a farmer if it
requires a greater diversion from soil
depleting to soil-building crops than
can be covered by the soil-improve
Furthermore, the farmer should not
have in 1936 an acreage of soil-de
pleting cropa greater than his base
acreage of such crops.
The base acreage and normal aver
age yields for cotton, tobacco, and
peanuts under the new program will
be the same as established for 1936
under the old AAA.
Base acreages for other soil- de
pleting crops will be -worked out on
a fair and equitable basis by the Sec
retary of Agriculture, Dean Schaub
stated. . .
Provision has been made, however,
that if a grower does not exceed his
base, deduction, will be made . from
the amount of payments he would
No diversion payments will be made
on food and feed crops if the farmer,
jndiverting land in these crops to soil
improvement, reduces his production
of food and feed below the amount
needed on his farm.
There are three major objectives of
th-. new program, the dean pointed
The first is conservation of the
soil through wise use of the land.
This is also intended to check the over
production of soil-depleting cash crop:..
The second objective is the re-es- I
tabliehment and maintenance of farm
income at a "fair level."
The third objective is the protec
