LETTERS TO EDITOR
HUMANITY DAY. Permit me to
join Mr. 3. F. Cleveland and Mr.
George R. Wehner in their prepara
tion to celebrate Humanity Day,
which will be duly celebrated when
all of us seriously begin and continue
thinking about doing the right thing
without any ifs and ands.
There is only one way and one
thing that is right, and that is the
right side in every instance. It is
the same in broad daylight as in the
dark. It is necessary to have a wrong
side in order to know which side is
-The reason we have not done the
right thing before is that we have
fooled away oar time. You know
time is money.
Oar valuable time has been spent
in sport, in nonsensical disputes,
bluffs and Ees, hanging around and

their own and begin using their funds
for industrial purposes.

daring, but if it is, then I dare. Let

WHAT HE SAW. At the present
time much is being said of improper
relations between bosses and their
female stenographers and I wish to
tell what I myself have seen in busi
ness offices during business hours.
When a new skyscraper in the loop
reaches a height so as to command
a good view of surrounding offices we
workmen on the job are generally
able to ferret out loving matches that
are taking place in these offices very
easily. I'll never forget a job that
went up at Clark and Randolph sts.
about four years ago when there was
hardly an hour passed that some one
on the job didn't spot in some office
a dignified business man loving his
stenographer or sometimes the fair
female taking the initiative in the
bout of caressing and kissing, etc.
There were at least a thousand
men on this job who saw some of
