In his statement on housing legislation Wolcott made It known that, senate backers of public housing are not going to push him around. The Michigan Republican called heir tactic., "childish and beneath me dignity and responsibility of Congress." | At the same time Wolcott put : squarely up to the senate the rt- sponsiblllty for getting the government's mortgage Insurance program started agnin. This authority expired, last Friday night. ' The story on pending hoii.-lnjr legislation Is this: Wolcott's committee sfnrled hearings Monday on the Tafl-Ellender- Wagner long-range housing bill passed by the Senate April 22. The bill looks toward construction of 15.000,000 housing units over the I next ten years through Insurance and other inducements to private • builders. Extends Mortgage Throufh Marrh . The measure also contains a , much-fought-over "public housing" provision /or construction of another 500.000 government-financed units In the next four years Sen Harry p. Cain. B.. Wash., was In the forefront of the senate fight against this section. Another section of the bill ex- lends the government's mortgage Insurance program to March 31 1949. The House has passed a separate bill to authorize a 52,000,000.000 Insurance program for another year. But instead of passing this bill, the Senate Wednesday approved o[ stopgap bill to extend the old Insurance program for 60 days. storage. Insurance and handling I charges, will be distributed among Ihe producers whose cotton was placed in the pnols. I Payment will be made in propor- I lion to the amount of the loans on the cotton placed in such pools. No payment will be made to producers at the time their cotton is placed In the pools.
