Whereas, The Health Educational Council of 
Chicago has cooperated with this national move- 
ment for the past 25 years by organizing an intense 
educational program in conjunction with the na-

Whereas, health is the basic foundation upon 
which individual human happiness and collective 
human well-being depend ; and

Negro Americans serve not only our Negro citizens 
but all citizens, since it is to the advantage of all 
to raise the general health level ; 

Now, therefore, I Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week of 
March 30 to April 6, 1947 as Negro Health Week 
in Chicago, and I do urge everyone to cooperate 
with The Health Educational Council in its pro- 
grams planned for this week.

Whereas, the citizens of Chicago are desirous of 
fostering any civic activity designed to further 
improve the cooperative relations between our 
people ; 

Now, therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the

one, do hereby proclaim the interim between April

Pan-American Week in Chicago" and "Pan-American 
Day". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, in a world that is daily shrinking in 
distances, all the countries of the American conti- 
nent are in the strictest sense close neighbors ; and 

Whereas, the interests of all the American Re- 
publics are closely identified, one with another; and 

Whereas, the* future of all countries of the west- 
ern hemisphere is inextricably bound together, and 
therefore a mutual understanding and respect for 
each other's problems and activities and achieve- 
ments is most urgently desired ; and 

Whereas, there is each year a national celebra- 
tion of Pan American Week to aid in further 
cementing the friendship of all the American 
countries ; 

Now, therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week of 
April 13 to 19, 1947, as Pan American Week in 
Chicago, with April 14 being observed as Pan 
American Day, and I earnestly suggest to schools 
and civic organizations and clubs of all sorts that 
Pan American Day be celebrated in an appropriate 
manner, to call public attention to the history and 
cultures and achievements of our South American 
neighbors, to the end that increased knowledge and 
understanding will create deeper friendships, and 
further demonstrate the Uniited States' desire to 
be a good neighbor. 

Dated this 8th day of April, A. D. 1947. 

(Signed) Edward J, Kelly, 

Mayor.

"Chicago Public Library Week". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library was estab- 
lished by law and began to serve the city on Janu- 
ary 1, 1873, and is, therefore, now preparing to 
celebrate its Seventy-Fifth Anniversary on January 
1, 1948, as well as the Fiftieth Anniversary of the 
occupancy of the present Library Building, first 
opened on October 11, 1897; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library is now one 
of the largest institutions of its kind in the country, 
offering to the citizens of Chicago, through its 
sixty branches, a free and unlimited book service 
which lends more than ten million books a year to 
nearly 700,000 cardholders; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library is con- 
stantly seeking to expand its services and to en- 
large the circle of its patrons so that all citizens 
of Chicago may know, use and benefit by their 
Public Library; and 

Whereas, to that end it is important that public 
attention should be occasionally directed to the 
Library and to the opportunities for the free use 
of its books, for education, recreation, and inspira- 
tion which its large resources and ample facilities 
present. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim and desig- 
nate the week of May 3 to 10, 1947, as Chicago 
Public Library Week, and I urge that our citizens 
avail themselves of the opportunities afforded dur- 
ing that week, to visit the Public Library and its 
Branches and thus to become familiar with and 
confirm their faith in one of the greatest of our 
public institutions. 

Dated this 13th day of March, A. D., 1947, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

Hon. Martin H. Kennelly Assumes Office of Mayor 
and Takes Chair.

the office of Mayor of the City of Chicago, thereupon 
took office. The gavel was thereupon turned over to 
him by Honorable Edward J. Kelly, retiring mayor, 
and Mayor Kennelly took the Chair. 

After extending best wishes to the retiring mayor 
for health and happiness, Honorable Martin H. Ken- 
nelly, Mayor, addressed the City Council as follows: 

Mayor Harrison— Mayor Kelly— Members of the 
City Council— Honored Guests— Fellow Chi- 

CAGOANS : 

Just a few moments ago I was a private citizen. 
Now I am a public official. 

During the period since I first accepted the nomi- 
nation of my party— and until this moment— I 
spoke as a private citizen. It was as an individual 
interested in his city and its welfare and progress, 
that I presented in some detail my plans and hopes 
for a Greater Chicago. 

