More Ways For
To Acquire Land
Another chance for landless farm
ers in Seminole County to become
landowners, and to start on their way
to independence, has been opened.
Tenants, the recroppers and farm
laborers in Seminole County have new
opportunity to file formal application
for loans under the Bankhead-Jones
Act with the Farm Security Admini
stration supervisor In this county. He
is Hugh E. Gleaton, and his office is]
located at Donalsonville, Georgia.
Through the operation of the Bank--
head-Jones Act, more than 5,400
farmers have become landowners in i
the Southeastern States comprising.
Region V of the Farm Security Ad-,
ministration. Os these, 19 are in Semi-1
In the current year, opportunity is
offered for approximately 2,350 more
landless farmers of the region to be-1

in this county.
Mr. Gleaton explained that getting
a loan under the Bankhead-Jones Act
means more than just gettting money
getting money to purchase land. The
loans cover the necessary buildings,
; barns, poultry, smoke house, etc., and
ample fencing and money for perma
nent land improvements, such as pas
i Thus, said Mr. Gleaton, the tenant
family has more than credit to pur-1
| chase a home. He has credit to attain
1 a better living for himself and his
I family. The annual payments which
( 1 the borrower is required to make are
I usually about like rents now paid by
tenants operating the farms purchas
The county tenant purchase com
mittee, which considers all loans, can
not pass upon any applications ex
cept those of families that have for
mal applications on file. Mr. Gleaton
pointed out that applications filed be
fore June 30, 1940, are not current
and therefore cannot be considered
unless the would-be purchaser goes to I
the county FSA office and renews his
