loans and the supply of money available for loans n Iowa are pretty well in balance The Federal Reserve System recently lowered the rediscount rate from 2Vi to cent The rediscount rate is the interest commercial banks must pay when they borrow money on commercial paper from a Federal Reserve bank ROBERT GOODWIN chairman of the board of the Central National Bank in Des Moines said this has had some psychological effect on borrowers and bankers alike but he doubts that it has pulled interest on bank loans down very much Most people coming in to apply for loans now feel that they should pay a little less interest on their loan Goodwin said But I think most bankers are guided by the type of security offered the type of loan length of the loan period andlike factors Norman Bel Geddes Dies at
