"One of the prime things these
housekeepers aim to do is teaching
people to live within-their incomes.
Such extravagance, more than al
most anything else, is productive of
trouble and misery in liemes.
"Charity should have fo'flts funda
mental aim the placing of the recip
ients on an independent economic
footing. This is not accomplished
unless education accompanies relief
work and needy persons are taught
to live economically and get full-value
for the money coming into the house
hold. "To me it seems a clear waste of
money to simply hand put small sums
to people begging onf the streets.
When that money is a'pent these peo
ple are in the identical position they
were helped, and nothing has been
given them which tends to remove
them from the plane on which they
stand."
Julius in that speech sounded the
creed of the strong people very well.
For none should know it much better
than he. He has sketched a nice
Utopia for the rich. They always
want the poor to be taught to live
on poor wages. Aud Julius is not
backward about helping along the
cause. The plant of Sears, Roebuck
& Co., over which he presides, is a
monument to the greed of big cor
porations. Julius is right now trying to
ticket himself through the needle's
eye by squandering money on the
"United Charities.
"It is not know -whether Julius
taught the officials of the United
Charities the "scientific" charity
idea or they taught him. But both
the United Charities and Sears, Roe
Buck & Co. are run on the same prin
ciples. Time after time The Day Book has
exposed the United Charities and
their malpractices. There are numer
ous cases where women and chil
dren have appealed to the United
.Charities looking for food and re
ceiving advice.
But it gives a lot of press stuff to
Rosenwald and the several other men
of his type. But Julius' charity was
shown up when a fearless young girl
sat beside him on the stand before
the vice commission last winter and
testified that she had slaved for ?4.50
a week at the Sears-Roebuck plant
while a slavedriver made her speed
up. She also gave an example of
Rosenwald's generosity by showing
that he charged his underpaid em
ployes for the water they drank.
