31800 acres by londay This averages out to nearly 43 acres per farm diverted in that county well above the state iverage as well as the average or the area The 31800 acres diverted by erro Gordo County farmers bus far is exceeded by only two counties in the state In Wood ury County 976 farmers have Jivertcd 39355 acres and in Palo Alto County 1117 farmers have diverted 33202 acres Cerro Gordo County also was among the top 10 counties in the state last year in the percentage of farmers participating in the program and also in the amount of money paid out for diverted acres Lawrence Copley office man ager of the Cerro Gordo ASC says he believes most ASCS people across the state are fairly well pleased by the signup for the program thus far this year One reason for Cerro Gordo Countys large participation Copley believes may be due to the fact that the county has larger farms than some other counties and that these larger farms are more inclined to go into the program for a bigger percentage of their feed grain bases The manner in which the program is presented to the farmers also has something to do with the percentage of sign ups and how much they divert Copley believes Second to Cerro Gordo County in the number of acres already diverted for the 1965 program in North Iowa is Kossuth County In that county 1031 farmers have diverted 28717 acres Other North Iowa counties the number of farmers signed up for the program as of Monday and number of diverted acres are Butler 648 farms 19598 acres Chickasaw 511 farms 16547 acres Floyd 662 farms 23811 acres Franklin 647 farms 22811 acres Hancock 481 farms 15193 acres Hardin 802 farms 23132 acres Howard 607 farms 19542 acres Mit chell 539 farms 18585 acres Winnebago 739 farms 22049 acres Worth 386 farms 12780 acres and Wright695 farms and 18156 acres The drought in North Iowa last year may be the reason some farmers are holding back getting into the program this year Copley points out Because of the drought many area farmers had their grain supplies seriously depleted Be cause of this Copley says they may want to raise all the grains they can this year and there fore arent going to get into the program in 1965 FASHION SHOP Two Doors South Of Our Childrens Shop Plan carnival at Crystal Lake CRYSTAL school band mothers will hold the an nual carnival Saturday night in the local high school A
