Production Credit Associa- tions of North Dakota have increas- ed their volume more than 50 per cent sh~ce 1957/Factors contribut- ing to the use of larger amounts of by farmer~ is largely due to ~ansioa ~f farm businesses. higher farm operadn~ eosis, sub- stitu~ion of labor by farmers ~r- ough use of modern machinery, and their families to improve their liv- ing ~ndards. This increased indebtedness taken on by agriculture nessitates a a great deal more financial plann- ing and management, coupled with income in line wH~h other segments of the economy. Andrew Lampen, l~reside~nt of the Federal Intermediate Credit Bank of St. Paul, in addressing the con- ference stated that "Production Credit Associations are meeting the challenge with types of credit that farmers need". The Federal In~ecuuediate Credit Bank of St Paul, an instiiution owned by the 54 Production Credit Associations in the states of Michigan, Wiscon- sinj/Mlnnesota, and Nozth Dakota, is the principal source of loan funds for such Associations.

The traffic safety committee of the North Dakota Bar Assn is sub- mitting to traffic court judges in ~he state a list of recommendations regarding average bonds and fines in traffic cases. The committee's aim is to ~)ro- mote greater uniformity in munici- pal and justice courts in penalties for traffic violations, plus increas- ed public respect for traffic laws and traffic courts. Police Magistrate David Kessler of Grand Forks served as general chairman. Police Magistrate Odin J Strandness of Fargo was of the subcommittee on the fines and bonds schedule. Strandness sent questionnaires to the city court officials throughout the state to ge~ a consensus re~ard- i~g fines imposed for each traffic violation. Results of the survey were tabu- lated by Strandness. who met with Justice of the Peace A. T. Hacken- ty States Atty. David Garcia of berg of Williston and Ramsey Coun- Devils Lake, other members of the subcommittee. The schedule was then submit- ted to the bar association's execu- tive committee, which approved it. "Judges in the state are urged to use the schedule," Strandness said. "We found quite a variance in fines, and we feel more uniform- ity will contribute to greater re- spect for traffic courts." One recommendation is that upon the first drunken driving conviction, two days of a 30-day jail sentence be served and the balance suspend- ed on good behawor. On subsequent convictions, a sen- tence of 30 or more days is suggest- ed. It is provided, too. that magis- trates recommend to the state sus- pension of drive*s license of offen- ders for 30 days or more with each conviction. The state, in all cases, decides whether a is to be suspended or revoked. The city court may re. yoke driving privileges within the city limits, if ordinances so specify. These recommendations, of course, are subject to city ordinance re- quirements or limitations. Maximum average fine is for drunken driving--$100---with $150 bond recommended and $200 bond if an accident is involved. For reckless driving, recommend. ed bond is $75 and the fine is $40. A bond of $100 is suggested where there is evidence of liquor or an accident is involved, and stiffer penalties are levied in those cases, according to the schedule. Another regarded as a major vio- lation is failure to stop at the scene of an accident. A $100 bond and a $50 fine are suggested. The bond of $50 is recommended for careless driving with accident involved, violation of traffic or pe- destrian right of way with accident involved, failure to exchange names and addresses at the scene of an accident, failure to report an acci- dent. possession of liquor by minors. and possession of open containers of intoxicants in vehicles. The suggested fine in each of these cases is $25. For driving without a drivers license, the suggested bond is $35 and the fine is $25. A bond is posted with the clerk of court or law enforcement authorit- ies after the citation to insure ap- pearance in court. It the fine is low- er than the amoun~ posted, part of the bond is then refunded. Other- wise the bond is forfeited. Strandness said most of the basic schedule provisions have been fol- lowed in Fargo Police Court. Money taken in by the traffic courts is turned over to the gen- eral fund of the city in Fargo, as well as in mos~ of the other cities, Strandness said.

Usually there is talk about buy- ing back the crop you grow aZ a fancy premium, but after the sale- man is gone and you read the fine print on the contract, you discover that he only has an option to buy back, and there is no g~mrantee that he will.
