What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The State program approved for 1963 provides generally for shar ing with farmers and ranchers up to approximately 50 percent of the out-of-pocket cost of carrying out conservation work. The group developing the coun ty program may recommend high er or lower rates of cost-sharing or may also recommend cost-shar ing for conservation practices not included in the State program. This might be done to provide an incentive for developing interest in special conservation problems in a particular county. The provision for giving some as sistance under ACP to conserva tion work beneficial to wildlife will be of interest to all sports men in the State.

Todays Bible Thought \And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethle hem; to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were ac complished that she should be de livered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2 : 1 - 7 ). Rubber bande, all sizes. Tribune. To assure meeting the objectives of the feed grain program, Secre tary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman has announced an in crease in the 1963 com price sup port, with proportionate increases in supports for the other four feed grains. Both the increased loan ratés and the higher acreage diversion payments (based on the support prices) will protect farm income and discourage excessive livestock expansion, particularly hogs and poultry. Sales of Commodity Cre dit Corporation-owned feed grains against certificates earned by far mers for participating in the pro gram cannot be made at prices less than the 1963 loan rates plus carrying charges. As announced earlier, partici pants in the 1963 feed grain pro gram will receive price support partly through loans and purchase agreements and partly through a price-support payment. The in creases just announced will be ac complished through higher loan and purchase agreement rates, with no change in the price-sup port payments. The national average support prices per bushel (hundredweight) fon grain sorghums) for 1963 feed grain crops now are: Com, $1.07 (loan), 18 cents (payment), total support, $1.25; barley, 82 cents (loan), 14 cents (payment), total support, 96 cents; grain sorghum, $1.72 (loan), 29 cents (payment), total support, $2. These total aver age supports compare with the previously announced supports of $1.20 per bu. for com, 93 cents for barley, and $1.91 for grain sorg hum. These are the three feed grains included in the 1963 feed grain program. Special provisions are made for small farms in this latest an nouncement. The payment rate for acreage diverted to conserving uses will be increased to 50 per cent of the county support rate on the normal production of the diverted acres; for farms bn which the entire feed grain base acreage (1959-60 acreage, as adjusted) is diverted, up to the eligible maxi mum of 25 acres. This change will give farmers who divert all of their base acre age about the same payment as was earned under the 1961 and 1962 programs. These farmers will receive no price-support payment since they will have no 1963 feed, grain acreage. For other farms, the diversion payment rate will be Increased somewhat as a result of the high er support price. As required in the law author izing the feed grain program, price support in 1963 is contingent upon performance of the acreage diver sion agreed to« with an allowance of a small tolerance for error, to be announced later. /■ a ï ’' > - à ' -À à A : ; \ a . ---
