The opinion of the court was delivered by: MCVICAR

10. The premises involved were purchased by the defendant in the spring of 1948 for himself, Frank J. Gabriel, Theodore Klotzbaugh, Regis H. Subert and Jessie M. Kaminski. The deed was taken in the name of Murray. The ownership, however, was to vest in the five persons named above, which includes the defendant.

The consideration for the purchase was $ 25,000, $ 5,000 contributed by each of the persons named as owners aforesaid.

 12. There is an extreme shortage of housing in this area available for rental by tenants with moderate incomes.

 13. The landlords of the housing accommodation involved, which are the five owners thereof, did not seek in good faith to recover possession of the housing accommodation for their immediate and personal use and occupancy as a housing accommodation, nor did they seek to recover possession of said housing accommodation for the immediate and personal use and occupancy as a housing accommodation for the defendant.

 Conclusions of Law.

 1. The apartment occupied by Joseph Swartz and Reva L. Swartz, his wife, on the first floor of the building at 5547 Bartlett Street, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, is and was at all of the times involved in this proceeding, a controlled housing accommodation, subject to all of the provisions of the Housing and Rent Act of 1947, as amended.

 2. Under the Housing and Rent Act of 1947, as amended, 50 U.S.C.A.Appendix, § 1881 et seq., Section 206(b), this court has jurisdiction of the subject matter of this action and of the parties herein.

 3. The defendant has engaged and is about to engage in acts and practices which constitute violations of Section 206(a) and 209(a) of the Housing and Rent Act of 1947, as amended, 50 U.S.C.A.Appendix, § 1881 et seq.

 4. An injunction should issue against the defendant, his agents, servants, employees, and any person or persons acting in concert with him or them, restraining them from proceeding further against Joseph Swartz and Reva L. Swartz, his wife, in the proceeding in the Court of Common Pleas at No. 1642 October Term, 1948; restraining them from eviction or threatening to evict the said Joseph Swartz and Reva L. Swartz, his wife, by court proceeding or otherwise, directly or indirectly, upon grounds not approved in the said Act.
