MONDAY, A PR IT, n BJ-YTHRVIT.LR (ARK.) COURIER NRWS ump Administration Busy Preparing Its Huge Priming Program liy KOUNt.T miTOHKii WASHINGTON. April n.—TI« : tit! news Is thai ihe jfoosevelf administration has decided lo try to "spend" the country out of ihe depression. The decision finally ivas rcnciictl by the President, and WI'A Ad- JCj'tlitsiriUor Harry Hopkins :u Rwum Springs. Pariher deivlop- rVntx are rapidly unfolding. Half a down for |mmp- i»K money into the economic .sy.s- ii:m, backed and press-agenicd by '•i:; many croups, are helm; piLshed [croiind in (he air.

It i.s certain that Mr Roosevelt will call for ai $3.000,000,000 of funds for WI'A and public works. II is not unlikely lliat the old PWA, whose machinery has -been kept oiled for a program such as is now imminent, will be merged with WPA and that Hie whole works-recovery program will be co-ordinated under Hopkins In order to get a fast slart, ihe merged organization would begin at ce on projects of both agencies BB/cli have been proposed and ipudicd bul have not been acted in because of lack of funds. Prominence of Harry Hopkins n the Roosevelt councils and in administration of the spendiii" •program makes it certain that comprehensive if not favorable consideration will be given lo a large..scale housing program, under government direction and financed by government- funds Hopkins always has wanted to build houses wilh WPA labor Jlousinr Planned 1111 rragram Various ideas as to housing as n part of the new spending program arc as far up in the air nnythfns else, but a significant amount of attention is hein" devoted lo possibilities of Jarw- Kcalc erection or pre-r.ibricalcd liomes. Some government experts insist that muss production of cheap prefabricated homes represents the only way to build cheap individual houses. They say'-'sevcral production units arc ' ready (o slart off In a big way and that WPA; labor could be used lo lay out s^jra. strccLs. cellars and ' wnler fiiiirs as well as to put (he hous- K together. According to the prc-fabrication experts, it's largely a question of getting the public used lo this tyi» of house and if someone will jiisl get a lot of them up there will be stimulus for a hiioc new industry. But this is only one idea among ninny and opposition from build- Ing trades unions, building male- rials interests ami oilier groups is likely to kill it. Early indications are (hat pump-priming proposals of whatever type will he (,'lo.wly scriitiimod in Conprcss and perhaps .subjected (<> considerable alteration. The proposal to lurn the public works program over lo Hopkins assuming- that Roosevelt decides he ivniils lo do (lint, i.s one which conceivably may cause an uproar on Capitol Hill.
