Farm Debt In North Carolina
Hot On Increase, Says Thompson
Despite MUIolne Spent For Farm
Improvement, North Carolina
Farm Debt Has Not Increased
, Substantially, County Banker
While North Carolina farmers
have spent millions of dollars fpr
improvements,' soil conservation,
and the purchase of new equipment
sinee the war's end, farm debt has
made no significant increase; and
holdings in cash, bank deposits,
and U. S. Savings Bonds are at rec
ord levels, according to J. C. Thomp
son, Vice President of Branch
Banking and Trust Co., who repre
sents the N. C. Bankers Association
as a county key banker,
"North Carolina farmers are go
ing through these final months of
adjustment from a war to a peace
time economy with very little dis
turbance," Mr. Thompson said.
"They are maintaining a sound fi
nancial position; and while they
are using more credit for improve
ments and new equipment, their
obligations are being paid off in a
relatively short time and they are
adding to their already substantial
financial reserves." -
In 1949, the last full year of op
eration, the 213 N. C. banks serving,
agricultural communities loaned)
$61,210,000 to 53,652 farmers. This
represents a. total of 18.7 of the

farmers in the state. Of the total
amount, 43,543 farmers borrowed
from the banks to finance produc
tion in an aggregate amount of $44,
083,000. Of these loans, only $11,
176,000 remained outstanding at
the beginning of 1049. During the
year, there were 10,109 farmers,
representing only 3.5 of the far
mers in the state, who made farm
real estate loans in an aggregate
amount ot 1T,127,000. The pros
perity of the farmers Is shown by
th fact that, ot these long term
debts, only $19,196,000 were out
standing at the beginning of this
year. The total bank-held farm debt
on January 1, 1849. was $30,372,000.
Mr. Thompson stated that farm
borrowings are usually a reliable
Indicator of the economic condition
of agriculture and-that one of the
brightest aspects of the present
situation is the fact that the average
loan per borrower during 1948 for
production purposes - was only
$1,012, and the average loan made
on farm real estate was only $1,69.

Poetry's Power '
WHY the appeal of poetry? For
, one thing, it Is vivid. It U in
colors, not severe black and white;
It lives .and breathes, at times it
shouts, and it always sings.
It is true to say "We provi
dential oversight ef the Creator
: is conthraoM sad unremitting-;
-j but it Is more effective to sax,
j "The Lord is my shepherd." B
jr weoM be true to say, "The evt
;. demoes ef ereatlve and bene
' Hoent pnrpese eaa be see
I thrMfhoat all the orders of aa
i tore;" but hew mneh mere
: vivid is the 148th Psalm, eaaV
Ins en hail and fire, ami and
moon and stars of' light, to
' praise the Lord! -
- Another secret of poetry's power
Is that it la the language of emo
tion. Professors and theologians
may be saying the same things as
the poet, and maybe even saying
them more completely and accu
rately; but what they say Is less
'easy to remember.
, So these emotional Psalms will
always appeal, even to the profes
or when off duty, because they
make us feel religion and not mere
ly think It , t,

Pictures of God - .. i
SO IT JS no wonder the Psalms
have been loved and sung all
over the world. We are perhaps the
only religion that has made so
much use of another religion's

Wany of our best hymns and pop
ular gospel songs, as we hive al
ready seen, are based on Psalms.
"Beck of Ages, cleft for me," "A
Shelter in the Time of Storm,"
"Hiding in Thee," they all go
back to the Psalmist's picture of
God as a Rock (Ps. 43:8). The
Pialmist war not , umuong oz . . (
