LETTERS TO EDITOR
Editor Day Book: I have had oc
casion to take notice of the Chicago
Examiner's war reports, and as far
as I can figure this paper has report
ed forty-two German war vessels
sunk, over 70,000 German soldiers
killed, without any corresponding
casualties from the opponents.
For the benefit of this famous
paper I will let out a secret and I
hope it will bring no international
complications between the U. S. and
Germany. On board or German war
ships the officers drink champagne
and other wines, the sailors schnaps
and beer. They all save the corks
from the bottles, drop them over
board on strings tied to the railing
of the ship. Now, if the ship sinks,
the corks will raise her quickly with
out apparent damage and the Exam
iner is welcome to send them to
Davie Jones' locker once more.
Editor Day Book: Kindly call at
tention to the following fact: Several
men were bathing at the Humboldt
Park bathing beach, and as they were
bathing one certain group of men at
tacked another group of men and in
jured them very badly.
Their only object in doing this was
because they were Jewish.
The worst part of it all is that when
they were fighting they ran to the
door and tried to get out, but the
doorkeeper said that they had to stay
it until their time was up. By that
time we could all have been killed.
There wasn't even a policeman
around the place.. They should always
see that all public places should be
protected by some officer, because all
kinds of people come in contact with
one another in public places.
Please see to this, so that better
service might be given.
All this happened between ten and
eleven o'clock, Sunday, August 9,
1914. William Milgrom, 1215 N.
