It is similar to a mortgage, in which, however, there is not a third party.

"While these simplified definitions may aid in stripping away the 'fear of the unknown from home buying, they are not intended to be comprehensive explanations of the legal aspects which the words cover," Korb cautions. estate baffles you?

NORMAN Chabot Road from Clare-mont to the Temescal Lake is r.amcd for philanthropist Anthony Chabot, original water supplier of the City of Oakland. Derby Street from East 12th to East 14th Street, between 30th and 31st Avenue was named for E. M. Derby, a lumber merchant, whose home was the present site of Montgomery Ward. I Dimond Avenue from Sloan to Dimond Park, one long block north of Mac-Arthur Boulevard is named for Hugh Dimond, who in 1867 purchased the property from Henderson Lewel-ling.

This street was then the entrance way to his home. It was a one-story house when Mr. Lewelling lived there. When Dimond acquired it, he put on a second story. It burned in 1923.

The property consisted of 287 acres. Next week: The history of Adams Street. in 1 mum nil of new homes begun in the nation each year is a good indication of our economic health. It was believed, devoutly, that there were 1,378,500 non-farm housing starts in 1959. Government experts, professional pundits and congressmen charged with keeping an eye on housing adequacy used the figure when cerebrating and issuing statements.

Alas, all that thinking was done for nothing. The Census Bureau has now come up with a report entitled "New Series of Housing Starts -January, 1959, April, I960." This shows there were actu-, ally 1,530,900 non-farm starts last year 152,400 more than previously believed. You can surmise what a 10 per cent error does to the conclusions reached by the economists. Cause of the error is said to be faults in the sampling technique used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Census Bureau thinks that housing starts have been understated, perhaps by 20 per cent or more, for a decade.

A million homes built in the last 10 years may have been overlooked. The Bureau, taking over compilation of housing-start figures, has worked out a measuring system which it says is 98 per cent accurate, and will picture monthly fluctuations in home building. All-of which is news. Good news. The economic health of the nation is better than we thought it was.

About a million homes' worth. A FHA directive of two months ago requires less income to buy a more expensive house if the added cost on the mortgage is more than made up by savings in operating or maintenance costs. This savings could be brought about by use of better quality materials deeper roof overhangs to reduce painting, double-glazed windows, thicker insulation, longer-wearing floors, siding that requires less painting. House Garden has surveyed 424 top builders. "Will the directive cause you to put more maintenance saving equipment in your 1960 homes?" About 37 per cent said they wouldn't be influenced by the directive.

About 33 per cent said, "Yes!" About 29 per cent, yawning boredly, replied they've been using such maintenance-saving materials for a long long time. mm I 1 mm Vl SMCCUl ii Will, Mltll if Miliar) 3 Mod.l. $42.95 up FINEST BUILT IARBECUES WORLD!
