"Of lifetime-occupancy is being backed ; by the nation's major home-lending '. group. ' The innovation' conceivably could " -provide tremendous social and" financial benefits, because 70 per cent of households heads Over age 65 are homeowners, with a total equity of . more than $80 billion. ' , At the same time, it is estimated that nearly two-thirds of elderly married couples who own their homes have less than desired incomes, and could benefit from obtaining annuities based on their home equity. The total equity of such elderly homeowners is. sufficient to provide annual annuities in .excess of $5 billion.; : Under the '.'split equity" plan, the homeowner is assured a home for life, but in the meantime obtains regular , cash payments from the buyer. The latter is assured possession when the seller dies. The concept, long utilized ' in France, was popularized earlier this year by Prof. Jack M. Guttentag of the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, but had attracted little official endorsement-. : However, the new president of the . U.S. League of Savings Association, mm 1 MB xw X'-it-. '4 ) said at the group's annual convention here last week that "We're . not promoting it, but we're receptive to the chance to experiment." , "It isn't our main thrust but I like it," said John Hardin, who this year-heads the league, which this year will make about 80 percent of all loans on single-family houses. "We need to work out something to help older people in our society whose only alternative is to sell' said Hardin, president of the First Federal Savings and Laon Association of Rock Hill, S.C. .,. The new league president indicated, however, that the present regulatory climate would tend to inhibit development of the idea. He said the associations want flexibility to design mortgages to better fit the needs of borrowers but that the, mood of Congress, which oversees the work of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, limits them to fixed-term mortgages. , .. The associations also seek to experiment' with variable rate mortgages, with government-insured mortgages in "ring" neighborhoods on the edge of slums, and with mor-tages designed specifically for young home-buyers. Variable-rate mortgages are now offered by some state-chartered associations, in California especially, but not by federally chartered institutions. Rates under such plans rise and fall with money-market prices. CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING Aggie Hardware & Electric Co. 1205 Mora 6397761 l, I: ll r w. i -i,.J,,,. "'' Qf ficial results of November election TOPEKA (AP)-President Ford and Sen. Bob Dole defeated Democrats Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale by 72,331 votes in Kansas, official returns showed today.' Independent Eugene McCarthy and four other minor party candidates claimed only 2.6 per cent of the total state vote. Ford and Dole piled up 502,752 votes to Carter and Mondale's 430,421 in Kansas, based on official returns certified by the , State Canvassing Board. McCarthy led the remaining five presidential candidates on the Kansas ballot, with 13,185 votes. The board, with no challenges to consider, met for barely five minutes in Secretary of State Elwill Shanahan's office, to put its official certification stamp on the Nov. 2 general election results. The vote was unanimous among Mrs. Shanahan, Gov. Robert F. Bennett and Atty. Gen. Curt Schneider. In the closest Congressional races, U.S. ' Rep. Martha Keys won reelection to a a second term by an official margin of 5,699 votes over Republican Ross Freeman in the 2nd District, while young Democratic challenger Dan Glickman defeated veteran incumbent Rep.

In the three closest legislative races: Republican newspaper publisher John Chandler of Holton defeated Democratic, Sen. Dan Bromley of Marriage knot difficult to untangle (c) 1976 Chicago Daily News CHICAGO-James Wolfe said that is he must, he will make a career out of ending his unhappy marriage. "I'll not stop until I win or I die, whichever comes first," he said " bitterly. After his 64th court appearance, Wolfe found himself still legally married to the woman he has accused of cheating him into wedlock. Wolfe, 46, a- real estate broker, charged that his wife, Judith, had ' produced a phony death certificate for her first husband in order to marry him (Wolfe). , The first husband, Thomas Haf fner, of Denver, is not only, living but testified against her during a jury trial last March. The jury found her guilty of fraud and recommended the marriage .be annulled. Wolfe sought the an-. nullment because as a Roman Catholic he does not believe in divorce. However, Circuit Court Associate Judge Bernard Wolfe (no-relation) later -reversed the jury's" recommendation, saying fraud is not sufficient grounds for divorce. The judge now has 'reaffirmed his decision. - "I'm back wher I was," plaintiff Wolfe said, adding that he would appeal. , Meanwhile, Wolfe said the 3-year-long case has ruined him financially and he does not know how much he owes in attorney's fees. - "How can I make a living when I am practicing law here nine days a week?" he said outside the courtroom. His only consolation is that his wife, , who now lives in Fremont, Mich., agreed to let their 10-year-old son spend the Thanksgiving holidays with him. i, SPOT ADS Are Well Read- You Are Doing So NOW...They Cost Very Little.
