A Good Substitute The pro|x>sal for food loans lo drouth stricken farmers of Arkansas ;nul oth:r states has bcc'n kille:! by gentlemen in Washington who sue no inconsistency in supplying it .starving man with hay and fertilizer. That menus more work for th? Red Cross ami a more difficult farm rniaiip- i;ig problem. It would he a mislake to think, however, that il leaves a liope- lesi situation. An excellent substitute for th: food loan provision of the drouth relief liil! is contained in Senator Robinson's bill to provide federal assistance in the organization of agricultural credit corporations. Such corporations can and do make loans for food as w;ll as feed, and if the government, as Senator Robinson proiwses, will loan the money for their capital slock, they can go a long way toward meeting tile present emergency. Under the agricultural credit act papers of agricultural credit corporations may be discounted -by intermediate credit banks to approximately seven times tbe capital stock. In oth'r words a §50,000 agricultural credit corporation can make loans of approximately §350,000. Senator Hobinson proiwsus a §3,000,000 appropriation to be used in supplying the capital stock of such corporations. Success 1 of his measure would make available over $20,000,000 worth of cr'dit to fanners unable lo take advantage of drouth relief loans confined to feed, seed and fertilizer. 'W;e only criticism thai we can offer is that the amount is inaduinale, but if it is the best that can be had it is a whole lot better than nothing. But '. prompt action flioukl bo taken.
