Is it necessary? Is it a great field for postwar investment nnd employment? Or will tlie building industry be a long lime recovering from its wartime restrictions? Disregarding entirely (he question of whether there shall be bigger and better public housing programs, the first question is whether there will be any super-duper housing development at nil, or just slow, steady growth. The customary quick answer to these questions has up to now been that a tremendous building boom Is inevitable. John B. Blandford Jr., National Housing • Agency administrator, foresees the need at from 1,000,000 to 1,500.00 licw homes a year. The old "one-third of a nation ill-housed" line would call for 13,00,000 new or remodeled dwelling milts to supplement the 32,000,0000 now . standing.. AVonder T niair Henry J. Kaiser sees housing as something "to keep millions cm- ployed for years." Irving W. Clarfc of West ing house foresees tlie building of a million new houses a year for 10 years, plus moderation of ail the 32,000,000 dwellings now standing. AH wonderful if . lately, however, a note of realistic caution has crept into this familiar Jargon of optimism.

IIAT8, MICK AN!) liOAOH CONTROL tiUAKANTlMI) WORK H. C. BLANKENSHIP 108 K. Kciiluckj Pbon* UM vey on the present housing shortage Tlie loenl hoards reported n shortage of single family dwellings in 92 per cent of the communities, a shortage of apartments in 88 per cent. In only 2 per cent an ( t 1 per cent, respectively, were surpluses reported. The total shortage is cs- limnted at eight houses nn<l three apartments—n total of 11 uiiils— per 1000 population nnd the great puzzle is where all these people now wanting shelter lived before. In war production centers this housing shortage is so' acute that there is now an inflation in values of urban homes and n resulting inflation in mortgage lending, according to John II. Falicy, commissioner of tlie Federal Home Loan Bank Administration. This is a boom similar to that which developed in the I920's and which caused all Ihe mortgage forcclos-; urcs, etc., in the 1030's. This is a' definite danger sign. There are a number of other factors which daub the postwar rain-, bow wilh'black. After the war, millions ,oi people,-aren't going to be : abie or want to iivc where they are living nnd working now. No builder or real estate operator' would know where to build tomorrow's dream houses even if he could gel the labor and materials.

No real estate opc- income urban population of the country and come up with the rather alarming prediction that the number of. new dwellings which may actually be built will average only 300,000 units anmialy for the first 10 postwar years. WHERE DID. THEY ALL LIVE BEFORE? For proper perspective this dire There is an estimated full year's accumulated repair work to be done on housing already standing before any appreciable new con- structloon is undertaken after the war. That is a national, threc-bil- lion-dollar job in itself. Finally, the "house of tomorrow" has not yet been built, even on an experimental basis.

I I _^ - . •• ,' . , • •• • • * •) Rice Means More to Southern Brides H ERE, in the South, rice is more than a symbolic adjunct jto the marriage ceremony. A product of the vast Southern rice fields—it exerts far-reaching economic effects upon thousands of people in this section of the nation. Since 1904, when Arkansas first started growing rice, it has become an increasingly important and profitable crop. In 1942 this State produced 12,6-12,000 bushels of rice which resulted in a cash income of $16,821,000—a rise of more than $5,500,000 over 1941! Government experimental stations have already done much toward improving the quality and quantity of American rice. Every day science is finding new and exciting uses for rice and its many by-producta. Aa a result, the postwar future of the rice industry in Arkansas gives every promise of being a bright one—one which should bring better, more profitable jobs to the people of tlib State and contribute generously to the new prosperity of the entire South A Greater South Is In the Making Typical of many progressive Southern industries, Lion Oil Refining Company, through constant research and experimentation, has succeeded in developing and is now producing from Southern crude oil, several components of 100 octane gasoline ... vastly improved lubricanfa ...
