FSA Experiment May ;- Open Way For New ,- Demand For Staple • Construction of houses offers one possible means of disposing of sur- plus'cotton in Die future, according to officials of tlie Farm Security 'Administration W ho announced Saturday tlml 10 cottpu houses built by the FSA in 1030 have proven snlisfnclory. > Such ,• houses have "considerable vpossibilities In the postwar period," Michael L. Mascla, area engineer ii) tile reeional FSA office at Montgomery, Ala, has' reported. .These structure.? were mode with cotton duck'which had been donated by the Federal Smpliis Commodities Corporation as an experiment in low-cost housing for farm families. .' Each house contained nboul 24 ounces of colton duck to the square yard In the roof and exterior walls. This '.material was stretched over n backing plywood or composition board and then was coated with l£aii and linseed oil. A bedding cement was applied . upon this surface. The cement, contained casein Jjiid other' substances which also seived the purpose of processing the duck for resistance to fire.' The (fuck was smoothed lightly over Hits adhesive and nailed with copper and galvanized nails about six Inches .apart., • One advantage • of the cotton house, according to the FSA official, is the low heating cost. He said "it is almost air tijjht—so tight m'fact, Hint ft is difficult'to c.'osc a' closet, door without opening a \Undoiv A small fire In the living Urges Removal of War Housing To Campuses For Married Yets LANSING, Mich. (UP) — Use of temporary dwelling units and expansible .trailers to house married veterans who want to re-enter colleges and universities Is recommended by Dr. Eugene Elliott, state superintendent of public Instruction. At the conclusion'of the war, Elliott said thousands of reluming veterans,' who already arc married or will be, plim to continue their education, but that shortage of housing facilities will be a serious problem.. Dr. Elliott proposed his solution in a letter to Harold D. Smith, national budget director, who formerly served as Michigan Budget Chief. 1 The Michigan educator said thousands of (lie . government's temporary dwelling units could Ix. moved , onto college campuses to house "CU Joes" who want to comV plete their education and not be separated longer from their wives. Since most of the housing milts already arc equipped and lyive heating and cooking facilities, only sewer, water and light connections need bo .supplied. Dr. Elliott said. Declaring (hat between 40,000 and 50,000 men will want to return to college In Michigan after the war, Dr. Elliott said: "r discovered that many arc already married and nn- plher ,large group contemplates marriage at the end of tlic war Michigan universities ana colleges ,hnve few 'or no facilities 'to accom- odatc these new families, Not only are college dormitory facilities not available but there are few small apartments to rent In any of the cities where colleges, are located. ' "Unless we lake, steps to meet Ibis problem, It will bar thousands from, our , college.-! and universities, or If we do' not actually bar them from the Institutions we will force husbands and wives lo live In separate communities. J feel this Is socially undesirable and, too, I feel 'bat 'it Is soclaly undesirable to force young people who desire a college education to remain unmarried until they reach the ages of 30 or 35, >is will be the casq with many of our returning veterans."
