By the Associated Press WASHINGTON, Dec. 25 A fresh cry for housing help went out to the reconstruction finance corporation today along with the disclosure of a second 12,000-unit cut in the number of temporary dwellings being erected for veterans. Rising material and labor costs were blamed for the reduction. Representative Estes Kefauver (D.

"Our reception at Atsuga airdrome was far from the general human concepts of democracy, said Kurganov in an article in Pravda. e said Gen. Douglas MacArthur had originally landed at the same airport with remarks about a "great world democracy" on his lips. Kurganov asserted a "thick wall" of American military police sur rounded his plane after it had been escorted into Japan by 'zooming American fighters. He said the Soviet Journalists had refused to Dermit profile photos to be taken because that seemed "too instating." Hejsdded that when one of his companions took out his own camera and began to take pictures of the whole scene an American offi cer stopped hia. has been cut to 176,000. FPHA ordered th first 12,000 reduction last August, and officials said Tuesday a similar slash is being put ihto effect because of additional ost increases since the decontrol of building ma terials. , With the new, smaller goal, field offices are under instructions to concentrate all remaining money on projects at least 85 corhplete. This will mean, officials said, that some projects j will hot, be started and that some will be suspended to be finished only if funds noia our or aaauionai money is forthcoming.
