Farm Housing Loan Program Progressing 0 Berkeley, Jefferson The farm housing loan pro- gram of Farmers Home Adminis- tration is picking up momentum, not only throughout the Nation, but here in Berkley and Jeffer- son counties. That's the word from Robert L. McKown, county supervisor in charge of the agency's lending program locally. He said this re- newel farm housing loan activity follows the early February an- nouncement that an additional $50 million is now available to the Farmers Home Administrat- ion for its 4 percent loans to farm owners to build or repair farm houses and essential farm build- ings. Such a loan may extend over a 33year period. The new loan money broke up a log jam of .applications that were being held because funds had been exhausted. Nationwide, loans are now being processed at the rate of about $5 million a month, but indications point to a probable doubling of that pace. In this area McKown said he looks for the main demand to con tinue to be for loans for new con struction, although farm owners J may need the credit to repair or remodel dwellings, put in modern Well feathered nests don't grow on trees. They have to be built! Foresighted people do most of their "nest- building" in their savings accounts. Your idea of a "well feathered nest" may be anything from a by home of your own to financial security for your later years. But whatever it is, the best and surest way to build it is by systematic saving here. Time to start building is now! For.Friendly Help with All Your Banldng Needs, you can depend on us.
