United States with as little as 20% down and the balance of the purchase price can be paid off in a period running as long as three years. The liberalized terms, Mr Hall said, have been adopted to indicate the confidence of the Harvester Company and its dealers in the fundamental soundness of American agriculture and the fine credit record made by fann- ers over many years.
