Meeting of New York's mayor and housing administrator ends in love feast. Washington, D.C., Dec. 11. What promised to be a red-hot meeting between U.S. Housing Administrator Nathan Straus (left) and New York Mayor Fiorella La Guardia took the form of a love feast before the confab ended. Straus said he had always considered Mayor La Guardia the best New York had had in his memory. While he noted New York's Housing Authority was starting two weeks late because it had not sent representatives to exploratory conferences, Administrator Straus promised La Guardia that they would receive the "same prompt consideration" of low cost housing project as any other community. 12/1/37
