SUMNERS, Representative from Fifth slonnl District of Texas. with Congrcs- The Easy Way State Responsibilities When the 38th annual Governor's Conference was held in Oklahoma City, resolutions were adopted showing renewed determination ot the states lo hold tightly their sovereign rights. Thirty Governors attended and resolutions that were adopted received unanimous votes foe- enuse Hint Is required by the Conference rule. A number of subjects were covered in the renewal of intention lo conduct strictly stntc matters within the stales themselves. Duplication of effort and harassment of slate and local officials were cited as among the objections to federal encroachment In states' affairs, as well as the general thought that a continued ebutng of slntc sovereignty is n real danger. Exprcs- sions of the speakers were sometimes quite blunt. Governor Walter Edge of New Jersey spoke of the Federal Government's condescending "to return to the states in the form of benefits a small portion of the millions taken away In taxes." Oov. Edward Martin of Pennsylvania spearheaded the discussions of federal domination nt the opening session of the conference, appeal- Ing- to the states to resume their own financial responsibilities. "State budgets arc balanced nncl most of the stales have money in the bank," _he said. "The states could go a lorn; way toward 1 .-helping the financial condition of the Ied.eral government if they would take care of : their own financial responsibilities." He spoke ofthe states going "to Washington with tin ..'cups" and he averred tills was a major cause •of centralization of government and the unbalanced federal budget. ; . —SCOTTISH RITE.

All the angles hnve not yet leen figured out by Housing Expr.- litcr Wilson Wyatl's experts, but. f Congress docs not renew price onlrols iti some form applicable o Ihe housing program, the Na- ional Housing Agency will have t-o lo ji lot or fast erection of emergency shelters to cover these problems: Under Ihe Veterans' Housing Act, the Fcdernl Housing Admims: rut ion was authorized to put cell- ing prices on complcied housing •ind channel building materials IGto this "HI!" priority construction. The cosi of any house, however, is made up of the sum of the costs of its components—lumber, brick, plumbing and so forth. A cclllne price could be put on a completed house only if there were ceilinirs on Ihc components. So if the ceil- ngs nre taken off the components how can the roof be kept on the house? Furthermore, if there nre n° price ceilings o" building materials, what good nre the so-called "HH" priorities? If a building supply dealer can leEitimaiely sell his materials at .high prices to the first comer, there is no iioint In soiling Ihem nt lower prices to go Into priority housing on which there must be n ceiling. Another feature: of the. Pntman Housing Act provided for paying premiums for extra production ot scarce building nialcrials. Agreements hnve already been miulc or. how Ihese premiums, or subsidies, will be pnid for extra production of plywood, cluy products and gypsum paper liners. Agreements nre :il! ready on linrdwodo flooring, cnst iron soil pipe nnd healing convcc- toi's. Olhcrs nre in preparation. NOw that price ceilings are removed, all production cnii be sold nt prices even higher than provided us premium payments. So Ihcsn Incentives become meaningless, and Expediter Wyali mny have to exercise his option to terminate these premium payment, pinna. HIGHER PRICES DKI'EAT VET PROGRAM In Ihe same way, guaranteed market payments for new building uiuterhils and prefabricated housing niny become ineffective. With high, rr prices on stnndnrd building ma- (crlnls permissible, guaranteed payments on new materials would have to be still higher to encourage lliclr produclion nnd use. That would only defcal the main purpose or the vets' Itoiisine program, wlric!\ lo build as much low-cost, housing ns possible. One of the points eniphnsi/eil in Wynlt's first monthly progress report, Just issued. Is that about half of the 5:n,ooo HH priority dwelling nulls approved in Ihc first five months of IfltG will sell lor less than $7500 or rent for le.w than SGO n month. Wyatt snys this is loo high nnd Ihcrc must bo more mills to rent tor under Sin Tliis \vas hard enough under tlv OI'A ccilkigs existing up to JuneSt "If controls arc removc( or substantially weakened." s'.iys Wyntl, "the whole low-cost nalun of the program will be endangered." I.IO1RKR AT.KKAI>Y HAS INCItEASEI) President Tinman's OPA veto message stntement that under Ihc Toft nnd Wherry nniendnicnls, the avcrngc increase ol building materials, excluding lumber, would approximately 20 per cent, w;i based on OPA estimates rnnglns, President's statement because since" November the three principal grades or lumber, comprising M per ccnt of all sains, have nlrendy hnd price increases of 11 to 12 per cent. Bureau or Labor Statistics s:«ys lumber prices nre now 2S per cent above 19^. 90 per cent above 1B30. Removal of price controls on her might therefore have ICFS c f fret than on oilier building 111:1- torials. This is borne out by Cotton Northup, secretary of the National Retail Lumber Dealers' Association. He says there may be sonic lumber increases at first to meet black _ market competition but that j scon as the black market is eliminated, there should be more lumber and more mill work, better distributed and at less cost.
