William H. Settle becomes president of Indiana Farm Bureau.

Indiana Farm Bureau President William H. “Bill” Settle, a Chester White breeder from Wells County, convinces Gov. Harry Leslie to call a special session of the General Assembly to establish a tax levy limit on real property, which results in a $30 million savings annually to Indiana farmers.
