WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1950 BLYTHKVJLLE (ARK.)' COURrEK NEWS PAGE ELEVEN Congress Group Pushes Work on Housing WASHINGTON, April t. (If) — » ftattllng Senate - House conferees' «n?ct today in a final effort to \voA out a compromise housing bill before the House begins, its Easter vacation Thursday. The fight centers around a proposed $250,000,000 authorization for the Federal National Mortgage Association. It may be decided by "Sressional parliamentarians in au"fluice of the 'meeting. The parliamentary . question Is whether the conferees, chosen from each chamber to iron out differences in bills . both have,, passed, have the right to earmark -$25,000,000 of the money lor construction loans for pre- fabricated housing. . Want $25 Million Some senators, including Senator Douglas (D-Ill), say that', unless the 525,000,000. is earmarked, they will oppose'any agreement. A stalemate would mean that Congress would not have an opportunity to act on any housing legislation until after the House returns April 18. Senator Maybank (D-SO) told're- porters last night after a lengthy closed door session that jnembers felt they had House good chance to get House .action tomorrow before the recess I( a compromise bill could be agreed to by noon today. Yesterday's meeting brought agrreement on several of the major points in dispute between the two houses. The conferees agreed to a $2,250,000,000 authorization for 'the Federal Housing Administration to carry on its mortgage insurance programs. This covers FHA mortgage Insurance for saleable and rental housing. The Senate had voted $1,750,000.000, and the House $2,750.000.000. Agree on Loans Afcreement also was reached on $5™i)bO,000 for FHA loans for apartment dwellings. The authorization —a compromise between the $400,000,000 voted by the Senate and the $600,000,000 voted by the House — will be used to cover applications received up to last March 1. The conferees also compromised on a $250,000,000 FHA mortgage Insurance program 'for five years for low cost houses for sale in so-called distant suburban areas. House members agreed to the $150,000,000 for direct'loans to G.L's as provided by the Senate bill. Ships Foul Up In Early Fog On Atlantic NEW YORK, April, S.
