Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 28, 1956, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NO R T H I O W A N S HOME EDITION Pftu United Pres Full wire Seven Copy Loans to Farmers Increase FHA Gives Helping Hand By WILLIAM EBERLINE DES MOINES A lot of Iowa farmers these days farm fiscal experts say are in much the same position as a city worker who is caught short before payday It isnt uncommon for the city worker in such circumstances to go to a friend and say Hey Joe lend me a fivespot until Satur And that in effect is what many farmers plagued by drought and caught in the hog price squeeze are saying when they go to their banks or the Farmers Home Ad ministration The State Banking Department says loans by Iowas 563 state chartered banks increased more than 75 million dollars in 1955 over MASON CITY JANUARY 28 Paper Consists of Two No H The Farmers Home Administra tion state office said it didnt have exact figures available as to the comparative number of loan appli cations in the first half of fiscal 195556 as compared with 195455 But it estimated the number was about the same though a higher percentage of loans were granted from July 1 to Jan 1 than inthe same period the year before Operating Capital Newton P Black state superin tendent of banking estimates that about 75 per cent of the increase in bank loans in 1955 is accounted for by farmers who needed operat ing capital And Kermit Hansen state direc tor of the FHA said virtually all the applications his agency had re ceived were for funds to permit farmers to get their operations un der way in 1956 To gojback to that city fellow for might find couldnt tencnhitarjLny motieV right Mv Washington state game department helicopter

idea is to draw the animals away from the Yakima Valley orchards and concentrate them where theyll be protected from winter storms This tnightv be becausejoe wouldnt have money to pay his own bills if he granted the loan or for any of several reasons Maybe Joe has had an unhappy experience with lending money to this fellow before Perhaps he has reason to believe hell never get his dough back Or maybe the request was for more than Joe feels he can lend Thats exactly the position the banks and the FHA sometimes find themselves in Theonly differ ence is that in many cases the lending agencies are required by law to take such a position and Joe isnt Commercial Rates Black agreed that commercial bank rates today make it almost prohibitive for a farmer to bor row operating funds at a bank But itisnt anything done by the banks in Iowa to crack down pn he explained Its be cause the Federal Reserve system raised the discount The discount rate is the amount charged by the Federal Reserve banks for advancing money on commercial paper Anincrease in the discount rate forces lending banks to raise their interest rates thus making loans more expensive for the borrower Hansen said the FHA so far has had money enough to handle all the proper loan applications it has received and he believes the agen cy can get as much more as nec But he added Sometimes farmers ask us to Demos Plan Race for Top Offices By DWIGHT McCORMACK DES MOINES one of the few times in many years there will be contests for Democratic nominations for almost all of the top off ices in Iowas 1956 primary election The reason

nations One is the continued oppo sition to More by one segment o the party The other is 5th Distric opposition to Clyde Herring over his election to the state committee in 1954 Filing Deadline do things we are prohibited from doing The biggest loan we can make is and we have to turn down applications for bigger Hansen explained that the only exception to this rule is that after an original loan has been made up to more can be advanced to the same person if some act of God such as a drought or other catastrophe wipes out the farmers crop and makes it impossible for him to pay his original loan on time Large Operator Sometimes we get a request usually from a large operator for more than and we have to turn it said We also are required to deny a loan if we know in advance that wont be enough to do the job the farmer wants to One interesting thing Hansen find Is that from July 1 until Christmas last year received almost no applications for loans But they really poured in after He attributed this to a wait see policy on the part of the Although the filing deadline still is two months away there have been announcements or expectec candidacies such as to cause con tests
