CHARITY THAT PAYS
Editor Day Book I read in The
Tribune and Examiner where the Sal
vation Army and Volunteers of Amer
ica were giving away overcoats.
The Salvation Army runs"about 7
or 8 big lodging hotels and, believe
me, every bed is paid ior or it is not
occupied. IJmow of a man who was
in the hospital and who was discharg
ed as cured, and the poor fellow was
without funds and was in no shape
to earn any money. He applied to
the Salvation Army fjr assistance,
which they would not give him.
They fold him if he wanted a, 10c
bed he would have to get the price as
they wasn't Tunning a charitable in
stitution. But you will always see the
Salvation Army people out begging
money from the unsuspecting public
under the. cloak of Christianity.
Now is the time to refuse all those
"Fake Religious Organizations" with
any kind of assistance, for.youcan
bet that they pocket over 95 per cent
of the money and clothes which th.ey

grafters, and I can prove my asser

LOOK UP THE THEATERS
Editor Day Book Now that. we
have our moving pictures .highly cen
sored, and a moral squad watching
-.the hotels and rooming houses to see
that .no one, .without. a marriage li
cense get therein, it occurred to me
that the creation of a committee on
theaters would also be a good thing.
If this aforesaid committee should
ever be launched I would suggest that
they visit the "Hippidrome" located
in the loop, the first one.
Their prices of admission, posted
near the window of the box office,
reads, 10, 20 and 30 cents only, that,
and nothing more. Several friends ,
and myself purchased 20-cent tickets,,
and for one hour and fifteen minutes
we vainly waited for a chance to get
in. ' . -r
Notwithstanding the number of
people that came out, the ushers an
nounced only 30-cent seats, and only
those who had the aforesaid tickets
were ushered in. Those who had
their 20-cent-tickets changed to 'the
tune of 10 cents extra were" imme
diately given the right of immediate
entrance to the show.
Being thoroughly worn out with.,
waiting,, and disgusted with the hold
up game which the ushers appeared '
to be putting over on the unsuspect
ing holders of 20-cent tickets I ask
ed one of the ushers if we could get
our money back at the office and he '
snarlingly replied that "he guessed
Well, we cashed in and left. Now
this, is not the first time that we have
been treated this way, but it surely
is the last.
If we have no laws to regulate such
matters then let .the city build a few
theaters and arrange the seating'ca
pacity so that when a 20-cent seat i3
vacated -the next individual will, not'
have to pay 30 cents for it. T. R. B.,

When you think of one thing that-.,
the friend, does not already possess -to
give at Christmas time it is a sure
indication that it would be better to
give it to some charity.
