FARM NEWS - FEATURES FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1940' Show Capability For Management Of Farm . Tv;o years has been sufficient tune, under a supervised FSA loan, for Mr..and Mrs..John Mooring of! Tyronza, RPD No 1. to prove them- I selves worthy of home ownership. . In 1938 Mr. and Mrs. Mooring and their, eight children made an j application for a Rehabilitation loan in order that they might obtain livestock and equipment to ! operate a rented farm. Since that | lime they have followed very closely a farm and home management plan worked out with the aid of I the FSA Supervisors. By taking advantage of the opportunity provided in these plans. they were among the 15 families in Mississippi County who were selected for a farm ..under the Bankhead-Jones Tenant Purchase Act. This selection \vas made from 207 applica- lions received in the County this • year. . ' • \ \ The Record Book kept by this j family shows that in the past year I they have paid $250.51 on their I FSA Account, which leaves a very small balance. $373,33 has been deposited for their next year's farm and home operations. Financially, they are in a position now to take on the responsibility of indebtedness for a farm through the Tenant Purchase Program, for these loans are made for the purchase of family sized farms and are up on a 40 year repayment plan, with the landlord's share of the crop making the payment (3% interest). The goal reached by this family is one that should be an incentive to any tenant family, for not only will they now enjoy the privileges of farming their own land and becoming an actual part of their community but w\M at the same time have the advantages of occupying a well planned and properly constructed comfortable farm Home.

The epidemic, which started on the west coast, is expected to increase the pace of its progress cast- ward -with the holiday traffic, and while there is probably not much homemakers can do to keep the epidemic away from their doors, Miss Coleman says, they may be able to decrease the severity of an attack. or aid in a more rapid recovery for the members of their family through careful planning of holi- • day menus and activities. . A diet high in protective foods, and plenty of rest, will help to! keep up bodily resistance, a desir- ' able .form of health insurance at ; any time/according to Miss Mary! E. Loughead of the University of j Arkansas College of Agriculture. The best protective foods. Miss Loughead says, are milk and dairy products, vegetables, fruits, eggs .and cereals. -. The daily diet, to provide health insurance for the family, should include one quart of milk for each child, one pint for each adult, 1VJ to 2 ounces of butter, 3 servings of vegetables, one of which may be potatoes and another green or leafy vegetable, 2 servings of fresh fruits or tomatoes, and 2 servings of a protein food (eggs, fish. cheese, or lean meat). If fats, sweets and other desirable foods in moderate amounts are added to first place in the county contest. Mr. and Mrs. Katzenberger and their 15-months-cld son.

Whistling Arrow Called Father of Scream Bomb CHICAGO (UP) — The dreaded "scream" .bomb had as its antecedent the Chinese whistling arrow used by Manclui bodyguards to frighten people off the streets as the emperor rode by, according io C. Martin Wilbur, of the Field Museum. The whistling arrows, used in 200 B. C. according to Chinese historians, had the same purpose as the modem scream bomb—to destroy civilian morale. Wilbur said. The Chinese implement, however, was not dangerous as the head was large and blunt and air speed was reduced by air resistance. Read Courier News want ads.
