PARENTS OF SCHOOL KIDS
ROW WITH HOLPUCH
"Sake Loeb and Joe Holpuch faced
accusations yesterday from a stormy
delegation of men and women from
the McAllister school on the edge of
the stockyards district
The school board is running things
all for the Armours and Swifts, and
for manufacturing interests, while
the working class folks are getting
only "smoke, ashes and taxes," was
the gist of speeches by Mrs. George
F. Tierney of 3729 S. Morgan st and
A. W. Gerber of 3631 S. Halsted st
Gerber said four classrooms of chil
dren have been sent to other school
districts, and that, while a $1,500,000
high school is going up in a fashion
able north shore district, the McAllis
ter school next to "the yards" must
get along with rickety wooden stairs
and fire-trap dangers. What! with
stories of factories wanting to locate
about where the McAllister school
stands, Gerber said the school
board's neglect of the school looked
to him like a conspiracyto "sell out"
to packing or manufacturing inter
ests. Joe Holpuch, contractor, banker
and real estate dealer, got hot under
the collar. He lives on the edge of
the district involved and figures in
discussions of the situation.
Holpuch roared at the people from
the stockyards district. He roared
his roaringest roars. But the people
from S. Halsted are used to hearing
the bellowing of steers, the cries of
deep-chested, hairy animals voicing
anger and grief. So nobody got
scared at all when Holpuch threat
ened to have Gerber thrown -out of
the board rooms. Vice Pres. Eckhart
came on to help Holpuch. They were
about ready to officially and sancti
moniously oust the McAllister School
Protective ass'n when said associa
tion members just put on their hats
and walked out In their fadeaway
Gerber called Trustee Holpuch "con
temptible," and women shouted, "We
will take our children out of the
schools."
o o
JUDGE AND STATE'S ATTORNEY
HAVE WORDY WAR
A breath of the feeling that is said
to exist between the morals court
and the juvenile court cropped out
yesterday when Judge Harry Fisher
and Ass't State's Att'y Rob't Hogan
had a wordy scrap in Fisher's morals
court.
When Julia Doyle, sleuth for the
juvenile court, tried to defend a girl
on trial, Judge Fisher started ques
tioning her, to which Hogan object
ed. Fisher grew angry and ordered
Hogan to get out of the courtroom
and then to sit down. Hogan did
neither.
o o
MEETING TO PROTEST LAYING
BOMB BLAME TO LABOR
A mass meeting to protest against
the alleged conspiracy against organ
ized labor in the preparedness parade
bomb cases now on trial in San Fran
cisco will be held tonight at West
Side Auditorium, Taylor and Racine
av. h'
Pres. John Fitzpatrick df the C. F.
of L., Jim Larkin, who has been to
San Francisco to personally investi
gate, and Adolph Germer will be
among the speakers.
o o
ARREST BARTENDER PICKETS
Two bartenders picketing the Bis
marck gardens, where union waiters,
cooks and bartenders are on strike,
were arrested today on conspiracy
charges.
The conspiracy seems to have been
that the two C. B. McLean and T.
S. McCarty were walking in the
street before the gardens with signs
in their hats which read: '.'Bismarck
Hotel and Gardens Unfair to Union
Labor." They were released on bonds
of $500 each.

cago, has gone to front to fight for
France.
