MERELY COMMENT
Wei!, the railroads worked Uncle
Sammy for that 5 per "cent rate in
crease, BUT
Business rs still on the bum.
And the railroads are. not doing all
that buying that was to start the hum
of industry humming.
Lessing Rosenthal has resigned as
president of Municipal Voters' league.
That means that Vic Lawson will
haye to elect his own hand-picked
candidates.
Watch the News and Tribune come
down the home stretch for Boss De
neen's personally conducted candi
date Harry OlBon, the judge who
won't resign;
Calling Olson a nonpartisan can
didate is bunk.
He is the Peneen-Lawson candi
date, and the Progressives and non
partisans were trapped into support
ing him.
Everybody 'round town is talking
jitney bus get the habit
In Des Moines, Portland, Denver,
Kansas City, San Diego and a num
ber of other cities folks are making
good use of the motor car jitney bus
system.
The new traffic idea is proving a
success everywhere it Is being tried
Folks evidently like to ride home in
a seat.
On the other hand, Chicago folks
are having a fine time hanging to
straps, thank you.
Let's see, what did Gen, Sherman
say about war?
Anyway, ft reminds us of the street
car situation in Chicago today.
Together we STAND and together
we hang to a strap.
We get itln the neck going or com
ing. And you can also take that as
meaning going or coming from work.
At the" present time, if you want to
ride home In a seat you will have to
"go west, my son, go west."
And that also applies to the daugh
ters, mothers, uncles, aunts, cousins,
brothers, sisters and so forths.
LETTERS TO EDITOR,
TEACHERS. I -see by The Day
Day Book that so many girls are out
of work in New York city. Then no
tice'that they alighting to put back
teachers that ap birth to babies.
Why do married women have to Q,,
work when their husbands work? I
know a party right here in Chicago
whose husband is head doctor in an
institution and she is teaching school.
Why don't they make a law that
when a teacher marries she must
leave school so that some single girl
can have a job? A Reader.
NECESSITY OF PROSTITUTION.
Prostitution can be said to be ne
cessary in the same sense that war is
necessary. like war, prostitution
has its roots deep in the human con
sciousness and in society, but it has
not always and everywhere existed.
There are also various degrees and
kinds of prostitution. ' (
In the rural districts of Europe
where I was born there was no pros
titution as it is understood in Chi
cago. Very often people married for
money and property, and property
and customkept. people together
when love had departed. There
were also promiscuous women, both
married and unmarried, as well "as
men, and many children were born
out of wedlock-, but there was no
commercialized prostitution, no sex
diseases, and no class of hounded, ex
ploited and degraded women that
would correspond to the unfortunate
women of pur big citieg. ,
People who say that prostitution
has always existed and always will
exist are not very well informed and
they lack Imagination. They are,
therefore, hot very good prophets.
Even if prostitution had always ex
isted It wouldn't follow that it always
must remain. Cannibalism was at
one time almost universal. If there
had been Christians then gome of
them would no doubt have said that
it must always be.
