HARRISON LETS DOWN A LITTLE
ON MOVIE CENSORSHIP
Several weeks ago Mayor Harri
son condemned a large number of
motion pictures which portrayed the
white slave traffic and sex problems.
Lately, however, permits have been
issued by his "official order" to these
films which were knocked by board
Among the plays the public may
now expect to see are "Three Weeks"
and "The Lure."
Many films which have kept out of
Chicago by the censorship board win
be again submitted for inspection in
the next few weeks
DR. WINEBURG FOUND GUILTY
Dr. Louis P. Wineburg, Lagonier,
Ind., is guilty. The jury which in fed
eral court heard the case presented
against him by Grace Belle Licher
believed the story of the pretty miss
of 19 rather than Wineburg's seven
witnesses who denied her testimony.
She said Wineburg made love to
her, gave her mysterious white tab
lets and then brought her to Chi
cago where they spent the night to
gether at the Great Northern hotel,
The jury recommended leniency
and Wineburg may escape with a
heavy fine. Theh judge can give him
five years besides. The doctor's wife
and two children were in court when
the decision was given.
It is the first white slave case tried
in Chicago into which the question
of commercialization of has not entered.
BIG BUSINESS FIGHTS HARD
AGAINST 8-HOUR BILL
Shall the working girls and wom
en of Illinois keep on working in hun
dreds of factories and stores under
the wear and tear of the ten-hour
Or shall these girls and women
have an eight-hour day more time
for health more time for life?
Illinois manufacturers and their
lawyers and witnesses before the
committee on industrial affairs at
Springfield said "No" to the latter
question yesterday. A. R. Bone of
the Chicago Telephone Co. said his
company would have to pay thou
sands of dollars in extra money for
clerks if the law passes. Medifl Mc-
Cormick, legislative member who in
troduced the eight-hour bill, cornered
Bone and showed that the Bell sys
tem, of which the C. T. C. is a part,
makes money under the eight-hour
laws of five other states.
All the old crowd that has fought
every piece of labor legislation on Il
linois statute books was there. John
M. Glenn, a newspaper man who
never in his life ran a store or fac
tory, spoke as secretary of the Illinois
Manufacturers' ass'n. He denounced
the Chicago Tribune and the Mc
Cutcheon cartoon of Tuesday. It
showed manufacturers grinding chil
dren and women into a grist for prof
its. Dudley Taylor, lawyer, came along
with the old patter that the law is
all right but it goes too far and it
should be held off while investigations
are made and a better bill drawn.
E. C. Westman and Charlie Piez of
Chicago argued that business is being
destroyed by laws and more laws will
make things worse.
