Just far they advanced was j not stated, but it v.-as announced they had pushed beyond Efogi. which was captured the previous day, and still were goir.g ahead. Efogi is 64 miles by the circuitous jungle trail from the Allied base at Port Moresby and about seven miles from the Owen Stanley Gap. Apparently they had not yet caught up with the main body of the Japanese force, which the com- munique indirated was retreating. No details of the fighting were given.

City Traffic Violations Drop When Fines Jump Tenants Get More Protection Henderson Moves To Curb Eviction, High Cost Houses Adminis- trator Leon Henderson announced Sunday night that rents in every area of the nation not now con- i trolled would be stabilized at the level of March 1, 1942. The order, I carrying out the President's anti- inflation directive, will be issued tomorrow. Henderson also announced that j existing regulations on rent control I would be amended to prevent evic- tion of tenants through the sale of I property except in cases of legiti- jnate roaHy transactions or where [hardship would result to the prop- if he could not obtain .possession. Must Regulate Rents Henderson called upon all land- lords who have increased rents since March 1 to reduce them to the former level and ssid that the Office of Price Administration would "establish machinery for en- forcement and administration of this national extension of rent reg- ulations :is rapidly as administra- tively feasible." In this connection Paul A. Porter, deputy administrator in charge of rents, said that the OPA would need more funds than Congress voted it in the mid-summer budget squabble. The OPA asked for S210.- 000.000 then but got only '000. The stabilization of rents in areas i not now controlled is estimated by officials to affect some householders. Henderson said it would mean "that.the cost of hoas- ing to American most important single item in their budg- et be kept stable throughout the war." High Prices Hit In discussing the prospective ac- tion to curb evictions, Henderson reported "a growing practice of owners forcing tenants to purchase the premises in many cases at ex- orbitant prices."
