MOTION PICTURES OF THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Prepared by Division of Motion Pictures, Extension Service

INTRODUCTION The educational motion pictures available from the United States Department of Agriculture deal with important lines of work in which the Department and cooperating State institutions are engaged. They are used to disseminate useful information, and to assist the Department in its extension, regulatory, and administrative work. They are made to acquaint the public with the practical significance of important activities, disseminate the results of scientific investigations, and to spread knowledge of improved methods in agriculture, home economics, conservation, forestry, road building, rural engineering, and kindred subjects. These films are also designed to aid in the work of the extension and field workers of the Department and cooperating State institutions. The number of copies of films that the Department is able to supply is inadequate to meet all requests. However, loans are made to farmers' organizations, schools, colleges, churches, theaters, and other agencies wishing to borrow films, whenever copies of the desired pictures can be made available.

HOW MOTION

PICTURES ARE DISTRIBUTED

Department motion pictures are distributed in the States of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming by the Extension Service, State Agricultural College, Corvallis, Oreg.; in the States of California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona by the Extension Division, University of California, Berkeley, Calif. Applications for motion pictures from those States should be addressed to the distributor serving them. Applications from other States should be addressed to the Division of Motion Pictures, Extension Service, United States Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. Preferably, applications should be sent through the local county agricultural agent. Field workers of the Department should send their applications through their respective bureaus. (1)



When

requesting motion pictures, applicants

should state whether 35- millimeter (standard width) or 16-millimeter (narrow width), and

whether

silent

or

sound motion pictures are

desired.

BORROWERS PAY TRANSPORTATION There are no rental charges for films. Borrowers are required to pay for transportation from and to the shipping point. The western distributors make a small service charge. In all cases it is necessary that some responsible person assume responsibility for transportation charges, as well as for the safe-keeping, proper use, and prompt return of the films. Applications for films should be made as far in advance as possible and, preferably, should specify several alternative choices of subjects and periods of time. Do not ask for a loan period longer than the time actually contemplated for the use of the picture or pictures desired. Schedules of proposed showings, or other definite information indicating the use proposed for the films, should accompany applications. Practically all of the films are on slow-burning stock, and this stock is being used for all new subjects.

HOW MOTION

PICTURES MAY BE BOUGHT

To State agricultural colleges and other distributing agencies, including public schools, farmers' organizations, development associations, and boards of trade reputable organizations of every sort is offered a plan of purchasing prints from Department of Agriculture negatives at relatively low cost. Under this plan individuals or organizations may be authorized by the Department to buy copies of its films from a commercial manufacturer at contract prices, the result of comThe prices vary somewhat from year petitive bidding. Until June 30, 1938, they are approximately to year. as follows:



35-millimeter safety stock: Sound or silent, $22.50 per reel. 16-millimeter safety stock: Sound, $10 per reel; silent, $6 per reel.

Purchasers are required to pay transportation charges on new prints from the commercial manufacturer's laboratory, and in some cases they must pay for the transportation of the negative from the laboratory in Washington to the contractor. Titles in foreign languages, if desired, may be obtained at additional cost. The conditions governing purchases are that no changes be made in the subject matter of the films without the approval of the Department, that credit to the Department be retained, and that no commercial advertising matter be added to or inserted in the films. _
