' By W. Wodsworth Wood The housing spotlight today is on the returned veteran, and justly so. Several millions of our young men have come home to find that locat ing a job is only the beginning of their readjustment to civilian life. The greatest problem is finding a place to live. The veteran is the chief victim of the current housing shortage, and the united efforts of the Government and the entire home-building industry are centered on the task of providing him with shelter. The home-building industry has made great progress since the close of the war in reconverting to peace time production, but residential building is still insufficient to keep pace with swollen demands. The chief difficulty is the shortage of materials. The squeeze between op erating costs and ceiling prices has hampered industrial production, and work stoppages have also enor mously cut back supplies. In order to channel the essential materials into the 2,700.000 homes for veterans scheduled for 1946-7, the Civilian Production Administra tion has issued an order known as VHP-1. This directive prohibits all new construction or repairs to ex isting structures, except for low-cost homes built for veterans and “hard ship cases,” and certain necessary commercial, industrial and farm work. Second Order Helpful. Construction of veterans’ homes and a limited amount of other building is further stimulated by another CPA order, PR-33, which establishes a system of materials priorities. Without these priorities low-cost residential construction would be at a disadvantage in com peting for supplies with other types of building. PR-33 further provides that the Federal Housing Admin istration must approve the selling price of a home for which a priority rating is sought. In no case may the sales price be more than $10,000 (including lot). Furthermore, since $6,500 is the maximum price that most veterans can afford to pay, a recent directive issued by Housing Expediter Wilson Wyatt seeks to insure that at least half of the country's houses are sold below that figure. A price “dividing line” has been established, which is based on local building costs and geographical conditions, and varies for the different parts of the coun try. The veteran who cannot find a suitable rental and wishes to build a home today as a solution to his housing needs, should ask himself two questions. First, Is his job se cure and is he reasonably sure of staying in the community where he now lives and works? Second, can he afford to build a home of the type he needs? If the answer is affirmative to both ques tions, he may contact his local retail lumber dealer, who will‘suggest a builder to him. Lumber Dealers to Aid. The lumber dealer will also assist in the choice of land and in the se lection of an appropriate house plan. He or the builder will further de Shepherd Park Vicinity 1312 FLORAL ST. N.W.

The lumber dealer will also refer the veteran to a suitable lending agency where veterans’ loans may be negotiated. The qualified dealer will, in short, guide the veteran through all the steps required to build a home today. Gadgets __fContinued From First Page "> dark stripes are painted and al lowed to dry. The process is re versed for the light stripes.

This will not only : remove the dinginess but also if a light color is used, improve the light in the room.
