PAGE BIGHT FORGLOSURE HERE IS PUT UNDER NEW DEBT RELIEF LAW The first court receivership here tinder a law recently passed by the General Assembly has been ordered 'by Judge Davidson in a foreclosure suit brought by (ho Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. against Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Thornton. Mr. and Mrs. Thornton, through their attorneys, applied for a court receivership till March 1, 1935. The application Is in accordance with House File No. 193, entitled the Emergency Debtors' Ilcliet Act. The foreclosure suit, in which $12,084 was asked, with decree against the east CO acres of the 'Southwest, quarter of 13-99-31 and tho southwest fractional quarter of 18-99-30, will thus be held in abeyance nearly two years. Under the order entered by Judge -Davidson the Thorntons are to turn over to the clerk of the district court one-half of tho proceeds of all corn grown on the farm, loss cost of shelling and two- fifths of all small grain grown during the period the order is in force, plus Sli an acre cash for hay and pasture land. The order specifies that the clerk shall, out of tho receipts turned in 'by the Thorntons, first nay all taxes, then insurance, and. third, pay for all repair items costing less than $25. The balance, if any, is to bo applied on tho mort- j gage, less repairs costing more I than $25, if any, payment for which ; will require court approval. ' There in some divergence of opinion on whether the now law is of real benefit to tlio farmer. The property is under court rather than private receivership and the foreclosure is automatically hold up till 1935, .but nothing except' a return of good times can prevent foreclosure then.
