The vet will pay nothing down and about $33 a month instead of the approximate $42 previously needed on an $8,000 home. He also may buy a higher- priced home because of VA's Increased guarantees.

For a 4-bedroom house. PHA win undenvrie another £050. with a mortgage total of J8550, The down pa ym en t is $450. For .so- called "hijrh-cost" metropolitan construction areas, this house will" cost around $10,000 and FHA will raise its mortgage limit another £950, with total down payment only $500. Will Seek Air-Conditioning With smaller cash down payments, ninny home-buyers can afford to get into higher price brack- s and will seek more conveniences n their homes. Among these Is air- on d it ioning, for which there is a rowing trend. Air-conditioning is ot unduly expeiwive when install- d in a new home, especially if Ihe ousc Is fully insulated with rnin- ral wool, which is used In more lan 60% of all home insulation obs. Loss of cool air Is minimized In :ie hot-weather months by use of nsulation, Just as is loss of heat in tie cold-weather period, cutting to minimum the cost of operating an ir-condilioniiig unit. Even a non- ir-conditioned home is up to 15 egrecs cooler in summer if prop- rly insulated, and the fuel saving n winter will be 30% or more. When the new housing act be- ame law, FHA reduced its interest ate on home mortgages from 4 ] ,£% 4 1|4%. As the buyer pays 1|2 of % for FHA insurance, the total cost is 4 3[4% against the former 'oorier Newi Photo JOE HUGHES HOME—Above Is the Joe T. Hughes home at 712 Pecan.

Several Causes There are several causes for rusty discoloration of water fl nving from hut-water faucets. Rust anil dirt may be carried In Irom the street main; or may be caused by rusting of house pipes and supply tank; or by sediment collecting when water is heated. The_ system should have a drain cock n't the bottom of the supply tank, while the pipe from the supply tank lo heating unit should be located several inches above the bottom of the tank. This will permit sediment to settle in the bottom and be drained off by the cock. Sediment also collects 1n pipes if there Is little or no circulation. If the heater has a shut-off valve and drain cock It can be flusiied is often as necessary. Water usually Is kept clean by flushing heating coil and draining sediment from the tank once a month.

Crawfordsvllle Group Ail-Out Against "Fair Dtal" The political situation in Craw fordsvlllc is entirely didcrent froi what Anderson experienced. Craw fordsville is principally known a the seat of Wabash Colleee. Craw fordsville's industries—dominated 1> a branch plant of a Chicago print ing company—are largely open sho plants. Ciawfordsvillo has had n bad labor relations problems and n C.I.O.-P.A.C. to contend with. There really Is no great local pi litlcal clean-up movement lo ni over in Crawfordsvllle. But the rawfordsville Chamber of Comerce and some 350 local business ieii feel that the voters need etiu- atlng on public issues In the No- ember elections. In the words of Mr. Thompson, n* of the purposes of the Craw- ordsville educational campaign will to "Knock oul the idea thai sc- urily Is anything to seek. The sad art of the New Deal," he says, "Is uat it lias mnde people lose the eeHitg of satisfaction in doing omethlng for themselves." As direct targets, the Crawfords- llle campaign will shoot at the Jrnmr.m plan, soclall7.ed medicine, Igh taxes and the welfare slate, which H will refer to as "the Poor- lonse State." "We don't want to nnke the profession^} Democrats nnd," says Mr. Thompson, "but we ,o want to do our little bit to stop ociallsin in America. . . . It's op- lortunity we want, not security. "We're still American enough to relieve that if enough people go to he polls, \vc can beat these things," vlr, Thompson conchulos. "But," he iidds, "if i\ majority of Use people still want what we've got now, so It, Thjs i.s democracy." This rather frank statement of objectives brings up the matter of the real purposes of the Anderson American Guard. The Ounrd has won Us reputation for conducting a Ill-partisan political clean-up campaign. But its real alms are staled in its constitution. There are a few generalities that everyone can agree with, such as "To sludy the Constitution of the United States. ... To abide by and promote the leaching of the word of God. . ." But along with these are some specifics: "To demand a reduction of ... Federal controls over business. To guard against Individual rights being sacrificed for security. To demand that the Federal government refrain from competing with private industry. To Insure the fanners of a stabilised—but not socialized—agricultural economy."
