means available to achieve equity
for tenants and lanidlords under
the law," he says.
According to Smith, an investi-
gation is necessary because theJ
IRS has not handled student com-
plaints of violations efficiently.
Lavelle told Smith that tenants
who contact the IRS receive con-
flicting answers from the clerks
who answer the phones, and in1
general are discouraged from pur-
suing their rent freeze complaints.]
Tenants who filed alleged viola-!
tion forms with the IRS months'
ago have not yet received proper
acknowledgement of their com-*
plaints from either their landlords,
or the IRS.
Another reason for investigation,1
Smith explains, is that he feels the:
processing of complaints places anl
-A Ar r 7

unfair burden on tenants. 1
If a tenant wants to know if his'
rent has been raised illegally, he
must first know he has the legalc
right to see the base period leasez
for his apartment. The tenant mustl
be familiar with the Office of
Economic Planning (OEP) regula-t
tionsewhich apply to his apartment
lease. He must then confront his1
landlord with his demand to see
the base period lease.t
If the rent has been raised il-
legally, the tenant must file al
complaint with the IRS, and waitt
for it to be processed.t
Most student complainants claimE
that during Phase I landlords
charged rents higher than what'
they charged for rent during the
base period, July 16 to Aug. 14,
1971. According to the OEP, land-
lords could not charge more dur-
I r" _

ing Phase I than what they
charged during the base period.
The OEP also stipulates that
during Phase II a landlord may
not raise the rent above the base
period level. A landloard can only
raise the rent if he informs his
tenants of the increase in writing
30 days before the actual rent
hike.
Many tenant complaints claim
they received no such notification.
Smith also says there are com-
plaints from the Tenants' Union
that landlords threaten to evict
tenants who refuse to pay the high-

While the IRS is processing their'
complaints, the students purport-
edly placed the extra money in
escrow accounts, which is in ac-
cordance with OEP suggestions.
Under these circumstances, any
type of retaliatory eviction is for-
bidden by the Economic Stabiliza-
tion Act.1
If there are any cases of de-
liberate, pre-emptive attempts byj
landlords to obtain higher rents
illegally, Smithbsays the full pen-
alty provided for by the Economicj
Stabilization Act should be imposed

Although not terribly similar,
there is a sense of deja vu about
the current fires, as both Police
Chief Walter Krasny and Fire
Chief Arthur Stauch were involv-
ed in the 1950 case. Krasny was
one of the detectives involved in
the arrest, while Stauch helped
fight the fire.
One also notices when looking
through accounts of the fire, that
the University of 1950 was a far
different place than it is today.
There was a great amount of
student cooperation in battling
the fire, for instance, although

according to some observers, all of
it was not particularly effective.
One brigade of students in their
enthusiasm to help, inadvertently
tied two hose ends together and
rushed to the blaze with a cir-
cular piece of hose.
Another student who was tak-
ing a final exam at the time, went
back into the, smoldering building
to rescue a bluebook he had been
working on.
The ultimate comment on the
case, however, was made by Presi-
dent Alexander Ruthven. In an
address before alumni shortly
after the fire, Ruthven instructed
those gathered, "Have fun, but be
careful with your matches."
