Others will follow. Editor. BY THE FARM FAMILY CONTEST EDITOR. DANVERS. "When the depres sion of '29 came," aald Mrs. Oliver Troyer, "we Just tightened down on the absolute necessities as much as possible and virtually eliminated any luxuries." "It was during this period," she added, "that we really adopted the policy of paying as we went." ' At the time of the depression the Troyers were living on their 160 acre farm southeast of Dan- vers. "I think it was probably bet ter that we lived on a smaller farm at that time," said Mrs. Troy- Jer. "We didn't have to have as jnuch power machinery as we use .'.now and that . cut down our ex- penses." Mr. Troyer, an accomplished ""' horseman, turned from farm- Ing to horse breaking during "T. that period and it was in this way that they were able to ,? combat the hard times. "At one time," said Mr. Troyer, had eight head of unbroken horses on the farm and I spent the ! (greatest portion of my time break- lng them for sale. Whenever I tot a chance to sell a colt,-1 would 'turn it for an unbroken horse and then sell the horse for farm use.' Mrs. Troyer, looking at a I; lighter side of the struggle, ' remarked, "We stopped driv- ,' i ing the car and used a buggy - instead. ' I think a number of farm people: did the same in I their plan to economize. It was . easier then than it would be if.

"Recreation was not a problem then and it isn't now. We like to take trips and listen to music as well as read a little. Most of our entertainment centers around com munity and clubs in addition to church organizations. Active in Community. Mrs. Trover is a member of the RLmimnns Communitv club, an or ganization for school mothers. Mr. Troyer, a school director, also takes an active part in commun ity work. "We attend free movies and like to listen to band concerts. That about sums up our activities outside of .farm work," said Mrs. Troyer. They believe the parents should see to it that all children get a good education. If possible, they believe it is desirable for the child to' take responsibility for part of the education. Also, when the children have an income, they should utilize the money to the best advantage for personal items. It is for this reason that Mrs. Troyer endorses 4-H club work. The Troyer children have all been enrolled in 4-H projects. Mr. and Mrs. Troyer utilize their time and money to their best advantage and the limit of their income. A great deal must be turned back for machinery when a large farm is to be worked. Sews and Cans. To offset this latter sum, Mrs. Troyer makes a number of the children's clothes but does not hes itate to buy them when needed. She also cans a large amount of food and last season estimated she put up oyer 500 quarts for the winter consumption. 'All the -children help with the farm work," said Mr. and Mrs. Troyer. "Even with Oliver Jr. gone, the children make the load easier both in the field' and the home. Ruth, John and Orville work at home and Wayne Is working at a Eureka farnri. Donald and Fern, the youngest, help a great deal although their main interest during the summer is in play. NEXT The part the TroyeT children take in the farm work.
