posed ithalt the rule which limits the
amount of insurance permitted per
acre be deleted. Heretofore, it has
been customary to place a Kmit upon
the amount of insurance that a farm
er could purchase on each acre of his
crop that he insured. The new rule
would only provide that the total in
surance for all insurance in any crop
shall not exceed the actual value of
the crop. , ,(

rates in 13 counties and decreasa the
rates in 18 counties. The hail-rates
for cotton would be decreased-in all
but two counties.
Based on the premiums written .n
1950, these changes' would result in
an overall increase of approximately j
$40,000 in the cost of this type of in
surance. The proposed rate increases reflect
in part the severe losses that were in
curred in several counties in 1950. One
