Housing Official Asked » 'Continued From Page 1) not be possible to have an official here at the requested time. The group of Negroes that met at city hall charged that em - ployes of the housing board had entered homes in Archer Courts without proper notification and that utilities had been cut off without proper notice. They also complained that some of the residents of Archer Courts and other low - rent housing units were no longer in low income brackets. Taylor and members of the housing authority board have denied all the charges and have produced records and leases to show they have not violated policies established by the Public Housing Administration. The Sun talked to Odom, a Negro, in Fort Worth Thursday. He defended the eviction process in public housing units and said rent is due on the first of the month in advance, but "local authorities use their prerogatives under hardship cases if p a y- ment cannot be made." "This is purely a local matter," Odom said. "This (the rent) is the only revenue they hav e to operate the housing units. They must have the rent in order to pay salaries of the administrative staff, to buy supplies and keep up the maintenance of the units." Odom said the federal agency makes no payment toward the operation of the units. "The local authorities must collect enough to operate on.' Eviction by court orders. Odom continued, 'is not common but it is legal." Odom said usually when there is a case where eviction is necessary, the tenant realizes he must move and it is not necessary to use the power of a court order. "Housing authorities do have !he authority to ask for eviction. This is spelled out in the lease," he said. Under the conditions of the lease, the tenant must have two week's notice of eviction. Likewise a tenant may give two weeks' notice when he is leaving, Odom explained. Odom said he could not comment on the eviction of Mrs. Carrie Lee Williams in Archer Court or other complaints here until all facts were gathered in the case. He said an investigation complaint should be directed to Earl Eullington, assistant director for -nanagement. Public Housing Administration in Fort Worth. Odom has visited in Baytown several times on Public Housing Administration business and was the main sneaker at a meeting ot the Baytown Human Rela - tions Council at a meeting in November, 19S4. At that time he pointed out the need for all races to be represented on the local housing authority boards of commissioners. Not long afterward, the first Negro was appointed to the Baytown board. Trustee Is Appointed-- (Continued From Page 1) bitterly criticized The Baytown Sun and declared that it had failed to carry his side of stories and arguments at board meetings. He added that the newspaper wouldn't do this because le wasn't on what the paper con sidered "the right side" and tha hoped "you (members of the audience) will spread the word." .-ited to the dinner and special) President Beavers would not neeting in Baytown.
