of farm stock peanuts we grow. It has been working for
us since August, 19S3. It's done such a good job that
our farmer-directors voted overwhelmingly to ask us
to raise our contribution to 2 cents per 100 pounds of
farm stock peanuts. v With this small increase, it can do
a still better job. This is one of the proposals we will
