brow was wreathed with "In God We
Trust." The American eagle was
strapped across my back and 13 stars
placed in my firmament. In fact, I
was extra good-looking. One day
Papa Schemer gave me a toss and
oh, how I did roll. I remember how
I rolled into the stocking of a prosti
tute, who exchanged me at a depart
ment store for silk hosiery. Shortly
afterward I found myself in a pay
envelope, over a bar, in a church
basket, joined a Salvation Army,
fumbled by pickpockets and at last
fell into the wide pocket of a street
car conductor, who gave in exchange
45 cents, a transfer and registered a
fare. Safely, almost tenderly, I was
laid before a receiver of one of the
numerous traction stations, sealed in
an envelope and stamped N. G. I ex
pect no mercy and am ready to meet
my fate, but I do wish to make one
last appeal. The U. S. government
had nothing to do with my creation.
I did not cost them one cent. There
may possibly be 200,000 of my kin.
Why should the street cars of Chi
cago act as a clearing house for the
federal government? And why should
8,000 conductors be called upon to
redeem us in full and surrender us
for confiscation?

GIRLS' VOICES

Charles Dillingham is looking for
pretty girls with good voices for his
fall productions. Dillingham arranged
with a talking machine company to
record the voices at their agencies in
the different cities and suggested that
these records, together with photo
graphs, be sent to him for "Considera
tion. The first record and photograph
which arrived at the office was sent
