The latter won the National Crit-

Lillian Gish, now a 56-year-old
television star, reportedly gives

Willow Village rental authorities
have been officially ordered by the
Chicago regional office of the Pub-
lic Housing Administrator to con-
tinue filling vacancies until Au-
gust 15, Walter Funkhouser, man-
ager of the Village said yesterday.
Funkhouser believes the exten-
sion was issued under authority of
the stop-gap bill signed by Presi-
dent Truman last week which ex-
tended the Housing Act of 1950
for 45 days.
No official word has been receiv-
ed on the rumored exemption of
the Village under the "municipal-
ity" clause of the eviction and de-
molition order which originally
called for a closing of the Village
to begin July 1.
Members of the Village Resident
Council, which firstsought the
exemption and had received word
from Washington that it had been
granted, are continuing their ef-
forts to find out why the exemp-
tion order has not been issued.
