ing stricken, as compared with 341 the year before ;

the best available care to those stricken, regard- 
less of age, creed, color or race; and 

Whereas, the Cook County Chapter of the Na- 
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis will be 
called upon as never before to provide continuing 
care for those stricken until maximum recovery is 
assured in every case; and

cure for this great crippler, and proposes so to do 
until polio is rendered harmless; and 

Whereas, the National Foundation for Infantile 
Paralysis, spearhead of the ceaseless ■^ar against 
polio will, for the reasons set forth above, need

Congress Memorialized Not to Surrender Atom

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, The question of retaining or sharing 
the secret of the atom bomb is presently of para- 
mount concern to the American people; and 

Whereas, Every representative governing body 
should have a vital interest in the matter of de- 
termination as to whether or not the secret of the 
atom bomb be retained by the United States in 
the interest of world peace or shared with other 
nations ; and 

Whereas, History has repeatedly proved that 
sharing of military secrets, arms or materials 
by friendly nations during peace time and with- 
out proper debate or consideration has led to 
sad consequences during times of world unrest and 
war; and 

Whereas, Under our democratic form of gov- 
ernment the American people have chosen to speak 
either directly through the ballot or through its 
elected representatives after free and open debate; 
now therefore be it 

Resolved, That this City Council, representing 
some three and one-half million people, memorialize 
the Congress of the United States to immediately 
take such action as is necessary to prevent the 
surrender of the atom bomb secret at least until 
the approval of such a course is made through 
a direct ballot or by the Congress of the United 
States after free and open debate.

By Alderman Orlikoski (35th Ward) : 

Proposal for Allocation of Type C-4 Ship to Great 
Lakes Area Endorsed. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas_, for many years there has been a lack 
of adequate local steamboat passenger service in 
Chicago, and especially in recent years due to the 
fact that the recreational opportunities for the 
public have been seriously curtailed as result of the 
war effort, and 

Whereas^ for this and many other reasons, the 
citizens of Chicago have been denied the privilege 
and advantages offered in low-cost water trans- 
portation and have not had an opportunity to 
take advantage of the natural benefits of being 
the largest port city on the Great Lakes; and 

Whereas^ the Civic and business leaders of the 
City of Chicago, a Maritime City, have noted 
with a great deal of apprehension, the decline of 
the passenger steamboat traffic in and out of the 
port of Chicago, and have come to the conclu- 
sion that drastic steps must be undertaken in 
order to reestablish the interest and the imagina- 
tion of its people and the reestablishment of an 
awareness to the desirability of steamship traffic 
on the Great Lakes, and particularly on Lake 
Michigan; and 

Whereas^ as the result of the depression, the 
unusual economic conditions resulted in the bank- 
ruptcy of steamship lines which have for many 
years served the public, and 

Whereas, under the ship building program of 
the United States Maritime Commission there 
were constructed some 5,000 ocean-going ships 
which, since the cessation of hositilities are neces- 
sary to be transferred from Government owner- 
ship to operations by private interests; and 

Whereas, it would be a distinct advantage to 
the Great Lakes area if some means could be found 
whereby one of these ships could be diverted for 
use on the Great Lakes in an effort to reestablish 
local steamship passenger service and automobile 
ferry service on a modern and enlarged scale; and 

Whereas, it has come to our attention that the 
Wisconsin and Michigan Steamship Company has 
made application to the United States Maritime 
Commission for the purchase of one of the type 
C-4 ships to be known as the S. S. Chicago Clipper, 
for use on the Great Lakes with the specific intent 
to use the port of Chicago as an operating base; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved that it is the 
sense of this City Council that the acquisition of 
such a ship for the Great Lakes trade, and espe- 
cially for the building up of the potential steam- 
ship passenger and tourist traffic to and from 
the port of Chicago, is a most desirable ad- 
junct to the commercial facilities and that great 
public benefit will accrue from such venture; 

Be It Further Resolved that this City Council 
hereby places itself on record as urging the allo- 
cation of at least one of the type C-4 ships to 
the Great Lakes area, as above stated, and that 
all other Federal agencies having jurisdiction on 
the Illinois Waterway be enlisted to authorize 
the passage of said ship from the Gulf of Mexico 
to the Great Lakes; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That copies of this 
resolution be forwarded to the United States 
Maritime Commission, United States Senators 
from Illinois, and United States Representatives 
from districts within the City of Chicago. 



