ONE CENT--THE DAY BOOK-ONE CENT
"VERY GOOD, EDDIE," NOW HOW
Ass't City Prosecutor-Eddie Lyons,
assigned to the morals court, became
much peeved at The Day Book -when
testifying today before the civil serv
ice commission in the trial of Morals
Inspector Francis Hanna.
"I want to say now that I won't
stand for any more misstatements in
The Day Book," declared Lyons, his
face and the unprotected portion of
his head red with anger.
Eddie then went on to say that in
Judge Uhlir's chambers Hanna had
told him that "the chief did not use
all his information in his reports to
prosecute and investigate fox trots
and disorderly resorts."
Hanna denied this, and said the
only thing he had ever discussed with
Lyons was politics.
The Day Book yesterday said
Lyons told the commission he be
lieved Judge TJhlir held one case in his
docket to prosecute the fox trot club.
Evidently that was what made Eddie
angry and caused him to grow so bel
ligerent to the commission.
Miss Harriet Vittum testified she
had found Hanna an efficient officer.
