COUNCIL ENDS SOVIET-IRANIAN CRISIS Housing Measure Given Approval Of Senate Group Construction Of More Than A Million Homes A Year Is Proposed WASHINGTON. April -1. IUPI The Senate Banking Committee today unanimously approved a bipartisan long-range housing bill designed ultimately to stimulate (.construction ,of more than a million homes a year. Committee chairman Robert p. Wagner. D.. N. Y., said he would bring the bill before the Senate next week, along with the administration's emergency Veterans Housing Bill, which the committee approved yesterday. The Veterans Housing measure is designed to obtain 2.700.000 new low-cost, homes Jor veterans .by the end of 1947. The long-ranee measure provides for federally-aided slum clearance and redevelopment, low-rent public housing, ami extensive rural housing programs. It would consolidate all federal housing activities under the National Housing Agency. The government, it is estimated, would spend $30,000,000 during the first year of the program. After five years, government spending would $133.000,000 a year and would remain at that figure in succeeding years. The long-range measure, sponsored by Wagner, Sen. Robert A. Taft, R.. O.. and ^cn. Allen J. EHender, D., La., carries provisions for: 1. Permanent consolidation of Federal Housing activities under the National Housing Agency. 2. Federal aid for slum clearance and redevelopment of blighted areas. 3. Federal aid to localities for low-rent housing. 4. Federal aid for rural housing. 5. Disposition of * war housing with preference for veterans. Action on the long-term housing program follows committee clearance, yesterday of t.rte administ r a- llbri's emergency Veterans Housing Bill, designed to provide 2,700,000 low-cost homes for veterans by the end of 1017. Tile banking committee restored to this measure $600.0011.000 in production subsidies, which had been cut out by the house. It provided for price ceilings on old homes, new homes and building lots, and authorized a government guarantee of ._ ricated homes and new-type building materials needed in the GI housing program.

(U.P.)—The deadlock in no- jrotintions to settle the soft coal strike continued todiiy us tlie first violence flared in tho four-day-old walkout. At the same time, Solid Fuels Administrator, J. A. Krug •unionneed new estimates of bituminous supplies in cou- mimoi-B' hands showed 51,182,000 tons on March 1—the highest figure- since last October. This represented an overall average of ;il days' supply. Hecause of uneven distribution, however, thc strike already has caused .some slowing down of industrial activity. There were signs that the mine operators and the United Mine Workers (API,) might recess their wage confcr- onces here for several days because of the dim outlook for *an early settlement.
