POLAIRE DANCES WITH BLINDED SOLDIERS TO
RAISE RELIEF FUND
1 Mile. Pol aire, the noted French dancer, is now appearing in Paris cafes
dancing with a blinded soldier. Their dance over she passes a hat for con
tributions to a war relief fund she is raising. Polaire claims the distinction
of being the "ugliest woman in the world."
MAYOR GIVES BACK' BRISTOL
The saloon license of the Bristol
cafe, 6319 S. Halsted st, was re
stored by Mayor Thompson yester
day a few minutes before a hurried
trip out of town.
The mayor revoked the license on
Dec. 30 on affidavits handed him by
John H. Lyle president- of the Engle
wood Law and Order league. Since
the revocation city hall reporters
have heard rumors that it was to be
restored. A dozen times-they-asked
the mayor about this and each time
he refuted it
Chief Healey recommended that
the-license be restored because some
"reputable citizens" had appeared
with the saloonkeeper and asked him
to. He couldn't recall their names.
This is the same method by which
the mayor restored the licenses of
saloons he closed for violating his
Sunday closing order.
Lyle said he was disappointed in
the mayor and that he gave Thomp
son enough affidavits to keep the
place closed forever.
