'JUDGE RYAN FAILS TO SOLVE
PROBLEM USES STALE LAW
Municipal Judge Ryan, yesterday
harked back to ancient days and re
vived a statute thought long dead in
Illinois when he threw a man into the
county jail because-he couldn't pay
his grocery bill. "
Yesterday Peter Delitch was ar
raigned before Ryan. David Sanich,
a grocer, 10815 Hoxie av., had him
arrested because Delitch had run up
a bill for $57 worth of groceries with
out having the wherewithal to pay.
Ryan glared at the defendant.
"What are you going to do about it?"
The man shrugged his shoulders.
He couldn't pay.
Then the judge brought in the law
that hasn't been used in Cook county
"Bailiff, ship this man to the coun
ty jail and keep him there until he
pays the bill," the judge snapped.
He didn't try to solve the question,
however, as to how Delitch is going
to earn the money to pay the bill
while in jail.

If we had a goat
Yes, a cut little goat
Who would eat all his meals
From the gutter.
And we gave this goat
A rabbit to eat,
Would that be a hare
In the butter?
