Feed Crain Cooperators Are
Cautioned About ‘Replanting’
Growers who are participating
in the 1961 feed grain program
should be careful about replant
ing “hailed-out” cropland to
either grain sorghum or corn, A.
C. Griffin, chairman of the
County Agricultural Stabiliza
tion and Conservation Commit
tee, points out.
The chairman cautioned pro
gram cooperators that they have
a “permitted acreage” for com
and $-ain sorghum on their
farm, and any plantings in ex
cess of this permitted acreage
would result in noncompliance
with the feed grain program.
Under the 1961 feed grain pro
gram, Mr. Griffin explained, the
producer of com and grain sor
ghum earns a special diversion
payment by reducing his base
acreage of these crops by at
least 20 percent from the farm’s
base acreage and diverting the

presiding minister of the local
congregation of Jehovah’s Wit
nesses, travel arrangements have
been completed for 14 delegates
to attend the “United Worship
ers Assembly” to be held June

Mr. Long said that most of
the local residents who plan to
attend the convention will be
leaving on June 19 so as to ar
rive in time to get in their ac
commodations and attend open
ing sessions of the convention.
Many of the delegates will stay
in private homes in New York.
He reported that members of
the congregation had made up
four car groups for the trip.
Heading the car groups will be
local ministers, Joseph R. Code
spoti, Jr., Anthony Lee Molchan,
Josepheus Hall and Mr. Long.
Among the 70,000 expected to
attend will be delegates from
every country in South and Cen
tral America, Canada and the
