Land Bank Reports
Year of Progress
Despite price declines for farm
products and drought east of the
Rockies, farmers' mortgage loan op
erations through their district land
bank at Spokane made substantial
headway during 1937, it is brought
out in the annual letter President E.
M. Ehrhardt recently sent to the
400-odd national farm loan associa
tions in the four northwest states.
The local associations, now con
ducting their business through 82
group offices located at central
points throughout the northwest,
own nearly $6,000,000 of capital stock
in the district bank and have ap
proximately 38,000 mortgage loans
on their books, closed through the
bank on a cooperative basis for local
farmer-members during the past 20
years of operation.
"Financially, the bank's position is
stronger than at any time during
recent years," President Ehrhardt
reported to the associations. "Delin
qencies have decreased, a record vol
ume of acquired real estate was
sold during the year, expenses have
been cut down, net earnings increas
ed and service to member-borrowers
Although fewer Commissioner
loans were closed through the bank
last year, there was a small gain in
regular land bank loan closings and
a larger percentage of loan proceeds
was used to help finance the pur
chase of farm land, Mr. Ehrhardt
pointed out. This is an encouraging
trend back to the major purpose for
which the bank was organized in
1917, he commented, namely, to help
qualified young farmers and tenant
farmers acquire farms of their own
on a sound basis.
Again duping the past year new
loans, bearing association endorse
ment and guarantee, were written
at the record low interest rate of
4 per cent per annum, with provision
for the principal to be automatically
liquidated through amortized pay
ments over 20 to 34-year periods.

estrians, State Secretary Earl Snell

cent of all traffic fatalities in this
state during 1936 nearly as much
as all types of collision accidents
Of 2,838 fatal traffic accidents in
California last year, at least 617, or
21 per cent, are known to have in
volved drivers or pedestrians who
had been drinking intoxicants to
excess, according to information
from that state.

Provoke Keen Interest
Keen interest on the part of both
men and women is being shown the
series of county farm economic con
ferences being held throughout the.
state under the sponsorship of the
Oregon State college extension ser
vice. Attendance at the meetings al
ready held far exceeded expecta
tions in many instances, according
to extension officials. The plan this
year of including women and rural
home interests in the scope of the
discussions has proved popular.
The first group of conferences
has now been completed with no
more scheduled until February 14.
The schools for that week will be
Benton county, February 14; Mult
nomah and Lane counties, February
15; Columbia county, February 16;
Clatsop and Hood River counties,
February 17; Tillamook and Wasco
counties, February 18; Lincoln and
Sherman counties, February 19.
Committees are at work in these and
other counties where conferences
are still to be held, preparing ten
tative reports for use in the conferences.
A prominent civic leader in a New
Jersey city is wearing out his listen
ers on the subject of safety, but he
has no choice in the matter. A judge
who found the civic leader guilty on
a speeding charge sentenced him to
speak on safety at every function
he attended from October 30th, 1937,
to October 30th, 1938, and he's doing
a good job of "serving his sentence."
