Already 650 farm residences are ready for thc electricity which is being turned on in the last hundred of these homes and surveys have been started for another project which will. serve hundreds of more families.

A survey snowed that at least 92 per cent of the. 10,015 farm homes underwent changes in practices which definitely resulted from the home (lemoiistralion and agricultural programs. Many of these modernized tlieir houses in many ways; store houses were filled with all kinds of foods; more hogs, cattle nnd chickens were placed on farms and farm families were definitely "better off" in 1939 than they were several years ago. That they realize the government wants lo help them is shown by their interest during the past year in organizations which assist them to become better farmers and home makers.
