WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1954 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Senate Group Probes Reports of $14 Million FHA Building Windfalls CHICAGO (AP) — The Senate Banking Committee (today studied a report that builders reaped .windfalls totaling nearly 14 million dollars on 40 housing projects financed by government-insured loans. The new list of projects was submitted bv Federal Housing Administrator Albert M. Cole yesterday as the committee began three days of Chicago hearings on FHA operations. Cole said the windfalls — or extra profits' — represented the difference between actual construction costs and loans based on excessive FHA estimates. Among the projects listed by Cole were three in which he said a trio of New Yorkers had parlayed a personal investment of $90 into a profit of $735,434. Another group of New Yorkers with an investment of $10,000 made a windfall of 3Vo million dollars, the administrator said. Projects Listed The FHA official told the committee headed by Sen. Capehart (R-Ind) the new names supplemented a similar list issued June 4. The three projects involved in the $90 investment, Cole said, were the Brookside Gardens, Inc., of Somerville, N.J.; the Hill Development Co., which constructed Oakland Gardens at Bayside, N.Y., and the Springfield Development Co.. also of Bayside.

The list disclosed that the three projects were to be built at a total cost of $8,384,666. Government insured mortgages on the projects totaled $9,120,100. Capehart asked Cole if the $90 investment on the three projects was correct. "That's what the investigation shows, replied Cole. Capehart commented: "Well, that's the limit. That's the lowest investment we have seen yet." Overestimation Cole's list showed that five other New Yorkers netted a windfall of SV-j million dollars on an investment of $10,000. A Columbus, Ohio, project Beverly Manor, also on the list,-- showed seven persons invested a total of $4,000 and realized a windfall of more than one million dollars. The project was government insured for $7,772,046. The FHA list also named Larry, Martin and.