On motion of Alderman Orlikoski said proposed 
resolution was adopted by yeas and nays as follows:

By Alderman Cullerton (38th Ward): 

Board of Education Authorized to Erect Temporary 
Frame Buildings on Land Adjacent 
to Certain Vocational Schools. 

A proposed ordinance reading as follows: 

Whereas, Public Vocational and Trade School 
facilities are inadequate to provide for the residents 
of Chicago for Veterans of the recent war, who 
prior to the induction into the armed forces of the 
United States resided in the City of Chicago and 

Whereas, the demobilization of the greater part 
of the armed forces under the G. I. Bill of Rights 
has created an additional shortage of Vocational 
and Trade School facilities in the City which 
threatens to endanger the future welfare of re- 
turning veterans; now, therefore, 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. The Board of Education of the City 
of Chicago is authorized to have erected without 
permit on its own land temporary buildings of 
frame construction from Federal Works Agency 
under the amendment to the Lanham Act, S2085, 
to provide educational facilities for veterans of the 
recent war while the veterans attend Washburne 
Trade School, 1225 Sedgwick Street, Chicago and 
Manley Trade School, 2935 Polk Street, Chicago as 
students. 

Section 2. The authority hereby given to the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago is upon 
condition that said temporary buildings will be 
dismantled and removed within five years after 
their erection, and, in the event that the school 
fails or neglects to do so, the officer or officers of 
the City of Chicago designated by the City Coun- 
cil shall have the right to enter upon the land of 
said school and to dismantle and remove said build- 
ings and charge to and collect from the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago the cost of such 
work to reimburse the City for any money ex- 
pended therefor. 

Section 3. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage.

By Alderman Keenan (49th Ward) : 

Direction for Action to Compel Chicago Rapid 
Transit Co. to Provide New Coaches. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas on April 19, 1939 the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission ordered the Chicago Rapid 
Transit Company "to replace its all-wood and wood 
and steel reinforced or composite cars with all steel 
or metal cars within a period of approximately 
five years (5) years;" and 

Whereas it was then determined and so ordered 
in its report of that date that approximately one 
thousand (1,000) new cars of like capacity would 
be necessary to make the replacements; and 

Whereas the business of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit Company has greatly increased since that 
time; and 

Whereas The Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
has since that time increased its fare to twelve 
cents (12^) ; and 

Whereas the crowded conditions prevailing at all 
hours of the day, particularly during the rush 
hours, are a disgrace to our City; and 

Whereas even at the extreme limits of the city 
the coaches are dangerously overcrowded; and 

Whereas the use of wooden coaches is a grave 
menace to the safety of our citizens; and 

Whereas The Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
since the date April 19, 1939 has not provided even 
one new coach ;" and 

Whereas they can no longer plead poverty with 
a twenty per cent (20%) increase in fare and 
carrying more passengers than eight (8) years 
ago; and 

Whereas another tragedy such as the Granville 
Avenue wreck may occur at any time unless some- 
thing to remedy this situation is done immediately; 

Therefore Be It Resolved that the City of Chi- 
cago, through its Law Department through the 
Illinois Commerce Commission, the Chicago Transit 
Authority, and in any other way possible, do force 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company to provide new 
and adequate coaches for the safety and conveni- 
ence of our citizens.

from the metal of the sign or trough. Miniature 
sockets shall not be employed for outdoor work. 

