HOUSJNGJEPORT Letter to Moffett, Praising Progress, Sent to Local Groups. By the Associated Press. An expression of presidential "grati fication" about the program to mod ernize and repair homes was on its wav today to 6.356 community chair men of the Better Housing Commit tees organized throughout the Nation. President Roosevelt's message, in the form of a letter to James A. Mof fett. Federal housing commissioner, was mailed last night. Moffett had told the White House the committees had reported pledges of 1.100.000 repair jobs and estimated $275,000,000 would be spent in the near future on repairing and modern izing the homes involved. The President spoke hopefully of further activity in the Spring, adding : 'Ίη other words, the American people will clearly see that the housing act provides for the Nation a way back to recovery and prosperity." Seventy Million Covered. The President wrote Moffett: "It is good to know that the Better Housing Committees now have a population coverage of approximately 70,000,000, and that 2,100 of these cities and towns are conducting house-to-house canvasses in which thousands of can vassers, in addition to the committee | groups, are carrying on this work." The President's letter follows: "This will acknowledge your en couraging memorandum on the oper ation of the national housing act. "I wish to express, through you, my gratification to the chairmen and members of the Community Better Housing Campaign Committees throughout the country because of the results they have accomplished in less than seven months of activity in call ing to the attention of property own ers the benefits to be derived under the national housing act in moderni zation and repair and also in con struction of new homes. Impressed by Report. "I am particularly impressed with your statement that 6,174 communi ties have selected chairmen of their Better Housing Committees, and that between 250.000 and 300,000 volunteer workers are participating, through these committees, in the work of ac quainting property owners with the uses they can make of the housing act. It is good to know also that the Better Housing Committees now have a population coverage oi approxi mately 70,000,000 and that 2,100 of these cities and town are conducting house-to-house canvasses in which thousands of canvassers, in addition to the committee groups, are carry ing on this work. "I note that to date calls have been made on over 6,000,000 properties, and ihat the property owners have pledged 1,100,000 jobs for modernization and repair for a total value of $275,000, 000, and that, in addition, you esti mate there has already been spent since last August approximately $250, 000,000 for modernization and repair. Sees Business Aided. "As you point out, with the con tinued active co-operation of our civic-minded committees, house-to house canvasses will be conducted by practically every community cam palgn committee, with many millions of home owners and business property owners yet to be contacted. This ac tivity means that, with the advent of Spring, an Immense volume of busi ness and employment will undoubted ly be generated. In other words, the American people will clearly see that the housing act provides for the Na tion a way back to recovery and pros perity. "In regard to construction of new homes, I am glad to know that en abling legislation has been passed during the last 60 days In 26 States, and that you anticipate prompt ac tion by the remaining States where enabling legislation is necessary, to permit the mutual mortgage insur ance plan to operate. That you al ready have received applications for millions of dollars of mortgage in surance. with approximately 30 per cent of the applications covering the construction of new homes, plainly in dicates we may expect a decided lm provement In the new-home-construc tlon Held. "I agree with you that the refund ing of existing mortgages in long term amortized mortgages, Insured un der the national housing act, will re suit in a safer mortgage structure for the country and will result In a much-needed Impetus to home con struction with a resultant tremendous demand for durable goods and labor, Invaluable benefits to business and the community in general."
