Foley Scores
Poor Quality
'Makeshift Houses' Draw
Fire Of Michigan FHA
Director In Talk Here
Danger Of Unrest
Seen In Situation
Despite an intensive building pro-
gram on the part of the Federal
Housing Administration, the United
States has made little progress in its
attempt to provide homes for the
average workers, Raymond M. Foley,
State director of the FHA, declared
here yesterday.
Mr. Foley spoke before more than
300 persons in the architectural col-
lege auditorium on "Challenge to In-
He singled out the private building
industry and criticized it for "brag-
ging" about an increased production.
"All types of makeshift houses are
going up," he argued. "Economic
pressure and a housing shortage have
become so pressing that workers are
forced to live in homes unfitted for
American citizens. They are just
In these shanty-like houses, Mr.
Foley saw a possibility for future
unrest in the 6ountry, maintaining
l that collective action would demand
more adequate housing if business
enterprises failed to solve the prob-
"Much danger in the present situa-
tion results from the fact that, in
the desire to get a really low price,
we get too little house, We mustn't
think of the house as a structure,"
he urged, "but as an entity in the
To the assembled architectural stu-
dents, Mr. Foley leveled a challenge
that they design the ideal home.
'When you do this you will have ac-
complished as great an achievement
as the early patriots,"
Part of the blame for the present
condition, Mr. Foley laid upon unin-
formed workers who bought their'
homes only after they had paid for
their automobiles and other luxuries.
"Our goal is to provide the coun-
try with homes costing from $2,500
to $4,000 with the lot. Last year we
were working in the $5,500 class
and six months ago in the $5,000 price
Mr. Foley predicted that the pre-
fabricated homes, cooperatives and
apartment rentals would solve the
present problem in the nation's in-
dustrial centers.
"The FHA is more than a cold
blooded group of bureaucrats. We
are trying to educate for better hous-
ing, and have been insuring homes;
that- meet our minimum require-
ments to the extent of one million
dollars each week."
Market Shows
Loss As- Steel
Volume Falls'
NEW YORK, Nov. 1.-(A)-An-
other decline in steel mill production
cast a shadow over today's stock mar-
With steels leading the set-back,
many issues retreated i to 3 points,
with a few showing wider declines.
A little support in the final hour
helped reduce losses moderately
in some cases.
The one encouraging factor of the

session, from the standpoint of bull-
ish analysts, was the lightness of
volume on the sell-off. Transfers to-
talled 1,029,210 shares compared with
2,803,740 last Friday when the trend
was up. It was the smallest 5-hour
turnover since Oct. 4. The Associated
Press average of 60 stocks was off 1
points at 49.1.
Although the general run of news
lacked stimulating qualities, the prin-
cipal depressing item was the esti-
mate of the American Iron & Steel
Institute placing current mill opera-
tions at 48.6 per cent of capacity,
a decline of 312 points from last week,
and at a new low since Dec. 30, 1935.

the conquest of Mexico by Cortez.
In the opening scene, Montezuma,
the Aztec Emperor, sits in splendor'
upon his throne waiting for tidings~
which are to tell him of the treach-
ery of the Spaniards, who have in-
vited his chieftains to a banquet
only to murder them. Faced with
death himself, Montezuma refusesi
to be converted to Christianity, andl
the moment of his decision is used
to symbolize the impact of European j

refused to attend the conference.
American delegates made it clear

than other powers in the effort to
