DO WE WANT SNYDERV1LLES?—
Two girls were dragged off to jail
recently for pitching a tent on Bos
ton Common, veterans have been de
manding the right to build shacks for
their families in Central Park in New
York, hundreds of frantic appeals for
apartments—any size, anywhere, any
price—fill the classified ads.
Those are symptoms of the worst
housing shortage ever foisted on this
nation, and they’re only the beginning.
Unless decisive action is taken quick
ly, watch for a rebirth of the old slum
communities of tents and shacks that
mushroom in deserted lots, along river
banks, on the outskirts of town.
Only to bring the story up to date,
these new housing projects should be
called Snydervilles in tribute to Re
conversion Director John W. Snyder,
whose actions thus far have endeared
him solely to the real estate interests.
The way to solve the housing crisis
is not just to insure greatly expanded
new construction, as Snyder has done,
but to make sure that new homes are
moderately priced and that price ceil
ings are set by legislation on both
new and old homes. It won’t help the
veterans or thousands of other hdme
seekers if there are apartments avail
able—but at prices they can’t afford.
The inflationary effects of Snyder's
initial order dropping all wartime con
trols on construction is already being
felt. A page 1 story in the Wall Street
Journal blithely announces, Rents Are
Going Up: and predicts that an ordin
ary 3-room apartment which used to
rent for $60 a month or less will bring
at least $90 to $1CO a month in the
new apartment houses.
And those rentals are just a fore
taste of what will happen generally
if industry wins in its fight against
OPA price ceilings on existing dwell
ings. Snyder is reported sitting up
nights trying to decide whether to bow
to the landlords’ demands for dump
ing all housing price controls or to
heed the good advice of OPA officials
who are calling for legislation against
real estate inflation. Organized labor
can help him make up his mind by
writing to him and their congressmen
urging them to legislate price controls
