CouldRemove Some Neighborhood Racial Barriers WASHINGTON (AP) New policies hammered out by the government and a major association of real estate appraisers could Dr. M. f>. Niedens Chiropractic Office 811 Main Garden City Hours K:30-5:30 Thurs.-Sat.S:30-12 remove some of the barriers to neighborhood racial integration. The policies say, in effect, that the race of owners and neighbors will not be assumed to affect property values.

Under pressure from the government, the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers agreed to take several steps to eliminate race as a factor in evaluating property. The agreement, approved by a federal court in Chicago last Wednesday, settles the government's civil rights suit against the institute, a trade association of several thousand real estate appraisers and analysts. Officials of the Justice Department and the Department of Housing and . Urban Development were involved in negotiating the settlement. Justice Department lawyers say they are pursuing the suit against the other defendants — the Society of Real Estate Appraisers, .which has about 18,000 members, and two trade associations for home mortgage lenders, the United States League of Savings Associations and the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. In the suit filed in April 1976, the government charged the defendants with violating the 1968 Fair Housing Act by automatically down-grading property values after black families moved into white neighborhoods. Without admitting any illegality, the institute has agreed that "racial, religious and ethnic factors are unreliable predictors of value trends or price variance." The institute also agreed to instruct its members that they cannot assume a house in an all-white neighborhood is more valuable because the neighborhood is white. Nor can they assume that the value of a house decreases when a black family moves in next door. Gqvernment lawyers said the past practice encouraged white families to move out of newlyintegrated neighborhoods as they saw the appraised value of their property drop. The practice also made it difficult for blacks to get mortgages to buy homes in while neighborhoods, they said. This is because lenders put great weight on the appraiser's valuation in determining the amount of the mortgage they will approve or whether they will approve any at all, they added. So in some cases, department lawyers said, the selling price of a house might be far below the appraised value, and the potential buyer would Sunflower Excursions, Inc.
