The office of the Association is well located in the middle of the
citrus belt, so that, with a minimum Of travel the citrus growers can be
contacted with the least possible deliy and rendered the service for which
this organization was designed.
The Florida Citrus Production Cr#eit Association was organized by the
Farm Credit Administration for the so purpose of handling the citrus growers'
production needs; and is directed by ptgroup of influential citrus men who have
selected an office and field staff whose interest is in the industry only.
The Association is so set up that it is a source of short-term credit
for all who are in the citrus industry and wish to participate, giving them
dependable credit to take care of their needs such as the following:
Fertilizer, spray materials,
taxes, insurance, etc.; necessary
ment, grove heaters and fuel; and
of production revenue.

During times when some forms of nitrogen are not available and other forms are
relatively expensive, it may be desirable to make an effort to get additional cover crop
seed of some leguminous plants so as to help furnish the nitrogen required for your trees.
It is a proven fact that an over-load shortens the life of our tires. A 50% over-
load gives us 50% tire mileage. Speed too, is a contributing factor. Tires that will
go 10,000 miles at 50 miles an hour will go 18,000 miles at 35 miles an hour. It is
important that you run within the 35 mile restriction; Washington says it will be easier
to get gasoline and additional tires, if we do.

TIRES ON ALL OPERATING VEHICLES MUST BE INSPECTED PERIODICALLY
TUNER NEW PLAN
After the initial inspection, passenger car owners who get the minimum ration of
gasoline -- the basic A book -- under the Nation-wide rationing that becomes effective
November 22, will be required to get their tires inspected every 4 months at official
OPA inspection stations. The same requirement applies to those who hold only the "D"
gasoline book for motor cycles. Persons who get gasoline books permitting them to drive
greater distances in a given period must get inspection every 2 months. Commercial ve-
hicle tires must be inspected every 2 months or every 5,000 miles, whichever comes first.

When essential war industries and manufacturers with high wages, not to mention
the army and navy, compete with us for our labor, it would seem necessary that we
should not be competitors among ourselves so as to cause labor pirating. United efforts
among growers to stabilize and assist in these labor problems will be found a worthwhile
