Then see that men are paid an ade
quate wage, sufficient for the main
tenance of a family and a home and
you'll have done more than the in
tellectual prostitutes that wear the
clerical garb can ever do for soul
or body. It is because I believe The
Day Book is on the right track that I
have taken the pleasure of contribut
ing this article. The trouble with the
mass of mankind apparently seems
to be the taking on of new ideas;
hence we go forth burdened, fettered
and governed by the opinions of fos
silized savages. Conventionalism
everywhere seems to be the cause of
our slothful gait.
How interesting it is to note that
whenever a serious, conscientious in
vestigator traces the relation of low
wages to vice the way the cler
ical phonographs resound their mas
ters' voice in the polly phrases of
their profession. Look who butters
their bread and you'll know whose

A PENNY PHONE ARGUMENT
Charles Fitzmorris, secretary to
Mayor Harrison, is having the Auto
matic phone installed in his house at
East End avenue and 55th street. A
special permit was granted by the
south park board for the wires to
cross1 the 55th street boulevard. To
reach Fitzmorris' home a. line of wire
is run from 38th street and the Illinois
Central tracks, the nearest point that
could be tapped.
The information came to Penny
Phone League officers from a reliable
source that Fitzmorris wanted a
phone in his house that would give
him secret communication. One of
the points of superiority of the Auto
matic over the Bell manual system is
that you can talk to people without
others learning your business, Penny
Phone Leaguers argue.
