Readers' Views With the Rent Control Act. expiring mill a ncu 1 one coming into etfect. i have been reviewing its operation in Blytheville for the past year. One thing that impresses me most is the fine way in which you have helped Icnnnls and landlords to understand their rights and obligations under the law passed n yc:ir ago. At that time the Congress ivrale several principles into Rent Control, and the new law went Into effect within 48 hours of finnl approval. This presented a great problem of education, not only to those of m in the Area Rent Office, but also to the landlords and tenants affected by these new provisions. Fortunately, your pnper offered its columns to discussion of the new Kent Control Act. and your readers were able to find out immediately how they were affected. And you continued to report all news offered respecting Rent Control throughout the ycnr. 'The public response to these news stories showed that people in Blytheville read the Courier closely. For example, you had an item In January ndvishrg prospective buyers of rental property to check its Rent Control status before closing the deal. As n result, we had several calls and Icllers traceable directly lo that Courier article. This great public service on your ! part has helped to create good 1 compliance with Rent Control and j establish Blytheville in the OHE I records as a community where ! landlords and tenants cujoy a -satisfactory relationship. Very .sincerely, Chester A. Cunningham. Area Rent Director-Attorney U'lTI.K ROOK. Ark..
