BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)', COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL" 30, 1942 IV* ISIEIM Learning to Core for Soldiers' Spiritual Needs riNDEANATJOLlS lUP) — The 3,771-acre Deshee farm near Vincennes, Ind., recently attacked in Ctongress' as a "Russian Colony," completed its third farm year with a >"916,500 net profit, according to William CJghtfoot, - Jr., assistant tutorial'director of the Farm Security Administration. ' The project, a part of the government-owned Wabasli farms which include 7,718 acres in seven southern Indiana counties, is operated on a cooperative basis by 38 families. The- $16,500 net, Lightfoot point- ed'''out, represents the profit on tlie 1941 operation after annual rent of $6,600 and previous losses of $12,000 were deducted. However, the bookkeeping, he said, docs not take advantage of recent price increases for farm products as a 10- year price average was used in taking inventory. Advance on "Dividends" In addition to the Deshee farm, the FSA operates two similar cooperative projects, the Bois D'Arc and Hillview farms in southern Missouri JUghtfoot explained that in setting up the Deshee farm in 1939, eight large farms supporting eight families were purchased for about $70 per acre. Forty-one houses were built and leased with the Komsii Catholic chaplains-to-be kneel in church at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indianapolis, where Army is training ministers of all'faiths.

Members of the cooperative own none of the crops or livestock individually. In return for 10 hours daily work, they get their house, a garden plot, field and dairy products and 20 cents per hour in a cash wage, which 'Lightfoot termed an advance.on; potential dividends. At the end of the year, if a profit is made, members receive dividends after a reserve is taken out of the fund. Members of the cooperative elect their own manager but various phases of the operation are directed by committees. Locals Approve Project Lightfoot pointed out that this has biiEn one cause of high membership turnover. In several cases committee chairmen became so well-trained in one . branch of fanning' that they were offered lucrative jobs as farm managers and specialists. At the present time, he said, three vacancies exist as. a result of members taking specialists' jobs or poitions in defense industry. The 41 houses air will be occupied this spring, he added. Commenting, on charges of Communism in connection with Desheo farm, Ligritfoot said: ''Some people who have never seen one of our projects or talked to the people on them are prone to criticize, but my observation is that local people approve the pro- ect after taking the trouble to isit the farm and see how the Pancake Fanciei makes Russian blini (pancakes) jressed caviar, or sour cream, or vith chopped hard-cooked eggs n butter, ivieiteu^ butter is ai- vays served with them also.
