DOCTOR1 SAYS BOY KILLED BY
SHEARS MIGHT HAVE LIVED
Nick Moga, gardener of the Saddle
and Cycle club, who threw a pair of
shears at Willie Ulrey, 14, when the
boy crossed the "sacred" grounds of
the club, inflicting a wound that
caused the hoy's death, took thei
stand shortly, before adjournment in
Judge Barrett's courtroom. 1
Moga, who is a Roumanian, will,
plead that the boys threw stones at
him and that the hurling of the
shears was merely'the result of reflex
action. A physician, testifying for
Moga, said the .boy's wound would
not necessarily have caused death if
it had been "properly treated."
. The Boys' Brotherhood Republic,
iri a statement to The Day Book to
day, made clear its stand on the Moga
trial. "We are not out after Nick
Moga, said one of the boys. "We
simply want to see that both sides in
the trial get fair treatment. We will
continue our fight, however, for the
right to use the property in front of
the Saddle and Cycle club. We be
lieve it is public property and that the
club has ;no right to hog it and drive
boys away from swimming at that

EXPRESS WAGON DRIVERS MAY
Astrike affecting the express wa
gon drivers may be called in Chicago
within the next 48 hours. It may be
called late this afternoon.

gunmen on the wagons and broke up
the strike after a long struggle.
The drivers are in a much better
position to strike now than they were
then. The Christmas rush should be
an aid to the strikers.
