Young, Jr., pilot of the plane and John Anderson, Co-owner of the Acheson Co. An experiment was conducted by Leroy Jacobs, Route 3, Yellow Springs, with Tetrapetkus rye, on his farm on Clifton road. Being late in the season Mr. Jacobs engaged a plane to sow the grain. It took Stanley Young, Jr., pilot of the plane, owned by the Acheson Aviation Go., of Col­ umbus, Ohio, just 3Ms hours to sow the 70 acres of rye on the Jacob’s farm. The Tetrapetkus type is import­ ed from Germany, by the Dewine & Hamma Seed Co., of Yellow Springs. The seed Is tested and grown in miseries in Germany and Is a hybrid produced by chemical methods. If the experiment of the seed proves successful as well as the seeding by plane project, it may be a great step forward toward easing the farmers grain planting problems. “ Effective Advertising Leaflets Obtainable.

Mr, Rnmscy said the best way to bring customers in to a store is through effective advertising and the primary step in planning an effective advertising campaign 1$ to decide what you want advertis­ ing to do for you.

Deadline Near On COG Leans Fanners who have postponed taking out a price-support loan or purchase agreement on their 1954 grain crops may well make an early visit to their County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation, ac­ cording to Joseph B, Mason, Office Manager of the Greene County ASC Office. January 31, 1955, is the closing date for Commodity Credit Corpor­ ation loans and purchase agree­ ments on 1954 crops of wheat, rye barley, oats, and soybeans. Loans and purchase agreements on 1954- corn are available through May 31* 1955. As of January 10, 1955, farmers in the County had covered the follow­ ing amounts of their 1954 crops un­ der the price-support program; Wheat—1111 Loans on 404,817.4 bushels of wheat in the amount of $933,620.93, Oats—3 Loans on 1326.0 bushels of oats In the amount of $1,047.54, Soybeans—l i Loans on 5028.33 bushels of soybeans in the amount Of $10,896.41, Corn—39 Loans on 51,515.39 bushels of com in the amount of $85,262.06. Under the Price-Support Program In 1954, farmers have placed 462, 687,12 bushels of grain under Price- Support Loans in the amount of $1,030,826.94, Mr, Mason reminds fanners that adequate storage is essential to the operation of the loan program. Loans and purchase agreenments are effective in protecting farm prices because they make it possible for fanners to market their crops at a more advantageous time. Instead of being forced to rush the whole crop to market at harvest time to meet operating expenses farmers may store their crops, take out a loan, and selll as market conditions warrant. Information on Government Loans to help farmers increase farms is also avalllabie at the needed storage facilities on their County ASC Office.