You have just witnessed my taking the oath of 
■ office as Mayor of Chicago. I raised my right hand 
and swore I would do my duty. 

It is that oath of office which marks the ^ffer- 
ence between a private citizen and a public official. 
It signifies the acceptance of a public trust with a 
solemn promise to be true to that trust. 

It is now my obligation to try to accomplish and 
bring to reality those things of which I spoke dur- 
ing the campaign— the improvements so necessary 
for Chicago's future progress. 

With the unselfish cooperation and willing help 
of all the members of the City Council— working 
together we will consummate those objectives. 

I think of this, our first meeting together, as the 
beginning of a new era in Chicago's life, and I know 
that all of you share with me the determination to 
measure up to our responsibilities and make the 
most of the unequalled opportunities for advance- 
ment that are open to our city. 

Several members of the City Council have been 
honored by the citizens of their wards for many, 
. many years. For other members, this is their first 
meeting, as it is mine. But for all of us, this 
inaugural session of the new City Council is the 
beginning of our trust, and of our obligation to 
make Chicago better and greater. 

We must approach the problems of this great city 
together, with courage and high purpose. 

Our first concern must be Chicago's progress— 
an objective which must exclude partisan politics. 



Let our record for the public good be our only 
politics. In that way we will bring credit upon our 
city and the people who have honored us. 

Chicago is one of the great cities in the world. 

We have a solid foundation upon which to build. 

It is not my purpose tonight to present to you 
the specific program and the many urgent problems 
of the city which confront us. 

There is housing. One of our first duties is to 
get large-scale home construction started in Chi- 
cago The desperate straits of so many of our people 
for living space is sufficient stimulus for immediate 
action. 

Our schools must be made the best in the nation 
and must be kept entirely free from politics. 

We must have good local transportation which 
will provide safe, attractive, convenient, and swift 
modern service. More subways are also essential. 

We urgently need a city-wide system of super- 
highways to relieve traffic congestion on our over- 
loaded street system and to provide convenient 
access to all sections of the city. 

Our streets and alleys must be kept clean. They 
must be improved and better lighted, and our sani- 
tary and sanitation facilities must be extended. 
Good municipal housekeeping is a basic obUgation 
of good municipal government. 

Protection and inspection services— police, fire, 
and health— must be intensified— particularly in 
the crowded areas of our city. All these depart- 
ments are under-manned and should have additional 
modern equipment. 

The intensified stimulation of neighborhood and 
community spirit especially calls for our immediate 
action. 

The time for speechmaking on these vital prob- 
lems is past. Now we must have orderly action. 
The groundwork has already been laid by the pres- 
ent administration for many of the major improve- 
ments and, of course, each previous administration 
in Chicago's history has made its own contributions 
to our city. It is such teamwork— public officials 
doing their duty and working together with the 
people— which makes a city great. That is what 
makes a country great. 

Let us always remember that we represent all 
sections of Chicago— all creeds and all races. 

Each Alderman, of course, is the spokesman for 
the people in his own ward, but he also represents, 
together with his colleagues, all the people of 
Chicago. 

We are members of a team, each having a par- 
ticular part to play, but all coordinating our efforts 
for the main objective— a greater Chicago. 

There undoubtedly will be many times when it 
will be necessary to submerge our personal hopes 
and ambitions for the common good. How willingly 
—and effectively— we do this for the good of Chi- 
cago will give a definite indication of our stature 
as public officials. 

War brought responsibilities to all of us at home 
and particularly to the men and women in our 
fighting forces. We all patriotically accepted what- 
ever tasks were imposed upon us, as necessary 
duties of citizenship. 

The coming of peace has brought new responsi- 
bilities particularly to us, the leaders selected by 
the people to head our city government. 

We cannot fail. 

I am sure that, working together with charity 
and tolerance— with consideration and full under- 
standing of the need for our City's moral, material

and spiritual advancement, we will — with God's 
help — meet our responsibilities. 

