The governor, a Republican, and Mrs. Youngdahl arrived by plane from Copcnhasen today after a two- woek. tour of the Scandinavian coun- tries. They left at E.S.T. for Minneapolis on a Northwest Air- lines plane. He declared the Dcwcy announce- ment "is a pood thing.

Sawyer told a Senate banking subcommittee the present federal rent control law should be extend- ed for a year beyond February 20, the date IL Is now schcdul-cd to expire. Because building costs lire NO high, hi! tcHtiried, the amount of new construction designed for rent. ho.1 fallen to about ten per cent of the total, as compared with a prewar 20 pel" cent. "Thus at a time of unprecedent- ed demand, with veterans returning from war, the supply of new rental housing has been drying up." Sawyer said. He also urged that Congress, if it extends the Rent Control law, ap- ply some kind of controls over ap- proximately rental units for which voluntary lenses boosting the rent 15 per cent were signed under the present Inw. Such leases, to extend through this year, were provided In tho law which became effective last July 1. The units covered, however, are no longer subject to federal controls if the tenant who signed the lease moves out. It may be three weeks before Congress makes Its decision on ex- tension of the controls.
