The key to the struggle k the Home Rute Committee which can pigeonhole the bill or clear H lor debate. Chairman L»o E. Allen, R., HI., h«i yet to ichedule a. hearing on the controversial measure. Hou&e OOP leaders maintained % policy of strict silence on the bill. But iU public housing and slum clearance features were known to meet with their disapproval. Th« roeuure wa« approved by the HOUM Banking Committee last week on a H to 13 vote that upset lead- u-shlp cilculationi. They had hoped for a bill by Committee Chairman Jttft r. Wotcott, R., Mich., which Btrrwd no public housing or slum etearanoft. Til. Ta/t-E!lender-Wa*t>w bill ham already been approved by the Senate. It would authorize various federal aids to the construction of 16,0*0,000 new homes In the next ten yeari. Calk for MV,*M Home* The controversial features would permit government construction of 600,000 low-cost housing uniU and federal assistance In financing alum otoarance project*. Opponents hare termed these provision! "socialism." Technically, the measure now be- Jor> the Hnle« Committee U a different bill bearing a House number and aponwred by Wolcott. It has be«n amended, however, to a point •where it is almost Identical wilii th« Taft-ntender-Wanner bill for alt practical purposes, There were conflicting predictions on th* fate of the bill should it get to Uie floor for debate. Backer* ol public housing and slum clearance aaid they had enough Totes to •withstand a tut. Opponent* claimed they could knock, out Tiafon*. Both admitted, however, that the vote would be close with a possibility ot jewral lait-minut< switches. Convenient Small Horn* Sheathing That Insulates Adds Value to Home Housing experts point out that persons planning to build would be wise to bear In mind that the "Jiv- ability" and true value of a home depend to a great extent on hidden structural features. Many of these, acordlng to the authorities, are more Important to durability mid comfort than parts exposed to view. One of the foremost Items In this category l.i the sheathing, the first layer of exterior wall covering In frnme construction. Good sheathing Is essential to a well built dwelling. It's purpose IB threefold—providing a base for the exterior facing, lending bracing strength to the building; and ottering weather protection. A comparatively recent advancement in this phase of home building Is the widespread use of Insulating broad sheathing. It not only meets the necessary requirements but in addition provides efficient Insulation Thus It helps keep a home cooler in summer and makes it easier to heat in winter. This modern type sheathing is available In widths of 2 and 4 feet. The 2-foot sheets come in 88-foot lengths, 25i32-lnch thick. Four-foot boards are made in lengths from 8 to 12 feet and In thicknesses of ',1- inch and 25'32-lnch. Tests have shown that Insulating hoard sheathing, because of the large area covered by each unit, can be applied much more quickly than older types ol'sheathing. UIHHT KIHD OF STREETS?

(UP) — Communist strength in Italy has been itudily wining since the dis- a»trou« defeat in the April elections, According to Italian ambawador Albert Tarchiani.

"The peoplt DOW have proof tlw Communist* arc not nearly as strong a* they had been claiming," . Tarchiani said. The ambassador returned here recently from a two-week visit to hU homeland.

The gap between this output and the demand means another fuel famine next winter, according to Government authorities. An oil shortage extending Into 1953 is highly probable, says Max W. Hall, director of the Oil and Gas Division of the Department of the Interior. . Bearing In mind last winter's cold, imcotnlortnbte homes and tlie economic disruption of dosed factories, experts in Government, and In (lie fuel and building industries are now advising the public, to be lore- warned and to prepare during the next few months to minimize the coming fuel shortages In homes and business buildings. j Proper wluterlzation, which! means storm windows and doors, weathcrstripping. full-thick Insulation, and closing all cracks. Is the basic step being urged. In addition, heating plants should be brought to top efficiency during Hie summer months and larger fuel storage facilities installed. Insulation Is the biggest fuel-snv- wool glass, _ Is at at high level. The material devices its hlKh insulating properties from millions of dead nir cells in each cubic inch o( the fluffy, wool-like fibers- While preparing for the expected luel shortage, home-owners who insulate this summer will make their homes up to 15 degrees cooler, nl savings of IC'-i per cent with storm-sash and weatherstrip. Such winterizing is one of the main points stressed by the Bureau of Mines in its pica for fuel conservation.
