A number of boys last Saturday night, with more energy than forethought, stretched a rope across Kline street, causing an accident which might have been serious. The boys attached one end of the rope to the flag pole, which stands in the yard of the Logan School and the other end to a tree standing on the opposite side of the street. Mr. and Mrs. Otto Butz, 627 Sheridan road, Winnetka, accompanied by their son, T. C. Butz of Highland Park, were driving home from Chicago about midnight. Their car struck the rope, breaking the wind shield and at the same time breaking the steel flagpole about twenty feet above the ground. That no one in the car was injured is due to the fact that they were driving along very slowly at the time of the accident. The names of the boys are not known.
