MAYOR KEEPS CLOSED
DOOR ON WOMEN
Thompson Has the Big Say-so and Can Get Fair Play
1 Between Cops and Strikers, Say Women Unable
to Lay Their Evidence Before "Big BilF'

clubs and leagues shut out from
Mayor Thompson's office want Chi

Their committee of fifteen wanted to
put this to the mayor:
"You did great work in settling the
car strike. We want you to settle
the garment strike the same way if
you can. But that isn't the big prin
ciple. "We wish to point out to you that
you are the responsible head of the
city police department. As such, we
want you to know that' there is blood
shed and violence inflicted by pqlice-
jaen on striking.. garment workers, lJ3ay
We want you to go out for yourself
and see how much truth there is to
these sworn statements of women
and girls brutalized, one with a brok
en breastbone, others with swollen
lips', others marked with black and
blue finger prints of policemen's
hands on their arms."
Mrs. James W. Morrison, chairman
of committee, said today that no

tled it is a big question for all time
with Chicago women as to whether
police, under the mayor direction
shall use the kind of violence they
have lately on women and girls.
