Senate Approves Farm Price Fixing Red Prosecutor 1 Washington, April 13.— (A.P.)— President Roosevelt added to his emergency program on Capitol hill today the proposal to refinance the mortgages on small homes. In another special message to congress, he asked for legislation to permit readjustment of existing mortgage debts together with a postponement of both interest and principal payments in cases of “extreme need.” He suggested action along the same lines as the refinancing of agricultural mortgages now before congress with a bond issue to meet the needs. He told congress the plan of settlement “will provide a standard which should put an end to present uncertain and chaotic conditions that create fear and despair among both homo owners and investors.” Hills were introduced in senate and house at once to carry out his recommendations.

Washington, April 13.—(A.P.)— Creation of a permanent system of federal savings and loan associations as well as an emergency $2,-ooo.ooo,unu corporation to refinance homo mortgages would be authorised under the bill recommended to congress today by President Roosevelt The bill would authorize subscription of $100,000,000 by the government for setting up a permanent system of federal associations “to provide mutual thrift institutions in which people may place their savings and invest their funds, and in order to provide for the financing of hoiues.” These institutions would be iu the nature of building and loan associations, but the bill provides they should not be estt.blished in any community unless the home loan bunk board feels such community “is insufficiently served by local thrift and home-financing institutions.” Emergency Provisions. Emergency provisions of the bill for refinancing existing home mortgages are drafted along the lines of I lie pending agricultural refinancing measure and are designed to save tt ousands of city home owners who are burdened with debts. An home owners loan corporation would be created under the federal home loan board with a capitalization of $200,000,000 subscribed by the federal government. Funds would be obtained through the reconstruction corporation. The home loan corporation would be authorized to issue tax exempt bonds up to $2,000,000,000 at 4 per i out interest, which would bo exchanged for existing mortgages. The got eminent would guarantee the interest but not the princlpul. Bonds exchanged for mortgages would be limited to so per cent of the value of the mortgaged home, as appraised by the corporation. Refinancing would be limited to homo* valued nt $10,000, or less, occupied by not moro than three families. Any mark down in the valuo of the delil accepted by the mortgage would he credited to the mortgager. IS-Year Amortization. The home owner would amortize Ids debt to the corporation within 1."» years, with interest at 5 per cent. The hoard would have authority to grant a. three-year e>tension of time for payment of principal or interest. In refinancing the home owner, the corporation could advance cash for the payment of tuxes or assessments or provide for necessary maintenance or repairs. (’ash advances for these purposes also would be made to home ownei. w ho e prop* rty w as not RkOTtagaged up to SO per cent of the value. Federal savings and loan association* would he set up under rules and regulations prescribed by the home loan bank board "giving primary consideration to the l»est practices of local mutual thrift and home financing Institutions." “But no such association shall be Incorporated by the board," the bill says, “unless in its Judgment the community to be served is insufficiently served by local thrift and home-financing institutions. “Such associations shall be authorized to make loans upon homes secured by duly recorded home mortgages nnd to invest their fund* In obligations of the I'uiteil Staten an t in federal home loan hank bonds ” tithe Provisions* Each association would automat* ¡oull) become a member of the federal home loan bank of its district in the same manner us other institutions.

There it will be exposed until tomorrow, I Good Friday. Thus Pius XI, on the 1000th an- 1 niversary of Christ's institution of i tho Eucharist, restored to the Roman Catholic world one of its most ! picturesque and traditional cere-| monies. The ritual inaugurated the three most sacred days of Holy week. It was one of several symbolic acts abandoned by Pius’ predecessors ' through the past 63 years. He is reviving them as part of the extraordinary Holy year program ho initiated April 1. Surrounded by high dignitaries of tho church and a few invited guests, he first said mass in the Sistine chapel. This chapel is famous for Michael Angelo's frescoes covering the barrel vaulted ceiling and his ! “l-nst Judgment” on the altar wall. I Then, accompanied by the sacred college of cardinals and a uniformed I company of noble and Swiss guards, I he carried the sacrament slowly in ' procession to the Pauline chapel, where it was ceremoniously uncovered. j Tomorrow, he will take it back to tho Sistine chapel where he again will say a special mass. The bells of Rome’s 400 churches greeted Holy Thursday this morning. but. stopped ringing after a few minutes to remain silent until Saturday noon. The Catholic world is now mourning Christ's passion and | death. Thousands of pilgrims, including | many Americans, attended services in St. Peter’s, where Cardinal Pacellt, high priest, officiated. Other thousands went to the ! Cathedral of St. John Uteno, in Home, to venerate tho table which, it is said, was used at the lust supper. They also suw two skulls reputed to bo those of Saints Peter and Paul, a part of tho sponge said I to have been lifted to Christ's lips when be suffffercd thirst, and other : prized relics.
