The primary purpose behind this appropriation Is to furnish a source of mortgage money for the prospective home builder and thereby do something about reviving a very sickened, saddened portion of our nation's industry--namely, the building portion. Owing to the fact that commercial banks and other lending institutions have generally abandoned or withdrawn from the real estate mortgage field--something had to be done. In Home Loan Act. The result was a provision incorporated in the Home Owner's Joan Act for the organization of 'ederal savings and loan associations to be established in communities where the home financing field is not adequately served. The charter of these institutions is to be perpetual. Its powers are designed to carry the home mortgage burden in each community by ·he proper use (and under strict government supervision) of funds jathered by local subscription .to shares and supplemented by funds of the United States government Itself. . While this provision was created the same time as the Home Owner's Loan corporation, better known as HOLC, they are in no way connected. The Federal Savings and Loan associations are designed for permanency, while the HOLC is a temporary measure to care for distressed home loans only. So urgent was the need of distressed property owners throughout the United States for home mortgage relief, that all effort was concentrated in placing the pon- It's Time to RE-PAPER WE INVITE YOUR INSPECTION OF HUNDREDS OF NEW PATTERNS W.R.Mickey Ho. 103 SOUTH FEDERAL SHERWIH-WlLUMS The Amazing!

Subject to Rules. Under the Federal Saving and Loan, association's conditions, loans or new home construction will not be made direct to the borrower. Funds will be available through ocal "Federals" set up in accordance with the requirements of the government. Each approved association shall automatically become a member of the Federal Home xan bank and be subject to its rules and supervision. The local "Federal" shall raise ts capital in the form of payment m an authorized number of shares and by government subscription to (referred shares. Under the condi- ions set forth in the Home Owner's Loan act, the government will match dollar for dollar with local subscriptions up to a total of $100,100 for each chartered member of the Federal Savings and Loan association. The local association is to be a mutual organization operated by officers chosen by local share holders. No charter is to be granted without a thorough investigation of Jie person or persons making the application; nor will it be granted unless in the opinion of the government officials, there exists a real necessity for such an institution in the community to be served. The actual procedure of making a ioan will be practically identical with the custom now followed by most Building and Loan organiza- ions. Appraisals will be made and ie size of the loan determined by ocal officers of member associa- ions. The loan itself will be a long :erm type of loan, amortizing, in most cases, monthly. No one loan can be made for more than $20,00,0. Interest to Vary. A definite rate of interest has not been established for it will vary 11 different communities. It will be determined largely by the supply or volue of money available and the demand for loans. However, the ob- iect will be to make the rate as ow as possible and yet produce a 'air dividend for the investing share lolder. Salaries and operating expenses will not be allowed to be excessive or the association is to be regarded .s a community project. The advantages of the. plan are wo-fold, first, it gives the' investing public confidence in a local in- titution, for the government's presence and supervision insures safety. Second,-it gives the borrower who wishes: to build a home a source of rioney for this purpose, i-. ...... . ·;. '···-· That such a plan is needed is bo- nous, for heretofore many excellent eal * estate mortgage loans have ;bne begging for a lack of available unds. Then too, a hundred million dollars worth of government money supplemented by one hundred mil- ion dollars worth of private money can't fail to have a recuperative effect upon a weakened phase of our nation's industry.

This house looks much smaller than it really is. In addition to generously sized living quarters, four bedrooms are provided with over-all dimensions of only 26 by 48 feet. The front gable is not only most important to the appearance of the house; it contains the front entry and the stair, and the bathroom attached to the downstairs bedroom as well. The living room occupies the center of the plan, opening on. one side into a good-sized dining room, and on the other upon a sheltered porch. At the right, in front, is a bedroom; the correspondnig- position at the eft is given to the kitchen. The architect has provided three bedrooms on the second floor, the middle one especially interesting because the bay window in the living room runs through, and forms the chief point of interest for the master's bedroom. Stone is used for the front gable, and stucco in coral or light sienna for the remainder of the house. The roof should be slate in grays ranging from the blue gray to sepia gray. The canopy over the front door should be of metal, either bronze finished or in green copper. Red brick, mixed with a few purples and red browns, are used for the chimney. Cost of the house would probably be about 57,000. MODERN MASON CITY HOME The new home of Dr. and Mrs. H. E. Cunningham, 60 Crescent drive, incorporates virtually every feature of modern construction and design. Air conditioning is one of the chief improvements installed in this home. There are hardwood floors throughout, including the recreation room in the basement. Arne Holvig was the contractor. Old Doc Wire probably regards himself as a brain trustbuster.-Dallas News.

Savage REMODELING OF RESIDENCES HAS BIG POSSIBILITIES Small Change May Add Much to Life and Livability of Home. Up to 1930 this country was so lusy building new homes that no attention was paid old ones. After a forceful and emphatic collapse of this construction activity, a badly dazed building industry picked itself up, brushed off a little dust and started looking . around for soine- hing to replace the profitable per : od just preceding-. The phase chosen for the comeback was modernization. From that point on, home owners were beset with propaganda in the form of li- :erature, advertising and "before and after" pictures to make you dis- ontented, dissatisfied and thorough- y unhappy with your present abode. Good and Bad. The results were both good and bad. From it all we. learned one outstanding fact--that the possi- ilities for remodeling were unrestricted and no matter how hope- essly ugly the project, if properly laudled, an attractive result could be obtained. Unattractive houses, despaired of by owners, were transformed into attractive architectural gems by the magic touch of clever men. Possibilities unseen by :he layman were at once discernible to the trained eye of the expert. The transformation was not always an expensive one. More often :han not it was accomplished Lhrough some simple action the most modest budget could afford. Replacing Porch. Such simple work as replacing an unsightly' porch with a modem terrace; a nondescript doorway removed in favor of one of authentic design; rattly, old windows gave way to new ones with divided lights; nexpensive shutters added; bulky, overhanging cornices cut down; foundations concealed; attractive shingles placed over worn, decayed siding:; perhaps a new roof was added with a more interesting pitch ;o it; hundreds of things done to add to the general attractiveness and livability of the home. The possibilities for such improvements are limited only by the amount of money available for such work and the experience and ability of the person directing it. That it pays has been proved beyond doubt, for not only does it add ·o the life and livability of a home but it does so at much less expenditure than the cost of a new one. German Worth-SlS.OOO If a human being possesses full working powers he is worth from $10,000 to 513,000 to the German government. So declared Dr. Reiter chief of the German Health Office in an address at a recent meeting ol the Nazi Doctors' league in Halber. stadt. He emphasized that doctors should treat their patients accord ing to their valuta to the state. VERT BEST OF PLUMBING INSTALLED by J.F.GARVEYCO.
