Home Food, Keeping
In Efficient Farming
Keeping close tab on money-
spent running a tarm and a farm
home and getting a large part of
the family food from the farm
itself are marks of efficient farnv
ing, William Krause, local coun-
ty supervisor of the Farmers
Home Administration, said this
Besides lending money to farm
families, Mr. Krause, said, his
agency helps them with farm
and home planning problems and
supplies technical aids in farm
and home management so they
can make the most of their land
and family labor resources and
repay their debts.
Farm families are consum-
ers as well as producers, he
said, and families with Farm-
ers Home Administration
loans call on the supervisor
for aid in planning expendi-
tures, He helps them get
started on keeping farm rec-
ords, and those records usu-
ally show that family living
Items can easily amount to
one-fourth of the gross farm,
A good farm garden, when
feasible, is an essential part of
every farm and home plan for
the family that is seriously try-1
ing to save money, make the
best of opportunities, and repay
debts, he added.
He pointed to butchering home
meat supplies, producing, their
own milk and eggs,., and proper
conservation cf all home produc-
ed food as being among- other
factors in efficient farm and
home planning. He said a good
garden can save a family any-
where from $100 to $500 a year.
The Farmers Home Adminis-
tration urges its borrowers to turn
to the county home demonstra-
tion agent for help with family
living problems. As a result,
many of the wives are joining
Extension women’s clubs and in
some places new clubs are being
formed to include the young
farm homemakers. The home
demonstration agent also helps
with individual home needs such
as planning kitchen improve-
ments, money management, food
production and conservation, ana
Mr. Krause said he and the
home demonstration agent.
Miss Louise King, are proud
of the p rogress Farmers
Home Administration fami-
lies are making in better
farm home planning.
The Farmers Home Adminis-
tration, makes loans to farm
families ■ to improve their farm-
ing operations, or to buy, im-
prove, develop, or enlarge their
farms, and under certain condi-
tions to meet emergency needs.
The loans do not compete with
commercial or cooperative credit
but the agency does supplement
other lenders’ services by pro-
viding credit and technical as-
sistance to farmers whose credit
needs cannot be met from other
sources. These families are help-
ed to improve their fanning and
farm income to the point where
they can graduate to the use of
regular credit sources.

nature and our type of farming

Good Old Grandma
A stenographer turned up for
work one morning flashing a
huge diamond ring. It was too
much for some of her fellow
workers who began casting some
catty remarks about it. One ask-
ed, “Where did you get THAT?”
Oh,” , replied the steno airly,
“when grandma died she left
$1,000 for a stone in her memory