58.1-15 Wiring) (a) Wire shall be of approved 
type not less than No. 14 B&S gauge in size. Where 
newly erected signs are connected to previously 
installed mains, the contractor connecting the sign 
will be held responsible for condition of these 
mains. Connection should not be made unless the 
mains referred to are of sufficient capacity, in good 
condition, and in compliance with the rules. If such 
is not the case, new mains should be installed. 
Mains feeding signs shall be calculated on the basis 
of full connected load, whether flashers are used 
or not, but in no case shall there be a capacity 
for less than ten watt lamps. Where more than 
one reading matter is overlaid on a single panel 
and only one reading matter is illuminated at one 
time the mains may be calculated on the basis of 
the maximum load at one time. Signs may be con- 
nected to interior lighting circuits (except circuits 
feeding show windows) provided the combined 
load on the circuit does not exceed 1,000 watts. 

(b) Wires shall be soldered to terminals of 
sockets and exposed parts of wires and terminals 
shall be treated to prevent corrosion. 

(c) Approved bushings shall be employed to 
protect wires, passing through walls or partitions 
of the sign structure.

stalled in rigid conduit or electrical metallic tubing 
which shall be made waterproof; provide, however, 
for swinging signs the conduit or electrical metallic 
tubing shall terminate at the level of the crane 
within three feet of the sign and flexible conduit 
used to complete the connection. The flexible con- 
duit shall have a drip loop. 

(e) Each sign shall be controlled by an exter- 
nally operable switch which will open all un- 
grounded conductors. When not within sight of the 
sign, the switch shall be capable of being locked 
in an open position. For all neon and gas tube signs 
an additional switch must be installed outside not 
more than two feet from the sign. The switch 
must be mounted in a weatherproof box or be of 
an approved weatherproof type. 

(f) Where a time switch is used to control a 
sign, a manually operable switch shall be installed 
ahead of the time switch, unless the time switch 
can be operated from the outside and indicates 
whether "off" or "on." 

(g) Cutouts and flashers (except thermal flash- 
ers) shall be placed in accessible boxes or cabinets 
constructed of metal of a thickness of not less than 
No. 16 U.S. standard gauge (0.063) except where

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY OFFICERS. 



Mayor Authorized to Extend Official Invitation for 
Holding of Olympic Games in Chicago in 1953, 
and to Appoint Promotion Committee. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted a 
proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas^ With the cessation of war, the Inter- 
national Olympic Games Committee will be resumed 
at Stockholm, Sweden, on June 14th of this year, 
at which time the International Olympic Com- 
mittee will meet for the purpose of selecting a 
site for the 1952 Olympic Games; and 

Whereas^ In spite of the fact that three other 
American cities, namely, Detroit, Minneapolis and 
Los Angeles, in addition to Helsinki, Finland and 
Athens, Greece, have already issued official invi- 
tations for the 1952 Olympics, sufficient time re- 
mains, according to sports authorities, for Chi- 
cago to secure these games if it is willing to 
spare the necessary time and effort to bring them 
here; and 

Whereas^ The last time the Olympic Games 
were held in the United States was in 1932 at Los 
Angeles, at which time crowds of more than 100,- 
000 persons repeatedly attended the track events; 
and 

Whereas, Chicago, by reason of its love of sport, 
its unrivalled accommodations at Soldier Field and 
elsewhere on the lake front, its long experience 
and unrivalled reputation for handling large 
crowds, its outstanding hotel, restaurant and 
amusement facilities, and its position as the 
nation's transportation center, would be an ideal 
host city for the 1952 Olympic Games; and 

Whereas, The holding of the 1952 Olympic 
Games in Chicago would prove an invaluable stimu- 
lus to public morale, civic pride, and our long 
tradition of sportsmanship, as well as bring to 
our city cultural and economic benefits of tre- 
mendous value; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago hereby authorizes 
Mayor Edward J. Kelly to extend the City of 
Chicago official invitation to the International 
Olympic Committee to hold the Olympic Games 
in Chicago in 1952 ; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Council 
hereby authorizes Mayor Kelly to appoint a com- 
mittee of 100 outstanding Chicago citizens — repre- 
sentative of our city's varied business, industrial, 
labor, cultural, religious, civic and sports interests 
— for the purpose of carrying on an aggressive 
campaign to raise the necessary funds, make 
the necessary arrangements, and in other ways 
promote Chicago's claims to selection as the 
Olympics host city for 1952. 

