Keenly aware of the need for more and better housing for all people of our nation, Presitlent Eisenhower has asked that the government join with communities, the building and lending industries and private citizens in a nationwide effort toward raising the level of living for all American people. Operation Home Improvement, in establishing 1956 as "Home Improvement Year," give* private enterprise's answer to President Eisenhower's request. An estimated 250 million dollars worth of advertising will bear the seal and slogan of this program as private industry shifts into high gear to recondition dwelling areas of half the American people in which houses ten, twenty, thirty years and older predominate. Now is the time for all American home owners to ask themselves "Is my house in order?" and then "Should I seize this opportunity to join hands with the government in reconditioning my property to meet the soaring national standard of livability?" Here presented for the evaluation of our readers in determining the latter question, arc the addresses of officials of private industry and government designating 1956 as "Home Improvement Year." Also included is a recent Facts Forum radio program in which Congressman Bruce Alger (R., Texas) and Senator John Sparkman (I)., Ala.), in discussing "Public Housing," touch upon many factors common to both public housing and federal aid to home improvement. Finally shown are the views of Paul L. Poirot, staff member of the Foundation for Economic Education, excerpted from his booklet "Public Housing." including his statement that "What the government takes from an individual as taxes is no longer available to that individual for use as he might please toward the care and improvement of his own home and his own family." Will this challenging program, in the final analysis, benefit the American homeowner individually, and the nation's economy as a whole?
