Couple awarded for credit rate slur WASHINGTON (AP) A court here has ordered the Ford Motor Credit Corp, to pay in damages to a Laurel, MD., couple whose refusal to pay for a defective new auto damaged their credit rating The libel verdict against the financing arm of Ford came late Monday after a five-day trial and IVz days of jury deliberation. Solomon Margolis, lawyer for the couple, Reginald and Cyl Holland, said the case illustrates how it can "poison the whole credit process" when a customer with a defective product seeks equity by not paying for it. Trial testimony records that the dispute began one month after the Hollands, bought a 1970 Ford Maverick in April, 1970, for' They financed through Ford Motor Credit and paid the rest in cash. Soon afterward, the testimony shows, the car's engine "blew up" while the couple was driving. The car was towed to a Ford dealer and left there. The couple complained to the Ford dealer who sold them the car and to Ford Motor Credit. The dealer was unresponsive and Ford Motor Credit said the condition of the car was not its problem, only the financing. The Hollands refused to make any payments and in August, 1970 Ford Motor "repossessed" the car. The car received a new motor and was sold by Ford but, by the company's account, the proceeds ifell short of what the Hollands owed. Ford wrote the Hollands saying "if legal action is required to collect this, your local credit bureau will include this matter in your credit but the Hollands were not told the credit bureau already had been notified. The Hollands settled the debt for thinking the problem had been resolved. They were surprised when later their application for credit was rejected by a commercial credit plan. Low-cost public housing shortage hits Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) The city is facing a shortage of low-cost public housing, with a waiting list approaching 500 famiiies, says Ron Kolbus, executive director of the Edmonton Housing Authority. Another 200 names will undoubtedly be added to the list by June, he added in an interview. One reason for the shortage is a dispute between the city and the province over ownership of public housing, says Stan Rodway, acting director of the Edmonton Community Housing Organization. At least one 90-unit project being developed by organization "will need a resolution of this problem before they are ready to said Mr. Rodway. Ron Hayter, an Edmonton alderman, said Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell "has no grasp at all of the housing situation" and "if we allow the province to take over ownership of public housing, it could well open the door to patronage situations." Aid. Una Evans agrees, saying the province's bid for public housing ownership is "just one more example of the province trying to get into municipal authority." Meanwhile, Mr. Russell said the city's stand on ownership is unreasonable in light of the province's 40-per- cent contribution to the ongoing operating deficits of public housing projects. Customers hoarding milk tokens EDMONTON (CP) Widespread customer hoarding of tokens -will cut into Edmonton dairies' profits when milk prices rise April 15. John Turner, general manager of Palm Dairies, said today. Almost all of the company's tokens are out and few are being used, he said. "They stopped coming back as soon as the increase was announced. It happens every time. We'll just have to pick up the loss." The public utilities board announced a three cent a quart increase for fluid milk April 1. Bill McBride. general manager of the northern Alberta Dairy Pool, said some customers have accused the company of holding back tokens until the new price lakes effect. BUYING A NEW HOME IN 74?
