BUSINESS IMPROVED
Word is received by the Federal
Housing Administration from Albu
querque, N. Mex., that business "con
tinues better than 1929, and no work
men are available." Building Mr
mite for December, 1933, were $20,
391, as ocmpared with a total of $230,
686 for December, 1934. Eighty per
cent of the building permits granted
In 1934, it was said, were made since
the inception of the better housing
campaign.
Historic Home Purchased

occupies the site of the home of Isaac Pierce, who built Pierce Mill. —Star Staff Photo.
Residential Property Values
Are Stabilized by H. O. L. C.
Federal Bank Review Details Benefits
Derived Through the Removal of Dis
tressed Holdings From Forced Sale.
The extent to which residential
property values in the United States
have benefited by the Home Owners'
Loan Corp. during the past 16 months
is indicated in an article in the cur
rent issue of the Federal Home Loan
Bank Review.
With close to 800,000 distressed
properties removed from forced sales,
and values fixed, on the basis of a
new long-term loan, the tremendous
stabilizing Influence of the corpora
tion upon real estate is evident, ac
cording to the review. It is shown
that to date the corporation has com
pleted detailed appraisals on more
than a million homes, on nearly 800.
000 of which refinancing loans have
already been granted. The corpora
tion has thus placed a value on one
out of every ten owner-occupied urban
homes in the country.
Appraisals Present Problem.
When the Home Owners' Loan
Corp. began lending, with the power
to loan up to 80 per cent of its own
valuation of the properties, appraisals
presented one of its greatest single
problems, the article states. The
corporation was under obligation,
first, to the Government as owner ol
the corporation; second, to the home
owner in distress, and third, to the
real estate market, present and future,
This condition required the estab
lishment of sane, permanent value*
higher than knock-down depressior
prices, yet uninfluenced by run
away boom-time figures. There was
the opportunity to eliminate for the
future the wide swings that hav«
characterized home real estate prices
There was the urgent necessity tc
build up a competent Nation-wide
appraisal personnel.
Around a nucleus consisting of the
membership of the American Inti
tute of Real Estate Appraisers, the
corporation, from the ranks of the
real estate business, has trained and
developed a qualified staff of ap
praisers which, at its peak, numbered
several thousand, most of whom were
independent fee appraisers. A group
of experienced regional appraisers is
maintained in the field investigating
appraisal personnel, making spot
! checks, and reviewing valuations.
! An additional check on accuracy and
: fairness is provided through out
standing local advisers.
New System Advantageous.
The establishment of a new. more
exact science of appraisal and the
attainment of professional standards
by a large body of appraisers are re
garded as highly advantageous to the
j future of sound real estate invest
ment in this country.
Values are determined from three
foctors, first, present market value;
second, replacement value minus de
preciation, and, third, capitalization
i of average annual rentals over the
past 10 years. The two latter ele
ί ments insure appraisals materially
; above the depression market prices.
"Loose appraisals in the past have
been costly," the article continues.
"With the revolution in our mortgage
practices which is now in process
they would be fatal. Emphasis from
all sides is on the long-term amor
tized mortgage, representing a high
enough percentage of the value of the
property to eliminate the need for a
second mortgage. This is the corner
stone of the Government s home
I financing program. Home owners
; are demanding it with increasing in
! slstence. A high percentage of value
: can be loaned with safety only when
ι that value has been carefully de
I termined."
2-YEAR MORATORIUM i
MEASURE OPPOSED
Realtors and Savings Banks
Fight Suspension of Mort
gage Foreclosures.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
BALTIMORE, February 9.—Repre
sentatives of the Real Estate Board of
Baltimore, savings banks and real
estate companies appeared before a
legislative committee at Annapolis this
week to oppose a measure which would
declare a moratorium for two years on
foreclosure of mortgages on which
taxes and interest have been paid.
C. Philip Pitt, representing secre
tary of the realty board, told the com
mittee he felt the measure would do
harm now by "drying up the mort
gage market," which, he said, is "Just
beginning to open up."
"I think passage of such a measure
would be an open invitation to people
able to pay to take a two-year holi
day," Pitt said. "If it is passed, sav
ings institution would withdraw from
the mortgage field, and without them
recovery will be hindered."
In answer to a question, Pitt said he
did not know of many foreclosures.
Most of the companies, he said, were
"going along" with mortgagors.

DROP IN BUILDING
January Volume Slightly Under
Same Month in 1934 in
Valuation Permits.
BALTIMORE, February 9.—Build
ing operations in Baltimore last month
were slightly smaller in volume than
In the corresponding month of last
year, according to the valuation of
permits. New improvements, addi
tions and alterations, for which per
mits were Issued last month, reached
a total of $372,120, as contrasted with
$445,080 for January, 1934. The total
for last month also was below that
for the preceding month of December,
when the valuation was $390,200.
New Improvements last month were
valued at $119,800; additions, of which
there were 71, totaled $73,100. and
273 alterations amounted to $117,200.
Home construction was represented
by permits for only eight dweUinge,
valued at $18,000.

