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.
January 5 Long Term
Rotation Loans, County Bankers.
January 12 Home Account
Summarys Thelma Beall.
January 19 A Short Farm
and Home Plan Robert
January 36 Shortages on
the Farm and in the Home.
February 2 Principles and
Applications of Principles of
Nutrition to Humans and Ani
mals Dr. O. Q. Bentlev,
Dan McGrew.
We hope that you will make
a special effort to attend these
meeting!. Like all business men
the farmer buys and sells, and
a few cents gained here and
there on what he buys and
sells makes the difference be
tween success or failure. Let's
start playing with the sheet
instead of playing by ear.
