AGRICULTURAL-REGIONAL LAND AND PEOPLE CONFERENCE. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
FREEMAN, ORVILLE L.
MIGRATION FROM FARMS CAN BE STOPPED. FARM LIFE CAN BE IMPROVED THROUGH DECENT HOUSING, THROUGH HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND PUBLIC SERVICES, AND THROUGH A COMBINATION OF PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT WITH PART-TIME AGRICULTURE. RURAL EMPLOYMENT CAN BE PROVIDED BY ENTERPRISES DEVELOPING RECREATIONAL RESOURCES AND SOIL AND WATER RESOURCES. ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND FROM STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. THROUGH THE MOBILIZATION OF SUCH SERVICES AS THE FOREST SERVICE, THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT, THE BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS, AND THE SOIL CONSERVATION SERVICE, UNIFIED PROGRAMS FOR THE WISE USE OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND HAVE BEEN WORKED OUT. THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE CAN ENTER INTO AGREEMENTS WITH FARMERS AND RANCHERS TO CARRY OUT LONG-RANGE CONSERVATION PLANS, TO ASSIST STATE AND LOCAL AGENCIES TO CARRY OUT LAND USE PLANS THROUGH FEDERAL LOANS, TO SHARE IN THE COST OF LAND PURCHASES, TO ASSIST IN THE FINANCING OF RESERVOIRS FOR MUNICIPAL OR INDUSTRIAL USES, AND TO ASSIST INDIVIDUAL FARMERS TO DEVELOP OUTDOOR RECREATION FACILITIES.
