farm credit plans were added today
to the dozen or more already lie Com

Increase from $10,000 to $25,000 of
the maximum loan which could be
made to an individual farm by co
operative farm land banks is one of
the principal features of' the Nor
beck—Stronp bill. .Senator Norbeck
said that this change "'would "give
local cooperative associations a bet-i
ter chance to complete with the
joint stock land banks." I
Such loans also, under the new
bill, would be available for security
on machinery and other debts of I
borrowers and not limited, as under I
the present law, to land arid build- I
"The bill which I have introduc
ed," Senator Norbeck said, of this
feature, "Makes it possible ,for a I
farmer who owes money on farm
machinery for instance, to place a
mortgage on his land with the fed
eral farm loan associations and pay
off the debt on the farm machinery..
He may also borrow money to edu
cate his family."
Jhe bill also provides for Volun
tary liquidation .of local'farm loan
associations and for appointment of
agents where cooperative banks do
not exist. The latter provision would
make it possible for farmers to ob
tain loans where local associations
have not yet been organized.
The Norbeck-Nelson foreign loan
II. would create a revolving fund
of $200,000 to negot'ate sales of
American products. It is designed to
increase exports of farm products
by advancing funds to foreigners.
