Plana for relieving the estimated shortage of 1,500,000 homes throughout tire country through diversion of a greater proportion of the nation's 122.000,000,000 In aavlngs deposit a Into home building are un der consideration by Secretary Her bert C.

The Commerce Sec retary considers that there haa been a tendency during the past few years for saving to find their way Into com mercial paper, bonds and similar se curities rather than' Into home build ing, while a crlrJcnl housing altuatlon has developed, with about 117 families for each 100 homes. The chief reli ance of the country in the necessary financing of noma building, In the opinion of Mr. Hoover, must be the sa vines Institution. With a total of $22,000,000,000 avail able from these aourcea, he bellevea it will be found, after eliminating building and loan societies and actual savings banks, who devote about SO per cent of their deposit to home building, that tha aavlnga depart ments of national bank, atate banka, trust companlee and lnuranca com panies, comprising mora than one-half of the total, probably do not loan more than 10 or 15 per cent of their aavlng asset in bousing. .

INVITED NATIONS ACCEPT Pacific and Far East Problems Alas Will Be Dlscusatd Irish Peace Mtttlnga Btgln President Atka 8nata to Dtfer 8ol ditr Bonua Bill. By EDWARD W. PICKARD. The United State last week resumed It leadership of Internationa! affairs, and President Hardlng'a world policy unfolded In a way that lead his warm supporters to believe bis plana for an association of nations to preserve the , peace of the world are on the eve of fulfillment. This cornea about through the President's Invitation to Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan to' send 'representative to a disarma ment reduction conference In Wash ington, and bl suggestion that tha meeting, If held, also undertake a set tlement of the Pacific and Far Eastern problems, China being aaked to par tlclpate In that part of the confer ence. Of course, the Invitation waa infor mal In nature, but the natlona named have received it with acclaim, and all have signified their willingness to ac cept the formal invitation when It la Issued, so It may be considered cer tain that the conference will ba held, probably In the coming autumn or possibly early next year. AH tha world is evincing Intense Interest In the plan, and certain of the lesser pow ers are eager to take part In the great conference. That the discussion will not be limited to the subjects men tioned is almost beyond doubt, and there la reason to believe that tha as sociation of nations with which Pres ident Harding hopes to aupplant tha League of Nation will be born at the Washington conference. Not only did the President forestall the action of congress, which waa passing finally on the naval bill con taining, the. Borah amendment asking,., the President to negotiate a navet Iday with Great Britain and Japan; be also went further than Borah and ' hla followers desired and broadened the proposition to Include land arm aments. It waa feared by many that Italy, and especially France, iwould refuse to reduce their military strength. France feels that ahe must be guaranteed against another attack by Germany, and Italy's main atrength la her army. Borah and others thtiught the Inclusion of land armaments might defeat the whola plan, but the administration thinks their fears are groundless and that an agreement for naval reduction may ba reached If the question of reducing; armlea la found embarasalng. Indeed, the governments of France and Italy were aa prompt aa that of Great Britain to accept Mr. Harding's invitation. Chlna'a approval of the plan cama next, and Japan, after carefully con sidering the Far Eastern phase of tha matter, Instructed Its embassy at Washington to accept, ao far aa) ' armament reduction la concerned. Before President Harding lasued tha Informal lnvltatlona, the leading states men of Great Britain were consulted by Ambassador Harvey and also by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, who was reported to be unofficially assisting Mr. Harvey In the matter. It la aald they .informed Washington of tha ' psychological moment for taking ac tion. Then Doctor Butler went to Parle and talked with French leaders, snd told correspondents that Presi dent Mlllerand waa highly enthuslaatlc over the American plan. "French and British atateamen agree with ma that I'realdent Hardlng'a proposal marks a fuming point In tbe history of tha world," said Doctor Butler. Premier Lloyd George'a announce ment of tbe project to the hodse of commons snd of the government's ap proval of it waa greeted with pro longed cheering. A fe days later there waa talk In London of a separata conference t tie re on Pacific mattera before the Washington meeting, be cause the premiers' Of Australia and New Zealand aald It would ba Impos sible for them to go horns and return to America almoat immediately. When this suggestion reached Washington the administration let It ba known that efforts to divert any part of tha pro posed conference Troui the American capital wauld not be acceptable. It waa aald Lloyd George and Lord Curxon, foreign minister, would coma . aa the repreaentativea of Great Brit ain, and thla stirred up an amusing row over there. The Tlniea declared editorially that neither of thosa men. la fitted "by his position, bis tampera UMMt, and hla paat career to take a di rect part In those negotiations.
