A 3RIEF STUDY of the table on the right will show you how easily you may become the owner of a fine Opportunity Farm. After the down payment has been m^de, you figure 6% yearly on the balance. This sum is payable each year—and it covers both interest and payment on the principal. Opportunity Farms are real values recognized by experienced farmers who know farms. Proof of this lies in the fact that thousands who have bought Opportunity Farms are paying the balance they owe faster than their contracts require, and are doing so out of current earnings. The ability to purchase farms on such favorable terms may not always, be available. Why wait longer to own the farm'you have always wanted? Consult your Opportunity Farm agent today ... and see how easily you can share in these excellent farm values. WHAT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FARM? An Opportunity Farm, to earn that name, must have adequate, sound, well-painted, weather - tight build- ln|t«; Improved soil, with good draln- afte, and expertly planned crop rotation.
