Banks Led In Loans To '
North Carolina Farmers
During 1952 North Carolina
farmer* called upon the state's
banks to provide them with more
credit than was extended by any
other type of farm lending agency^
according to Jonathan Woody,
president. First National Bank
here, who represents the North
Carolina Bankers Association' as
Haywood County Key Banker.
Quoting from the twelfth an
nual study of farm lending by the
Agricultural Commission of the
American Bankers Association. Mr.
Woody Rioted that on January 1,
1953, North Carolina banks had
loans totaling *52,905.000 out
standing to farmers, compared
with $17,807,000 held by Fedearl
' Land Banks, who had the second
! largest block of farm loans out
"As they have in the past, the
state's farmers continued last year
to turn mostly to their banks when
they needed credit," Mr. Woody
said. "The amount of credit the
farmer needs to run a successful
operation is much larger today
than it has been in past decades,'
he continued. "Farming is now a
machanized. highly competitive
enterprise; and operating a profit
able farm involves a much greater
investment in machinery and mod
ern agricultural methods Hence,
adequate funds are a prime con
cern to the farm operator. Meet
ing his needs for operating credit
is one of the most important ser
vices of North Carolina banks."
Of the farm loans held by banks
at the beginning of 1953, $24,885.
000 was in production loans, com
prising credit extended to finance
the growing and marketing of
crops: breeding, raising and fat
tening of livestock, purchasing of
equipment; etc. This figure com
pares with *8.140,000 in produc
tion loans held by Production
Credit Associations, and $7,278.
000 held by the Farmers Home Ad
The remaining $28,220,000 in
farm loans outstanding in banks
on January 1 was made up of farm
mortgages. All of the $17,807,000
held by Federal Land Banks was
mortgages: with $13,712,000 in
mortgages being held bv insurance
companies, and $12,157,000 held
by the Farmers Home Administra
Mr. Woody reported that 212 of
the 225 insured commercial banks
in North Carolina served agri
culture by making credit available
to farmers during 1952.

The Lagging Child Can Profit
From Good Tutorinq In Summer
ly CARRY CLEVELAND MYERS, Ph.D.
SUPPOSE your child in the
elementary grades is promoted
"on condition," meaning that he
will enter the next grade next
fall if he makes up the arrears
during the summer, or if he
proves during the first several
weeks of September that he can
do the work of this grade. Or
suppose he is promoted, but you
know he lags miserably In one or
several basic subjects.
In any of these Instances, you
might be very wise to employ a
teacher to work with him Indi
vidually for an hour or so a day
during most of the summer. Per
haps you should first have him
studied by a psychologist of your
nearest college or university, or
one recommended by your school.
The findings should be of value
to you and the tutor In planning
a remedial program.
Principal Might Help
Your school principal might be
glad to help you find a good
tutor. I've often thought that If
I were an elementary principal I
would try to Induce certain
teachers to make themselves
available for such service. They
would be teachers with proved

and In guiding him to acquire
the essentials be had failed to

Unfortunately, not nearlv all
teachers have this aptitude; and

Just sets the child to do what he
already has failed to do well. If,
for example, he has lagged or
failed In the third grade, she has
him do more third grade work
in reading, arithmetic or spell
ing. The tutor who really suc
ceeds best goes back wlih the
child In ar.y subject till she finds
the place where he can do well,
and brings him forward from
Best Learning Level
She may discover, for example,
that this third grade child can
read well only at about the first
grade level. Then she should find
him much Interesting materia)
to read at this level of difficulty,

Usually, It's better for this
child to meet the tutor at her

Expect to pay a tutor a reason