Committee consideration was dispensed with by 
unanimous consent, and on, motion of Alderman Orli- 



koski (seconded by Alderman Bowler and Alderman 
Keenan) the proposed resolution was adopted, by 
yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, DePriest, 
Moss, Francis J. Hogan, Bohling, Olin, DuBois, Pa- 
cini, Connelly, Hartnett, Michael P. Hogan, Wagner,

the remainder be paid for and financed in such a 
manner that there will remain in said renewal 
funds, subject to the further order of the court, 
an unobligated balance of at least $12,000,000, and

to in the preamble hereto and to the use of said 
reserved sum of $12,000,000 or of any part thereof

THE ANNUAL APPROPRIATION ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO

appropriations herein are made in accordance with the standard classification 
of accounts as provided in section 7-13 of the Municipal Code of Chicago. 
The Comptroller and heads of all departments and other agencies of the city 
government shall administer the amounts appropriated in this ordinance by 
standard accounts as specified by code numbers and letters, designations of 
which may be amended or altered by the Comptroller to suit the need of proper 
classification in accordance with the standard classification of accounts and with 
the official manual of the City of Chicago issued by the Department of Finance 
in which are specified the details of commodities, services, benefits and claims

Section 4. Where appropriations are made under Standard Accounts desig- 
nated by code letter "S" expenditures thereunder shall be accounted for under

purposes of operation and administration under the following Standard Ac- 
counts: C, F, G, H, J and L. 

Section 5. The appropriation herein of amounts for the payment of 
"liabilities," of "contract liabilities" or of "unpaid bills" shall not be construed 
as an approval of any such liabilities or bills, but shall be regarded only as an 
appropriation for the payment thereof when they have been found to be valid 
and legal obligations against the City of Chicago and have been properly 
vouchered and audited. 

Section 6. The appropriations herein made for salaries and wages shall be 
regarded as the maximum appropriations for the respective positions, the num- 
ber of positions specified and the length of time for which the incumbent of 
each position is to be employed. The wages herein fixed on a per diem basis

rate for skilled labor authorized by the city council are subject to the amount 
available therefor by appropriation herein for adjustments in such wage rates.

cess of the salary or wage to which the incumbent of such position is en- 
titled by grade, rank and seniority, the department head shall certify to 
the Civil Service Commission the nature of the special assignment and if 
the Civil Service Commission determines, by its approval of the pay roll, 
that such special assignment is immediately required without reclassification 
of the position the amount appropriated shall be paid to the incumbent per- 
forming the duties of the position with special assignment; otherwise the 
salary or wages of such incumbent shall be the amount established for po- 
sitions of the same class and grade, or rank according to seniority of service, 
without special assignment, and no additional compensation shall be paid to the 
incumbent of such postion by voucher or otherwise. Upon termination of the

becomes necessary to lay him off on account of lack of work or lack of funds. 
In case of any vacancy in any office or position herein appropriated for, the 
head of the department in which any such vacancy occurs shall not be required 
to fill such office or position if in his judgment and discretion there is no neces- 
sity therefor.

Proclamation 

Whereas, the National Conf erence of Christians

Whereas, all the wisdom of man's collective ex- 
perience points to this simple formula las the

week of February 16 to 23, 1947, as American 
Brotherhood Week in Chicago, and I do urge all 
the people of this city to join wholeheartedly in

Chicago Plan Commission's Brochure, "Woodlawn — 
A Study in Community Conservation". 

