HOUSING OUTLOOK FOR NEGROES WORSE, URBAN LEAGUE REPORT Housing Specialist Sees No Belief For Crowded and Homeless inl947 New York: New housing: for Negro occupancy reached a further low in 1946 as an al ready intolerble housing situ ation assumed crisis propor tions, Reginald A. Johrison, Director of Field Services and THE AMERICAN LEGION ' PAUL BUCKNER POST NO. 108 FIRST ANNUAL DANCE INFORMAL ! v Friday, February 21st, 1947 Convention Hall Crown Street, New Haven, Conn.

Cullen, Proprietors "GOOD FOOD OUR SPECIALTY" All Home Cooking We Bake Daily Catering Exclusively To Luncheons, Banquets and Dinner Parties housing coordinator of the National Urban League re ported this week. Pointing out that the end ot temporary war housing con struction had seriously reduc ed building of new units for the entire population, Mr. Johnson stated thatrecent re allocation of the government housing for emergency use in certain cities has had tne enecx of cuttinsr Negro unit-occu pancy even below the level of the war years. Of the total of 254,000 re use temporarv housing accom modations provided for veter ans during 194b, only 5,UUU, or less than two per cent, were specified for Negroes and, as late as. October, only l,bUU were available for actual use, the Urban Leagne spokesman pharo-ed. In contrast, it was pointed out, 15,000 special wan housing units tor iNearro occu- L'paney were constructed Tbe- tween 1940 and 194o, and dur ing the federal public housing program 129,000 units, or nine teen ner cent of the total, were earmarked for Negro occu pancy. "The sham decline in avail ability of new public, housing for Negroes has not been in any degree matched by an in crease in private construction for lower or middle income families." Mr. Johnson reveal ed. "Only a negligible amount of private money ever has gone into contraction ot nous iii sr for Negroes. As an ex ample, from 1939 to June, 1946 only 23,000 FHA insured units had been constructed for Ne groes throughout the country. While some privately financed housing construction for Ne groes now is under way in twenty or more cities, the amount is ngeligible, since private builders are concen trating on construction for the higher income families." The Urban League's report places much of the blame for the situation on failure of Con gress to enact the Wagner-El-lender-Taft Housing Bill. i f: 5- CHURCHES VARICK A. M. E.
