Stanton, REAP funds available for projects The director of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has urged state fann- ers in need of new or improved pollution controls for animal facilities to take advantage of reinstated funds now available to farmers through the federal Rural Environmental Assistance Program (REAP). Grant J. Merritt said he was pleased that the funds, impounded by President Nixon in December, 1972, have been reinstated as the result of a court order. Under the program, REAP will pay up to 80 per cent for a pollution controlproject costing up to $2,500. Farmers may claim a 10 per cent state (ax credit on the remaining 20 per cent of costs which they must pay. The REAP funds are aOailable through the remainder of 1974 and are available for projects "substantially completed" by the end of the year. The funds are administered by County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service offices. Merritt urgsd farmers in need of funds for detailed information. For information on MPCA regulations governing animal facilities, farmers may contact Jim Bosch at MPCA headquarters in Roseville (612) 296-7327, or district MPCA offices in Duluth, Rochester, Brainerd, Fergus Falls, and Marshall. county court with driving while intoxicated.

Dean III, might reveal a certain bugging. Nixon said "I feel uneasy" that Dean might "go popping off about everything else that is done in the government, you know, the bugging of the ...." But the transcript of a meeting among Nixon, 'John D. Ehrlichman and H. R. Haldeman doesn't identify the site of the eavesdropping effort. Guaranteed loans by banks and other lending agencies are a new source of credit for farmers who cannot otherwise find financial assistance, Gordon Klenk, Farmers Home Administration state director for Minnesota, said today. ''Farmers Home Administration is already offering borrowers insured loans and- loans' "in which private lenders and Farmers Home Administration participate. We are now adding guaranteed farm loans made by banks and other' .nding agencies," Klenk explained. Farmers who need credit can apply for loans either through the Farmers Home Administration or through banks, Federal Land Banks, coop, insurance companies or other private sources of financing. The lending organization makes and services the loan. Farmers Home Administration will repay private lending institutions up to 90 percent of any loss on a guaranteed loan, but not more than 90 percent of the original principal. Farmers Home also pays the bank the difference between the borrower's interest rate and the current Farmers Home Administration guaranteed rate of 9 percent for emergency and operating loans and 8 percent for farm ownership, soil and water and recreation loans. Lenders pay Farmers Home Administration a fee for each loan guaranteed. Farmers Home Administration borrowers are now paying 5 percent interest for farm ownership, emergency, soil and water and recreation loans. The interest rate for operating loans is 6^4 percent. Klenk also indicated that a recent ruling from the Office of the Comptroller General, Washington, D.C. was good news for national banks that participate in the Farmers Home Administration guaranteed program. "The ruling provides that only the non-guaranteed part of any loan is charged against the bank's lending limit," he said. "This means that, if 90 per cent of a $75,000 farm ownership loan is guaranteed, only $7,500 of that loan will be charged against the lending limit." Klenk points out that the applicant must meet the same eligibility requirements for a guaranteed loan as he would for a regular Farmers Home Administration loan of the same type. Interest rates and repayment terms are the same for guaranteed loans as for conventional Fanners Home loans. In order to make the guaranteed lending process easier and faster, applications, forms and statements are prepared by regular lenders. The Farmers Home Administration county supervisor has many loan programs available for farmers and other rural residents and rural communities. i^ti *.*-<-/ £>* ~ ; 7 double discounter A.
