Farm Program to
Get Early Start
For 1940 Season
On December 1, a month ahead of
the new calendar year, the federal
farm program for 1940 will have its
official opening in Oregon, accord
ing to announcement by Will Steen
of Milton, chairman of the state ag
ricultural conservation committee.
Oregon farmers were being in
formed by their county conserva
tion committees of the relatively few
changes which have been made in
the 1940 program.

farmers. The new specification pro

much as $20, provided they carry

"Of course, this doesn't mean that
all farmers taking part in the pro
gram will be paid $20," Steen said.
"They'll get only what they earn.
But if a small farmer normally has
a conservation allowance of $14, for
example, he'll find this increased
to $20 in 1940 provided he carries

Wheat growers again will receive
both acreage compliance and price
adjustment payments in 1940. The
rate of payment, however, will be
somewhat smaller than in 1939, Steen
said, since the national wheat acre
age goal of next year is 62 million
acres, as compared to 55 million acres
this year. This necessitates dividing
the money more ways, bringing
smaller payments per acre.
As in 1939, farmers expecting to

Hides Must be With
Farm Killed Cattle
When cattle on the farm are not
hog-dressed, that is, the skin left on
as is done with veal and weaner
calves, the hide must be folded up
and placed in the same vehicle that
carries the carcass, warns Dr. W. H.
Lytle, chief of the state department
of agriculture division of animal in
dustry. Despite the fact that the law
plainly states that the hide must
accompany the carcass, inere is a
growing laxity in the handling of
farm dressed and quartered car
casses. Butchers who buv farm dressed
cattle must insist that the hide ac
company the carcass, the department
warns. Also, the buyer must check
on accuracy of the brand and ear
marks on the orange colored sher
iffs tag for each animal.

7 HE PUBLISHERS deeply appreciate the consider

Days of depression, in which this paper attempted to
"give" as well as "take," caused discontinuance of the
"paid-in-advance" policy of subscription accounts for
several years, and to give credit to those who desired to
have the paper keep coming. Due to this situation, a
serious number of arrearages accrued, necessitating
special collection effort, not only to bring in needed rev
enue, but to comply with federal postal regulations.
Believing that both the newspaper and the subscriber
will be benefitted by such a policy in future, as well as to
prevent infringement of postal, regulations which jeop
ardize this papers' mailing privileges, we are returning
to a strictly "paid-in-advance" policy of subscription ac
counts begnning January 1 , 1940, at which time any ac
count six months or more in arrears will be closed and
the subscription discontinued.
After January 1, 1940, each subscriber will receive no
tice 30 days prior to date of subscription expiration, and
no subscription account will be carried for more than
