BROOKLYN LONG ISLAND SECOND SECTION NEW YORK, N. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1945 PAGES SEVEN TO TWELVE SftW Witlfnk NEWS NEWS LSI II II Ml III 1 1 IJ I CS li 1 This, That hasold umbolau SMALL TOWN BOY: Direcor of Reconversion, John Snyder, one of President Truman's home state buddies, has certainly proven a big bust so far. and the quicker the President removes or transfers him, the better off the Country 'will be. By abolishing totes. conrols on home building and other construe.

Uon, Snyder has paved the way I I VT bust" cycle that may wreck the gover nment's Itk I enure economic YV stabilization 1 asajnaanaBsaf. iMr0iam Ua tiasi told the building industry to do just what it pleases, and the result will be exp nsive homes at inflated values. Senator Tafft could have done no better, or is it worse? The government program was to bold the anti inflation line by maintaining essential controls during reconversion. Mr. Snyder gave this program "lip service" when he announced a "six point program" which is so much double talk.

The Snyder action is based on his belief that since the war is over. building materials will be produced quickly, that contractors will not bid up prices and the housing industry will police itself. Any building contractor will tell you that all the seasoned lumber was sent over the other side during the war to help the same. The stuff left, and to be produced, is green and suitable only for small units with a life span of fit teen years or thereabout. It will cost so high, unless controls are replaced) that to make a profit, the owner wi'l.

have to build large units only with multiple renting possibilities. In the smaller units, one would have to skimp here, skimp there, leave out this and leave out that, in order to make a profit and in four or five years, when the house settled, oh, brother. But regardless of what is said, a buyer can always be found for a new home. We have no argument with those in the money who can afford to buy this junk. However, the majority of home buyers are those whwo are hooked by the promise of a ten year mortgage at 5 per cent, with little clauses here and there.

Blinded by the vision of their own home at last, these mall fry will sign and take a chance at anything. And the lending agencies don't chase ony one away. Snyder's program calls for the building interest to police them, selves, but who will do the arresting? It calls for Federal agencies to do everything possible to discourage excessive and unsound lending, but gives them no teeth. It for WPB to prevent hoarding of scarce materials. There will be no hoarding as long as the sky Is the limit on prices.

It calls for Information to be supplied to the prospective home owner by the National ouiing Agency. Wouldn't protection the same as afforded the returning GI's when making an investment or borrowing a loan, be better? It really calls for the re movsl of Mr. Snyder, and when Mr. Truman finds time to let around to It, well lay you two to that's what will Add Indigestion sUliovodleS I MfTkHk WN MiwaA km mws Mtafal. wCVat ht M.

By RUTH DAVIS SHERMAN "No, we didn't knit the names of traitors to France into our work like Madame Defarge," the short, dark woman laughed easily. "We used the wool you sent us to knit warm garments to "keep our chil dren and ourselves alive until we could see France rise again. But the traitors' names are knitted into our minds forever."
