(An Editorial) The "housing shortage" is decried by everyone as the most critical item, and the most essential need in this postwar period. WHAT IS THE SOLUTION? First, let us examine WHAT IS BEING DONE and PROPOSED by THE GOVERNMENT to CORRECT the shortage i n the shortest time. Secondly, let us examine a simple, prompt solution that will provide desirable homes immediately. NEW HOUSING ADMINISTRATOR The new "National Housing Administrator," Wilson'Wyatf, former mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, has been charged by the President to correct this lack of homes. Although he has.had no experience in the building material or construction field, Mr. Wyatt proposes a broad fifteen-point program, a substantial part of which has nothing to do with the immediate housing shortage created to a large degree by government agency failure to change from, war to peace-time requirements. WYATT PROPOSALS The proposals of Mr. Wyatt include an immediate appropriation of $600,000,000 to subsidize building material producers, and particularly to aid in financing a NEW HOUSING INDUSTRY, which at present is an industry on paper only with negligible production facilities for use now, requiring a further extended time to get prepared to produce, and will place house building industry in the hands af a few gigantic firms or a few individuals, even though the Federal Government has for years striven to break up large combinations under the anti-trust laws. The Wyatt program further proposes an immediate appropriation of $250,000,000 : for TEMPORARY housing by revamping present war buildings, moving existing war structures to new locations, and the like. Nothing in this part of the propos,al is of a pcrmanent.relief nature. The program also calls for Federal appropriations of over 5 billion dollars in,the coming five year period, a substantial portion of which is for research, planning, slum, clearance and items not relieving the present housing shortage. Also included in this part of the program is the direct construction of 500,000 housing units by the government, although nowhere is concrete evidence given that the" present industry cannot do the job if materials were available. Too, priorities and allocations of materials for, are proposed, ,whjc]h definitely indicate that ; the new industry sponsored,ahd- financed by the government is t o receive the benefit of this material.channeling. This will cause displacement of millions of .construction and; building material workers, forcing further concentration in the larger centers of population, further aggravating an already over-burdened housing shortage, and requiring an,extended- government patronage in the future, the necessity of which has thus.been caused; by the gov- gpvernment itself. A never-ending chain. Examine the proposals above and ask yourself the question, DOES THIS PROr POSED PROGRAM answer the present housing shortage? The answer can only be NO, because time consumed in establishing the proposed new industry; new production equipment will have to be manufactured; workers must be recruited and trained; failures and shortcomings wilL have to be corrected, causing slow-downs of any schedule set up; and the home owner Will have lost that which he cherishes mast in a home—his own personality and? tastes which cannot be incorporated in production-line construction as desig'ns must be automatically limited. Is there a ready answer to this problem, one that will insure immediate construction and housing relief free of delay, labor displacement and the satisfaction of ,; individual personal desires? YES, SOLUTION Ov,er-night material production of homes can be thrown in^.high, gqar by simple prjce adjustments by OPA at the producer level on^a balanced basis of need, During the war, manufacturers increased production to unthpughtof volume -because, they were allowed a reasonable price for the item produced in balanced quantities needed. Producers are ready to do the same, thing fpr peace-time home con- stmction items, and without sibsides and waste of tax monies. This basic pro* duction fault can be immediately corrected: by OPA, if they have thq desire. The present shortage is primarily due to lack of insight, lack oi knowledge, of construction requirement, and lack of planning for the postwar period. Production, and ; mqre. production js needed now as during the war.
