As chairman of the cam- paign, Dr. Keyser hopes all previous livestock and dairy exhibitors will want to be a part of this fine community effort to provide our coun youth with Some Encouraging Signs About Agriculture Revealed At Farm Credit Banks Meeting At Hershey1 In the midst of months d gloomy news about agriculture some encouraging signs were revealed recently in Hershey, Pa., at the annual conference of the Farm Credit Banks of Baltimore. Representing the Central Valley Production Credit and Federal Land Bank Associations at that conference were direc- tors, Hugh F. Dailey, Alfred L. Snapp, Paul L. Swecker, Howard A. Duncan, P. T. Mclntire, Charles W. Kackley, Edgar A. Leatherman, R. Eugene Blevins, and Edward W. Hepburn. What they heard was another success story for the area's largest argicultural lenders. Hugh F. Dailey, of Win- chester, chairman of the Beard of the three consolidated Farm CredR Banks in the Baltimore District, reported a profitable year. Dailey said that the three banks, The Federal Land Bank The Federal Intermediate Credit Bank and the Bank for Cooperatives totaled over 11 million dollars in net earnings for 1977. The three banks, covering Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Puerto Rico, now have over 1.5 billion dollars in loans out- standing. Although national news has, in recent months, focused on the plight of farmers, the Baltimore banks' report reflects a con- tinued sound financial base for agriculture in this area. In his message, President of the banks, Gene L. Swackhamer observed that, "Although some commodity prices have declined significantly, certain areas of our district suffered severe drought, and farm incomes have fallen, the quality of our credit remains good". Helping the delegates focus on the, "opportunities and dif- ficulties facing farmers and their cooperatives" were, ex- secretary of agriculture Erl Butz, Irving R. Levine from NBC News, and the Secretaries of Agriculture of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Virginia. Representing Virginia was S. Mason Carbaugh, Commissioner of Agriculture CONSOLIDATED REPORT OF CONDITION of BANK OF HARPERS FERRY of Harpers Ferry, Jefferson, West Virginia 25425.
