This study is an analysis of the programs of the fourteen farms under the Federal Security Administration which are located at Prairie View, Texas. Its purpose is to determine through such analysis if the programs of these farmers from the time they were begun to the present have proved successful, thereby determining if the farmers to whom the farm ownership loans have been made are good risks.
A history of the Federal Security Administration is first given in the introduction; then follow case studies of the fourteen farms based upon information obtained from the inquiry forms that the writer took to each farm and filled out and from interviews with the Senior Administrative Assistant of the Farm Home Administration, the present agency having control of these farms, and upon the observations of the writer upon visiting each of the farms. Each of the case studies gives personal data on the farmer, a description of the farm lay-out, a detailed analysis of each enterprise Included in the farm program, with the income from each enterprise being given, and a summary of the condition of the farm as observed by the writer. The summary gives a statement of the trends of the fourteen farms.
