•LTTHETTLLE (ARK.) COUKIEK NEWS Rent Decontrols To Be Expedited • Inadequate Budget' To •ring Action, Tigh« Wood* Says CLEVH-AND, A U f. 18-W>—A budget cut will force his office lo decontrol one-third of the areas where rent controls are now in force, federal housing expediter Tighe Woods said yesterday. The lists for decontrol now are being prepared In Washington and nil! be announced In a week or 10 days, Woods said. Decontrol will become effective upon the announcement, he explained. About 1,000 count Is are still under rent control and the ceilings will be lifted in one-third of these, Woods said. The first list will be followed bv another list of actions, he added. This second list should come bfofe Oct. 1, Woods said. The two lists will make up the one-third .cut in the control program. "I do not think any communisms over 100,000 will be affected," Woods said. "The cuts will be countrywide, not. concentrated In any one particular section." Woods said he would meet with top regional advisors in Washington today to speed up preparations of the decontrol lists. After he left Washington for Cleveland to address the 28th national convention of the Disabled American Veterans, Woods decided on the program of decontrol as the. answer to a heavy slash in appropriations for his office's budget. "Our budget for the fiscal year »as slashed from $26 million to »21 million by the Senate and now has been cut further by the conference com 'ittees of both houses to »I7.500.000, he explained.
