Merlon Furry in Farewell Talk
'tells How It Fan Reg
Many Already Ask Loans
Asserting that the new federal In- ,
termediate credits hank spells pros
perity for the farmer, and urging the
establishment of licensed warehouses
under government supervision as a
marketing medium. Merton h. Corey 1
made his farewell address to Omaha 1
business men at a public affairs lunch
eon in the Chamber of Commerce din
ing room Thursday.
Mr. Corey, who has been general
attorney for the Federal Land hank
here, was appointed a member ot the
farm loan board, with headquarters
ai Washington. Ho will leave for
Washington on Tuesday.
"If Omaha prospers and fills its
place in the world, it must come to
realize that its prosperity depends on
the farmer, and that of the agricul
tural wealth of the country 20 per
ient is represented in the territory
•erved by the local federal land bank,"
Speaking of the new credits bank,
he said he had been uncertain how
much of a demand there would be for ,
loans, but that since early in March
more than 1.000,000 applications for,
loans had been made.
More Than Credits Needed.
"It was realized that the farmer did
rot need credits alone," he continued,
leferring to the organization of the
bank. "He needed also a broadening
of his market and a fair price for
his products. The law will do for the
farmer what the federal reserve bank (
-\stem lias done for hanks in the1
He called attention to the period
of depression some months ago in
which tho federal reserve hanks call- j
ed on the country banks to take up j
obligations, which call was passed on
10 producers, who, in order to liqui
date, rushed their products to mar
ket and glutted it, with resultant
He pointed out that banks'-oiday
are prepared to take care of concerns
with a 30-day, 60-day or 90-day turn- j
over, but that the farmer needs at
least a yearly turnover plan in his
Mr. Corey said the Intermediate1
Credits bank would givo the farmer
• redit up to three years. Twelve
banks throughout tho country, he
pointed out, will offer a capital of
1*60.000,000 to tho farmers of the
L'nlted States and have power to is
sue debentures of $600,000,000.
Direct Loans to Groups.
Loans will bo made directly to two
groups—co-operative marketing asso
ciations. secured by warehouse re
• eipts. and co-operative livestock as-'
sociations, secured in usual middle
"What the demand for loans will
be, l cannot say." he declared, ‘’but
if tlie rural banks call for credit, then
the need will hate been demonstrated;
if not, then the bank will be ready to
serve in an emergency.
"From 75 to SO per cent of tho liar
test throughout the big grain coun
try is marketed within 90 days, and
naturally gluts the market.- New
• reditw bank will give the farmer a
chance to market in an orderly
process, feeding out bis crop as fast
as the market can absorb it. The pos
sibilities of this are tremendous.
"I fervently hope there will be .
changes in laws ami that the farmers
and other agencies will lend their
help toward establishing licensed
warehouses under federal supervision,
in which the farmer can store his
crop until the market can handle it."
John L. ennedy, president of the
1’nited Ht.Uts National bank, pre
sided at the meeting, He referred to
^ t lie death of Chris ,\I Orucnther, sec
’s- ” relary of the Federal Land ^ank, arid
declared that “no man made more
friends in a shorter period of time."

The exchange also postponed until
2:15 next Monday the date for the
delivery on Tuesday's transactions,
thus giving sellers of stock coming
from distant points time to obtain the
same for purposes of delivery.
This postponment is believed to
have been seized upon by shorts as
an ©pportmrtty to purchase stock* to
cover their commitment* from source*

A hectic day it was. With 15 de

documents to handle, A. W. Jeffens.

with an "If the court please, I can't
