Farmers to Report .
On AAA Compliance
Individuals placed on
honor in move to save
travel, manpower, in
In an effort to reduce travel and
use of manpower, farmers of Dup
lin County the year' wUl report
their on compliance with provisions
of the 1943 AAA program, it was
announced today by Arthur Whit
field chairman of the County AAA
"Under this plan, which may be
called honor system, we hope to
save money, travel, tires, gasoline
and the time of persons who other
wise probably would be engaged in
agricultural production" Chairman
Herring said. "This plan is being
put into effect over the entire na
tion this year and we in Duplin
County certainly can meet up to
standards of farmers in any other
county." ' "
Under this program, he said,
each farmer wUl measure his ac
reage and wUl report it to hi;
County AAA Office on forms to bo
provided by the office. Farmers
also will report acreages oi crops
grown for soil-building purposes
and for which there is a payment
made under the AAA program.
Marketing quotas will be in effect
this vear onlv on cotton and tob
acco, Mr. Whitfield said ,but war
crops, such as peanuts, soybeans
or oil and sweet, potatoes for
market must be measured and re
ported for the purpose of determi
ning if goals were met. Commer
cial truck crops & Irish potatoes
for market also must be reported
for the purpose of determining in
centive payments. i. ;
4 VThe most likely procedure far
mers will follow is to measure and
determine acreage before crops
are planted and then stay within
the acreage set aside for this pur
pose" Mr. Whitfield said. "In such
cases, it is .imperative that fai
mere retain their records for use
in substantiating their reported
acreage.1 The record or measure
ments Should include a sketch of
the fields measured and distances
may be shown toy chains, yards, or
feet; When '. computed, ; however
the measurements' must show the
same total acreage as reported by
' In past years, measurements of
individual farms have been made
by community committeemen or
others employed t by ' the "AAA.
Committeemen this year will be
expected to assist farmers in mak
ing theif reports, will review all
reports and will measure acreages
on a certain percentage of farms
in their communities, in" cases
where errors are plainly evident,
the committeemen also will make
special checks.. 4 ,

Irish Potatoes are
Damaged by Cold

from eastern North Carolina indi
cate rather severe cold damage
to Irish potatoes in some sections
M. E. Gardner, head of the horti
cultural department at State col
lege, has revealed.
Some early plantings were in
jured April 4, and were recovering
when they were further injured
April 14 and 15, he said. -
The horticulturist said that if
plants are killed by frost soon aft
er they emerge, they will recover
without serious damage, but if
they are killed a second time a
reduction in yield and grade is to.
be expected. '
As to whether it is best to plow
up or replant, he said that estab
lished growers would survey their
own situations and act in accord
ance with their best judgment,
based upon past experience." For
the new growers, who are plant
ing potatoes for the first time, he
suggested that they consult their
county agents before deciding
what should be done.
When asked about replanting,
Gardner said:: "It may seem a lit
lte late to replant; but the emer
gency may justify such action."
Farmers who are eligible may
