MILLION DOLLAR SCHOOL LAND
GRAB UNDER COVER
The Tribune, itself a school land
lessee at a rental $25,000 annually
below current adjacent rentals, today
didn't print a line of news not a
whisper .about the speech in Chica
go Federation of Labor meeting yes
terday where Victor Olander, secre
tary Illinois Federation of4 Labor, dis
cussed a big school land deal now
taking shape in the school board and
Olander showed that passage of
Sen. Percy Baldwin's bill in Spring
field will open the way for the school
board to sell an entire section of
school land in Clearing.
The Chicago Belt Line railroad,
owned by Armour and Marshall Field
estate interests, has now a shortr
time lease on part of the land.
"The section is said to be worth
$1,000,000," Olander saidT "I think
it is significant that Sen. Baldwin,
the author of the bill, is in the real
estate business in that district."
As things are now, the city coun
cil has power to say yes or no on any
deal of the school board for selling
public school land. The Baldwin bill
would teke this power away from the
city council and place it fully and un
restrictedly in the hands of the
school board. Olanaer pointed to the
secrecy with which the Baldwin bill
was prepared, how its introduction
was a surprise and how, public hear
ing on it has been suppressed.
"Unless something is done at once
the public schools will be despoiled
of land worth $1,000,000. There are
forces on the board of education who
believe much of this land should be
sold. "It bhs been advocated openly
during the present administration of
