Taker Part Of Home Credit Restrictions Relaxed Jury Acquits Pair Accused Of Kidnaping Bryant, Milum Freed NEW hower YORK—(INS)—The Eisen- government's over - all housing administration today repealed part of the credit restrictions imposed on the housing industry last July to curb inflationary pressures. Effective immediately, the Federal Housing Administration announced removal of a two per cent boost on down payments on new housing projects built under the government's broad anti-slum program. Announcement of the changed credit rules was made by FHA Commissioner Norman P. Mason in a speech prepared for the 43th annual convention Of the National Association of Real Estate Boards in New York. Tho action represented a relatively minor modification in the program, since homes usually purchased under the FHA or veterans programs are not affected. FHA and the Veterans Administration will continue to require most buyers to pay off their loans in 25 years instead of the 30 years allowed before the restrictions. And the two per cent down payment. boost on these types of home loans will remain in effect. 2. The relaxation will provide a new shot in the arm for the administration's urban renewal program by making it easier for builders to obtain financing for rehabilitation of apartments in slum areas and low-cost new housing v for families evicted from slums. Realtors and other building in- dustrv leaders who have ,crilici?.eri the July restrictions as • a move I that would slow down the home But officials said that FHA's ac- building boom, hailed Mason's an^ tion was significant because: .1.

A Leflore County grand jury yesterday declined to indict white half-brothers Roy Bryant, 24, and J. W. Milam. 36, on charges of kid- naping Till from the cabin of his sharecropper uncle. Less than a month ago, a trial jury in a neighboring county found the two half-brothers innocent of murdering Till on grounds there was reasonable doubt about identification of a battered body pulled from the Tallahatchie river. Who Did It? "The question now arises," said Executive Secretary Roy Wilkins of the NAACP in a statement in New York yesterday, "since Mississippi jurors have determined that Milam and Bryant did not kidnap and murder young Till, who did commit the crimes?" Wilkins said the grand jury action,, which cancelled $10,000 bonds posted by the two men, "comes as no surprise to anyone acquainted with the administration of justice in Mississippi." Mother Undecided Till's mother, Mrs. Mamie Bradley of Chicago, commented "just about everything has run out on me now. I don't know.what to say. .1 don't see how they could fail to indict those men." She said she was thinking of filing a.civil suit but Jhad no money, and further action would be up to the NAACP. Mrs. Bradley was in a ' recent tiff wilh the Negro organization, -which dropped her from a proposed fund raising tour of 11 western cities for demanding a $5,000 fee or one-third of the proceeds, plus expenses. At the murder trial, she identified the body as her son. Defense witnesses, including a doctor and an undertaker, disputed the identification, contending the body was in the water • too long to be Till. At nearby Webb, Miss., a smiling Milam said he was "happy it's all over." Bryant could not be reached for comment. ' ' At the Nassau County Jail .yesterday, Paul W. Wirths, 22, signed an earlier oral confession that he was on the roof over Mrs. Ann Woodward's bedroom when she fired a shotgun blast which costi"- the life of her 35-year-old husband Mrs. Woodward. 39, said fear of a prowler — and hearing a noise- caused her to fire into the darkened hallway of her Oyster Bay Long Island home. Woodward and his wife occupied separate bedrooms. Wirths, when first picked up and accused of burglarizing another home in the area, told of trying to break into the Woodward home —but not during the early morning hours of'Sunday, Oct. 30,' when Woodward was shot.. Three days ago'he changed his story. His attorney, Alvin ' Korngold, claimed Wirths was susceptible to suggestions and that police might have influenced his support of Mrs. Woodward's story of accidental shooting.
