Rehearing denied January 20, 1958. The defendant, city of Des Plaines, appeals directly to this court from a declaratory judgment of the circuit court of Cook
County declaring void the city's zoning ordinance classifying plaintiffs' property for residential use. Two cases were originally
filed by the separate plaintiffs, owners of adjacent and ajoining tracts of real estate. The cases were consolidated in the
trial court below and referred to a master in chancery for hearing. The master heard the evidence and reported his findings
in favor of the plaintiffs and recommended the entry of a judgment for plaintiffs, after overruling objections to his report.
Such objections stood as exceptions, were heard by the trial court, and were overruled. The master's report was approved,
and judgment entered in both cases in accord therewith.
