For Newspaper Service Dial 2-3311 EMORY APPOINTED TO HOUSING POST (Continued From Page One) Dr. Bryn J. Hovde, head of the New School for Social Research, New York: Catherine Bauer, of Harvard, a pioneer crusader for better housing; Charles Abrams of New York, economist and author of housing books, ana other... Confirming his acceptance of the appointment, Emory said the work would not interfere with his duties with the local housing authority. In a statement he said: I have accepted the appoint ment to which Mr. Johnson refers. “It is an assignment which I did not by any means seek, and I have many misgivings as to whether the right person has been selected. But I have resolved to try to do a good job, for I believe the good of the nation requires that the job be done. “We are short by a good many million dwelling units of having enough housing in the United States. Very little progress is be ing made toward meeting the short age. Not much construction is go ing on, and the few houses that are being built are for sale or rent at prices far above the reach of most of our veterans and others. The veterans do not like this, and they cannot be blamed for not liking it. "Only half of the Wyatt housing legislative program has been en acted by Congress. The Patman bill, passed last spring, is chiefly designed to encourage production of building materials. The Wagner Ellender-Taft bill Contains the machinery for geeting the houses built. This bill is essential, in my judgment, if we are to relieve the shortage and provide the housing desperately needed by our veterans land others. Mr. Wyatt wants the I bill passed, and so does President | Truman, and both have publicly I said so on many occasions. Bill’s Aim ' “It is estimated that the bill would bring about production of about a million and a quarter dwelling units a year. About 90 per cent of these would be built by private capital, and the rest would be public housing built by local housing authorities. Every dwell ing unit built under the measure would be reserved exclusively for veterans of World War n. Reco gnizing this, veterans’ organiza tions are giving increasing support to the bill. The Veterans of Foreign Wars at their national con vention this month in Boston un animously endorsed the bill, and the matter will be presented at the American Legion’s national con Last week of CLEARANCE The clearance in ihe former location of the Gift De partment has some real bargains for your home.

There is no magic in it. The housing shortage is so terrific that there is literally no power o,nd no legislation that can solve it overnight. But we do point out that the bill embodies the only housing program before the coun try. Its provisions were written after two years . of study by two senate committees. No alternative is proposed. Those who oppose it assume the responsibility for say ing that our veterans shall not be housed. We do not think the coun try feels that way about it ^We shairtry to explain the bill OP A Asked To Hike Cottonseed Prices WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 _ <JP)— Senator Swift (D-Ala) has urged OPA and the Agriculture depart ment to increase the ceiling prices of cottonseed products “in line with” a base price of $73 a ton for cottonseed. His office made public today a telegram he sent to Secretary of Agriculture Anderson urging that APO be directed to increase the price, contending a boost is nec essary because of the current shortage of fats and oils. as widely as possible, and to enlist support from every source we can. The Legislative Action Committee of NPHC is the nucleus of the largest and most active group of supporters of the bill.

Moore issued the following state, nient concerning his views on the return of the OPA price controls on meats: “It is my earnest opinion that, if the OPA will relinquish his price controls on meats, there will be plenty of meat for every one. “Under the present situation, the far*ier can't sell his livestock and get his expenses out of it. “The public should realize what an expense livestock raising is, and do something about it. “This is the mess the country is in today—The farmer has tc make money just the same as any one else. If he can’t get his price and must of necessity hold his live stock, then the slaughter houses are forced to close. "This throws a lot of people out of work, and they go hungry along with the rest of the public. “It takes meat for us to live normal lives and be healthy citi zens, so why not do something about this shortage of meats. “The public should demand that STRAWBERRY PLANTS Plant in Fall fqrluscious berries next spring.
