If the farmers are not closed out by more prosperous neighbors, they said, they soon will TO come into their own. These men attribute much of the trouble that has arleen in country banks to the fact that there have been too many banks. The banks and the people, they said, have seen situation In its true light, and, as a result, voluntary liquidation and consolidation has done away with many weak banks. Mr. Barr credited the improving condition today to the success of the 1927 crops, and to a determination on the part of the farmer to economize and to pay off his obligations.

"The pollcy of this department never has been and never will be to oppress the farmer who owes money as long as his affairs are in such condition that he has a sibility of liquidating hig obligations," Mr. Barr said. "The department always ha on all debts being paid that can be paid, but we never have encouraged a bank to close out a farmer who is doing the beat he can, And who bas a possibility of liquidatIng."
