: A Home Necessity
A home without a water system
could be worseit might have no
heat to keep it warm in winter.
But next to heat, a good water sys
tem is the most needed convenience
for the farm .. home, said Rachel
Everett, Johnston County home agent
of the State College extension ser
vice. And a fairly complete water sys-
tern can be installed for less than
the cost of 'an 'electric refrigerator,
she pointed out
Johnston County home demonstra

interest in water, systems lately, she
continued, and at every club meeting
water is a subject of discussion. .,

Security Farm Tenure
s - Goal
ThaFarm Security ' Administration
of the U.' 9. Department of Agricul
ture will stress better leasing ar
rangements between i landlords - and
tenants in the interest of both parties
to the contract and as an aid to the
success of its ' program, ' John - H.
Pope, . County Rural Rehabilitation
Supervisor for the FSA announced
from his office In Edenton.'
' According to Mr. Porei the need
fur better- leaaecouuavv -Hluiling
such provisions as longer, rental; pe
riods, security to the landlord for
the protection of his property and
security to the tenant for reimburse
ment for improvements made by him,
has been brought convincingly to the
attention of supervisors . during the
paBt two years in connection with
their ' program to ; help : financially
handicapped farmers and tenants to
get on their feet again by means of
Rehabilitation supervised loans, a
work which since. Resettlement's re
cent . liquidation, is being carried on
by supervisors under Jhe newly estab
lished Farm Security Administration.
A large percentage of farmers need
ing these Rehabilitation loans are
tenants, he said, and it has been
found easier' to work, out a sound
farm plan for families who. have sat
isfactory 'leasing contracts.
; In many ; eases I the : applicant for
these loans' needs credit! not only for
livestock; and . " equipment---article8
which can be taken with him if he is
required to move but also credit for
soil improvement items, such as lime
and seed for permanent' pasture, the
returns from which the .tenant will
not be able to realize in dollars and
cents the first year and which he can
not take away with him when he
moves. ' i
Rehabilitation supervised loans are
repayable over a period, of from one
to five years, the longer period being
provided to iriv the borrower mora
time in which topay for these items
which are, expected to produce results
over a period of years.. , Where' such
applicant is a tenant, -', a satisfactory
leasing arrangement makes it easier,
other qualifications and . conditions
being favorable, to work out a prac
tical farm plan with suitable crop
rotation and to extend the-Joan over
the -longer period. In many cases, it
has been found impossible to work
out a suitable farm plan , or to ap-

has been secured.
Now that the Farm Security Ad
ministration has been set up to tackle
the farm -tenancy problem,' security
of farm .tenure, whether by tenants
or owners, has been, recognized , as
the real goal, Mr. Pope said. '
"One? read 'to security of tenure is

that loans to buy farms can be made
to only a small percentage of tenants
desiring . farms of their own,- The
Rural Rehabilitation supervised, loans
(which do not include money for, land
purchase) will continue as 4he major
activity, of the FSA.. Therefore the
second road to security of tenure
must be emphasised, namely, better
leases, improved relationship between
landlord and snt ; The i . problem
resolves itself into 'one of developing
a . leasing contract I whkh: will ; rive

Mr. Pope stated that his agency
is working hand - . in hand with 'the
Extension Service, Agricultural col
leges and other agencies whkh have
been stressing the need for better
leases in an educational way but that
FSA finds it necessary to meet the
problem in a practical', way and be
cause of the fact that his ' agency's
loan and farm management system is
designed to wprk in the interest , of
both landlord and tenant, , it is' be

better leases Jus, been 'I found 'and

operation of the above named educa
tional agencies, his common incentive
