Chicago, Aug. 30. Chicago tango
ists in one mad swirl and dip kicked
with sp'.ieful grace the Argentina
. ; "'walking, wiggling dance" out of this
city'B restaurants this morning.
At exactly 1 o'clock, or thereabouts,
!n the Lambs' cafe, the Stale's restaur
ant. College Inn, Bismarck Garden,
Wh'te City, San Souci and other
"rlaces of public refreshment" the out
lawed swaying glide was banished,
and the public hereafter will enjoy i's
tango as rpectators, not as particl
lants, in the cafes and restaurants.
At 1 o'clock the dance had been a
violation of the statute wisdom of the
city guardians for an hour. Technical
ly the seductive sway and sidestep
was barred from midnight, beginning
"Oh, we won't split hairs; they will
be allowed to continue to the usual
closing hour of the place, 1 o'clock,"
Mayor Harrison had said.
"Maybe 1:15?'' was queried.
"Just 1," was the reply.
In the places here a section of
fleer has furnished scant room for the
liltir.e, whirling capers of the various
"Echocla" of tacgo dancers, another
tow of tables had been removed, so the
kneli of public enjoyment, if such it
may be called, of the trpsichorean
product of Argentina might "have
room to die comfortably in," as one
manager expressed it.
Devotees of the skip and halt, the
elide and dip and the sidestep and
rythmic walk foregathered before 8
j o clock last night as there would be

kneetf. perhaps, tango hosiery and
' filmy lace draped about charming

! bltion. Conservative watchers agreed
' the exposition must, have justified the
j trouble fair wearers had gone to.
I "It's a sad hour," agreed "Frowney"
j ( crbeit, formerly "Smiley" Corbett,
, manager of Lambs' cafe, as the hour
crew near for closing. As a special
favor the orchestra cut r-hort, the in

Mar.ager Bering of the Chicago Inn
was f ympaihetic. but not depressed.
"We Ye always filled in the winter any-
way. he explained. "The tango was
, all rig.it. as an afract'on during the
'summer, but I think the patrons them
1 reives were growing somewhat tired
: of it. We'll rave teams of professional

tory and travel, spent months in Panama and tho Canal Zone In the preparation of this volume. He col
lected at first hand the complete history of the great Canal, with a wealth of historical data concerning
Panama which has never before been written. The result is a human Interest story of this beautiful
land and its people from the early day6 when Columbus tried to find a natural waterway from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, down to th3 present time.
Our Special staff photoe-aphers made the hundreds of beautiful views witn
