OUTSiM ORDERS ON HOW TO KILL LOW-RENT HOUSING! Opposition to morallv honest. Jew-rent housing is not spontaneous. Xor Is it Baytown voters wi!l go to the polls tomorrow with an opportunity to show their faith in the Golden Rule. The issue is low-rent housing . . . whether additional units shouW be built in this city, to house families now living in the squalor of slums. This election climaxes three months of maneuvers, manipulations, half-truths, misrepresentations and rather serious accusations from a smell group of vociferous real estate operators who would deny families in economic straits good housing . because no commissions are paid when low-rent houses are leased. Limited finances have kept supporters of low-rent housing in Bcytown from being able to counter some of the vicious propaganda fostered by the self-styled "Baytown Homeowners Association." Now, on the eve of the election, good friends—fed up with misrepresentation, have supplied th : " voice. The basic issue is simple and clear-cut: Baytown has grown from a consolidation of three smell communities, into a modern, progressive city of 30,000 population. Its growing pains have been both good and bad. Along with the new homes and subdivisions, have come slums, bad housing, misery, filth and delegation. "Slums" are not just empty shells of wood and stone. Slums are teeming with people . . .American families, who live there for one reason - they CANNOT AFFORD to rent anything better! Slums are excellent investment properties. They pay handsome returns on small investments. They require little maintenance and upkeep. If a tenant doesn't like the way his family is iivmg, he can move cut, they say. There's always someone else who'll move in ... again because he can't fford any* thing better. Baytown has its slums. Look around you, whe next you go for a drive. Look at "Bcytown Woods" as on example of housing. THINK TO YOURSELF: "If my income was low, WOULD I HAVE TO LIVE THERE?" And how about some of the sections in Old Baytown? Would YOU have to live there? Civic leaders, municipal officials, labor, management are all unanimous in deploring such a situation. Labor, for instance, has long recognized that a properly-housed worker is a better worker. Baytown tomorrow has an opportunity to combat its slums! It can give enthusiastic and resounding approval to a forward step in GIVING FAMILIES AN OP- POR7UNITY TO HELP THEMSELVES! Will more low-rent housing clear slums? tn the Cooperation Agreement between the City and the Housing Authority is a clciise which calls for "equivalent elimination." This means that over a period of time, for every unit of new low-rent housing constructed, a unit of slum housing will be eliminated OR BROUGHT UP TO STANDARD. Yes ... tew-rent housing will help rectify a deporaWe situation. As for segregation, no family will be forced to live in low rent housing against its will. New construction will be in areas determined by the Housing Commissioners, in locations NOW OCCUPIED by members of a particular race. There should be no difference of opinion when it comes to DECENT HOUSING. The fac?s ore plain—Baytown needs housing for low-income families! THE DECISION IS UP TO YOUR! ONLY YOU CAN HELP YOUR LESS FORTUNATE NEIGHBORS. Opposition to low-rent housing is carefully planned and specifically documented, by a fw individuals sitting under the? guis<> of the National Association of Real Estate Boards and the ls";>.tional Home Builders Association!
