The number of tenant farmers
in Cleveland county has increased!
by 8,5 percent in the last 10 years,
according to statistics published by
the University News Letter.
As a result only 1,658 farms in th'
county are tilled by their owners.
Sixty-five other counties In the
state, however, had a greater in
crease of tenants in a decade than
The increase in Hutherford since
1920 was listed as 16 percent, 1,473
farms there being tilled! by the
owner. The increase in Burke,
where 1,319 farms are tilled by own
ers. was 9.6. The increase of 7.9 in
Ltncolnton was less than that in
Cleveland, as was the 1.9 increas
in Gaston. Tenancy decreased In
Catawba county by 7.8 percent in
the decade and 1,813 farms there
are tilled by owners.
Speaking of the evils of the grow

"There are only twelve counties!
with more farms operated by own-i
ers than a decade ago. There are
elghU-eight counties with fewer!
tarrr\?s who own their land.
“The'decrease in farm owners ha
not been due to consolidation of i
