BLYTHETTLLE (ARK.) COtlHIER NEWS GOP Leaders Seek To Keep Alive Ike's Housing Plan WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican leaders hoped to through the House today a controversial proposal to President Eisenhower's public housing program alive authority for 35,000 new units after next fiscal year. With one bloc of House members beat 0& kitting public housing, and toother bloc aiming at a much bigger program, GOP strategists conceded the issue could be close. Time to vote on a 226-page revamping of h o u s i n g laws -approached after a week-long scrap. Major issues include interest rates o» Federal Housing Administration mod OI loans, easier terms for FHA home buyers, and the availability of money for mortgages. Republican sponsors told the HOUM yesterday the bill would assure a record of 1,400,000 new houses this year, help to tear down slums and improve older homes.

But many Democrats insisted it was inadequate and would lead to higher interest rates on veterans' home loans. Other opponents accused sponsors of the bill of trying to "out- deal the New Deal." Republican leaders said an appropriations bill passed Wednesday would leave authority to build 35,00 low-rent public housing units in the fiscal year starting July 1- dispute.

They said this would be a good start on President Eisenhower's request for 35,000 units each year for four years—and the latter two years could be considered later. The housing bill would permit Eisenhower to fix interest rates on loans insured by the Veterans Administration and the FHA up to a point 2% per cent above the average yield on long-term government bonds. At the present market, this would be a maximum of 5ft per cent interest. The current maximum on GI loans is 4% per cent. The rate of FHA loans is 5 per cent although the present law permits even higher rates. Democrats planned a strong pro- tets. lie House voted tentatively yes- terlfey to permit Eisenhower to drjf down payments on FHA'home s even lower than the Presit had proposed. The bill merely "gives the President power to provide the easier terms and does.not make them mandatory. Under the bill as brought to the House, the minimum, down payment on a home valued by FHA at $12,000 could be reduced from $2,400 to $1,400; at $15,000, from $3,000 to $2,150; and at $20,000, from The amendment would permit down payments to be lowered an additional 40 in each case.

Ferguson Says AF Plans Ahead Of Schedule WASHINGTON Iff) — Sen. Ferguson says the Air Force, far from having its buildup delayed, is now a year ahead of the development it had thought possible. Ferguson delivered to the Senate yesterday a reply to Democratic contentions that the Eisenhower administration, by cutting Air Force funds five billion dollars last year, delayed the airpower .buildup two years. The Michigan senator especially took issue with Sen. Symington (D-Mo) who was secretary of the Air Force in the Truman adminis- traion. Symington had said that, while the Soviet air force is more than half jet equipped, U. S. air units "will not be 50 per cent jet powered until 1957." Ferguson said Air Force combat wings now are 90 per cent jet equipped and will be 94 per cent jet equipped by July 1, 3955. Navy combat units are at the 50 per cent mark and making- further progress, he said. And Ferguson said the air program necessarily includes, beside je taircraft. "large numbers of transports, trainers and helicopters." The previous Democratic administration's announced 143 - wing goal, Ferguson said, was a "myth" and an "anticipatory gleam in someone's eye."
