Repair Urged By Defense
In a letter 1 from Secretary of
Agriculture Claude R.. Wickard,
every farmer in this county is be
ing' urged to repair his farm ma
chinery now instead of waiting un
til Spring. .The Secretary has ask
ed the County USDA Defense
Board to organize and carry out,
before' March 15, a complete farm
machinery repair and recondition
The .secretary's appeal points ou
the need and urgency of the farm
machinery - repair move, and asks
support and aid of manufacturers,
merchants, mechanics, blacksmiths,
schools and colleges. i
The letter, in part, follows :
"The year of 1942 will be a
critical one for farmers. . . . The
Food For Freedom program calls
for record farm production. At
the same time,, defense will limit
available farm labor. Farmers who
are- unable to get enough labor
will have to rely more and more
upon farm machinery but the de
fense p -rogram will mean much
less new farm machinery ira 1942.
. . . You can help your country
and yourself by repairing your old
machinery, now, rather than atr
tempting to get new machinery
."The Government is takhug steps
to provide, as much steel and other
metal as may be needed " for all
necessary repairs for farm ma'
chinery in 1942. To be sure of a
supply of necessary repair parts,
manufacturers need to know how
much will be required. The only
way to be sure of repair parts is
to order them immediately. Fail
ure to make repairs how may mean
a crop loss later.
The Secretary suggested the fol
lowing things to be done at once:
Check over your old machinery,

"Order necessary parts from
"If parts cannot be obtained,
notify your County USDA Defense
"As replacement needs arise
throughout the year, use substitutes
for steel and iron wherever pos
sible." The Secretary's appeal points
out that in many areas, county
agents and vocational agricultural
teachers are arranging for instruc
tion in . farm machinery repair.
This, he adds, should be taken ad
vantage of by farmers or members
of farmer families.
