Seattle, March 6 — How an in- crease as small as one percent in interest may mean a difference of ten percent or more in the total cost of a home, is pointed out by the Federal Housing Administrat- ion in support of its contetion that home financing today is less costly than ever before. he made on an FHA insured mort- gage, it was explained by Clark R. is 4V: percent interest, plus one- half percent mortgage insurance premium, both computed on out— standing declining balances. “Few people realize that an ap- parently trifling difference in in- terest rates makes a very consid- erable difference in the final cost of home ownership”, declared State Director Jackson. “Rates most frequently quoted for this Steele’s CUT-RATE ECONOMY DRUG STORE Film Developing Free 2 5 Enlargement ..

The maxium charge which may: Jackson, FHA State Director, now ‘ z—lbs. ,form of financing are frational, ranging from six percent down to :41/2 percent, an inconsequential ivariation in the opinion of many ‘ borrowers. “However, a little figure clearly shows that a difference of only lone percent in the rate a home ,buyer pays for his money may mean a difference of ten percent ,or more in the total cost of his lhome. Icharge is five percent, which is [maxium cost under the Federal lHousing plan. On a monthly amortized, direct reduction loan carrying FHA insurance, the bor- rower will pay $7,920 over a per- »iod of 20 years. “With exactly the same kind of loan, without FHA insurance, and at six percent interest, he would lpay $8,604. The $684 difference is more than 13 percent interest of would mean an increase of more than 8% percent in the total even— tual cost of his home.” A similar transaction consum- mated before FHA-insurance mort- gage were made available through approved local lending institutions as follows according to FHA offi- cials. First mortgages for $2400 at six percent, or more, interest; second mortgages for $1,850 at seven per- cent, and third mortgages for $750 on which interest might range from seven to ten percent. Usually they were written on one—year notes, which required complete re- financing, with title search and accumulating charges, at least every five years. In both instances, it was declar- ed, the down payment is assumed to be $600. In contrast to multiple mortgages, high interest rates and repetition of financing charges, it was pointed out that a single long term FHA-insured mortgage may be completely paid off and the en- tire $5,000 indebtedness wiped out with payments averaging less than a dollar a day, without secondary 1financing or ever renewing the mortgage loans.

That probably will be soon, it indications that the bill, intro- Iduced by Sen. H. N. Barney Jack- Ison, was due to be reported out' of the fisheries committee with. a recommendation for passage. There is no known method of lmeeting the requirements of the measure and the St. Regis Kraft and Rayonier plants in Tacoma ,iwould be forced to close up, the lpulp men declared. They re- ‘ferred to a situation in Shelton in which the pulp waste is pump-l led over a hill, but they explained 'such a method of disposal is im~ possible in Tacoma, that there is no place to pump it. Pulp mills throughout the Pu-~ get Sound area which have spent ,many millions on equipment and {maintain large payrolls, would be dealt a severe blow should such“ a bill be passed, they asserted. [These plants are lining up for a 'vigorous fight against the meas- ure which has received support- from commercial and sports fish-i lermen who claimed chemicals from the mills were destroying fish, oysters and other shellfish. Passage of the measure not only would affect the plants, but the logging industry, which supplies lthem and the many hundreds of persons and small commercial concerns which the mills support through their payrolls, it was pointed out. The state of Wiscon- sin has been working for 15 to 20‘ years on the disposal problem and no solution yet has been reached, the pulp men declare. Opponents of the measure said they had not been given proper consideration, after a hearing be- fore Jackson’s committee. In- Isufficient notice of the. hearing was given to permit response from! the hundreds who would be ad- versely affected, they declare. They are prepared to carry their fight through the Senate and into the House if necessary, opponents Iof the bill assert.
