TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARKJ COURIER NEWS PAGE THIRTEEN New FHA Racial Ruling Clarified Policy Won't Bar Owner f rom Picking The Tenanr He Wants 6—M't— aiili-dis- . WASHINGTON Dec The FHA says the new "nandjig or homes will not bar a properly ownpv from picking the tenant he wants, Nor will it attempt to control the owner In selecting thooscs lo sell buyer lf$he properly. The new rule is expected lo go into effect In about (30 days. It wil- bun federal home mortgage guarantees where written restrictive covenants are placed on record after thu effective date. The policy was announced last Friday by Solicitor General Philip B. Perlman, with the rmthortea- tion of President Truman. Confusion arose over how it will operate. In an attempt to clarify the situation, PHA Commissioner Franklin D, Richards sent explanatory statements to PHA field offices for their guidance. The aim, Richards said, it lo bring the government's policies in line with Supreme Court decisions that, although individuals mny he free to impose or comply with restrictive racial covenants, government suppor^ Ol covenants is contrary to the ijuulic policy and they cannot be enforced in cotrrt. Kxplaim Itiilts Richards salt! the new rules will: 1. "Apply only to properties on which racially restrictive covenants are filed on record after Hie effective date set. 2. "Require Hie mortgagor to cer- tifv that until the insured mortgage is paid In full or the contract of 'mortgage) Insurance otherwise terminated, he will not file for record any restriction upol) the sale or occupancy of the mortgaged property on the basis o( race, creed or color 03- execute any agreement, lease or conveyance which Se< these two flat Grant lavatories today—they're gleam- white —easy to clean~mad« of <]iial- porcelain enanie on cast iron—!IBV« lo operate D latest controls.

Close Check Needed When Buying House Before buying an old house, make sure It is structurally sound. The fohndation, the roof and the framing should be checked closely to determine whether expensive repairs would lie necessary. Settling of n foundation usually can be delected by plaslcr cracks tn Interior walls. Most foundations will have settled slightly, but this Is not serious provided the sellllng stopped after a few years. Big new plaster cracks, however Indicate that Die settling has not stoppen. Uneven floors, sticking doors and sagging door frames nve other signs of severe fmmdatloi weakness. From within the basement cheek lire foundation walls for cracks niitl tor dampness. An easy way to Inspect Hie roof Is to examine the underside o( Un- roof deck. If Ihe roof leaks, there probably will be water stains on the deck sheathing. Water marks and paint blisters on ceilings am: walls sometimes are caused by leaky roof, too. If the roof deck Is sound, the condition of the roofing materia on an old house is not of prime importance, because rerooflug is nol expensive. Asphalt shingles, which also add the new charm of color to an old dwelling, ordinarily can Be used for rcroodng without removing the worn covering. When inspecting the framing, look lirst at the joints. Light johil-s Indicate the framing Is flimsy throughout Ihe house. Check slllr for termllcs and "dry rot." Make sure framing is uallc-d prop erly. This can be checked in tin basement. If the cross braces between Joists nre ^nailed solidly, it usually can be assumed that nailing in other parts of the house also Is satisfactory. 'Rusty' Water Avoided By Checking Tank Heat Rusty hot water can be prevented by holding the temperature of the water in the storage tank below the boiling point of 212 degrees. In mast plumbing systems with galvanized Iron pipes or hot water tanks, there Is always some rust. It will remain on the sides of Ihe tank and pipe.s unless the water boils. When the water boils, lire rust is loosened and carried to the failceLs. In non-rusting types of plumbing, Real Estate Transfers Cluck.isawba District) H. c. and May Baker lo limco ind Lucille Byrrt.
