New Regulation Oh
Farms in this county, , even
though adjoining and owned by the
same person, must be operated as
: one farming unit in order to be
considered as one farm for allot-
; ment purposes, Helene W. Nixon,
Perquimans Cpunty ASC Office
' Manager, said today..
The' county offices have been di
rected by the ASC State Commit
tee to make a survey immediately
- to determine that all farms in the
county .are properly ' constituted.

ASC State Committee,' says there
are many tracts of land in, the
' State owned by Jhe same person
and operated 4as a4 single; farming
, ' unit yet the owner : has retained
V) these tracts on ASC records as sep
arate farms. In some, cases, he
said, the producers were aratious
- that the tracts not be combined due
to minimum allotment provisions in!
the law, and the 15 acre per farm
permitted acreage on wheat. .
The survey of th State that is
now 1 being made is to: determine
, . that all farms are. constituted' in
- accordance with the regulations of
- the Secretary of Agriculture re
' gardless of how they tnay be af
fected under certain programs.
Walker explained, that these regu
lations require 'that all adjacent
or nearby farmland, which, is un
der the same Ownership and' op-J
era ted as one farming unit, shall be
- . considered as one farm. ASC

Hurri can e Stu dy
What hurricanes do and what to
do about them is the subject of an
intensive study 'by the Corps of
Engineers in cooperation with oth
er Federal agencies.
How mucn damages they impose,
the value of dunes, types of struc
tures best suited to withstand, hur
ricanes, and how frequently these
storms have occurred in the past,
are some of the questions a special
staff of engineers of the Wilming-j
ton District are seeking to answer.
The North Carolina examination
and survey iV .ta'ed in with a Gulf-to-New;
England study being con
ducted by the' Chief of Engineers,
and will require some three years
Public low 71 approved last June
is the enabling authority and, in es
sence, it directed the Corps to take
the lead in the most comprehensive
study of hurricanes ever attempt-
An intense investigation of the
behavior of hurricanes is a rela-
tively new field of effort. Much
technical study is required. All fa
cilities of the Corps, including the
Beach Erosion Board and the Wa
terways Experiment Station, are
being utilized to the maximum ex
tent practicable. The United
States Weather Bureau also is tak
ing an active part, and talent from
universities and consulting firms
has been retained to cover all ele
ments of this very complex pro
ject. . , ,: v.

dtnmendations of course, are un
