Loan association Jiving in Ames and stveral hundred more living elsewhere. For them and for other* who may be Interested In knowing more about the affairs of the Insti- tutlon, th» following address delivered by Dr. I. E. Mslhus, vies president of the association, before tht mas* meeting of business men and building tradesmen at tht Twin Star theater, Thursday night, Is deemed of sufficient general interest to warrant publication in full. I regret very much that Mr. A. H. Munn, president of our building and loan association, is unable to be here tonight He has given freely and untiringly of his keen business ability in planning the future service of the Ames Build- Ing and Loan association for this community. In his absence, I shall try to .fell you what the association is prepare! to do to help bring greater prosperity to Ames. Prosperity will never return as long as our, people are idle. A big factor in the unemployment situation in Ames has been the slump in building activity. A resumption of this activity will be a big factor in the recovery program. Ames has 'not suffered because of idle factories or mines. This is not an industrial city. True, there.have been salary, cuts at Iowa State college and the istate highway commission. A few have been laid off. But in the main, it Is those who depend upon . the building trades who have been hard hit Hard times for them means hard times on Main street, and for the whole town. Many Repairs Needed During the past few years, hundreds of homes in Ames have been allowed to "run down." There is need for repairs, paint, roofs, furnaces, eavespoutg and remodeling. These "home owners — and those who wish to build — would like to take advantage of today's low material prices. They have not done so because of the lack of available capital for home financing. The firms who have sponsored . this meeting realize that any revival of building, any repairing or remodeling is dependent upon adequate capital. You men who depend upon home construction and improvement for a livelihood are as much interested as the material men in this question of financing. .•A few years back, money for home financing came from four principal sources: banks, private loans, insurance companies, and the Ames Building and Loan association. Today, and probably for some time to come, private individuals, the banks and insurance companies are out gage loan market of the^mort- Their assets NBA TAKES POOR LITTLE CHORINES (Continued fjom Page One) writes "This, production: of 'drums in your ears'.needs only competent actors, adequate scenery, better lines and decent lighting to make it thrilling, beautiful and impres sive," he won't be quoted in the' "advertisement next day as having said "This production of 'drums in your ears'... .thrilling,. beautiful and impressive." Authors also will hail the code because it provides that as soon as'their play is accepted' for production, the producer must hand offer |500. If the plan runs more than three weeks, the $500 will be accepted as advance in royalties. If it runs less.than three weeks the author keeps the $500 but allows the producer to weep on his shoulder. Finally, the dear old public comes .in for recognition after all these years. The code provides that producers must keep "a fair percentage of their seats in all parts of the house for sale to the public." That will be quite a blow at the box office men who have become accustomed to telling you that "there's nothing left but two seats behind a post in the ISth row, $5.50 each and take -it or leave it." AMES MERCHANTS ON 52-HOUR WEEK (Continued from Page One) that the new hours will be a very real help to the employment situation in Ames without working undue hardships on the merchants. It was pointed out by a number of the merchants that considerable help would have to be on duty beyond the 52 business hours in order to perform many essential duties of storekeeplng, sach as receiving and opening shipments, marking goods and stocking shelves. Those present at the meeting felt sure that their customers would enter into the spirit of the situation and . *x>mptly adjust their shopping hours to those of the agreement. L. E. Hedrick. secretary of the Ames Associated Retailers, presided over the conference. Mayor Schleiter was present to open the meeting, but had to leave to attend another meeting. Ames barbers reached an agreement early this week to observe the same closing hours which the retail merchants were expected to adopt. Announcement of the agree, roent on a schedule reached by the merchants, Friday night. The bar- >ers also are uniting In a state wide movement to organize under he national barbers association, and thereby come under the special code to be adopted for barbers hruout the nation with deadly poi- ntulM, insects onous powers. Tho largest he r caught had a leg spread of inches. are frozen; they are working hard to get out, and we sincerely hope they can. i have been told that the Glass banking act will prohibit banks of the federal reserve system from making mortgage loans. The insurance companies still have other worries, and private money loosens slowly. Of Public Interest Your building and loan association is turning the corner, thru the powerful backing of the federal home loan bank. I call this to your attention because I want you to realize that the continued success of-the Ames Building and Loan association concerns you, whether you are a shareholder or not It concerns the business Interests of the town; it concerns every public-spirited citizen. Let me tell you what the association has meant to Ames in the past, before I tell you what you may expect of it in the future. In the years from 1928 to 1931. the association, loaned probably as much as all other mortgage loan agencies in Ames combined. The association made 176 loans for new construction, totaling $595,000. I have been told that approximately 50 per cent of the cost of construction Is for labor. On the average, the mortgage on a house Is for 50 per cent of its value. Therefore, i believe that $500,000 of the money advanced by the association In those four years represented wages, and that an equal amount was put up by various borrowers for material. Did this mean anything to 'Ames? I think you will agree it did. Jobs Follow Capital What about, the futuie? There will be jobs, wages and an im- provsn/ent in business, if capital can be supplied to finance much needed repairs, modernizing and remodeling. This capital Is coming from the Ames Building and Loan association. Thru its membership the federal home loan bank, the association is in a position to supply funds for home financing needs of this community, In times iike these when funds from investors comes in, slowly. Last February, when things look, ed darkest in Ames, the board of directors of the Ames Building and Loan association established a credit with the federal home loan bank, a credit to be used for