Since no do., i payments are tfe- nanclrd from war veterans by nany builders, and it) it la I pny- nrnts romfired from other buyers a smaller percentage of the mrehase price than In previous K of building activity, h iwnershlp is rising throughout, the country.

Monthly outlay of a veteran buying the same home with no ttowu payment is estimated at between $65 and $70. Although the veteran borrows his money at A", muter the G.T. BUI of Rights, lack of down payment makes the mortgage $2.000 greater than the r.iv- lllttn's. Hence tonthlv amortization payments are 552.80. No fixed estimate on maintenance of a house has ever been made, but many mortgage lenders say that K*. of the cost of the house per year Is a fair figure. ! This Is largely offset by alloxvublc income tax deductions for niort- . aage Interest. Many stales nSso have laws which exempt war veterans from paying properly taxes on (.hat part, ol their honir investment which conies frotn bonus or pensions for war service. —Courier New* Photo HIGH SCHOOL FOR XKGROICS UNDKK CONSTRUCTION— Work is well under way for a new high school for Negroes in Blylheville but vuc building will not be ready tor use when school opens in September, it was disclosed today.
