Communities which have had projects ootiined, and funds appropriated fct them, will be inconvenienced, Washington Daybook By Preston Grover By DR. W. W. ALEXANDER Fanrt, Secuncy Administrator (Pinch hitting for Preston Grover dating his vacation) WASHINGTON--A few weeks ago the Federal Treasury received a check for $164.72 from Wiley J. Langley of Jasper, Alabama, who had been a tenant farmer nearlj all of his life. You might think that S164 would cause no great excitement in official Washington--but the delivery of this particularly check was pretty important to Uncle Sam. It marked a significant milestone in the government's effort to help sharecroppers and tenant farmers buy land of their own. Langley was the first tenant in the United States to become a landowner under the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act. A little more-than a year agorhe borrowed S3.800 to bu\ the 180-acre cotton farm which he had been operating as a tenant for three years. At that time the 59- year-old-farmer was heavily in debt: his chattel property was mortgaged: "the" house was badly in n?pd of repair. Mrs. Langley. who had raised 12 children was trying her best to make a comfortable home with kerosene lamps, an old wood stove, and no modern conveniences. Today the Langlcys have paid off people-chosen from one of the i before this program could re-estab- neediest groups in the nation-are lish the nations farmers on meu reoavinff their loans before the date I own land, due ^InsSnmenrs totaling aooulf Unfortunately, the problem is , i S103000 have fallen due: but already nearly $139.000 has been paid into the Federal Treasury. In other words, collections have , amounted to 135 per cent of maturities, because many of the borrowers are working vigorously to pay off their debt in advance. There is every prospect that all of these tenant purchase loans will be repaid in full, with three percent interest: and that the government's attack on the evils of farm tenancy will not cost the taxpayer a single pennv. Actually, this repayment record is not at all surprising, because the great majority of the borrowers are the in- agers I quoted the rule formulated jy a life insurance statistician, that two years should be deducted ;rom an individual's life expectancy for every inch one's girth exceeds one's chest measurement af- i ter the age of thirty-five. From my own experience I infer that the dowagers who re- some one has got to do it, and I don't mind such criticism at all. An occasional quiet word from some reader who takes it as I mean it is ample compensation for my contribution. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS The Vitamin B-Complex Kindly mention in your column what the vitamin tt jWjnplex consists of, which" some iT'$our readers recommend lor restoring color to gray hair. . . . . (H. F. L-) Answer -- .Vit*mia B-complex, of which wheat germ is the richest food source, includes all of the factors identified or assumed present in the vitamin group originally called vitamin B. Some of the factors are vitamin B-l or thiamin, vitamin B-2 or G or ribpflavin, nicotinic acid, anti-dermatitis factor, anti-gray hair factor, etc. The last is so named because it seems to retard or prevent graying of the hair of rats with age. Whether it has such effect in human beings, I do not know. Perhaps people beginning to be gray just feel better, when they supplement their regular diet with vitamin B complex, and see the dark hairs, not the gray when they scrutinize their hair. Many have declared that an iodin ration stops graying of their hair. A few even assert that their gray hair has been restored to its orig- REST AND ENJOY YOURSELF with complete freedom from responsibility i N«» M /«· to travel in ^pleS Of N6W LOW ROUnd- speed, safety and comfort--by Trip Rail Fares from Canandaigua New York Central!

Nearly half of all the farmers in this country already are renters or sharecoppers. and number of tenant families is creasing at the rate of about 40.00C Tf year. With its present limited resources, the Farm Security Administration cannot even halt the increase in farm tenancy, much less help the 2.800.000 families who al- 1 ready have fallen into a tenant status. ,,.. . , Department of Agriculture officials are not discouraged, however. A start has been made, and they feei that it has proved to be a thoroughly sound one. which involves virtually no cost to the government. When , that one may deduct, what was it, 25 minutes ? from one's life expectancy for every cocktail or highball,'according to the experience of insurance companies in reference to the habits of policyholders. My allusion to this brought the usual shower of exaggerated instances to the contrary. Then still another observation, this one my own. aroused considerable animosity. I said that a person should deduct a year or two from his or her life expectation for every tooth lost by accident, disease or intention and "not promptly replaced by a functionally efficient denture--and I believe this rule is as sound as any "rule" bearing on health or life.
