INSANE CLAIM ,r'"""' .'" 1 FSODUCEftS OF LUXURY PREFERRED Meredi pharges Bank en.WitiiIenyjbig Need ed Credit to Farmers. Washington. .Oct, .(United Press. (-Secretary of : Agriculture Meredith today' charged farmers are being denied "needed credit -by banker in faTor of hixuiw produc ers. He made the charge In. a speech at-the opening esfion of 4 tbe annual conyentioa of the Amer ican Bankers' association. More than 2,000 banker from all sec tions of the United States heard Meredith. - ' Farmers of the country will lose $2,500,000,000 if forced 'to market their crops at present prices, Mer edith warned. "The only point at issue," be said, "18 this:. Shall the farmer, whose primary interests are in volved, Je afforded such credit by local banks as will enable him to market' his crop in ,an orderly fashion?" , - Meredith declared the average of all crops on Oct.. 1 was 14 per cent lower than the same day, 1919. "In the spring of 1920, when they were planning their operation for the present season, the farmers were confronted with St very difB cult situation," he said. "There is a shortage of farm la bor estimated at 33 per cent Thei cost of everything the farmer had to . buy was exceedingly high and there was uncertainty as to the future price of farm products. All these things added to the hazard of the undertaking, .but the. farmers did not hesitate. They realized the responsibilities resting on them to v High Prices Rated. , r High .prices ruled while farmers were planting: and cultivating the bunlper crops they were asked to produce, Meredith recalled. - . - "The farmers of the United States this year have produced 3,216,12,- 000 bushels of corn," he said. J At present prices they would receive. lor their crop approximately one half billion dollars less than it would bring on the basis of prices prevailing on Oct 1,; 1919. The cotton crop this year totals 1Z, 000,000 bales. At existing, prices it would lack more 'than one-third of a billion dollars bringing as much as it would nave nrougnt a year ago. Cottonseed, vhicn sold a year ago for 960 a ton, on Sept 1 sold for S20 a ton. Tne wool cup tius year aggregates 259,307,000 pounds. At prices prevailing in septemner last year it would have brought $133,000,000, but this year it would bring only $73,000,000. Weli-Founded complaints. "Apparently well-founded com nlaints have reached the agricul tural department Irons farmers who have been denied, credit lor essen tial productive purposes, while the producers ol expensive luxuries and the dealers in them have been accommodated. , I do not Intend to imply that these bankers have ma liciously chosen to handicap agri culture by the refusal of credit which they might have extended, but rather that they yielded to the temptation of a large immediate income from loans tor less funda mental purposes.. It Is more than probable that the bankers wno 101 lowed a short-sighted policy will in the long run be the losers." i . Must Have Credit. ' "The American people must see .to it that farmers secure credit . . . ,, sufficient for tneir neeas, , air. Meredith continued. "Only thus can they continue to supply the -na lion's need for food.- 1 think you gentlemen fully realise that if the farmer is to continue to produce and to meet the food requirements of the nation, he must have ade quate prices for his products. The farmer is not the only one who would be adversely affected if hd fails to secure a reasonable return for his efforts. I do not think you can fail to see that the farmers' problems are your problems, and that your ultimate prosperity de pends upon a right solution of the difficulties confronting the farm er."

He urged mat Dancer assim cwpcrs tive farmers' enterprises, and ac knowledged that bankers already had. given "very great aid" to ag riculture. ' STEAMSHIP BOCTE MEARI5G. New York. Oct 19.
