SUNDAY BOWLING IS TO GO
IN MOLINE HEREAFTER
The Moline council last evening, by
a vote of 10 to 3. adopted the amend
ment to the city ordinance allowing
the pool rooms ami bowling alleys to
open on Sunday.
The argument that persons wanting
these diversions i n Sunday could, find
them in either Hock Island or Daven
port and that Moline might as well
keep the business at home had weight
with the aldermen, who voted for the
'.dinance in the fact of a storm of
protest from the ministers anil church
people of the city.
