If so that s about As logical As burning Down your own House because it s not everything you think it should be.

Despite the fact that she is not personally acquainted with any o f us at the press american she took it upon herself to bake and decorate the Beautiful cake. It f a tured five red roses and a miniature graduation Cap. We offer this Story As testimonial to the fact that the world is full of Good people. About drunk driving members of Congress who Are currently protest ing the Vietnam War might give some thought to this in Japan legislators Are considering a nation wide Law that would establish a maximum Manda tory prison sentence of two years for an automobile Driver involved in an Accident after having had several drinks. What s More the same penalty would apply to the person who provided the. Motorist with drinks. Does it sound extreme impossible effective perhaps. But America s tool in human life anti in jury caused by drunk Drivers is much higher than Vietnam Battle figures. This suggests Whitt we need stronger Federal legislation. The Prospect of a two year prison term for the Driver and his Host alike would tend to discourage the one More for the Road syndrome. Politicians who enjoy protesting to arouse voter support might consider protesting the Large High Way death rate. But admittedly it has less Appeal to some As the possibilities for political mud Sling ing Are slight. Realtors meeting in Houston Texas have named John Zach a president of Zachar realtors of Cedar rapids to the nine Man National Board o f directors of gallery of Homes. He was also made regional vice president of the Organiza Tion for the North Central United states. Gallery of Homes is a nationwide group of realtors who share a common image who utilize the picture gallery concept in real estate trans actions and who share proven ideas and programs. The Tei annual meeting of the gallery of Homes consists largely of four Days of work sessions concerned with improved to the Home buyer and seller mortgage financing listing and Selling techniques advertising and other real estate activities. Associates Are operating in Over 300 gallery of Homes offices in the United states and Canada including members in Hawaii. John Zachar told the press that although the real estate Market nationally is now in a quiet stage because of limited availability of mortgage Money the future for Home build ers and real estate companies is decidedly bullish. According to Zachar who has just returned from gallery meetings held at the Warwick hotel in Houston Texas the local real estate Market is bet Ter than in Many other areas of the country because of a More adequate Supply of Mort Gage Money. He cited the special Effort being made by local savings and loan associations to hold conventional Home mortgage rates to 8 per cent As helping to make the Cedar rapids Market one of the most favourable markets for buyers and Sellers today. He emphasized that in Many parts of the nation interest rates Are higher than they Are locally. An adequate Supply of conventional and magic Horn e mortgage Money now exists to take care of the current Market needs in Cedar rapids Zachar observed. He pointed out that while no shortage of living units exists locally or in most areas of the country at this time a definite shortage of newer single fam ily Homes within the Price Range of younger married Cou Ples is developing. The continuing population growth and the below average rate of new construction will require that real estate As a whole must get into an accelerated program catch ing up in the years ahead. John Zachar said that the recent lowering of the prime interest rate May be a sign of More adequate Supply of mortgage Money nationally than has been the Case in recent years that it will probably not result in any significant change in local interest rates.
