papas who hare to work and earn our
living. Yon may ask me did he win?
Sure he won, although he lost 50
hours' sleep, was insulted and wor
ried to death. He is still fighting the
battles of others and his is a life of
service for others. Jfow, little ones,
when you pray just remember your
hero, who is still fighting for you in
playgrounds, schools, everywhere.
One writer said: "God made George
Washington childless- that this nation
might call him father." As these park
playgrounds for children are being
copied all over-the world, the kiddies'
of the world might turn to their
champion and -say: "God made you
childless that we children of the
world might call you father." Now,
children, can you guess who this man
is? If not, ask papa or mamma or
Mr. Cochran. Allen Steven, 2538 N.
CITY MANAGEMENT. -The poli
ticians are strangely managing our
city and county affairs. It seems as
though they do not understand busi
ness at alL
The purchasing agents are paying
over 25 per cent too much and every
department costs the city from 25 to
50 per cent more than if privately
managed. Besides this the city has
a group of commissioners that are
drawing high salaries, with stenog
raphers and attorneys that do not
bring the city 10 per cent of what
they cost When you hear them talk
before election they know all about
business. They tell you how the other
fellow is wasting the city's money
and promise to right the former
faults. When the election is over
everything remains as it was.
It is essential that the books of all
departments be examined monthly,
and not by attorneys, financiers or
politicians. A business man, carpen
ter, a bricklayer, a clerk or any work
er could do the work more satisfac
torily. I would suggest that five
names for each department be drawn
from the jury box for the monthly ex
aminations. This could be accom
plished by putting a petition before
the people for a vote on election day.
I am willing to help the good cause
if there are any volunteers. No
money necessary. Lew Perlman.
BILLY SUNDAY Can any of The
Pay Book readers tell me In figures
what Billy Sunday does with the
money he receives from the public?
The people contribute the money,
so I think the people have a right to
know what he does with it Many
are opposed to Billy Sunday on ac
count of the thousands of dollars he
collects, but if he is using them in
the right "way and would only tell us
just how, I think he would make
many more friends and get larger
' The people have a God-given right "
to know in figures what Billy Sun

come to employ such a pretty nurse
Wifey Because I want the chil
dren to have police Drotection when
