Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 23, 1937, Mason City, Iowa El o r NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME VOL XLIII FIVE CENTS A COPV ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SEHVJCK 2 Groups in Washington One for Human Beings and Other for Renters By CHARLES P STEWART ASHING TON CPA Two n e w associa tions are in process of fov mation in W a s h i n gtori whose organiz ers hope to sec them attain na tional propor tions One of the two is a pros pective align ment of ten ants not farm tenants b u tenants of ur ban suites in apart ment houses 01 any other kind of rented homes of better than the tenement class This incipient association is seri ous It is not named yet but it will be It has substantial back ing and may grow into some thing that landlords and their agents will have to reckon with The other sounds freakish as described in advance Its pro moters propose to call itHuman Beings soon it has sufficient strength to justify it in incorporating Its purpose is to fight for the rights of huma1 beings against t h e rights of machines Sponsors of Groups Folk Interested in the welfare of the nations tenants would do well to communicate with William A duPuy thors one of its foundling fa Ordinary human beings are ad vised to set in touch Charles A Hamilton with Either one can be addressed at the National Press club Washing ton D C Both are club members Charley Hamilton is its treasurer too They are alike thoroughly respon sible individuals each committed to a real mission in tenants advocate Charley human beings In Behalf of Tenants large group said Bill duPuy to me the other day is en tirely without national spokesman sliip Columnists I answered No said Bill Theyre a small group though not as small as they ought to be Tenants arc the large group With the improvement in limes rentals are increasing scandalous ly There are cities in which they have risen 30 per cent The coun try is underbuilt as to homes And landlordism is organized air tight Rentals Arc Higher it isnt alone that rentals are higher Restrictions upon tenants are ridiculous I know a tenant whose landlord agreed to take care of the outside of the rented house but it was stipulated that the tenant must take care of the inside The roof sprang a leak and spoiled the wall paper under neath Legally the landlord had to fix the leak but the tenant had to replace the wallpaper Bill takes it for granted that here is the city where resentment against high rentals will originate For example Members of congress especially new ones are furious at the rentals they have to pay For Human Beings Human Beings Incorporated got off lo a queer than Hie start which Associated Tenants mnde The idea originated among pe destrians outraged at the fashion in which traffic regulations are shaped in the interest of automo biles wholly regardless of the wel fare of folk who proceed on foot Time was in horseandbuggy days when the pedestrians had the right of way At least the driver of a horsedrawn vehicle ran over a foot passenger the bur den of the proof was upon him to show that he had not been care less not upon the pedestrian to show that he had not been ob structing a crossing Now in many cities the pedestrian is penalized if he delays isnt any too safe even if he observes ail rules In short such rules arc in tended lo facilitate travel awhecl j not to protect anyone else Walkers Aroused This hasnt been true in Wash ington Here the pedestrian has been legally privileged to be run over if he chooses to take the risk Of late however it has been proposed to subject him as else where to arrest and punishment if he gets in the way Washington moreover is an exceptionally dan gerous automotive town The ar rangement of its streets is eccen tric for one thing There also are numerous autoists such as diplo mats and members of congress who cannot lawfully be held to account for a casual killing at the wheel of a car Talk of an amendment to the District of Columbia code blaming the individual on foot for taking a chance on b e i n s killed has aroused he hostility of D C pe destrians THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBOHS JMASON
