The bill as passed by the Senate was amended to provide that any farm owner or operator who, because of serving in the armed forces of the United States, was unable to plant cotton or wheat on his farm would have the same protection as the owner or operator who coop; erated in the war-food program by growing war crops.

After careful consideration, the committee was of the opinion that, since acreage allotments for peanuts are established only for farms which have grown peanuts in any of 3 immediately preceding years, the same protection should be accorded to the producer of peanuts who served in the armed forces of the United States and amended the bill accordingly. In view of the fact that peanuts are a vital war crop, the committee was of the opinion that producers of peanuts should not be encouraged to change to other crops by having their peanut allotments protected if they did change. Since that past acreage of peanuts is one of the elements in determining the size of peanut allotments, the bill, as amended, would authorize the Secretary to adjust upward the past acreage of peanuts grown on a farm, where the Senter or operator was serving in the armed forces of the United States, to the extent that the acreage used for growing peanuts on such farm in a given year is below the normal history of the farm. No amendments to existing law are necessary to take

care of a similar situation with respect to cotton and wheat.

respect to tobacco, corn, and rice, the provisions of the present aware more liberal. Thus, a tobacco farm does not lose its old status in the program if tobacco is produced thereon at any time during the preceding 5 years; corn need not be grown in any particular year in

farm to retain its old status; and a rice producer does not lose bis status as an old grower until he has been out of production for 5 years. Tobacco acreage allotments are also frozen through the marketing year 1946-47. ion that no amendments to existing law are necessary at the present

The committee was therefore of the opintime to protect allotments for these crops for producers who grow war crops or who are serving in the armed forces of the United States.
