At Chicago, the Harvester Council of the United Farm Equipment and Metal Workers Union (CIO) approved a strike .settlement plan reached by union and company of- 'icial.s at Washington earlier this week. The new contract proposal provides for a wage increase of 18 cents an hour and for a retroactive increase of 10 per cent to last Oct. 1. The settlement proposal now goes to the union's locals for apprval. About lip.OOO Harvester workers have been on strike for 82 days, tying up production of farm machinery. Lone Oak Dam Now Completed Project Is Sponsored By State To Provide Place For Outings It's fishing time at Lone Oak nml the lake is ready for the public. The new dam has been constructed and 20,000 fingerlitig bream provided the sale price is under $15,000 or the rental under $120 a month. CPA officials said the step was taken to get such homes "out! of tiic way fast." | The action was taken following i complaints that the housing order i was too narrow to cover many deserving cases. Originally only veterans or persons building veterans' housing were eligible for priorities assistance. Future homes SiuiH vmdcr Uic program must sell for not more than $10,000 or rent for not more than $80 a month. Meanwhile, tho House was ex- i peeled to take early action on the Senate version of the controversial' Patman housing bill. It cither can vote on the bill immediately or send it to a conference committee to work out a compromise measure. The major difference in the two bills is $600.000.000 in materials subsidies which the Senate approved but the House rejected. Republicans led the House fight against subsidies but their opposition appeared to be (timinisliing somewhat. Rep. Fred L. Crawford, Mich, ranking Republican member of the House Banking Committee, said he believed the Kouse would accept the Senate version "by a slight margin:" Rep. Ralph A. Gamble, R. N.-Y N predicted, however, that the Senate figure may be cut from 5600.000,000 to $300.000,000. At the same time, Sen. Robert A Tnfl, R. D. said he thought Con- press should take filial action this this year on a long-range housini bill designed to stimulate construction of 15000,000 new housing units during the postwar decade. The Senate is expected to vote on it Monday. Tntt said the bill was perhaps one of the most important to come before Congress this year. He said it would give "decent housing" to all of this country's 37,000,000 families. Under the government's broadened TioushiR order, priorities assistance will be granted to the following groups: 1. Members of the armed forces, the Merchant Marine. Americans who served with Allied forces during the war, widows of men killed in service and widows of World War If veterans living with a child of the deceased. 2. Food producers who need to build, alter, or repair farm dwellings to maintain or increase essential food production.
