FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COUEIER NEWS PAGE NltfH the maximum a family can have and still be allowed in a project, he'll have 'U> n.ove. Where? That will be his problem. He'll have to find, now that his income his Improved, living quarters in some private dwelling where the rent mav be higher. Through this checking on Income, the moving in and out, over a period of years many low-Income families will be able to get the benefits of public housing. The 810.000 units to be buitt under the program will house about 3,200,000 persons. With a fairly steady turnover—spread over perhaps 40 years. Government experts think a s many as 16,000,000 persons will have found homes in public housing units. THE NATION TODAY Ability to Pay to Be Main Factor fn Determining Rents in Housing Plan Okayed by Congressmen (Editor's Note: This Is the fourth of five stories on the government's new public houslni program.) By James Mar low WASHINGTON, July ». (fP>— Who'll get into the new homes built •nder the governments public housing program? What rent will they payV The housing is for people now forced to live In slums or rundown .aoines because their Income Is so low they can't afford the higher renti ™i better dwellings. Veterans and their families let first consideration for »n opining in a public housing project rf everything Is equal. For instance: Preference For Veterans Jones Is a veteran. Smtth Isn't. Both live in • slum that's being !orn down. Jones will have prcfer- :nce over'Smith In getting Into a public housing unit. The rents will vary from city to •:ily, depending on the situation in each place where there's a housing project. And even wltl\ln on protect in any one city rents ulll vary, even for t'he same kind of accomo dations. For example: Jones has A wife and three smnll children. Smith has a wife and three small children. They live side by side, occupying exactly the same number of rooms, and the same kind of rooms. But— Jones may pay a little higher rent than Smith, if Jones' Income Is a little higher than Smith's. In each project there'll be a maximum rent that can be charged anyone. Also, there'll lie a minimum: The least rent anyone can pay and still be allowed Into a project. A family's entire Income may be from some welfare agency—a family on relief—but if It gets into a public housing unit it will have to pay the minum rent. _^ Average Rent May Be $23 ID} At this moment, before any of the housing is built, government experts think the average rent that will be charged families In the various projects should run around $?3 a month, plus 17 for utilities. Since that's an average figure, some lamilEes will pay more, some less. Every family must pay at least 30 per cent ol its income in rent, minus tlOO for each child under 21. For example: Jones, with three small children, has an income of $1,800. Knock off S100 for each of his children. That leaves him with an income of 11.500 on which his rent can be figured. Twenty per cent, of {1.500 Is $300 which, divided by 12 months, would make hi-, monthly rent $25. What kind of income docs a family have to have to be admitted In one of the projects. At this time no one can give flat answer. It's loo soon to say. But guesses can be made. Under n public housing'act passed in 1937 by Congress. 191.000 public units were built. The average income of families bcins admitted to them in 1948 was 81,481. The average- incom of familie: admitted to the new units may rut higher or lower than $1,481. thai will depend upon the economi< condition of the country when thl P units »re ready to bt lived in. Not a Permanent Abode But—once a family is admitted, that doesn't mean it can stay there forever. To be admitted at all. its j income will have to be under a certain figure. (The amount will be decided later in each project.) A constant check will be made on each family's income Ihereafter. If, say Jones' income finally goes above More Hot Days Ahead, Says Weatherman By Tk« There was some relief in parts or the nation'! heat belt today but there's still lots of hot weather around and more coming Thundershowera and Canadian breezes helped cool off some of the hot spots In the Eastern states and the Great Lakes region. But the hot and humid weather ol I he last week persisted from the Rockies southward into Texas. There rere no tO-degree read- Ings, yesterday over the eastern areas. Rain fell in tome sections. But there was not enough rain in the Northeastern states to break the seven week old drought. Farm crops have- suffered millions of dollars damage from the long dry spell. The Mercury hit into the 90's In Montana, the Dakatos, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and Oklahoma. It was above 100 in parts of Texas, hitting 101 at Abilene and Amarlllo and 100 at Houston,. Milwaukee was in line for some o( the cool air and the day's high was 72. Chicago got some cooling off. Navy Surplus Ad Includes Aircraft Carrier, LCT WASHINGTON. July 8.

Mac-Arthur Concerned The resulting labor problem has become so great, and Communist Influence has been handed so much to work with, that the government is now thinking about declaring ft stale of emergency.
