By LAURIE HARRIS
The court awarded apartment possession yesterday to
defendants Naomi and Thomas Karow in the third rent
strike eviction case brought to trial by Arbor Management.
In addition, the six man jury reduced the Karows' rent
by $30. In an agreement made Thursday, Arbor Management
amended their original charge by reducing the claim $43.69,

heat did not work.
Arbor Management was suing the Karows for back pay-
ment of two months' rent, minus the sum allotted for the
oil bill, and possession of the
