Housing, Drainage
To Be Undertaken
By Physical Plant
The approval of a contract with
the federal government appropriat
ing $136,000 for the completion of
the Amazon housing project was
announced yesterday by Irwin I.
Wright, physical plant superinten
dent. The contract was approved
through the office of the Federal
Housing authority in San Fran
Wright stated that the work will
be done by the University physical
department. He said that work has
already been done on the drainage
system for the Amazon area and
that actual building will begin as
soon as possible.
He expressed a hope that at
least 28 of the single story units
could be completed by January 1.
Not the End
When completed the project will
accommodate 100 more veterans
and their families stated E. W.
Martin, director of veterans fam

however, that the completion of the
project would not mark the end of
the family housing problem as
there are approximateely 600 fam
ilies on the waiting list.
The entire Amazon project con

total 148 are already completed and

units to prevent further damage
from the rain.
Weather Damages

fore the roofs were built. Floors
suffered the greatest damage, and
many will have to be relaid.
