BLYTHEVTLLfi (ARK.) COURIER THURSDAY, JTTNS I, 1W* ~* GOP Senators Meet To Line Up Votes For Housing Plan WASHINGTON (AP) — Leaders called a closed-door Strategy meeting of all Republican senators today in the hope of lining up enough votes to assure passage of new housing legislation asked by President Eisenhower. The housing legislation under fire from some Southern Democrate and «. number of Republicans comes up for debate later today. No votes are anticipated until tomorrow at the earliest. In advance of today's strategy session'. Sen. John M. -Butler (R- Md) said in an interview that although he had never been friendly to the idea of public housing, he might very well vote for the administration program. GOP Leader Knowland of California evidently hoped to tighten party lines itt view of the unexpected opposition to this part of the over-all housing legislation by Sen. Maybank (D-SC), in the past , a strong advocate of public housing. Maybank has already offered an amendment to the bill which would strip it of all public housing authority. He switched position after the Supreme Court recently refused to consider an appeal from the San Francisco Housing Authority asking approval of a segregation policy in a low-rent housing project. The B a nk i n g Committee ap- proved a far more extensive program than proposed by Eisenhower—35,000 units a year for the next four years—but Chairman Capehart (R-Ind) plans to ask the Senate to approve the President's program. In its version of the bill, the House included no authority for public housing. The senate committee bill includes these major provisions: 1. Lower down payments and longer repayment periods for homes bought with FHA-insured mortgages. 2. Continuation of present limits on home repair and modernization loans—$2.500 repayable in three years. The administration sought to liberalize this program. 3. Continuation of the present Federal National Mortgage Assn., the government's big secondary market for mortgages owned by private ownership of this secondary market facility. 4. A slum clearance and urban redevelopment program and special mortgage terms on low-cost housing erected as a result of slum clearance.
