drew his order dismissing Francis
Hanna, morals inspector, from thj
police department. Earlier in the
day the chief received a note from
the corporation counsel's office tell
ing him that the order was illegal and m a

order he could have been cited for
contempt of court, because Hanna
had gone before Judge Foell and ob
tained an order restraining Healey
from dismissing him.

nothing on me," Hanna said. "I have
been operating m'y department on
two-thirds of the appropriation Dan
nenberg had and am making twice as
many inspections and arrests. I claim
my record is good."
