Contents
  • Iron in the bloodlines : the Dilworths and the Woods
  • A gilded youth begins in gloom : black smoke, white beaches
  • Over there : the maximum of action in the minimum of time
  • Over here : pulchritude, Prohibition, and the innocent little sphere
  • The two William Wardens : some good men flatter us, but it's only for our money
  • Philadelphia lawyers men of learning, ability, and eloquence
  • Corrupt and discontented : grafters, gamblers, and goons
  • Unholy Moses : Old Man Annenberg : an attractive and amusing fellow with an absolutely vicious temper
  • Pivot point : a new wife, a new firm, a new life
  • Back at war, back at home : on Guadalcanal-- and off the wagon
  • The machine shivers : graft, suicide, and the fat sultan
  • The reformers arrive : born rich, reared gently, they turned out hard as nails
  • Thrust and parry : one of natures noblemen in the DA's office
  • Running for mayor : the last of the bare-knuckled aristocrats
  • Mayor Dilworth : staid old Philly, recapturing the spirit of its precocious youth
  • The transparent mayor : potholes and penmanship
  • Philadelphia black and white : the white noose and the problem of the color line
  • Sick transit : one gauge of a city's health is its mobility
  • Reviving Society Hill : the heart and soul of the colonial city
  • Dilworth for governor : Red China and the Blanc slate
  • Retaking City Hall : glorious victory, then egregious embarrassment
  • One last race : Little Lord Fauntleroy with a bucket of whitewash
  • Sensation at the School Board : an influx of idealists, smart as hell, and absolutely fearless
  • The betterment of the people.
