ARMY OF DESPAIR !
By Fred Isler, Sec'y Hoboes' Union. '
MISSIONS. To find a shelter dur- -ing
the winter time is a problem to J
the man who is out of a job. That ,
is, if he is homeless and destitute. It i
is not an easy matter by any means -to
always be fortunate enough to get '
the necessary 10 to 15 cents to pay "
for a bed in a cheap lodging house. '
In the summer time the problem is J
simplicity itself. The floor of a con
venient box car, the public park, the ?
water front, even a back lot will do.
All a man has to do is to spread a
newspaper, lay upon it, and if the
policeman does not disturb him the
problem is solved. But when Jack
Frost is back again the great ques
tion that confronts the destitute man
is: How shall I get the "price" of a
bed or a place to shelter me? If he
happens to be an experienced
"moucher" he generally gets it. How
ever, in the case of the majority of
the unemployed, who as a rule are .
too timid or else will not lower them
selves to beg on the streets, and for '
various reasons will not go to the
municipal lodging house, there re-'
mains but one alternative the floor v
of a mission.
Chicago has many such places
most always located in neighbor-'
hoods where the laboring element
predominate. Seldom are they to be
found in the residential sections of
this and other cities where the well-to-do
reside. There magnificent
churches built of stones arid having
all the up-to-date conveniences and
modern comforts welcome the wor- c
shippers. The mission by the corner
with its poor accommodations is good '
enough for the man in overalls. Yet
we are told that in this country there
are no classes.
In the summer time the missions, '
like the churches, have a slim attend
ance and the appeals of the gospel
workers appear to fall on deaf ears.
In. the winter time, especially Jhis
