| Housing Question Box |
Following: are a few questions and
answers which may help enlighten
some readers relative to the Federal
Housing Administration, loans for
which can be secured locally through
the Bank of Edenton:
Question: Are lending institutions
which have been approved by the
Federal Housing Administration au
thorized to make loans for minor im
provements to farm property?
Answer: The regulations cover a
wide range of work and give the
farm owner the opportunity to make
needed repairs, or improvements at
once. New foundations may be put
in, or old ones repaired; walk 3 and
steps repaired, feeding floors built
in, driveways laid, bam and poultry
houses built, or repaired, milk houses
and cooling tanks constructed, terrace
outlets and retaining walls built. The
lowest loan is for SIOO, but a num
ber of these minor repairs may be
grouped into one loan to make or ex
ceed this sum.
Question: What may be done with
an old basement under Federal Hous
ing Administration regulations?
Answer: Lending institutions are
authorized to make loans to improve,
*or rebuild the basement. Old rickety
• stairs may be placed and the base
ment so thoroughly modernized that
it may be transformed into a mod
ern recreation room or workshop.
Any contractor will give you the ne
cessary information and costs.
i Question: I wish to modernize my
"home so that my children may enjoy
it while they are with me. With my
income and savings I will be able to
build or buy a new home within five
or six years. But that would be too
late for them to enjoy it. What can
I do to improve the present dwelling ?
Answer: Your local contractor, any
member of the Better Housing Cam
paign Committee in your city, or the
hnnira and credit institutions will
give you the necessary advice. You
may borrow from SIOO to $2,000 for
modernization or additions. Every
building, no matter how old, lends it
self to improvement. As you say, do
it now, instead of years later. It is a
good investment and will preserve the
Question: I have always wanted to
raise chickens. I have quite a large
piece of property on which my home
is located. May I negotiate the ne
cessary loan for a chicken house.
Answer: Yes. Such loans are au
thorized by the Federal Housing Ad
ministration subject to approval by
your banker, or other approved credit
agency, the Department of Agricul
ture, or your state agricultural engi
neering department has plans and
will give you the necessary advice.
Question: In the modernization of
hames, as contemplated in the Better
Housing Campaign, there is evident
need to recognize “hobbies” of chil
dren as well as grown-ups. What
would you suggest?
Answer: There could be a muted
room for study so that the children
could concentrate. The 3ame room
could be used by would-be orators,
actors and musicians. It would be a
helpful addition to the home and one
which would undoubtedly be wel
comed by the neighbors.

Timely Questions On
Question: What is meant by the
term “blood tested chicks?”
Answer: This term means that
the chicks sold as blood tested have
proven negative to the test for pull
orum disease or bicillary white di
arrhea. This disease in youngs chicks
may usually be traced back to the
parent stock and the test, when
there is a negative reaction, reduces
the chance of diseased chicks to the
minimum. Chicks that carry the
blood test guarantee are well worth
the premium paid as the disease is
extremely dangerous when once start
ed in the flock.
Question: Will cotton growers who
did not sign a reduction contract be
allowed to sign one for the 1935
Answer: Yes. Arrangements are
now being made to allow all non
signers an opportunity to sign a 1935
contract. Rental and benefit pay
ments will be made to those growers
who sign on their adjusted acreage
and production. The non-signers were
directly responsible for the Bankhead
Act and with a 100 per cent sign
up there will be no need for a con
tinuation of this act.
Question: Is it too late to seed
Austrian winter peas for soil im
Answer: No. This legume may
be sown as late as December first in
mo3t sections and even later than this
date in the southeastern counties.
The plant is easy tc grow, produces
plenty of vegetation and is easier to
inoculate than vetch. At least thirty
pounds of seed should be sown to the
acre. The crop also has an addi
tional advantage in that it can be
turned under earlier in the spring
than either of the other winter
