LEADERS IN RENT
ORDERED TO MOVE
t Two Tenants of Angelus Apart
ments Given Notice to
Beecher Higby and S. M. Gunsaul,
tenants of the Angelus apartments,
204 South Twenty-fifth avenue, have
been served with notices to vacate,
because they were leaders in the
recent demonstration of occupants
of this flat in a general protest
against the increased schedule of
T. A. Donohoe, manager of the
apartments, served the notices Sep
tember 2, giving these tenants three
days in which to move.
Mr. Hibgy and Mr. Gunsaul have
retained G. W. Shields to represent
them and protect their interests and
"We will fight the case. I do not
care to disclose our intended pro
cedure at this time, but you may
say that we will fight the notices to
vacate," said Mr. Shields.
Mr. Higby and Mr. Gunsaul were
recently served with notices that
their rents would be increased $15
per month, beginning October 1.
Other tenants of the Angelus were
similarly notified of increases, not
all being as much as $15 per month.
The Angelus tenants held a
meetiug and decided to file formal
protest with Mr. Donohoe, which
was done. Messrs. Higby and Gun
saul were among those who were
most outspoken in their expressions
against the increases. Mr. Higby
appeared before the city council at
two rent investigation meetings and
voiced his protests there.
Mr, Donohoe admitted that he
' served the ouster notices on Messrs.
It is understood that the tenants
who have been serVed notices to
vacate can take advantage of a law
, which would make them secure in
their present locations for more
than six months if they want to
follow that course.
Tenants of the Beaton apart
ments. Thirty-second and Farnam
streets, report that no raise in rents
has been announced. It is ex
plained that this arrangement ap
plies' to present tenants who were
subject to an increase of $5 per
month a year ago.
City Commissioner Butler reports
that he is proceeding with his in
vestigation of valuation records as
applied to flats and apartments.
This is in connection with a resolu
tion adopted a week ago by the
"I am checking up the valuation
figures in the county assessor's of-
. fice and I am giving the assessor
the new valuation figures which the
- apartment and flat owners and man
agers claim should be applied in jus
tifying their new schedule of rents,"
Mr. Butler said.

Fields Are Needed
For Big Airplanes
The wreck of the huge Lawson
transcontinental airliner at Syra
cuse, N. Y., Thursday, was caused
by the smallness of the field in
which it landed, in the opinion of
Assistant Commissioner Ellis, of the
Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Ellis has been in close com
munication with Alfred W. Lawson,
builder of the giant passenger plane
for some time, and Mr. Lawson on
several occasions emphasized the
need of a very large field for land
ing, Mr. Ellis says.
"We are making preparation to
put the Ak-Sar-Ben field in shape
for the arrival of the airliner," said
Mr. Ellis, "and will continue in
spite of the wreck. We are also
planning to secure a much larger
field and may have it by the timehe
Lawson plane arrives.
It is only a. matter of time till
every municipality will have to pro
vide large landing fields for such
planes as Mr. Lawson has built."

in the men's furnishings business that men are
fastidious to a peculiar extent. Usually they
