REFORM OR PROSECUTION
San Diego, like many other
cities, is- in the midst of reforming
her social evil, at the demand of
a Reform Commission. So on a
Sunday morning, her police raid
ed her redlight district. The re
sults of the raid are remarkable,
as disclosing conditions it would
be well for every other city to in
quire into in her own behalf.
The police took 138 women to
headquarters, one woman for ap
proximately every ISO of male
population. These women ap
peared before the chief of police
and the reform committee, the"
chief warning them of prosecu
tion if they didn't leave town or
reform, and the reform commit1
tee offering them honorable em
ployment, if they would reform.
Only two of the 138 wanted to re
form. One of these was a ne
gress and the other partly insane.
The other 136 had funds to take
-them to Los Angeles.
Listen to the principals in this
movement for reform of the so
cial evil :
Speaking for the 136, one of the
girls said to the reforming wo
men : "You will find many of us
who are willing enough to re
form, but-we would rather re
main what we are than become
the drudges you would be obliged
to make of us."
Said Police Chief Wilson:
"Why will not the women of
other towns flock to San Diego
for the same reasons that the wo
men we are driving out are going
to Los Angeles ?"
Said the Reformers : "We have
now to prevent the redlight dis
trict spreading to other parts of
the city, to educate in sex hygiene
and to work for character build
ing of the young."
How many other cities of our
nation will these facts and condi
tions fit proportionately? Is it
true of other cities .that condi
tions of employment are so hard
that only two of their 138 fallen
women want to reform or have
any hope, of reforming?
