1 The report of tho-comptroller of th 1 ^
currency for the year 1915 comnlns 3
a story of how the state of Okla
bom a has been changed from a stato j
of homestead farmers Into a stat*
of Impoverished tenants by the ex-
tortion of the hanks. The report
shows how men who had secured a
homestead of 160 acres, who we re-
filled with hope for themselves nnd
their families, had lost their farm
through usury and mortgage fore
closure. It describes how these
farmers In need of a small lean
with which to get started had o
pay interest rates often as high as
fifc per cent and sometimes 100 per
cent per annum. There waa no one
j to whom they could go except the
han^r. The banker made his own
ternm. A note was made out at
usurious interest and a mortgage
was taken on the farm. If the farm-
er had a good crop and waa able to
| pay when the note fell due. the bank-
er encouraged him to keep th"
money. He permitted the loan to
run on. If, however, the farmer had
a bad season, the banker demanded
payment, or ns a favor to the farm-
er he permitted the loan to stand

and interest Increased in amount
from season to season; of how th
farmer was often caughf by a bad j
season and compelled to accept any
terms the banker Imposed. Finally
the farmer Is driven to desperation
to meet his usurious payments, llo

to whom he must brine practically
everything he produces. He takes

by the worker, by the co-operative

The first necessity Is for these
classes to realize their helplessness
and the necessity for action. < on-
gress an dour states could relieve
this situation, but congress and our
state legislatures are either con-
trolled by or are responsive to the
banking Interests. Hundreds of men
have been before congressional com-
mittees urging peoples' banks, such
ag exist all over Europe. But con-
gress has turned a deaf ear to their
appeals. Just a: congress has turned
a deaf ear to the railway workers
the shippers, ind tbe producers on
the railroad bill. Congress will re-
spond to the producing classes when
congrees contains 200 representa-
tives of the workers and the farmers.
It will then break the monopoly or
Wall Street and the dlshoueset use
of the people's money for the ex-
ploitation Of the people.
In tbe meantime there Is a way
out through co-operation. Ranking
and credit agencies can be organized
under existing state laws or under
the national bank act as described
in a previous article. And such banke
are being organized In different
parts of the country. They are be-
ing organized in Seattle, they are be-
in^ organized by the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, by the Amal-
gamated Clothing Workers of Amer-
ica. In addition, credit unions, or I
little people's banks are being j
formed in nine states to aid the
farmer of small means and the I
I worker. These particular banks will
be described in the next article,
i Committee on Co-operative Banking
and Credit to Promote .New Banks.
The committee on banking and .
credit of the ail-American farmer-
labor congress was instructed to I
promote co-operative banks and
credit unions. Mr. Warren S. Stone,
grand chief of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, is chairman
of the committee. The other mem
bers are George P. Hampton, Sidney
HiUman, ('. H. Gustavson and Frank
A. Rust. The executive secretary of
this committee Is Frederic C. Howe,
and the addreBS of its offices is Ma-
chinists building. Washington, L>.
The committee is ready to aid in-
dividuals and groups in the forma-
tion of co-operative banks and
credit unions. It will provide infor-
mation and Resistance. It plans to
print pamphlets and distribute infor-
mation. The first great need of the
co-operative movement, as well as of
the people generally, as the Chicago
congress said, are banking and credit
agencies, owned and controlled by
the workers and farmers themselves.
