Mr Roose velts realizing one of the most cherished dreams of his adminis tration It was set up under the national industrial recovery act in exactly 84 words for the purpose of aiding the redistribution of the balance of population in industrial centers Its capital stock was fixed by congress at The interest displayed by Mrs Roosevelt in the projects thus far sponsored by FSHC particularly one at Reedsville W Va has at tracted some attention to the work The forthcoming conference here within the next two months how ever promises to focus the tion of the whole country on FSHC Long Term Plan The presidents plan for decen tralization of industry is essentially a longterm idea It is estimated a period from 10 to 20 years will be required to persuade industrialists to move their factories from crowd ed cities to the countryside From the time it was created FSHC deliberately has proceeded on a small experimental basis Many difficulties have been encoun tered ranging
