MERELY COMMENT
Look where you slip.
Dean Sumner is now a bishop.
Greetings Bish!
The Herald says it is fighting union
labor's battle. God" help union labor.
Harrison's luck this year may be
found in the men who run against
him.
Why don't the newspaper run their
popular hero, J. Rosenwald.
If Julius could get the votes of all
who violate the law in one way or
another he would run way ahead of
his ticket.
His platform could be short and
sweet, for instance "To hen with
tax laws."
By the way, what's going to hap
pen if everybody refuses to file a tax
statement?
The newspapers tell us that Mar
shall Field III. is in town.
Marshall Field III. will be, remem
bered by our readers as the grand
son of his granfather.
He wouldn't talk to the newspa
pers, but his money keeps talking for
him just the same.

the Taxdodgers' Alliance.
Let's all join it and abolish taxa
tion altogether.
It begins to look as if a man who
pays taxes in Chicago js a bQOb.
LJTTLE BAKERS FORCED TO QUIT
BY WHEAT JUMP
The rise in flour prices is forcing
small neighborhood bakers out of
business, according to J. W. Eckhart,
a miller. Between 200 and 300 bread
makers have closed their shops.
May wheat sold for $1.41 Friday
highest since the time of the Leiter
operations. And $1.75 a bushel is
quoted as a price to he expected soon.
All dealers tieny that the rise -has
been caused by speculation, blaming
competition between foreign buyers
for the sharp gain.
"Many of the small bakers are
hanging on in hope that their bigger
brothers will lift the price of a loaf
of bread to 6 cents," declared Mr.
Eckhart
There is a rumor of a proposed na
tional embargo to stop the exporta
tion of wheat. This would force
prices to a natural level.
