_WEDCTI8PAT t - Th» Nation Today: N«w Situation' on IUi-t Central— Shooting Spree About to Start In Cold War Over Rent Controls (A«K.)' COURIER By MAX HALL (Far Jin« Mu-lowj WASHINGTON, Nov. _, . . — .) j The cold war over rent controls Is voted to de-control the city. Oppo- «bout "to break out Into another •hooting spree to Congress. Every- end ' osfc - But the actual de-control- °°dy duck. ling does not lake place until expediter Woods signs the order, and this Woods refused to do. He says no evidence wai present- i happens once or twice each ._B>. But It's a bit different this time. The battlefront will be somewhat hard to trace on the map. Rent controls have been largely in th» hinds ol local communities for some time now, and there U rio uniformity In the land. American cities and towns fall , into several groups. !. Some have never been under rent controls. 2. Some have de-controlled themselves They decided they no longer needed rent ceilings. So they took advantage of a federal law passed L n - 1949, and got rid of them. This group Includes Miami, Sin Diego Oklahoma City and about 400 othe-' communities. 3. Some have been de-controlled on the initiative of the federal government, on the ground that the housing shortage had ended there. More th»n 600 communities art In this group. 4. Some have been de-controlled by their state legislatures. Examples: All places in Virginia, Alabama. Texas and Nebraska. New York state went out from under federal controls a year ago but Is governed by a state rent control law instead. _ 5. Some communities have decided to continue rent controls until the middle .of next year. A law approved last June permits them to do this, either by action of their governing bodies or by a vote of the people. This group Includes Chlca- >ston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh .. . nils and about 700 other places! 6. More than 3.000 communities under federal rent controls have done nothing. And therefore, under the law of last June, their rent controls will automatically end on Dec. 31, unless they take action to extend them — or unless Congress DOES. 'This 'large group embracing pernopr 40.000,000 people, include' Cleveland, Cincinnati. Baltimore San Francisco. Kansas City, Seattle Atlanta, and New Orleans. 81st to Decide When Hie old 81st Congress meets next Monday for its brief final Cession, it must decide what to dc about the last group described above President Truman wants the cutoff date extended three months beyond Dec. -31, That is. until March 31.
