Foreword by the Authors The sections of this article, substantially in their present form, were contained in the Code of Civil Procedure under Title II of Chapter 17 and were known as sections 2231 to 2265-a inclusive. When the Civil Practice Act was passed in 1920 1 the Code of Civil Procedure was repealed,” the repeal being effective April 15, 1921.3 The provisions of the Code relating to summary proceedings were incorporated in the Justice Court Act 4 and were designated Article 17, sections 379 to 415, inclusive. The above Article 83 was added to the Civil Practice Act by Laws of 1921, Chapter 199, section 15. This same statute . postponed the operative effect of the Civil Practice Act from April 15, 1921, to October 1, 1921, by an amendment to section 1578 5e of the Civil Practice Act. The provisions relating to this subject in the Justice Court Act were repealed.
