Informed sources reported
Thursday .that J. Edgar Hoover,
director of the Federal Bureau
of Investigation, would retire from
his post next Jan: 1. On th'at date,
Hoover will be 75.
In a story by Sol .Friedman in
the Miami Herald, the informa-
tion was attributed to "certain at-

Washington for a State Attorn-
eys-General's conference.

Hoover°, who holds an all-time
record for tenure in a federal
agency, took over the FBI in the
1930's and organized the bureau

Hoover introduced a new breed
of college-educated crime fighters
who helped break up gangsterisin

the evidence that sent alleged

many as ou strixing tenants.

Many tenants have been scared
initially by notices to quit which
were sent to them by their land-
lord. The notice toquit is not
an eviction notice, but a notice
announcing that legal action will
begin, said Dale Berry, the mem-
ber of the rent strike committee
in charge of the legal defense.
In order to evict a tenant, a
landlord must have first made
a demand for payment of r e n t
according to Michigan law. This
demand is in the form of a notice
to quit. If the tenant does not
pay his rent within -7 days, the
landlord may then initiate legal
action for a summary eviction.
Berry and David Goldstein, also
a law student on the strike steer-
ing committee, both emphasize
that a landlord may not evict a
tenant for nonpayment of rent
without a court order.
The legal strategy of the rent
strike according to Berry is to
use the legal defenses available
to delay a final judgement against
the striking tenant. If the judge-
ment can be delayed for a signi-
ficant amount of time - from 2-
4 months - the landlord, might be
convinced before then to settle
with the Tenant's Union's de-
At a press conference yesterday,
David Shapiro, a member of the
rent strike steering committee
said that as little as a month's
loss of rent for a landlord with
a 20 - 30 per cent concentration of
striking tenants would hurt him
significantly financially.
Besides using various I e g a I de-
fens's Goldstein says that as few
as 300 eviction cases would be
needed to flood the courts, which
would also delay action.
Another way of avoiding evic-
tion is simply for the tenant to
pay his rent. In most cases, if
the judgement is in favor of the
landlord, the tenant may still be
able to avoid eviction by paying
his back rent and court costs
within 10 days of the final court
