Schinnow Services Held Rites Conducted at Local Funeral Home New Plan Eases Farm Purchase Congress Raises Rate of Mortgage Interest Washington. (U.R)—The agriculture department said Monday that changes made by congress in the government's farm mortgage program should make it easier to buy farms. Under the old program, the department had been insuring loans to those who could not obtain any other type of financing. The money could, be used to buy or improve a farm. The farmer had 40 years to repay the loan, with 2-£ per cent interest. One of the difficulties had been that banks were not eager to tie up their money for so long. Also it has been hard for veterans and others to find farms for sale at prices satisfactory to lenders and insurers. To encourage banks to lend money, congress raised the interest rate to 3 per cent. It also provided that the government could buy the mortgages from the banks after they had been held a certain period. The agriculture department is to determine what this length of time will be.
