THE "BIGGEST FAKE" CONTEST
CAUSES BIG INTEREST
The "greatest fake" contest ap
pears to be arousing real excitement.
The answers are coming in fast The
United Charities appears to be the
most general selection, although the
morals squad and a few others are
crowding the Charities. Here are
some of today's.
By Earl "Pearl, Dunning, I1L: 1,
United Charities; 2, World's Greatest
Newspaper; 3, women police squad.
. I. P., Chicago, m.: 1, United Char
ities; 2, Progressive party.

ber, 1462 W. 73d pL: "1 The posters
all over town which read: 'There is no
excuse for being out of work when

columns of the Chicago Daily News.'
2 The bargain basements of the
State st stores. They have no bar
gains. The goods on sale there are
mostly of a quality that " couldn't
stand daylight inspection. 3 Mayr's
wonderful stomach remedy."
j There are many other letters, but
on account of their length we are put
ting them in the The Public Forum
department, where they'll appear
from day to day.
