J All Builders Must Now Be Licensed Approximately 200 builders, including those who do alteration and repair -work, have applied for licenses in Washtenaw county in compliance with the Contractor's License Law. The Board of Supervisors voted Feb. 11 to put the county under this law, known as Act 208 of the* Public Acts ot 1953, which is" administered by the Michigan Corporation and Securities Commission and provides that for any person to engage in the business of residential building or residential maintenance and alteration contracting in the county without a license is unlawful and subject to-a penalty. March 31 was the final date for contractors already in business to send in the applications which were obtained from the county building inspector's office. The applications were returnable through the county building inspector's office or directly to the Michigan Corporation and Securities Commission- Contractors in business less than five years are required to take an examination before a license may be issued. The examination was given at the Washtenaw County Building on Wednesday, March 26, from 10- a.m. until 2 pjn., and usually will be given weekly thereafter -until. April 23. After that contractors will have to go to Detroit to take the examinations, according to County Building Inspector "C. Julius Nunke. Without a license, contractors; cannot practice in Washtenaw5] county. They were given, a period of grace between March 14, when" the law went_ into . effect, and March 31, which wasr. the last deadline. Builders who do not have their licenses- will be refused building permits or be faced with an order stopping their *worl. on projects Loan Program Is Expanded An expanded farm housing loan program dssigned to speed i'p farm building construction and improvement as well as act as an additional anti-recession measure wa~ announced today by Carl L.

Borrowers may use loan funds to build, improve, or repair farm houses or other essential farm buildings, and to provide water for farmstead and household use.a Mr. Robinson said that in addition to financing major construction, many other needs for farm and the loan funds can help meet farm home modernization such as _aain^-SQiro-ms, utility rooms, better kitchens, and many other improvements to the home as well as to farm service buildings. While tenants and farm laborers are not eligible, the owner may borr,ow to do construction work or make improvements for them.

More Rain Sunday Than Feb. and March .Lqng awaited April showers belted this area Sunday putting an' end at least temporarily to the grass fire threat. Rain registering .67 of an inch sprinkled tlie area Sunday and early Monday as they diminished temperatures to a low 33 degrees Monday morning. The week end's total raiiifali. although much top little to satisfy the needs of the farmers in the area, was more than was recorded here for tlie entire months of February and March. Easter worshipers in all their finery went to church Sunday under partly cloudy but warm skies, when the temperatures were i n the 60's. Officials .had been worried that the Huron River would dry up this summer and many wells in this area would dry up if more rain didn't fall. The Sunday shower* didn't help this situation appreciably but indications are that it- can rain now and perhaps we will get the amounts needed in the near future.
