ANARCHY OF MANDEL BROS.' STORE
IS ATTACKED BY CHICAGO WOMEN
Law Passed by Council Five Years Ago Regarding Sub-
basements Is Violated by, S,tate Street Department
Store Women's Clubs Want the Why
and Wherefore
It's five years now since the city
council of Chicago passed a city law
which says nobody's got a right to
run a second basement salesroom.
And for close onto five yearstheMan
del Brothers department store on
State street has been running exactly
that kind of a second basement place
against the law.
The Woman's City club and other
women's organizations are joining in
a movement to find out how and why
Mandel Brothers do it and who and
what is behind the Mandel store.
A speaker before the Woman's City
club class in citizenship said yester
day: "I am quoting William D. Haywood
of the Industrial Workers of the
World when I say to you that the
sort of anarchy practiced by Mandel
Brothers in this case was responsible
for the bloodshed and the killing of
soldiers and miners and women and
children in Colorado. The corpora
tions of Colorado laughed at the 8
hour law and the weigh-check law
and other laws in the same way that
Mandel Brothers for five years have
been able to laugh at the law of the
city of Chicago on second basement
salesrooms. This is precisely the sort
of thing that breeds despair in polit
ical action and produces what is call
ed direct action."
A resolution was passed which asks
the board of directors of the Wom
an's City club to go right to the bot
tom of how and why Mandel Broth
ers have flouted the law five years.
