Arturo Ui has reached the climax of his campaign to take over Chicago
START: Some fifteen years ago, when I was only a humble, unemployed son of the Bronx; when following the call of destiny I sallied forth with only seven staunch men to brave the WIndy City I wss inspired by an iron will to create peace in the vegetable trade.
END: And other towns where vegetables are traded! Philadelphia! Columbus! Charleston! And New York! They all demand protection! And no ‘Phooey!’ No ‘That’s not nice!’ will stop Arturo Ui!
