about the Jaw to ease home modernization and con into Washington Now many are to be answered by the man who knows most about it The GlobeGazette presents the first of a series of ex planatory articles by bun By JAMES A MOFFETT Federal Housing Administrator XCopjTight 1D34 by The Associated Preen ASHINGTON Aug 8 purpose of this series is to ex plain the mod ernization pro gram being launched by the federal housing a d m i nistration the object of which is to en courage where wide spread repairing and recondition ing of residen tial and proper ties Under the national housing act the federal housing administration is also authorized to set up ma chinery to Insure long term amor tized home mortgages but this part of our program will not be launched until a later date First of all let me explain that the government will not make loans to individuals or corpora tins for the improvement of their properties Loans to Banks The loans will be made by com mercial and industrial banks build ing and loan associations savings banks and other lending institu tions ard the governments part will be to insure the lenders against 100 per cent of all loss provided i the total of such loss does not ex ceed 20 per cent of the total volume of Where leans are obtained for the specific purpose of the lending Institution will not require collateral excepting in some cases where the state law requires the particular institution to loan only on mortgage The great bulk of financial ad vancesto be made under this plan will be in the form of character loans The borrower will get his loan solely on the basis of his ability to repay and his general reputation for honesty and fair dealing with out indorsers or comakers of the note Plan No Regimentation Another point I desire to em phasize is that the federal housing administration expects to resort neither to regimentation nor bally hoo We are not going to put pres sure on property owners to borrow for the purpose of making this cam paign a success Our only thought is that where properties are in need of repair and the owners are in a position to re pay the costs of such repairs out of regular income we shall offer practical cooperation in procuring the funds needed We want only such loans made as shall be first of all of definite value to the property owners them selves It will be readily recognized that the composite values of this under taking will be very great The im provement of individual properties will help the entire community in which they are located and this in turn will help the entire nation To Stimulate Demand These processes will stimulate de Sriand for innumerable products of the factory mine and field They will increase employment enhance real estate values and elevate the standard of
