The Lumbee River Electric Mem
bership Corporation, Raefmd, Nortii

from Rural Electrification Adminis
trator Harry Slattery commending it
for making a payment during June
of $6,000 on its REA loan in advance
of the date due, Simerintendent D.
J. Dalton announced today.
Lumbee River Electric Membership
Corporation was one of 122 REA
systems that made advance payments
of more than 600,000 during the month
of June alone.
REA has loaned the Cooperative
$339,443 of the $428,000.00 approved
which has enabled it to develop 475
miles of distribution lines now furn
ishing electricity to 1,159 rural con
sumers in Hoke, Scotland, Robeson
and Cumberland counties.

Attention: Mr. D. J. Dalton, Su
Subject: North Carolina 51 Hc^e.
You are to be commended on the
contribution you have made to the
war effort by making payments on
your REA loan in advance of the due
date. Your Cooperative was one of
122 REIA-financed rural electric sys
tems that made advance ixayments
of more than $600,000 during the
month of June alone.
The way farmer-owners of REA
lines are using their increased income
to redxice their indebtedness ahead
of schedule is gratifying. Besides
providing additional evidence of the
financial soundness of the REA pro
gram, REA cooperatives are carry
ing out the Treasury’s request that
money be taken out of circulation
for the retirement of debts in order
to forestall the dangess of inflation.
An advance payment on'your REA
loan helps the governineBt’s war-fi-
nafifiJng .pfiOfrain more fben w^d.

Every advance payment you ntedee
is also a guarantee that whoi vicioty
has been won, your system ^irtll be
in an exctalent financial position to
continue its program of bringing
power to the farms in your area
which are still without rtectridty.
I am hi^ly pleased with the re
ports coming to me from all ever the
country which tell howindividual
members of the REA cooperatives
are investing large parts of their per
sonal income in Wpr Bemds. This
also is in line with the national drive
to keep down the coat of living.
