Spring Conservation Program]
i Any Tar Heel farmer is elig
ible to participate in the 1953
Agricultural Conservation Pro
gram and farmers in all coun
ties are signing up to carry out
spring practices under this na
tional program .of soil and water
conservation, Tilman R. Walker,
chairman of the Agricultural
Stabilization and Conservation
State Committee, says.
To sign up, a farmer should
contact his local ARC office. In
signing up under the 1958 ACP

servation practices, the farmer
does not obligats himself in any
way, but he does become the key
participant in a farmer-govern
ment partnership which can
moan much for the future
strength of our agriculture.
The ACP for 1958 is a flexible
program that can be tailored to
fit the conservation needs of
every farm in North Carolina.
This flexibility that really meets
the conservation needs of farm
ers in the Coastal Plain, in the
