PAGE SIX Broader Benefits For Poor Urged FHA Official Goes Before Lawmakers Studying Low Incomes WASHINGTON, Dec. 15—(/TV The Federal housing administrator yesterday said that private builders must shoulder the major share of the Job of providing housing tor low and moderate income families. Public housing "Is only part of the solution to the problem," Administrator Raymond M. Folcy told a Senate-House Kconoinlc Subcommittee studying low income 1 problems. At the same time, Foley called the 1949 housing act '"a major milestone in housing history." It provided for 810,000 housing units, amori!; other things. But he added that the program still must be rounded out, and said he would have specific proposals to this end for the January sestion of Congress. Foley told the committee it would be "unwarranted" to conclude that federal aid would be required to house all of the 10,000,000 families in the $2,000 income bracket. It would be equally unwarranted, he declared, to assume that the 2,300,000 families In the same Income group who already own their own homes "are adequately housed and need no further assistance." "Ifc is an all too common falacy to believe that home ownership Is In, and of itself, an Infallible measure of economic security." he said. Broader SSI5 plan Tusheil New evidence meanwhile piled up that the Truman administration will press Congress to provide for a greatly expanded federal old age and survivor Insurance system during the forthcoming session. The new pressure hint came from Secretary of Labor Tobin during an appearance before the subcommittee. He said that the present social lecurity system should be expanded to provide benefits and eligibility provisions "which are genunincly tdapted to the needs of retired workers and their dependents " This Is In line with the urgins of President Truman and others this year. Tobln said he would like to see an approach made to a $100 a month pension for workers covered by social security along with a gradual Increase in the minimum wage to SI an hour. Tobln said that private Industrial pension systems, such as labor unions have been driving for vigorously this year, should supplement but not replace, a government Insurance system. (ARK.)

(AP Wirephoio) Governor Asks Strict Missouri Sex Crime Law JEFFERSON CITY. Dec. 15. (AP) — Gov. Forrest Smith expressed alarm yesterday at "the w.-ivc of sex crimes all over the country." "It is my hope and iccljni; that type of law violators should be dealt with severely by our courls and law enforcement officials," he said In his weekly letter to the rural pre-w. "Bvery protection passible must be provided for our boy.s and girls and our womenfolk as well." The governor said he had heard of sex crimes recently in Columbia and Hannibal. He said he doubted whether two new laws parsed by the 1040 legislature bad been on the books long enough to provide a fair test but "I doubt If there's teeth enough In them." One of the new laws provides penalties for pcr.son.s who molest children. The other sets up machinery for committing sex criminals to the Fulton State Hospital for treatment. Another new plan l.s being tried out by the state training school ward, the governor said.
