(UP) — Nobody can build any tiling much, as you've read in the papers, unless he's a war veteran who wants to buHd a house. Now we've got Wilsort W. Wyalt, the housing expediter, before the Genate P.inking committee, seelc- .

Germany will not produce enough irJMts and fate herself, nnd her ex- Ppfts:wil! not provide sufficient liicome to Import them from other cpUntrles. Larger amounts of grains • nd potatoes will be found on the dinner table in the future. Statistical dctails ( Vof the nllfcd plan will be announced Thursday. It'was anproved yesterday by the United States. Russia, Great Britain, and Prance fifteri seven months of study''and negotiation. ;The heavy Industries that supplied Hitler's legions will go for reparations, official sources revealed., Substantial exports from Itplit industries will he used to pay for 1mports, particularly foods. /.Specific controls of the manufacture of raw materials will be decided at the peace conference. ';An annual production of 5.8 million tons of steel will be allowed. but .the production of magnesium, primary aluminum, synthetic rubber, oil, aircraft, sea-Gomg ships, •fid arms or ammunition of any type will be banned under the Allied program. ..iAmerican officials believe the •pproved plan will enable the long- delayed reparations program to be completed within B month. The Jour allied powers used the estimates of four groups of expcils to, determine what industrial equipment can be removed from Germany a s reparations—and still assure a minimum standard of living for .the once-proud reich. , In .arriving at the plan for Germany's future economy, the council estimated that'her population Jn 1949 would be about 66.500,000. It also was assumed that zonal boundaries will be eliminated for economic purposes, and that Ger- inany will be treated as one economic unit. .The council assumed that a foreign market will efist for German exports, and that label "made In Germany" will not prejudice buyers as it. did after . the first world war. Cuts will be made In the manufacture of machine tools and 9$her, heavy industries, but it is expected that "reasonable finan- clu^stability" will exist by 1949. ^ •Germany's metal, chemicals, and Machinery factories wi|l be the in'aln source ( of reparations. Her exports will consist largely of coal. Potash, timber, textiles, leathcr- goods. glass'and ceramics. the ei 'd of next year 2,700,000 roofs over the heads of ex-soldiers.

Sen. Homer Cnpehart of Ind. said say, of bath tubs, by giving the the trouble with Wyatt was thai, he manufn a vicious circle. "Now one more question," the senator sold. "Would you as a senator vo.(c to give nny one man as much jxwer as this bill would give you?" Thai slopped Wyalt. He blushed. He almost laughed. The senator said he was serious. He said he replied . he believed he'd trust Wyalt. This on all day long, with other scnalors arguing other points. Wyatt attempting to explain his Plans by means of charts .showing bricks, pli>e, and lumber in full color, and the controversy getting hot over Wyatt's proposed building subsidies. I hate yen to think about 'cm, they're so complicated. The ijeneral wanted an answer. Wyalt that If he were a senator, was n hard-working, conscientious man. The senator said he had no doubt Wyatt would build two million housc_s in two years. "But, give me the power that this bill gives you." added Sen. Capermrt. "and I could build 5.000.000 houses. Why, you can upset the entire economy of this nation." "Only I don't Intend to," Wyatt insisted. "And you could requisition every one of (he 125.000 motor trucks that come off the assembly lines each month and use them In the building Industry, •• the senator continued. "And " ."Yes, but " Wyatt tried to interrupt. "You cQuld take all the ply-; "wood, all the copper, all the brass', »H the light bulbs and use them in veterans' housing," Sen. Capehart added. . . "But I wouldn't <io all tho'so things," expediter Wyalt inslstcr, not even noticing when his collar pin snapped open. "Why, you could close down all the furniture factories In Ihe United States, because they use lumber." Sen. Capchart said. "But then we couldn't furnish till, houses." Wyatt retorted. "Oh, yes. you could furnish Hie houses," Sen. Capelmrt replied. "You Just couldn't furnish the furniture." "Oh." Wyatt said. "Now you're stopping commercial building for two years," the senator said. "What about the veteran who wants to build himself a place or business?" Wyatt, said that was a difficult problem, sen. Capelmrt said It was ] manufacturers cash rewords for making more than they Intended. Tlie House of Representatives turned down this Idea. What the Rcnntc'll do is problematical. I don't envy Wyalt his lob, hut I must report that he strikes me as solid cll.lzcn who'll do his dcart- levclest to get those houses built. If he wangles 'em. the Pharonhs. Ihomsclves, will be piddling little builders In comparison. An adult female chimpanzee is •bout three and one-half times as ?trong as a college athlete.
