AAA Will Protect
The AAAplans to base its 1936
cotton adjustment payments on a
rate considerably higher than five
cents a pound, according to J. F.
Criswell, of State College.
The new cotton contracts stipu
late that the minimum payments
will be five cents a pound on the
average production of the land
withdrawn from cotton cultiva
The exact amount of the ad
justment payments next year will
be determine by the price of cot
ton and amount of money avail
able, Criswell said, but It is safe
to say the payments will be well
above the minimum.
The AAA plans to protect the
contract signers in case the price
goes down next year, Criswell
said, and for this season provision
is being made to increase the ad
If the Bankhead act Is not con

growers not under contract may
expand their production enough
to cut the price down to a low
level, possibly six or seven cents
Growers with contracts will re- ,
celve adjustment payments In ad- ;

of their cotton, and will be able .
to get a fair return for their crop;

they can sell their cotton on the (

A grower may adjust his 1936 "
acreage by 30 to 45 per cent of
his base acreage, and receive ad
justment payments accordingly.

Question: What will be the
amount of the first payment made
to tobacco growers signing the
Answer: A minimum payment
of $1.00 per 100 pounds of base
tobacco production will be made
as soon as possible after the con
tract is signed. Additional pay
ments will depend upon the price
of tobacco, and will be the amount
which, when added to the farm
price, will bring the returns to
not less than parity on the quan
tity of tobacco used domestical
ly. Tenants and share-croppers
will share in the special payments'
in the same proportion as their
interest In the 193S crop.

Question: How can land bej
inoculated for growing lespedeza?j
Answer: There are various com- 1
mercial cultures, but a better J
method is to moisten the seed
with molasses and then mix them j
with soil from a field that has
grown lespedeza or some other '
legume crop such as vetch, Aus-i

clover. Inoculated soil can also
be drilled in at the rate of 200 t
or more pounds to the acre with
the seed. The latter method is
best, especially on sandy soils. '
