The rural rehabilitation supervised
loan program will continue as hereto
fore, under the newly established
Farm Security Administration, of the
V. S. Department of Agriculture, T.
Newton Cook, county supervisor in
rharge of rural rehabilitation work in
Haywood and Buncombe counties an
nounced early this week, following as
surance received from (ieorge S.
Mitchell, regional director of the Farm
Security Administration in Raleigh.
Mr. Cook stated that the Bankhoad
Joncs Farm Tenant Act, which the
Farm Security Administration will ad
minister, provides for continuation of
the rural rehabilitation and farm debt
adjustment work which he represents
in this section and that he has been
instructed to carry on substantially
as before, under the new agency.
Rehabilitation loans accompanied
by farm and home management mi
vice for county supervisors are made
by the government to financially dis
tressed farm families w ho hold Out
hope of making a conn back - whether
on their own land or rented land -but
who are unable to secure proper credit
from other sources to make acrop or
to purchase needed livestock and
In addition to the rural rchabilita
tion program which will be continued
as an important phase of the new
agency, the Farm Security Adminis
tration will conduct the tenant loan
program, as provided in the harm Ten
ant Act, for the purchase and improve
ment of farms for selected tenant
farmers, and will complete unfinished
farmstead projects, including those
started by the Resettlement Adminis
tration and those turned over to that
organization from other agencies.
Details concerning the handling of
applications for the new tenant loans
will be announced later by the regional
office, Mr. Cook has been advised.
Land use planning and submarginal
land purchase activities, further pro
vided for in the Rankhead-Jones Act,
have been entrusted by the Secretary
of Agriculture to the Bureau of Ag
ricultural Economics. This means that
former Land Utilization work and that
to be carried out under the new act
will be continued through a Land Util
ization Division under the Bureau of
Agricultural Economics, while the
Farm Security Administration will
conduct the tenant purchase and rural
rehabilitation programs and complete
farmstead projects now under develop
ment. Thus, the functions of the
former Resettlement Administration
and those added by the Farm Tenant
Act have been divided between the
Farm Security Administration and the
Land Use program of the Bureau of
Agricultural Economics, according to
the statement received by Mr. Cook
from the regional office.

Question: Is it necessary to use
fertilizer under winter hay crops ?
Answer: In many sections it is
customary to sow fall crops after
corn or cotton, or tobacco without fer
tilization, it being supposed that
enough fertilizer is left from the
spring application. Some fertilizer
is left and the fall crop will use some
of it, but except on very fertile soil, it

foul typhoid is present in many of the
poultry docks. This, disease being

Foul typhoid is a disease caused by
a germ. It is highly contageous and
is very fatal to foul. The disease
may occur at any season of the year,
but it is more prevalent from October
to April. It is not usually found in
very young chicks, but may occur
any time after the birds are fully
feathered out. Foul typhoid is often
confined with cholera and commonly
called by that name.

Kill all sick birds and either burn

while there is any sign of the disease

Quarantine your birds and do not
allow visitors- on the premises nor

Question: . H-.w -'much time should
elapse after - a enw freshens.; before
she can be put on full feed?
Answer: This depends upon the
physical condition of the. cow,, but as
a usual thing it requires about three
weeks after, freshening before the
animal, is on full feed. The first day's
feed should consist of bran mash.
For the next four day's feed the grain
ration should consist of wheat bran
and ground oats in equal parts. On
the fifth day the cow may be started
on the regular milking ration and
gradually brought to full feed in about
A nine-fold increase in wheat yield

L. H. Kent, Madison county farmer.
The soil is of the Ifaysville clay

slope that makes it subject to erosion
unless planted to close-growing crops.
