     Of all the Federal programs set up this farm to assist the
cut over areas, t.h- most benefit has been derived from the Isolated,
Federal Purchase Pi-iect.   To date, ninety such cases have been
purchased within the County, which have materially reduced t'ae
public expenditures in the municipalities concerned. In tvo
instances, two schools were closed, which saved $1,200.00 annually
to these two schocl districts. In many other instances, the
relatively high cost of transportation, relief, etc., were elim-
inated.

interwoven in any development program in Bayfield County.
