charge of approximately $40 month-
ly per person to cover the cost of one

Federation ApartMents was financed
by a loan from the Federal Govern-

rents. The income limits are specified
under the Government program. A

more than an annual income of S4,500.
The combined income of a husband
and wife may not exceed 55,400. The
combined income of two other per.1
sons sharing an apartment may not
exceed $6.600.

will be considered?
The application form asks for confi-
dential information ocncerning all

This building is the result of several
years of planning by the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation of Detroit, its spon-
sor. It is a "pilot" program In the
sense that experience gained here will
help the organized Jewish community
determine the need for and variety
of further facilities.
Federation Apartments, Inc., was
formed to assume responsibility for

constructing the building and operating
it. The department's program adds an-

other facet to the Detroit community's
services to the elderly which are co-
ordinated through the J.W.F. The Jew-
ish Community Center, Jewish Family

formulating the apartment residence

the government to speed up the
construction of bomb-proof shelters

cient funds are not available in

approval of the substitution of
local armament production for im-
ported arms and praised the con-
tinuing progress that is taking
