(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Corporation Counsel Samuel A. Ettelson has been named Acting Mayor of Chicago in the absence of Mayor William Hale Thompson, who is suffering from ill health. Mr. Ettelson is to be in power until after Labor Day, at which time it is expected that Mayor Thompson will be able to resume his duties.

This is the first time in the history of the city that a Jew has been at its head.
