GENERAL BOOST IN HOME RENTS FORESHADOWED Tenants of "Elwood" Apart ments Notified They Must Pay $50 More a Month or Get Out. Marked advance in the rental scale for Omaha houses and apart merits is foreshadowed in notices terved yesterday by J. L. Hiatt Real Estate company on tenants of the "Elwood" apartments, Forty-ninth and Dodge streets, that the better apartments would be worth $125 a month on October 1 and thereafter, an increase from $75 or 66 2-3 per cent. Occupants of the Elwood apart ments are notified that "no attempt is made to 'force' them to pay this increase," and that 'if they find that they cannot pay it, and want to move, every effort will be given them by the company to find a new place to live, at the rent they can afford to pay." The notice served upon tenants of the Elwood further "suggests" that the rent will be raised from $75 to $125 a month because the Elwood i to be made one of the classiest apartment houses in Omaha," and because "unequaled service will be rendered." Those tenants who feel that this "slight" increase of $50 a month in their rent is too much are requested to let the real estate company know at once, "so that the long list of those waiting for a chance to get into the Elwood may be served." The big increase in rent was a jolt yesterday to tenants of the Elwood, who had expected nothing of the sort, and many made hurried plans to assume new quarters. The enormous increase in rents at the Elwood is onljone instance of a general increase in rents all over the city which have been put in ef fect recently. This is particularly true of rent houses. On the north side a number of houses that rented a year ago for $20 are now listed at $40.
