Because Ihe land is not for sale nnd because Ihe Hechlin unit has a reputation for keeping Its tenants ycnr after year. Ihe renters enjoy a sense of security which mnkcs them better workers. If it is learned that Ihe farmer Is capable of working- more limcl than he did when he first went there, he Is mcved to n larger unit so Hint, is n constant. Inspiration for him! work. If the tenant Isn't, able lo finance such a project as a permanent pasture program nt (he time of the year it should lie done, the farm cwnor liimnces 11 nnd the only requirement, Is lliat he keep his hogs vaccinated. When necessary he may have Iwo ycnrs to repay this loan. The lontvnts harvest nnd sell Ihe crop the same as If they owned the land. That tlie tenants do better than average small renlers Is shown by records. A. C. Duclos, who won first IKIIOK in the tenant division last year, was a Rechtin tenant. Another tenant was accepted' for Farm Security Association land purchase this year. i Through the cooperation of the county extension agents mid Ihe Inspiration fixm Ihe Plant to Prosper, contest, each of the Icnanls has his pantry stocked full of home canned goods, from 300 to 100 cans, and also plenty of dried peas, sweet polakes, peanuts and pop com for tlie winter nnd also plenty of fattening hogs In Ihe pen nnd stock hogs in the pasture. The farm oivncr keeps ull build- igs in good repair and furnishes them vhnlever cash is necessary to make the crop, in case of sickness cr death, cash is always advanced to cover expenses. Should a tenant fall to pay out, through no fault of his own. he is never closed out. The account is carried ever to the next year. Every" tenant must keep a cow, some hogs, chickens and raise it garden. Yards nre beautified by the tenants and fruit Irccs are planted for the renters can slay there lonv enough'for them to bear fruit and there are also many grape vines and berry bushes.
