Farmers Top
Bank Business
Farmers were the biggest cus
tomers of Nebraska's state banks
in 1949, according to a study made
by Dr. Edgar Z. Palmer, business
research expert of the University
Business Administration college.
Last year loans to farmers ac
counted for well over. 70 percent
of the lending business done by
state banks in Nebraska,
Dr. Palmer points otft that loans
to farmers, not secured by real
estate, totaled $78,737,000 in 1949
or 67.5 percent of the total busi
ness done by the state banks.
Most of these loans, Dr. Palmer
says, are largely those guaran
teed by the Commodity Credit
corporation, and is "an indication
of the huge quantities of farm
products which are in the process
of being dumped on the govern
ment because of the fall in prices."
State banks, in addition, made
loans of $15,028,000 last year. This
is 12.9 percent of the business
state banks do in the state. Of the
total real estate loans about one
third, or $5,249,000, was on farm
property and presumably a large
part of the lending was secured
by farmer-owners, Dr. Palmer be
Loans mainly for business pur
poses totaled $14,832,000 or 12.7
percent of the total business done
by state banks. Installment loans
to consumers totaled $6,569,000 or
5.6 of the total, and all other loans
and overdrafts accounted for $1,-
451,000 and 1.2 percent of the
Dr. Palmer says the percentages
of loans to assets in Nebraska's
state banks is "on the way back
to the prewar normal."

Cooper Leaps
14 Feet With
WAFoot Pole
Ever hear of a pole vaulter
who does 14 feet with a 13y2
foot pole?
That was the accomplishment
of Don Cooper, University sky
rider in the Duel of Champions
at Dallas, Tex., when the Big
Seven conference won from the
Southwest conference, 79 to 52.
Actually, Cooper's pole meas
ured 14 feet. However, subtract
the five or six inches for the box
in which a vaulter plants his pole
before the flight upward and you
get about a 13 foot 6 or 7 inch
Cooper will compete in the
National Collegiate Track and
Field Championships at Minne
apolis, June 16-17.
Until the Dallas meet, Cooper
had been using an orthodox,
16-foot pole. During the Nebraska'
high school championships, his
teammate, Leonard Kehl, was
practicing with the pole which
Kehl's home town of Scottsbluff
had brought here for the use of
their vaulters.
Both Kehl and Cooper liked
the shorter stick. So 'Scottsbluff
loaned it to Coach Ed Weir and
both Nebraska vaulters used it as
the Cornhuskers were winning
the Big Seven championships.
Cooper was second with a vault
of 13 feet 4, Kehl tied for third
at 12-6.
The shorter pole still provided
a problem when the Big Seven
squad started from Kansas City
to Dallas for the Duel of Cham
pions. They were riding a stream
liner which was sealed tight for
air conditioning. By opening a
door in the dining car they man
aged to get the pole into the
However, on the return journey
it was necessary to "break" the
train in order to get it off.
