REPEAL OF DIRECT LOAN PROVISION OF FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK ACT

SEC. 3. Subsection (d) of section 4 of the Federal Home Loan
Bank Act (providing for direct loans to home owners) is hereby
repealed.
CREATION OF HOME OWNERS' LOAN CORPORATION

SEC. 4. (a) The Board is hereby authorized and directed to create
a corporation to be known as the Home Owners' Loan Corporation,
which shall be an instrumentality of the United States, which shall
have authority to sue and to be sued in any court of competent
jurisdiction, Federal or State, and which shall be under the direction
of the Board and operated by it under such bylaws, rules, and regu­
lations as it may prescribe for the accomplishment of the purposes
and intent of this section. The members of the Board shall con­
stitute the board of directors of the Corporation and shall serve as

The Board shall determine the minimum amount of capital
stock of the Corporation and is authorized to increase such capital
stock from tiRie to time in such amounts as may be necessary, but not
M0634*—33

[PuB.43.]

to excced in the aggregate $200^000,000. Such stock shall be sub­
scribed for by the Secretary of the Treasury on behalf of the United
States, and payments for such subscriptions shall be subject to call
in whole or in part by the Board and shall be made at such time or
times as the Secretary of the Treasury deems advisable. The Cor­
poration shall issue to the Secretary of the Treasury receipts for pay­
ments by him for or on account of such stock, and such receipts shall
be evidence of the stock ownership of the United States. In order
to enable the Secretary of the Treasury to make such payments when
called, the Reconstruction Finance Corporation is authorized and
directed to allocate and make available to the Secretary of the Treas­
ury the sum of $200,000,000, or so much thereof as may be necessary,
and for such purpose the amount of the notes, bonds, debentures, or
other such obligations which the Reconstruction Finance Corporation
is authorized and empowered under section 9 of the Reconstruction
Finance Corporation Act, as amended, to have outstanding at any
one time, is hereby increased by such amounts as may be necessary.
(c) The Corporation is authorized to issue bonds in an aggregate
amount not to exceed $2,000,000,000, which may be sold oy the
Corporation to obtain funds for carrying out the purposes of this
section, or exchanged as hereinafter provided. Such bonds shall be
issued in such denominations as the Board shall prescribe, shall
mature within a period of not more than eighteen years from the date
of their issue, shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed 4 per centum
per annum, and shall be fully and unconditionally guaranteed as to
interest only by the United States, and such guaranty shall be
expressed on the face thereof. In the event that the Corporation shall
be unable to pay upon demand, when due, the interest on any such
bonds, the Secretary of the Treasury shall pay to the Corporation
the amount of such interest, which is hereby authorized to be appro­
priated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated,
and the Corporation shall pay the amount of such interest to the
holders of the bonds. Upon the payment of such interest by the
Secretary of the Treasury the amount so paid shall become an obli­
gation to the United States of the Corporation and shall bear inter­
est at the same rate as that borne by the bonds upon which the interest
has been so paid. The bonds issued by the Corporation under this
subsection shall be exempt, both as to principal and interest, from
all taxation (except surtaxes, estate, inheritance, and gift taxes) now
or hereafter imposed by the United States or any District, Terri­
tory, dependency, or possession thereof, or by any State, county,
municipality, or local taxing authority. The Corporation, including
its franchise, its capital, reserves and surplus, and its loans and
income, shall likewise be exempt from such taxation; except that any
real property of the Corporation shall be subject to taxation to the
same extent, according to its value, as other real property is taxed.
(d) The Corporation is authorized, for a period of three years after
the date of enactment of this Act, (1) to acquire in exchange for
bonds issued by it, home mortgages and other obligations and liens
secured by real estate (including the interest of a vendor under a
purchase-money mortgage or contract) recorded or filed in the proper
oiEce or executed prior to the date of the enactment of this Act, and
(2) in connection with any such exchange, to make advances in cash



