Imperative That North Carolina Farmers Live
At Home This Year; Is Blame Against Want
Three more Cleveland county

i ea.son why North Carolina must
"live at home” to a greater extern!
than ever before and why fanner
must “make a living on the farm
by producing enough food and feed
stuff* to make them independe;„|
of economic condition.' generate
were stressed here by Governor O ,
Max Gardner in an address ove
radio station VVPTF, in setting asirii
this week beginning ae the si.
Home Week in the state;
The first consideration is of i
course tiie raising of .sufticient ieeit;
and foodstuffs so that the farmer
of tire state will be leas dependent]
upon cotton and tobacco. Governor ^
Gardner said: But there are other :
considerations almo* as imported!
which mutt also be considered u.,
connection with the live-at-home
movement. especially the presen>
serious economic situation, taxation;
and the problem of school support,j
all of which are touched upon by
Tn discussing the food production
stigle of the live-at-home move
ment. Governor Gardner said:
The "live-at-home week" seeks to
do two things, first, to encourage
every farmer to grow enough food
and feed to be self-supporting, and
second, to awaken in tire hearts of
those who Uve in tire cities and
towns in North Carolina to give j
preference to North Carolina farm
and other products In thetv buying.
•Already there is much reliable
Information to indicate the effects
of the live-at-home movement have
been far-reaching. Last year, as a
result of our campaign, wc reduced
lire cotton acreage 234,000 ueres and
increased the corn acreage 271,000
acres. The yield from this corn was
Increased 1,040,000 acres over the
1929 corn crop and it brought a
higher price. All ol tile home con
sumption crops were increased as
follows: Corn, 13 per cent; cowpeas,
19 per cent; sweet potatoes, 25 per
rent: Irish potatoes, 21 per cent;
commercial truck 22 per cent; and
curphuin cane, 24 per cent.
"Tlie value of food and feed crops
in North Carolina In 1931 was $16,*
544,000 greater than in 1929, accord
ing to the U. S. department of ag
riculture. This year I urge the farm
ers to still further increase their J
food and feed crops to the extent
that at least $40,000,000 more inj
these crops will be produced thain
In 1930. This can be done through!
the planting of pure-bred, certified j
seed and the use of more pure bred j
Governor Gardner then called at
tention to the fact that the farmers
received *80,000.000 less for their,
dothm and tobacco crops in 1930;
than they did In 1937, and that If
they had not lost this $80,000,000 inj
the last three years that the-state!
would not now need, to worry about
it.-, economic situation.
Despite constant warning anci
pleading to reduce their acreage,
tobacco tanners in eastern North
Carolina in 1930 increased their to
bacco acreage 10.483 acres, Gover
nor Gardner pointed out, which
mad' the low prices paid tor to
bacco even tower. He also called at
tention to the fact that last fall the
tobacco farmers, in a mass meeting
in Raleigh, went on record as fav
oring a reduction of 23 per cent, in
this year's tobacco acreage over that
of 19S0. and stressed the importance
of carrying out this resolution.. Tire
cotton acreage, however, was de
creased 203.571 acres in 1930.
“But we are still devoting top
much acreage to cotton and tobac
co and more acres of food and feed
stuffs are needed to restore the
economic prosperity of our state,"
Governor Gardner said. Then, in
passing from the strictly agricul
tural phases to n discussion of the
present economic situation, Gover
“In successfully meeting this sit
uation there must be common in
terest. Everyone must contribute his
part. Banks and time merchants
mush help. Landowners and tenants
' must help. Fertilizer dealers must
help. The various state agencies
must help. The schools must help.
It is a battle against want, hunger,
and disaster. Our people are wthing
to work and are not discouraged.”
In order to relieve this situation,
everything possible mult be done to
reduce taxes and to see that every
tax dollar is spent to give the ut
most service, the governor said,
pointing out that the live-ax-home
movement is designed to help farm
ers grow more crops with which they
can pay taxes.
