The objective of this study was to determine insofar as possible, and feasible whether practical differences of opinion appeared to exist among rural leaders in Union County Arkansas with respect to relative importance of certain types of proposed leader training activities. More specifically, this study proposed (1) to evaluate certain types of proposed leader training activities in terms of felt needs of rural leaders in order to carry out the total extension program successfully, and (2) to determine and present certain characteristics of rural leaders, such as farming status, age and amount of formal school training.
This study involved present Negro rural community leaders in Union County, Arkansas. The effective use of this particular study is probably limited to the next twenty years, since the trend is toward developing a better agricultural extension program that will serve all rural and urban people in the county. The public jobs are becoming over stocked with laborers, and the demand is not keeping up with mass production.