[PuB.43.1

to pay the taxes and assessments on the real estate, to provide for
necessary maintenance and make necessary repairs, to meet the inci­
dental expenses of the transaction, and to pay such amounts, not
exceeding $50, to the holder of the mortgage, obligation, or lien
acquired as may be the difference between the face value of the
bonds exchanged plus accrued interest thereon and the purchase
price of the mortgage, obligation, or lien. The face value of the
bonds so exchanged plus accrued interest thereon and the cash so
advanced shall not exceed in any case $14,000, or 80 per centum of
the value of the real estate as determined by an appraisal made by
the Corporation, whichever is the smaller. In any case in which
the amount of the face value of the bonds exchanged plus accrued
interest thereon and the cash advanced is less than the amount the
home owner owes with respect to the home mortgage or other obli­
gation or lien so acquired by the Corporation, the Corporation shall
credit the difference between such amounts to the home owner and
shall reduce the amount owed by the home owner to the Corporation
to that extent. Each home mortgage or other obligation or lien so
acquired shall be carried as a Rrst lien or refinanced as a home mort­
gage by the Corporation on the basis of the price paid therefor by the
Corporation, and shall be amortized by means of monthly payments
sufHcient to retire the interest and prmcipal within a period of not
to exceed fifteen years; but the amortization payments of any home
owner may be made quarterly, semiannually, or annually, if in the
judgment of the Corporation the situation of the home owner requires
it. Interest on the unpaid balance of the obligation of the home
owner to the Corporation shall be at a rate not exceeding 5 per
centum per annum. The Corporation may at any time grant an
extension of time to any home owner for the payment of any install­
ment of principal or interest owed by him to the Corporation if, in
the judgment of the Corporation, the circumstances of the home
owner and the condition of the security justify such extension, and
no payment of any installment of principal shall be required during
the period of three years from the date this Act takes effect if the
home ow ner shall not be in default w ith respect to any other condi­
tion or covenant of his mortgage. As used in this subsection, the
term " real estate " includes only real estate held in fee simple or
on a leasehold under a lease renewable for not less than ninety-nine
years, upon which there is located a dwelling for not more than four
families used by the owner as a home or held by him as a homestead
and having a value not exceeding $20,000. No discrimination shall
be made under this Act against any home mortgage by reason of
the fact that the real estate securing such mortgage is located in a
municipality, county, or taxing district which is in default upon
any of its obligations.
^e) The Corporation is further authorized, for a period of three
years from the date of enactment of this Act, to make loans in cash
subject to the same limitations and for the same purposes for which
cash advances may be made under subsection (d) of this section, in
cases where the property is not otherwise encumbered; but no such
loan shall exceed 50 per centum of the value of the property securing
the same as determined upon an appraisal made by the Corporation!
Each such loan shall be secured by a duly recorded home mortgage,




4

[PU B.43.]

and shall bear interest at the same rate and shall be subject to the
same provisions with respect to amortization and extensions as are
applicable in the case of obligations refinanced under subsection (d)
of this section.
(f) The Corporation is further authorized, for a period of three
years from the date of enactment of this Act, in any case in which
the holder of a home mortgage or other obligation or lien eligible
for exchange under subsection (d) of this section does not accept
the bonds of the Corporation in exchange as provided in such sub­
section and in which the Corporation Rnds that the home owner
cannot obtain a loan from ordinary lending agencies, to make cash
advances to such home owner in an amount not to exceed 40 per
centum of the value of the property for the purposes specified in such
subsection (d). Each such loan shall be secured by a duly recorded
home mortgage and shall bear interest at a rate of interest which
shall be uniform throughout the United States, but which in no
event shall exceed a rate of 6 per centum per annum, and shall be
subject to the same provisions with respect to amortization and
extensions as are applicable in cases of obligations refinanced under
subsection (d) of this section.
(g) The Corporation is further authorized, for a period of three
years from the date of the enactment of this Act, to exchange bonds
and to advance cash, subject to the limitations provided in subsec­
tion (d) of this section, to redeem or recover homes lost by the own­
ers by foreclosure or forced sale by a trustee under a deed of trust
or under power of attorney, or by voluntary surrender to the mort­
gagee within two years prior to such exchange or advance.
(h) The Board shall make rules for the appraisal of the property
on which loans are made under this section so as to accomplish the
purposes of this Act.
(i) Any person indebted to the Corporation may make payment
to it in part or in full by delivery to it of its bonds which shall be
accepted for such purpose at face value.
(j) The Corporation shall have power to select, employ, and fix
the compensation of such oSicers, employees, attorneys, or agents as
shall be necessary for the performance of its duties under this Act,
without regard to the provisions of other laws applicable to the
employment or compensation of oSicers, employees, attorneys, or
agents of the United States. No such ofRcer, employee, attorney, or
agent shall be paid compensation at a rate in excess of the rate
provided by law in the case of the members of the Board. The
Corporation shall be entitled to the free use of the United States
mails for its ofBcial business in the same manner as the executive
departments of the Government, and shall determine its necessary
expenditures under this Act and the manner in which they shall be
incurred, allowed, and paid, without regard to the provisions of any
other law governing the expenditure of public funds. The Corpo­
ration shall pay such proportion of the salary and expenses of the
members of the Board and of its ofHcers and employees as the Board
may determine to be equitable, and may use the facilities of Federal
Home Loan Banks, upon making reasonable compensation therefor
as determined by the Board.
(k) The Board* is authorized to make such bylaws, rules and
regulations, not inconsistent with the provisions of this section, as




[P
un.43j

5

may be necessary for the proper conduct of the affairs of the Corpo­
ration. The Corporation is further authorized and directed to retire
and cancel the bonds and stock of the Corporation as rapidly as the
resources of the Corporation will permit. Upon the retirement of
such stock, the reasonable value thereof as determined by the Board
shall be paid into the Treasury of the United States and the receipts
issued therefor shall be canceled. The Board shall proceed to liqui­
date the Corporation when its purposes have been accomplished, and
shall pay any surplus or accumulated funds into the Treasury of the
United States. The Corporation may declare and pay such divi­
dends to the United States as may be earned and as in the judgment
of the Board it is proper for the Corporation to pay.
FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATIONS

