Martin, secretary of the National Farm Loan Association of Osceola, have returned from a meeting of f stockholders of the Federal Land ABank of St, Louis, held in St. Louis ^Thursday and Friday of last week. The two Mississippi County representatives met with leaders in the 101 other co-operative farm loan associations In Arkansas. Missouri and Illinois who are served by the St. Louis bank. The Mississippi County unit has its headquarters in Oseeola. The delegiues neard discussions of the vast changes which have taken place in the farm loan field since the cooperative land bank system pioneered with long-term, lo' loans 30 years ago. They also heard the Imure of all cooperative in America described as defending upon "the survival of the American system of free enterprise." Dangers of over-lending in boom times were pointed outC and delegates were advised lo stick to (he traditional land bank polU-y of basing loans on the "normal" Income- proiliicrlng power of the fiirin unit. Major contributions by the hind bank system, in its 30-year history, to the stability of American agriculture were listed as; (1) Pioneering the Ions-term, lovv- ^inlcrcst farm loan, enabling more Viarms to pay for their homes; 12) "Standing by" fanners riurinj depression years. (3) Establishing normal earning power of the land as a basis for loans, rather than following the ups and downs of the real estate market. It, was pointed out that the nation's entire Federal land bank system is completely owned by the farmers who borrow from it. The Federal Land Bank of St. Louis. Missouri, and affiliated National Farm Loan Associations in Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas were organized in 1917.
