MANDEL'S SUB-BASEMENT IS IN
, AGAIN BUT NOT FAR
Chas. Bostrom, Mayor Thompson's
' . newly-appointed bldg. commissioner,
today tried to dodge responsibility for
( action by his department on the Man
del Bros.' sub-basement issue and.
, passed the buck to Health Comm'r
Robertson by saying it was more1 a
question of sanitation than of public
safety. The health comm'r has the
, power to revoke the license of a place
he deems unsanitary just as the
building inspector can revoke the li-
. cense of a place deemed unsafe. -Dr.
Robertson nas said that he
thinks conditions in Mandel Bros.'
; sub-basement are sanitary.
Former Corporation Counsel Sex

. against the suh-basement, is now
t lobbying in counciT in its favor.
' "The council is going to -find out,
why this sub-basement is not closed,
' 'when it is being operated in clear vio-
lation of law," said Aid. Pretzet

tinuing their 'drive tpward Parral,
American troops today were believed
to be almost on heels of Pancho Villa.
Bandit chieftain's whereabouts were
not definitely known, but officers at
expeditionary headquarters said they

significant-reports of Carranzista co
operation. ' Courteous treatment re
ceived from Carranzistas by Amer
