S. Goal By JAMES MARLOW Washington, Feb. 12 —W)— The president's housing expediter, Wilson W. Wyatt, has proposed that 2,700.000 homes be built by 1947. That's the plan. Now it remains ,o be seen whether it can be car- •ied out. Right from the start Wyatt runs into some opposi- CRESENT DRUG STORE • • e Can Supply You With Remedies and supplies for FARM ANIMALS Arkansas Sportettes Associated Press Sports Writer Usually serious Bill Flynt. thf University of Arkansas basketball team's Baptist minister. ion. Two of the groups most interested and involved in the plan are the builders and real estate dealers. The first reaction of the National Association of Home Builders of the United States and of the National Association of Real Estate Boards is this: "It is a very excellent plan, generally, and it has many good joints. But —." Wyatt wants most of the now homes to sell for less than $6,000 or to rent for not more than $50. Veterans and their families would gel firsl chance al Ihem. Frank Corlright, executive vice president of the home builders, says: "Builders can't build permanent lomes of 5 or 6 rooms in high cost ireas like Washington, Chicago or Detroit and sell them for under $6,000. "Building costs have gone up an iverage of 50 per cent, most of it duo to increased labor costs." So right there Wyatt's plan comes up against its first big prob- em. Many builders so far have been eluctant to put their time and noney into low-cost housing when here is a demand for higher- priced homes by people with plenty of money to spend. Wyatt* \yants Congress to nlace arice ceilings not only on new lomes but on existing homes and even on building lots. Herbert Nelson, executive vice president of the real estate orga- lization, says: "Our organization will fight any ceilings on existing homes or Hiilding lots. There are 3?),000,000 lomes in this country now and 30,000,000 lots. Its nonsense to try to put ceilings on all that" Real estate men, of course, make a profit on sales of and rescalcs of existing property. Wyatt's two-year plan calls for 1, 300,000 permanent-type houses: '50,000 permanent pre - fabricated louses; 50,000 new trailers; and 200,000 units of war-housing shifted around and re-used temporarily. The 850,000 pro-fabricated houses would mean a tremendous boom and expansion in that industry. Naturally, builders or regular type houses coud not be expected to enjoy an invasion into their filed oy the pro-fabricated industry. On this point Corthright says: "Expanding the pre-fab industry now would pour. into il a lot o"f man-posvcr and materials that regular home builders could use for setting up the regular type, permanent, house. "Besides, a lol ot building codes around Ihe counlry would have 'lo ae revised to permil pre-fab structures." There has been much contenlion from makers of building materials that OPA must allow them to charge higher prices for their product. Higher prices all arotihd would mean just that much more boost in the already inflated cost of homes. The government wants to keep prices down. Wyatl proposes lo do it by paying government subsidies. This way: Jones says OPA will let him sell his bricks for only — say — 10 cents a brick but he really needs 15 cents lo break even. The government would give him the difference between 10 and 15 cents, so he'd be out no money, but he'd continued selling bricks at 10 cents each. Corthrighl on Ihis poinl says builders would ralher have higher ceilings. One reason: When the government finally stopped paying such subsidies — say two years from now — the builders prices would be down to what they are now and out of line with prices that had risen all around in those two years. "Besides," Corthright says, "people are fed up wilh Ihe idea of tjovernmenl subsides being paid oul in all kinds of business in Ihis counlry." Wyalt thinks- Ihc cost of such sub sidies would be about $600,000,000. Congress would have ta approve spending Ihe money, o UAW Turns Down GM's 181/2 Cents Detroit, Fcb .12 — (UP)—General Motors Corporation today offered to settle the 84-day-old strike with 175,000 CIO United Auto Workers with an 18 1-2 cents an hour wage increase, but UAW leaders immediately walked out of their negotiating session, turning down the compromise. Rcuther reported that Anderson had made the proposal of 18 1-2 cents an hour" for production workers "with a long string of conditions" attached to it. Both sides announced that they would have statements later . on the new deadlock in the negotiations. Company spokesmen estimated thai the new offer to the UAW, if year. The 18 1-2 cents would be an increase of Hi.5 per cent, compared with 17.4 per cent, or 19 1-2 cents, demanded by the union. Questions and Answers Q—What is the "trail of the coins" ceremony?

The newspaper El Mundo s editorially that "America has - tives to distrust us." It said that the Argentine people had watched its government's foreign policy suspiciously and would not abandon their traditional sentiments despite all the efforts of Nazi agents. A complete translation of the 32,000-word text has now been published in Buenos Aires newspapers. The nation was greatly confused and stirred by rumors. A report of troop movements circulated in Buenos Aires this morning, but the activity proved to be a movement of new draftees.

Reading the letter he had sent to President Trumsn, Ickes said that in effect, the President had "expressed a lack of confidence in me," and that he had no choice but to resign. (NEA Telephoto) ®Bv LYLE C. WILSON Washington, Feb. 14 — (UP) — The chances of Edwin W. Pauley being confirmed as undersecretary of navy apparcnlly lay shattered, today in the wake of the Old Curmudgeon's deparlure from Ihc Truman cabinet. The Old Curmudgeon is Secretary of Interior Harold L. Ickes. Ho will cease lo be sccrelary of in- .erior tomorrow after having torn, into President Truman and his advisers with a double-barrelled at- ,ack the like of which has never been seen around here. The immediate result was grow- ng doubt that the Senate would go along with the president and okay lis controversial choice of Pauley for the navy post. It was Ickes' differences with Mr. Truman over Pauley's qualifications that led the Old Curmudgeon to resign in a huff. . After an exchange of letters ad- iusling Ihe matter of resignation, and a press conference in .which [ekes foresaw no future for Mr Truman other than trouble, there were further developments. These consisted of the distribulion by the reliring cabinet officer of an exchange of letters between himself and the president. They can be curtailed and paraphrased, but they are to good to cut.

Communists Expel Earl New York, Feb. 14 — W 1 )— Earl Browder, former national chairman of the Communist party, was absent from the party fojd today — ousted by the national committee for a long list of reasons including "deserting to the side of the class enemy — American monopoly capita." The committee announced the aclion last night, saying Browder was expelled by a unanimous vote of the committee's 54 members. His expulsion was recommended by the national board of the party on Feb. G, it was said, because he had "deserted Communist duties and responsibilities." The committee said it had "categorically" rejected an -appeal by Browder and thai Ihe appeal "in itself confirms the correctness of charges preferred against him by the board." William Z. Foster succeeded Browder as party head last September. Browder, party leader 15 years recently announced his entry into business though formation with an associate of "Distributors Inc.," described as a service for locating "scarce merchandise." Browder could not be reached fo comment.
