Their statements came as (he Senate began debate on a housing bill which would authorr/.e the .subsidies and allow the liovcrnmcnt to I\x ceilins; prices for new and used homes. The measure is the backbone ol Housing Expediter Wilson w. Wyatl's program for 2.700,000 new housing units for veterans bv the end of 1D47. Northmp said members of his association (p.ieslioned whether the subsidy program was not just a contrivance to bolster the OPA "hold-the-line front." He said out- and-out price increases lo boost production of critically short build- | ing materials would cost home builders only $200.000,000 whereas the subsidy program calls for three- times that expenditure for the same end. •j| The two lumber organisations also i^Jiarged that: " 1. While tin; Wyatt program was de.scribccl as an emergency veterans measure, it was actually a phm worked ont over n two year period by federal housim; agencies. 2. The OPA is directly responsible for a 5n per cent black market in lumber because it has been slow in granting lumber price increases. Bahr also said the Wyatt plan's emphasis on 500.000 prefabricated homes to be started this year may be a means of building up the CIO at the expense of the APL.
