MRS. ABRAHAMS WANTS JOB
HER HUSBAND HAD
Mrs. Fannie Abrahams, wife of the
late Alderman "Mannie" Abrahams,
and whose brother, Morrie, now holds
the seat, contemplates running for
alderman in the Twentieth Ward.
She hopes to run on the Independent
ticket, and states that both the
Democratic and Republican forces
have offered to give her their support
and, if elected, to have clean politics
in that ward.
"Clean politics and a square deal
for the ghetto district is the motto,"
said Mrs. Abrahams. "I am confident
that I am qualified to represent the
people of this district."
Mrs. Abrahams will start suit
against Morrie Abrahams to recover
her husband's saloon and real prop
erty. Exposure of the land deals
made by Board of Education result of
Mrs. Abrahams' action.

some "prominent" Bulgarian "lead

We have nothing to say against
the very idea. In this age of civiliza

But what we want to make known
is the fact that the same "leaders"
who started the campaign are the
"leaders" who applauded the war,
who urged our people to go and fight
When, before the war was declar
ed, we warned the people of the im
pending consequences of the war, we
met the anger of these "leaders" and
their cry that we lacked patriotic sen
timent. At that time they magnified
the martyrs for the national cause
and taught the people that any sacri
fices to that cause meant nothing be
fore the "glory," which was to come.
Today these same "leaders" etfuse
bitter tears over the sufferings and
the misery reigning in our country.
These same "leaders" are going to
speak against the horrors of the war
at a meeting next Sunday!
Hypocrites! One thing that is true,
it is that these persons are always
speculating with the name of the peo
ple for their own interests.
In presenting the true facts about
those dealers with our national af
fairs, I express the protest of the ma
jority of our fellow countrymen, who
carried the burden of the war on their
shoulders and served unwillingly the
cause of others, who were in the safe
during the war and now are showing
more prosperous than before, while
the common people inherited the
We protest against those false
"benevolents" now, who helped the
increase of misery by supporting the
war, and now shamelessly speak
