SHE FOUND OUT A FEW THINGS
ABOUT SOME OF THE MEN
Cora Mawhinney has just turned
over to Chief Healey a report of her
investigations into theflirting of the
loop. In the company of good-looking
girl friends she found "it unne
cessary to walk a block before we
were approached by men who would
step up in response to the smiles we
Before this investigation Miss
Mawhinney thought that a man and
a girl might smile at each other and
even meet without wickedness.
"When I read of policewomen lur
ing men to flirt with them I thought
it shameful," said Miss Mawhinney.
"My illusions are gone now.
"Flirting is no longer the innocent
pastime it used to be. Men who flirt
nowadays usually invite girls to a
private diningroom of their hotel
room. Some say they know of an
apartment. Their one object is to
take her to perdition."
In the thirty "subjects" met in her
campaign Miss Mawhinney met only
four whose intentions were honor
able. All were well dressed and had
plenty of money. The majority said
they were brokers and promoters.
"None of them attempted to bully
and frighten us when we repulsed
their advances," the girl continued.
"The only remedy for the condition
we found is a strict law which should
be so severe that it would extermi
nate this class of men."
