Offices in New Loans BUSINESS GROWTH Loans Totaling $142,800 Were Pending On Jan. 1,1938 Writing over half a million dollars of new business, the Algona National Farm Loan association, In Kossuth county, Iowa, led all associations in the Omaha district in loan closings for 1937. Thirty-nine joint loans, 13 Federal Land bank loans and two commissioner loans, totaling $524,600, put the northern Iowa association out in front for the year. Owns No Farms Above are pictured the directors .and the office force. Mr. Carlson, -a charter member of the association, serves on the loan committee •with Mr. Patterson and Mr. Egel. At the turn of the year the oflgoclation had 8 running start on 1938, with a total of $142,800 applications pending. With ho real estate owned and •virtually no servicing worries to •command Its attention, the Algona •association concentrated Its efforts on new loans throughout 1937. Twice during the year the secretary-treasurer, H. D. Hutchins, circularized the entire membership -with letters urging them to tell their friends and neighbors about the favorable terms and Interest savings to be realized from land bank and commissioner loans. 'Members Best Boosters' The letters brought out forcibly that farmers who take out long- term loans while rates are low will never be forced to renew In hard times and run the risk of getting •"caught" In a cycle of high interest rates. The secretary-treasurer and the president give the members a large share of the credit for the association's heavy run of new loans. Left to right, seated—Henry F. Weber, A. B. Schenck, W. H. Patterson, president, Charlie C. Egel and George E. Sanders; standing—Herman Carlson. H. D. Hutchins, secretary-treasurer, and E. H. Hutchins. "Our members are our best boosters," said Mr. Patterson. "They have confidence In the association and its management, with the result that they say a good word for the organization whenever they have the opportunity." Chartered in 1928, the Algona NFLA now has 706 land bank and commissioner loans, totaling $4,104,500. Ski Slide Popular In Union Twp.

Norton & Son Algona, Iowa Little Chato About Your Health—No. 4 Early Attention Helps Beat Cancer A physician eaya "The only known cause of cancer is neglect and the only known cure is early recognition and suitable treatment". Although the attack on cancer is proceeding along a thousand fronts and will some day be crowned by victory, it is still necessary to use every precaution that it may be identified in its begining. If there is doubt as to the nature of any lump or abnormal growth found on the body, a competent physician should be immediately consulted. In any illness early and capable attention is safest.
