Chicajo Getting Ready CHICAGO, Nov. 11 (UP)—Beer \\fs; the wcrd of the hour in Chi- •'cagb-today as officials and business interests rushed preparations for possible modification of 'the prohibition law. Aldermen visioned the city's financial crisis being drowned in schooners of the amber beverage. Brewery slocks spurted on the local exchange. Sudden interest developed in barley on the Chicago board of trade.
