THE VICE CLEAN-UP-GOES ON
Vice is Having a tough time of
it in Chicago nowadays some
skinds of vice.
For awhile there was a general
raid on saloonkeepers, garnblers
and prostitutes. But it didn't stop
There is a slight indication that
even newspaper vice may be
cleaned up, too just a little bit.
The Tribune, which loves to
call itself the greatest newspaper
in the world, made a first-page
announcement today which indi
cates that it is going out of part
nership with the loan sharks.
The announcement is as fol
lows : '
"After a thorough investiga
tion The Tribune has decided to
eliminate "Salary loan" advertis
ing from its columns. Many of
these advertisements have been
those of reputable concerns, but
some, The Tribune has learned,
"have been inserted "by loan sharks.
As it is impossible to make an in
vestigation of each advertisement
before publication, The Tribune
will refuse to accept any adver
tising of this character. It is the
only way by which its patrons
can be protected."
No doubt it cost The Tribune
much financial pain to let go of its
'share of the profit in the loan
shark game," but we ought td be
thankful for even this little spasm
Possibly there will be more of
the same. Indeed, some, day it
may reach the Hearst papers and
drive them out of a business part
nership, through advertising,
with the venereal disease quacks.
Anyhow, every little bit "helps
in"the wait of eradicating vice.
