No mailer what type of healing 8 plant is used, it must be adequate to heat each room to 70 decrees when outdoor temperature is zero, and should lie so granted In writing by the contractor, arcoidiup to Ihe architect.

The baseboard radiator or duct is suggested because today's window-walls extend lo within a few Inches of the floor, precluding use of standard sixed radiators or grilles. Unless shielded from summer sun. windows make the Interior of the house unbearably hot. Drawing shadr-s destroys the advantages of the picture window or window-wall so architects shade windows with extremely broad caves. In the case ol remodeled older houses where it is impractical to extend the caves, shading is accomplished with a , pergola or lattice. For greater summer comfort, the shadec" windows should be augmented wtth mineral wool insulation which will pi-event penetration of exce.vive heat through superheated exterior walls and roof. 11 Seek Permits For $20750 in Planned Building Applications for 11 residential construction and one business building permits luwe been filed during the past two weeks in Ihe office of City Engineer Joe Carney.

Cunningham pointed nut today that fair net operating income is only one of several adjustment provisions open to IP milords for obtaining rent increases when justified. 'Four principal adjustment provisions continue in effect," Mr. Cunningham said. 'They arc major capital improvements, comparability, .substantial nu-i ease in occupancy, and increase In services, | furniture or furnishings. 'This means that landlords can Mill fid more rent for improving their rental units or for belter service to tennnt.s. Tt also menus that no landlord is required to maintain renls below the level generally prevail ing for comparable controlled accommodations/' the Rent Director added. In order to qualify for a rent, increase for making major capital improvements to his rental unit, a landlord do more than ordinary rensur or replacement, the rent dilvctor explained. Examples of the kind ot project that will earn higher rental are the addition of an extra room or bath, modernizing an old kitchen with new. up-to-date I fixtures, or completely rehabilitate- ! ing the rental unit. When granted, the adjustment will reflect the dif- terence in rrntal value of the property as well as increased costs of construction, Suostantial increases in services, ftirniUue or furnishings will alas brine; the landlord a higher rental, depending ujson the value of the added feature, Include such items as Ihe replacement of an ice- l)ox will) a mechanical refrigerator or furnishing heat to a tenant who had previously heated the unit at his o\vn expense, In such cases, the landlord -should get the approval of the tenant before making the change.
