have begun if it takes a year before
its conclusion," said 13-year-old Mary

of Louis J. Weigle, broker and club
man, who was arrested after the girl
accused him of insulting her on Illi

The- folks who used to tango
From night 'til early morn
Will have to cut it out because
It's looked upon with scorn.
The local health committee think
The all-night dances wrong,
So they're going to ask our council
To ring the curfew gong.
