WHERE ARE THE COPS?
Editor Day Book: We might some
time wonder where our police, are,
after reading of repeated holdups.
No matter in what part of the city an

If my house is full of bugs, do I go
to work and paint the bugs to make
them look like angels, or do I drive
the bugs out?
The standard of news of the other
newspapers is wrong. Can you
change that standard?
The other newspapers stand for
graft, murder, suicide, divorce, rape,
child slavery and mental debauch.
That is their Big News.
The Day Book stands for brother
hood, life, harmony, freedom and
The Day Book can't mix with the
What The Day Book can do is
this: It can so change the thought
and consciousness of the people that
they will no longer demand newspa

then the quack press will disappear
from the news stands and be seen
only in the Field Museum and the Art
Institute. Alfred Gardon.