SEC. 5. (a) In order to provide local mutual thrift institutions
in which people may invest their funds and in order to provide for
the financing of homes, the Board is authorized, under such rules and
regulations as it may prescribe, to provide for the organization,
incorporation, examination, operation, and regulation of associations
to be known as "Federal Savings and Loan Associations", and to
issue charters therefor, giving primary consideration to the best
practices of local mutual thritt and home-financing institutions in
the United States.
(b) Such associations shall raise their capital only in the form of
payments on such shares as are authorized in their charter, which
shares may be retired as is therein provided. No deposits shall be
accepted and no certificates of indebtedness shall be issued except
for such borrowed money as may be authorized by regulations of
the Board.
(c) Such associations shall lend their funds only on the security
of their shares or on the security of first liens upon homes or combi­
nation of homes and business property within fifty miles of their
home ofHce:
That not more than $20,000 shall be loaned on
the security of a first lien upon any one such property; except that
not exceeding 15 per centum of the assets of such association may be
loaned on other improved real estate without regard to said $20,000
limitation, and without regard to said fifty-mile Emit, but secured by
first lien thereon:
That any portion of the
assets of such associations may be invested in obligations of the
United States or the stock or bonds of a Federal Home Loan Bank.
(d) The Board shall have full power to provide in the rules and
regulations herein authorized for the reorganization, consolidation,
merger, or liquidation of such associations, including the power to
appoint a conservator or a receiver to take charge of the affairs of
any such association, and to require an equitable readjustment of the
capital structure of the same; and to release any such association from
such control and permit its further operation.
(e) No charter shall be granted except to persons of good charac­
ter and responsibility, nor unless in the judgment of the Board a
necessity exists for such an institution in the community to be served,
nor unless there is a reasonable probability of its usefulness and suc­
cess, nor unless the same can be established without undue injury to
properly conducted existing local thrift and home-financing insti­
tutions.

fPrB.43.)

(f) Each such association, upon its incorporation, shall become
automatically a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank of the
district in which it is located, or if convenience shall require and the
Board approve, shall become a member of a Federal Home Loan
Bank of an adjoining district. Such associations shall qualify for
such membership in the manner provided in the Federal Home Loan
Bank Act with respect to other members.
(g) The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized on behalf of the
United States to subscribe for preferred shares in such associations
which shall be preferred as to the assets of the association and which
Ehall be entitled to a dividend, if earned, after payment of expenses
and provision for reasonable reserves, to the same extent as other
shareholders. It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury
to subscribe for such preferred shares upon the request of the B oard;
but the subscription by him to the shares of any one association shall
not exceed $100,000, and no such subscription shall be called for unless
in the judgment of the Board the funds are necessary for the encour­
agement of local home financing in the community to be served and
for the reasonable financing of homes in such community. Payment
on such shares may be called from time to time by the association,
subject to the approval of the Board and the Secretary of the Treas­
ury ; but the amount paid in by the Secretary of the Treasury shall
at no time exceed the amount paid in by all other shareholders, and
the aggregate amount of shares held by the Secretary of the Treasury
shall not exceed at any time the aggregate amount of shares held by
all other shareholders. To enable the Secretary of the Treasury to
make such subscriptions when called there is hereby authorized to be
appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appro­
priated, the sum of $100,000,000, to be immediately available and to
remain available until expended. Each such association shall issue
receipts for such payments by the Secretary of the Treasury in such
form as may be approved by the Board, and such receipts shall be
evidence of the interest of the United States in such preferred shares
to the extent of the amount so paid. Each such association shall
make provision for the retirement of its preferred shares held by the
Secretary of the Treasury, and beginning at the expiration of five
years from the time of the investment in such shares, the association
shall set aside one third of the receipts from its investing and bor­
rowing shareholders to be used for the purpose of such retirement.
La case of the liquidation of any such association the shares held by
the Secretary of the Treasury shall be retired at par before any pay­
ments are made to other shareholders.
(h) Such associations, including their franchises, capital, reserves,
and surplus, and their loans and income, shall be exempt from all
taxation now or hereafter imposed by the United States, and all shares
of such associations shall be exempt both as to their value and the
income therefrom from all taxation (except surtaxes, estate, inheri­
tance, and gifttaxes) now or hereafter imposed by the United States;
and no otate, Territorial, county, municipal, or local taxing authority
snail impose any tax on such associations or their franchise, capital,
reserves, surplus, loans, or income greater than that imposed by such
authority on other similar local mutual or cooperative thrift and
home financing institutions.

tions as the Board may prescribe, and thereafter the converted asso­
ciation shall be entitled to all the benefits of this section and shall be
subject to examination and regulation to the same extent as other
associations incorporated pursuant to this Act.
