tary of the Treasury, taking into consideration the current average market yields of outstanding marketable obligations of the United States having maturities comparable to the notes issued by the Secretary under this title. The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to purchase any notes of the Secretary issued hereunder, and for that purpose the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to use as a public debt transaction the proceeds from the sale of any securities issued under the Second Liberty Bond Act, as amended, and the purposes for which such securities may be issued under such Act, as amended, are extended to include the purchase of notes issued by the Secretary. All redemptions, purchases, and sales by the Secretary of the Treasury of such notes shall be treated as public debt transactions of the United States. (c) The appropriations for loans made under the authority of subsection (a) and funds obtained in accordance with subsection (b) of this section, and the unexpended balances of any funds made available for loans under the item "Farmers Home Administration" in the Department of Agriculture Appropriation Acts current on the date of enactment of this title, shall be merged into a single account known as the "Farmers Home Administration direct loan account", hereafter in this section called the "direct loan account". All claims, notes, mortgages, property, including those now held by the Secretary on behalf of the Secretary of the Treasury, and all collections therefrom, made or held under the direct loan provisions of (1) titles I, II, and IV of the Bankhead-Jones F a r m Tenant Act, as amended; (2) the Farmers Home Administration Act of 1946, as amended, except the assets of the rural rehabilitation corporations; (3) the Act of August 28, 1937 (50 Stat. 869), as amended; (4) the item "Loans to Farmers—1948 Flood Damage" in the Act of June 25, 1948 (62 Stat. 1038); (5) the item "Loans to Farmers (Property Damage)" in the Act of May 24, 1949 (63 Stat. 82); (6) the Act of September 6, 1950 (64 Stat. 769); (7) the Act of July 11, 1956 (70 Stat. 525); and (8) under this title shall be held for and deposited in said account. The notes of the Secretary issued to the Secretary of the Treasury under said Acts or under this title and all other liabilities against the appropriations or assets in the direct loan account shall be liabilities of said account, and all other obligations against such appropriations or assets shall be obligations of said account. Moneys in the direct loan account shall also be available for interest and principal repayments on notes issued by the Secretary to the Secretary of the Treasury. Otherwise, the balances in said account shall remain available to the Secretary for direct loans under subtitles A and B of this title, and for advances in connection therewith, not to exceed any existing appropriation or authorization limitations and in such further amounts as the Congress from time to time determines in appropriation Acts. The amounts so authorized for loans and advances shall remain available until expended. Subject to the foregoing limitations, the use of collections dejx>sited in the account may be authorized by the Congress in lieu or partially in lieu of authorizing the issuing of additional notes by the Secretary to the Secretary of the Treasury, and the account shall be budgeted on a net expenditure basis. (d) The Secretary may sell and assign any notes and mortgages in the direct loan account with the consent of the borrower or without such consent when the borrower has failed to comply with his agreement to refinance the indebtedness at the request of the Secretary. Such loans may be sold at the balance due thereon or on such other basis as the Secretary may determine from time to time.
