Home Federal Assets Now A$P$$' Near Eight Million Total Home Federal Savings and Loan Association of Algona today reported that its assets now amount to $7,924,883.09 or an 18 percent increase over what they were a year ago. C. R. LaBarre, president of the association, in releasing the annual report, said that the institution's progress continued to be based on serving an increasing number of Algona and vicinity citizens, and "serving them well." "With each passing year", he said "we serve a growing number of people, either by providing, a safe, convenient and profitable place for their savings, or by granting them loans on a sound basis for the purchase of homes." Mr LaBarre listed highlights of the specialized thrift and home financing institution's 1955 operations as follows: Net savings in 1955 increased by .$1,077,580.08 or about 19%. Total earnings or dividends paid to investors and savings account holders for the year of 1955 were $168,707.56. The Association is currently paying 3% annually payable on June 30th and December 31st. Home loans increased both in number and amount. 380 new loans were made in 1955 totaling $2,216,056.57 and the total outstanding loans amount to $6,104,051.23. Reserves now amount to $396, 864.51 or an increase of about 22% over a year ago. Mr LaBarre forecast another good year for business in 1956 especially for the first 6 months. The economic expansion of 19f>5 would continue, he predicted, bolstered by a high level of plant and equipment expenditures, expanding inventories, a high rate? of consumer spending, peak employment and a high level of construction. Further contributing to an optimistic business outlook, he said, were the facts that 1950 is an election year, and that tax reductions appear to be in thai offing. As for housing, Mr LaBarre reported that demand continues strong, being sustained by "an increased desire on the part of the public for up-to-date and larger homes, a rising rate of disposable personal income and a continued high rate of family formation." While housing starts may decline somewhat over last year, he commented, the year would still go down as the country's third biggest home building year. "Despite some tightening of mortgage money, there will be plenty of funds available at Home Federal to finance the 1956 volume of home building," Mr La- Biirre concluded.
