It is only an extract a South' Chicago
woman wrote to a friend, after hav
ing made a visit to the county poor
farm at Oak Forest : .
"I went over to the tuberculosis
tents and there, to my surprise, found
a young man' from here living in one.
I met his wife outdoors and asked
her if I might look into their tent
as I found she was one of our clerks
here in one of our department stores.
She is earning six dollars per week,
pays $2 per week for her room, goes,
but to see her husband every Sunday
and brings him fresh eggs, and other
things to eat. Now I wonder how
she pays for her washing and how
she can get-nough to eat -to keep
her alive. Ain't it awful? "The head
nurse atTthe Steel Mills' told her she
was going to send her one quart of
milk a day from.- now on for I-be-lieve
