Since the government has now
gone into the loan business, in
direct competition with local banks,
through the Farm Credit Associ-
ation, these institutions will soon
become mendlums for change and
deposit only. There must be some
revenue for ev?ry business or it
cannot exist—many are asking what
its going to be In this case?—Rich-
ardson. Echo. .
Editor Sam Harben of the Rich-
ardson Echo, is correct in the a-
bove. But, now farmers and others
must have money to transact bus
iness. and many local banks have
almost stopped loaning money,
what are the borrowers of money
to do. The Central Bank Heads
have advised the small banks to
loan no money, even at TEN PER
CENT, while they are putting it
out, through the government, at
LESS THAN HALF THAT RATE
of interest. What the Central
Banks are after is to stop most all
loans being done by the small
banks, and let this business come
through them, in order that they
will get the interest, and cripple,
discourage and finally kill or put
the little banks out of business.
That is why the smaller banks
were ordered, through the bank
code, to make a charge on all
accounts. To make a charge of
fifty cents on all accounts started,
to charge 3 cents on each cheek
give over a certain amount they
carry in the bank, when the de-
posit was low. also to make a