The following words from the pen of Edgar Guest 
eloquently express the thought I would like to leave 
with you: 

"If freedom shall new splendors reach. 
And not be dragged into the dust. 
This to our children we must teach — that 
Public Service is a trust." 



Time Fixed for Next Succeeding Regular Meeting. 

By unanimous consent Alderman Lancaster there- 
upon presented a proposed ordinance reading as fol- 
lows: 

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

The City Clerk transmitted a communication ad- 
dressed to the City Council under date of March 25, 
1947 from Henry J. Wieland, Superintendent of Com- 
pensation, reading as follows : 

"I submit herewith an ordinance repeahng an 
ordinance to Benjamin Moore and Company passed 
June 18, 1946, authorizing the construction of a 



railroad switch track and loading platform in W. 
Kinzie Street between N. Halsted and N. Peoria 
Streets. Bond and acceptance was filed with the 
City Clerk and the annual compensation of $1240.00 
paid August 6, 1946, for the one-year period begin- 
ning June 18, 1946. 

Owing to injunction proceedings instituted by 
the Division Lead Company the track and platform 
were never constructed. A new ordinance to Ben- 
jamin Moore and Company and the Division Lead 
Company was passed November 26, 1946, as amend- 
ed January 10, 1947, for the construction of a 
longer track and two platforms serving both com- 
panies in which the annual compensation was fixed 
at $1524.00. This ordinance was accepted and the 
first year's compensation paid to the City on 
March 24, 1947."

An Ordinance

Whereas, the City of Chicago has a population 
of five hundred thousand or more and owns and 
operates its water-v/orks system and under Section 
22-26 to Section 22-29, inclusive, of the Revised 
Cities and Villages Act, approved August 15, 1941, 
as amended, the City of Chicago has authority to 
pay for improving and extending such water-works 
system by issuance and sale of certificates of in- 
debtedness of said City payable solely from the 
revenue derived from the operation thereof to the 
amount of $63,000,000 during the eighteen year

such certificates of indebtedness have been author- 
ized and issued during said period up to the date 
of the adoption of this ordinance in the amount of 
$35,400,000.00, and said water-works system pres- 
ently is in need of additional improvement and 
extension, the cost whereof will not be less than 
$4,000,000, and the revenues derived therefrom are 
sufficient to meet all maintenance and operation 
charges and to pay said certificates of indebtedness 
and all other obligations of said City by their 
terms payable therefrom; Now, Therefore, 

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

Section 1. For the purpose of improving and 
extending the water-works system of the City of 
Chicago as hereinafter particularly described, the 
Mayor, City Comptroller and City Clerk are hereby 
authorized in accordance with the provisions of 
Section 22-26 to Section 22-29, inclusive, of the 
Revised Cities and Villages Act, approved August 
15, 1941, as amended, to execute and issue, in the 
name of and on behalf of the City of Chicago, 
Water-Works System Certificates of Indebtedness 
in the principal amount of Four Million Dollars 
($4,000,000). 

These certificates of indebtedness shall be dated 
as of May 15, 1947, be numbered from 1 to 4000, 
inclusive, of the denomination of $1,000, and bear 
interest at the rate of two and one-quarter per cent 
per annum (unless such certificates are sold bear- 
ing a less rate of interest as provided by Section 3 
of this ordinance) payable November 15, 1947, and 
semi-annually thereafter on May 15, and November 
15, of each year until paid, which interest until 
maturity of the certificates shall be evidenced by in- 
terest coupons attached thereto bearing the fac- 
simile signatures of the Mayor and City Comptrol- 
ler. Both principal of and interest upon these cer- 
tificates of indebtedness shall be payable at the

option of the holder. These certificates of indebted- 
ness shall be signed by the Mayor and City Comp- 
troller, sealed with the corporate seal thereof and

1961 and $1,500,000 on May 15, of each of the years

These certificates of indebtedness shall not con- 
stitute an indebtedness of the City of Chicago with-

provision or limitation and each certificate shall 
contain a statement to that effect. 

