For this reason ! passage of a GI Bill for Korean : vets is not expected lo have much effect on the mark?!. These difficulties, however, are not considered enough to halt the j boom and the builders arc doing : right well despite them. A sidelight on the morlpage picture' is the way World War II vets are making flood on their loan obligations.

The demand outlook is luightJ Although Ihc world has never w i t - j nessed such a hurst of building as has occurred in the U. S. since th°' end of World War II, housing ex-i perls say the market is definitely j not saturated and won't be for several years to come. 51 P»r C«nt Not Mortgaged One of every sovrn persons in the nation is now living in a newi home or apartment. Enough new] dwelling units have gone up since 1 V-J Day to more than eompl»tely ! rehouse our eight largcts cities,! or more than 24.000.000 people, j In the process, the proportion' nf renters to home owners has I been reversed since HUH, and "if ] per cent of all homes are now t i free and clear of mortgages. I . Yet the high demand continues' | due to record high family incomes] · a n d a rapidly increasing pnpula-' 'lion. In the next decade alone,! .population is expected lo jump! : by 20.000,00(1, requiring at. least' | 1,000,000 new hn:nes each year M just to avert a shortage. Looking even further into Ihe 1 ' future, by the late ISBO's a large number of today's record crop of children will be maturing anil forming new households of their iwn, which will give the market the biggest spurt in history. In addition, families now demanding smaller homes arc expected to be hack in the market igain five or ten years from now, · this time for larger homes, as ; they have more children. And ilun. to the growth of savings, older people now maintain separate households longer. The boom is no! confined to home b-JiWing. Total construrlion is now at an all-lime peak. It: is running at the fabulous rate of $37 billion a year, with government building leading the wav at i pace 25 per cent above last vear, evnn though high construe lions costs show few sicns of lev-.
