Life Begins at Forty Local Groups Can Build for Elders By ROBERT PETERSON Folks often write this column and ask what can be done to secure better housing for older people in their neighborhoods. They sa.y they have read about .shiny, efficient,' low-cost apartments and group residences for settlors in many parts of the country, and they wonder why in the world the ill-housed elders in their areas can't have similar housing. The answer is that they can. And it'g not such a difficult trick to turn. If you can assemble a list of 20, 30 or 40 older people in your community who are living in inadequate housing, or in housing which they cannot afford, you will be taking the first big step toward meeting the i need. Your next step is to con- : tact non-profit organizations or | private builders and talk them i into applying for loans which are \ available for this purpose. i There are two plans which , non-profit groups, such as churches or fraternal groups, can use in securing funds. First, there's the direct loan program under which non-pro- MARMADUKE This is a park bench...not a love seat! fit private groups may apply for three-and-a-half percent, 50 year loans from the Housing and Home Finance Ageney. To get such a loan the group must submit evidence of actual need for such housing. They must have sufficient funds to buy a building site, employ an architect, have blueprints made, and buy furnishings and movable equipment for the proposed structure. And they also need enough money in the bank to cover 25 per cent of the building's operating budget for the first year. That's it. If their application is approved they are eligible to receive a loan covering the full cost of actual construction of the housing project. Second, the Federal Housing Administration offers a plan under which Uncle Sam insures the full cost of mortgage loans whidh a non-profit group may borrow from a bank for the purpose of constructing housing for the elderly.

(AP) —The Defense Department hopes to launch a flashing beacon satellite Wednesday to make more accurate measurements of the earth. The shot had been schdul- ed today but was delayed 24 hours because of technical problems with the booster rocket. Sir Edmund Hillary, the conqueror of Mt.

If such a loan can be secured, all the group has to do Is give its plans to a builder so that exact costs can be determined and then submit the application to the nearest FHA office. Private, profit-making firms can also get mortgage insurance from FHA covering 90 per cent of the cost of housing projects created specifically for eld ers. That's how dynamic Ross W. Cortese, 45, got the millions to create "Leisure World" at Seal Beach, Calif., which Is the world's largest cooperative apart ment development in the world for older people. If it's this easy, you may ask, why isn't more low cost housing for older people being constructed? The answer seems to be that many non-profit, groups are lazy • when it comes to taking direct action in solving social problems. And many private builders have not bothered because they seem to find more profits in other forms of construction.
