McDonal'd secured approval for the largest amout of farm loan that we have heard of during the depression. The loan was made by the Federal Land Bank of Omaha which McDonald represents and was an average farm of 160 acres in Rlv- •erdale township on which a loan of $15,000.00 was approved at 4 Mi per cent interest for a long term of years. It does look as though loan companies were looking with more favor on farm loans and it must follow that they consider farm values as greater than in the past three years. y&axwxoK^^ CRESCO NEWS driveway is EASY on tires" "Now it's no trick to drive 'he cat In and out of the garage whenever we wish. - Remember how the rains and snow used to turn the road into • sea of mud?
