With Federal Loans and I'arm Benefit Payments LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-In three years' lime, nine government agencies which have served as shock troops to turn the tide of depression have completely altered the ."ecial and economic picture In Mississippi county and lu.'c brought recovery out of ruin according (o James J. Harrison State Director for , Ihe National Emergency Council, coordinator of the activities of all federal agencies. Summarizing the work of the-e agencies in the last three years during which a total of $11,292 CDI) has been loaned, allotted or spent in Mississippi county alone, Director Harrison recalled concIUi ms in the bleak days of 1933 when President Roosevelt took office end contrasted them with the brightening situation today. Half in Secured Loans This change, Mr. Harrison pointed out, was brought about pri- decisi'.'c of the expeudi- marlly by the prompt, : and constructive action federal agencies. Their lures in dollars do not their far-reaching accomplishments, but they do give some idea of the scope of their activities The manner of spending as well as the amount spent is a matter of interest and Importance to the public. A summary of agency spending in this county follows- .First, in secured loans on farms homes, non-federal public improvements and other sound collateral. A conservative estimate, which includes the major financing operations ol Reconstruction Finance Corporation, Farm Credit' , AdmIriIstratlph,-.;--H6me' Owners' Loan Corporation, Public -Works Administration, Resettlement Ad: ministration, and Federal Housing Administration, and smaller onerations by many other u»en- cies, shows provident loans !n Mississippi county of approximately $6,104.221, or fifty-four per cent of tbe total estimated federal advances made in the county in the nttack on Ihe depression. Relief Hem Smallest Second, in what business calls Plant Improvement and Maintenance. This includes such additions to our capital assets .is highways, waterways, flood r-on- trol works, 8 ains from soil and forest conservation, preservation of wild life, development of recreational areas, land utilization, etc . These constitute a great national \ „,. c investment and arc the c-iinmon property of all Ihc people. Including the allocations approved under the Works Program but not expended and taking credit , v . relief expenditures for useful nub- lic works for the county and its sub-divisions, a reasonably accurate estimate of federal investment . for Plant Improvement and Maintenance in Mississippi county is $1.380.973, or twelve per cent of the total estimated federal advances made In Ihe county. Third, in crop benefits tolalling approximately $3.515.863 and rep' resenting Ihlrty-one per cent of (lie tolal estimated advances These payments are a domestic tariff which farm'ers themselves] participate In paying. Thev represent the fii^t and^irobably most Important step taken by this administration to restore balance bc- Iween agricullure and Industry Foinih, In direct relief to the, destitute and unemployable. For direct relief of human suffering,! without any compensating useful work, the cstimalc. including administration, is $291,033, which is only three per cent, of all federal advances In llils county.
