The scene of these hi-jinks will, be at the usual Teener.*' gathering spot, the American Legion Hall. Murray, KILT disc «3y EDWARD COWAN Waited Press fcteroetionat WASHINGTON (WPI) - Enthusiasts think cooperative housing is one solution for middle income people whose income is too high for public bo- using but who cannot afford to meet regular mortgage.' payments. For. such people, co-op booting is said to be a way to se- shelter at modest monthly coat and at the aarae tin* acquire; ownership. The Cooperative League of me U. S. A. estimate* that bout 70.000 families in 38 states livefa co-op noosing projects. ' But they represent a tiny portion of all middle incom* families. acconSng to the league. * reports Oat familiee with income* from $3,000 to $7,500 represent about half the nation's population of 177 ma- UOD. 'These families are theback- oone of America, but H.300,000 [46 per cent) of them do not own their own home*," the league says. Many of than "simply cannot afford to , buy a home M today's prices." These families- might Doable to acquire bora* ownership if they pooled their resource* to oooperacife veafer*. co-«p supponecs point CM. Uoet co-op housing baa been buik for more <h*n one family. But son* single-family oo-«s> projects haw also been bnik. in essence, oo-op housing selvee have joiner; arranged for the oo«e»n»eriOBs»d HnaBdngef Aeir dweffing. Teos. they eli- minate what might be called the landlord's profit. Co-op housing has been able to cut costs In another way- interest on mortgages. In 1950 the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) began insuring mortgages on co-op bousing. It set maximum interest rates below generallyprevaiUngmarket rates. These rates are now 41/2 per cent on rentalco-ophousineand 5 per cent on sales housing, A housing biH vetoed by President Eisenhower recently would have lifted these maximums to 5 1/4 and 5 3/4 per cent. • Co-op housing cuts monthly costs still further because the FHA allows repayment of coop -mortgages over 40 years. This Is a longer repaymait period than lenders' might accept on conventional loans. It lowers monthly payments. There is, however, the disadvantage tbat always attends long amortization of a mortgage -the borrower pays more in interest tbe longer he takes to repay the principal. Housing and other co-op enterprises usually follow the rule that the venture's affairs are controlled by the members. 'Each member in a co-op project has ana vote. In housing co-ops, a family counts as a member. Another common practice, especially among housing co-ops, is to return to tbe members any money surplus tbat accrues If aggregate monthly payments exceed the project's expenses. Tbe refund either takes the form of a lump sum or a reduction in future raomtWy charges. iockey and master c{ the wis3 crack and ad-lib, will bring with him the Electras, a group of entertainers, to add to the fun.
