Declaring safe management of the country's large wheat supplies an
important defense measure, Secretary of Agriculture Claude R. Wickard
(above) has proclaimed a marketing quota for wheat and has announced
May 31 as the date of a referendum at which wheat farmers will mark
ballots such as the one shown to determine whether quotas shall con
tinue in effect on the big 1941 crop. Marketing quotas are provided by
the AAA farm program, and enable farmers to safely store their surplus
for use as needed, Wickard said. According to current estimates, U. S.
farmers will have enough wheat on hand after harvest this year to
supply the nation's expected needs for nearly two years.
