The HOLC Balances Its Books The Home Owners' Loan Corporation, balancing its books after six years of operation, reveals some interesting results. The idea of the HGLC was to "boil 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 o£ the H&LC loan was that the property should be in danger of foreclosure at the tame, 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 1934 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. Thfs has meant a S5C.OOO.OOO loss. The government holds also some 89.000 other homes through foreclosure, but as yet unsold. The eventual loss will probably roach S100.000.000. perhaps exceed it. . To offset this loss of S56.000.000 to date the government agency has piled up a reserve of $90,000,000. That represents the difference between the 5 per 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 4'.i! 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 just the way it is in private lending. Exactly how the government will come out when this experiment is finally liquidated, it is nt»t 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 FAMILY DOCTOR] T. M. REG. O. 9, PAT. OFf By OB, MORRIS Editor, Journal of the AtriMcan Medical AflMcfiMM, Ifygefn, the Health Magazine ( Emotional Strain, Family Troubles May Increase Arthritic Pains Rheumatoid arthritis is one «( the most prominent causes of disability in human beings mnvada.v.s. Ne.xt to the common cold it is- the most frequent cause of disabling illness. The condition has also been called alrophic arthritis and chronic infectious arthritis. There are so many varieties of this affliction that classification is difficult. This condition may affect people of any age, race, sex or social position. It seems to affect women 'more than me. mid the poor more com- ANSWER TO CRANIUM CRACKER monly than the rich. Afflictions of this type are found frequently in unsatisfactory environments. Exposure, cold and insufficient food are contributing factors. Sometimes this form of joint in- flammation may be unrelenting from the beginning. More frequently there are periods of inflammation of the joints wrlch are short, spnccd by intervals when there arc no symptoms. There is a tendency for the condition to become worse and for some of the joints to develop changes that are permanent. There may be such serious changes as to bring about partial or complete disability. There are 'many different causes of rheumatoid arthritis. Most physicians believe streptococcus germs nvc associated with this condition. Inflammations of the threont and infections around the teetli are usually present in cases of arthritis. Others feel the nervous system plays a part in the onset of this con- dition. They have traced relationships between the arthritic symptoms and emotional crises in the lives of (ho persons concerned. A number of Boston physicians made a study of 50 patients with typical rheumatoid arthritis to find out the extent to which emotional crises in their lives had brought on their illness. They made attempts to ccMYpare these cases with 25 patients who had varicose ulcers. Of the 50 patients, 10 men and 21 women seemed to have emotional factors associated with the onset of (heir inflammations of the joints. Ten men had stories of financial stress with times," "no work" and "on relief" as the underlying con- ditinns th»t were responsible. In 11 of the 23 records ohtiiined from women, (tie major burden was financial stringency because of the hiisbmid's inability to find There family poverty seemed to bo .important.
