Hence, Improvement of existing dwellings Is a most important factor In the general improvement of housing standards. Some 900,000 homes have been improved with the proceeds of notes Insured under the Modernization Credit Plan since it was put in operation. In addition, 250.0W two-family houses and apartments were improved by such loans, as well as 150,000 other properties, comprising business and industrial buildings, hotels, hospitals, orphanages, colleges, schools, churches, and farms. As in the two previous years, the availability of modernization credit insurance was made the occasion for a wide vnriety of local and national activities to promote modernization and repair work. Business and professional groups connected with construction and local 'better housing committees conducted community enterprises of this type In several thousand cities nnd towns.

C, — While the Federal Housing Administration encourages in every possible way Ihe Improvement of construction standards and Die utilization of the services of competent architects and builders. It does nol supply plans or other architectural service to the public. From Ihe inception of the Federal Housing Administration's program, the construction standards established for projects applying for mutual mortgage insurance, have been published ami presented to the public, to builders, and the construction industry as a whole. However, suggestions as to building practices and desirable building standards which we have also developed, have been offered as suggestions and ere intended 'in no way to compete or conflict with the building industry or the architectural profession. Several private agencies have organized planning services and offer sets of stock plans for public purchase, but these agencies arc in no way associated with the Federal Housing Administration and are exclusively private enterprises. In encouraging the construction of small, low-priced homes the Housing Administration devised a series of five examples as illustrations of these homes. They were designed purely to show the feasi- slmtlar to our suggested, homes which appeared in Technical liul- letln No. 4. However, the Housing Administration has never furnished stock plans for iuiy ' private enterprise. In the case of tlio demonstration home program now being promoted by the lumber, brick, concrete, nnd other industries, the Federal Homing Administration lias merely acted in a cooperative capacity and Is taking no part in furnishing .plans or ether material. As in all operations private Individuals ami groups present their plans for approval If financing under the In- siired Mortgage System Is proposed. Aside from studying such plans for approval tile Housing Administration has no other part In the design and specifications entering any building project coining under the Federal Housing Administration's program. A rack for cooking implements .it ihe side of the range will not only keep these things handy but will also be an aid in drying them out thoroughly. A rack can - hold pot lids, too.
