PAGE TWO BLYTMEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIEK NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 1950 Tht Nation Todayt ABC on Rent Control— What Will Happen Under New Rent Bill? Hy JAMES MAKl.OW WASHINGTON, June 22. (/!>)— Congress lias passed a new rent control bill. President, Truman Is expected to sign II Into law. This Is an AI3C on what the new bill will do ss law. It will keep the present law unchanged, except (or a couple ol minor points, until Dec. 31, 1950. After Hint date all government rent controls will cease everywhere In (he united States except—and this the only exception—where the people or officials of a city or town vote to keep them longer. Even though a town or city votes to retain the controls beyond Dec. 31, they can keep them only six months beyond that date for, automatically, government controls will then end June 30, 1951. To put it another way: the new law continues controls until June 30, 1551, but only for a town or city—a stale can't vote to keep them—which votes to reialn them until June 30, 1951. Otherwise they end Dec. 31. 1950. Present 1'rovislons The present live innin provisions of the law—for knocktnij off controls—remain In effect until Dec. 31, 1950. So between now and Dec. 31 controls can be knocked off this way: 1. The government's housing expediter can remove the controls anywhere he thinks it's all right to do so. 3. Local rent control advisory boards, able to show their locality no longer needs the controls, can recommend to the housing expediter that he remove them from thai one locality. I 3. State legislatures can vole to I wipe out government rent controls In any individual state. I State Rent Confrnl | 4. State legislatures can pass a law setting up their own rent controls, and this automatically wipe: out government controls, 5. The local governing body—like a, town or city council—can vote to end government controls. And this will be done If the governor o! the state approves. j 6. (This is new) an unincorpora-! ted county—such as one adjoining ! ft large city—CBU wipe out the gov- j ernment controls if the officials of that county vote to do so. (The law says this: even though government rent controls should end everywhere on nee. 31, 1950,! world war" II veterans still keep ' their "veterans preference," as provided In present law, until June 30 1051. < Veterans First Crack (Which means: no matter what happens to rent control between now and June 30, 1951; veterans j must be given 30 days' first crack j or preference, at any new building whether It's a house or apartment.) i Here are other ports of the <prer ) lent law which the. new law will i keep unchanged until Dec. 31, 1950: (As explained, after that date— and only until June 30, 1951—they will be kept unchanged only in R town or r.ity which votes to keep rent confils beyond Dec. 31.) Tighe Woods, called the houstnp expediter, Is rent control boss for the country. His office is here in i Washington. Under him—In the places which atlll have government rent control —ar« so-called area offices around the country with staffs lo handle problems in their areas. They'll advise Woods whether they think rents should be raised or wiped out in their areas. If Woods doesn't do what the boards recommend, they can appeal lo a special emergency court of appeals made up of federal judges. If you're a landlord and think you should be allowed lo raise your rent, go to the area rent control office in your territory. If you don't get stalsfaction there, you can consult your local advisory board. If you're a tenant with a complaint about your landlord, tell it lo your area rent control offirc. The housing expediter can control evictions. He can get a court injunction to stop an eviction lie thinks is wrong. The tenant or the housing expediter can sue a landlord for three times the amount of rent he thinks the landlord lias overcharged. But —there are no criminal penalties for doing anything wrong under the law. Chicago Aiiarlmcrits And one thing more: apartment hotels in chicngo arc under controls—the ony city In the country where that Is required—at the rental they were getting March i. law. (Under the present law, pa.wrd last year, apartment hotels in Now York and Chicago were kept under the controls. Since then New York state ended government controls and put on its own. So that leaves Chicago apartment hotels the only ones still under federal control.) r Ij&f'm'" *'' ;l!t'<i?>: 3J i(r.~. it j..'; -' : ~T' t,iSiiL&*; T»^^r J **»i.;f>>',-»£?*, . »/£- V ( .s .,* ^;/.; .,?i,X ONE STORM DID IT ALL—A huge j/ully thai would Imvc lakcn years of normal erosion to crcnlc was ripped through a level field near Natrium, W.
