The -Day Book today has to
hank the Hearst publications in
Chicago for an entirely gratitu
ous piece of advertising.
In a cute little box on the front
page qf the American today, the
following .sentence occurs :
"The , whole ' object (of the
strike) is to make a condition
whereby the Dally "Socialist,
Daily World and Day Book will
get more circulation."
The American states that this
is a quotation from the speech of
John C. Harding, secretary of the
Chicago Typographical Union, in
his speech to the printers.
Harding did not mention the
Day Book in his speech. He did
make a reference to the Daily So
cialist and Daily World, although
not in the words of the American.
But he did not mention the Day
Bobk. For all the Day Book
knows, or cares, Mr. Harding
may not be aware of its existence.
But apparently the American is
painfully, aware of the Day
Book's existence. Apparently the
American .is annoyed by the Day
Book. Else why should the Amer
ican take the trouble to print a
deliberate lie, which, by the mere
. iact of its being there, advertises
the Day Book?
. It is just possible that the Day
Book has been telling too much
trqth about one Andy Lawrence
to suit the American.

several unions have been notified J
by their officers that any member
who purchases a trust newspaper
will be fined. The Milkmen's
Union and the Electricians Tiave
fixed their- fines at $25 for each
offense. Other unions have fixed
the.fine at smaller amounts.

did not strike.
The Pressmen's Union of San

against the Examiner. Hearsts
