To FHA Committee
George C. Gibson, of Franklin,
Route 4. Is the new member of the
Farmers Home Administration
county committee, Ray F. Hemp
hill, county supervisor, announced
Mr. Gibson's appointment be
came effective July 1. The com
mittee determines the eligibility of
local farmers who apply for
Farmers Home Administration
The new committeeman oper
ates a farm and a livestock auc
tion business. Mr. Gibson succeeds
Freeman E. Hasting, of Route 2,
whose term expired this year.
The other two members are Har
ley Stewart, of Route 1, and Earl
A. Justice, of Route 4, both of
whom are farmers.
Each agricultural county in the
country has a similar committee
of three members who are respon
sible for determining loan appli
cants' eligibility, certifying the
value of farms being purchased or
improved through Farmers Home
Administration loans, and making
recommendations on loan ap
provals and loan servicing actions.
Each member is named for a 3
year term and one appointment
expires each year. A member com
pleting his 3-year term cannot
succeed himself. At least two of
the members must be farmers.
The committee works with the
county supervisor In connection
with all types of loans. These in
clude farm operating loans and
loans to buy, improve, or enlarge
efficient family-type farms in this
area. They also include loans to
farmers or their non-profit asso
ciations to establish and carry on
approved soil and water conserva
tion practices, Including improv
ing permanent pastures, terracing,
soil erosion measures, farmstead
water systems, irrigation, drain
age and many other conservation
Most of the soil and water con
servation loans and loans to buy
or Improve farms are made from
funds advanced by private lenders
and insured by the agency. Some
of these loans, however, and all
loans for operating farms, are
from annually appropriated funds.
No loan of any type can be ap
proved for an applicant whose
credit needs can be handled ade
quately by other credit sources.
The regular office staff of the
Farmers Home Administration
serving Macon County consists of
the county supervisor, Mr. Hemp
hill, and county office clerk, Mrs.
Meda Bryson. The office is located
in the Agricultural Building.
By T. H. FAGG
Macon County farmers in the
past 10 years have made much
progress in the production of feed
for their livestock. This has been
particularly true in the increase in
quality roughage In the form of
improved permanent pastures,
silage, and hay, such as alfalia
and good grass and clover.
Even with this excellent increase
in the production of quality rough
age, there is still room and a great
need for even more production of
these crops. No matter what type
of livestock a farmer is raising it
is a necessity that he raise all the
feed he can on his own farm. It
is also a necessity that he produce
this feed as cheaply as possible.
The cheapest feed that can be
raised on our farms are roughages.
Also, by producing roughages of
high protein content, such as al
falfa, ladlno clover, etc., the farm
er is cutting down on the amount
of protein concentrate he will
have to purchase. This is a great
saving to him as this protein feed
is the highest priced feed item a
One thing I feel we have been
rather lax about In Macon County
is the growing of supplemental
grazing crops, to take up the slack
when our permanent pastures are
short or not producing due to ad
verse weather conditions. This is
particularly true with our winter
grazing crops. By the use of winter
grazing crops a farmer can get
more pounds of meat on an ani
mal, more milk in the pail, and at
the same time save money and
labor when the animal harvests
the crop instead of the farmer.
Not only is this true but also these
winter grazing crops act as soil
conserving crops in that they pre
vent soil erosion on cropland and
furnish an excellent green manure
crop to turn under In the spring.
They can also be used, if the graz
ing becomes excessive, as spring
hay crops and to put Into the silo
as insurance against short summer
Now is the time for farmers to
think seriously about their rough
age needs for the coming year. It
?will soon be time for fall seeding

Time . . .
By ROBERT SCHMIDT
Garden crops are beginning to
mature and where there are sur
pluses the question naturally
arises, why can't I save my own
seed for next year's crop? That's
a good question, but not so easily
Different crops must be handled
differently. The home saving of
snapbean and lima bean seed is
not recommended because of seri
ous diseases which are carried
over on the seed. Certain crops j
will cross readily in the field and
therefore the seed saved will not
come true to variety.
Contrary to the common idea,
cucumbers, muskmelons, squash
and watermelons will not cross
with each other, even if planted
close together. However, different
varieties of these crops will cross
with each other. Therefore, if you
have more than one variety of
watermelons in your garden it
would not be safe to save seed.
Hot peppers will cross with sweet
peppers, and the resulting progeny
will all be hot.
Beans and tomatoes usually are
self-pollinated so there is no dan
ger of crossing even if different
varieties are planted next to one
another. Corn is pollinated by the
wind and varieties will mix badly
if not isolated. Cabbage, collards.
kale, and broccoli will cross with
each other if they bloom at the
same time and so will the must
ards and turnips.
Seed should not be saved from
hybrid tomatoes, cucumbers,
squash, or corn because these are
first generation crosses and will
not come true from the seed
that you save.
In saving vegetable seed it is

Timely Farm Questions
Q. Do shade trees ever need 10
A. Yes. Since the natural ac
cumulation of decaying leaves
normally found In the forest is
usually lacking under yard trees,
fertilizer needs to be supplied to
keep enough of the necessary ele
ments in the soil.
Q. Should you treat crop-afflict
A. Some specialists say that
since the chicken is a low-priced
product, it's best to put them in
the pot rather than try to cure
them. The birds are perfectly safe
for food if marketed while still
in good flesh.
Q. How much does an irrigation
A. The cost of an irrigation
system for an individual farm
varies with the size and type of
equipment needed, the distance
the water must be pumped, and
and crops to be irrigated.