Each of these certificates of indebtedness shall 
be subject to registration as to principal in the 
name of the owner on the books of the City Comp- 
troller, such registration being noted upon each 
certificate so registered and after such registration 
payment of the principal thereof shall be made only

and the principal of any certificate so transferred 
and registered to bearer shall thereupon be and 
become payable to bearer in like manner as if such 
certificate had not been registered. Registration of

negotiability of the coupons thereto attached by 
delivery merely. 

Section 2. The certificates of indebtedness, inter- 
est coupons to be thereto attached and the provi- 
sion for registration shall be substantially in the

acts, conditions and things required to be done pre- 
cedent to and in the issuance of this certificate of 
indebtedness have been done, have happened and 
have been performed in regular and due form of 
law, and that provision has been made for deposit- 
ing in said Water Fund the entire revenue received 
from the operation of said water-works system to 
be applied in the manner as hereinabove set forth. 

This certificate of indebtedness is subject to reg- 
istration as to principal in the name of the owner 
on the books of the City Comptroller of the City of 
Chicago, such registration to be evidenced by no- 



tation of said Comptroller on the back hereof, and 
after such registration no transfer hereof except 
upon such books and similarly noted hereon shall 
be valid unless the last registration shall have 
been to bearer. Registration hereof shall not affect 
the negotiability of the interest coupons hereto at- 
tached which shall continue negotiable by delivery 
merely. 

In Testimony Whereof, pursuant to authority of 
the City Council, the Mayor and Comptroller of the 
City of Chicago, have signed these presents and 
have caused the corporate seal, attested by the 
City Clerk, to be hereunto affixed, and have caused

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's rec- 
ommendation was concurred in. 

The following are the communication and copy of 
opinion referred to in the foregoing committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

April 24, 1947. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The Appellate Court on April 21, 
1947 confirmed a judgment rendered by Judge John 
M. Tuohy of the Superior Court in favor of the 
city in the case of Herlihy Mid-Continent Company 
V. City of Chicago, Appellate Court No. 43793. A 
copy of the opinion is attached hereto for your 
consideration. 

The Herlihy Mid-Continent Company had the first 
contract issued by the city for the construction of 
the State street subway in that area between the 
Chicago River and Bellevue Place. During the per- 
formance of the contract Mr. Ralph Burke, the then 
City Engineer in charge of subway construction 
modified the plan of procedure adopted by the con- 
tractor in the mining and concreting, so that the 
amount of open tunnel at any one time was re-

duced in the interests of safety to the men engaged 
therein and the structures along the route. 

The contractor claimed that by reason of the 
changed procedure, it was delayed in the comple- 
tion of the contract from August 25, 1939, the 
completion date under the contract to November 8, 
1939, the actual completion date. The contractor 
sued the city to recover the sum of $500,250.00 
damages alleged to have been sustained by reason 
of the delay. Upon the trial, at the conclusion of 
plaintiff's evidence the city made a motion for a 
finding in its favor, and the court after hearing 
extensive arguments thereon consuming two court 
days, sustained the city's motion and entered judg- 
ment for the city. The contract provided that the 
City Engineer was empowered to "decide every 
question of an engineering character which may 
arise relative to the execution of the work under 
this contract on the part of the contractor and his 
decision will be final and conclusive on both par- 
ties". The trial court held this provision to be valid 
as a matter of law and that the plaintiff failed to 
"show such a situation as to subject the decision of 
the engineer to the revisory power of the court". 

Upon the appeal, the plaintiff abandoned all 
claims except in the amount of $43,904.80 which 
it claimed for cost of maintenance during the delay 
in performance of the contract. 

The Appellate Court in affirming the judgment, 
held that the evidence established the fact that the 
City Engineer acted in good faith "to insure greater 
security and safety for property and persons in- 
volved in the construction" and that the plaintiff, 
having failed to obtain a certificate from the City 
Engineer that it was entitled to the compensation 
claimed, or that the delay was due to the fault of 
the city "failed to meet the condition precedent to 
justify its demand for additional payment or its 
right to maintain the action".

Herlihy Mid-Continent Company, 

Appellant, 



Appeal from 
Superior 
Court, 
Cook County. 



City of Chicago, a Municipal Cor- 
poration, Appellee. 

Mr. Justice Feinberg delivered the opinion of the 
court. 

