-STATUTE-

The Secretary of Agriculture, hereinafter referred to as the

Secretary, is authorized and directed to compromise, adjust, or

cancel indebtedness arising from loans and payments made or credit

extended to farmers under the provisions of the several Acts of

Congress or programs enumerated in section 1150a of this title:

Provided, That the Secretary finds, after such investigation as he

deems sufficient to establish the facts, that (1) said indebtedness

has been due and payable for five years or more; (2) the debtor is

unable to pay said indebtedness in full and has no reasonable

prospect of being able to do so; (3) the debtor has acted in good

faith in an effort to meet his obligation; and (4) the principal

amount of said indebtedness is not in excess of $1,000. The

Secretary is further authorized at his discretion to cancel and

discharge indebtedness arising under said Acts of Congress or

programs when the amount of said indebtedness is less than $10, or

the debtor is deceased and there is no reasonable prospect of

recovering from his estate, or his whereabouts has remained unknown

for two years and there is no reasonable prospect of obtaining

collection, or he has been discharged of the indebtedness in any

proceeding under the Bankruptcy Act or under title 11. The

compromises, adjustments, or cancelations (FOOTNOTE 1) authorized

by this section shall be effected through such agencies, upon such

terms and conditions, and subject to such regulations, as the

Secretary may prescribe, and the Secretary may delegate the

exercise of any such powers and functions to such officers or

employees of the Department of Agriculture as he may designate.

(FOOTNOTE 1) So in original. Probably should be

''cancellations''.
