I PREFAQQ
T The l¢r;lI
; The Agricultural Adjustment Act was passed in March 1933 and had for
{ its chief purpose the improvement of the lot of the farmer by creating
{ "parity" for his products with those of industry. The chief means for
U accomplishing this end was the control of production. Cooperation by the
i farmer was allowed to be entirely voluntary in the 1933 program, but under
the Bankhead-Jones Cotton Act and the Kerr-Smith Tobacco Act, both passed
; in 1934 and effective in 1934 and 1935, cooperation became compulsory.
[ Though the Agricultural Adjustment Act did not mention the Extension
c Service, the Secretary of Agriculture felt that the officers of this
A agency, because of its extensive organization and experience in the field,
j could best act as key men in the Adjustment Program. These agents were
V therefore drafted into the program, and the Agricultural Adjustment Ad-
ministration made an allotment to the Extension Service to enlarge the
j state and county Extension staffs.
The program was inaugurated in North Carolina in May 1933 under an
administrative set-up as follows:
The State Director of the Extension Service was made State Director of
, the AAA. Directly under him were a Director of the Division of Cotton
and a Director of the Division of Tobacco. Under the Director of the
Division of Cotton was an Assistant Director of Cotton, who was also
, Director of the Division of Wheat and Corn-Hog. Under the Director of
Tobacco was an Assistant Director of Tobacco who was also Director of the
Division of Peanuts and Potatoes. These men actually handled the work,
while the State Extension Director served merely in an advisory capacity.
V The county organization was much the same. The County Agricultural
Extension Agent was made County Director for the AAA. Under him, if the
county were large and produced both cotton and tobacco, were usually two
_ different employees: a County Director of Cotton and a County Director
Z of Tobacco. lf the county were small or raised only one of these two
T crops, there was usually only one employee under thc County Agent, known
, as the Assistant to the County Agent,
5 There were, of course, numerous clerks, typists, surveyers, and the lik
j working at different levels in the various divisions.
rg When the crop control phases of the agricultural adjustment program
E were declared unconstitutional on January 6, l936, the field work of the
l} Administration in North Carolina was discontinued. The organization con-
,2 tinued in existence, however, until December 1936, while its affairs were
p being liquidated. Useless papers were destroyed by permission of the
A Washington office and records were left in custody of the State Director
of the Extension Service and the various County Agricultural Extension
1 Agents.
§ In 1936 Congress passed the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment
{ Act, in an attempt to secure parity for agriculture by means of soil con-
Y Servation. This act is still in force (January, 1937). The program is
{ not compulsory, but the Secretary of Agriculture promises every farmer who
? cooperates in certain specified ways that the Government will pay him

 { Agricultural Adjustment Administration 2
t
i rent for his idle land. Nearly all farmers in the state are participating, *
? so that'the Soil Conservation program is merely a different means to the
= same end.
d Although the majority of County Agricultural Extension Agents keep their
g AAA records separate from the records of the Extension Service, in some A
} offices the records of the two agencies are kept in such e way that they
, cannot be surveyed separately. The section on the Extension Service should
j, y therefore be consulted for further information on the location of AAA
records. The history of each county agency is also given in the section
on the Extension Service. It is advisable to consult the section on the
_ Bureau of Agricultural Economics for additional information on the lo- p
I cation of AAA records. r

in the present guide are listed by number only. The following is a list
