WHY WASN'T GRAHAM TAYLOR HONEST IN
QUOTING FROM VICE REPORT HE SIGNED?
Why tiidn't'Professional "Expere' Tell All City Vice
Commission Said About Low Wages and Condi
tions? Does He Like to Be Used by Big Business?
Every trust newspaper in the city has played up, with exceeding glee,
the fact that Graham Tayl6r, who styles himself "professor," condemned
the O'Hara-low wages commission and denied that there was any connec
tion between low wages and vice.
Also, each and every one of them has referred to Taylor as an "expert
on vice," whatever that is.
Therefore, Graham Taylor becomes to some extent Interesting to the
people of Chicago.
Taylor was a member of the Chicago Vice Commission of which Dean
Sumner wag head, tmd when before the O'Hara commission Monday Taylor
made much of this.
"Two thousand four -hundred and twenty life stories of fallen women
passed under .my review as a member of te Chicago Vice Commission,'
And then he went on to say that practically none of these girls had even
said she fell because of low wages, lie did not go into too detailed an an
alyBis of the lives of those 2,420, but veered off to the New York Rockefeller
report and other statistics.
Well see just how honest Graham Taylor was in this presentation of
the 2,420 cases of the-Chicago Vice Commission. Here is what the com
mission says of the cases:
"SUMMARY OF CONDITIONS INVOLVED IN THE PERSONAL HIS
TORIES AND INVESTIGATED RECORDS OF 2,420 WOMEN AND GIRLS
UNDER REVIEW WHICH SUGGEST THE RECOMMENDATION HEREIN
