Loans made so far this year, plus those being pro- cessed, had practically exhausted the funds previously available. Farm housing loans are made throughout the rural areas of the United States and provide farm families with an opportunity to acquire an adequate house and efficient farm service buildings. Applications for farm housing loans may be made at the local office of the Farmers Home Ad- ministration, McKown explained. These loans bear 4 percent inter- est and are repayable over per- iods up to 33 years. The major demand in Berkeley and Jefferson counties, the area served by the Martinsburg office is for loans to construct and mod. ernize farm houses, and most of the funds are used for new con- struction. Improvements financed with loans include the installat- ion of central heating, pressure water supply systems, the addit- ion of bathrooms and the modern ization of kitchens. Local farmers have also used the loans to adjust their service buildings to the changing requirements of agric- ulture. A frequent example of WILL THE POSTMAN RING TWICE?

To be eligible for housing as- sistance a farmer must own a farm that will annually produce for sale or home'use at least $400 worth of commodities based on 1944 prices and be of sufficient value to adequately secure the loan. In addition, he must lack the resources needed to obtain adequate credit elsewhere and have sufficient income to pay farm operating and family living expense and meet payments when due on his debts.
