Since May 15, mayor Kennelly has rung up a number of what most mayors would describe As achievements. For examples the school system was Ridden by politics. Kennelly proposed centralizing authority in the superintendent. Organized labor bitterly opposed the idea. Kennelly called in their spokesman and representatives of other interested groups sat them around a table and told them a gentlemen i think there is some misunderstanding. Let to Iron it it took All Day. But the result was full agreement. The measure went through the Republican controlled legislature. One of Kennelly to first acts was to appoint a housing commission of non political leaders. Err a Ai i my a m Tiou ing ii emergency. A housing Isno to a he told them. A oils an emergency. We j done to want any More surveys or studies. We want a definite i working a summer to hard work produced a slum clearance new housing program.

A vacancy and two unforced resignations permitted Kennelly to get a civil service commission genuinely interested in the Merit j system. The legislature has approved a new Central purchasing j Agency and Kennelly is trying to j find a $50,000 a year commissioner i who can and will serve for $10-$12,000 a year. He called in Kelly to police commissioner. John c. Prender Gast and told him a of you Treth i Boss. I believe you tre honest. From now on you tre taking orders from i nobody but me.

Visitors to the Windy City Long have been disgusted by its filthy streets. Garbage collections from Homes lagged to an average of less than once a week. In some sections householders would pass up empty garbage cans to toe their filth into vacant lots. Kennelly got onto that too. He has been conducting a Campaign to build up neighbourhood Pride. He has stepped up the morale of Street cleaners and garbage collectors. He has got collections Back onto a once a week basis which May seem pretty bed in some cities but is at least Par boys 16, face Kidnap charges Oklahoma City the Federal Bureau of investigation mid a Lindbergh Lear Quot Kidnap i charge would be filed in Federal court against two Chicago boy accused of tying a texan to a hotel j bed Here at gun Point and then stealing his car.

In addition the general a insurance fund has been drawing three per cent interest from the taxpayer while it has been in the u s. Treasury.
