The article focuses on corruption in GI housing. Homebuying veterans utilizing the GI bill have been cheated of countless millions of dollars by bribing home-builders and loan companies, corrupted Veterans Administration employees and water-weak laws. The House committee, as the nation's newspapers have jubilantly headlined, castigated the corruption in the Veterans Administration and demanded the firing of a number of employees. The same newspapers maintained a discreet silence over the exposure of the bribers and the corruptors.
