MONDAY, AUGUST 25, I'M? Low Cost Homes Still Discussed Californian Asks Construction to Aid $l,GOO-a-Year Group WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.1. (UP) — Rep. Charles ic Fletcher, R , Cal proposed today that the govern-' inenl put its Army-Navy wartime construction teams to work building houses for sale to low-income groups. Fletcher said lie was convinced private enterprise could not build and finance new houses ror people earning $1,000 a year and less. Fletcher cited figures used by Sen. Robert A. Tart, author of n housing ""I, that 30 per cent, of the nation's urban population earned $1.000 or less in 1938. "1 am in hopes that, the con- ercssional iiivcstigHtlcm of the housing shortage will prove my idea feasible," siiid Fletcher. He is president of the Home Savings & Loan Assn.. San Diego, and a member of the congressional committee to investigate the housing shortage. Under his proposal congress wuulil set up n revolving fund to finance the housing. Actunl construction would be done by the Army and Navy. Fletcher .suggested tile "paper work" might, be done by the Federal Works Agency. I.nnjf Time Faymrnls Favored Repayment periods, he believed should be in line with the from 40 to 50 years users of irrigation projects arc permitted to repay the federal reclamation investment Interest should be held at tile U. S Treasury rate of close to three per cent, he said. "The plan probably would mcai expanding Army-Navy constructioi facilities, perhaps setting up ; permanent, engineering corps fo this work," he said. His tentative proposed ceiling 01 income groups eligible to buy the _ government, housing was set a f SI,000 a year. Fletcher said an estimated C.080,00 families in tin: country lived in sub-standard dwcll- x iugs. "H would be a wonderful Investment from the public wclfn-i point, of view," Fletcher said. "I would help curb juvenile delin qiicncy. help public health ant reduce fire hazards. It. would 1* economically .sound and social'- right." Fletcher said he believed his pro imsnl was among the more radica plans advanced in (he field of pub lie housing. "I don't quarrel with the objec lives of people who want govern incut-owned housing." h c saic "But instead of that we srronli substitute government financia help to a man to acquire horn ownership. "The government should giv every possible aid. but not be ii the business of owning homes whlcl breeds collectivism and state so cialisiu." Head Courier .News Want Ads. BLYTJIKVILLK (AKK.)
