More Ways For Landless Farmers 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 nole County. In the current year, opportunity is offered for approximately 2,350 more landless farmers of the region to be-1 ■ come landowners. Os these 7 will be j 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 |, tures. 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 ed. 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 application. Members of the tenant purchase committee of Seminole County are: Mr. J. V. King, Mr. H. G. Woods, Mr. Gordon Spooner. 9 WE ARE • Headquarters • FOR • School Supplies • NOTE BOOKS, PENCILS, INKS, PINS, B FOUNTAIN PINS, PAPER TABLETS, & RULERS AND COMPASES • Get Completely Furnsihed • Remember.
