County Agent Has Won
Permanent Place In
Department of Agriculture Issues
Circular Describing His Work
and His Worth.
Washington, Nov. 8. After ten
years of experimentation and devel
opment under the direction of the
Department of Agriculture, county
agent work has proved itself an in
dispensable factor in agricultural
communities in the Northern and
Western states. It has awakened the
farmers' economic instincts and is
helping him to stand on an equality
with othter business interests. It has
brought about a reorganization of
social conditions in rural districts
which makes country living more sat
isfactory and has brought to the
country boy and girl a new respect
for the farm and a new and better
vision of country life.
The specific activities of county
agents in Northern and Western
states, with respect to soil fertility,
crops, seed improvement, pest and
insect control, fruit, livestock, farm
management, boys and girls clubs,
farm home problems, etc., are fully
and interestingly described in De
partment Circular 179, which may be
had on application to the Department
History of County Agent.
The circular also gives a brief his
tory of the county agent work from
its inception in 1911, in Boone coun
ty. New York. By the end of June,
1913, about one hundred of the
agents were at work in 19 states. The
passage of the Agricultural Extension
act in May, 1914, and later the food
production emergency of the World
war, led to the rapid expansion of the
county agent force, which now num
bers 1,116 agents in the 1,600 agri
cultural counties of 33 Northern and

Western states. Iowa and Minneso
ta are the only states which have a
complete quota of agents.
It is interesting to note that the
early efforts of county agents were
poorly received by county commun
ities and in very many cases were
openly resented by farmers. The
changed attitude of agricultural com-
imunities in regard to the county
! agents is one of the most notable
triumphs of the work and is the best
possible proof of its value and neces
sity. County agents' attitude toward
such economic problems as coopera
tive purchasing of farm supplies and
marketing of farm products has re
sulted in the formulation of a na
tional policy. The county agent to
day helps determine what crops
should be grown, he advises how to
grow them efficiently and how to
market them profitably. The same is
true in connection with his work in
the livestock industry.
Helps the Farmer Help Himself.
The county agent's first duty is to
help the farmer help himself. One
of the outstanding development's in
connection with the county agent
work has been the increased empha
sis placed on the appointment of
community project leaders and thru
them the development of programs
of extension work in agriculture and
home economics. Whether the need
of a particular community be drain
age of wet lands, stump blasting,
corn, wheat or other crop work, im
provement of seed potatoes, eradica
tion of prairie dogs or grasshoppers,
pruning and spraying of fruit trees,
a "better sires" or tuberculin test
campaign, farm accounts, boys and
girls club work, or other problems,
the method of approaching Jhe work
is about the same.
The aid of extension experts from
state colleges of agriculture and the
United States Department of Agri
culture is frequently sought, sinck
farmers are insisting on a high stan
dard of qualifications in those from
whom they expect to learn newer and
better methods of farming.
The circular gives many tables and
figures in connection with its story of
the county agent work in the North
ern and Western states.

Growers Draft Rule Praised
By Secretary Wallace As A
Great Aid to Agriculture
Washington, Nov. 8. Concern
ing the ruling recently made by the
Federal Reserve board to the effect
that growers' drafts accepted by co
operative marketing associations
should be classed as agricultural pa
per eligible for rediscount at federal
reserve banks, Secretary of Agricul
ture Henry C. Wallace said recently:
"It is a ruling of great importance,
and should result in making addition
al credit available for farm use.
"It appears that drafts drawn by
members upon associations designed
to market their produce are to be re
garded not as evidences of purchase
rr'S A POOR EYE THAT
CANT SEE DIAMONDS IN
of purchases by the association but as
advancements made by the associa
tion in the capacity of consignee,
when the association operates on a
pooling basis, with full authority to
defer selling the produce or to sell
it in a modified condition.
"Had the board ruled that the
transaction indicated was a sale and
not a consignment, the drafts would
be restricted to eligibility for redis
count within the 90-day limit. Under
the interpretation of the board, how
ever, the growers' drafts, if otherwise
conforming to the rules and regula
tions of the Federal Reserve system,
are eligible for rediscount within the
six-month limit. It would seem, un
der this ruling, that growers may:
"Employ cooperative market asso
ciations, to advantage in financing
their agricultural requirements, find
it especially to their advantage to
keep their delivery of produce to
their associations on a strictly con
signment basis, and enjoy special ad
vantages in marketing their produce
"Cooperative associations should
secure a copy of this ruling from the
Federal Reserve board, and inform
themselves thoroughly on it, so that
they may take advantage of it.
"IJiear you had a quarrel with
your sweetheart the other day."
"Yes, she sneered at my apart
ment, so I knocked her fiat."

Farmers and Stockmen Will
Be Warned of Heavy Snows
and Blizzards This Winter
Washington, Nov. 8. Now that
the winter season is approaching, the
Weather bureau of the United States
Department of Agriculture is perfect
ing its service to assist stockmen and
agricultural interests in general
against the dangers of cold waves,
heavy snows, high winds and bliz
zards. The increased use of the wireless
by the Department of Agriculture
will expedite the handling of weather
forecasts in the western states. Plans
have been worked out whereby with
in an hour or two at the outside after
the Weather bureau issues the warn
ing, every community will be in pos
session of it. In fact, every individ
ual farmer or rancher, who has a tel
ephone, will be in possession of it,
for under the system perfected, the
wireless will be used to communicate
forecasts of blizzards, heavy snows,
etc., to central points, where arrange
ments will be made to telephone the
information to all parties having
In event of a severe winter, such
as has been predicted, the perfected
service of the Weather bureau will
undoubtedly save stockmen and far
mers in the west hundreds of thous
ands of dollars by preventing losses
among their cattle and other live
stock. Schnops, great
