Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 -THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, October Mortgage rate subsidy plan may be broadened OTTAWA (CP) Faced with a tailspin in housing construction, Urban Affairs Minister Barnett Danson says he is considering broadening the government's mortgage rate subsidy plan for new home buyers. The program would be along the lines of the Liberal elec- tion proposal to double the money available under the assisted home ownership program (AHOP) by adding private funds to government aid, he indicated in an inter- view Friday. The minister said the pro- posal is one of many before the cabinet to cope with the downturn in housing activity in recent months.

Alberta Health and Social Development But Mr. Danson is clearly leaning strongly in that direc- tion as he suggests a limited amount of government money could shake loose a larger amount of private money for new home purchasers. William Teron, Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) president, said in Montreal Thursday that if housing construction drops well below'an annual rate of starts in early 1975 the government will intervene heavily. Mr. Teron suggested public subsidies could be linked to private capital to permit many more Canadian families to buy homes of their own. Under such a plan, private lenders lending money at the current CMHC direct loan rate of 11.25 per cent could get subsidies bringing the effec- tive rate down to eight per cent for AHOP borrowers, a corporation spokesman said Friday. AHOP also permits ad- ditional monthly payments up to ISO to new home purchasers to further lower the effective interest rate. This requires legislation and approval of the finance minis- ter, the spokesman said. the July 8 federal election campaign, former ur- ban affairs minister Ron Bas- ford said the government wanted to encourage private lenders to put about million into AHOP, about the same as the federal contribution. Mr Danson said the "budget squeeze is on pretty tight" but housing is a top priority in government plans.

Human error involved in aviation accidents EDMONTON (CP) Culture Horst Schmid lays the Alberta government 'is considering how it provide financial support for the province's book publishing industry. Mr. Schmid said Friday that aid could take the form of government guaranteed credit amounting to several million dollars, along with grants to publishers and authors to finance publication of Alberta writings. He said the province has been studying plans in effect in Quebec and Ontario, which are currently the only provinces with aid programs for the book publishing in- dustry. The minister said that aid of the new policy would be to assist existing publishers, and to attract new ones with the objective of self sufficiency in the literary arts. Edmonton publisher Mel Hurtig said the book publishing industry has always suffered from lack of working capital, and that the government proposal is welcome. He said that commercial financial institutions are reluctant to lend to publishers because return on investment is relatively low. An advisory and review board, made up of represen- tatives of business, publishing, the arts, and the department of culture, youth, and recreation, would pass judgment on applications for assistance.

OTHER ITEMS TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION BANFF (CP) Human error is involved in about 85 per cent of aviation accidents and in many of these cases medical' problems are a contributing factor, a group of civil aviation medical ex- aminers were told Friday. Dr John Kirkbride, regional medical services director for the federal health department, also told the ex aminers gathered in con- junction with the Alberta Aviation Council annual meeting that millions, people now are affected by the quality of the medical -ex- aminer determining whether or not a pilot is medically lit to fly. He said that because the ac- cident rate has not kept pace with the huge increase in fly- ing activity, medical and other safeguards must be effective. Dr. David Petit, an aviation medical officer, said heart disease was the "most prominent" problem among flyers and involved 41.7 per cent of the cases referred to the medical review board last year.
