Only recently the Board cf ni- reclors of The American Institute of Architects adopted a resolmlon which appears lo have been a precursor of the Presidential policy. The text of the resolution rea:is as follows: "All remaining wartime emergency regulations on construction, inducting rent controls on rev: building but not on existing buildings), priorities, subsidies, allocations, i and market guarantee's, should be removed immediately. Only the establishment of a tieo market will enable the construction industry, through free competition,' to 'restore a sinooth iixl balanced flow of building materials and equipment, stabilize prices, and thus eliminate the wasteful delays and abnormal costs of present operations. "Tlie removal of the remaining controls is a necessary prerequisue to the establishment of a definite level in the construction indusr.ty. The establishment of such a. det- inite and relatively stnble prcc level is, in turn, a prerequisite to tlie resumption of normal appraisal and finaneimr methods which 1111151 take place before we cnu l;ave more than a (riekle of rental housing. Since rental housing constitutes the primary need of the veterans. Ihis program will sorvc his needs as well as I hose of ;hc community at larrre. "The removal of warlimc and emergency controls and the elimination • of temporary wartime agencies will clear the way for n constructive peacetime propra:n. The construction industry and tl;e government should, however, cooperate in the development of acceptable procedures, designed to: "1. Provide accurate and timely Information on construction :;<•tivities: "2. Encourage the (raining ot skilled construction workers; '(3.
