In the Matter of
BANK OF HORTON
HORTON, TEXAS
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST

   Bank of Horton, Horton, Kansas ("Bank"), having been advised of its right to a Notice of Charges and of Hearing detailing the unsafe or unsound banking practices and violations of law and/or regulations alleged to have been committed by the Bank and of its right to a hearing on such alleged charges under section 8(b) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(b), and having waived those rights, entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with counsel for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), dated May 9, 1990, whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any unsafe or unsound banking practices or violations of law and/or regulations, the Bank consented to the issuance of an ORDER TO CEASE AND DESIST ("ORDER") by the FDIC.
   The FDIC considered the matter and determined that it had reason to believe that the Bank had engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and had violated laws and/ or regulations. The FDIC, therefore, accepted the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issued the following:

   (d) The Bank shall not make, approve, or purchase any Student Loan to or for the benefit of any student attending an Institution which has an Institutional Default Rate in excess of 20 percent, as reported in the latest data complied and issued by the U.S. Department of Education for the Guaranteed Student Loan Programs or as reported in the latest data compiled and issued by the Guarantee Agency which guarantees such Institution's Student Loans.
