C., Nov. 23.— by employing the Insured ivfort- gage System In the purchase of a home, the average • family Is able to avoid many of the common mistakes into which persons unfamiliar with the technicalities ol mortgage transactions often fall, according to Stewart McDonald, Federal Housing Administrator. | Only families with ample means can afford to experiment with forms of home financing which have been outmoded, by recent developments in mortgage lending practice. Mr. McDonald said. The Insured fvfortgage System! of the Federal Housing Adminis-j (ration provides families of moderate and fixed Incomes with a safer and more convenient method of purchasing a home. Tlie additional safeguards inherent in the plan make il particularly well adapted to use by this large group of families. "Home ownership can be one ofi Hie safest, soundest and most satisfactory forms of Investment for the average family, If it Is undertaken on a sound, business basis," the administrator said. "Under other conditions, however, it niny be a hazardous experiment. The pure I) use of a home is not only the largest but also the most involved transaction undertaken by the average family. Few persons have the technical, specialized knowledge necessary for the completion of such "a 'transaction. Few people know the difference between a well built and a shoddy house; the evaluation of the character of a neighborhood Iq * u technical problem; and every type of mortgage has its own particular advantages and disadvantages, none of which is evident. to the layman. "In the past, only those who could afford the fees necessary to employ mortgage and building ex- perls could be sure of. avoiding the many .pitfalls inherent in. the purchase of'a-home. The majority of families 'paid their money and took a chance', hoping that, they htul. measured the situation properly.; "Now, under the Federal Housing Administration Insured Mortgage System, the average .family Is able to obtain the services ofi technically trained valuators, ap- ] praisers .and architects. When a mortgage is submitted for insurance, the staff of the Administration's locat' office examines the property,, the neighborhood, the mortgage transaction with the greatest, care. Many of the common mistake's in previous mortgage, transactions are thus obviated." . Mr! McDonald pointed out that the terms under which home buyers can obtain mortgage money are also favorable. The stabilized Interest rate and the absence of renewal fees make the amortized, Insured mortgage one of the safest methods of investing in a house for the average family.

C.~Proper- , ties acquired by the Federal Housing Administration following forc- ;!osure of .insured mortgages by approved' lending Institutions will be managed, rented, and sold by local real estate dealers opmUing under a brokerap.e contract. Broncl policies for the management of -policies are laid down by t h e Washington headquarters. Brokers receiving contracts may, v.-ithin the limitations laid down, make full use of their knowledge of the local market in handling individual properties. VVIu-lhei- properties are to be immediately sold or held for rental, they will be reconditioned immediately. Each property will be placed in condition which will make it compare favorably with other properties of the type on the mar- .cct. ReconditioniiiK contracts will let to local firms. Held For Market Since the Federal Housing Administration is well able to hold Individual properties until market conditions are favorable, there is little chance that local market londlttons in any city or state will be upset by the sale of foreclosed Federal Housing Administration properties. Administration officials point out ihat at the present time so few properties arc held that it is uii- ikely tlmt any unfavorable reaction could be felt. At the end of September 1937 the Administration lad acquired title to only 37 properties, of which 13 had been «fj!d and 18 were bfins held until local conditions \viiriitnled their :;ulc. ' : llrokerage contracts set ul> .call for the payment of fees aUthc established local rale. Where the local real estate board has set a rate, this rate is incorporated in (he contract. Otherwise, the prevailing rale dictated by custom will be used. Insurance Premiums Cover Possible Loss The National Housing; Act permits a charge not in excess of 'l per cent for 'insurance premium; { on insured mortgages. However, a ) study of mortgage ilsk on dwellings made by the Federal Housing Administration has sliov/n that, u charge of one-half of 1 per cent should be ample to cure for possible losses on volume business over a long period of time. Must Be Residential Property to he considered eligible for the insured mortgage financing of the Federal Housing Administration must be residential in character and provide for not more than four single-family residential xmits. FHA Does Not Lend The Federal Housing Administration lends no money. It insures loans made by private financial institutions operating under provisions of the National Housing Act. Home May Be Bought On Convenient Plan The Insured Mortgage System of the Federal Housing Administration hns provided families having moderate and fixed incomes a safer and more convenient method of purchasing a home than the outmoded experimental forms of home financing which prevailed in this country for many years. The additional safeguards provided by the plan, as well ns its low cost, make It particularly well adapted to use by families of moderate means.

Is it possible to install an automatic stoker for any furnace? A. Almost all. domestic heating boilers or furnaces are adaptable lo automatic-stoker installation. The principal requirement for successful stoker operation is to have plenty of distance between the flame and the top of the firebox. Where this is lacking in the ordinary furnace it is often possible cither to pit the stoker or raise the furnace or suspend a suitable baffle from the (op of the firebox. Certain types of magazine-feed boilers are not adaptable to stoker installation without fairly complicated baffling of the magazine, section. Many ol the stoker companies furnish units especially designed for their product, and the additional expenditure for such a unit Is of(cn justified by greater operating efficiencies. Q. Can stucco walls ever be cleaned satisfactorily? A. Portland cement stucco is not injured by the application of water or by water and cleaning materials. It may be cleaned by hose application of water and brushing with a wire or fiber brush, or it may be first cleaned by vigorous scrubbing v.'ith soap solution and fiber bnish and then thoroughly rinsed with clean cold water. These treatments will usually remove all dust and smoke stains. It the stucco is p unusually dirty, i{ may be washed j with a solution of muriatic acid, 1 part of acid to G or V parts of water brushed on with a fiber broom, alter which il should be | thoroughly rinsed with cold water to remove all traces of add. For white cement stucco it is belter to use a sulphuric-acid solution, as the muriatic acid nas a tendency to prodce K yellowish tinge on white cement.
