Thumbnail for

is quite capable oflooking out for
'herself when she receives a "wage
v sufficient to keep "body and soul
together.
We are convinced, too, that
working girls are every whit as
.moral, every whit as pure arid
clean at heart, as any member .of
Chicago fashionable; rich and idle
"society."
We even know some working
.girls whom we would - back
against any number of society
wpmen when it came to purity.
And we ddn't see that the Chi
cago Woman's club needs to wor
ry itself over the moralty of girls
who are just as good as they are.
The photographs of te mem
bers of the Chicago Woman's
club often are published in the
newspapers. And those of them
whose pictures, are published say:
"Oh, how horrid 'this nasty
publicity is!"
And then .go and call the' atten
tion of-all their friends to the faet
that their pictures "WERE pub
lished. '
c Then their friends, whose pic
tures were .NOT. published, get
.rc about it, and start some new
-MOVEMENT and pester the
life out of editors in order to get
THEIR pictures in the paper,
ri Oh, we know all about this
"horrid publicity" end of it, hav
ing had our lives made a1 harden
"by just such women as compose
-the Ghicago Woman's club, and
who get themselves all worked up
about the moral state of the
-working girl. . -
' Ofxcourse, we know quite well
;why The Tribune is -publishing
these pictures of working"girls.
it wants to oe-popular wun tne
working girls, just as.newspapers
which always are publishing pic
tures of the members of the Chi
cago Woman's club want to be
popular with the Voman's club
members.
But that doesn't make any djf- -fererice!
"
Heaven knows the working
girl has her troubles! What be
tween poor wages and the sons
of "society" women who seem to
look upon her as their lawful
prey? there are times when the
working girl must wonder if life
is worth livine.
But we see no reason why her
by a lot of rich and idle "society"
women presuming to worry over
her morality!
And we sincerely hope The
Tribune will go right ahead pub
lishing .those pictures and flat
tering the working girls whose "
pictures th$y publish despite the
request of' the Chicago Woman's
club.
The "very latest," the kinoplas
ticon, creating a sensation in
Germany, may be the death of the
ordinary moving pictures. Pro
jocts upon a' dark stage without
canvas, full outlines in perfect
relief of-the actors by mere me
chanical reflections.
Sou.thern Pariffcdiningcar pat
rons use 100,000 napkins-and 45,
0QQ. table clothes every month.
GeeLjnother, ain't you glad you
don't have to do that washing?
