Rent Changes Are Explained Applications for Increases Handled , "We are. now fully equipped With instructions and supplies to help- landlords who want .to take advantage of the Washington-announced revision of rent regulations simplifying certain. applications for rent increases," E. Stewart Ulrich, area rent director, stated Tuesday. "The regulation changes were not effectiv« until July 10 and we were not in a position to handle applications until today said the rent official. "From now on, however, we •hall make every effort to explain comprehensively the requirements in every case called to our attention and to act upon the petitions ' for adjustment with speed, once they are'filed for official consideration." Has Complete Answer "LTlrich said he agrees with National Housing Expediter Tighe E. 1 Woods who announced that rent offices now will have a complete answer to the past objection that a landlord, operating at a loss, could riot always obtain relief. "Especially welcome the Mason City area will be the change that permits the so-called small landlord to use a short form in seeking hardship adjustment," he added. "It will take care of a complaint that owners of only one of 2 properties who do not keep books or records and are not able, therefore, to produce the figures required to get a hardship increase." Ulrich pointed out that now small landlords will need only tax receipts, insurance., premium notices and fuel and utility bills to submit with the simplified form. Information Summarized He summarized information on the changes as follows: A landlord who believes he is operating at a loss may file a petition for increased rent on a form known as D-99. He will show total income from the property, total operating expenses for the current year and, deducting one from the other, he will show his operating loss. Operating expenses Include depreciation but exclude interest charges. A landlord of 4 units or fewer may file a short form petition to , show he has had a decrease in net income from rentals because of increased costs for taxes, fuel, utilities and insurance. He may base his petition on taxes alone, or may add any one or all the other items. However, no part of the building subject to the petitions may be in use for commercial purposes. If a landlord has not saved the bills required,-he may get the information from the tax ofice, insurance company and fuel and utility concerns. The rent official emphasized that petitions for adjustment of rents are possible only when a property is not under rent-increase lease. Dairy Report for June Given City Laboratory Lists Fat, Bacteria Checks The report for the month of June on the bacteria count and butterfat content of dairy products sold in Mason City was released Wednesday by Dr. J. W. Lannon, city health director.

The automobile club here recently staged such an event, known as a "balloon-foxhunt," at Olten, Switzerland. At the gasworks there the bag was filled with 2,200 cubic meters of gas, ,,/the basket took on an aeronaut and 4 passengers, and 37 motorists r engaged in a guessing and racing contest to be the first to reach the balloon when it landed. It came down 4 hours later, approximately 120 kilometers from the starting point. The chase could have continued except that an easterly wind was driving the bag toward the French frontier. At the frontier the "foxhunlers" would have had to halt, and a Swiss balloon floating over French soil mighl have provoked diplomatic exchanges.
