The legislation was proposed in the Wake of a serious credit crunch in much of Rural America and Iowa senator Dick Clark heard about the problem during two Days of Senate agriculture committee Field hearings in Iowa last month the thrust of the proposed Bill Clark said is to increase the loan limit on Farmers Home administration farm ownership Loans from $100,000 to $200,000, and to increase the limit on farm operating Loans from $50,000 to $100,000 for direct Loans and to $200,000 for guaranteed Loans. Many Farmers arc in a weakened financial position right now because of Low Grain and livestock prices and because of losses Rock Valley parents fear a less of Pilot son in Alaska a Rock Valley couple is presuming that their son has lost his life in the wilds of Alaska the result of an apparent air plane Accident. The reverend John engbers of Rock Valley said that the family of Russ Santema 21 i divulged their fears to the minister concerning their Pilot son. Russ Santema with Munz airlines of Alaska was flying freight to villages above the Arctic Circle he has been missing since nov 21. Searchers acting on their own continue to scan tie area but with no results. Santema was reported missing nov. 21, when he failed to return to Kotzebue from Point Hope Alaska. He was flying a 16 passenger twin engine aircraft which was hauling supplies. Authorities said the weather was Clear at that time along with 150 mile route. There was one passenger on the Craft. The Rev. Engbers the Santema s minister said Thi Pilot s father John Santema was in Alaska during a search last week. According to reports the bearing sea is still open and the fear is that the aircraft May have gone into it. No Trace thus far has been found along the land route. The search has been extensive. At one time 40 planes participated in the air search while snowmobiles and volunteers on foot searched the ground area around Point Hope. The Faa said it had conducted a six Day air search after Santema was reported missing. The government search sources said has ended private pilots however Are continuing to comb the Vicinity. Social Security in county social Security benefits were being paid to residents of Sioux county at the rate of $185.00 a month at the Start of 1977, Robert l. Andersen social Security manager in Sioux City said today. Suffered from the drought. That Means loan repayment difficulties and Large increases in farm lending producing Sharp reductions in the liquidity of Many Banks serving agricultural areas. When Farmers stored their 1976 crop Grain Clark pointed out the asset was carried on the balance sheets at Well above $2-a-Bushel, and the Cash flow projections of farms also priced Corn at More than $2. But now Bankers Are forced to require their borrowers to reflect the Sharp decline in the value of the Corn on their financial statements. In Many cases we Learned that Farmers Are being asked to increase their borrowing on their land in order to finance their production the Iowa senator told the news. Federal Reserve Board statistics provide More evidence of the credit crunch. In january 1976, less than one third of the Banks in the Minneapolis Federal Reserve District reported a Shower rate of the farm loan repayments by october 1978, however nearly three fourths of the Banks in the District reported that farm loan repayments were slower. Demand for More credit by Farmers appears to be straining the capacity of the lending institutions. In Iowa Federal land Bank Loans outstanding increased by 23 percent during the first nine months of 1977, and production credit Loans outstanding increased about 21 percent in the same period. Over the years a set of institutions has been developed to provide agricultural credit. From the hearing i think we can see that some changes Are probably needed in the Way these institutions work so that their services can be improved and the credit needs of Farmers More adequately served Clark said.
