PAGE EIGHT DEBT GOES Hollywood's New May It Wave jAncient. "Garbage Hea'j>"~ ., i Tapped by Well Drillers Figure Stands At 17 In! 1,000 During Past Two J Years ; WASHINGTON (Ul 1 ;— The Asri- i culture Department reported irxlny i that. 17 out of every 1,000 funii i owners last Ihoir farms by fore- ! closure last year, tiie same number i as in 1938. • This WHS slightly smaller than j the 1925-29 average of yi pi-r i.uotj' and considerably Jess tlian the ' 183:! depression record of 54 per i 1,000. Most of the foreclosures still j arc by commercial banks and In- | suratice companies. j One out of every five fnrnis Dint 1 changed hands Husl year was class- i cd by the bureau of agricultural economics as a "forced s.i!c." The 1930-34 -average was. one out ol every Tour, compared with one out of every 28 In W10-14. Debt Major I'rolilem "In spile of the efforts of ]'«!- eral credit agencies to relieve the farm-mortgage situation there is still widespread evidence Hint liie mortgage debt is a major problem on the farm," the bureau said. Between 1530 and 1939 (lie total farm mortgage debt wns reduced from J9.6CO.OOO.DOO to $, a reduction of 25 per cent. This reduction, the bureau said, was almost entirely tire result of forced selling. Despite tins decrease in the total farm-mortgage debt, the bureau salt), (he smaller indebtedness still represented Ihe same percentage of the value ol nil farm lands mid buildings as at the start' of the decade. "In J910 the total fnrm-jnortgiige debt wns $3.200,000,000, or 9 percent of the total farm value of $35,000,000,000," the bureau announced, "At the farm-mortgage peak in 1923, the $10,800.000.000 debt represented 20 per cent of the lot?! value. Land Vjilucs Decrease "Last year the debt had been reduced Inrgcly through foreclosures lo $7,100,000,000. but because land values also declined, it stui represented 20 per cenl of the total value estimated nt $35,400,000,000." Jn 1033 when land property, values were at their depression Ion-.! the debt represented about 28 per | cent of the value of land and buildings. The bureau said the substantial decrease In distress transfers since 1933 is generally considered a factor strengthening the tone of the farm veal estate | market. • The fact that farm foreclosures I did not increase sharply during the ' 1937-38 recession was attributed to ' the larger holdings of mortgages by government lending agencies and extensive refinancing activities of Hie Fr.nn Credit Administration. In 1930 about 12 per cent of the total farm mortgage debt of the country wns held by federally sponsored agencies. Today almost •li) per cent of the total fnrm mortgage debt Is held by such agencies Most of this Increase hn since 1933. TAMPA, Pla.
