Chicago Election Promises One
of Hottest Contests in
City's History.
Judge Lyle, Young Alderman
Chief Contenders for
Mayoralty Chair.
(Bu Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Feb. 21.-A compara-
tive youngster with a reputation as
a fighter and a crusading jurist
who leaped into fame as a foe of,
gangland is challenging the reign
of Chicago's veteran mayor.
Arthur F. Albert, only 32 years
old but an alderman for 10 years,
is one of those trying to oust Mayor
William Hale Thompson in Tues-
day's Republican primary. He is
backed by the faction headed by
Senator Charles S. Deneen.
John H. Lyle, the municipal court
judge whose campaign against the
underworld won him the title "the
nemesis of gangland," is the other
major candidate.
In vastly different ways these two
canididates are saying much the
same thing: They are urging voters
to turn the present administration
out of the city hall, and have hurled
charges of "criminal-political alli-
ances" and of corruption. Each
claims to be the leading anti-
Thompson candidate and asserts
that a vote for the other means a
vote for Thompson.
Bolted Thompson's Group.
Both have been at one time af-
filiated with Thompson's organiza-
tion but both have been outspoken
opponents in recent years.
Although this similarity of argu-1
ment runs through their campaigns
the personalities of the two men
are greatly different and there is
much bitterness in the two camps
because the anti-administration
vote is being split.
Lyle is as spectacular a campaign-
er as he is a spectacular judge. His
stage properties are the deadly

Aldermen Ask Group to Explain
Issue for Water Measure.
The citizens committee, organized
last spring when the $325,000 water
bond issue was up for considera-j
tion, has been recalled by alder-

at 601 Forest avenue, Feb. 5.
Those held in Detroit in connec-
tion with the robbery are Jack Ben-
son, 281 Winder street; Edward
Bellant, 1594 Fairview avenue; Jer-
ry Tulepano, Mitchell hotel; Eli
Fisher, 1594 Fairview avenue; and
William Lescoe, 3475 Hilger avenue.
Joseph Salvo, believed by police
to be the leader of the gang, has
denied that he was involved.

"Newspapers," says this week'sI
Alumnus, "those ordinary, common
t rinted sheets for which people

for years, reading them, and throw-

most cherished possessions of a li-'
brary." Of course yesterday's paper
isn't worth much right now, but'
what about those printed in the
early 1700's and 1800's? The truth'
is that newspapers form a very val-
