CAPT RYAN TAKES A SLAP AT
The "high-brow" flats along Grand"
blvd., south of 35th st, where a man
cannot gain entrance-without a per
sonal invitation and wfiere crowds
are "parties," were raked severely by
Cap't Ryan of the Stanton av. station.
"The woman are not the kind you
would find in the redlight district,"
declared Cap't Ryan. "They are the
"high-brows" of the profession.
"You cannot enter their flats with
out an invitation and if a strange man
were to approach one of them she
would call a policeman."
Cap't Ryan announced that the
"high-brow" places were next in his
campaign against disorderly flats
which have comprised virtually a new
redlight district in the neighborhood.
The conviction and fines assessed
against inmates of Ike Berger's Doug
las hotel, at 35th and Cottage Grove
av., spurred his efforts.
Each of four men and four women
got a $10 fine before Judge Heap.
Berger asked for a change of venue.

When she died all of the village
Got the news that went around
That she left a lot of money;
In her bustle it was found.
She had saved from meager earnings
That she earned from daily grind.
Ten thousand dollars was a lot
Of dough to leave behind.
P. S. That joke was first told just
previous to the revolutionary war.
We've got a good memory.
