JFSA Borrower Has Happy Home mmmmmmmm? ?? * Roby D. Bentley, Watauga County TO borrower, regrets the fact that be did not start on the road tQ farm ownership earlier In life. The Bentley's secured a tenant purchase loan through the Hum Security Administration now Farmers Home Administra tion. during January 1044 to purchase a 81.0 acre farm near Valla Grucis. He was happy to know that the FMA committee bad selected him to locate a farm. Prior to this year, the Bent ley's had farmed on 1-2 to 1-3 share rent with limited acreage in crops. Th? major port of the family income came from ?lay labor' at $1.00 per day which made a struggle some year* to make a go with a family of eleven. .The Bentley'a came to the FHA office during 1941 to discuss buying a farm and secur ing a loan to purchase cows. This was their first step toward purchasing a farm the THA way. He continued to build up work ing capital to be in line for pur chase of a farm. During IMS, he located the 61.0 acre tract of land and bought it. Although the farm was some what rocky, rugged, gullies with thickets Scattered here and there, the Bentley's went to work to re pair fencing, lime and phosphate KODAK FILM DEVELOPED AMD PRINTED "EXPERT WORKMANSHIP" Specialist* in CHILD and BABY PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTO COPIES ?

"We could have con tinued as tenants and had little or nothing. We regret that we did not make vise of the oppor tunity to become a farm owner earlier. Although we do not have the best farm in the county, we hav? a home and a place of our own. Something to live and work for, what is life without a home of your own." Suggestions On Use Bumper Corn Crop feed hogs out to full weight; include more corn in broiler mashes; finish beef animals earlier this fall; and convert to bacco barns, empty tenant houses, potato grading sheds and unused tobacco warehouses as emergency storage facilities. j These were a few of the sug gestions offered this week by State College Extension Service specialists for handling the big-, gest corn crop in the history ofj North Carolina. The suggestions were made at a meeting 'called by David S. Weaver, assistant director of the Extension Service. Mr. Weaver outlined the problem by citing the latest crop forecasts. Nortn Carolina is expected to have a 74-rAillion bushel com crop, ne said. "Last year we had an above average crop of 65-million bushels, since the ten-year aver age is only 51 million. Counting a six-million bushel carryover, we will have 80 million bushels I to store or sell." , In response to Mr. Weavers FOR THE BEST . .

Jack Kelley, extension swine specia list, said that obviously it's time to start feeding pigs out to full weight again. "North Carolina farmers have often marketed, their hogs at weights under 180 pounds," he said. "Feed short ages in past years have encour aged this trend. With a normal feed-livestock price relationship, farmers will now get their great est return by marketing hogs atj or near 240 pounds." ? John W. Weaver, agricultural] engineer for the experiment eta tion, suggests that farmers con vert any empty buildings they have into a temporary storage bin. "The main thing is to get a roof over it and a floor under it," he said. The specialists agreed that the biggest opportunity tor conserv ing the crop lies in the hands of the small farmer who usually sells his corn in the fall and then has to buy expensive feed during the winter. If small pro ducers can rig up some satisfac tory storage facilities, they need not worry about the low price of corn this fall nor the high price of feed next winter. LOST KEYS CAUSE DEATH National City, Calif.? William Williams, 65, misplaced his house keys. Attempting to climb into the house through a win dow, he was killed when the window fell and pinned him to the sill. The coroner's report stated, however, that he died of a heart attack? caused by the shock of the falling window, and not because of the injuries re ceived from the window. UNCLE, NEPHEW, 17.
