TUESDAY, MAY 18, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE OTft On Ike's Housing Program WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate Banking Committee sets out today to put President Eisenhower's housing program into legislative shape, but there are indications it would concentrate on sealing "scandal" loopholes in the present law. Sen. Capehart (R-Ind), the committee chairman, said in an interview the big problem facing the group was to write a bill that would eliminate "all the loopholes." Capehart spoke in advance of the closed-door meeting. And speaking for the committee's seven Democrats, Sen. Maybank (D-SC) said in a statement: "Congress can best serve the public interest and the housing needs of the nation by simply perfecting the existing /housing statutes. Any new programs must be given the most careful scrutiny." The committee has spent much of its time recently investigating alleged multimillion-dollar abuses under the home repair and now- defeunct postwar apartment house construction phases of the government's loan insurance programs administered by the Federal Housing Administration. On the eve of the committee's work session, Acting FHA Commissioner Norman P. Mason sent Capehart a cluster of recommendations for changes in the housing statutes and FHA regulations. The recommendations aimed at stopping the ''fleecing" of home owners by unethical home repair salesmen and contractors. Mason's proposals also are designed to prevent the cooperative housing program from deteriorating into a situation like that in which apartment house builders reaped "windfall" profits by obtaining government-backed con- struction loans bigg-er than nec- cessary to meet costs. Capehart expressed general satisfaction with Mason's recommendations. Two Recommendations Though the committee seemed bent on shoring up existing laws, Capehart said the committee might go along with these two adminis- t r a t i o n recommendations for broadened activity in the housing field: 1. A new program calling for 100 per cent government insurance of 40-year mortgages for construction of new homes costing up to $7,000 for families whose dwellings are torn down in slum clearance projects. 2. Liberalization of the home repair and modernization program with a recommended boost to $3,000 in the maximum, loan and a repayment period extended to five years. At present the biggest allowable loan is $2,500 repayable in three years. Mason's recommendations included these: 1. The FHA should not make good on defaulted home repair loans until the lenders have started collection proceedings and have obtained judgments against bor- "AND THE TEARS FLOWED . . ."

Australia Iff} —The Petrov spy documents list two and possibly three members of Australia's house of Representatives as having unwittingly given information to Soviet agents, the Royal Commission on Espionage was told today. The commission's counsel, W. J. Windeyer, made the revelation during the second day of preliminary hearings into the story of Russian spying in Australia told by Vladimir Petrov, former Soviet Embassy third secretary here who quit the Reds and was given political asylum. The counsel said one of the documents turned over by Petrov related to American and Japanese interests in Australia. He said it was 37 pages long but did not disclose its contents. He said one of the two members of Parliament definitely mentioned tae e 4ssu vyyx mr715aed 18 in the papers as unwitting informants was from the Liberal-Country party government coalition and the other was from the opposition Labor faction. He did not reveal their names or indicate the importance of the information the Soviets gleaned from what he termed unguarded remarks. He also said government em- ployes had passed information and copies of documents to agents of the Soviet MVD.

I ventured to the 20th-Fox lot ana was told that Double-M could not be disturbed at her labors. She was in 'dance rehearsals for "There's No Business Like Show Business." However, she sneaked out word that if I would wait in a small office off the rehearsal hall,?she would try to see me during a break. The view was good. I watched dance director Robert Alton and Marilyn's dance-in (corresponds to a stand-in) teaching her the number. They were all wrigglinp to an Irving Berlin number, "After You Get What You Want. You Don't Want It." After a half-hour of this strenuous business, she took a break and came over. She was frankly worn out and looked it. She wore blue jeans and a plunging sweater top with a bare midriff. She had not a trace of makeup and her hair was tousled. Still, siie looked good. As usual when she is concen- trating- on her work, her replies to questions were generally in one line. She said her hubby. Joe Dl- Maggio, Was in town and had been for some time. Furthermore, he will not be commuting to the East as he has been —• "thank goodness." She said he was negotiating a TV deal that would keep him on this coast, either here or in San Francisco.
