The Louisburg association ser

might learn of the credit service
which Is offered to the farmers of
this' section by the association. By
means of production credit as
sociations farmers have been able
to reduce the cost of making and
collecting loans and by keeping
the system on a sound basis they
can obtain funds at costs as low
as those available to any other
"Interest on loans made by the
association is payable when loans
are due and the borrower pays
5 per cent Interest only for the
time he actually has the money.
Each borrower is required to take
out Class B. stock in the associa
tion in an amouqt equivalent to
5 per cent of the loan when he

"Thousands of farmers all over
the country are now stockholders

' The day before he left here with
Mrs. Watkins, Cadell appeared at!
police headquarters, claiming to
be a federal Investigator, and had
police lock up two Itinerant show

ed with the killing of Mrs. W. W.
Mason, wife of a storekeeper, at
Pine View on Thanksgiving Day.
The next day the innocence of the
two prisoners was established
and they were released.
i Since being returned here from
Qreensbora, Cadell has professed
to have some knowledge of th?:
Pine View killing, but Sheriff
Hamlett said he placed little cred
ence In the claims.

THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON
Washington, December 10. ?
The resignation of George N.
Peek, because of his dissatisfac
tion with the new Canadian tariff
agreement. Is more serious than
appears on the surface. Mr. Peek,:
who was shifted frdm the AAA
to the State Department, because
of friction between him and Sec
' retary Wallace, has been one of
the storm centers of the Adminis
tration ever since the Spring of
Mr. Peek is recognized as an
authority on agricultural ques
tions, and while his point of view
on many phases of the Adminis
tration's agricultural policy is
quite different from the official
attitude, be Is regarded as havti\|
a large following among the far
mers of the Middle West, with
whom he has long been influen
In bis efforts in the State De
partment to promote the export
market for American agricultural
products. Mr. Peek frequently
found himself at odds with Secre
tary Hull's point of Tlew. Only
President Roosevelt's personal ap
peals kept him from resigning
tome time ago.
? t-fK nnu domison
The real reason why the Presi
dent's friends and supporters re-!
gret Mr. Peek's resignation is that
they fear he will "do a General
Johnson" on them. George Peek
and Hugh Johnson, former head
|of the NRA, are buddies of long
standing. Both were associated in
the agricultural implement busi
ness in Illinois, and both came
into the Administration with very
definite ideas of what ought to
be done and that they were the
ones who ought to do it.
Gen. Johnson is out, and is
traveling around the country mak
ing speeches and writing articles
attacking the New Deal, although
lie professes great personal loy
alty to the President himself. Mr.
Peek has not intimated that he
intends to do anything of the
same sort, but the fear that he
will use his influence with Mid
Western farmers against the Ad
ministration is widespread among
the President's loyal supporters.
The National Debt
Secretary of the Treasury Mor
genthau's announcement the oth
er day that the national debt of
the United States will rise above
30 billion dollars by the middle of
this month is not regarded, here
as so alarming as the Opposition
! spokesmen profess to believe.
While there seems to be a mystery
as to the "eminent bankers" who,
the President said a few days ago,
told him that the United States i
! could easily carry a Government
debt of 55 billion dollars, there
is a definite feeling among the
financial and economic Advisers
of the Administration that a 30
billion dollar debt, or even one
considerably higher, is nothing to
Sooner or later most of the
Government debt will be refund
ed at from 2 to 2% percent, so
that the tax burden of interest
would amount to less than 3-4
of a billion a year, and that is
not an alarming expense.
The Town send Plan
One of the big fighting issues
that is expected to occupy a good
deal of time in Congress when It
meets next month Is the Town
send plan for old age pensions for
everybody over 60. As advocated
by the Townsendites, it probably
has no chance, but it will have
such a show of voting strength
behind it that there is an excel
lent chance that Congress will be
influenced to increase materially,
the old age allowances under the
Social Security Act. and to make
them applicable immediately in-1
stead of in the more or less dis
In the field of Presidential j
politics great interest is being'
shown here over the rise of Gov
ernor Alf Landon of Kansas to

ground that Senator Borah, this
time, is in dead earnest about
wanting to "be the Presidential
nominee of his party. The strong
