COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1944 EDSON IN WASHINGTON U.S. As Real Estate Owner lly I'ETKIl EDSOX Courier News Washington Correspondent Ycnr Uncle Ram would seem- to be in the reol estate business, right up to Hie nrm boles of Ills star-spangled vest. His troubles begin vvlieii he tries to get out. Tabulations made by the assistant attorney general in charge of of the Lands division, Norman M. Uttell, show that In the five and a half years from July. 1938, to January, 1944, 23 agencies of the Federal Government hove acquired $513,277,892.06 worth of property— nearly 12,500,000 acres awl 21,000 other parcels not measured as acreage. -In addition, on Jan. 1, deals were pending or not. yet closed for another 18,600,000 acres, which might bring totnl valuation to over a billion dollars. It has been the job of the Lauds division to clear all those titles and close nil those deals. Who does the selling, and how, is yet tc be determined.^ All this recently acquired land Li In addition to the public domain of 800,000,000 acres, some 13,000,000 ncrcs of which has been :raiiKfcned by Agriculture,' Interior or other departments lo the War and Navy departments, and whlrh vill probably be transferred back, to where it was when the war Is over. LIST. OK LAN!) AND LEASES The net war-use property Is not just In'nd, but It Is also Improve- ment'and leases. Through the Defense Plant Corporation, the government has till; to 1788 factories, flying schools, pipe lines, barge lines and so forth, valued at over $7,000,000,000. Maritime Commission owns $7.000,000 worth of shipyard real estate on.. which are Improvements at over $425,000,000. The Federal Works Agency, aftci .spending ItV $125,000.000 Lanhain Act funds,'will have title to 2M schools, 109 hospitals, 512 rccrou- tbn ce;ilcr.s, 100 witter works, 80 tewaije systems, 07 fire end police projects and three power plants. National Housing Agency owns 523,000 dwellings, 123,000 temporary homes, 62.000 dormitories, 30,000 trailers. Under .loose ore approximately 1400 warehouses, 2300 other .storage facilities, 2800 offices and bulM- ings, 800 hospitals, schools ami hotels, 0.762,000 acres of land for airports, camps, railgos and have you. In'nil, 21,868 leases at annual cost of $60.457,000. MERIT OF SINGLE RKAi ESTATE OFFICE The thinking of the Baruch report on post-war adjustment, policies was in general that the agency acquiring property should hnvc the disposal of It. That mnkcs sense where there Is no camijell- lion between sellers. But If oil the 23 -government', agenclc* owilitj; property' should start dumping «! more or less : the some time, what would thru do to. property values? From-that pointer view, the Idcn tor having one "central office lo dispose of real estate,' os recommended by Assistant Attorney Gen- oral Llttcli and others in testimony before Congrcaunnn Cartur ^fa>lasco•s House sub-cominlltce on pnbllo bulWhiKs and grounds would seem lo have merit. A lot. of the properties will, of course, ticvci 1 be no-.u. Some of the defense ])la:its will lie put In Si'cas-B as slniiU-hys for Hie next wnr.
