The measure provides a penally of not less than S25 or more than S100 for each violation, but each day of such violation constitutes a separate! offense. It was adopted in the form of an amendment to lhe previous smoke ordinance which had fiiitcil to remedy the evil. So ineffective, in fact, was this existing ordinance—passed in 1931 Dial llic past, winter was the smokiest in the city's history. Day after day a combination of dense smoke and fog hung over the area, often cutting vlsibiiily in the downtown district to little more than u half block. Muvnr l.ratb Drive H was only afler a scries of "blackouts" (hat civic and business leaders, impressed by the inadequacy of the existing smoke laws to prevent the accumulating blielit nf the sulphurous fumes. dcteiminecl to do something about the situation. Mayor Bernard P. Dicmann pledged his administration to lessen, if not abolish, the smoke evil and appointed the smoke elimination committee with James F. Ford as chairman. For .several weeks lilt: conuniltec heard testimony of engineers, geologists and other technical experts qualified to discuss the problem. At the conclusion of extensive hearings, the committee reported its findings to Ihc mayor. These findings were incorporated in the new smoke ordinance. I'onr Ft-iir Adtied Kxpcnse Considerable opposition lo the measure was aroused among coal dealers, large numbers of the poor- pr classes of .the population who felt they would be cut oft from the use of cheap but highly volatile Southern Illinois bituminous coal, along wilh mining communi- lic.s of Southern Illinois which feared curtailment of the chief market for soft coal, on which they depend. Many of these mining towns threatened a boycott of St. Louis products if the proposal al- Icclcd them adversely. Tlie opposition was overcome, however, by Hie combined pressure of political, business nnd some religious groups of Ihc city. Bui even then a provision lo exclude the powerful Terminal Railroad Association and its proprietary roads from compliance with the ordinance was placed into Ihc measure when il came lo a vole and was noliccd only nflcr it had been BUY Tire.sfone' STANDARD TIRES E Mir mini ire CdiUriniilaliui; Ihc locnllDn ol plnnts In (he '1't'iinejisec Viilley .ti'ii (> J.
