Program Deadline Extended Jefferson County farmers wishing to participate in the feed grain and-or wheat programs will have an additional two weeks to sign up, Mike Sienkiewicz, executive director of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) announced. Mike said that Secretary of Agriculture Bob Bergland is extending the signup period for the programs from May l through May 15 because of program changes announced March 29. On that date Secretary Bergland authorized additional diversion of cropland under the feed gram programs and permitted wheat program participants to graze out their wheat or harvest hay on a percentage of their planted acreage. "The payment will be equal to the higher of the 1978 deficiency rate of fifty cents times the established yield and the acres for payment. Acres for payment are limited to the larger of the 50 acres or 40 percent of the total acreage of barley, corn. grain sorghum, and wheat intended for harvest in 1978, not to exceed the wheat acreage." The acres for payment cannot. be increased after signup, {rod will be reduced if the acreage designated for grazing and hay is less. Designated acreage must be protected from erosion. Other forage crops, except grain sorghum, may follow the wheat for grazing and hay, but not for grain or seed. Farmers should visit or call the local ASCS office at 209 E. Third Avenue, Ranson, or call 725-3471 for additional in- formation on the special wheat grazing and hay provision.

Here's one RAMEY plan. Take one area of your home -- or perhaps just one area of a room -- and go all out to dramatically re-do that one little area. This plan can raise your spirits and give you a bright new corner of the world. But how do you go about it? After you've decided which corner or area you want to improve, add one truly magnificent piece of furniture there. Add a daring new color or color scheme. Or, perhaps try an exciting pattern you've always wanted but were afraid to use in a whole room. We can give you other ideas, and we invite you to come in By vastly im- proving one area in your home. you'll be taking that one bold gesture to start you on the road to the home you've always wanted. And such a move can help relieve that monotonous "sameness" that afflicts too many homes. By using this plan you can improve one area of your home -- and ac- tually make the whole hosue seem better, too. RAMEY'S FURNITURE & APPLIANCES Charles Town, W.Va.

Jeffmon Farmm Received Financial Assistance For Feed Between October 1, 1977 and April 15, 1978, qualifying livestock producers in Jefferson County received financial assistance to help them buy feed under the Emergency Feed Program. Mike Sienkiewicz Executive Director of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS), said the farmers received over $31,000 to help purchase more than 1.5 million pounds of feed. "Financial aid is authorized to farmers under the Emergency Feed Program when their livestock are threatened by conditions brought on by a natural disaster such as the extended drought conditions experienced last year," Sienkiewicz explained. Par- ticipants may be reimbursed up to 50 percent of the cost for feed purchased during the emergency period. "This however, may not exceed two cents per pound in terms of feed grain equivalent." Nationally, 83,410 applications were approved during the five- month period to help producers purchase about 8.9 billion pounds of feed (158.8 million bushels of corn equivalent). Administered by ASCS, the Emergency Feed Program helps preserve herds and prevent widespread selling or destroying of herds due to natural disasters. To be eligible for the feed, producers must have suffered a substantial loss in the amount of feed normally produced; have insufficient feed for the period of the disaster; and must purchase larger-than- normal quantities of feed.
