"Once the building wave stark rolling, it will carry u.self along.

CHICAGO.—A private enterprise plan to build a million houses a .ve;i]' soon after war's end was outlined yesterday by .Joseph )]. Mason, editor of Amecicnii Builder magazine, who declared: "This is the way lo bridge the gap from war to peace. Private builders can provide homes as well as jobs far soldiers without government subsidies. The two keys are a liberal national financing pluti and an improved building technique, llial will bring about lower costs.

"Jn effect, {lie builder.-; of Ihe country arc asking for an Improved, liberalised post-war HfA financing • plan, Incorporating some of Ihc i successful. idras developed In war licuslUB," Mason said. ".Sucti a postwar FHA plan should be drawn up in the near future. Legislation will lie needed to expand and revllalize FHA, which has Ihe confidence and .support of private builders because it has aidqd private enterprise rather (ban competed wilh it, a.s other BOVfrnment agencies have. "Wiilt u .satisfactory post-war finance plan available, private builders will be able to erect a million houses n year at 'prices ranging from $2800 lo $8800-lhus serving all classes of people without costly government subsidies. "Planned garden communities,! belter architecture, better construe- i tioir methods could be secured A! national finance plan of this kind i could bc used lo raise the whole level of home finality. "The need for costly public lious- g would be diminished and could be largely confined to reconstruction of slum ureas in cities. "Home ownership with all lhat it means lo good citizenship would be encouraged.
