dency of the school board has not
been announced as .yet by him,
although he has an advance editorial
endorsement for it in a Tribune edi
torial. The election is Dec. 6.

as a candidate the day after last
Wednesday If the election returns in
Cook county had shown Mayor
Thompson's candidate winner for
state's attorney," said one of the

have hard going. So he is having the
Tribune feel the way for him an3
save him from announcing himself
as a candidate."
