FEDERAL LAND BANK
HE1P3 POISON RATS
The Federal Land Itank of Om
aha and the Federal Farm Mort
gage Corporation are two organ
izations that took quite a part in
the state's rat control campaign.
These orginizations offered to pay
for poison material to $1.00 for
each of their improved farms.
Since $1.00 is enough to provide
for good poisoning and a cleanup
baiting on the average farm this
paved the way for many Neb: as
I kans to rid their farms of rats with
little or no cost to thmaarii
A large number of other farm
era in Holt County made an off nr*
to take part in the ‘'rat rampaiga
according to the number of if
quirics received by county um
Lyndle Stout. Regardless of hot
many rats were killed.’ by? Ut

without a doubt a few of them es
caped. That’s why a cleanup cam -
