The soil-building payments will
be divided on the same basis used
last year, Criswell stated, but a
change has been made in the
method of dividing the diversion
Last year diversion payment

to the producer furnishing the
land, 16 2-3 per cent to the pro
ducer furnishing workstock and
equipment, and 66 2-3 per cent to

less complicated to work out, said
