WASHINGTON (,P) -=Con-
gressional advocates of two new
housing programs designed for
low-income families are watch-
ing closely the Nixon adminis-
tration's initial moves on finan-
The issue will be joined when
the House Appropriations Com-
mittee conducts hearings, prob-
ably in March, on a supplemen-

tal bill for the present financial
Former President Lyndon B.
Johnson, who submitted the bills
three days before he left office,
asked $100 million additional for
the two programs as a part of
George Romney, secretary of
housing and urban development,
will be asked to present his ad-
ministration's views on the
The two programs in question
are the main new features in
the far-reaching 1968 Housing
Act which cleared Congress last
One contains the broadest
subsidies ever voted to try to
make it possible for low-income
families to buy their own homes.
Under it, the government wouli
pay all of the interest cost above
1 per cent in order to put
monthly mortgage payments in
reach of such families.
The other program applies the
same interest-subsidy principle
to rental apartments for such
The 1968 law authorizedh 75
million in subsidies for each of
the programs in the current fis-
cal year which ends June 30.
But the congressional appro-
priations committees allowed
only $25 million each. It is this
cut of $50 million each which
Johnson asked be restored in
Backers of the program say
that the home-ownership plan
already has proved so popular
that the $25 million is ex-
Sen. John Sparkman (D-Alas,
chairman of the Senate housing
subcommittee who steered the
1968 Act through his committee,
told a reporter he is confident
Romney will support the $100
However. Sparkman was criti-
cal of statements made by the
new secretary that it would n)t
be possible to attain the goals of
the act for low- and middle-in-
"I have said all along these
goals are difficult," the Alaba-
."But they shouldn't go shoat-
ing from the housetops that
they are unrealistic and can't
be reached. First they ought to
give them a real good try."
For the first time in history,
the 1968 law set up specific
year-by-year targets for prodic-
tion of government-assisted
housing units for the poor.
These added up to a 6 million
total for the next decade. Rob-
ert C. Weaver, Romney's pre-
decessor as housing secretary,
conceded that to achieve the 6-
million goal would require pro-
duction at a rate 10 times that
of the past 10 years,

* LAX BUILDING CODE ENFORCEMENT and an understaffed
building and safety department allows landlords to rent sub-
standard and overcrowded housing to students. 675 uncertified
multiple dwelling units are currently rented, all of which have
one of more outstanding code violations.
* INADEQUATE HOUSING for a growing population inflates
rents, hitting the poor and the students hardest. Over 225
emergency housing cases are currently being processed by the
city's Human Relations Commission, while construction of pub-
lic housing units has been stalled for over three years.
LACK OF AN OPERATING BUS SYSTEM (and an unwilling-
ness to invest in one) puts a great burden on the poor, many
of whom have no other means of transportation. Only an in-
efficiently-operated, emergency bus system is now in operation.
o FREQUENT ALLEGATIONS OF POLICE BRUTALITY against
blacks and an almost all-white police force contribute to tense
police-community relations. Recent cases of alleged indiscrim-
inate search and seizure have resulted in a probe by the United
States District Attorney's office.
* PERMISSIVE ZONING allows student landlords to build high
density apartments with inadequate floor space and insuffi-
cient parking. The new 26-story apartment building and Uni-
versity Towers show to which interests city government is now
o TRAFFIC TICKET VOLUME (which matches that of Detroit)
is climbing. The City Council is currently considering a motion
to eliminate on-street parking between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., with-
out supplying alternative parking spaces for the many students
who would be directly affected by the change.
