' titration the land banks will

state mortgage loans; but the
-.administration Is also providing
, long-needed aystom of short
term production credit for farm
' ars loans to be used for pro
ducing crops and livestock and
repaid at the end of the season.
This Is an entirely new service
for farmers; and It Is designed
to be permanent.
' Farmers In this locality will
' be served by the Klamath Pro
duction Credit association, which
was chartered in January, X934,
to serve producers in Lake and
I , Klauath counties. About rour
or five counties Is the average
slxe of an association. There Is

' : The Klamath P. C. association
was organised through the co-
ODeration of representative farm'
era of the counties Included, with
the assistance of the Spokane
-Production - Credit association
There la one of - these corpora
tlons in each of the 12 land
hank districts In the country. The
local association will obtain
loanable funds from the inter
mediate credit bank of Spokane,
which will lend money on
discount, well-secured notes of
farmers. All of these Institutions
are a part of the farm credit a a
'. ministration.
A production credit associa
tion does not lend government
money. The funds that will be
loaned are obtained bv the In
termediate credit banks which
ell shortterm bonds, or debent
ures, to the Investing puDuc
In other words, the money
la belna- borrowed to be
loaned to eligible farmers to
enable them to produce a sea
son's crops. The association is
not a charltv Institution: but
business credit institution tor
. business - minded farmers. The
purpose is to make loans that
farmers can afford to nse for a
season's operations, and which
will be repaid at the end of the
season. It Is a pay-as-yon-go plan
. for sericulture.
Loans needed to bny work-
, stock, seed, machinery and equip
ment, lor purposes 01 dairy or
poultry farming, or for other
. expenses Incurred tor general
agricultural purposes, may be ob
tained from a production credit
association a s conveniently a s
from any e a r e f u 1 1 y-managed
Most of the loans will run
from S to 12 months, depending
on the length of time required
for growing and marketing the
crop or livestock which the loan
is made to produce. Loans for
crop production win nsuauy ma
ture in less than a year although
loans - such aa those on dairy
and breeding cattle may run
longer up to 18 months.
ADnlications for these short-
term loans are handled In this
territory by Lee S. McMullen.
Applications will be acted upon
: quickly when they give a clear
financial statement of the appli
cant's farming condition, listing
all ' assets and liabilities,- and
estimating net worth. The appli
cant should name specifically the
farming assets offered as secur
ity - for the loan, and give a
plan, -or- budget, showing how
he is -going to use the loan ap
plied for and how he is going to
repay .it.
?' Primary security for produc
tion . loans consists of livestock,
farming equipment, growing
crops, or other personal prop
erty most spproprlate to secure
the loan adequately and make
up a chattel mortgage. It Is not
Intended that loans shall be se
cured primarily by mortgages on
real estate. Where this type of
security Is taken It will be re-
garded only as additional col
lateral. The minimum loan is $50 and
no loan may exceed 20 per cent
of the authorized capital of the
association. The amount of the
loan should correspond with the
actual need for credit. Perhaps
more farmers have become heav
ily involved in debt because of
too much credit than because
of the lack of it. Loans from
production credit associations wil
only be made as needed; and
proper precautions will be taken
to ; prevent over-extension of
credit so that farmers will not
have to pay unnecessary indebt
edness with resulting Interest.
After a farmer's application
is received his financial state
ment Is checked and the prop
erty offered as security for the
losn personally inspected by a
loan Inspector of the association,
The minimum charge for inspect
ion Is S. Kegulatlons about In
spection charges and collection
may be changed as required by
tne production credit corporation,
Usually no charge will be made
for Inspection It the loau la not
It the report of the inspector
Is satisfactory and the loan Is
approved by the loan committee
oi tne association, tne farmer
note is endorsed in the name of
the association, and sent, along
with his credit statement and
chattel mortgage, to the Inter
mediate credit bank of Spokane,
It the bank approves the credit
statement and the security, it
makes funds available to the as
sociation, and the association
sends a check to the borrower
immediately. 1
Each association Is capitalised
according to the credit needs of
the territory it will serve. Most
of the capital stock Is purchased
by the Production credit corpora
tlon of Spokane, Wash., and this
enables the association to begin
making loans Immediately. Funds
derived from the sale of stock
to the corporation are used by
the local association to purchase
nigh grade collateral, cnietly
government bonds, - which are
placed with the Intermediate
credit bank to establish a line
of credit, that is, to get the
bank to discount, or lend money
on, the notes of farmers which
the association has endorsed. Or
dinarily the bank will discount
well-secured farmers' notes u
to five times - an . association
capital. In this way an associa
tion may get all the credit It
The authorised capital stock
of the Klamath production credit
association Is 1500,000. Of thl:
amount the production credit
corporation of Spokane will pay
in, as needed, about $375,000,
making possible a maximum
total of loans of $2,500,000.00
through loans and discounts with
the Intermediate credit bank.
Actually the production credit
corporation owns about three
fourths of the capital stock of an
association. The farmers who
borrow from it own most ot the
remaining portion, each borrow
er being required to own 5 per
cent of the amount ot his loan
in voting stock in the associa
A farmer who gets a loan from
the association does not have
to advance any money to pay
for his stock, as the purchase
price may be included in the
loan, one $5 share being pur
chased as each iioo of the loan
money is advanced. The stock
carries no double liability. Thus
a borrower's liability -in any pos
sible Impairment ot capital of
tne association extenda only to
his own stock holding, amount
ing to $5 for every $100
fraction thereof borrowed.
A farmer doea not have to
purchase new stock each time
he borrows unless the stock he
owns has become Impaired in
value or he wishes a larger loan,
A farmer not indebted to the
association may sell his stock
to another eligible borrower, or
may exchange it at Its fair book
value for non-voting stock. Such
an exchange must be made with
in two years after the holder
ceases to be a borrower.
Stock purchased by the cor
poration Is non-voting, but pre
ferred as to assets in case the
organization is liquidated. The
voting stock is ' owned only by
the borrowing farmers, each hav
ing only one vote in the associa
tion no matter what the amount
of money borrowed or stock
Officers and a local loan com
mittee of each association are
selected by the temporary board
of directors which waB elected
by the charter members when
the association was organized.
At the first annual meeting of
the voting stockholders, that Is,
the farmer borrowers, a board
of directors will be elected, con
firming or replacing the tempor
ary board. Thus each borrower
has an equal chance of voting
his opinion as to the manage
ment of the association.
At present loans from a pro
duction credit association carry
an Interest rate of 8 per cent.
charged on an annual basis, that
is, only for the actual time the
loan is outstanding. A loan for
bIx months, for instance, will
carry an Interest charge of about
$3 on a hundred. The Interest
Is not collected until the loan
is due.
The Interest rate charged the
individual borrower may not ex
ceed by more than 3 per cent
tke rate at which the associa
tion gets money from the in
termediate credit bank. At pres
ent the Interest or discount rate
charged the association by the
intermediate credit bank Is 3
per cent these charges make up
th 6 per cent .Interest rate paid
by the farmer. '
The Interest spread of a per
cent between the rate paid by
the association and that paid by
the borrower goes to the asso
ciation to meet operating ex
penses and build up a guaranty
fund or surplus, needed by any
carefully managed business Institution.
