(UP) — Frank R. XJreedon officially took om- as housing expediter today wilh a promise of swift action to carry out President Truman's new housing program which lias been denounced bv opponents as an invitation to ii "boom and bust." in re?.] estate. He lock the oath of office along with Raymond P. Poley. new national housing administrator. Creedon promptly conferred with top staff members. He indicated he soon would issue orders implementing the new program, .which Junks the tlO.GOO sales price ceiling on new homes and permits any non- vctcran to build a house. Norton E. Long quit as dcpulv housing expediter with charges that Mr. Truman's new program ' amounted to a "non-veteran, non- housing policy.' 1 Presidential Press 'secretary Charles O. Ross said the White House had no comment, either or Long's resignation or his charges. He said developments in the new housing program "will speak for themselves." Long said he was following former Housing chief Wilson W Wyatt in resigning because their efforts to work out an effective housing program had been stymied. "As far as I can sec that program is dead," he said. "The only thing it lacfcs Is a decent burial." Truman Seeks Action LOUR said he failed to see how the revisions in the housing program announced by Mr. Truman over the weekend left any semblance of a "program." The bniy result, he charged, is that veterans will be "deluded into thinking that something is being done for them." Wyatt resigned after Mr. Truman failed to support the measures he felt necessary to bolster the housing effort. Besides Long, several other officials have followed Wyatt's lead, including Joseph L. Rauh, general deputy housing expediter, and E. -A. Verpillot, a special deputy. Long was deputy i;i charge of the , program. Long predicted the plans which Wyatt out into effect, .would result in.500.OCO homes ancTsaTd:~ft'wmilcf be easy for those who succeed him to take credit. Mi. Truman issued the new revi- .iians Jiih \ demand for a "vigorous" housing jHtttiiB !r> 1947 with the emphasis on renul units. Spokesmen for the construct.Jn industry said the changes would.sp»d home building but veterans organizations greeted them with mixed reaction. The .President, among other things, junked the JIO.GOO sales price ceilings on homes, provided that any non-veteran may build a home if he can get the materials and wiped out the priority system for home-building. Mr. Truman also authorized a bulge in the $30 rent ceiling limitation by providing that the $80 figure could b? the "average" rental in any project. Ray sawyer, new president of AniveU, said the new program "looks all right for a veteran making S5.C03 a year but for the 90 per cent making less than half llmt amount the promise of immediate low-cost housing is gone."

He told the parly lenders to come into n coalition government on his terms or he would announce an nll-Soclitilst cabinet by (i II.111.
