» Chicago celebrated the homecoming of 1,500 men and officers of the headquarters detachment of the 161st artillery brigade and the 333rd heavy field artillery, Chicago’s own part of the Blackhawks division. The rest of the brigade — the 331st and 332nd light field artillery — which also trained at Camp Grant, will be coming home before long.
» A budget calling for municipal expenditures of approximately $10,000,000 in excess of the 1918 appropriation will be submitted to the City Council today by the Finance Committee. The 1919 budget submitted by the committee calls for appropriations of approximately $35,400,000. This includes salary increases amounting to $3,000,000. The work of the railway terminals committee is considered of such importance as to warrant an increase of $35,000.
