HOUSEWIVES AND TENANTS
Re the housing shortage and persons opening up their homes to tenants: lam a widow living alone and have had a bitter experience. I took a couple in, a newly married pair. They took possession of my place. They have a double bedroom and the use of dining room, etc. I am living in one room and I am told to go to my room as they have more right to the place than I have. They waste gas and electricity and cut wood on the concrete and when I wanted to turn off my radio at nine o'clock the tenant said: "No, you don't; I will turn if off when I have finished with it." They run up toll calls on the telephone and never ask permission. Please grant me this space to save people suffering, as I have done. A VICTIM.
