Iowa Okader P. C. A.~i^ Reach million and half The Elkader Production Credit association reached a volume of S!.. r )(iO,000.00 in loans outstanding to farmers during the first half of 1%1. according to Manager P. V. Dougherty. Dougherty added that this year's volume was only one per cent lower than the record- breaking volume acheived last year. He anticipates a brisk pace in loan activity during thc remainder ff 19G1 due to increased farm michanization, high costs of operation, a trend toward more efficient farm units, and to finance livestock operations. The Elkader PCA makes snort- and intermediate-term loans to farmers in Clayton, Dubuquc, Allamakee, Kayette, Delaware, and Winneshiek counties. .foel Clark of Elkader is president of the local PCA, and Leo C. lierold.

The entire party arrived at this campsite numbering 91 members, counting women and children.

These men are performing the geodetic work of the Coast and Geodetic Survey which consists of several types of surveying operations and requires the highest degree of accuracy.