Plaintiff brought an action in the Superior court 
of Cook county to recover upon a written contract 
between the parties, dated December 10, 1938, for 
the construction in North State street of a section 
of the Chicago subway. Two separate claims were 
made in the complaint, one of which has been 
abandoned by plaintiff upon this appeal, the other 
in the total sum of $43,904.80, which it seeks to 
recover under Article 25 of the contract. A trial 
without a jury resulted in a judgment for defend- 
ant, from which plaintiff prosecutes this appeal. 

It is the theory of plaintiff that under the contract 
the work was to begin not later than December 17, 
1938, and was to be completed within 250 calendar 
days thereafter, or by August 25, 1939; that the 
work was delayed until November 8, 1939, on ac- 
count of an act of delay of the City, and that under 



Article 25 of the contract plaintiff is entitled to 
compensation to cover the expenses of the con- 
tractor for the "proper maintenance" of the work 
and of the plant, materials and equipment of the 
contractor during or on account of the delay or 
delays caused by the City. 

It is the theory of the defendant that the delay 
was not due to any fault of the City; that the or- 
dered change in the procedure of construction was 
justified and authorized by the contract; that the 
necessity for such change of procedure was to be 
determined by the engineer, and his determination 
shall be final and conclusive on the parties ; that in 
no event is plaintiff entitled to recover because of 
the provision in the same Article 25 of the contract, 
which reads: "* * * The Commissioner shall deter- 
mine the number of days, if any, that the Con- 
tractor has been so delayed and the amount of such 
extra costs to the Contractor due to said delay or 
delays and the amount of extra compensation to be 
paid to the Contractor therefor and his decision 
shall be final and binding * * *" ; that again in 
Article 25 it is provided : "* * * that the Engineer 
shall in all cases decide every question of an en- 
gineering character which may arise relative to the 
execution of the work under this contract on the 
part of the said Contractor, and his decision shall 
be final and conclusive on both parties hereto; 
and such decision, in case any question may arise, 
shall be a condition precedent to the right of said 
Contractor to receive any money or compensation 
for anything done or furnished under this con- 
tract"; that under this latter provision it was a 
condition precedent that plaintiff obtain a decision 
and certificate from the engineer that the City had 
caused the delay, and that plaintiff was entitled to 
compensation for maintenance under the provisions 
of the contract. Not having obtained such a deci- 
sion or certificate from the engineer as a condition 
precedent, plaintiff was not entitled to demand pay- 
ment or maintain this action. 

It appears from the evidence, and it is admitted 
by plaintiff on this appeal, that the engineer, when 
he ordered the change in the procedure of construc- 
tion, acted in good faith to insure greater security 
and safety for property and persons involved in the 
construction, and to prevent change of the move- 
ment of the earth, which occurred when the con- 
struction progressed. In the light of this admission, 
and the requirement under the contract that plain- 
tiff obtain a certificate from the engineer that it 
was entitled to the compensation claimed, or that 
the delay was due to the fault of the City, the 
plaintiff failed to meet the condition precedent to 
justify its demand for additional payment or its 
right to maintain the action, as contended for by 
defendant. The provision in this contract with re- 
gard to the necessity of complying with the condi- 
tion precedent is not unlike the cases of construc- 
tion contracts, which require the issuance of a 
certificate by the architect before the contractor is 
entitled to payment. 

In Weld V. First National Bank, 255 111. 43, at 
page 47, it is said: "The parties having agreed 
that the architect should decide certain questions, 
his certificate concerning matters referred to his 
decision was admissible in evidence, and his certifi- 
cate that there was an amount due was a condition 
precedent to the right to demand payment and 
could only be attacked for fraud or mistake." 

It is not claimed here that the engineer for de- 
fendant, through fraud or mistake, refused or 
failed to issue a certificate to satisfy the condition 
precedent, but on the contrary, it is admitted by 
plaintiff that the engineer acted in good faith. The 
plaintiff having failed to meet the condition prece- 



May 9, 1947 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

dent, required under this contract, as pointed out, 
the trial court was correct in denying plaintiff's 
claim and entering judgment for defendant. 

