ricultural Experiment . Station, has
Just been released and is available to
all citizens who request
The cover picture, which ; portrays
a beautiful . country home amid
setting, of snow-laden evergreens,
points up the lead-off article dealing
wnu uie rum uuMBing yrvuiem in
North Carolina. Dr. Sels C. Mayo;
associate professof of rural sociology
at State College and author , of the
article, writes that low income is the
chief cause of poor housing. "In
1939 the net Income per farm worker
in North Carolina was $518, of which
only $357 was cash (
Dr. Mayo goes on to oint" 6ut that
farm families often actyely resist
efforts to improve their housing-. He
cites the farmer who claims that "A
r .-wioui.3 " won't ' oild a rew : 1 ,.rn,
1 t a r-""-'.barn ; ay mi ? n rew
house possible." lhe farm family
too often considers their house a non
productive element in the whole farm
enterprise," lie .. declares. Dr. Mayo
also scorns the idea that the- log cabin
is a hardening element which betters
the farm' family father than makes it
Some of the suggestions which Dr.
Mayo v makes for improving farm
housing are (1) j laws that, will Set
minimum standards for rented houses
similar to laws already in effect, for
city apartments; (2) long term and
written contracts that will encourage
tenants and sharecroppers to improve
their dwellings; . (3) continued Fed
eral aid for rural housing; and (4)
community groups set up to study and
improve rural housing.-' '-. r
Dr. Mayo's article is one of seven
which appear r in the 1 publication.
Others cover Such subjects as poultry
breeding, picking cotton- with mach-
new varieties of" muscadine
grap !: ar. 5 steps : for ' controlling
