This is within Florida's moderate in- come level of $8,000 so the family may be eligible for a Farmers Home Administration loan. James V. Smith, National Ad- ministrator of Farmers Home Administration emphasized that newly-eligible families must demonstrate that they otherwise merit FHA financing, and that credit is not available from regular commercial sources. "The new policy will assist families in which the wife's in- come is needed to improve the standard of living. Note that if the wife is the principal breadwinner, the rule does not apply. This change will in no way affect our expanding ser- vice to low-income families," Mr. Smith said. Loans may be made to families that will buy or build homes in open country or towns of up to 10,000 population, and who are not able to secure credit from regular com- mercial sources. Completein- formation is available from FH-A office located at corner of North 9th Street and Burdick Avenue, DeFuniak Springs, Florida, or from any of the 26 FHA offices in Florida. 1972 tl DEALERS ggers in ran iaso ine • • • im't a car on the road tlmt I using itl 01L CONTEST SLATED JUNE 241"H AT 2P.M.