A communication reading as follows: 

Chicago Plan Commission 

January 15, 1947 

To the Honorable, Mayor Edward J. Kelly and the 
City Council of the City of Chicago, City Hall, 
Chicago 2, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to directions given to me 
by the Chicago Plan Commission, there is trans- 
mitted herewith a copy of the Commission's pub- 
lication "Woodlawn— A Study in Community Con- 
servation." 

This report has been prepared in collaboration 
with the Woodlawn Planning Committee of the 
Associated Clubs of Woodlawn which initiated the 
study approximately six years ago with the aid 
of a number of civic and governmental agencies. 
On December 11, 1939 the City of Chicago sup- 
ported the study by sponsoring an application for 
aid from the Works Progress Administration to 
conduct the necessary surveys. 

The Woodlawn Community was selected for a 
pilot study as it seemed to typify the residential 
areas of Chicago which are classified in the Land 
Use Survey as conservation areas. The purposes of 
this report are to analyze the problems common 
to most of these middle-aged residential areas and 
to propose a plan of action for community revital- 
ization and improvement. 

In Chicago there are 56 square miles (over one- 
third of the city's residential area) which are 
shown on the Comprehensive City Plan as con- 
servation areas suitable for continuing residential 
use. More than one-half of the people in Chicago 
live within these conservation areas. 

Fundamentally the plan for Woodlawn is de- 
signed to coordinate the activities of the City of 
Chicago and institutions, groups, and individuals 
into an effective program of public improvements 
and modernization of privately owned properties. 
The aim of the study is to encourage the re- 
habilitation of those parts of each community that 
are worth preserving and to improve their physical 
features in order that all such areas will regain 
much of their former economic value and attrac- 
tiveness. 

This report is transmitted from the Plan Com- 
mission with the recommendation that every de- 
partment of the city government, as well as the 
respective committees of the City Council, give it 
careful consideration and study in order that con- 
certed efforts be made to retain these established 



residential areas of Chicago as desirable places in 
which to live. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) H. Evert Kinkaid, 

Executive Director. 

Referred to the Committee on Planning. 



Vote Beconsidered (Ordinance Creating City Council 
Legislative Reference Bureau). 

The City Clerk transmitted a communication from

the vote by which the City Council on January 15, 
1947, passed the ordinance referred to in said com- 
munication, as is noted on pages 6886-6887 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings. 

The motion prevailed. 

On motion of Alderman Bowler said ordinance and

To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Finance having had under

City of Chicago ~ . 
Office of the City Comptroller 

January 15. 1947. 

Hon. James B. Bowler, 
Chairman, Committee on Finance. 

Dear Sir — We transmit for your information, 
copy of an opinion dated January 6, 1947, by the 
corporation counsel on the question of permitting 
concession stands in the City Hall. 

Reference is made to our letter of December 3, 
1946, regarding a resolution passed November 6, 
1946, by the city council for the allotment of space 
in public buildings for the Operation of concession 
stands by visually handicapped persons. 

Apparently the corporation counsel does not feel 
that permitting such stands would endanger the 
city's rights in the City Hall site. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) R. B. Upham, 

Comptroller.

Attention: J. F. P. 

Dear Sir — With your letter of December 11, 
1946 you transmitted copy of a resolution passed 
by the City Council on November 6, 1946 for the 
allotment of space in city owned buildings for oper- 
ation of concession stands by visually handicapped 
persons. The resolution was published in the Jour- 
nal of the Proceedings of the City Council of that 
date, page 6532, and declares it to be the official 
policy of the city government to encourage and 
promote the employment of blind persons in the 
operation of vending stands in municipal buildings

for tobacco products, wrapped confectionery, news- 
papers, periodicals, etc., under the supervision and 
direction of recognized agencies in charge of stand 
programs for the blind. 

