CIRL MISLED BY WANT AD HAS
MAN FOUND GUILTY
The attacks of Peter A. Speek, an
official of the United States industrial
relations commission, on the accep
tance by newspapers of suspicious
looking want ads found justification
in a case in Judge Prindiville's court
As a result of a story told by May
Stafford, a young girl, who trusted
and answered a Tribune want ad,
Lowell Young, an artist, was fined
$100 and costs.
The girl testified that on Jan. 13
she was Induced to go to Young's of
fice in the Advertising bldg. by the
attractive appearing ad she read.
When she went there, she charged,
Young spoke of giving her a position
as a model and then attempted to
take indecent liberties with her.
The case has been allowed to drag
through the courts since that time,
but Thursday oik arguments of the
"state's attorney and Harry Smoot of
the Juvenile Protective ass'n, the case
was forced through.
Several weeks ago Ruth Goldstein,
another young girl, told of being
treated the same way when she an
swered a Tribune want ad.
It is of this sort of misleading ad
that Speek wants a thorough inves
tigation. He has found evidence of
ads working hardships on the jobless
who answer them and he Is asking
the inquiry for that reason.
In several speeches made in Chi
cago in the past few weeks Speek
has told of the game by which em
ployers lure jobless from far points
and then turn them down flat with
the statement: "No work."
It is thought that, following the
stories of girls, who like these two
girls, have been lured to office build
ings and placed at the mercy of men
that Speek will include this sort of
thing in his proposed Investigation.
