To .provide these jicco.inmocltit lious.wilh Hie least possibic .delay, Mr. Klulznlck called on War Mousing Centers and Hoiiies Registration Centers ui.w .industry' areas to exert every effort to induce property owners to take in "war guests" an<l to convert suitable structures; Many Properties Available There are many such properties located : in the critical .housing areas which lend themselves , to conversion purposes, with a coin- piu'allyely smn.ll use of. .critical materials these structures ofleji can be converted lo provide nccpimno- dalions for war workers. ."Naturally, every effort, .will be made lo use homes .as they now stand, without reporting to alterations of any .kind," Mi-. Kllitznick, who heads tiie NHA's Home U^c Eeryjce, pointed out. "This program can be greatly stimulated if sniall- families living in large homes will adjust their needs to the use of less space and rent out part of their property to war workers." ptlier devices for making accommodations available to war work- eis include Olscouiaglng the in- migrat.ion oi persons jvho have no part in the war effort; encouraging non-esseiUial persons already living In n congested areiv to move to locations v,heic housing conditions .are no so critical; and extending commuting areas to take in suburbs and outlying areas funds, .manage it, niid pay the ostler a.u eqiijtablo rental.

Two Plans (rf Operation There ore Uo plans wmch may be'tollowed in providing this housing—One is based on the ilse of pruate funds, the other is leasing of-properties to _tho Goieimnctil. Under the privately financed pla'n, Ihc propel ty owner . must agree that .the units ci wiled by such conversion work will be made available only to war workers, but he" will ictain the management of his own property : Under the publicly - financed plan^i the Government will lease a 'property foi a peiiod of sei'en jears, conveit it ,uth Government New Food Czar Will Mobilize 'Farm Shock Troops', F.

He told a press conference to- lay thai mobilizing farm .shock rpO|)s will be one of the first- jobs of the new f<md administrator, Chester C. Davis. Mr. Roosevelt said that Davis will take over compete, authority regarding food dis- r'.bullfm and production from AB- •icuHure Secretary Claude Wiek- ird. Davis' job will include setling ip (arm price ceilings, In cooi>era- Iqn wJlli.tUe OPA. Wickard' duties vlll return to what they were bc- ore he was ;nac|e food adjnhils- rator.

The President says thai, he himself ivill have the final authority in all (luestlons between Davis and Wicknrd. Pcfeiidlng operations of the Selective Service Act regarding farm worktr .deferments, tlie President declared .that -more than hulf-a- iiiillion agricultural workers have been deferred from military. service (his year. He declared that an ad- .dltlonal ;l!>rec-milllon between 18 and '37 years of age can expect deferment through thc rest of the year.

The brick piers used ?s vertical supports also require no atlcnlion, nnd the nsphall shingled roof is both durnWe and resistant lo lire. The sweating of walls and windows so common in an uninsula- ted torn is materially reduced because the glass blocks arc effective insulalprs.

For service buildings, such as production buljdings on farms, asphalt roll roofing is the most practical answer. For homes or other buildings with pitched roofs, nsphnlt strip shingles can be used. According to figr.res recently published by the Department of Commerce there arc approximately 30 million one and two - family homes in the United tales. As the .roof life of nu average home is estimated nt iiftecn years, this means that .about two million homes are in need of re-roofing every year.