The City of Chicago erected the City Hall under 
a lease from the County of Cook as owner of Court 
House Square. The lease was reduced to writing 
on August 28, 1872 pursuant to authority of the 
City Council passed August 5, 1872. A copy of 
the lease was transmitted with your letter of 
December 11, 1946. It provides, among other 
things, that if the City shall rent any portion of 
the City Hall site for any other purpose than is 
specified "then the said County shall have the right 
to resume possession thereof and in such case the 
said City shall forfeit all its rights therein and 
this contract shall be null and void, but no for- 
feiture shall be incurred by the use of the same for 
Supreme Court purposes, if the City should desire 
to so use the same". 

The question submitted for our consideration is 
whether permits for stands authorized by the reso- 
lution of November 6, 1946 and a certain fruit 
stand, newspaper stand, pay telephone stations and 
a milk vending truck now maintained in certain 
parts of the City Hall violate the provisions of the 
lease above referred to. 

Forfeitures are not favored by the law, espe- 
cially breach of covenant or condition subsequent, 
{Cooper V. Haas (1928) 332 111.., 561, 570; Powell 
v. Powell (1929) 335 111., 533); and it has been 
said that forfeitures are so odious that courts will 
resort to all reasonable methods of interpretation 
and proceeding for the purpose of avoiding them. 
(Knights Templars & Masons Life Indemnity Co. v. 
Vail (1902), 105 111. App. 331; Affd. 206 111. 404). 

Liberally construed, the maintenance of public 
telephone facilities, newspaper stands and other 
small vending stands for the convenience of the 
public having business at the City Hall fairly fall 
within the purposes and uses for which the City 
Hall site of Court House Square was leased to the 
City, i. e., for public offices and the administration 
of its government where the public may be ac- 
commodated. 

At any rate, we are quite confident that no for- 
feiture could be declared for such a technical viola- 
tion of the lease without notice of objection from 
the county authorities. (Storke v. Penn Mutual 
Life Ins. Co. (1946) 390 111. 619).

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas^ there are approximately four thou- 
sand taxicabs, licensed and unlicensed, operating in

inadequate and insufficient to satisfy the needs and 
requirements of the public; and 

Whereas, the City" Council has heretofore au- 
thorized the issuance of additional licenses and 
permits in excess of those provided for in an ordi- 
nance passed May 18, 1934, as amended; and 

Whereas, the Supreme Court of Illinois has on 
January 22, 1947 invalidated the issuance of such 
additional licenses and has thereby nullified said 
licenses heretofore issued and authorized to be 
issued to veterans of World War II ; and 

Whereas, Section 196A-2 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago authorizes the City Council by general 
ordinance to provide for taxicab licenses in excess 
of three thousand after a determination of the 
need thereof by a public hearing upon the question 
of public convenience and necessity held by the 
Public Vehicle License Commissioner; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the Public 
Vehicle License Commissioner be and he is hereby 
directed to continue with the public hearing imme- 
diately to determine the adequacy and sufficiency 
of the taxicab service in the City of Chicago and 
to determine whether public convenience and 
necessity require an increase in the number of 
authorized taxicab licenses, and to report his find- 
ings to the City Council at the next meeting of the 
Council; and 

Be It Further Resolved, that upon receipt of a 
report from said Public Vehicle License Commis- 
sioner finding that the taxicab service presently 
received by and rendered to the citizens of Chicago 
is inadequate and that the public convenience and 
necessity require the licensing of additional taxi- 
cabs, the Council shall promptly authorize an in- 
crease in the number of taxicab licenses from three 
thousand as presently limited by the ordinance of 
May 18, 1934, as amended ; 

And Be It Further Resolved, That the Corpora- 
tion Counsel be directed to draw the necessary and 
proper ordinances or amendments to bring about 
sufficient and adequate taxicab service for the 
people of the City of Chicago.
