(UPI) it University of Michigan fljofessor today defended the JHxon administration's suspen s|pn of federal housing sub- sMies, contending the program liiost often failed to upgrade 1^ income neighborhoods. ^Dr. Karl G. Pearson, a inember of the U-M graduate ^hool of business administra- tibn and director of real estate oducation, also cited statistics vHiich showed the use of Housing subsidies has dimin- ^ed in recent years. |."Th€ use of federal subsidies l|ad declined even before the freeze due to abundant private Ijlian funds and liberal mortgage tirms malcing it possible for rftore families to buy homes MBthout benefit of subsidies," Pearson said.

Union officials, who had told 22,500 Goodyear worlcers to prepare for a striice midnight Tuesday, credited the "target company approach for the quiclf contract settlement. "We were expecting a strike," said Tom Fitt, a URW spolcesman. "This is the first tiffie in over a decade we haven't had to strilce." "This also is the first time we had a target company," he said. "Before, we never announced before the deadline who we would picli to strUte. This strategy brought about the fast agreement." Fitt said the URW is "happy with the tentative settlement." only information they have on the disApp«irance of any ot the planel. Sponeybarger and Wilson told recent news conference they aren't certain whit happened when they went down last Dec. 22. They said they were flying at only a few hundred f^et altitude at supersonic speed^tt feat made possible by the uni(iue radar m the Fill which reads the terrain ahead and fli6S the plane over any obstructions. They were over the target in Hunoi when their cockpit emergency indicators suddenly "lit up like a Christmas tree" showing that several unrelated $15 Million Supersonic jet systemi in tht pliM hid failed.

"Despite the moratorium on commitments to federally-subsidized housing, subsidized units already in the pipeline will number 250,000 for 1973, almost equal to the number in 1972," Pearson added. Pearson disputed complaints the suspension signifies ^ complete disregard of the poor, or that it will make it impossible for low income people to find housing. "The majority of low income families rely on the private market for housing, rather than on federal subsidies," Pearson said. "Their shelter is upgraded by occupancy of housing vacated by upwardly- mobile families. "Federal housing subsidies for the most part have not been successful in upgraduig deteriorating neighborhoods."