Plaintiff relies upon Herlihy Mid-Continent Com- 
pany V. Sanitary District, 390 111. 160, as holding 
that the provisions of this contract imposing the 
condition precedent are not binding. A reading of 
the case will disclose no such holding, but the com- 
pensation allowed in the case cited was upon the 
ground of the arbitrary and unjustified refusal on 
the part of the Sanitary District to issue the proper 
certificates for payment, which caused a suspension 
of work. The refusal to make payments to the con- 
tractor was due entirely to the lack of funds of the 
Sanitary District. 

The judgment of the Superior court is affirmed. 

Judgment Affirmed. 

O'Connor, P. J., and Niemeyer, J., concur.

Whereas, It is the obhgation of the City Council 
of the City of Chicago to take all measures within 
its power to assist in the alleviation of this critical 
situation endangering the health and happiness of 
many of its citizens, and 

Whereas, The housing crisis can only be ended 
by the combined efforts of all available resources, 
including private builders, the city, state, and fed- 
eral governments working together to produce the 
maximum number of new housing facilities for peo- 
ple at all income levels, and

Chicago express itself as favoring the immediate 
enactment of legislation by the General Assembly of 
Illinois for the following purposes : 

(1) Appropriation of funds for the acquisition of 
land, either vacant or blighted, by a local 
public agency now existent or hereafter 
created, for resale or lease to private build- 
ers or non-profit corporations, which may be 
at less than acquisition cost. 

(2) Appropriation of funds for the construction 
by a public agency of "disaster" housing 
facilities on vacant land to be made available 
to distressed veterans, persons burned out of 
their homes, and those being displaced be- 
cause of redevelopment programs. 

(3) Authorization to state and local govern- 
mental agencies to acquire lands for housing 
purposes through a "declaration of taking" 
which would speed up condemnation pro- 
ceedings.

ter war against countries who thrived upon the 
development of racial and religious hatreds, and 

Whereas, such acts of vandalism and irreverence 
reflect upon all of the people of the City of Chi- 
cago and are a refutation of the principles of un- 
derstanding, justice and equality on which this 
country was founded and for which we have so 
recently waged a bitter and costly war, be it

Resolved, that the City Council of the City of 
Chicago express its mortification that such dese- 
crations have occurred, and hereby publicly express 
its sympathy to the families whose ancestral graves 
were so destroyed; be it 

Further Resolved, that the City Council of the 
City of Chicago direct that the Police Department 
and Mayor's Commission on Human Relations re- 
port to the Council within 30 days the results of 
their investigations of this tragic desecration, and 
that these agencies intensify the development of a 
general program of education and understanding

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the dire shortage of homes in Chicago 
has turned the attention of all our citizens to the 
plans and problems of home building ; and 

Whereas, the greatness of any city is challenged 
by its failure to provide decent living accommoda- 
tions for its people ; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Metropolitan Home Build- 
ers Association is sponsoring the first postwar 
Chicagoland Home Show, to provide the people of 
this city with an opportunity to inspect extensive 
home exhibits; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
of May 17 to 25, 1947, as Chicago Home Week,

Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the right and privilege of a democratic 
people to determine for themselves, individually, 
what part they shall take in their country's affairs, 
is inalienable; and, 

Whereas, it is also one of the virtues of our 
American system that whatever is done for the 
national good finds support in city, town, and ham- 
let, throughout the land; and 

Whereas, the new Civilian Naval Reserve, dedi- 
cated to the building of better citizens and the pro- 
tection of this nation's costly investment in world 
peace, is a definite instrument for the good of all; 
and . 

Whereas, the Civilian Naval Reserve offers fram- 
ing and educational opportunities to our j^oung peo- 
ple, in addition to the voluntary role they assume 
with the Navy in peacetime. 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
of May 18 to May 25, 1947, as Naval Reserve Week

appropriate exercises be held for the purpose of 
impressing upon all citizens the privileges of their

the nation because its numerous citizens of foreign 
birth have shown loyalty and fidelity to their new

native and foreign-born, work as one people; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Herald-American has 
planned a patriotic ceremony to mark "I Am An
