There were only five districts in the county which decreased their rate for 1930 under that of 1929. Long Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Monica and South aPsadena are the only cities with a lower rate. In all of these cities an increase was recorded in 1930.

Attorneys representing V. Bartold, recently convicted in the local police court of violation of Ordinance No.* 170, and amended as Ordinance No. 217, which is a zoning ordinance defining Class A zone as a single family residential district, «411 appear at the council meeting tomorrow night and ask for a clarification of the ordinance, it is said.  “Is there a shortage of houses for rent in Arcadia?”  This question has been the topic for some time past, and during the past week a survey has been made, with the result ascertained that one wishing to* rent a house has a hard time to find one.  Arcadia today undoubtedly has a shortage of houses for rent, more so than any other city of our size in the western part of the San Gabriel Valley. New arrivals here deplore the fact that they cannot get accommodations. Real estate offices are receiving inquiries daily from parties seeking to rent homes in this city.  Men and women call at this of-  Questionnaire On Civic Center, and City Hall Proposals  This newspaper recently inserted a questionnaire, seeking to obtain some definite information as to the attitude of the citizens with reference to the proposed new civic center, as well as the proposed sale of the city hall property at the corner of First avenue and Huntington Drive.  At time of going to press today we have received several replie:', but not enough to definitely determine the general status of opinion regarding the two proposals. We are withholding a summary uiv.il additional replies have been received, which may be next week.  JOURNAL COMES OUT TODAY IN A NEW APPEARANCE  •-.i*-  , *» • À  > <!

Ferguson Dies at Private Hospital in L. A,  •v.  h (Special Correspondence - )  DUARTE, Jan. 6.—William Allen Ferguson, 44 years of age> formerly horticultural inspector, and resident of this section for the past 26 years, died at a private hospital in Los Angeles, Sunday.  Mr. Ferguson has been in po»r health about eijht years.  ■ Deceased is survived by one sis- council to amend an/i more defin  a TB home as recently published), but Judge Gibbs held Bartold guilty of violation of Ordinance No. 170, and did not consider the “rest home” phase of the case. Since Bartold’s conviction several have called at the office of the police court for copies of the ordinance.  Bartold claims others in that section are violating the ordinance, and if his conviction stands, he will file complaint against those whom, he says, áre also violating the ordinance by keeping others than those who actually belong to the family, and who are not dependent upon the family for support.  Judge Gibbs gave Bartold a suspended sentence of ninety days in jail, with t"he understanding that within sixty days he will discontinue keeping boarders.  Whether the case will be appealed is not yet known, but there is a probability that the case may go to a higher court, Atty. Bou-yard of Los Angeles represented Bartold at the recent trial here.  Judge Gibbs' ruling concerning the* keeping of boarders in Class A zones, restricted to single families, has greatly disturbed many citizens of the city, it is claimed, as this practice is in vogue in numerous parts of the city where the Class A zone is in efiec t,  This new angle may force the  classified page hoping to find Angeles county unit of the Cali- i papers per hour, homes for rent advertised.

The outcome of the meeting tomorrow night is awaited with much concern, according to officials fu-miliar with the isaue, and it is not certain that the present ordinance is ample under the emergencies now arising.  ‘‘We have lagged in home construction during the past years; we have few .apartments to house families who wish to rent, and it is a well known fact that one cannot get a room overnight in the city of Arcadia, and is forced to go to a neighboring city for accommodations.  “There are.acres of vacant lots, very desirable for homes, and if the owners could be induced to build, it would certainly take care of the new arrivals in this city looking for homes,  “Something must be done before long to take care of this shortage of homes;, a shortage that will become drastic to all concerned, if rental homes are not provided for the new-comers.
