By GEORGE" TAYLOR AP Business Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Most bankers and home builders ex« pect 1968 to be a good year de* spite rising interest rates and higher building costs, a nationwide survey shows. Industry spokesmen gave their views in an Associated Press survey concerning the industry's prospects. Most of them expect 1968 to be better than 1967 but not without its problems. Some were less than enthusiastic. It's the availability of mortgage money and its costs that overhangs the housing industry — and the would-be home buyer. In Tallahassee, Fla., builder Al Albert, said the situation "in one word is rotten." Prices and money conditions have forced him out of the mass-produced home market he said. "It seems money is getting tighter each week," said Sam Teague of the Leon Federal Savings and Loan Association in Tallahassee. "The worst year in our history was 1966,',' Teague said, "and 1967 was good but it looks like 1968 is going to be about like 1966." In Detroit, builders are apprehensive about labor costs after current contracts expire May 1. "Undoubtedly home prices will go up," said William E. Stewart, secretary of the Detroit Association of General Contractors. "It's a very grim picture." But to most of the industry the year looks good. The National Association of Home Builders in Washington forecast 1.43 million housing starts this year, up from 1.3 million last year. "There's been a continued high level of building despite the Federal Reserve's discount increase, largely due to the pent- up demand," a home builders spokesman said. The survey showed that interest rates are heading toward the 8 per cent mark in some areas. The Federal Reserve boosted its discount rate one-half per cent in a money-tightening move at the height of the nation's gold loss crisis March 14. This increase in the lending rate the Federal Reserve charges member banks usually shows up in the individual banks' lending rates. The discount rate was raised again Thursday after the survey was completed. Some industry spokesman say peace in Vietnam would spark a building boom and loosen up mortgage money. "If peace is effected in Viet* nam, look for a fantastic land boom in Southern California," says Sanford R. Goodkin, a Los Angeles real estate consultant, John M, Wetmore, research director of the Mortgage Bankers Association of America in Washington, said peace would ease government military spending, lifting some heavy money*ralsing chores from the nation's capital markets and make more mortgage money available. 950 Are on My, April 19,196* Gets Recognition Strike in Arkansas LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A nationwide strike against the Bell System lias affected about 950 persons in nine Arkansas cities, including 200 members of Local 6390 of the Communication Workers of America. About 750 employes of the Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., left their jobs Thursday in respact for picket lines set up by mem'oers of Local 6390. The only persons actually on strike are installers for the Western Electric Co., a subsidiary of the Bell System that makes and installs equipment. Western Electric pickets were up Thursday at Little Rock, Conway, Fort Smith, Pine Bluff, Forrest City, Jonesboro, Fay- Conway, Fort Smith, Pino Bluff, Forrest City, Jonesboro, Fayetteville, Hot Springs and Camden, according to a Southwestern Bell spokesman. About 400 of the persons involved in the walkout are employed at Little Rock. Officials said they expected to maintain almost normal service as supervisors took over many jobs. Local dial service and long distance direct dialing are not expected to be affected immediately. Bell employes were reminded Thursday by Floyd R. Taylor, international staff representative of the CWA, that they are not on strike. He urged the employes to report to work each day to ma.J;e sure the picket line was still up.
