MONDAY, MARCIJ18, 10-IG Says Remodeled Slums Won f ! Do F.D.R. Jr. Is Opposed To Makeshift Answer To Housing Problem (AUK.) COUH1ICU NEWS PAG?; r By KOHI.IIT HH'liAHDS l/nited Vress Stun' ('orrt'spimdenl NEW YORK. Mureh !8. <U!>> — Franklin O. Housevplt. Jr.. limiting Ix'ltei- housing for (JI's even brother Jmne.s hunts lor bener gov- erninchti sni<t today iluu he personally will oppose any atiempt.s to remodel slum areas as a makeshift answer, to the nation's housing shortage. The brothers Hoosevolt, fanning out in nil directions as it were, nre treating Kornewbat of a mental ]r,\x- r.rd for New York's politicians. The politico* are never quite certain jnsl where a Roosevelt will pop up r.ext. If they keep a U<;hl cyo on Loth sons, then up comes Mrs. FUR to disturb them. If the politicians are wise, they'll krep at least their second team v.-atchiiiB FDR Jr. because, as the Broadway folks illicit say, he is a "sharp, apple." Right now he's piet- ty hot under the collar—in the best tradition or his family. "The only way to lix up any slum a-oa is to knock it down ami start nil over," he explained, "rt you've seen slums, you must realize thai! it's practically impossible to achieve anything by simply remodeling." Young Roosevelt, who is a member of the Housing Committee for tbc American Veterans' Committee, made it plain however that he doesn't expect any miracles. "We're not opposed to prefabricated houses," he said. "In fact for certain areas they're definitely the best answer to the shortage. I don't think that they would work in New York, however, where homes are built vertically rather than horizontally, but for other parts of the CDlllHry they're Fine." Ti: a speech last week Roosevelt warned of a possible G.I. march on Washington. He implied today, with the famous Roosevelt chuckle, that perhaps somo congressmen didn't recognize a powder keg when they see it. "Ex-servicemen come to me all the time." he said, "and they want to know why wo don't get together nnd do something to get a housing program going. Their nerves are defiriitsly on edge right now. and Ihtir patiencp is certainly wearing thin." Roosevelt said that he wasn't kidding when he told a New York audience, if Hie worst comes to worst, that he was ready to join any group of ex-Gl's starting a Washington trek.
