Wolcott (R-Mich), chairman of the House Banking Com- mittt*, said in an interview he might go along with a public housing: program with "restrictions." He declined to spell these out. Wolcott long has been a foe of low- rent public housing. Other persons close to the conference committee said public housing opponents may offer to back a one-year continuation of the program—provided new units are restricted to families dispossessed by slum clearance. 'Senate advocates of public housing said this kind of a restriction would cut the heart out of the program. Another point of difference is a would be no program at all. The Senate Banking Committee investigating alleged housing scandals took testimony yesterday j July from Fred C. Trump, a New York ' City builder, who said apartments would not have been built under an expired postwar loan insurance program if the law had set rigid limits on loans approved by the Federal Housing Administration. 389 288 264-s 271 394 291 y 4 268% 272 against the possibility of future "windfall" profits by builders operating with government-insured loan*.
