C. A. LINDSTROM, Associate Chief of Motion Picture Service.
Motion pictures have been used by the Department of Agriculture since 1913
as an aid in its educational, administrative, and regulatory work. It was
Secretary "Tama Jim" Wilson who recognized that with the motion picture he
could demonstrate to thousands how to grow hogs or handle the poultry flock
where it had been possible to reach but tens, and at but a fraction of the cost.
Since his time the motion picture has been used, not only to demonstrate, but to
inform and guide the farm people of the country on subjects having to do with
the conduct of their operations, the control of insects and disease, care of
livestock, propagation of plants, conservation, forestry, road building, soils, and
weather. The home was not neglected. Care of home and children, the farm-
stead, clothing were all subjects of Department motion pictures.
Since the start of this war, the Department motion picture program has been
geared largely to assist the farmer in solving the problems brought on by the
necessity for conversion from the crops of peace to unprecedented production of
food and oil and fiber crops required for total war. Certain movies have been
designed to build and maintain morale among the hard-pressed farm people and,
in the interest of harmony and cooperation, to give others an appreciation of
what the farmers are doing to help win the war. Certain films have been of
the "how. to do it" type; others have presented problems for consideration.
The Department's war pictures for farmers may be classified into three main
1. Guidance and incentive pictures, designed to encourage the production of ade-
quate supplies of food, fiber, and oils to meet our war demands and to
stress the need for conservation of our resources.
2. "How to do it" pictures, designed to explain certain steps, processes, or
methods in agriculture, home economics, and forestry.
3. Morale building films, designed to give farmers a true picture of the importance
of their work to our success in the war.
The following are fair illustrations of the first type:
Home on the Range.-When the meat shortage was foreseen, the picture was
gotten out to point the way to increased production. Practices shown are those
advocated in the Government's range program.
Live at Home.-Designed to encourage farmers to grow more foodstuffs for use
at home, thus relieving transportation facilities of a considerable burden and
releasing more of the marketed foods for men in our fighting forces.
Farm Battle Lines.-Brings out the fact that sound farming methods and con-
servation practices will help the southern farmer to produce more fats and oils
and more of the foods needed for the Food-For-Freedom program.
Of the second type are such films as the following:
The Farm Garden.-Presenting the fundamentals of garden husbandry. It
shows how to plan a garden, prepare the ground, when and how to plant, how to
control disease and pests, and how to transplant, thin, and cultivate.

Hemp for Victory.-Thc Japs cut off our supply of East Indian coarse fibers,
niilking it ,necessary for the American farmer to supply the urgent needs of our
Ariy anid Navy with American-grown hemp. Small amounts of hemp had been
grown. The farm practices of these growers are shown with the idea-of encour-
;aging other farmers to grow hemp to meet the war emergency.
Good examples of the third type are:
The Farmer's Wife.-A documentary explanation of the farm woman's part
in winning the war-accepting ihe increased responsibilities of wartime farming
with a -pirit that is an inspiration to young and old alike.
Henry Browne, Farmer.-Shows a representative Negro family doing its plart
in the agricultural war production program, while a son trains with the 99th
Pursuit Squadron near Tuskegee, Alabama.
The foregoing types of films are aimed primarily at the farm people. Others
are designed to meet the needs of the public in general for information on the
food situation. It's Up To You goes into the whys and wherefores of point
rationing and the evils of the black market. Canning the Victory Crop shows
in detail how to can fruits and vegetables. Dehydration shows the advantages
that have accrued through the development of the dehydration industry as a
war measure and what it means to our food economy of the future.
Prints of Department films may be obtained from 52 cooperating films libraries
in 44 of the States, and the Territories of Alaska and Puerto Rico. These
libraries are located at universities and colleges. The agricultural colleges in
some of the States have these film libraries. A catalog of Department films is
:ivailalde for review in the office of each county agricultural agent.
