(Tractor On Display
A new type of farm tractor that
may prove to be the final threat
to horses on the farm is now on
display at T .A. Turner & Co., Al
lis Chalmers dealer in Pink Hill.
L. C. Turner predicts it will re
place that last team of horses on
many farms by serving as a chore
tractor, and that it will fill com
plete power needs on many other
farms. 4. ' -.-TIk
new model differs from pre
vious tractor design in that it has
a rear-mounted engine With imple
ments attached in front within un
obstructed view of the operator.
Moving the engine to the rear
keeps the front of the tractor
clear for mounted implements, any
of -which can be attached or de
tached in five minutes. Even the
plow 'is front-mounted.
Mr. Turner points out tiiat many
farms keep one last team of horses
for a few. seasonal jobs, such as
corn planting or hauling. Although
such tasks are few and far between,
the hor.s "eat their heads off all
year long, and at present fee,d pri
ces "that ain't hay." The new trac
tor, he says, will do such work on
2 to 3 quarts of fuel an hour - - and i
caia uiuy wueii 11 wums. nits own
er just presses the starter button,
with no currying, - harnessing or
hitching up. ,
One feature of special interest
for close workuch as cultivating
vegetables, plowing ot the cor
ners or chore jobs is a special 3A
mile per hour low gear. The four
speeds forward range up to 6.9
miles per hour.
Wheel treads can be adjusted to
fit any nw spacing.
The tractor serves as a portable
power nit on belt-operated jobs
like water pumps, elevators, feed
grinders and feed mixers.
New mounted implements de
signed to work with the new trac
tor Include a 12-inch plow, 2-row
drill planter, 5-foot mower, single
row cultivator, 60-inch double tool
bar cultivator, 80-inch single tool
bar cultivator, independent gang
cultivator for vegetable beds, power
driven seeder for truck crops and
ground driven seeder.
, Regular pull-behind implements
include a 5-foot disc harrow, 2
sectlon peg tooth harrow and 1-
section spring tooth harrow.
' It was said that this is the first
riding tractor to answer the .needs
of part time farmers, of which
there are now more than one mill
ion in this country. The Company's
slogan for the tractor is: "For
some jobs on all farms and all jobs
on some farms." The new tractor

will be no provision duriag rke
1948-49 marketing year fer the pre
payment of penalty on the market
ing of excess tobacco on the basis
of the estimated production on Mm
During prier marketing years,
producers of excess tobacco were
given the option of having the pen
alty deducted by the warehousemen
at the time the tobacco was mark
eted, or, of prepaying the penalty
in advance on an estimated baaia
and making final settlement after
all marketings were completed.
This procedure nesessitated tbe act
lection of additional penalty or ma- '
king a refund in every case and
made it difficult to' detessnine eli
gibility for participation in the
price support program. During the
coming season penalty will be de
ducted by the warehousemen or
dealers in case of non-warehouse
sale, upon the marketing of eaah
