Farm Garden Campaign
By Jimmy McFatridge
"A Carden is like a magic spot
— you plant a little, reap a little.”
The State Extension Services
have made live-at-home or better
Jiving on the farm a major feature
os their work for many years.
So it is that this year, in the
1942 “all-out” campaign. Miss
Johnny LaRue, county home
demonstration agent, has taken
the initiative in stressing to the
people, the importance of a farm
garden on every Red River county
In a recent discussion with Miss
LaRue, pertaining to the
nephews and nieces

Another important item of great
significance is the fact that if our
Red River county farmers can
adopt a live-at-home program this
year, and we feel they will do their
best to do it, then that will make
available more commercial sup-
plies of vegetables for our boys in
the army, tor our industrial work-
ers, for our village and city people
and for our friends across the
waters who are bearing the brunt
of the battle.
Miss LaRue urges every farm
family to grow a garden this year.
it is hoped that Red River
county will have 4000 good gar
dens. Miss LaRue urges you to
do your part in seeing to it that
you have one.
