Loans in Two Parts Several of Die new torrowcrs will , receive a loan large enough to ac- I (juirc both capital aud subsistence essentials. An F3A loan is divided into two major parts.

"Our experience has taught us that the families lhat grow their own feed, diversify their cash income, produce (heir own food and olher liome needs are invariably the families who make llic greatest slrides lo- ward complete rehabilitation nnd a better standard of living. For that reason we are placing stronger emphasis than ever this year on Jive-at-liome practices and proper use and cropping of llic land." Mine Camp Wants I'oslofficc MADRAS. Ore.
