Side 139 - Federal intermediate credit bank, with its indorsement, any note, draft, bill of exchange, debenture, or other such obligation the proceeds of which have been advanced or used in the first instance for any agricultural purpose or for the raising, breeding, fattening, or marketing of live stock...

In a world where there are tens of millions who need food and clothing which they can...
Side 111 - My own conviction has long been that the land question far transcends any restricted field of economics, and that it is fundamental to national survival and national welfare. It is truly a problem calling for statesmanship of the broadest type.
