Those who delay may fail to get them later because of the Defense Pro
gram and shortage of materials. Farmers are warned and urged to act
now in accordance with the following program iostered by the Worth Car
olina Agricultural Extension Service in conjunction with a nation-wide
movement. Read and Act on this at once. Do it now, even though you
need nothing more than a bolt or a hoe.
1. In the "Food forFreedom" program, farmers
- - - must produce more food, with fewer men.
2. Greatly increased use of types of farm ma-
chinery is indicated.
3. Estimated need of 120 to 125 of normal de
mand for new machines.
4. Metal available for only 75-80 of normal de
.... mand for new machines.
5. Shortage must be made up by better use of
ALL present machines.
1. Order ONLY such NEW farm equipment as is
2. Repair and recondition present equipment.
a. Every farmer to make careful, machine by
machine check for broken, weak or worn
parts USING CHECK SHEET or similar
list. 'These may be had from dealers or
county agent's office.
b. Explain USE OF CHECK LIST (to be du
plicated in county as needed) why so
simple a list is used.
c. Classify needed parts, by dealers, or make
PLACE ORDER for all repair parts AT
ONCE. This does not mean just talking it
over with the dealer, butmeans ACTUAL
LY PLACING SIGNED ORDER. This is
the most important IMMEDIATE STEP in
the. entire program for this reason: Manu
facturers will not be given priority for
metal except upon dealer orders backed up
by signed, Bona-Fide orders from consumer.
The usual practice of waiting until just
before a machine is needed in the field, and
then going to town for a repair part, will
not work this spring. THERE WON'T BE
ANY REPAIR PARTS THERE, unless the
order is placed AT ONCE.
Order enough io take care of normal repairs
for 1942. DO NOT HOARD. '
Remember 10 lbs. of repair metal may put
1,000 lbs of machine in working condition.
Order sufficient but no more replace-
, ment parts, such as mower guards and
knife sections, and accessories such as
. . binder twine. .'..
3. Rehabilitate abandoned or discarded machines,
a. Many machines, discarded because of mi
nor breaks, can be reconditioned and used,
b. Change in farming method or ciop may
have made a machine useless on one farm,
but serviceable on another. SELL IT or
TRADE IT to someone who can use it.
4. Determine availability of machines for "cus
torn" work. Farmers are urged to make
arrangements with machine owner EARLY.
5. Cooperate with every possible agency,
a. Farm Equipment Dealers The dealers are
100 for this program. With little new
machinery, to sell, they will devote much
time to this BEPAIR PROGRAM.
b. Vocational Agricultural High School Shops
These shops, in many instances, are
equipped with tools, suitable for doing re
pair work. The teachers are behind this
program. Work with them in every detail,
c. Public garages, machine shops and black
smith shops. These shops are equipped
for all types of repair work.
