Garver and his mother used to rent land and grow cotton while his father ran the shop. “Why couldn’t we have our own farm?” he used to ask his mother as they worked side by side under hot summer suns to make a crop of which they got only a part. Garver was only a small boy— young in years and small for his age-but Garver could think as well as work. Working the other fellow’s land had something to do with his mother having to work so hard in the field, he thought. Later on when he had the chance to go to high school, Garver re alized that rent money wasn’t all his mother and father had been working for, but this did not les sen his ambition to own his own farm. Farming appealed to him and the last two years in high school he studied vocational agriculture i nthe Whiteville school, where he was one of Professor Frank Goss’ star students. His family had moved from another county to Columbus so that he might be near enough to attend the school. But the "de pression” had begun. Many who had been well-to-do farmers were no longer riding in automobiles. At that time certain well-known horse-drawn carts were not un common vehicles. Money was scarce and jobs were scarce. Gar ver got a job milking cows, be fore and after school. Night and morning he milked nint» rnwc anH crr>f Cl AH n He gave a dollar to his mother to help with the groceries and kept the rest for himself for pocket change. That was about six years ago. The more Garver learned about farming the more he dreamed of a farm of his own. His marriage about the same time to a comely Columbus county girl did not les sen that ambition. But for the present owning a farm had to be only a dream. At first he had to be content as a sharecropper. Then, three years ago, he went to see C. D. Pickerrell, county supervisor of the Farm Security Administration at Whiteville, and borrowed money to buy workstock and farming equipment. In a cou ple of years he paid for a $300 mule, a wagon, disc harrow and other equipment. That was a step forward. With his FSA loans all paid, he then applied to the same agency for a loan to buy a farm, under the ‘tenant purchase” program, is application looked good to the local TP committee and last sum mer Garver bought a 151- acre farm on the Whiteville-Elizabeth town road. Last fall the Garver Hood fam ily Mr. and Mrs. Hood and four small children moved in to a brand new, cozy white cottage. The FSA loan included money to build the house, pasture fence, a modern stock barn, tobacco barn, and other outbuildings. Under terms of the loan, Garver will have 40 years to pay for the place, at three per cent interest. For his protection in bad crops years, his payments will vary each year with his earnings, but pay ments are expected to average $26. ‘‘I’d be willing to pay that much rent for this farm,” Garver said recently. When asked what he is doing on his own farm different from what he used to do, Garver said, “I am praticing a soil building program, rotating crops and plant ing legumes and cover crops. 1 am also raising more food and feed crops, and raising my own workstock. That’s part of my farm plan.” A year ago, Garver traded his $300 mule for two good mares. The mares had been bred to a registered Clydesdale Stallion. He now has two fine colts. Garver is also one of several farmers in the county participating in a jack service made possible through a Farm Security group loan. Next year Garver hopes tc raise a pair of mule colts. “What’s the use to pay $300 foi a mule when you can raise him,” he said. Garver has a new pasture start ed, two nice milk cows, and some good hogs. He is a successful to bacco man, but doesn’t trust all his eggs in one basket. His crops also include corn, soy beans, a small amount of cotton, small grain, strawberries, and pea nuts. The farm already is quiet dif ferent from what it was a year ago, but in the words of hard working Garver Hood, ‘Our work for a better farm has just be gun.” The Sudan is the chief source of the world’s supply of gum arabic.
