ILYTHUVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KIWg TUESDAY, JULY 12, 1949 Veterans Obtain Large Refunds Homing Exptditer ForcM Compliance •y Contractors A total »r |1.5«,m47 ha,s been r»cover«! for veteraiu in connection with priority-built houses they purchutd and for which they were either over-charged or failed to receive all of the itenus called for in specifications, Housing Expediter Tight E Woods reported to the Veteran* Advisory Committee at a meeting yesterday. That figure and other figures included in the reoprt are a.s of June 10. 1949. Of the total recovered, $1,429.&31.81 was obtained through .settie- men Ls and the remaining $166,803.64 through litigation, On hand in Regional OHE offices on June 10 were ca-ses representing 2005 houses. cases were in various stages of inve-sllgalion, analysis, and settlement. The housing expediter also told the Veterans Advisory CommiUee that he has decided to grant w;iiv- Drs of veterans preference on uew luxury rental accommodations where the monthly rent is $50 per room or more and the total monthly rent is at least $125. Similarly, waivers of veterans preference will be granted in the sale of homes where the sale price is 525,000 or higher. Units in a project with a monthly rent below $50 a < oom and a total monthly rent of less than $125 pei unit win not be exempted from veterans preference. Waivers will be restricted to luxury accommodations in a structure or project. "I have Ulten this action," Mr. Wood* explained, "because a survey by our agency has shown that very few veteran. 1 ! can afford housing accommtxlatioriK renting monthly for $5*3 per room or more with a total rent of at least $125, or selling for $25,000 or more. At the .same time f plenty of such accommodation* are available for the relatively few veterans who can afford such A price for housing." The housing expediter pointed out that the waiver i? not auto- matte, "A bunder must apply for * waiver." he said. "If the expediter finds that ' nc facia are as stated, the waiver will be granted. But, we will not permit ft builder to set luxury remit or .sale prices on housing accommodation* in order to get out irotn under veterans preference, and then lower the rent or sale price, without granting veterans preference." Mr, Woods said the effect of the new policy will be to permit build- em «r owners to rent or sell .lui- ury accommodation^' while a construction project Ls still in the blueprint or construction jtage instead cff waltirtf until after It* completion.

Meanwhile tile federal debt has grown to more than »252 billion. The question businessmen ask Is how much 'higher can it safely go? If it's finally decided to go on spending at the old rnti. the nexl problem is just how the Treasury should borrow the m r -ney to meel the bills. Long-term bonds with compar (lively high Interest rates will ap ?eal to private Investors and institutions, and cost the Treasury most. Banks with money on the! hands just now because business loans are falling off are urgln medium-term Treasury notes wit! moderate yields. When there was more deman for business loans, which are muc more profitable to a bank, th Treasury's .practice of financing it cash needs with short-term cer tiricates with a low yield gave the banks a chance to keep any Idle funds rarnlng a little and still easily available when a good business came along. But last night the Treasury sold 1900 million of these short-term bills at an average rate of 0.923 per cent—two weeks ago It had to pay 1.151 per cent. Naturally, the banks don't rind the new low rate* too attractive. The Treasury also raises a little money, but not enough, by selling 10-year savings bonds to individuals. But the Treasury can't depend upon this source of revenue in • pinch. Therefore, the Treasury will hare to do its deficit financing through the b?nks or Insurance companies. It will have to decide how to do it fairly soon. The Treasury started its new year the first of this month with a deficit of ll.MO.OOO.- 000. The middle of September it has U.282,000,000 of two per cent bonds coming due. It will decide well before that Just how these are in be refunded. Many bankers hope the Treasury will deckle to Issue five-year bonds paying two per cent or better. This, they say, would find ready market, help the banks, and take some of the pressure off the Treasury for going Into th« market at frequent Intervals to borrow money at whatever rate Is possible at the time.
