Nearly five years Joe Junior is four years old. There linvc been a lol of costly repairs, especially when the piiino broke through ihe living room door. Tlie front door no longer fits its iramc. Healing costs are like robbery. The place is not worth the S2.000 yet to pay on It and Joe is ready (o null. The'D'Oaks family enters temporary quarters nnd takes a loss of $3.000 plus. The oilier 32,000 Tlie house is not paid for. Joe signed installment notes before lie moved in. The real estate man discounted them to a bank. Does the bank lose the 52,000? Certainly not tlie loan was insured by tho Fed cral Housing Administration. Soni the FHA takes the mortgage and tries lo sell what Joe couldn't endure. Government's average loss 01 such deals exceeds $600 and there are plenty of them.
