Mendenhall emphasized that NAREB is not opposed to civil rights but that the type of bill now before the Congress would destroy civil liberties. "That kind of victory is hollow, and the cost is too great," he added. While NAREB had not taken a stand on the federal "civil rights" bill previously, recent, debate has disclosed the wide rlivergencies in opinion among senators on its effect in many areas, including real estate, and the broad-brush intent to inter-i better home? ,jcct the federal government into the everyday life of most segments of our economy.

This means, when you buy or sell real estate, your Realtor is pledged to protect vour interests. "The National Association of Real Estate Boards steadfastly holds to the principle that the right to own, rent, and dispose of real property and the right to use it freely, within the limits Of necessary measures to protect the public health and safety, and the exchange of goods and services in a free market are inalienable rights of Americlan citizens regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin; and these rights must continue to be preserved as well as cherished under all circumstances. "This Association finds that H.R. 7152 as passed by the House of Representatives and now before the Senate is a bill that Would, under the guise of civil rights legislation, result in an unlimited extension of federal ties of every citizen, and would abrogate inalienable rights guaranteed lo each citizen which arc indispensable to the main- "Move Up lo More in '64—A Better Home thru a Realtor" has been selected as the slogan for the 1964 Realtor Week, w h 5 c h opened Sunday, Paul Guillory, president of the Lake Charles Board of Realtors, an* nounced. Realtor Week activities have been planned for Sunday through May 30, Guillory said, as Realtors from this area join with (he more than 75,000 others throughout the nation in efforts to emphasize the distinction between Realtors and just anyone in the real estate business and to acquaint the public with the services offered by them. "A R e a 1 i o r," Guillory cx- 1 plained, "is a member of the National Association of Real Esi late Boards, one of the largest profeneional and trade associations in the nation. To qualify for membership in NAREB, a real estate broker must demonstrate his profes sional ability, must be approved by the other members of the lo cat board, and, finally, subscribe to the rigid Code of Eth ics of the National Association, The primary goal of the Real tor under this code is to keep the interests of both the buyer and the seller uppermost in mind during a transaction."

He made the announcement Decision Determined By Home "Who decides" will vary from family to family. But there are some signs that Double Popu/of/on Is Forecast First Move Is Selecting Your Realtor Select a Realtor as the first step to a successful transaction. The first step is selecting the real estate broker who will sell your house. If a perfect stranger rang your doorbell and asked to come in, you probably would refuse. But when you try to sell your house yourself, you are opening the door to persons who may be curiosity seekers — or worse. A broker prevents such a nuisance or danger by screening the prospects, bringing to inspect your house only those who have demonstrated a genuine interest and ability to buy. Tiiis is the first of several reasons why you should arrange for a competent broker to handle the sale. And the broker himself must be selected with care. Choose a broker who is active in the neighborhood and surrounding area — one who knows the community. He should have a good reputation with the local business people. And you will want a broker who is personally assertive or has an active and progressive sales force and who is an established, full-time professional. ; Probably the easiest way to find a broker with these quali- 1 ficalions is to locate a Realtor ; in your area. A Realtor is a pro- I fessional in real estale who is quate housing but dwellings that will permit them to live in the manner they wish. "Much of the world today is enjoying this new prosperity," Guillory stated, "but nowehere else is home ownership more available. In fact, the ease »f owning one's own home in the United States is unique throughout the world." Realtors, Guillory concluded, feel they have contributed greatly to the nation's prosperity. NAREB and its leaders have for years urged and promoted home ownership both by the business in which they are engaged and by support of legislation and custom that have made purchase possible for millions of families who tbuld not previously afford it. The National Association of Real Estate Boards was founded in 1908 in Minneapolis and now maintains offices in Chicago and Washington, B.C. Realtors are kept up-to-date on changes in real estale law, mortgage rates, buying trends, and other business factors through publications of the association's professional staff, which maintains close contact with developments throughout the country.
