Priorities now on file will bo honored, after which deliveries will t>e made on a "first conic, first ( served" basis, according to innnu- , facturors. Until the decontrol order, oak rioorinrr had been allocated 100 per cent to the veterans' housing program. I Under the new setup, non-vclcr- ( an.s as well is veterans are per- 1 milted to build homes for their own year-round occupancy. The $10,000 celling nn new homes has l>cen abolished, but restrictions remain In force with regard to s\r,v. Each new dwelling Is limited to n floor area of 1,500 square feet. This ruling Is designed to prevent construction of so-called luxury homes at a time when millions of low and moderate pric-cil housing unlt.s are needed desperately. ' Almmt Indispensable | Oak flooring, one of the materials deemed almost indispensable for completion of these dwellings, i has been scarce for several years Despite the racl that it is now comliij; from the mills In the greatest volume since 1942 ami is morn rapidly available than at any Unio since before the war, demand still outstrips supply. i An important factor in the continued heavy demand, builders report i.s (he widespread prelercncj for oak iloors in stores, .schools, i churches and other structures nee- essary In areas or new honslnc dn-- I vclopnicnts Controls on erection of ! such buildings were liberalized nl ' the time I lie housing regulations were cased. The ;nT«;ure of these demands, added lo (hose of hoii.s- iiiK. has made It difficult for manufacturers lo (Hi ortttrs as promptly as they would like With production mounting steadily, however, deliveries should be accelerated considerably in the- coining months.
