I Raleigh, Oct. 28.—"1n vnwf'of.the
seriou-, drought conditions that have

of our counties, something * must be

". Commissioner of" Agriculture Wil

its provisions. This law, lie pointed

the farmers producing them as they
must be used to carry these farmers

many Instances, nothing short of
“And so, it would seem to me, the
, time has come to turn attention to
other means of credits. It is in this
connection that I cite the intermedi

federal government to take oare of j
just such situations ns that which I
now confronts many of our farmers, j
, This situation was brought about not

“In order.to lap this source of
credit," Commi-.ioner Graham said,
"it is necessary for a farm communi

not in a position to hnndle the situa
