PAGE EIGHT Monroe Monitor, Monroe, Wash., Feb. 25, 1960 Home Builders May Be Aided By Government Contrary to popular opinion and the pronouncements of some real- tors, builders and lenders, FHA mortage money is still available in the western states for home buyers GUARD HELPED U. S. GROW National Guard civilian-soldiers played an important role in the ex- pansion of the U. S. They went to Mexico with the Regulars in 1838- 40; fought mightily on both sides in the Civil War; campaigned in the West; took part in the assault on San Juan Hill; went to the ever-ridden Philippines; and met a General named John J. Pershing, for the first time, along the Mexi- can Border in the year 1916. IRON BRIGADE From a vantage point overlook- inn the Battle of South Mountain (Maryland) in September 1862, ajor General George B. McClel- lan watched an attack by black- hatted troopers from Wisconsin and Indiana. He turned to a fellow offi- cer to ask whose troops they were. He learned they were Gibbon's Brigade. General McClellan com- mented that they were made of iron. The name stuck and Gib- ,bon's rigade became Iron Bri- gade of the West. m| | DOUGLASS BARBER SHOP MONROE SHOPPING CENTER 9 A.M. -- 6 P.M. m closed Mondays Christian Reformed Church WST  ST.

YOU APE INVITED Sunday School for all ages at II:15 A.K . _, eligible for the services of the Vol- untary Home Mortgage Credit Pro- gram, according to John G. Ander- son, executive secretary, IIMCP Region 7, San Francisco. During the 17-month period since September 1958, Anderson said his agency has been placing FHA loans at an average rate of $1 mil- lion per month for home buyers in small communities and for minority group buyers. The area served by the San Francisco office of VHMCP includes the states of Arizona, Cali- ;fornia, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii. Without charge, VHMCP attempts to find a private lender (bank, sav- ings and loan association, insurance company or mortgage firm) willing to make FHA loans on reasonable terms to would-be home buyers who have been unable to get such financing from local or reasonably accessible lending sources. To be eligible for assistance applicants must be seeking to buy or build a home in a small community re- mote from metropolitan centers or must he members of a minority group. There are no area limita- tions for minority applicants. Sno- homish County, except the city of' Everett, is an eligible area. Anderson emphasized that VHM P is not a give-away or special hardship program. Properties on which financing is sought must .be good homes in established residen- tial neighborhoods. Buyers must be steadily employed with ,adequate in- come to support the loan requested and must have  good credit his- tory. Farm toans, business loans, refinancing a home already own- ed, and resort area summer homes are not eligible for VI-ICP place- ment. Under the supervision of a na- tional committee cooperating with the Housing and Home Finance Administration, VHMCP has chan- neled over $4 million to veterans and nonveterans in the past five years. Anyone needing VtMCP assist- ance should write to VHMCP Re- gional Office, Room 203, 989 Mar- ket Street, San Francisco 3, Cali- 'fornia. AVArLOH MONROE Phone PY 4-4517 Thurs., FrL, Sat., Sun.
