MONDAY, DECEMBER IT, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Authorization Seen Next Year for More Low-Rent Housing Two Demo Senators Believe Congress Will Vote Increases WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Democratic senators said today they believe the next Congress will authorize more new low-rent public housing than they expect President Eisenhower to recommend. •« • The similar statements were made in separate interviews by Sen, Sparkman (D-Ala), a member of the Senate Banking subcommittee which handles housing legislation, and Sen. Humphrey (D- Mlnn). Each said the present law is too restrictive and that he will propose changes in it. Albert M. Cole, federal housing administrator, has indicated Eisenhower may ask Congress to authorize the construction of 70,000 low-rent public housing units in the Commodity And Stock Markets— Ntw York Cotton Ut:tt a»Bftt.*»x) Mar 3482 3486 3480 3486 May 3510 3513 3508 3513 July 3523 3528 3523 3528 Oct 3527 3533 3527 3532 New Orleans Cotton Mar 3486 3488 3484 3 May 3514 3517 3512 3516 July 3527 3530 3527 3 Oot 3532 3538 3530 3 Chicago Soybeans Jan ... 280>/ 2 282'/ 4 280% Mch ... 279 281 279 May ... 278'A 280'/ 4 278 July ... 273% 276'A 273'/ 2 Chicago Corn Mch ... 156% 156% 156V, May ... 167% 158% 157y a 275% 15654 158% Chicago Wheat Mch ... 231 >/2 232 230% 231% May ... 227% 228 227 227% New York Stocks A T,and T 173 1-2 Amer Tobacco 65 Anaconda Copper 48 5-8 Beth Steel Chrysler 69 5-8 Coca-Cola Ill 1-4 Gen Electric 44 1-2 Oen Motors 94 5-8 Montgomery Ward Tl 1-2 N Y Central ..' 32 Int Harvester 35 3-8 Republic Steel 75 Radio 38 Socony Vacuum ..

Eisenhower this year asked a four-year program of 140,000 units, but Congress authorized 35,000 units for each of two years. Such housing projects are designed for persons in low income brackets. The federal government pays to local housing: authorities the difference between the amount of rents collected from the tenants and the cost of maintaining the properties. Restrictions Noted Sparkman said the 35,000-unit limit is so hedged in by restrictions that it is doubtful whether more than 10,000 units a year could be built. "These restrictions must be removed," he said, and added he expects they will be when Congress acts on proposed extension of the act. Sparkman said he would prefer "a flexible law" which would leave it up to the President and the Budget Bureau to recommend each year how many units should De built, the final decision to rest with Congress. Humphrey said that 'f the law does limit the number of units to be built, "it should be not less than 75,000 a year." He said he will introduce proposed amendments soon after Congress convenes Jan. 5, seeking to eliminate what he termed "far too much red tape." He said the present law requires that "for every public housing unit built, you must tear down an old housing unit, and relocate the family living in the old unit." He says that involves such burdensome planning operations that many municipalities in need of new projects and slum clearance have found it impossible to qualify within the time allowed."

The second vote was scheduled on three amendments, with the Premier demanding rejection of two which would delay ratification of the prcts but calling for approval of the third.

Willingness Today we arc willing to accept the idea that, as far as we are concerned, alcoholism is an illness, a progressive illness that can never be "cured" hut which, like some other illnesses, CAN he arrested. We agree that there is nothing shameful ahoul having an illness, provided we face the problem honestly and try to do something about it. We are perfectly willing to admit that we are allergic to alcohol and that it is simply common sense to stay away from the source of our allergy. We understand now that once a person has crossed the invisible borderline from heavy drinking to compulsive alcoholic drinking, he will always remain an alcoholic. So far as we know, there can never be any turning back to "normal" social drinking. "Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic," is a simple fact we have to live with. We have also learned that there are few alternatives for the alcoholic. If he continues to drink, his problem will become progressively worse; he seems assuredly on the path to Skid Row, to hospitals, to • jails or other institutions, or to an early grave. The only alternative is to stop drinking completely, to abstain from even the smallest quantity of alcohol in any form. If he is willing to follow this course, and to take advantage of the help available to him, a whole new life can open up for the alcoholic. There were times in our drinking careers when we were convinced that all we had to do to control our drinking was to quit after the second drink, or the fifth or some other number. Only gradually did we come to appreciate that it was not the fifth or the tenth or the twentieth drink that got us drunk; it was the first! The first drink was the one that did the damage. The first drink was the one that started us on our merry-go-rounds. The first drink was the one that set up a chain reaction of alcoholic thinking that led to our uncontrolled drinking.
