County Delegation Head Unchosen Through Delay coffee pot or a blanket or a steak knife . . . something free. A man. known as "the animal." comes to the home to close the deal. He brings along the FREE item and places it on the table. Then he goes to work on the unsuspecting prospect. He starts out by talking him out of the aluminum siding for $219. He belittles this item. He says that it will cost the prospect $25 every two months to wax the job. The animal puts on the hard sell by telling him that for $2,190 he can get a good job and forget it without having to spend the money for waxing. If the prospect resists the animal asks how much he is paying on his mortgage now. When he is told $275. the animal says that he can fix it up so that he pays only $75 a month and pocket the other $200. If the prospect still resists he is told he can use his home as a model and get $100 every one to be selected by the House delegation and one by the Senate group. Friday advanced Sen. Jerry Thomas.

Nixon Tuesday appointed his campaign political director, former Kansas congressman Robert F. Ellsworth, as a top trouble shooting presidential assistant. ' He will be a generalist in the truest sense of the word.' said Nixon press assistant Ronald L. Ziegler in announcing the appointment. He described Ellsworth's role as a 'policy and program assistant.'" who will advise the next president on domestic as well as foreign affairs. In a news conference at the Pierre Hotel. Ellsworth. 42. said the President elect would give him "across-the-board responsibility. It wouldn't rule out anything." Ellsworth said his first official duty for the Presidentelect would be to visit on Saturday the London Institute for Strategic Studies, which he described as a "think tank" of the sort operated by Rand Corp. and Brookings Institution in this country. He said he would "examine and explore the mode of operation of the institute, which he said concerned itself "largely" with defense matters. On Sunday, Ellsworth will return to New York for a luncheon conference with Henry Ford II and members of the National Alliance of Businessmen. He said he would discuss with the businessmen the problems of finding jobs for the unemployed, a primary interest of the alliance. Ellsworth becomes the fifth i.nii - aijni - iini GABFL NOW THRU SAT!

A time he influences his friends to take a home improvement mortgage. Finally, after offering other inducements he gets the prospect to sign a blank mortgage, a blank note and blank contract. They become legitimate instruments. "Banks can and do buy the mortgage," Hamilton said. Often no work is done. And the defrauded person has no resource. The animal can start with a $2,500 home improvement mortgage and work it up to a $6,000 mortgage and it is legal. "How to stop it?" he asked. "I don't know. The law as it is written today is lax. These con men prey on women as well as illiterates and the elderly. We are trying to educate the public not to sign these mortgages until they know what they are signing, to ask their attorney. " One bank in Tampa was "hooked" for $217,000 by forged mortgages, he said. One of them consisted of raising a mortgage of $14,000 to $44,982. Since 1961 a home improvement bill has been introduced into the State Legislature but it has been unable to get through. An attempt again will be made in this Legislature to pass a home improvement bill that will help the public from being fleeced.
