It is thought likely many of the alder men may take the ordinance seriously and possibly pass it.

In speaking of his anti-football or dinance Alderman Plotke said: "Why do I introduce it? Because it is an in human game—a game that should hava been stopped long ago. Somebody gets hurt badly every time a football gume is played and many have been killed. It is 40 times worse than prize fighting. It teaches school children to be brutal. Every little boy in the city gets out on a vacant lot and fights and swears just like the older boys do playing football. The game should not be tolerated in Chicago." NEW \UKON COMPETITOR.
