LETTERS WRITTEN TO
THE DAY BOOK
Editor Day Book:
Some day whenjrou have time send
an inspector over"to 520 S. State
street and have him take a look at
the photographs of some of the fair
beauties who are advertised to appear
there. They have less clothing on
them, I believe, than did Adam or Eve
when they first strolled through the
Garden of Eden. There are many
young girls and boys who are com
pelled to pass such places as this on
their way to and from work and I be
lieve an expose or a little limelight on
such pictures would have an effect of
getting our moral's censor, who con
demned "September Morn," busy.
These fair ladies have it on "Septem
ber Morn" at her best.
A Reader of The Pay Book.