BUILDING REVIVAL
DUE TO CONTINUE
Merchandising Specialist
Sees Signs of Renewed
Activity.
Evidences of substantial Improve
ment in building are cited by Stanley
B. Wildrick, specialist in building
product merchandising, in an article
in the current issue of Advertising and
Selling Magazine.
"The building giant, long hibernat
ing, has at last revealed indisputable
signs of renewed activity," says Mr.
Wildiick. "Building statistics them
selves show favorable developments;
studies by governmental and private
agencies reveal an almost alarming
need for new buildings of all kinds;
and the active men in this business,
basing their judgments upon long
years of experience, are certain the
corner has been turned and that we
are on our way to a long term of
building activity.
"All businesses have cycles." he
points out, "and the building industry
is not the least definite chart-maker of
the lot. The building boom of the
1870's, the marked progress of home
building during 1900-1910 and the big
boom of 1922-1928, all contribute evi
rence that building activity comes in
cycles. The outlook now is on a long
term basis, not merely expectations for
1935.
"One other thing which must be
kept in mind is the vast number ol
changes in this field during the last
Jew years. I.umber dealers, for in
stance. numbered about 26.000 in 1929.
whereas only 21.000 are In existence
today; of this 21.000 about 30 per cent
are new owners since 1929. Architec
tural offices have an annual turnover
of approximately 25 per cent even in
normal times, so a bare nucleus of the
1929 architects are doing business at
the old stand today. It would also be
my opinion that less than half the
good contractors of five years ago still
remain in business and have good
credit ratings. All In all, the building
industry has thousands of new faces
in it; these are the men to whom the
public looks for guidance in meeting
home building and repair problems.

FARM NEED GREAT
FOR MODERNIZING
Around Billion Dollars Be
lieved Required for Build
ings and Equipment.
Around a billion dollars Is the esti
mated need for modernizing the
homes, barns, other outbuildings, wells,
windmills, fences and necessary per
manent equipment on the farms of
the United States, most of which may
be financed by modernization loans In
sured by the Federal Housing Admin
istration.
Farm homes alone need $576,687,000
for thorough modernization, accord
ing to estimates based on a survey of
352 counties in 46 States made by the
Bureau of Home Economics, Depart
ment of Agriculture. The outbuild
ings, fences and permanent farm
equipment require a similar amount,
the survey reveals.
Credit Plan Helps.
It is anticipated that the current
year's building construction in farm
areas will reach an imposing volume,
due to two influences.
One is the operation of the Mod
ernization Credit Plan of the Federal
Housing Administration, together with
better housing campaigns being car
ried forward in close to 6,000 com
munities.
Another is the fact that a gain
of 50 per cent in the farmer's pur
chasing power last year over 1933 is
shown in a report recently made pub
lic by Louis H. Bean, economic adviser
in the Agricultural Adjustment Ad
ministration. The farmer is in much
better shape from a standpoint of cur
rent returns, according to Mr. Bean,
than he has been at almost any time
in the past three years.
Southeast Leads.
In the survey the Southeastern
rural section shows the greatest need,
the sum necessary for restoration and
building totaling around $186,300,000.
The small white and negro tenant
farms prevailing in this section, to
gether with the long period of low
prices for the staple crops of cotton
and tobacco, contributed to the large
total.
The wheat and corn belts followed
the South closely, with a figure of
$108,000,000. Low prices for wheat
through several years, combined with
the drought, have acted as checks on
improvements or new buildings in this
section.
Texas and Oklahoma showed a need
for around $60,700,000, low prices for
cotton also being a major factor here.
Paint was needed by 70 per cent of
the farm houses In Georgia. South
Carolina, Alabama and Louisiana, and
by 44 per cent of the farm houses In
Texas and Oklahoma. In Iowa only
2 per cent of the farm houses needed
paint.
Rust Brings Heavy Loss.
An annual loss of more than $1,
000,000,000 is caused by rust, accord
ing to an authoritative source. The
use of non-corrodible materials in
roofing repair, replacement of pipes
and fixtures, insert screens, lighting
fixtures is suggested as a means of
overcoming losses from rust and cor
rosion.
PROPERTY LEASES
Firm of F. B. Sari Consumated
$105,000 Recently.
A total of $105,000 In property
leases has been consummated by the
real estate Arm of Fernando R. Sari,
16Θ9 Park road, within the last few
weeks, it was announced today.
Sari said that 3114 Fourteenth

