movies. Some actors and actresses
have had as many as a half dozen
engagements during the past season.
And at the end of the season they
find themselves broke.
Judge Goodnow, presiding judge in
the Morals Court; Prosecutor Max
teorshak .and Kate Adams, head of
the Coulter House, are now wrest
ling with the problem. Kate Adams
'has taken some of them to her refuge
on Calumet avenue.
"It is pitiful to see these girls in the
Morals Court," said Judge Goodnow.
"Some of them come here that are
merely little girls who have started
out with fine ambitions. But in the
summer time when the refuge of a
job is- gone they come face to face
with the ugly side of life; with the
struggle for existence. And some of
. -them yield.

f,r 'if the theatrical people started some
sort of a fund out of which these
girls could be sent to their homes
during the summer time. Chicago
is too hard for a strange girl fighting
'life's big struggles."
1 In the Morals Court the other day
fe. case was brought up that showed
distinctly the need of better protec
tion for chorus girls. Two young
girls, extremely pretty, were brought
in, charged with soliciting.
It was apparent they were not
"regulars." In broken 'voices "they
told their story. They had been in
the show business for one season.
They saw bright futures ahead. But
the show closed in May. Each had a
small sum laid aside, but that soon
went. And then they met two men
one day through a theatrical friend.
There was a much-needed dinner, a
restful auto ride and then the other.
The judge paroled them.
