HOYNE TO GET AFTER 'EM
Before State's Attorney Hoyne left
town last night for a rest over today
and Sunday, he said to The Day
Book:
"I'm going to take a two day's rest,
but will he back on the job Monday.
I will immediately do everything the
state's attorney has power to do to
relieve the public from the pressure
of war prices for the necessaries of
life. The Day Book's suggestion that
we find out how much food is stored
in the cold storage plants and held
there to regulate supply and raise
prices is a good one, and I will have
it investigated thoroughly. It would
be a proper matter for the imme
diate consideration of the grand
jury."
