HAPPY DAYS HERE
AGAIN FOR FARMERS
Freeman Gives Example
of How Emergency
Farm Act Works
R A. Freeman, secretary-treasurer
of the Dobson National Farm Loan
Association tells an interesting story
of how the new Emergency Farm
Loan Act is operating to help dis
tressed farmers who owe money and
can't pay it or who are about to be
A month or two ago a certain
farmer in Surry county applied for
a loan of $2,500.00. He owed a cer
tain life insurance company about
$1,600.00 and the local bank about
$1 000.00. The land bank approved
his application for $1,700.00. This
was Sough to pay the insurance
company, who had put their mort
gage in the hands of attorneys for
foreclosure, and who were ready to
proceed to sell him' out. The Land
Bank knew this, and called the Sec
retary-Treasurer up over long dis
tance from Columbia, and asked him
who the farmer was going to get
enough money from to pay the local
bank on its second deed of trust. On
reply that he didn't know where he
could get the money, the Land Bank
says, "let us lend him enough mon
ey on a second mortgage through the
Farm Loan Commissioner under the
New Act of Congress to pay up his
entire indebtedness, and put him on
the Amortization Plan', under which
he will not have to pay any part of
his principal for the next five years
and he will have to pay only four
and one-half per cent on his entire
indebtedness, and will not run the
risk of being foreclosed under a se
cond mortgage within a year by the
holder of the second mortgage." The
Secretary-Treasurer replied that that
would be just fine. The land bank
said if you will have this farmer and
his wife in your office Monday
morning at nine o'clock, May .29th,
we will be thfere and close his loan
on the first mortgage and on the se
. cond mortgage at the same time and
put the farmer on his feet again.
The officials of the Land Bank
came in person as agreed land paid
this farmer out of debt last Monday
and put him on a plan under which
he can pay straight four and one
half per cent interest and no part
of the principal for the next five
years, and prevented his farm from
being sold. This was done the se
cond day after the New Emergency
Act went into effect. This is a con
crete example of how the New Emer
gency Farm Loan Act operates to
save distressed farmers. This was
the first loan made under the Act in
the state of North Carolina.
It looks like that "Happy Days
Are Here Again" for the farmer.
There is no reason now why any good
farmer should lose his farm if he
will apply for relief to the Federal
Land Bank under the recent act
passed by the Roosevelt Administra
