THE BEANS ARE SPILLED, SAYS
DAY BOOK READER
Editor Day Book: Help! Help!
Telephone Central 100 for the
wrecking crew! They've begun to
read The Day Book in Wilmette and
Evanston and it's spreading. Send
for old Doc Evans and see what can
be done. The New Trier Township
High School in Kenilworth is going
to throw out that "quack" hygiene
course so carefully planted there by
the Tribune, and it looks as if the
school will become respectable again.
Help! It's all the fault of The Day
Book.
Here's how it started. Bertie Tay
lor of the Tribune. "You know Ber
tie lives in Gle'ncoesin the summer
time. But you's-gpt?to pronounce it
the wrong way or you can't get a
stand ''in" with Bertie. You .must
accent it on the "Glen." Well, Ber
tie. He's the vogue you know, in the
summer time in Glengko. Bertie
produced a Day Book one afternoon
on the four-fifteen train. Bertie sits
in a seat by himself. Only a few ex
clusive ones know him. But they
piped The Day Book at once. It was
so unusual to see Bertie reading
such a coarse-looking production.
Bertie runs to class, you know. But
they got wise to the rough stuff that
Bertie was reading in The Day Book.
And now it's all off.
Might as well forget to send any
Day Books to Rogers Park, Evanston,
Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka,
Hubbard Woods and Glengko. Be
cause the Bertie fans all buy The
Day Book now from the newsstands
before they leave the loop. You
don't know Bertie. Last summer 'he
started a Shaw epidemic and the
summer before an Oscar Wilde. Just
like that The C. & N. W. trains now
look like a Sunday school the week
before the annual picnic. You know
Bertie has a big following along the
North Shore. They liked the way
Bertie handed them his thoughts, all
hand-picked and twice cooked.
But, my! You should see them
chew now on some of that parboiled
stuff in The Day Book. These old
codgers, you know, along the Shore
for years got all their thinking direct
from the Tribune. Now they're all
buying self-starters of their own.
Say, it's hard to sleep nights now.
Yon can hear 'em thinking. I'm
afraid The Day Book has spoilt these
North Shore suburbs. The Tribune's
"very best" people live here, you
know, and now they're all getting
headaches. It won't do at all. Some
thing must be done to stop this Day
Book epidemic. No use to fire Bertie.
For the mischief's done.
Alfred Cordon.

TAXDODGERS WAR STILL ON
State's Att'y Hoyne is going farther
with his crusade against taxdodgers.
Yesterday he made the following an
nouncement: "Property and persons who have
escaped just taxation under the exist
ing constitution and laws can be
reached without furnishing any claim
that there is confiscation or in
justice' He backed that up with the state
ment that the -attaches of his office
were going the limit to bring the
tiodgers in. ,
