Producers Council
Offers Suggestions
On Home Financing
The Producers Council, Inc., today
made four recommendations de
signed to streamline the procedure
for financing private residential
- construction after the war.
Irving W. Clark, chairman of the
council’s residential committee, listed
these suggestions:
That the Federal Housing Ad
, ministration be permitted to insure
I mortgages of single-family homes,
occupied by the owner, in amounts
up to 90 per cent of the appraised
value provided the appraisal does
not exceed, $7,000.
| _ Passage of State legislation per
mitting holders of trustee funds to
make direct investments in rental
housing under prescribed condi
Adoption of mortgage provisions
more favorable to borrowers.
Discontinuance “as soon as pos
sible” of Regulation W of the Fed
eral Reserve Board which restricts
the time allowed for repayment of
loans made for modernization and
repair of homes.
“The stringencies of the depres
sion years do not appear to be in
prospect for some time. Accord
ingly, there is no general need for
j providing additional financing in
! eentives. Instead, the need is to
i streamline financing procedures so
as to be sure that they are truly
sound and provide a check upon
unsound methods, both in financing
! and in construction,” Mr. Clark
The council is a national organi
zation of manufacturers of building
materials and equipment.

House Report Bares
Costly 1941 Ship Deal
The United States Government
lost heavily on the Maritime Com
mission's investment in 10 ships,
averaging 24 years of age, which it
| bought in 1941 from the Southern
Pacific Co., the House Merchant
Marine Committee declared yester
day in a report on the transaction.
The commission, the report said,
paid $4,732,952 for the vessels, which
it bought virtually sight unseen,
and then was forced to spend $2,
653,611 for repairs and alterations
to fit them for off-shore service.
The ships had been operated earlier j
as the Morgan Line.
Testimony before the committee!
by representatives of the Southern!
Pacific Co. was described in the
report as "deliberately intended to
mislead’’ and "most reprehensible.”
The price paid for the 10 vessels,
the committee found, "consider
ably exceeded their fair market
In San Francisco, t^ie Associated
Press reported, A. T. Mercier, South
ern Pacific president, dqeclared the
"price paid was not excessive and,
in fact, was less than what the com
pany regarded as the then fair
market value of the ships.”
Willys Is Disclosed
As 'Buz Bomb' Builder
; 3y the Associated Press.
TOLEDO, Ohio. Dec. 9.—An Amer
ican version of the Nazi V-l "buzz
bomb’ is in production at the
Willys-Overland Motors plant here,
President Charles E. Sorenson dis
closed yesterday.
An experimental model of the
weapon was jet-propelled through
the air October 11. just 60 days
after junk parts of a Nazi bomb
were flown from England, the Air
Service Technical Command said.
The command did not disclose the
location of its proving grounds.
Yankee genius improved on the
German version, which terrorized
London last summer, the ATSC
stated, and its launching ramp is
better because it can be built in
four days, whereas the Nazis require
two weeks.

C&P Refinancing
Plan Given Approval
The Chesapeake & Potomac Tele
phone Co. was authorized yesterday
by the Public Utilities Commission
to issue renewal of notes amounting
to $1,975,000 to the American Tele
phone St Telegraph Co. to finance
promissory notes.
The local company incurred its
indebtedness in the "acquisition of,
and the capital net additions to, its
telephone plant and equipment in
the. District,” the commission said.
All of the $50,000,000 of common
stock of the C. & P. Co. is owned by
the American Co.
The commission also agreed to a
request of the company for authority
to Issue additional notes, provided
total indebtedness to the American
Co. will not exceed $5,000,000.
"The indebtedness, actual and
proposed, to the American Co. con
stitutes a relatively small proportion
of the total capital ef the company,”
the PUC decision stated.-. "In view
of these facts, the commission is of
the opinion that an indebtdeness of
$5,000,000 to the American Co. will
not adversely affect the public in
terest and that the application of
the company should be grfnted.”

Alexandrian Wins
Architectural Award
Chief Petty Officer Theodore Lud
erowski, 1611 Preston road, Alexan
dria, has been awarded honorable
mention and a $100 War Bond in an
architectural competition sponsored
by the Bituminous Coal Association.
According to Mr. Luderowski, the
problem was the design of a base
ment to contain a coal furnace and
facilities for storing and using coal
with the greatest efficiency. In ad
dition, the basement was to contain
a recreation room and it was this
feature of Mr. LudefOwskl’s design
which he considers the most worthy
of note.
In order to gain light in a base
ment below ground level, a portion
of the living room floor was removed
making a sort of mezzanine arrange
ment, and the wall at this end of
the living room was constructed en
tirely of glass in order to provide
light for the basement. A portion
of the recreation room also was de
