National Housing Administrator John B. Blandford said this step would be taken in addition to the new construction program now under way because demands for war hous- ing accomodatiors could not be supplied in time through new con- struction. Blandford said all the new hous- ing which could be built by June, 1943, either through public or pri- vate resources, could not possibly care for the new workers expected to be drawn into war pro- duction centers before that time.
