Phone 124 AJgpns, Iowa 9-10 *^^ OMES... but how? -An Editorial We have been hearing a lot recently about the housing shortage and mass production of homes by new government subsidized industries. Let's look into what is proposed for us in this new government program and think straight on this matter to make sure we are really doctoring the cause of our trouble and not merely taking paih-killer for the symptoms,* Mr. Wilson Wyatt, former mayor of Lou isville, Kentucky, and . now National Housing Administrator, wants to. spend $600,000,000 subsidizing a big new privately owned prefabricated housing industry—at taxpayers' expense. This industry would place house building in'the hands of a few gigantic firms or a few individuals. In effect, this would create a monopoly to the detriment of local labor and business, and strikes us as a strange procedure in view of the fight for years' against concentration of industrial power in the hands of a few people. Obviously we want homes—a lot of them —and good ones—but let's try to find a horse sense solution and not knock ourselves out looking for magic formulas.. The facts-are this scheme is on paper only. It will take from 8 months to a year to get going, cost hundreds of millions at a time when the public debt is already too big, and is bound to have a bad effect on our own local carpenters, bricklayers, suppliers and business men. Even so, it might be worth the sacrifice if there were no other solution. . We think there IS another solution. In all this hubbub over getting new homes, someone seems to have overlooked our own great building trades and industry— the second largest business in the country, employing 6,000,000 people. This great building industry is manned, experienced and ready to build homes RIGHT NOW in every local area—including our own. Why aren't they at work right now? ijr,.v.-^P - iv,^-,* ; '"BECAUSE THEY LACK MATERIALS. ' »'. ' ' That's a hard cold fact and we must quit kidding ourselves and get at the TRUTH about the situation. If materials were available, the building trades could start your houses tomorrow. Ask your own carpenter or contractor and he'll tell you. What this country needs is not a fancy new way of building homes (at taxpayers' expense), BUT THE MATERIALS TO BUILD THEM WITH. Break the bottleneck in materials and you'll see homes going up all over town. And it's our opinion that they would be better homes, better constructed, and more to the individual's taste. . ' The actual process of constructing houses, except during wartime labor shortage, has never been too much of a problem. As far back as 1925 the building industry of this country built 937,000 good homes in addition to $5,000,000 industrial construction, which was the equivalent of 900,000 more homes. It's our guess, that they could go well past the million mark with today's improved techniques, if they were given-the materials so desperately .needed. And they would do this without new Government subsidies at taxpayers' expense. We have no bones to pick with prefabricated houses as such. That's a matter ol individual taste, altho we sometimes wonder whether women will give up very easily their dreams of. a personalized home for a factory planned model that looks about the same as seven dozen others down the street. Our,contention is that the prefabricating industry ought to stand on its own feet and not be supported by taxpayers' money to the detri ment of our own local trades .and industry depending on home building for thei r livelihood, • ' How can we get materials flowing? There are several direct and important things to do—the sooner the better. 1. Make a fair adjustment on strikes. Get them settled so we can start making pipes, wire, wallboard and bathroom equipment. The longer workmen sit around doing nothing, the more aggravated the -situation beconies. 2. Make wh§t adjustments are necessary on prices of house 1 lumber to get production going. It is a fact that in some cases the present schedule is 'actually preventing production of materials, EXAMPLE: The present OPA prices offer a premium to mills who ynli cut heavy timbers for export out of this coim try but penalize mills, who cut siding, sheathing and flooring for the homes we need in this country. This doesn't make sense. Hundreds of mills who could be producing lumber for homes are closed down tight because present price ceilings would run them into bankruptcy. We believe in holding the price line to prevent inflation, but we will never get very far if production continues to be strangled, If a small adjustment will break the log jam—let's dp it. (The; building industry pays the increase necessary to get production of lumber going would not add more than $35,00 to the cost of an average house.) 3. Qwt out red tape and endless regulations. The more "the planners" try to plan our lives for us, the farther we seem to get into trouble, It's about time we. gave the g9o4 American virtues oj independence, initiative and hard work a chance to make themselves felt, • .
