Young Couples Will Meet in Burton The first meeting of the Young Couples School will be held on January 5 at 8:00 p.m in the Old School Bldg. at Burton. This is the first of a series of meetings "designed to help married couples make a better start in farming. Getting started in farming today is a little more difficult than it was for our fathers and grandfathers, but the road is much the same: Inherit one, marry the girl who has one or just work and save and climb the agricultural ladder to ownership. The biggrst step on the ladder now appears to be from the wage earner rung to a satisfactory tenant status. Farm wages have increased, but so have farm equipment, fertil izer, seed and livestock prices. Credit is becoming of iri creasing importance in acquir ing a farm business and is the subject of the first meeting. The series of meetings and meeting dates are found below, the public is invited.
