(UP)—The ouse trailer with Us nomndli! ollowlng has been listed by Ihc "ler'^in Municipal Association us me of (he six "acute problems" oniionUng .American cities I n Clifford W. Ham, executive sccre- ary of the association, said the roller problem, even though In Us nfancy, will demand direct, Immc- llate mid mutual attention of cldes ir It will get out of control. 'Ilie five other problems listed e re: 1. Financing relief and adjust«« to the removal of PWA us n actor in public works programs. 2. Low-cost housing. 3. Support of airports. 4. Retirement systems for immi- ilpal employes. 5. Training for public employes Ordinances Need Expauslun .The association re)»rt said that oca) ordinances pertaining lo louse trailers should be expander receive the attention of municipal and slate officials In the lelils of health, relief, police, lire tavallon and recreation. In 1937 more than 50 cities decided the problem, though not ycl of major proportions, could not be solved simply by prohibiting trailer parking and occupancy of camps within city limits. Laws were passed to limit (he staying period and others to regulate sanitation. With building of more trailers than housing units last year, 1938 may sec the problem get out of control. Ham said. Problems relative to relief and employment ' were aggravated In some instances by exhaustion of PWA funds. The association said that constructive relief programs still depend on a resurvey of public revenues and nn allocation of Income ma'le among levels of government on the basis of needs and responsibilities. j Housing Funds Required ^Another problem concerns low- cost housing. Under the 1937 Wagner-Sleagall housing acl. cites in an states lhat have housing authority enabling laws are empowered to go ahead with slum clearance nnd low-rent housing projects Cities in (he other 18 states must await, legislation. The association said that those already legally prepared to proceed must find n wnj o finance projects with tlie aitl of Federal loans and grants, Increased air traffic calls for improvements on airport facilities now representing an Investment ol $300.000,000, the associated pointed out. Operating expenses have also risen. To keep pace with changing conditions in air travel, cities are confronted with financing such 1m- arovements In order to benefit will: .heir neighbors. Adoption of the Social Security Act called attention to the inade quacy of retirement systems for municipal employes, totaling aboir 700.000. Cities were urged by the association to enter pension programs now possible In seveial states Training for public employes the association said, is now available to cities. With inclusion 01 such training under vccationa education appropriations made in 1937 cities now have an opportunity to arrange for training of their em- ployes. Federal funds for the ptu'- pose are to be matched with state contributions but co-operation o cities is necessary to plan activities CONSTKUCTION'KQUIPMENT Hl-MODILJNC N't iv Note In ('u)istriir(luii 1 ulways been viro;;nl/.i'il, hns bri'ii On your remit SlIlHlny ilrlvc.s,' mily .scli'iilHIrally ili'iTlupi'd lor 'on'vo iirulmbly noticed a new noio liumes sln«- the Winlil Wur.
