FOLKS WONDER HOW RIDDELL
HOLDS JOB WITH LOEB
Victims of the con game worked
by Chas. E. Riddell, head of the Lo
gan Square Business college and me
chanical drawing teacher in the Me
dill high school, are wondering what
strange pull he has with President
Jakey Loeb of the school board.
Although Riddell is under convic
tion for swindling Theodore G.
Heyne, 11115 S. Eggleston av.,
Jakey Loeb still allows him to teach
the young people at the Medill high.
Any day Riddell may be snatched
from his pupils and sent to jail to
serve his sentence
Riddell worked his game through
-Ihe medium of V,ic Lawson's Daily
News want aa columns. Just as tne
clairvoyant trust got their suckers
through Examiner ads, so Riddoll
got wealthy from Daily News suck
ers. Heyne says he paid Riddell $30 in
advance for a course of instruction
in motion picture machine operating.
When no lessons were forthcoming
and Riddell refused to give him back
his money, Heyne became suspicious.
He investigated and found that the
municipal court calendars were
clogged with cases of Daily ' News
want ad victims against RiddelL
Heyne then brought his grievance to
State's Att'y Hoyne. RiddelPs indict
ment, trial and conviction went
through in rapid succession. The
conviction was made Dec. 22. Since
then Riddell has managed to have
Judge Pam delay passing sentence.
Meanwhile, Riddell is in charge of
the youngsters at Medill. Loeb re
fuses to-discuss the case.
