LOOK'S LIKE PHONE DEAL WILL
BE ON SftELF FOR SUMMER
It looks as tohugh there won't be
anything doing on that telephone
merger stuff in the city council till

mer vacaion its "over and summer is
gone. Somebody wants it to go slow.
Three times now officers and dele
gates of the Penny Phone League and
women's civic clubs have gone to a
meeting of the committee on gas, oil
and electric light Yesterday as be
fore, they were told Corporation
Counsel W, H. Sexton isn't ready yet
with an opinion on whether the city
has a right to seize and operate the
Automatic system if that company
hasn't 20,000 subscribers as the fran
chise -specifies .
Once more the Penny Phone
Leaguers and others were told the
opinion will be ready next week. Mor
ton L. Johnson, president of the Pen
ny Phone League, said:
"There is no good reason furnished
us why the city administration is de
laying on this. "When a delegation of
North Side women went to Mayor
Harrison Wednesday he told them,
',My,mind is ppen.Qn this Question, and
I would like to have all the facts.'
"If Mayor Harrison win do some
thing that will get quicker action
from his city law department, all of
us will be able to get t certain facts
a good deal earlier. We want action
and we're tired of this stalling.
"Mr. Sexton'himselfs knows this is
a serious situation. It was warm
enough last year for him to make a.
trip in September to see Attorney
General McReynolds on how the pro
uosed merger was affected by the
anti-trust law. We know that he saw
the attorney general, but we don't
know from him whatt the attorney
general told him. No report has ever
been given out Our attorney has been
given out Our attorney has been at
each committee meeting ready to
hand in our brief if the city was ready.
Let's have action."
