Embezzlement Of $2 Million Shakes Little Iowa Town SHELDON 1 , Iowa (APj — The economy of this small town in i northwest Iowa was in a state of confusion today as the result of a S2-million -embezzlement from the Sheldon National Bank. There were payrolls to be met. outstanding checks that seemed sure to encounter trouble, citizens without funds and local business records in financial disarray. In jail, beyond the reach of persons , seeking public answers to the questions of how and why it ail happened, was Burnice Geiger, fiS, daughter of the bank president. The U.S. district attorney's office in Sioux Gty said Mrs. Geiger — a director and assistant t/ashier of the bank—admitted the embezzlement. A prominent citizen, she was known for her char- itable'works. Her father, W.P. Iverson, 83, president of the bank for 45 years. could only say: "I'm all choked up." The bank was closed for liquidation by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. after a routine audit by federal bank examiners turned up the shortage Monday night. Officials of • the FDIC were checking the records of deposits which were insured up to $10,000 each. The bank's last statement on Dec. 31 listed total assets at Sl.9K.000. The embezzlements were estimated at 52,126,89ft- The sentiments among businessmen was summarized by the comment ofone: "We've heard the boom, now we're waiting for Ihe echo." The manager of a big soybean processing company which distributes products in the Midwest said that his company has "outstanding checks all wet the country." The only financial institution remaining in Sheldon, the Security State Bank, was deluged with requests for aid in solving money needs. Townspeople had great difficulty believing Mrs. Geiger embezzled the bank funds. Many whom she had personally aided refused to credit the report. Mrs. Geiger was held at Sioux City on a charge of embezzlement for a grand jury set to convene there Jan. 30. She waived a hearing and did not immediately make bail set at $10,000. ______ Texans Get Low Congress Bills WASHINGTON (AP)r-Members of Congress always like to get low numbers or easily remembered or even big numbers on the bills they introduce.
