NE CENT-THE DAY BOOK-ONE CENT
ETTELSON WITHDRAWS FROM
With his strongest prop, the cor
poration counsel, kicked from under
him, Chief of Police C. C. Healey
stands well to lose his fight against
enforcement of the fender law.
Corporation Counsel Ettleson to
day withdrew activity from the case
which had been started against
Healey by a fender company to force
him to put the safety law into opera

willingness to go ahead of the law
and try out fenders on its trucks.
Manager Kelly of that store says he
will not wait for Chief Healey if he
can find an efficient fender.
