At the business session, the club voted to donate five-dollars to the Red Cross War Fund- The Farm Security Administration's loaning program is being directed toward the immediate expansion of dairy, hog, poultry, feed crop and gafden enterprises to aid FSA borrowers and other farmers in meeting increased war production quotas, according to Erland Johnson, FSA supervisor- Mr.Johnson stated that some months ago changes were made in the agricultural policy and increased production was asked. Since our country has entered the war, it will no doubt become necessary to set new and larger goals for many agricultural products. FSA is working closely with the AAA and county war boards on increased production plans. "In line with this policy" Mr. Johnson added, "every effort will be made tc finance farmers who are unable to secure credit from other sources. Loan funds will be made.available for. the, purchase of cows, hogs, poultry, seed, feed and other equipment or supplies necessary to place their farms on this higher production basis. In certain cases, FSA will help provide suitable shelter f orpoultry, dairy cattle or hogs through use of temporary shelters and remodeling of present structures. These loans can be made for a period of one to five years at low interest rates. "Children of any farm family who are members of 4-H, FFA or similar clubs may obtain loans for the purchase of livestock, feed, garden fences, and various other needs of their project work. An expanded home food production program is receiving aoded attention this year in order that all families will provide for themselves and thus prevent a need for their buying from com mercial supplies. Mr. Johnson expects some borrowers to have garden products to sell. Present borrower families, in cooperation with FSA supervisors, are now revising both their farm and garden plans upward for the coming year, considering the production of needed food—the most important contribution they can make to victory. Mr. Johnson explained that loans are also available for needs other than those given. The purpose, however, must be one that will enable to borrower to improve his own condition and contribute to the nation's "Food for Victory" program. Interested fam ilies in the county should contact Mr. Johnson at his office in the courthouse at Walker. Roy Lee Auxiliary 2617 urges all students entering the national essay contest "Unity for Victory" to have essays ready for judges by February 22- Prizes are offered to both the Backus and local students for winning manuscripts.
