SLUM CLEARANCE
ACCORD FORECAST
Wagner Predicts Experts
Will Agree on Long
Term Program.
By ths Associated Press.
Senator Wagner,'Democrat, of New
York, predicted yesterday that admin
istration housing experts would agree
on a long-time elum clearance pro
gram early this week, followed quickly
by introduction of legislation.
At the same time, it was disclosed
that a bill to extend the Federal
Housing Administration’s power to in
sure modernization and repair loans
had been drafted and would be pre
, aented to Congress tomorrow or Tues
day.
The President’s housing advisors
tiave been at odds over the amount of
iederal money to be put up for loans
and grants to local communities to
carry out slum clearance work.
May Ask for $100,000,000.
Wagner declined to say what sum
Would be sought, but indications were
It would be much less than the $?00,
000.000 to $400,000,000 he originally
estimated for the first year. In some
quarters the amount was estimated
Bl ilUU.UVJU.UUU.
"There have been no real points of
difference among those working on the
housing problem," Wagner said.
"We all have been agreed on two
principles: One. that Federal aid must
be advanced to carry on slum clear
ance and, two. that the initiative must
come from local communities.
"There are two ways in which Fed
eral assistance might be given. It
might be In the form of loans and
grants over a period of years or it
might be in the form of lump sum
grants.
"We will have another meeting
Monday or Tuesday and I am sure a
bill wiil be ready for introduction by
the end of the week."
Wants Sum Kept Down.
Peter Grimm, one housing advisor,
and Secretary Morgenthau conferred
with President Roosevelt a week ago.
It was said authoritatively that while
the President wanted a broad housing
plan enacted this session, he also
wanted to keep the appropriation
down to a minimum.
The slum clearance and moderniza
tion and repair measures are two
phases of a three-point housing pro
gram. The third is stimulation of
private construction of homes costing
less than $5,000 through extension of
the Housing Administration’s author
ity to insure mortgages.
Chairmen Fletcher of the Senate
Banking Committee and Steagall of
the House Banking Committee will in
troduce the bills extending authority
to insure modernization and repair
loans up to 20 per cent of a bank's
total loans.
This authority expires April 1. The
extension would be to December 31.

pany’s suit was directed at Secretary

Hawes Declares Congress
Has Power to Destroy
Commonwealth.
Harry B. Hawes, former Senator
from Missouri, declared Friday night
that the United States Congress might
utterly destroy the newly-established
commonwealth of the Philippines by
wrecking its economic life.
Hawes, co-author of the Philippine
Independence act, was the guest of
honor and main speaker at a dinner
given by the Woman's National Demo
cratic Club.
Pleading for continuation of free
trade between the Philippines and the
United States, which he said was
forced upon the Filipinos to become
the basis of their economic structure,
for at least 10 years after complete
independence of the islands on July 4,
1946. Hawes said:
“The Philippine commonwealth will
succeed if Philippine officials will pre
serve law and order and write into
i statute law those things that their
i constitution provides and if they will
continue their work of education,
sanitation and health. That is their
part of the job.
I'. S. Can Wreck Commonwealth.
"But it is within the power of the
United States Congress to utterly de
stroy the commonwealth by wrecking
its economic life.
"It is within the power of our Con
gress to wreck a world record in en
lightened colonization, to tear down
an American ideal of 37 years, to de
stroy the belief in the Orient that
Americans are great and liberal ad
minictratnrc
“We confined them to trade exclu
sively with the United States.
“Until the recent unprecedented in
filtration of Japanese goods in the
1 islands, within the period of the last
five years, the Philipines was the
; eighth best customer the United States
j had in the world.
“That is something to think about.
They have had no trade relations with
the outside w-orld that are worthy of
consideration. They have had no op
portunity of building up a trade with
foreign countries. The American
Congress had enacted inhibitions
which prevented this being done.
Three Sources of Islands’ Life.
“Just as some of our States depend
for their prosperity upon manufac
tures, others upon agriculture, others
upon mining, others upon special pro
ductions of one kind or another, the
three great sources of national life in
the Philippines, which furnish its life
blood, are its sugar, its coconut and its
hemp.
“We gave Spain 10 years to adjust
its relations with the Islands after our
victory. Now the question is, whether
, we are going to destroy the sugar busi
ness and the coconut business and
w’hether we w'ill preserve the free flow
of raw material of hemp, not the
manufactured article, but the raw ma
terial for the use of our manufac
turers.”
Former Senator Hawes also reviewed
briefly the history of Philippine
American relations since the United
States occupied the islands in 1898.
Quintin Paredes, resident commis
sioner from the Philippines, gave a
brief talk also at the dinner.

We arc beginning tomorrow a very
elaborate plan of intensive improvements.
Not only for the betterment of the serv*
t ice, but for the carrying out more effectu
ally and efficiently what has become
famous throughout the country as the
exclusive Sloane manner of presentation.
Like all progressive moves even prices
are involved. We are going to discon
tinue certain lines of furniture; other
lines need rehabilitation. These are in
evitable necessities in such a store as we
aim to conduct. Then the slogan for
the next few succeeding weeks will be
“BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL”—for we
are making tremendous reductions on
the suites and separate pieces elected to go.
We. believe you’ll find it greatly to
your advantage to attend this event, for
in its sacrifices we arc ignoring the present
pecuniary loss—and instead fixing our
eyes upon visions of the Better Sloane's
now in the making.
