Farmers Planning to
Get Ahead on Debts
With farm returns up and interest
down, northwest farmers are plan
ning to make 1937 a debt-clean-up
year and in many cases get ahead of
schedule on their mortgage pay
ments, according to reports received
by the Federal Land bank of Spo
kane from the field.

rowers to pay extra amounts in good

conditions that may later follow. This
policy not only provides a practical
form of thrift and protection ,the
bank points out, but borrowers may
also save interest thereby.

marked "paid in full" was the happy
experience of 485 Land bank bor
rowers during the past fiscal year,

have paid off their special commis
sioner loans during the past three
recovery years, wiping out a total in
debtedness of $1,748,217 more.
"Getting out of debt is the best
investment any farmer can make" is
the slogan which the Land bank is
