And that is something that doesn't often happen outside of novels.
No one has ever been able to say just what it is that makes
Billie Burke's personality so lovable. The dramatic critics have
tried, but whenever they'd go to see her to criticize, they'd fall right
sguare in love with her, and come away raving about her hair, and
her eyes and her form, and her voice, and above everything else,
about her sweetness.
That is really the secret of Billie Burke's success. She's so
sweet and womanly. And that is why ,it isn't only men who faJHn
ItiVe with Billie Burke, but the women and the girls and the children,
and everyone who sees her play or meets her.
Tomorrow, Billie Burke herself will tell you what she thinks
about love, and it's worth reading.' Perhaps tomorrow's article is
just about as good an explanation of why Billie Burke is so sWeet
and womanly, as anything thatever was written about her.
EVEN THE CHILDREN 1
One of the most'strikmg things
about the newspaper lockout has
been the perfect understanding of
. the situation shown by the school
children of Chicago.
Organized labor has much to
thank the children fdr.
A teacher in a North Side
school for years had her classes
answer want ads as, an exercise
in English. She has had to stop
this. The children protested in
.mass against having anything to
do with ads in non-union papers.
The Kershaw school, on the
South Side, is attended mostly by
children of fashionable parents.
A teacher there pinned one of Mc
Cutcheou's cartoons from the
Tribune on the blackboard to im
press some event on the minds of
So great a cry of protest
against the use of a cartoon from
a non-union newspaper went up
from the pupils, that the teacher
had to take it down.
In the Haven school, on the
South Side, which is attended
mostly by the children of work
ingmen, the pupils have made fre
quent and noisy demonstrations
against trust newspaper em
ployes. The Examiner's "Boy City
scheme, which never was more
than a dirty trick to trap school
children into working as strike
breakers by a bribe-vacation, has
been-hissed and hooted at in'the
schools time and again.
It is to be hoped that the trust
newspapers will not try and call
the school children sluggers, as
they have called the pressmen,
whom they locked out.
