Aim at New Record.
The Farm Security Administra
tion announced last week that its
borrowers, white and colored alike,
plan to surpass their 1942 produc
tion record of war essential crops.
The 463,941 family-sized farmers,
including 62,969 Negro farmers,
who have received loans from FSA
believe they can produce enough
addtional milk to meet the require
ments of more than 3,000,000 fight
ing men for a year. Of sourse, only
a small part of their production is
reaching the front. The remaind
: er is consumed right on the farm
to keep the family in working trim
*o that it can make a full contribu
tion to the war effort. Last year
KSA borrowers produced 989.990,
000 gallons of milk, this year they
plan to increase their production to
They also expect to boost their
pork production to 1,178.0000,000
pounds, the;r chicken output to
224.350.000 pounds and their peanut
crop to 374,000,000 pounds. This
will help a lot toward assuring
full mess plates for our soldiers
and full lunch buckets for our war
Women’s Land Army
A Women’s Land Army of 60,000
will be recruited and placed as part
of the 3,500,000 workers to be en
rolled in the U. S.‘ Crop Corps to
help meet the farm labor shortage,
the War Food Administration an
nounced last week. Dressed in es
pecially esigned uniforms the
Land Army will make up part of
the 360,000 women who will be en
rolled for farm work. About 10,
000 members of the Land Army are
expected to enroll for year-round
work, the remaining 50,000 for sea
sonal work of one moth or more.
The year-round workers will re
ceive from 3 to 6 weeks’ training in
one of the agricultural short-courses
offered by state agricultural col
leges, similar institutions, or equiv
alent training on the farm. Women
of the Land Army may also work
in farm homes, relieving skilled 1
farm women for work in the fields.
The other 300,000 women workers
who will be recruited along with
:ransported farm workers, business
Tien, and high school youths of
h*» Virtnrv ...:n
ae placed for short-time emergen
cy jobs on farms.
Women \^ho ;can spare week
ends, a few days, or a few weeks
vill enroll in this service to help
vith the job of producing and har
vesting vital war crops.
Recruiting will be done in rural
areas by County Extension agents, j
and in cities by the U. S. Employ
ment Service with the aid of Coun- <
:y Councils of Civilian Defense.
Supervision of the Women’s Land
^rmy will be under Cooperative
Extension Service of the Depart
ment of Agriculture. Enrollees in
:he Land Army must have reached
heir 18th birthday and must fur

Distribution Payment on Peanuts
Farmers who produced “excess” ~
or oil peanuts last year and deliv- -
-ied them to designated growers
agencies under the 1942 peanut pro
gram, will receive a distribution
oayment of $10 a ton for those ex
tra peanuts, less outstanding in
debtedness to the Government for
1942 seed. An additional distribu
tion payment is expected to be
available upon completion of the
L942 Peanut Marketing Program.
Payments to farmers will be
made with the approval of Com
modity Credit Corpration by pea
lut growers cooperative associa
ions designated as agencies of the
Secretary of Agriculture for pur
chase and sale of peanuts. These
agencies are Georgia-Florida- Ala
bama Peanut Association, Cammil
la, Ga.; the Southwestern Peanut
Growers Association, Gorman, Tex
as; and the Growers Peanut Coop
*rtaive, Inc., Franklin, Va. 1
The Department has also an
nounced that there will be no
marketing cards and no "quota” or
‘excess” peanuts this year. Sup
port prices to farmers will average
not less than $140 per ton for Span
ish type peanuts, $140 ped ton for
Virginia types, and $130 per ton for
Steps have been taken by the De
partment to make peanuts availa- '
ble to farmers needing additional '
supplies for seeding the 1943 crop. (
The designated agencies are selling 1
peanuts for seeding at cash prices
ranging from $125 to $155 per ton.
“Thomas Jefferson was the fath
er of scientific agriculture in the
United States ... If he lived today,
Jefferson would probably be the
country’s most enthusiastic Victory
Gardener,” declared Secretary of
Agriculture Claude R. Wickard on
the Farm and Home Hour April 9
in commemoration of the 200th an
niversary of Jefferson’s birth.
In canning products from your
Victory Garden the Department
recommends the use of a pre* ure
cooker for the canning of non- id
foods such as beans, peas, c< rn,
spinach, other greens, and asp ra
gus. (And while we are on L.’
subject, meats, too.)Acid foods such
as fruits, tomatoes, rhubarb, and
pickled beets may be canned safe

Adjustments were made in the milk
marketing economies order last
week by the Department which
removed restrictions on the sale of
milk in less-than-quart-sized con
tainers for consumption in facto
ries, schools, offices, on play
grounds, and in similar places.
However, the sale of milk in less
than-quart-sized containers for
consumption in homes is still re
stricted, except in rural areas, vil
lages and towns of less than 5,000
population. In such areas, the milk

Fewer peoples are now living on
farms. According to the Bureau of
Agricultural Economics, 27,821,000
persons were living on farms in the
United States on January 1. This
is the smallest number of farm
residents in the entire 33-year pe
riod for which estimates of farm
population are available.
