LANDLORDS HANDED A -LEMON
Chicago Court Roles Agralnat the Ex
clusion of Children . from
Chicago children have been given the
right to live in any flat, apartment house
or dwelling which they and their parents
desire to oooupy, and they can stay just as
long aa their fathers pay the rent. The
landlord cannot longer tell the man of un
limited family and limited means to go to
the suburbs and build himself a house if he
insists on providing a roof for his sons and
The state law, which landlords and their
attorneys had laughed at, declaring it un
constitutional and class legislation to pro
hibit their turning away tenants with chil
dren, was upheld as constitutional by Muni
cipal Judge Hlmes, and If the decision
stands unreversed In the higher courts Chi
cago tenants, through their spokesman,
RoMa R. Longenecker, say they have estab
lished an Important means by which many
tl Ings, from reasonable periods for re
papering the rooms to proper" degrees of
heat In aero weather, may be regulated
"All the lawyers laughed at me and said
of course the law was unconstitutional, but
I went ahead and took a chance," said At
torney Longenecker. The caee was brought
on Mr. Longenecker's complaint that W.
S. Boyleston, on assuming control of the
flats at 611 East Sixteenth street, had re
fused to renew the Longenecker lease, de
claring; that he did not care to rent to
families with children. As Mr. Longe
necker has a son 6 years old and a daugh
ter aged S, he saw the point, but Instead
of submitting he went to the courts.
"It Is the first case that has been brought
up under this law, and unless the supreme
court reverses It It will mean serious conse
quences for any landlord who refuses to
rent hla flats to families with children,"
commented Mr. Longenecker. "Judge Hlmes
Is to be congratulated on upholding tho
Judge Hlmes In the opinion declared that
children have as much right to protection
as the ggme of the state, and the game
laws have been universally upheld. Power
placed in the hands of landlords to drive
large families to hotels or dwelling houses,
both of which are beyond the purses of
the majority, tends to encourage race sui
cide, he hinted. Any law that wilt make
for the comfort, aafety and welfare of the
community, he declared. Is well within the
police powers of the state.
"In the exercise of this," he aald, "the
general assembly may prohibit all thlnns
