MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 8 1935 LAFE HILL WOULD HAVE LOAN COMPANIES MAKE REPORTS FLOYD SENATOR INTRODUCES BILL Believes Interest Charges on Small Amounts to Be ExKorbitant. DES MOINES, Deo. 8. (/F)--Annual reports showing- total loans and the principal and interest paid would he required of loan companies under the provisions of an amendment to the small-loans bill filed today in the state senate by Senator Lafe Hill of FJoyd county. Senator Hill, editor at Nora Springs, said discussion had shown that senate members were in doubt and unable to estimate what should be a fair rate arid that his purpose in introducing 1 the amendment was to obtain this Information. The rate of interest on small loans has been a moot question since the law was enacted 12 years ago, he said. Report to Official. His amendment would require licensee to make a report to'the licensing official as to the business transacted during' the preceding: year. It also would set the interest rate on loans of more than 5250 at 2*4 per cent and on loans of not more than 5150 at 3 per Cent. The Floyd county solon recalled that as chairman of a subcommltee at the 'forty-fourth assembly session he made a close study of the subject of small loans and was convinced at that time that the rate of 3% per cent was exorbitant. He pointed out that small loans bills were defeated at that session and at the forty-fifth assembly. In the present session several bills were introduced and one was passed by the house so that this and others including' his own bill are now before the senate. Claim Not Borne- Out. His study, he said, has convinced him that "the claim on the part of small loan companies that the lower sums of money are not profitable is not borne out." Explaining that he had had an opportunity to study a number of loan contracts which were partly paid, he said that in all these the amount paid on the interest was "far in excess of the amount credited to the principal." He cited as an example a loan for 580, which had been running for a year and a half on which 520 had been paid on principal and $30 on interest.

You need genuine HIGH TEST for Instant Starting Right now your car can give you a very dramatic demonstration of the difference between gasolines. Just switch'from your present motor fuel to Phillips 66. The colder the day on which you try the first tankful, the more convincing the results will be--no long grinding of the starter, but a quick surge of action as the first spark ignites this eager gas. High test is what does the trick! High test ends the nuisance and damage of slow hard starting in winter. High test gives faster warm-up and smoother running, reduces battery drain, cuts crankcase dilution. g» gM VV 9 ^ *" That's what you read in many gasoline H f LouW^ ads. But only in Phillips' ads, so far as we know, can you find actual gravity figures which tell you exactly how high the test is. As the world's largest producer of natural high gravity gasoline, we offer extra high test--matched to your weather by our famous principle of CONTROLLED VOLATILITY--without any increase in price. We do it because we know that mere claims, no matter how clever, won't win the patronage of experienced motorists. Frankly, our hardest job is to get you to try that first tankful. Once you PHILL-UP WITH PHILLIPS, you actually feel such a difference that you never need any more reminders from us to look for the Orange and Black 66 shield. at the price of ordinary gasoline
