It has been brought to the attention of the rent commission that threats of eject ment are being made In some cases. Suite to eject for refusal to pay Increases in rent cannot be main tained, and tenants should not allow themselves to be frightened into agreeing to pay additional rent by reason of threats. "Tenants should continue to pay the same rent as they have been pay tig. until the rent commission, upon lie application of the landlord, has missed upon t>3 proposed Increase."

Investigation of the "half-and-half" plan of appropriation for the District of Colombia was ordered today by the Senate District Committee. Largely on the action to be taken in the Senate hangs the rate of the half-an-halr plan, which the House already has voted to abolish. On motion or Senator Jones, Re publican, of Washington. Chairman Sherman was aulhoriied to appoint a subcommittee or three members to make the. investigation. A vote on the Mspes bill, abolishing the llme/ionored half-and-half plan, was narrowly averted In committee today. Senator Jonae.and others were ready to vote on It at once. "I believe the half-and-half plan ahould be preserved." said Senator Jones, who .has always fought hard for the bill whenever a crusadc against It came up In the Senate. It was the consensus of opinion, however, that action on the bill should be postponed until the sub? committee could Investigate thor oughly the flal relation.* between the District and Federal governments. The rubeommlttee will direct It? Investigation chiefly to ascertaining If property In the District is taxed In the same proportion as property In other cities. The principal charge against th-i halfiand half plan is based on the claim that propertyownsro of the District are escaping with a very light tax. one out of all proportions to the amount they should pay. Senator Jones said h? could not tell at this time whether It would be ne cessary to hold hearings, The Mouse District Committee went thoroughly into th? whola question, and the printed hearings ara available to the Senate committee. In as much as the investigation will reopen the entire question of con tinuing the half-and-half plan, it is probable also that hearings will he reopened by Mm subcommittee after li nee been appointed Only Forty-four New Cates of Malady Reported in Last Twenty-four Hours.
