T. Young, president of the Idaho Agricultural Loan company is sued the following statement with reference to the operations and re lief afforded to Idaho farmers by the above company: "The entire plan is based upon the arrangements made with the war finance corporation, thru Eugene Meyer Jr., manager, his representa tives and in co-operation with the Idaho agency of the corporation and the clearing house banks of Salt Lake and Ogden. "The present plan is the result of a series of conferences and under standings between the war finance corporation and officials of this com pany, and it must be remembered that this company can only function by strict adherence to the plan as approved. One of the first condi tions imposed upon this organization . is that the various Idaho banks in + the territory served by this company ♦ enter whole-heartedly into the plan by subscribing stock in this com pany. These stock subscriptions, to gether with' subscriptions by numer ous wholesale and business firms form the basis for the loaning power of this company. Loans can be made up to five times the amount of paid in capital stock, but loans can only be submitted thru banks that are stockholders in this company. Therefore, it behooves every farmer to urge the bank of which he is a customer to join the company so that the farmer can submit his ap plication thru his bank. More than fifty banks have entered their stock subscriptions and appllcjations are coming in daily for approval, but many farmers have written this com pany deploring the fact that they could not get a loan, because the bank of which they were a customer had not seen fit to join the company. It is unfortunate that this condition exists and it is up to those banks who have not entered their subscrip tion to do so at once. "This company is now approving loans and it is expected that funds will be available in not to exceed five days from the time the bor rower's application is sent in from his bank. A representative of thewar finance corporation is located in this city and will pass upon all loans in co-operation with the executive committee of this company. Loans do not have to go to Washington for approval and as many short-cuts as possible have been made, in order to facilitate the closing of all loans "A great deal of stress has been placed by various people upon the cost to the farmers of making a loan Assume that a farmer desires to bor row $500 the proceedure will be a" follows: He will go to his bank to make the application and must of fer a Chattel mortgage upon his live stock and machinery and crop mortgage as security for the amount of money he desires to borrow. The funds on the loan will be made available thru his bank in install ments as the farmer needs them to mature his crops, and he should state in his application the date and amount desired in each installment and for what purposes the money is to be used. "All loans mature on or before December 15, 1922 and interest will be at the rate of 7% per cent per annum, but the farmer has to pay interest only from the time each in stallment is disbursed, and if the loan is paid off before maturity, in terest will cease when the loan is paid. 'A farmer is required to take out 10 per cent of his loan in stock in this company which is withheld from the first installment of the loan and is pledged as additional se curity, but this money will be re turned to the borrower when the company is dissolved, less losses, if any. a ^ her Soda gave pro talk ill. his of in is of in is be peg tic the a of of P. of S. a "The total expense to the bor rower of making a loan cannot ex ceed $10, which include the record ing fee, recorder's certificate, the making out of the papers and in spection fee. If the borrower's bank will make out the papers and make the inspection free of charge which is being done in most instances, the total expense should not be over $5. "Fire insurance will only be re quired on certain crops and the premium will not exceed $3 on a $500 loan. Hail insurance will be required only in those districts shown on insurance company maps as hail districts, and this item, when required, will not exceed $30 on a $500 loan. The expense of hail in surance cannot be considered an ex pense of the loan itself, for the rea son that if a borrower is in a hail district he needs the protection for himself as well as to protect his loan, and the hail insurance pre mium is no more of an expense to the actual loan than a live insurance premium is an expense of a business. "Every protection possible for the stockholder has been made, and may be properly expressed in the words of W. W. Armstrong, president of the National Copper Bank of Salt Lake City, who said, 'You are to be congratulated upon the complete ness, comprehensiveness and full ness of your papers and> the safe guards that you are placing about each one of these loans.' "This company was formed to help Idaho farmers and is now ready to make loans, but co-operation is needed from every bank, if farmers are to be properly financed. Similar work is being done in to in it to soil the mits bed five a the so the of to large sults small Blackfoot loaning war finance funds by George F. Gagon in the second story of the Standrod Bank build ing, and by J. B. DeHart in the Mil lick block, Thorstenberg Realty of fice. They all make loans on chattel security. 