SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 4, I960 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGI1 Non-White Buying! 1 * THIRD PAY Ups Home Values Everyone Feels Stage Shutdown r --CltlzMl Phetl DR. LUIGI LAURENTI By DOMINIC CROLLA Real estate values are more likely to rise when nonwhites buy homes in formerly all-white neighborhoods, a nationally known housing economist said here last night, Dr. Luigi Laurenti of San Francisco, speaking at a meeting of the Tucson Council for Civic Unity, said that prices in fact are four times more likely to rise or remain constant than prices in comparable neighborhoods that have all-white residents. Laurenti said this is the principal conclusion indicated by an analysis of more than 10,000 house sales in San Francisco, Oakland and Philadelphia. "It deals a crushing blow to the widely-held idea that entry of non-whites into a neighborhood always causes property values to decline," he said. "Since World War II all northern areas have experienced a great influx of non-whites, particularly Negroes. Akmg with this has come « remarkable rise in income levels for non-whites," Laurenti claimed. "And in seeking ihelter for their families to get into decent housing, there has been a greater settlement of non-whites in white neighborhoods." Laurartf »aid that th* crucial factor that determines how prices will behave in a racially-changing neighborhood is this: Does demand lag behind, stay even with, or outrun supply. Prices always have been the outcome of the supply and demand tug-of-war-and *ey always will be In an open economic system. He said that in 1948, segregating could be legally supported through the so-called "restrictive covenant," a contract signed by the property buyer to prevent him selling or renting to a non-white. But in that year, the Supreme j Court ruled that such covenants were not enforceable by any court of law, and this has greatly broadened the housing markets available to non-whites. "In an affirmative sense," said Laurenti, "17 states and 20 cities have passed laws which forbid racial or religious discrimination in the aale or rental of private housing. "Under this typ* o( law, a builder or a property owner subjects himself to fines and other penalties if h» refuses to sell or rent his property on th« basis of race or religion." Laurenti, author of a new book on racial integration in housing, said the leader of th« movement to eliminate discrimination in housing is New York--at both *tat« and city level. The laws passed there havt been the models for thow adopted in other areas. He said there had been a significant shift in the attitude and policies of the federal housing agencies: 1--In public housing, local authorities have been encouraged to abandon segregation policies. 2--The Federal Housing Administration and the Veterans' Administration loan programs have continually moved away from the restrictive policies which they supported from about 1940 to 1948. "Many regional FHA and VA offices," said Laurenti, "now refuse to havt any further dealings with a builder or lender who violates any local law against discriminating in housing." He said that if the day should come when «very non-white family is scattered throughout the entire community this would mean that only one house in seven Bad Check Charge Dismissed A "complete reversal of Information" on the part of three witnesses led to the dismissal of a charge against Georg« A. McAllister, 29 E. Glenn St, in Superior Court yesterday, on a charge of writing a check on in- ·ufficient funds. "There now is no evidence that he did this crime," Deputy County Arty. Robert Hillock said yesterday in Judge Robert 0. Roylston'g court. Hillock's motion to dismiss was granted by Roylston. Hillock later told a reporter that an employ* of McAllister'* had filed the complaint wheti a pay- ·heck could not be cashed. Three other employe* ttated, however, that McAllister had warned his employe* that the ·hccki would not b« good until a lat«r date and that the employe ·itiwr didn't hear the warning or ·^·understood.

Negotiations between E q u i t y and the League of New York Theaters were recessed until Monday for a weekend cooling-off period. There were fears the shutdown might last until autumn. "We're all crying in our beer," a taxi driver lamented as he surveyed the darkened show district last night. "This is bad on our business," complained a barker for a sightseeing tour as he gazed dourly down deserted streets. "If they don't come to the theaters they don't ride our buses." started laying off workers. But the Broadway blackout was proving a boon to the 21 little off- Broadway theaters. Often ignored in the big-money rush to big-name shows, they were enjoying a sudden burst of prosperity ac thwarted theatergoers searched for tickets anywhere. Producer David Moss o( "Tobacco Road" at th* Cricket Theater chortled happily: "I had already posted notices that we were closing Sunday but that's all changed ftow." However, off-Broadway houses handle little more than 6.000 patrons, whereas the big theaters receive about 27,000 a night. Some 800 actors and 4,000 stage- ran 30 days and ended with the recognition of Equity by producers as the actors' bargaining agent. In this fight Equity seeks a pension plan with all contributions made by the producers, based on a percentage of the Broadway payroll. This total payroll runs about $207,679 a week. The producers proposed a two- way plan, with Equity bearing * j part of the expense. In recessing talks until Monday afternoon, City Labor Commis siructors.
