Main Phone 515 Housing Agency Expfains Paper No Attack Intended On Building Industry, Official Declares Vigorous denial that, the National Housing Agency's recent controversial Bulletin No. 2 entitled "Komms Costs" was intended as an attack on Ihe building industry, or (lint it was intended us a "political document" to encourage ICRlslntion seeking to set up a $25.000,000 Rovcriuncnt research agency on housing, is made by John B. niaudford. Jr.. head of NHA, In a tetter received by the trade magazine Practical Builder, and made public loday. Mr. Blanford says the government bulletin was Issued primarily for the building and liomc- flnnnclng industry, and was "an earnest effort to state a problem." Soon after the printed .pamphlets were distributed, however, newspapers used the bulletin as the basis for stories indicating n pessimistic or frustrated attitude toward future housing programs he says. Mr. Blandford's letter was Iris reply to a widely discussed bulletin-by Practical liuildcr. nclim? as spokesman for the building Industry, sharply culling NHA to tusk for the charges in i[.s "Housinr Costs" pamphlet and proclaiming that the dollars spent on housing today buy the best uiicl most, substantial values that American dollars can buy anywhere. In his reply. Mr. Blandford says: 'There fc n i;real deal of difference between saying thai hiis- ing 'costs too much 1 in a manner which can be construed as an argument, against, home building nnd on the other hand, pointing out thr.t housing 'costs loo much- to enable private building enterprise to serve the great mass market to its own benefit and the benefit of all those able to pay' for .shelter produced within certain price brackets." "ft 1 seems to me that arguments as to whether building costs nre high in relation to • the over-all cost ol living or the cost of autos, etc., are relatively unimportant. The Important thing is that until the cost of owning or renting new homes is lowered, millions of American families can't lAve them nnrt the building industry can't supply them. " 'Housing Costs' was Issued primarily as a bulletin for the Inilld- nnd liome-finaiicin industry. It was an earnest effort to state-a LINCOLN NEVER DIED...
