EL PASO HERALD Wednesday, April 4. 1923, 3- FLAT DWELLER SOURLY VIEWS . BUILDING BOOM By RODNEY F. DUTCHER. Chicago, 111., April 4 (UN).—Nationwide prosperity has brought with it a building boom, but to the flatdweller who is constantly seeking lower rents or better quarters for the same price, this boom doesn't mean anything. This condition, an investigation reveals, prevails in Chicago and to a varying extent throughout the United States. The prediction that rents would be down substantially in May and that there would be an unprecedented number of apartments appear to be borne out as fully as a similar prediction made concerning the first of October, 1922, which was not at all. Hent signs are blooming like spring buds, but according to real estate men here, they have nothing to do with the case. In many instances they are merely a strategic move of landlords in their annual bout with tenants who don't really want to move, but are hoping against hope for a reduction. Meanwhile the building boom here is gaining momentum. March plans call for 3838 new homes, of which 0250 will be apartments and 588 residences. The total for tlie preceding two months was 3890. Turk A ssassins Body Hangs By Leg To Warn All Against Evil Doing Constantinople, Turkey, April 4 <UN).—The bullet-riddled body of Osman Agha will dangle by the log outside the building1 of the Turkish national assembly at Angora as a warning to all evildoers. Kemalist gendarmes shot and killed Osman and 12 of his followers after surrounding them in a house in which they had hidden. In addition to the 13 who were killed, 12 others were wounded and captured. The Osman gang was implicated in the assassination of deputy Ali Sukri Bey. Says Jacobs Asked Her To Arrange For Operation On Dancer San Diego, Calif., April 4 (UN). —Miss Wilma Minor testified that Dr. Louis L.