Beyda for Sebastian P. Ambrogi.
Other leases are as follows: Store in

SCOPE OF HOUSING
Various Measures Are In
troduced in the Senate
and House.
The scope of Federal Housing Ad
ministration activities would be ex
panded considerably under bills intro
duced in the Senate and House Thurs
day by Senator Fletcher, Democrat, of
Florida, and Representative Steagall,
Democrat, of Alabama.
Perhaps the most Important change
advocated is one that would amend
Title III of the· Federal housing act,
decreasing the capitalization of pro
posed National Mortgage Associations
from five million dollars to two mil
lion. The object of the mortgage as
sociations. which would be backed by
private funds, would be to furnish
liquidity for insured mortgages.
The mortgage associations would
trade In the insured mortgages which
are being made under Title II of the
housing act. Building men and
bankers alike have contended that the
delay in setting up the mortgage as
sociations has retarded the new build
ing program which it is believed the
insured mortgage would foster. The
high capitalization of these mortgage
associations—five million each—pro
vided in the housing act, has made it
almost impossible to establish them.
It is believed this phase of F. H. A.
program will be considerably accele
rated if the capitalization is reduced
to two million dollars.
Another important change in Title
III called for in the bills would author
ize the mortgage associations to issue
debentures up to 15 times the aggre
! gate par value of outstanding capital
stock, instead of up to 10 times value
of outstanding stock.
An important change to Title I,
dealing with Insurance of moderniza
! tion loans, would enable the adminis
tration to insure loans for apartment
houses, hotels, office buildings, hos
pitals, commercial buildings, manu
facturing and industrial plants, in
eluding installation of new permanent
equipment and machinery. This
[ would be done by providing for the
; insurance of modernization, or prop
erty repair and alteration loans, up
! to $50.000. instead of $2,000 as pro
vided in the present act.
Housing act changes were included
in the bills for H. O. L. C. extension.

A
Low Maintenance Cost in
Long-Term Financing to
Be Discussed.
The importance of low maintenance
cost In the long-term financing of
dveilings is one of the important
subject» co be d'jscussed at ths Eetter
Housing Conference In the Wlllard
Hotel next Friday night.
Mark Beemand, engineer who has
been following very cloeely trends in
up-to-the-minute house construction
throughout the country, Is In charge
of arrangements. The conference is
sponsored by the Portland Cement
Association.
Durability Important.
'"Hie durability of a house, especial
ly in the low price class, is more im
portant than the initial cost," Mr.
Beemand said yesterday. "Many a
house which appeared originally to tec
very desirable because of its low cost,
has turned out to be actually expen- !
sive because of rapid deterioration due \
to careless construction. A home
owner who was able to finance a
home at a modest initial cost often
found himself swamped with high up
keep expense, where building mate
rials and methods of construction
were not given proper consideration.
"Today, durable, fire-safe construc
tion can be secured for little more
than other types as a result of de
velopment work in the low-coet hous
ing field which has been pushed vig
orously all through the depression
period. It is now possible to produce,
in the low-cost bracket, livable homes
which are fire-safe and termite proof,
with a low maintenance cost and in
surable at a moderate rate. Such
dwellings will come within the long
term mortgage requirements of the
national housing act because of their
comparatively low rate of depreciation.
Made Thorough Study.
D. R. Collins of Chicago, who, with
J. K. Gilchrist, District director, Fed
eral Housing Administration, and
Maj. Charles C. Anthony, special
assistant to director. Industry Di
vision, Federal Housing Administra
tion, will be a speaker at the confer
ence, has made a thorough study of
the newest design trends and con
struction methods In the ftousing field.
Much ot the data he has gathered
has to do with the building of low
cost homes which embody the char
acteristics of being livable, flre-aafe
and jwith a low rate of depreciation.
Mr. Collins will show slide pictures
Illustrating recent developments In
low-cost housing. There will also be
complete exhibits of a wide range of
technical literature on various new
types and methods of fire-resistant
house construction.
RADIO AIDS HOUSING
Broadcasting Companies Co-oper
ate With Administration.
The Federal Housing Administra
tion Is receiving 98 per cent co-ope ra
tion in broadcasts from the radio sta
tions of the United State», according
to statistics compiled by the Federal
Housing Administration.
The 2 per cent who are not co
operating, it has been found, are In
sympathy with the program, but are
restricted from lending assistance due
to limited air time or some similar
cause. Since the inception of the
better housing program there have
been 25.000 spot announcements and
26.G37 broadcasts of Federal Housing
Administration programs, addresses,
playlets and other messages.
A widespread radio series is now
In effect to carry on into the Spring.

Valley without longing to live there . . *

crowned knoll reveals a picture of un
surpassed beauty. You drive through
