The HOLC Balances Its Books The Home Owners* Loan Corporation, balancing its books after six years of operation, reveal? some interesting results. The idea of the HOLC was to "bail out" home-owners whose homes were about to be foreclosed by private lenders. The HOLC was to make a new loan, enabling the original debt to be paid off.. Since the primary condition of the HGLC loan was that the property should be in danger of foreclosure at the time, it is not surprising that a large number should have ''bounced back" on the government. What has happened during the six years is approximately this: During 1933 and 1951 loans were made on 1.018.000 homes. On one out of every seven it has been necessary to foreclose. And on three-quarters of those foreclosures (about 55.000', the government lost money. This has meant a $56.000.000 loss. The government holds also some 89.000 nther homes through foreclosure, but as yet unsold. The eventual loss will probably reach $100,000.000. perhaps exceed it. To offset this loss of 556.000,000 to date the government agency has piled up a reserve of S90.000.000. That represents the difference between the 5 pel- cent charged borrowers and the low rates at which the corporation issued its government-guaranteed bonds. This reserve will not pile up at so great ,a rate in the future because the interest rate has been cut from 5 to 4Vi per cent. In other words, up to now the losses from those who would not or could not pay have been made up by the interest paid in by those who stood by their contracts. That is jxist the way it is in private lending. Exactly how the government will come out when this experiment is finally liquidated, it is not yet possible to say. Up to now. in spite of the big loss on foreclosures, the "profit" on interest would seem to be more than holding the corporation on even keel. There may be some liss in the end. But against whatever loss there may be, must always be balanced the profit to the national life of having kept 800,000 families in their own homes, and given them a new start on the road that leads to owning them. It won't show up on the balance sheet, but this item ought to be worth something. • "The More You Tell the Quicker You Sell" • • You Can Talk to Only One Man • Want Ads Talk to Thousand* SELL-RENT BUY OR SWAP.

Exposure, cold and insufficient food nre contributing factors. Sometimes this form of joint in- flammation may be unrelenting from the beginning. More frequently there nre periods of inflammation of the Joints \vrich nre short, spaced by in- tervnls when there nre no symptoms. There is n tendency for the condition to become worse anil for some of the joints to develop changes that nre permanent. There may he such serious changes as to bring about partial or complete disability. There are 'muny different causes of rheumatoid arthritis. Most physicians believe streptococcus germs are associated with this condition. Inflammations of the threoat and infections around the teeth are usually present in cases of arthritis. Others feel the nervous system plays n part in the onset of this con- dition. They have traced relationships between the arthritic symptoms and emotional crises in the lives of the persons concerned. A number of Boston physicians made a .study of 50 patients with typical rheumatoid arthritis to find out Ihe extent to which emotional crises in their lives had brought on their illness. They made attempts to coYn'pare those cases with 2H patients who had varicose ulcers. Of the 50 patients, 11) men and 21 women seemed to have emotional factors associated with the onset of their inflammations of the joints. Ten men had stories of financial stress with "hnrd times," "no work" and "on relief" as the underlying con- ditions that were responsible. In 11 of the 23 records obtained from women, the major burden was financial stringency because of the husband's inability to find work. There were seven CUSPS in which family worries not associated wllh poverty seemed to be important. There were six cases in which there was ii cifinhinntion of financial and family worry. In seven cases the death of a parent or of a husband or wife was observed prior to a .sudden exacerbation and inflammation of the joints. In three cases serious inflammation of the joints followed information that a husband or a wife had been strain seemed to bo associated vJffh the fact that the people concerned were living with (heir mothers-in- law. In contnwt to these reports, there were only Ihiee cases out of 2, r , with va: icii-.c ulceralion in whom any I'lMiieidenre rmild he found with Ihe besjinninn of the nice-ration and ;-'Ocial S'lirss.
