Hartford Baptist Church at 10:00a.m. Rev. Wesley Hanson is host pastor. Growezs were reminded today that April I st is the last day for filing applications to take part in the 1966 feed grain program. John Iler, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, points ou that only grow- ers who participate in the program will be eligible for price support on their 1966 crops of corn, barley, and grain sorghums. As last year, the support is made available through loans, purchases,, and price-support payments. Besides qualifying for price- support loans, purchases, and pay- ments, the participating grower also earns a diversion payment for shift- ing part of his feed grain base to a conserving use; the payment does not apply to the first 20-percent diver- sion except on farms with small bases, (base 25 acres and under re- ceives payment on the first 20-per- cent of his base). The price-support payments may be earned on the pro- jected production from an acreage up to 50 percent of the total feed grain base for the farm by planting one or more of the feed grains, corn, grain sorghums,, or barley, or by planting soybeans in lieu of a feed grain. The Chairman urges farmers who are interested in taking part in this year's feed grain program to call at the ASCS county office as soon as possible, since there are only 3 working days left before the slgnup deadline, and signing up is a neces- sary first step in program partici- pation. Feed grain program appli- cations may be filed at the ASCS County Office until Friday. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. SIGNUP DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, APRIL 1st. Telephone Users Will Be in Paying Excise Tax on April 1, i966 Prom left to right are; John Lindley, Carol Overhults, Douglas row, left to right; Paul Walton, Dwight Grider, Mike Rowe, y Brown, Marilyn Maze, Cynthia Shrull. row, left to right; Richard Sandefur, Molly Bartlett, Mary Telephone users in Ohio County will begin paying ten percent in excise ;axes on their telelhone bills mailed ginning April 1. The federal tax bill restoring the ten percent tax became law March 15. The tax had been reduced to Ithree percent effective January 1. The increase is a result of the Tax Adjustment Act of 1966, enacted to help meet the country's need for additonal revenues during the Viet Nam emergency. The new law reinstates the role- phone tax at ten percent until April l, 1968, when it will be reduced to 1 percent, ad then completely eli- minates it on January 1, 1969. "Under the law, the higher tax rate will be applied on local and long distance telephone service bills dated March 25 and thereafter." "If the government needs addition- al revenues beyond January, 1969, we hope that'a solution other than continuing this discriminatory tax on telephone service can be found," Dan Johnston, local manager, said. "In the meantime, we will continue to collect the tax and pass it on to the government, as we have done in the past." Federal excise taxes have been col- lected on long distance telephone service off and on since World War I, and on local service since 1941.
