ler of currency lias also called for na-
tional bank statements for the same
I4I thought a few weeks ago that the
coming statement would show an in-
crease in haul: deposits," said Mr.
Albaugh, "but I have changed my
mind. In my opinion the deposits will
show a slight decrease. The crops
have not been moving to market as
fast ns they should, and besides the
farmers are investing their money."
"Kansas farm land is on a boom
now," said Secretary of State Burrow,
who is a banker at Smith Center.
"Farmers aro putting much of their
surplus cash in land. This, of course,
will decrease deposits. Laud prices are
already out of proportion.
"People are basing values on the
crop of this year, a big one. This is a
mistake. We cannot have such good
crops every year. In fact, we never
had such a good crop before in our
section of tiie state.
"Land values should be based 011 the
crops of five to seven successive years.
That's the way to determine what land
is worth. If property is bought on
that basis it is sure to net returns.
"The present boom will not leave
people stranded like the boom of the
early '90s. Then people only paid a
small part down and gave mortgages
for the rest. When the collapse came
they lost what they put in in cash, lo>t
their laud ar.d had excess judgments
hanging over their heads.
"Farmers now pay cash for their
land. When the decline does come
they will have no mortgage or judg-
ments hanging over them. They sim-
ply will be out the difference between
what tho land actually is worth, based
on crop values of a period of years and
what they paid for it."
