Lccals Attend Farm
Meet At Henderson
Home-owned farms and home- j
grown food were planned at a meet- '
ing held in Henderson, Texas, from
which county representatives cf the
Farm Security Administration and
the Extension Service have recently
returned. Attending from this county
were: C. Metz Heald, Tom Dean, A. ;
E. Horn, Louis Long, Alfred C.
Crocker and Miss Grace Lawrence.
The home-grown food program has
put relief families back on their feet
throughout this part of the state,
it was shown in reports from FSA
supervisors, who require that borrow-
ers produce their own living at home
and also grow adequate feed for their
livestock. Texas horrowers from FSA
now have net assets running up to
$1,000 and more per family, as com-
pared with less than $100 two or
three years ago. Ten to twenty-five
percent of them will pay off their
loans in full this year and be able to
get future financing from local banks
which previously considered them in-
Prospects for home ownersihp by
tenants were explained in an address
by C. M. Evans, Dallas, regional di-
rector of the Farm Security Adminis-
tration. He 'said that for the present
year, ending next July, twenty or
thirty counties will be seelected, and
in each of these loans will be made for
purchase of not less than five and
not more than ten farms. Counties will
be selected by a state advsiory com-
mittee. The following year, funds
now authorize'! by Congress will per-
mit purchase of 450 farms, as com-
pared with only 180 in the state this
year. The third year, funds now au-ss
thorized will permit purchase of 900.
"This is a very small, demenstration-
al beginning, to blaze a trail," Evans
said. "Eventually we expect this pro-
gram to be extended until every qual-
ified tenant can become owner of the
land he cultivates." The plan allows
forty years time, with interest at
three per cent. Applications must be
made to county committees which will
be named in each of the twenty or
thirty selected counties.

Technician in Charge
Soil conservation practices being
used in the Jacksonville CCC camp
area evidence^ Unusually good results
last week during the five-inch rain.
Inspections Jiave been made over a
large percentage of the farms coop-
erating with the camp and very little
damage ha3 been reported.
This rain was very beneficial to
farmers in several ways. First, the
good season is a great help to the fall
sown strip crops, cover crops nd pas-
ture mixtures. Second, it has helped
in locating the weak points of their
Soil Conservation program. For in-
stance, many terraces are not yet up
to' specifications with 18 inches ef-
fective height and 20 foot base width,
or there may be some low places that
need filling. This rain has pointed
out these places very plainly and ev-
ery farmer is urged to repair these
places as soon as the fields are dry
enough for field work again.
