This thesis is concerned with the general problem of how young men become established in farming.
Sitting For The Study: Due to the inability of young people to obtain positions in industrial and business pursuits, there were in 1936, "more than two million young people on farms who would, under pre-depression conditions, have migrated to the cities". This situation probably forced many persons to remain on farms, to produce feed, to work part-time away from farms for pay, or to take up farming as a full-time occupation. Many thousands of people are born on farms, are trained in that occupation only, and will inherit land or farming equipment, which may influence them to become farmers. Due to t h e improved roads in the country, the extension of power lines, and the use of modern equipment, life in the country has become more comfortable and attractive. Parties, motion pictures, and planned recreational programs bring enjoyable entertainment to the rural people. Therefore, life on the farm is fuller and richer than it formerly was, which may have some influence in causing more young people to consider farming as an occupation and as a mode of life.
