Section 7 of t h e ordinance, as amended September 15, 1919, does not permit the use of t he sidewalks for a n y purpose or for display of merchand ise. It means, therefore, t h a t in accord- ance with the t e r m s of the ordinance t h e Board of Public W o r k s shall

enforce th e violation thereof. Roscoe O. Bonisteel,
