•MONDAY, FEBRUARY. 10, C. OF C. HELP (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS British Flyers Steeled For Action Farm Division Of C. Of C. Mas Provided Money For Interests : * Por throe consecutive yens boys and girls of the 7000 farm lainllies in North Mississippi County have Lceu given an opportunity lo make money Uy financing pig and chicken projects through cooperation of the ngricultunil committee of the Ulythcvillo Clinnibcr of Commerce. So successful ha.s been the program that the Chamber o! Commerce plnn. 1 ; to again k-.'id money to these future farmers and laim- erettes in 1940. First started in l'J2C, Ihc group inaugurated the plan of lending money lo 4-11 cliib members to purchase purebred baby chicks and registered gilts and pigs, Allowing Ihem lo pay in Ihe fall from their The plan wns abiindyncd for a tew years but Us revival has i led lo a program which has b^- coine far-ienchlng. Without losing any money oil bad to.ins. the udtilt group ha.s made it possible for 70.000 pure bred chickens lo be distributed among 1400 members of 4-H dub-. Only the dual purpose breeds of chickens such as White Ro:ks. WyandoUes. Barred nocks, Rhode Island Reds arc financed. During the pnst year fl2 registered pigs, valued al more than $800, were financed. The chief breeds of pigs n.sej were Poland Chinas, Dui'OC Jerseys, Hampshire* and O. I. C. Club members make applications to the county agents and sign promissory notes, with endorsements of llieir parents, to obtain these loans which arc payable In the late fall. Some 50 to 100 chicks are taken by eacii member and the chicks me distributed from a local •hatchery. Proper methods or caring for chicks arc furnished t> tlie extension service. In casc.s where funds allocated by the Chamber of commerce are exhausted, tlie local hatchery also finances some club members. Thai these loans to club members for purchase of registered hogs lifts greatly improved the quality of swine in Mississippi County is evidenced by Ihe increase, in the number of registered males and females. In 1933, not more than 12 fann- ers kept registered hogs on their farms'in all of North Mississippi County' while '' records show that approximately aii-i 4-H club members note have registered nnimals. All prize-winning swine in the 4-H department, at Ilia Mississippi County Pair last fall were from projects sponsored by the loan deportment. Much interest has been shown in registered hogs by 4-H club mem- i hers who have made fair fi.inncial j success and at the same time started a project whi?Ii will pay even more dividends in future years. ."James Henson, n member of the Forty and Eight Club, has not only made money from his registered swine demonstration but he niso served a good purpose in providing registered pigs for other club members in his community. In the spring of 1931 when James ptU'Chased a bred gilt tin-align this fiiinnce plan, some believed that the price of £18.50 .was so high that he could nut make a financial success from sueh a project. But from this first litter of seven, young Henson sold three gilt pigs Hid one male for about $10 each to other 4-8 club members raid so >afd off his note. He kept one of .lie gilts for a brood sow, kept one niile nnd sold one. Every pig'in this first litter of seven was raised a.-, well as all seven in the second litter. : An Inventory of this pure bred FIBE FliltRS FORES1S Kilin 'Our Town' Applies Unusual T(!dnii(|U(>, .Muym Talk To Audience "Smoke Jumpers" Wear S u i I s For '1 licit- Work WASHINGTON, (U!'>-Th<< J . «.i'i>i rxu'imneiii wants the iwo .warned u-dl 1,1 advance Unit.
