ACTIVITIES UNDER VARIOUS APPROPRIATION ITEMS

A discussion of the activities under the various appropriation items and tabulation of amounts involved under each, follows:

COOPERATIVE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION WORK (SUPPLEMENTAL SMITH-LEVER

APPROPRIATION) Appropriation: 1932

$1, 580, 000 1933

1, 580, 000 1934.

11, 580, 000 Estimated obligations, 1934.

11, 580,000 Budget estimate, 1935.

1, 185, 000 Decrease, Budget 1935, compared with estimated obligations, 1934. 2 395, 000

WORK DONE UNDER THIS APPROPRIATION

These funds supplement the permanent annual appropriation provided under the Smith-Lever Act (May 8, 1914, Stat. 372–374, U.S.C., 114). Like the SmithLever funds, they are paid directly to the State colleges of agriculture as Federalaid for the promotion of extension work in agriculture and home economics. This appropriation is divided among the States and Hawaii in the proportion that the rural population of each bears to the total rural population of the States and Hawaii, and is available only when offset with funds from within the States. This item contains a provision that not more than $300,000 may be expended for purposes otner than salaries of extension agents in counties. As $300,000 is approximately 25 percent of the total appropriation, this means that approximately 75 percent of the funds must be expended for salaries of county extension agents. The State allotments are paid directly to a designated officer in the State and are disbursed in accordance with budgets and programs of work submitted by the_State directors of extension and approved by the Secretary of Agriculture. Expenditures by the States from this and other cooperative extension appropriations are subject to an annual inspection by representatives of the department.

! Direct payments to States and Territories for 1934 are subject to reduction of 25 percent from March 4 to June 30, 1934, inclusive, by Executive Orders Nos. 6166 and 6221. The net reductions for 1934 would be approximately 8 percent.

* The decrease of $395,000 represents a reduction of 25 percent for direct payments to the States and Territories pursuant to Executive Orders Nos. 6166 and 6221.

COOPERATIVE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION WORK (CAPPER-KETCHAM

ACT) Appropriation: 1932.

$1, 480, 000 1933

1, 110, 000

Decrease, Budget 1935, compared with estimated obligations,

1934.

2 370, 000

WORK DONE UNDER THIS APPROPRIATION

This appropriation is specifically authorized by the provisions of the CapperKetcham Act of May 22, 1928 (45 Stat., 711, 712). This act authorizes an appropriation of $980,000 to be divided at the rate of $20,000 to each State and to Hawaii, without requirement for State offset, and an additional $500,000 to be divided among the States and Hawaii on the basis of rural population. It provides that at least 80 percent of the funds appropriated under this authorization shall be expended for salaries of county extension agents and that the extension agents appointed under its provisions shell be men and women in fair and just proportions.

$10,000 1933.

12, 000 1934.

112, 000 Estimated obligations, 1934.

The extension work in agriculture and home economics is of a similar nature to that which is being conducted in the States, modifications being made to suit local conditions. Experiment stations have been maintained by the Federal Government in Alaska for many years, but extension work was not systematically hegun among farmers until 1931.

1 Direct payments to States and Territories for 1934 are subject to reduction of 25 percent from Mar. 4 t Juae 30, 1934, inclusive, by Executive Orders Nos. 6166 and 6221. The next reductions for 1934 would be approximately 8 percent. *The decrease of $370,000 from Capper-Ketcham Funds for Extension Work represents a reduction of 3 percent for direct payments to the States and Territories pursuant to Executive Orders Nos. 6166 and

The decrease of $3,000 from Alaska funds for extension work represents a reduction of 25 percent for direct payments to the States and Territories pursuant to Executive Orders Nos. 6166 and 6221.
