HANK CAN'T WORK FOR HETTY
SHE HATES SWELL CLOTHES
New York, Sept. 22. Another
bubble burst today with a loud pop.
But while the bubble was in the pro
cess of growing the Chicago Cubs

they ever did in the noisy days of
Charles Webb Murphy. Here's the
Someone spread the report that
Hetty Green was to buy the Cubs.
Sporting writers were tickled silly. It
gave them one of the mighty few
chances they've had of late to break
into print on the first pages.
And then Col. Edward Green, Mrs.
Hetty Green's son, flatly denied the
"My mother is not a fan," chuckled
CoL Green, "and wouldn't think of
buying1 the Chicago baseball club."

STILL AFTER DOPE TRAFFIC
Ass't Corporation Counsel George
L. Reker and Major Funkhouser are
again going after the dope fiends. As
sisted by "Doc" Williams and Detective-Sergeant

When you're feelin' sort of sleepy
And your eyes are kind o' dim;
When your limbs feel sort of creepy
And you have no vig or vim;
