The bureau of housing, headed by
Otto Eldlltx, regarded by Government
officials as a high-class, competent

Questions af Policy Isapoffant
There are a number of Important
questions of policy to be decided by tho
President before definite action can be
taken by Mr. EldllU. The bulk of the
appropriation Is to provide housing,

The bill provides that houses erected
Ahall be of a temporary character ex
cept where the Interests of the
government will be best subserved by
building of a permanent character.
The President and his advisers must
decide what the class of buildings shall
be at different places: whether of tem
porary or permanent character ; whether
ouiit lor resale to workers ; wnetner ez
istlng houses shall be purchased and
remodeled and how far the Govern

There are some big questions In

out so easily. Mr. Wilson is prepared
to give recommendations and advice
to the President.

the District for erecting house for
navy yard employes who cannot ob
tain houses now. The navy yard, so
soon as a number of large work build
ings now going up are completed, will
want 2,000 to 3,000 more (workers, and
they must be boused. Several plans
for doing this are under considera
tion. One Is tbe purchase of ground
and erection of buildings in the vi
cinity of Nineteenth and East Capitol
streets so that the navy yard em
ployes may be In walking distance.
Another is the use for the same pur
pose of a fifty-acre tract of land on.

belonging to the. Government, having
been Used for some years as a farm
for the Hospital for the Insane. This
tract has been recommended by the
bureau of housing, but the Hospital
for the Insane Is making objections on
the ground that the products of tbe
farm, only a part of which Is under
cultivation this year, owing to the
scarcity of farm labor, are used for
making ensilage far the dairy.
Upon thla site It Is proposed to
erect suitable homes that may be
sold by the Government to workers.
The Washington Steel and Ordnance
Company, located at Glesboro Point,
Is only a short distance away from
this farm, and part of the construc
tion was to aid In housing workers
for this concern, making munitions
for the Government, and thousands
of men short of the number needed
to turn out Its quota of supplies.
The matter Is under consideration,
the claim being made that the farm
is unproductive and unprofitable to
the government, and that It will be
a waste of government funds to buy
lands elsewhere when this site, not
properly utilised for years, could now
b made to play its part in the Gov
ernment's wsr building alms. Con
gress Heights Is a short car ride
from tho Navy Yard.
For Alley Population.
The last paragraph of the housing
bill provides'that tho expenditures In
the District of Columbia shall be
made with a view to caring for the
alley population of the District when
the war is over, so rar as It may do
done. This Is another problem the
President and his advisers must
Of the four site so far cho.en for
erection of dormitories In the Dis
trict, upon only one could be placed
buildings thst might be used for
housing the alley population after the
war. This Is on the two squares
bounded by Fourteenth, Tifteenth
and B streets and Ohio avenue, anil
this Is part of the site bought by the
Government some years ago upon
which to erect buildings for the De
partments of State and Justice. The
purchase Included all the squares be
tween Pennsylvania avenue and the
Monument grounds, bounded on the
eist by Fourteenth street and. on the
we-t by Fifteenth. There would be a
big row In the I"lne Arts Commission
and In Congress If a building should
be put up in this part of the city
that would be permanently used for
The other sites recommended are
the plaza, between the Capitol and the
Union Station, where alley housing
after the war would not be tolerated:
a portion of the Monument grounds,
and a tract in Potomac Park, west
of the aorth end of the railroad
bridge, near the foot of Fourteenth
street. The latter two sites will con
tain temporary buildings only. The
buildings are to be three stories high,
