The March 1934 income w’as composed of $408,000,000 from the sale of farm products and $9,000,000 from rental and benefit payments made by the farm administration for acreage reduction. The bureau estimated the total cash income during the fiix^t three months of 1934 at $1,312,-000,000 of which $07,000,000 came from benefit payments. Income for the first quarter of 1933 was $873,000,000.
