Objections Are Made
Against Renewal of
Rescue Home License
A petition, objecting to the re-jstab-Ishment
of the Tinley Rescue home at
Fourth and Bancroft has been cent to
the city council and is now in the hands
of the legal department Objections are
made, by Judge Howard Kennedy. Dr. E.
Holovtchiner, Dr. J. A. Williams, William
H. Hatteroth and fifty others.
One of the reasons for objecting to the
"home" advanced by the peitioners is
that in the past it "received unfavorable
comment and created notoriety." Also,
the Douglas County Detantlon home is
within one block of the site and too many
institutions of such nature are being
grouped near Fourth and Bancroft.
The petitions sets forth that the value
of property is decreased by having this
borne to near, improvement are re
tarded and the neighborhood is made undesirable.
Another reason for the objection Is that
there were disagreeable sights in connec
tion with the operation of. such an insti
tution." It is not "conducive to good
morals of those residing near or rasping
by the institution." For these reasons
the petitions request that the. license be
withheld. The council will consider the
case when the city attorney brings in a