1 TOURISTS TRAVEL STARTS EARLIER THIS YEAR A bulletin of the Idaho Automo tive Trades association states that reports to the assocaition show that tourist travel has started unusually early in Idaho this year and is looked upon as indication of a heavy influx of tourists during the mer. sum Requests for information as to road conditions received by the as sociation also donate unusual travel by auto. The association's bulletin recites that the roads east of Boise to Salt Lake, via Twin Falls and Pocatello, , are in good shape for the most part. One piece of construction on the road between Boise and Mountain Home forces temporary use of a parallel road, but it is expected this work will be completed by May 15. The highway north of Pocatello is in good condition. Travelers going west are notified that the roads are open and in fair shape as far as LaGrande, but until possibly May 15 or the first of June they will have to ship their cars from LaGrande to Pendleton by rail. Beyond Pendleton the roads are in good shape. 4 WHY MOPE? By GUY FLENNER The Mountain States Telephone company has arranged to spend a very large sum in betterments in Idaho this year. The telephone com pany, aside from its desire to give present service, believes in Idaho's future and is building and extending and enlarging in harmony with its belief. The Oregon Short Line will this year spend a large amouftt of money, a couple of million or so, in improve ments, which will include more double tracking around Glenns Ferry and extension to certain points in order to give additional rail transportation to crops. The Oregon Short Line also has faith in Idaho's future and is making these important improvements in line with that faith. The Idaho Power company, like wise building its business and creat ing its plants on Idaho's future, is arranging for important extensions and betterments. Work may be started this year on the great American Falls dam, which will circulate a very large amount of money for labor and sup plies. This development is up to the sections of Snake river valley that desire supplemental water supply to give them irrigation insurance as against periodical and in some cases, yearly shortage of water. A large wheat crop is promised and the outlook for prices is most favorable. A heavy fruit crop is indicated and the dairy and poultry business is being extended rapidly and is be coming a steadily increasing source of wealth. Our great and most vital timber ing resource has found demands that justify operations on a considerable scale. The essential livestock industry is coming back strong and mining is being prosecuted as not before in years. The financial skies are clearing and people are getting out of the rut and setting their faces toward a definite goal—placing themselves in position to take the fullest possible advantage of the rapidly returning good times. What is there to mope about? With the large amount of money to be expended this year in the de velopments here noted, which means quite an additional expenditure in ramifld endeavor, and with good crop and industrial conditions, Idaho will soon be not only back where the state was before depres sion swept over the country, but ahead of conditions at that time. Then we can invite Edward G. Lowry to come out again and re write his story of Idaho, in full con fidence he will find absolutely no peg upon which to hang a pessimis tic protrayal. * ONION PRODUCTION Onions do best In rich soils that have been under cultivation for several years. The land should be very smooth and have a slight slope to insure drainage. To put the soil in the best condition in this section it is advisable to apply the manure to the land in the fall and plow it under so that the fertilizer may de compose, moisture be retained in the soil and make it possible to plant earlier in the spring. The land should be plowed six inches deep. In the spring, as soon as weather per mits the land should be disced, har rowed and smoothed as a fine seed bed is absolutely necessary. Plant at the rate of from three to five pounds of seed to the acre with a common garden planter such as the Planet Junior No. 2. Some successful growers of this county make the rows twelve and sixteen inches apart and irrigate in every other row, the sixteen interval, so that the onions will not be covered in making the furrow. If the water is made to run slowly down the rows it will sub across and thoroly wet the soil. The moisture should meet in the center and the twelve inch space. As soon as the onions are up the ground should be stirred to kill weeds and should be cultivated at regular intervals thruout the season. Onions should be left naked on top of the ground and not covered in cultivation. They should be thinned to three inches to produce a uniform large onion. Onions give best re sults under intensve cultivation and receive more care when grown on small acreages.
