§Q€lE‘>?éll9El $}lY~’.‘iF£f’L?*?.
The Extension Service was created in l9lA oy the Lmitb»Levcr not which
provided for tne coordination of extension activities already conducted
by the various bureaus of the Department of Agriculture and by the state
agricultural colleges. The Act provided that $l0,000 co paid to each
stete with which to set the extension work in motion, are that the Federal
Government match any amount appropriated by the stutcs and counties in
after years for carrying on the work, In l9l5 the General Assembly of
North Carolina passed the necessary legislation and apyropriated $25,000
per year for the years l9l5—l9l6.
In North Carolina any county desiring an agricultural or home demon-
stration agent must pay approximately one—fourth of his or her salary.
This arrunqcment divided the cost so that the Unitee States Government
pays one~half, the state one—fourth, and the county one-fourth or the
expense of the Extension Service.
As stated by the Smith-Lever Act, the purpose of the Extension Service
is, "to aid in diffusing among the people of the United States useful one
practical information on subjects relating to agriculture and hone ccc-
nonics." To accomplish this, ell educational methons are utilized, but
field demonstretion is probably the most distinguishing feature. The
county agents hold meetings at easily accessible locations anu uemonstiate
improved methods of terracing, pruning, snreying, cunning, etc. They
organize children ani adults in clubs in which subjects related to home
economics and agriculture are studied. The members carry on projects and
experiments under the agent's supervision, enn at their corwlction report
the results to their clubs. Although the county agunts are not allowed
to USG their time in organizing farmers' orpanizutions, tnoy nay give
S¤§€@SYlOH3 une uuvioe. They aid in marketing projects ann fairs, and
furnish any available information concerning {crm and come prcblcms.
North Carolina, like the other forty—sevcn states and tlrcc territories,
has a State Director of Extension who represents jointly the United Statzs
Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina state Collcxe of Agri-
culture and Engineering. The state organination consists of the State
Director of Extension Work, the State Director or Home Demonstration dork
wno is also Assistant Director of Extension, a number of specialists in
aericulture and home economics, four district suoervisors of Home Demon-
stration Work, and four Histrict supervisors or Awricultural Entension
Work, all oi whom have their headquarters in gaieign at the North Carolina
State College of Agriculture and Engineering. County agricultural exten-
sion agents one county home demonstration agents, with headquarters in the
county seats, complete the state organization. All counties which benefit
from the Extension Service must help pay the expense of it. Only ninety-
six of the one hundred counties navc county agricultural agents, enc only
seventy have home demonstration agents. The cxocnwc to tte counties also
explains the frequent lapses in the existence of the Service in individual
counties, as in many cases the work has been discontinued for lack of
county funds, then reestablisned after a few years. ln sono counties the
Service has been established and discontinued as many as three or Your
