The City Council has approved the distribution of almost $6.7 million in U.S. Housing and Urban Development grants, which will be split among city programs and more than 40 community service organizations.

Some $3 million will go to repay loans for the Bristol Street widening project, according to the plan approved by the council last week.

A grand jury indicted two Indiana businessmen Wednesday on charges of defrauding federal housing programs. The federal indictments were the first in the state from a nationwide probe of theft and political decision-making at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, U.S. Atty. Deborah J. Daniels said. "I would say these two cases are symptomatic of the types of cases you will see across the country in fraud on the government in HUD programs," she said.

Over the clatter of arriving and departing trains, Alford Nichols makes his pitch to passersby at the downtown Transportation Center, urging them to stop at his stand for a $5 shoeshine. Nichols, known to his customers as Big Smokey, offers his services to depot visitors in the place he says is perfect for his business, buffing commuters' shoes to a high luster. "I picked this location because it's a really nice area," says Nichols, 55, who began shining shoes in Chicago when he was 13.

Cisneros presided at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Critics contend that it did little more than boost the public image of the secretary of Housing and Urban Development. U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Samuel R. Pierce has periodically traveled around the country promoting the nation's fair housing laws with parties, balloon shows, press conferences, newspaper ads and billboards carrying his picture.
