U. S. Loans Fill
Real Need in
Farm Financing
Project renewed by bill
signed last week; 20
years to pay
Land Bank Commissioner loans

farmers of Benton county under the
terms of legislation signed last week
by President Roosevelt, C. W.
Dykes. secretary-treasurer of the
Benton County National Farm Loan
Association. announced this week.
Original authorization for these
loans expires June 1.
~ Land Bank Commissioner loans
usually are written as second mort
gage loans in connection with Fed
eral Land Bank Loans, thus permit
ting loans of as much as 75 percent
of the appraised agricultural value
of Jar-ms where that much credit is
needed and is justified by the se
curity. Under certain conditions.
they may also be written as first
mortgage loans.
Interest rate on Land Bank Com
missioner loans is 5 percent, and the
usualterm of the loan is 20 years,
semi-annual payments on the prin
cipal retiring the loan by the end of
its term.
,“Originally authorized in- 1933 as
an emergency masure.” Dykos said,
“Commissioner loans have filled a
real need in farm financing. They
have enabled thousands of farmers
to consolidate indebtedness at low
er rates or! interest and begin to
make progress inseam out or debt.
They have helped many tenants be
come farm owners. And of course,
during the depression, they made it
possible (for thousands of farmers to
keep :famrs they otherwise would
have lost if such loans had not been
"Cammissioner loans are made 'by
' the {Federal Farm Mortgage Corpor
ation through Metal Land Banks
and are serviced by local national
(arm loan associations, exactly as

Local Police “Discover”
New Rubber Source
Rubber will win the war, accord
ing to the latest. propaganda.
If this is true. we've got it cinch
ed right now, for Kennewick’s chief
of police has located a weed grow
ing wild here that has all the prop
erties of crude rubber and there’s
plenty of the stuff growing wild.
While the stuff acts like a milk
weed, it isn't. Sampleare to_be sent
to the state college for identification
and an investigation undertaken to
determine just what use might be
made of the plantand its juice.
The “milk' makes a grand paste
—dried a little into a soft .ball it
acts like bubble gum, stretches and
snaps Iback into shape. Anyway,
Frank Visger and the police are go
ing to learn more about it.
Maybe the Japs did .us some good
after all when they cut ofif our for
eign rubber supply!
