PLANS FOR 1938
Soil Conservation, Cash
Crop Control Are
The 1938 agricultural conserva
tion program is .aimed directly at
soil conservation, with as much
cash-crop control as is possible
under provision of the AAA as it
Farmers complying with the pro
gram will need to carry out half
again as many soil-building prac
tices as in 1937, said E. Y. Kloyd
of State college, in announcing the
program for next year.
But these practices will be those
which any farmer interested in
conserving his soil will be glad to
follow, he added.
A greater effort will be made to
regulate the acreage of soil-depleting
crops by providing for heavier
deductions from the payments of
growers who exceed their "soil
depleting goals," Floyd stated.
If growers desire a greater de
,,gree of production control, he con
tinued, it will have to be secured
through legislation in addition to
the present agricultural conserva
In the 1938 program, he went on,
goals will be set up for the opti
mum acreages of soil-depleting
crops and soil-building crops and
practices for each farm.
Goals for depleting crops will be
the acreages which would usually
be required to supply the demand
at a price fair to both the pro
ducer and the consumer. The na
tional and state goals will be sub
divided into county and individual
Soil-building goals will include
the crops and practices needed to
restore and maintain the soil re
sources of the land.
Separate goals will be prescribed
for cotton, tobacco, peanuts, and
potatoes if a majority of the po
tato growers vote to have this crop
included. There .will also be goals
for, general depleting crpps.
Provisions lor commercial vege
tables, commercial orchards, and

the same as in 1937.
The program will be administered
through state, county and commun
ity committees composed of farm
ers, with supervision of an advis
ory nature given by AAA and ex
tension service workers.
At the beginning of the crop
year, the maximum amount of pay
ment a grower will be able to earn
will be . calculated. Attainment of
the soil-depleting and the soil-founding
goals for his farm will then be
set as conditions for the full pay
ment of that amount.
Indetermining the soil-depleting
goal for a farm, the, committeemen
will consider the acreage of crops
usually grown, acreage of food and
feed crops needed for home use,
good soil management, tillable acre
age on the farm, type of soil,
topography, production facilities,
and crop rotations.
The soil-building goals will be
set up according to the needs oi
the farm for good soil management
through terracing, use of fertilizer,
legume crops, and other conserva
The , committeemen and farmers
would discuss and agree upon the
practices needed. A farmer would
not be required to carry out prac
tices not needed on his farm.
Small farms of the subsistence
type would have goals for . soil-depleting
crops established at the
farm's usual acreage of such crops
which are primarily needed for
food and feed on the farm.
Payments for performance will
be divided among the producers on
a farm on the same general basis
that proceeds of the crops are di
vided. While this is the set-up-for the
1938 program, 1 Floyd pointed out, it
is still dependent upon appropria
tions from Congress and possible

Sad Colors Dampen

"Give me a rug with a color like
mashed sweet potatoes you know
we have boys in the house."
That was a statement Miss Paul
ine Gordon, of State college, heard
a friend make to a salesman while
buying a rug for the dining room.
"Why should we continue to live
with the same old dreary things
just because our forebears did ?"
Miss Gordon asked.
".If I were asked to name one
fault most of us have in home fur
nishings, it would be sad colors
what we call useful shades that will
not show stain or soil easily."
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cornwell, of
Cleveland county, realized that
something was wrong with their
living-room, crowded with the ac
cumulations of a life-time, Miss
So they called in their county
home demonstration agent and plan
ned some drastic changes.
Down came the crayon portraits
and cluttering bric-a-bac, out went
the dreary linoleum. In their stead
were placed two-good pictures, one
over the mantel and the other over
an old table that "no one thought
could look like such a choice piece
of furniture until it had been re
finished." Narrow, dark drapes were re
moved from the windows so the
sunlight could flood the room. Fur
niture was placed for harmony, and
balance and cheerful colors were
Twelve big hooks for coats and
hats were removed from the front
hall where they, together with the
array of hats and coats, had been
an eye-sore for years. .
"You just ought to see the dif
ference," Miss Gordon added.
