For years we have done a credit business and that is very fine when the Iowa Farmer is getting good prices for his farm products. However, credit extension at the present time is extremely hazardous and while we will not entirely at this time abandon doing some credit business, it will be only on approved risks for no longer time than 30 days. Coal will be held to cash as in the past. This you will agree is good business. What the business world needs today is good old-fashioned honesty and integrity.
