THE RED LIGHT. I would like to
say a few words regarding the red
light district Before election Thomp
son was for an open town. Then
let's have an open town. Of course,
I don't mean to have crooks or
thieves. What I mean is, to give them
a levee district, some part of Chi
cago, because men have always
sought the prostitute and will con
tinue to seek her. Innocent girls are
suffering now, and they will be at
tacked by men in the parks at night
during the summer months.
If a girl wants to go wrong, noth
ing in the world will be able to stop
her, and if a girl goes on the street
to solicit and gets arrested she will
pay her fine and go on the street
again. If they won't give them a
district they will keep-on spreading.
Soon they will be around 39th or
47th. At present they are at 31st and
Calumet I would like to hear from
some other readers regarding the red
light district. Daniel Green, 4749
FISHING. A. J. Schaber and per
haps other readers of The Day Book
wish to know of a good fishing place
along the Desplaines and Fox rivers
and other best places.
I have been to most every good
t place within 50 miles of Chicago and
as far as the state of Montana.
4 Fishing is almost a thing of the
past within any large city or 50 or
100 miles around it unless you know
the best places which the increased
population does not know about The
farther away from a large city the
better as most of us will choose the
near places because of the smaller
fare and soon fish out the place or
scare them away from the shores or
throw in bait and lunch, so the fish
won't bite on a hook.
Fish and frogs like -a quiet place
and will desert noisy places and move
on to more of Mother Nature, even '
though there is plenty of food along
the shore, as I have found and can '
prove by observing and studying.

GIVE FULL SUPPORT "Why

Those were the words uttered by '
one who met death while aboard the
Lusitania on her fatal trip, being'
struck amidship by a German torpedo
fired from one of their submarine
craft, and in less than half an hour '
listed to one side and went down into
the blue waters of the Atlantic about '
ten miles off the coast of Ireland.
Without warning, without even a
moment's thought for the safety of
me innocent and belpless women and
children, without even any prepara-
tion for the safety of the lives of
tljose aboard who were in no manner
engaged in the great strife now tear
ing asunder the very existence of na
tions, and, like a wolf in the night I
creeping upon its prey, all were, like i
innocent lambs, thrown in the jaws
of the merciless waves, struggling, t
crying piteously for loved ones, for'
help, for deliverance back to those J
they held dearly as their own, only i
to be caught in the suction of the
sinking boat and lost forever, never
again to be seen by the ones they
Words cannot express the suffering s
and sorrow which many friends and i
relatives had to endure, or the sor-
row which comes to a mother's heart 2
as her only babe is snatched from
her bosom and tossed into the sea, or
the sorrow which we as a nation have v
to endure when a catastrophe so 1
great is forced upon us. n
