Credit, a capital idea. Sound, color, 16
mm, 13% minutes.
In this fully-animated film, a modern
farmer is transformed into a delightful
cartoon character-a big game hunter
who goes on safari through the financial
jungle in search of the elusive quarry
of profits. Sprinkled throughout with
light humor, the educational film estab-
lishes the path our farmer-hunter must
follow to bag profits from his farming
operation. Tips on how to use credit
profitably is the design of this film.
And while it is primarily directed at
the wise use of credit in agriculture, the


principles explained are applicable to
borrowing in other businesses and to
personal finances. TV cleared.
The man in green. Sound, color, 16mm,
283% minutes.
This is the story of the State Forestry
organizations. "The Man in Green" is
many men . the State Forester, the
District Ranger, the Service Forester,
and the Urban Forester. These men
function in their State capitals, and in
their States' forests, private woodlands,
and metropolitan areas. Their work
affects almost everyone. TV cleared.
Who shall reap? Sound, color, 16mm,
28 minutes.
Dramatizes the never-ending struggle
of farmers the world over to protect
their crops and livestock from the rav-
ages of insects, diseases, weeds, and
other pests. It contrasts the primitive
ineffectual pest control methods still in
use in many parts of the world with
sophisticated modern control technology
developed in this country and the sub-
stantial benefits to the consumer and
to the nation resulting from the use of
this technology. The film focuses on
current research efforts to develop even
more efficient, safer methods of protect-
ing food, fiber, and forests from pests
to meet the needs of an exploding
world population. TV cleared.
