This study has been made to present the effect of industrial employment upon the farming programs of Haywood Community of Liberty County, Texas from 1930 to 1955 & and it is the aim of the writer to present a fair word picture of the effect of industrial employment upon the farming programs during these years, On the other hand, this study attempts to determine the possibilities of a profitable type of farming for the writer to use to develop a suitable course of study for the Vocational Agriculture Department of the Woodson High School. It is true that a great number of people of this community have migrated to the manufacturing centers in the northern and the western states, yet the fact remains that the majority of those remaining still carry on some farming activities each year. This community is located in the southeast end of Liberty County on the edge of the Coastal Plains, The soils are light sandy and sandy loam in the timber areas, black waxy on the prairies and low lands. This community is divided by United States Highway 90 which is widely known as the Old Spanish Trail. There are several cities within a radius of sixty miles of Raywood, among the larger industrialized cities are Houston, Tort Arthur, Baytown, Beaumont, Silsbee, and Pasadena.
