will interpose no objections to the
purchase of the masonry units there
by the proposed Veterans’ Co-op

cated the required 25 per cent of
the occupants will okeh the plan
it was learned last night.
The petition read as follows:
“We, the undersigned, residents of
Lake Forest, Wilmington, N. C., a
War Housing project administered
by the Federal Public Housing ad
ministration, interpose no objec
tions to the purchase of said de
velopment by the Veterans' Co
operative Housing corporation, a
non-profit corporation composed of
honorably discharged members of
the Armed Forces of the United
States, all residents of Wilmington,
New Hanover county, North Caro
lina.’’
According to the requirements of
the FPHA, at least 25 per cent of
the present occupants must signify
their willingness for the purchase
and a number equal to an adition
al 35 per cent who are potential
purchasers must sign a similar pe
tition which will also request the
corporation be allowed to buy the
project and further signifying their
desire to own stock in the coopera
tion.

The chapter is expected to be
granted within a few days.
Included in the articles were pro
; visions for the purchase, sale, rent

title to the 584 masonry units, the
community building and the com
mercial building at Lake Forest.
Payments by participants in the
cooperative will run consider

rental now charged, spokesmen for
the group report. An added feature
in the contract to buy will be that
in case the vet must move, either
leaving the city or to another loca
tion, he will give the corporation
30 days in which to buy out his
investment, thus realizing the ad
ded benefit of a return on his
money which he does not enjoy as
a renter.
Information received late Friday

fair appraisal price, before offer
