SAYS COUNTY AGENT
WAS BIG FACTOR
To operate a farm of 319 acres with
only two young boys to do the work
is not an easy job. To make it pro
duce a net profit of $1,800 in one year
under those conditions is considered a
.real achievement. A farmer near
Rockford, Coosa County, Ala., in a
letter to the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, gives this as the
record made by his own sons. But he
adds that the county agent was the
big factor in the achievement. It was
the agent who helped to select the
seed and gave advice on drainage, ter
