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
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

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

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
