(2) Structures which it is practicable to move should, when possible, be used in carrying out public war housing programs in other localities;

(3) Structures which it is practicable to move but which are not used as above should be sold, if possible, for use in meeting private priority quotas under the war housing program in other localities, except that residential structures of a temporary character may not be sold for such use;

(4) Any structures not used in any of the ways described above should, in the public interest, be transferred to another Federal agency or sold or leased to a public or quasi-public agency when needed for non-residential or institutional uses connected with the war or its orderly demobilization, except that residential structures of a temporary character may not be permanently transferred or sold for such use on their present sites. If such non-residential need is by the Federal Government on the present site, it may take precedence over (2) and (3) above when this will be in the public interest and best serve the war effort or its orderly demobilization;

(5) Any structures not used in any of the ways described above may be reserved by the FPHA for future non-residential or institutional use on the present site by any Federal agency which represents that the structures may be needed by it in connection with the war or its orderly demobilization;

(6) Any structures not used, or reserved for use, in any of the ways described above, may, for any appropriate non-residential or institutional use on the present project site, be transferred to another Federal agency or sold or leased to private individuals or corporations or to public or quasi-public agencies, whichever is in the best financial interest of the Government, except that residential structures of a temporary character may not be transferred permanently to another Federal agency or sold for such use (except for transfers to the Army or Navy pursuant to section 4 of the Lanham Act).

(7) Any structures or materials not used in any of the ways described above should be treated as follows:

(i) Any residential structures of a temporary character which it is not practicable to move should be demolished 25 promptly as possible and these and other materials re-used in whatever

manner will best promote the war effort and be in the public interest. Demolition for re-use of materials in the public war housing program may take precedence over non-residential uses under (5) and (6) when this will be in the public interest and best serve the war effort;

(ii) Any structures which it is practicable to move should be regarded as a reserve for possible future use elsewhere in the public war housing program, and may be kept standing on their present sites when this is the most feasible method of handling them pending their removal for use elsewhere; - (8) Any materials which cannot be advantageously re-used in the public war housing program shall be transferred to other Federal agencies or sold to others in a manner which will be to the best financial interest of the Government and in the best public interest, with preference being given to transfers or sales for use of the materials in connection with the war or its orderly demobilization.

(9) Any land which is no longer needed and is owned should be transferred to another Federal agency or sold in accordance with the policy stated in (10) below, and any leases or temporary uses of land should be terminated;

(10) All sales of properties referred to above should be undertaken as promptly as may be advantageous under the circumstances from the viewpoint of the public interest and the best financial interest of the Government. In the sale of such property, consideration should be given to its full market value.
