MERELY COMMENT
All "the newspapers in town are
lauding James Deering of the Inter
national Harvester Co. because he
gave the Wesley Hospital a cool mil
lion. And we are the only paper to take
a look at the other side of the deal.
While Daering's COOL million is
giving him a lot of notoriety, a bunch
of HOT workers are slaving away at
the International Harvester Co. and
giving Deering the cool millions.
It's funny ho wa man with the
dough can grab off the big titles with
the big bugs when the same man is
paying little wages to little workers.
Money seems to charm some folks.
Let's all stand up and sing, "Oh,
believe us of all those en-Deering
young charms."
Don't forget what Sherman said
war is . And war hasn't changed since
Sherman's time.
Ass't Corporation Counsel George
L. Reker threatens wealthy property
owners who lease their land to dive
runners with the law unless they take
some immediate action of the ousting
nature.
Sic 'em, George. Some of them re
mind us of the folks who go to church
on Sunday all day long and then
gamble and skin somebody the other
six days of the week.
That's a lot of people's idea of
Christianity.

DOROTHY ARNOLD STATEMENT
Pittsburgh, Pa., April 16. Dis't At

of Dorothy Arnold, that he explain

was formerly a patient at the "house
of mystery" and "is now dying at her
home in New York," denied that he
had made any such statements.

Jackson was correctly quoted by the
newspapers.