making mortgage loans when con- ditio»s became improved. That time is here. The" Ames Building and Loan association is announcing tonight that it is in the market for conservative loans that will put men back to work. We are interested in loans that will repair, remodel and modernize our homes, because such money will create the most labor. We are hot interested In refinancing existing mortgages. That remains as our next step. Conservative Policy It should be made clear In connection with this aanouncement that the association expects to follow a conservative policy. Loans for remodeling and repair will be made only where the security Is gilt edged. Anxious M we are to promote business activity, wo do not propose v> place .ny money without sufficient upcurlty, coupled with sufficient, earning capacity OH j the part of the mortgagee to meet regularly the monthly payments on the Interest and principal. Our first resjH>nblbllity as *n association, is to safeguard the Investor, and as we succeed In doing this we will succeed in help- Ing the borrower. . In the past, this community has largely financed its own building program. It will have to do so in the future. And fhere ic no valid reason why it cannot do so today. The association established, its credit with the nome loan bank five months ago. It Is only today entering the mortgage loan market* because its directors and officers feel that the situation in respect to new investment money is improving, it is also inaugurating a campaign to increase receipts from Investors, policy will be Its future determined loan to a great extent by the response to this campaign. Confidence Inspire* Growth In the past, this mon«y which helped create employment and business and good times in Ames was accumulated by the association in the form of the savings and investment* of thrifty Ames people. The association in turn was able to make these loans, if investing shareholders put more money in than other shareholders withdraw. the association can loan the surplus and the association grows. If the repayments on our present mortgages could b« reinvested, that is, uwd for malting, new loans, they would be sufficient to supply all the capital needed in this community for new construction and repairs for many years to come. * But for some time, it has been newssary to use the repayments on mortgage loans to pay withdrawing members. Receipts from Investors practically stopped. lu- vestors had to waft for their money,, and this resulted. in a distorted public sentiment, which tended still further to discourage new investment money. A Vicious Circle Thus was created a vicious circle which not only hampered the association and proVed unsatisfactory to its withdrawing members, but kept and is still keeping men out of work,,. It has hurt you. Happily, there' are indications that this situation is drawing to a dose. Business is still far from normal, but we are satisfied that a turning point has been reached. Increased receipts, from investors, new accounts, some for sizeable amounts. #ive evidence of faith and confidepce in this situation. Actually, our difficulty has been subnormal receipts, -rather than an abnormal demand for money, and i am proud to acknowledge the many evidences of loyalt.- on the part of our shareholders. For the most part, they have confined their requests amounts they for funds to the actually needed. They have not been swayed by vn- founded rumor or idle gossip. Those who have requests for funds on file today, could be paid in full in 30 days if receipts from Investors were normal. No great amount of monthly income would be required to put us quickly back on a normal schedule of operation. Operating Principle I want you to understand thor- oly the operating principles of an association such as ours. Let us suppose that you and 99 others organized a building and loan association, and each of you subscribe for $100 in stock. You then have $10,000. You are all partners in a mutual enterprise, to share-equally in the profits and losses. You invest $9,000 in well secured monthly , payment first mortgages, and keep $1,000 cash on hand. Some member withdraws $100. A little later, a new member joins the association, and puts in $100. This goes on, some putting In money and some withdrawing money from the $1,000 cash on Land. The $9,000 is invested and is safe, but is only repaid in fractional installments each month. Now suppose that 11 members decide they want their money. One of them is asked to wait. In a short time he will receive his money, 100 cents on the dollar. A Normal Condition If none of the other 89 members in this imaginary association ask for their money, the cash reserve will quickly build up from the repayments by borrowers. New members will replace those who withdrew. But suppose 10 more members ask for their money, and are asked to wait. What happens'. One or two are inconvenienced and a little disgruntled. So they go out and broadcast their grievance. And their neighbor, who was thinking of investing $1,000 decides that maybe he had better put it in postal savings, after all. This state of affairs prevents your association from making new loans and keeping the laboring man working. . Funds with which to meet withdrawals must come from Incoming shareholders, or additional shares' issued to old shareholders. This Is true of every other form of Investment You can only get your money out of a liberty bond because some other investor wants it. The government doesn't redeem those bonds until the date called for in the bond. .One of our first mortgage loans Is paid out gradually over a period of 11 years. It is similar to a liberty bond. Expose Hiding frollar* It is high time that money be brot out of hiding and out of postal savings and put to work in Ames. Did you ever stop to consider that the investment losses of Ames people have been outside of Ames? The place for Ames money jis at home, where it will create work. ,- Money invested in the Ames Building and Loan association stays at home and works at home, and the whole community benefits. Unemployed dollars mean un- employt d men. The Ames Building and Loan association is ready to help bring back the clatter ot the carpenter's hammer and the swish of the painter's brash, and all other welcome sounds that mean men are at work, and recelv. ing pay checks every Saturday. . - - - $ - ; _ Auto Crashes Topic at Kiwanis Luncheon John Dunn, president of the Employers Mutual Casualty company, Des Moines, and a Kiwanian, addressed the Ames Kiwanis club on the subject "Auto Accidents," at the weekly luncheon of the club in the Sheldon-Munn hotel, Friday noon. ,, Mr. Dunn presented statistics showing the tremendous toll of life and limb thru auto accidents. H» said a new word "autocide," was rapidly coming into general use. The speaker said he felt that patrolled highways would tend to reduce accidents in Iowa. Moon Cat Light Bill FORT WORTH, Tex.
