February 28, 1935

Mr. SPOTTON:

Well, where were the

farmers to turn? No other organization was loaning money and to scores of my farmers who are in danger of being driven off their farms, I am going to say to them, as I wire them weekly: Take advantage of the Farmers' Creditors Arrangement Act; that will hold you secure until the federal farm loan act is in operation and you will be able to hang on to the old homestead. The Hepburn administration has not been granting any new loans in the county of Huron. They may have done so in Frontenac, where they did some very cruel things, but they have not done it in the constituency I represent.
