If what this conn-i try needs is more houses for less money, the Farm .Security Administration can build them. i The trouble with farm security i houses is thiil the.\ arc- not broken in to ^cily ways and probably would cause zoning authorities to hold up their hands in horror. Hut the houses are being built, farmers arc living in Iheni —and they don't look .so bad. G'f course they are not Park avenue houses.
