one who .knows the history of >
single decade of America can be
gloomy over the certainty of our
rapid recovery and our progreas to
"Obviously one of the moat dincult
problems in front of the entire
country ta that of housing. I need
not recount, to you that the cause
of this critical problem has been
the diversion of our economic
strength from permanent construction
to manufacture of consumable
commodities during and after the
war. In ltlO we averaged about
110 families for each 101) homes and
In 1*J0 about 117 families. This
indicates a shortage of nearly I.500.000
homes even on the l?l?
standard. An equally disturbing
fact is that the tentative flatures
from the forthcoming census indicate
that the total number of homes
owned by the occupiers has steadily
decreased, and a total of nearly lo
per cent, of our population are living
as tenanta. a larger ratio than
many other countries. If we are to
build up the stability and the happiness
of .our people, this is Just the
reverse of what should happen
Nothing is worse than an Increase
tenantry and landlordism In the
"If we make a study of the suggested
remedies for the situation
we And they fall Into two general
groups?first, those that may be
worked out by Individuals or local
community action, and. second,
those Involving the assistance of
the Federal government. As to tne
latter. I wish to say definitely that
the Federal government has ne
notion whatever of going Into the
housing business either directly or
Indirectly. It will not fl* prices nor
wages. There are. however, three
fields In which the government can
be of important assistance.
Three Things to be Dene.
"First, the government must as
a matter of primary duty drive
every combination out of business
that attempta to restrain trade.
Second, the government to some degree
directly or Indirectly controls
or obstructs the flow of credits ana
It therefore has a responsibility toward
this part of the problem.
Third, the government can and
should interest itself in dissemination
of information in scientific
study of certain problems in materials
and methods, and in cooperation
with the Industries to receive
voluntary reduction in wastes, that
the costs of homes may be decreased.
'In the matter of credit the government
has considerable responsibility
and must take constructive
action to remove obstables to which
It is a party.
"I do not think you will disagree
with me in the statement that the
tax-fee security has materially diverted
capital that would otherwise
be available for the building Industry,
and has resulted in increasing
Interest ratea to home builders.
"I think you will all agree wltn
me that the chief reliance for home
building must be upon our saving
Institutions. If we examine these
institutions, we will find that the
total sum of money available of this
type, either in mutual savings banks,
building and loan ahsociations, or
In savings departments of national
or state banks and trust companies,
or In the assets of our insurance
companies, will all aggregate somewhere
about 122.000.000. If we
eliminate the building and loan societies
who obviously devote all of
their assets to building and the
actual savings banks who devote
from 40 to 50 per cent of their deposits
to this purpose, we will fino
that the savings departments of the
national banks, of the state banks,
of the trust companies and of the
insurance companies, which comprise
more than one-hair of tne
total savings, probably do not loan
for home building more than Is
or 15 per cent of their deposits or
savings assets. There has been a
tendency during the last few years
for the savings of the people to go
In an increased proportion Into this
latter class of Institution, and to
Journey thence into commercial
paper, bonds, etc.. rather than Into
"This diversion of savings money
into commercial channels has been
a very natural shift to higher rates
of interest In times of great commodity
movement. If we examine
the forthcoming census figures we
wilt find that the average Interest
paid by home owners for loans Is
less than 6 per cent. However, the
regular procession of pm economic
depression is first the lowering of
prices and volume or production
with consequent reduction In amount
of capital needed and a falling rate
of Interest. We should expect this
to happen again and Interest rates
to fall to the reach of the home
builder with increased sums available
"On the other hand. I believe that
we ahould have a very much more
stable economic system If we had
a more regular proportion of our
savings available to home building.
There Is, in fact, no other economic
fund than our savings Institutions
from which our home 'building can
be safely secured. It would seem
to me. therefore, highly desirable
that the amendment proposed to tie
Federal Reserve Act, by which tne
larger proportion of the savings deposits
of national banks may be
used for building purposes, la an
advisable change. There is an ample
margin for a great Increase In
this respect, leaving ample propoftlcn
of liquid funds.
"There Is another diversion 'of
savings that I think Is worthy of
consideration, and that Is In the
Postal Savings System. In this
system the deposits are so redeposited
as to flow Into commercial
purposes. It would seem a constructive
thing If 40 or SO per cent
of deposits In postal savings banks
could be diverted to home building
as Is the case In the savinga banks.
I am convinced that an extension
of the postal savings activities
would mobilise a considerable fund
of hoarded money, and by act*on
such as outlined above we should
increase substantially the available
sums for home building. Any such
proposal can be surrounded with
the necessary requirements of local
application and perfect safety in investment
by filtering' the money
is Must Go,
through ezistlrg building Institutions.
"There is in the building matter
a service that we have Inaugurated
In the Department of Commerce,
which I believe will commend Itself
i ^ t,<? fealt6ra. That is an organised
effort to solve certain problema
Dbr organised co-operation
with the Industry and by acientinc
Investigation through the department
laboratories. The elimination
of waste through a nationwide scientific
revision of the building
codes In which strength, durability
and lire resistance of structures
may be Increased, and yet, with
j scientific use of materials, cost may
be decreaaed. will naturally be followed
by a scientific reriaion of the
re Inaurance regulations, so that
suitable materials may be more
promptly utllVed and the art of
building more rapidly advanced
The simplification of the dimensions
of material and a atudy directed to
standard quality and improved
processes of manufacture of such
material is in progress. The sctlvl!!e*

where the production of each unit

knowledge of Improved methods, so
in the case of construction the
thousands of units of the building

and co-operation through
the government. Such Information,
If generally used, should not only
decrease the cost of erecting buildings
but should eliminate waste due
to Irregularities in operation and
due to inefficient mehods of distribution.
and will greatly lower the
cost of building to all concerned
These are functions of government
cf the finest order?those which
march through education and cooperation
of our people.
"It is chiefly through the hope of
enjoying the ownership of home
and independence that the latent
energy of the cltlsenry may be
called forth. Since 1841 the United
States has. in Its land laws, recognized
this great Incentive. It has
stimulated the building of rural
homes through the wide distribution
of land under the homestead
acts and through the distribution of
credit through the Farm Loan
H#?f -leeeaaary Paeter.
"During this period of reconstruction
we are talking much of
hard work and thrift, but after all
It Is hope that stimulates initiative
and energy, hope of security and
hope of advaqcement which makes
a producer' out of the man who has
been saying to hfpiself: What's the
user After all, saving In the abstract
is a perfunctory process as
compared to purposeful saving, and
what greater incentive for saving !s
there than for the ownership of a
home, the possession of which may
change the very physical, mental,
and moral fiber of one's own children?

If the rate of increase In tensntry

Is most far-reaching. They In an
