Credit to Make.lmprovements
Will Speed Recovery, W.
E. Best Believes.
Relief given to the home owner will
turn the tide of the depression, ac
cording to William E. Best, president
of the United States Building and Loan
League, who declares that better times
would come with enactment of the
measure creating a system of Federal
home loan banks.
Homes Need Repairs.
"There are^ thousands of people in
this country who desire to repair, re
model or modernize their homes and
need funds for these operations,” says
Mr. Best. “In some localities there are
individuals who desire to take advan
tage of prevailing low prices of ma
terials and labor to construct homes.
"Mortgage money should be available
to would-be home owners, although
there is no need for the activities of
the speculative builder today. These
funds can be furnished by building
and loan associations and other home
financing institutions if they caa raise
money upon the mortgages they hold
at the present time. The home loan
bank system, if established, will provide
and release these funds. It will place
the local home-financing institutions in
position to supply long-time mortgage
"Repairing, remodeling and construe
I tion activities can provide substantial |
employment for thousands of men.
This Activity waits upon credit which
will be furnished by the home loan
bank system.
Delayed Action Deplored.
‘‘The need for such a system has
been apparent since 1919, when pro
posals originating in the Department
of Labor under Secretary W. B. Wilson
were considered by Congress. Build
ing and loan leaders feel that had such
a system been established earlier much
of the distress which pow faces the
home owner and the small saver might
have been avoided. During the last

essentially investment institutions and
are today serving their communltie*
