IXDNDON, Mar. 3.-A man's homo ' is his castle and in liriiain, as in oilier lands, many a man wrmis to lie not merely the tenant bin the master of liis castle. In dealing with Die problem of re-housing a large portion of its population, England lias, accordingly, madi; provision to aid tin would-be homc-owiu-r of .small i means by n system of municipal Joans. Parliament passed legislation in 1930 enabling local cilv governments to extend loans for the pm- chnse of standing or contemplated houses. Under the law. loans arc restricted to the purchase of houses costing under $4000. The size of the loan ranges up to 90 per cent nf the. house's value. The loan is secured ))j- a mortgage ami is repayed by either the "installment" or llie "an- JinUy" method. Tlic owner must niaks all rep.iir.s himself nnd must •' keep the house insured. j Advances are ma:ie in multiples I of SOT .md loans run for terms of 10, 15 or 20 years. If ihado for 20 years, only 80 per cent of the value of Hie house can be borrowed. Interest, is fixeil by the u c, C. tit 3 and 1-e per cent. Payments on (lie loan are umcie quarterly. If the loan is of the "annuity" type and runs for 10 years, the borrower repays $15.H per quarter on a 5500 loan. For the same stec loan on a 15-year basis, the quarterly payments .ire $11.02. and for a 20-year. $500 loan ot this type, $9.00 quarterly. Where the loan Is of the "install- inent" type and the amount $500. the borrower pays $12.50 per quarter on the principal of a 10-year loan, $9.33 on a 15-year loan and $3.25 on n 20-year loan. Interest rates vary from quarter lo quarter but on a 10-year: $500 loan of this type, the borrower pays a total of $99.29 in Interest. On a similar size 15- year loan, he pays a total of $147/12 In interest and on a 20-year loan, n total of S19G.1G- Thc Armistice first gave modem-day England a chance to hike stork of Itself nnd among oilier things it made the discovery that it would have to do something nbout housing, it found thai there were just, under 8.000.000 houses to provide shelter for a population of 37,000,000 in England and Wales. The. Government, thereupon, launched on a system of .state subsidies for the erection of small houses for the working classes. Til? first subsidy legislation provided $750 to $1300 per liirit, over n period of years for small house construction. But it, was soon found that this subsidy brought about the erection of JIOUKCS which could be rented by the "white collar" oroups instead of the working clfiss. In 1923, ^.subsidy system lor the con- Bti'UClipii of special workinsr class houses- was established. This provided $GOO per unit over n period of JO year, when (lie first Socialist Government came lo pmver the subsidy was raised to $1300. Prom 1920 (o 1933. about 1.27(1.000 small houses were built. 853.000 (if them by -local housing authorities nnd 423,000 by private builders. Non-subsidized private bui!din» was also stimulated into activity by the: government's building program. The subsidy period ended in 1933 when the National Government passed an act terminating further bounties except in the cases of slum V,lh fare dumlcal . „ „, va „ , uw mp „.„ t|l| . „ „ A|my aiciniettl bcrvice puts army, navy and marine corps ol fleers throuuh H Edl ',o of chemical ,smoke-eatin» to ert 'en, „«,! to It. -Clic photo shows „ B :o,,p «f olrll .
