TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 1 mm 1934 If, S, LONG RANGE WORKS PROGRAM WILL SOON BEGIN CWA and PWA in Their Form at Present Not to Be Continued. By BtJBT A. BLACK Globe-Gazette Washington Bureau WASHINGTON-- Uncle Sam. has just about finished cutting his jigsaw puzzle and is now busy smoothing: edges ana reshaping the pieces to flt them together Into a coherent, co-operative whole, that will be a pattern, not a puzzle. The termination of the civil works and public works program a* now constituted is a vital part of this work. The CWA will end on May 1. Something has to come after that date Whether or not that something, probably under a different name -and a new set-up,' since the present, hastily, thrown together administrative arrangement has demonstrated its faults, will remain an emergency measure not yet ready to merge with other long range plans, it will change with a view toward a final merger. Series of projects. indications are that the future program will be made up of series of projects, such as the construction of rural consolidated schools now tinder way, and the-natlon-wide public works of art project, which will be continued in some form beyond May 1. These could be entirely federal .projects, or projects for which a national plan is made and carried out with state and .community aid. Scattered, haphazard projects will be abandoned or taken over by communities. The public works state advisory boards end their service on Feb. 28, not because the administration want* to appoint new advisory boards but because they have passed on enough state and municipal projects to last for several years of continued public works, according to Administrator Ickes. Long Range Program. The long range public works program planned by the administration may or may not be ready for inauguration this July 1, but when it does get under way it. will be a combination of all the. general land policy beliefs and projects of the administration, a federal policy of federal projects. It might be supplemented by federal aid to state and municipal projects of the type now, under way on 70-30 basis, and even by numerous minor projects b. as those successfully carried -"URh by the CWA or the states * * aye to take over the future erks in the Hoover »J TM^,^v meant public building? and posfarf flees, and it meant a program carried on principally by two government departments, the architect's office of the treasury department and the postoff ice department. land and Works. The Roosevelt Jand and public works definition has brought into play almost every branch of government in such a close and necessary co-operation that It has taken puzzled correspondents months to get themselves straight and to keep from repeating themselves. Public wdrks money would finance CWA projects which the commerce department would plan, and out would come three stories, one from PWA, one from CWA and one from commerce. Correspondents have found, as probably never before, just how necessary it is to know about departments not on their beats, and they have found as never before a president who knows what's going on in his integrated plan and can make the pattern clear to them. Rural and Urban. '' Civil Works Administrator Harry L. Hopkins has indicated that eventually civil works or what grows out of civil works must become an urban program and another program, fitted to rural areas, be found. Even now as demobilization of the CWA goes on, it strikes in the rural areas first. · . In the long range program, which would probably have a ?500,000,000 yearly appropriation, there would be agricultural adjustment administration crop reduction programs to boost form prices, there would be the forest service to aid in reforesting areas taken out of cultivation and the erosion division of the interior department to advise on eroded areas, there would be subsistence homestead projects testing and demonstrating new types of crops that could be grown on good land not cultivated without jeopardizing farm prices. Rural School Building. There would probably be rural school building projects and sanitation and modernization programs. The CWA rural farm home survey has already cataloged valuable, information concerning the need for such programs. In the cities, there would be the federal program with the most highly skilled work done by the type of workers now used on PWA projects and the less skilled and technical jobs by workers now CWA men. There would be the sub-marginal land program to move stranded industrial populations on to good land, and in the country, this plan might move farmers from their poor land to good. The CWA and the PWA, to a lesser extent since it had and took time to 'perfect its machinery, have not only found mistakes and necessary changes in their working methods, and. work hut have been, preparing for many of the projects to come, the- CWA through many . surveys, the PWA particularly through its planning board.
