, AUGUST 14, 1951 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE MINI Government Gives 'Go Ahead' Signal on House Construction ''!• WASHINGTON, Aug. 14. Iff)— It's O.K. with the government to go right ahead and .start building your dream house. Whether it's a tin bungalow or a big mansion doesn't matter. What Is ..important is that you have on hand or in sight all but • mail amounts of steel, copper or aluminum that will be needed after Sept. 30 to finish it. If you Don't, you nad better get an authorization before you start. Otherwise the house-warming might be delayed. Still busy explaining the newest government construction order (M-4A issued Aug. 3), National Production Authority officials emphasized anew today what It does an<! doesn't do. The main thing that it doesn't do insofar as home building Is concerned Is U> put any barrier in the way of starting construction. And the main thing that it does do Is to fix rigid limits on the quantities of scarce metals that may bs used without specific authoriza- tion after Sept. 30. If more metals will be needed than the allowable llmiU, an authorization and allotment of the Building Permits 15 cu. ft.

But for the home builder who has the materials or has them promised—all knit small quantities, that Is—nothing has to b« done. Just go ahead and start building The M-4A order set off all kinds of confusion as to what it meant to home building. Part of it, at least, exulted from the lack of a clear- ut explanation when it was issued. This has resulted In a barrage of uestions which now are being leared up as rapidly as possible. The order places all construction nder the NPA's Controlled Mate- ials Plan beginning Oct. 1, But It Hows builders "self-authorization" or small amounts of critical matc- lals. This means the builder can my within the allowable limits .gainst available supplies • without he formality of applying for a spe- iCic authorization, Government authority must be >btained for any house, whether itarted before or after Sept. 30, which cannot be built within the 'self-authorization" limits- What kind of a house can be built within the allowable limits Is matter of debate. Some contend nretty good house can be built. Others insist not much of a house. • COOLS • OIHUMIOIFIff • VCNTIlATEf • HIT1KJ • CHOI IA Til .-.

Towns anil cities all over the country were .affected . . but the consequences of failure hniij' with particular foreboding over New York and its jam-packed millions. With reservoirs standing nt a third of capacity, (he compelling need for additional water resources w;is suddenly thrust upon the attention of the most indifferent citl/.en. And communities everywhere, whether affected by the shortage or not, be^an appraising the status of Ihcir water supplies. They found a number of factors which were influencing the picture. Throughout America two patterns of population movement have been revealed in recent years. People are leaving the rural areas :md moving to the cities; people are leaving the cities and moving lo nearby suburbs. The result—a tremendous population growth in metropolitan areas. In terms of water supply, this means ever-increasing demand. The country cousin who settles in the city must now be •supplied. And so must the city cousin who becomes a suburbanite. He moves to Ihe suburbs because he finds (here (he urban facilities to which lie is accustomed in a more attractive setting. Water Is Your Cheapest Commcilily Use It Freely Blytheville Water Co.
