Reduce Farm Debts
Six Million Dollars
The farmers of North Carolina
who have loans through the Feder
al Land Bank of Columbia have put
a good share of their money into debt
retirement, according to Julian H.
Scarborough, president, who reports
that for the year ending March 31
more than six million dollars had
been paid on these loans by farmers
in this state.
"In addition," Mr. Scarborough
said, "a substantial slim has been
handed to the bank in future pay
m?ntsi to be heB tor meeting loan
imtallmente aometime in the future
when the fanner may need some
money to take care of his regular in
stallments. Future payments draw
interest for the farmer at the same
rate he pays on his loan."
Mr. Scarborough stated that a
good share of the farmer's money is
also going into farm repairs, de
fense bonds, and to meet costs of
stepped-up war food production. He
added that so far as Federal land
bank officials could determine very
little of the increased income from
farm products is going into land
speculation, which was the case dur
ing World War I.
The land bank president also said

MR. TOBACCO FARMER:
If you are going to need tobacco flues or flue repairs for the coming sea
son, it will be to your advantage to place your order now. Steel sheets, from
which flues are made, have been placed on the Government priority list, and
the future purchases, if allowed at all, will be at an extremely high price. The
price has already advanced since we purchased our sheets.
This is not an effort to pressure, or scare anyone into purchasing flues; it
is merely a statement of facts, and an attempt to save our customers money, if
