GREEN WASHINGTON (IP)— Better news for auto manufacturers and worse news Jor home tuiWers was today. due Mobilization Director Charles E. Wilson and Defense Production Administrator Manly Flelschmann were called before the Congressional mobilization "watchdog" committee headed by Sen. Maybank D-SC. Maybank said his group wanted to make sure the mobilization agencies are earmarking for civilian production as much steel and other scarce materials as possible. Members or the joint committee •Iso sought details on the "period of severest pinch" for civilians, which Wilson says has begun and will last Into 1953. Some Information Out Part of the Information already was out. Auto production will be trimmed to 900,000 passenger cars and 240,050 trucks in the quarter starting April i. This was welcome tidings .o the industry, however; until this week plans called for only 800,000 cars and 200,000 truck.*. Home building is due for a cut. Henry H. Fowler, the new head of the National Production Authority, told reporters yesterday that the shortage of plumbing, hardware and other building supplies will not permit a continuance of the present rate—about 850.000 homes a year. "Starts" to Be Reduced Officials now are working plans to reduce the number of residential "starts", Fowler said. Otherwise, builders may begin construction and then find it impossible to finish. A cut of perhaps 100,000 is indicated for 1952. More specific details, and methods by which a reduction can be brought about, wil be discussed by Fowler with representatives of the construction Industry in a meeting here today. Stcnl Summary Planned Meantime, Flelschrnann undertook to give May-bank's group, the Joint. Committee on the Defense Production Act, a complete summary of Ihe planned distribution of scarce steel, aluminum and copper among the military,' defense- supporting and civilian segments of the economy. Automobiles had been earmarked tentatively for only enough copp'er —the bottleneck metal in automobile production—for 800.000 cars. • FEEL ACHY?
