Ford Pushed For Additional $7.75 Billion For Home Buyers WASHINGTON (AP) - De- pite some misgivings, the ad- inistration's top housing offi- al is urging President Ford to gn a bill earmarking 57.75 bil- on in federal money to help ome buyers. However, James T. Lynn, ecrelary of Housing and Uran Development, warned in a ession'With reporters Wednes- ay that it will be some, time efore the housing industry can evive. The industry currently is arting new homes at a rate quivalent to 1.13 million units or the whole year. Even with new federal mon- y, which would come on top of 19 billion in federal funds al- eady pumped into the housing narket, Lynn said he expects it o be 1975 before construction ctivity picks up. And even with helpful devel- pments in the economy, new tarts next year probably will e below the 2 million units ,ynn's agency has estimated .re needed annually to provide Ke nation with decent housing. The housing aid legislation, vhich represents the first re ponse by Congress to Ford's economic proposals last week vould authorize the govern ment to use its borrowing muscle to provide below-mar set loans for home buyers. The version sitting on Ford's desk contains a formula tha egs the interest rate for home myers to the rates the Treas ury pays for its money. Lynn said he would have pre erred complete flexibility setting interest rates, but de spite the formula in the bill 'on balance, its advantage outweigh its disadvantages." Ford had said in his econom :c address that he is preparei .o pump $13 billion into th lousing market quickly to pro vide enoush loans to cover 100 0 new houses at a cost to the vernment of $150 million at rrent interest rates. Lynn said he will wait to see lat developments occur in the Busing and money markets here deciding whether to recom end spending any more of the uthorized money. Meanwhile, the federal Home oan Bank Board announced at the average purchase price a new home jumped by $2,0 to $43,100 in September, nd the effective interest rate n home loans rose to an aver- e of 9.2 per cent compared to 09 per cent a month later. That means the average ome purchased last month re- uired an $11,600 down pay- ent and monthly payments of 258 over 26 years. A year ago, the average new ouse cost $9.000 down and $21( month for 27 years. EXTENSION Homemakers Clubs iiiniiiiiiinn winuniiii!
