U. S. Launches Drive
To Stimulate Building Of Low-Cost Homes By the Associated Press j The Government has launched a Nation-wide campaign to stimu late direct action by private en terprise toward providing more lower-cost homes for sale or rent. All segments of the home building industry have been in vited to take part in c^scussion meetings in 65 key cities this week to see how the problem can be solved. This discussion program will extend to other cities and communities later in February and during March. Raymond M. Foley, administra tor of the Federal Housing and Home Finance Agency, said in a statement: “To provide this lower-cost housing in the volume needed re quires the earnest co-operation of all segments of the industry * ' *. It involves an industry-wide search for economies and efficien cies that will cut the cost of good housing." Building Code Criticized. The National Bureau of Stand ards in a simultaneous report said that building codes that “unduly restrict” the use of newer and cheaper materials increase hous ing costs and thus tend to hold down home -construction. In a survey of 2.634 municipali ties, the bureau said it found: Most building codes have not been overhauled in some time, and. in varying ways, are out of date (44 per cent are 11 to 25 years old). Many Areas Lack Lodes. Nearly one-third of the munici palities have no buliding regula tions—“a real hazard to the pub lic safety and often to the eco nomic interests of property own-, ers.” Some codes are not rigorous enough for safety’s sake. More than 200 municipalities are completely revising their codes, but the job of testing and evaluating new materials is too complex and exceeds their facil-j lties. Despite differences in climate and geography, greater uniform ity in codes is possible, which in turn would mean cheaper con-; struction and simplifying the problems of designers, builders and manufacturers.

AFL Studying Means Of Admitting Two Independent Unions By th* Associated Press MIAMI. Fla.. Feb. 7.—The American Federation of Labor to day considered steps to add al most a million to its claimed 8,000,000 members. The AFL's Executive Council re sumed sessions after a week end recess to consider restoring the International Association of Ma chinists to AFL membership. The IAM claims more than 600,000 members. In addition the council has been I Considering the application of the ■ Communications Workers of America, also an independent I union, for AFL membership. One major block to returning the IAM to the AFL fold was re ‘ ported to be conditions insisted upon by William Hutcheson, pres ident of the AFL Carpenters' Union. The IAM quit the AFL three years ago in a dispute with the carpenters over Jurisdictional rights. The IAM apparently is ready to' return to the AFL with the same jurisdictional status it had before its dispute with the carpenters. However, Mr. Hutcheson re portedly is insisting that the council whittle the IAM's former jurisdiction to give carpenters a greater privilege of representing union workers, particularly in milling work. Prospects for admitting either the IAM or the communications workers, which represents tele phone workers in most sections of the country, seemed remote. Besides Mr. Hutcheson's objec tions to the IAMs status in- the j AFL. the AFL's International Brotherhood of Electrical Work ers had similar protests against the status of the communications workers. ~ j The latter organization wants a charter in the AFL as an inde pendent union, but the electrical electrical workers demand that the communication union be come only a branch of the elec itrical workers. Another problem to be aired be fore the council was the fight among Canadian labor unions about communism. One group has been militant in attempting to segregate Communists from labor unions and wants AFL help in its drive. Over the week end the AFL's council indorsed the Truman ad ministration's defense and Euro pean aid programs and indicated | a willingness to join the CIO in ! membership in a new federation of Anti-Soviet labor movements. The council also was to consid | er the dispute between Frank Martel, head of the Detroit and Wayne County Federation of La bor, and Hugo Ernst, president of the AFL Hotel and Restaurant Employes’ Union. Mr. Ernst told a reporter he was attempting to make Mr. Martel “keep his nose” out of his union's business. Two of Mr. Ernst's locals have j pulled out of the Wayne County AFL group in protest against what they called “interference” from Mr. Martel. Dr. Ruhland Urges Change In Medical License System Laws regulating the practice of medicine in the United States are confusing and should be changed, in the opinion of Health Officer George C.
