The sign up under the Wheat
Acreage Reserve phase of the Soil
Bank has attracted many Tar
Heel farmers, according to Novile
Hawkins, Chairman of the County
Agricultural Stabilization and
Conservation Committee. Wheat
farmers are now plaoing their
acreage in the 1957 reserve pro
gram because of the fact that
wheat planted for harvest next
year is seeded this fall. The fi
nal date for sign up for wheat
farmers has been extended from
Sept. 21 to October 5, 1956.
The payment rate for 1957
wheat will be the same it was
this year $1.33 a bushel, Haw
kins said. Payment will be made
on the normal yield for the re
serve acreage. Payment will be
in the form of negotiable certifi
cates which may be redeemed for
cash through regular banking
channels or they may be exchang
ed for grain. The certificates will
be issued after the County ASC
Committee has determined that
the indicated wheat acreage re
duction has been made and tha,t
all other allotments for 1957 have
been complied with.
Land placed in the Acreage Re
serve must not be cropped or
grazed during the period of the
Soil Bank Agreement; land des
ignated must have previuosly been
used for the production of wheat;
the spread of noxious weeds must
be controlled on the land, and the
ASC Committee will not permit
the designation of irregular sized
tracts or "minimum" size tracts
that cannot readily be measured.
The 1957 Acreage Reserve Pro
gram will be in operation on to
bacco, cotton, corn and possibly
peanuts. Date for sign up and
program provisions for the other
commodities will 'bee- announced

Surveys have been started or
authorized on three Madison and
Buncombe highway projects that
would cost up to $4,000,000 to
build, 13th Division Commission
er J. Fleming Snipes disclosed
Jn addition he revealed, $2,300,
000 for Asheville's expressway has
been committed in writing.
Combined, the four highway
jobs form a $0,000,000 long-range
construction program for the two
counties. Snipes emphasized that
no funds have been allocated or
committed for any but the ex
pressway. The projects as outlined by
Snipes Friday night are:
1. A survey on a new four-lane
was authorized at mid-day from
Raleigh. The proposed road on
a jiew location -would by-pass
Weaverville to some extent. Based
on cost experience, it would run
to $l,o0.0,000, Snipes said.
2. A $2,300,000 commitment for
Asheville's expressway has been
given Snipes in writing from
Highway Chairman A. H. Gra
ham. The commitment can be
turned into an allocation when the
funds are needed, Snipes said.
3. Survey parties are now at
work on a road improvement pro
ject from Marshall to Walnut on
U. S. 26-70. This is approximate
ly five miles. , The distance could
be increased by two to three miles

ASC IS NOW
Payments, which when complet
ed, will total nearly four million
dollars, are now being made to Tar
Heel farmers by the local ASC
County Offices, according to Til
man R. Walker, Chairman of the
Agricultural Stabilization and
Conservation State Committee.
These payments are being: made
under the 195(5 Soil Bank Acreage
Reserve Program. Payment is in
the form of a negotiable certifi
cate which farmers may immedi
ately redeem for cash through
regular banking channels.
In order to earn these pay
ments, farmers in this state di
verted nearly 80 thousand acres
from the production of tobacco,
cotton, wheat, or corn. Breaking
this down to the various crops,
Walker explained that the total
figure is made up of 5,239 acres
of wheat; 45,795 acres of corn;
20,867 acres of cotton, and 7,756
acres of tobacco. The largest pay
ment, he said, will go to flue-cui-ed
tobacco growers who will re
ceive over a million and a half
dollars. The next largest pay
ment will go to corn growers in
North Carolina's 27 commercial
corn counties. This payment will
amount to $1,266,611. Wheat
ments under the 1957 Acreage Re
farmers will receive payments to
taling $26,252, and cotton and
burley tobacco farmers will re
ceive payment of $989,507 and

The Tennessee Supreme Court,
in a recent opinion handed down
in the case of Ivan Range, et al
vs. Tennessee Burley Tobacco
Growers Association, affirmed the
opinion of the Chancellor and the
Court of Appeals in holding that
net profits from the administra
tion of the Federal price support
program belonged to all tobac
co growers whose crops have been
handled under the program, ac
cording to spokesmen for -th-Committee
than 7,000 tobacco growers who
filed this suit in their behalf.
The Chancery Court, in a de
cree written by Judge Shepherd,
held that profits arising from the
sale of producers' tobacco " . . . .
belong to the farmers and not the
Association. The Association acts
as agent for the Commodity Cred
it Corporation in making the
loans and holds the equities as
agent or trustee of the farmer
or tobacco producers."
The Court of Appeals in af
firming the decree of the Chan
"We think any grower reading
the contract in advance of the
sale of his crop would have con
cluded that "distribution" meant
distribution in cash upon the
liquidation of the crop for the
year rather than allocation ac
cording to cooperative usage and
custom upon the books of the As
sociation. As to such grower's
erops under its contract with Com
modity Credit Corporation, the
Association was acting as an
agent of the Federal Government
and not in its capacity as a co
operative, benefiting the industry
as a whole."
The Supreme Court concurred

opinions, and went on to stay that
