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
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

to rts are being made to have
more productivity from the land
each year. '
The dwelling haj a new root,
new siding and new storage
room in the basement. The barn
waa repaired in the meantime. A
new barn pattern has been cut
and hopes are to construct a new
and better barn in the near fu
ture. Improvementa have been
made in building each year since
purchase of the farm.
A new spring was located and
water piped to sink in the kitch
en. More convenience? have been
added to the home, refrigerator,
-washing machine, new stove, hot
and cold running water.
Mrs. Bentley cans from 1200 to
1900 quarts each year. Plenty of
apples, strawberries, blackber
ries, meats and vegetables are
canned for family use.
This is a happy family and
proud of the fact that they secur
ed a loan to purchase their farm.
The FHA personnel are also
proud of this family. They have
been most cooperative in every
project on their farm. By the end
of 1048, the Bentley's will have
paid their loan in full and be
free of indebtnesa. In Mr. Bent
ley's words. "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
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." ,

request for suggestions. 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.

that. You start your engine, set

You press the accelerator ? and

You speed up, slow down, halt com
