OHIO ill El SI ??? ???????????^?4 Columbus. O.. Nov. 21.?Sixty million I dollars to lend and no takers. Such Is the situation of the agrlcul I tural loan agency of the war finance corporation for the state of Ohio. When } the agency had been functioning for a j month in Ohio, not an application for I funds had been filed. J. L. Hamilton. Columbus, chairman of the committee In charge, estimates there Is between $50.00.000 and $60,000,000 available for Ohio farmers. The amopnt, he said, would depend on Just how much Is j wanted. I Ohio headquarters of the corporation are located at 210 South High street, f According to the operation of the war ] finance corporation act passed by con i gress, bankers make application for the loans, which In turn are to he lent to farmer clients In need of money. All transactions are carried on through the banks. When a hank applies for a loan 'from the fund, the state committee either recommends or rejects It, and In the former instance the application Is sent on to Washington with the recom mendation. Congress has appropriated $100,000. 000 for this purpose. The loans are to be made for agricul tural purposes. say9 the act, "that Is. for any purpose connected with the growing, harvesting, preparation for market or marketing of agricultural products; or the breeding, raising, fat tening and rnaretlng of live stoc." and are to be made to banks, trust com panies. etc.. that have made loans for such purposes or that may have dis counted or rediscounted notes given for tie purposes enumerated. If the advance Is to mature within ^slx months and without renewal privi leges. the interest rate Is to he 5 per cent; (lie rate on longer maturities or renewals Is DH percent. Figures at the Ohio committee's office show that farmers in most other states eagerly are taking advantage of the fund, but show'that the heaviest loans have been made In states west of the Mississippi river. The use to which the fund Is being put Is shown by the fact that $300,000 was advanced to a co-operative assoc iation In 'California, on canned fruits and vegetables; $350,000 was advunced to an 'exporter to finance the exporta tion of tobacco to China, and a loan of $1,000,000 was approved to a co-opero tive agency In Arkansas on rice. "All a farmer has to do to take advan tage of the law Is to see his hanker." said Mr Hamilton. It Is up to the, hanks, of course, to make use of the privileges of the aot. Hamilton wilt he glad to send any j Information or application blanks any where In the state He Is at a loss to ascribe the apparent apathy of Ohio banks. Applications for loans may corne In later In numbers, he believes, for stock feeding purposes.

Jaggs! | SSif SUPPOSE it W?S Brown's case that was up for consideration. Brown is heading in a direction that has brought trouble to a lot of people?a direction known to be full of risks. Brown himself isn't going any too good. There are days when he hits the bumps harder than he can comfortably stand?and he shows it. There's another road that Brown could travel safely?smooth, comfortable, pleasant, and absolutely safe. And Brown came to you for advice. And you'd look at the facts and you'd say: "Why, Brown, there's nothing to this thing. It doesn't take any argument to decide this. Turn to the right and take the smooth, safe road, and Do ft Now. I Suppose the road Brown is on is the coffee or tea road. Hundreds have had trouble on that road. Doctors have sounded the warning for the public, and raised the "no-traffic" sign for their patients?time and time again. The drugs, caffeine in coffee and thein in tea, keep whipping the nerves?tending to interfere with sleep, upset digestion, produce high blood pressure, and to wear down health and effi ciency by the disturbance of rest and nervous balance. Some folks go a long way on the road; some folks don't seem to notice the jolts?for a while, anyway. But what would you say to Brown about choosing the safe road instead of the risky one? And suppose Brown were you ? Postum users travel the sunrise road? away from the coffee and tea jolts and risks. Postum is free from the possibility of harm for any one, and full of comfort and satisfac tion for every one. Even the little children can share in the delights of a hot, mealtime cup of Postum. No fears, either that Postum will rob the night of sleep as coffee so often does. Postum is a friendly drink for any one any time. And it's good! When you've tried Postum a few days you'll wonder why you ever thought of sacrifice in leaving off coffee or tea. Rich and flavory and satisfying, Postum suits the taste so that there's no longer any thought that you should drink it; only the thought that you want to drink it. Postum opened the better road and the safe road for coffee and tea drinkers more thanf a quarter of a centuiy ago, and a steadily increasing multitude is traveling that road? up and on to better enjoyment, better effi ciency, better accomplishment. You can buy Postum wherever good food and drink are sold and served. You can begin, now, this turn to the right road which you would so quickly recommend for Brown?by ordering Postum from your family grocer or telling your waiter at the restaurant to serve you Postum instead of coffee or tea. # Make Postum according to directions and enjoy its delicious flavor; find the change in "feeling" after a week's use ofPostum.
