Congress still faces the problem of finding a way to build more housing for the nation for less money. Is there an answer? Housing experts see hope in a wage stabilization agreement between labor and employers in America's most crowded city that promises to add tens of thousands of new dwelling units to the building scene below. NEA's "authority on business and labor tells story in this dispatch. By S. BURTON HEATH NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK--(NEA)--Tens of thousands of new homes, in this , badly over-crowded community. ! are "prophesied as a result of a i wage stabilization agreement 'which the Building Trades Employers' Association and 31 of the 40 " AFL construction unions al- i ready have signed. '; This agreement .pledges the unions not to ask for any raise, i direct or indirect, before June 30. ; 1950. unless the Bureau of Labor Statistics' cost of living index irises more than 15 per cent be- ilween Jan. 1. 1948. and July 1. ' 1949. If that happens--and no- Ibody expects it--the unions are 'to absorb the first 15 per cent, ·and a formula is provided for dividing any excess between employers and employes. ' Estimates vary as to how much mew constructio'n this agreement · will unleash when and if the re- imaining nine unions, which represent perhaps a quarter of New (York's 250.000 construction work- 'ers. sign up. .Unions Are Sincere ! Cynics, remembering the nl- fated Master Agreement of last vear. \vhich promised much but produced little, question whether the unions will be able to hold their members to the agreement. But many who have watched the negotiations closely are convinced that the unions are sincere in their support of stabilization, and will make good.

N O matter what your job today, it depends on "good business." And someone has said that in the American business system, nothing can be accomplished until "something is sold." You know the truth of this. Falling sales mean pay cuts, layoffs, fear. Increased sales mean better pay, promotions, more security in every job for every man. Advertising is tlic low-cost, efficient uay to sell goods. Advertising is the spark plug OL business. So advertising, by selling goods, makes your job, your home, your income more secure! HANDS OFF.
