Dangers of Benkruptcy
Act for Farms Explained
Recent additional information re
garding the Frazier-Lemke amend
ment to the Federal Bankruptcy
laws designed to enable a farmer
to go into bankruptcy as a means
of retaining possesion of a debt
ridden farms, tends to confirm, the
early opinion that this is in the na
ture of a "club behind the door"
and is something which will not be
used to advantage by many farm
ers. This is the opinion of L. R.
Breithaupt, extension agricultural
economist at Oregon State college,
who is also secretary of the Oregon
Agricultural Advisory council.
Mr. Breithaupt recently supplied
all county farm debt adjustment
committeemen with a complete an
alysis of the farm bankruptcy act
recently appearing in the National
Grange Monthly. "It is noteworthy
that county farm debt adjustment
committees are still regarded as the
best bet for farm debtors who need
help in adjusting and refinancing
their indebtedness," says Mr. Breit
haupt. "Their work is expected to
increase rather than decrease as a
result of this amendment"
The article in the National Grange
Monthly points out that in the ov
erwhelming majority of cases vol
untary conciliation by a local farm
debt adjustment committee still of-

Although there are some attrac
tive prospects indicated by a casual
perusal of the bankruptcy amend
ment, it holds many serious dangers
for any farmer, the article contin
ues. A six year purchase plan is
one provision and a rental plan of
settlement is another, but the pros
pects are than any farmer taking
the bankruptcy route may find him
self farming under the jurisdiction
of a court.
Either way out under bankruptcy
the farmer will have good sized
payments to meet, he must pay in
terest and principal or annual ren
tal and all taxes. The court prob
ably may also require the farmer to
keep up full insurance on all build
ings and will hold him responsible
for any deterioration of the prop
erty. Certainly, it will not pay the far
mer to flirt with bankruptcy where
he has any equity at all left in his
property. Meanwhile, the county

AAA Program Affects
Majority of Farmers
Current activities in agricultural
adjustments are of direct or indi
rect importance to most of the far
mers in the state, reports the Ore
gon State college agricultural ex
tension service. Approximately one
fifth of Oregon's farmers have sign
ed up either for wheat or corn-hog
production adjustments, while the
business of additional thousands
will be influenced materially by the
cattle and sheep purchase program,
other drouth relief activities, farm
loans, and other programs. I
More than 1,000 counties, mostly
west of the Mississippi river, are In
the emergency drouth classification
and about 400 are secondary drouth
counties. The government program
for buying cattle and sheep in emer
gency drouth counties has already
resulted In the purchase of about
2 million cattle. Plans are under
consideration for the purchase of
perhaps 4,000,000 more cattle and
from 2 million to 5 million sheep
The hog, cattle and sheep pro
grams are bound to reduce surplus
meat production very materially in
1935, and affect the markets for
dairy, poultry and other products
Other important activities Include
marketing agreements on fruits,
the North Pacific Emergency Wheat
Export operation, the seed purchase
and conservation program, feed nd
forage loans in drouth areaa, and
mortgage, production and market
Word has been received by the
extension service that the North Pa
cific Emergency Export association
may not operate in removing the
surplus portion of the 1934 wheat
crop in the Pacific Northwest, if
this wheat can be moved to other
parts of the United States. Since
this agency was set up last year, ex
ports equivalent to nearly 28 mil
lion bushels of surplus wheat have
been made to foreign countries. Dif
ferential payments have amounted
to more than $5,000,000 or about 22
cents a bushel and prices have risen
to about 15 cents under Chicago.
Wheat Measuring Ended;
Corn-Hog Solution Pends
Rapid progress in measuring and
computing the acreage under the
wheat adjustment contracts indi
cates that by the middle of August
the work will be practically com
pleted in Oregon with most of the
compliance forms on their way to
Washington, says N. C. Donaldson,
state supervisor of the wheat con
trol program stationed at Oregon
By the end of the first week in
August all counties had finished
measuring except Umatilla and
Wasco where they are using air
planes and doing most of two years
work at once, and in Wallowa
where the committee got a late
start. Crews of official checkers
have checked the work on the re
quired number of farms In each
county as the measuring and com
putation was completed.
Submission of the compliance
forms to Washington will clear the
way for the second Installment pay
ment on the 1933 adjustment. Word
from Washington is that as each
county's forms are received the
batch will be given a number and
that Issuance of checks will follow
