"I have seen the affidavits of wom
en and girls strikers "at the Immi
grants' Protective league," said Miss

MOVIE SCHOOLS AND DAILY
NEWS RAPPED TOGETHER
Zipp! Zowie!
Such a slap in the face for the Chi
cago Daily News! )
Right from City Prosecutor Harry
B. Miller!
filler announced today that war
rants were out for alleged fake
schools for moving picture operators.
The warrants were placed in hands
of Chicago av. station police this
morning. It is the first step, says
Miller, in a campaign to sweep the
city of the fakes.
The next step may be an order to
the Daily News to cease accepting of
questionable advertising.
The people who have come before
city authorities to complain that they
were bunked by the movie operator
schools told that they read the ads
of the schools in the Daily News.
The schools taught pupils to be
movie operators all right, in most in
stances, but when the pupils got their
diplomas they found a cit yordinance
required that no one could be a
movie operator unless he served an
apprenticeship of either six months
in a Chicago theater or one year in
an out-of-city theater. The schools
must have known that A diploma
was worthless because one could not
get a job with it and because any one
who served the six months' appren
ticeship knew as much as the movie
school pupil did.
Warrants were issued for three of
ficials of the Coyne National Trade ,
school, 45 E. Illinois, one of the ac- 1
cused schools.
Berlin, via. London. To Oct. 18
$2,067,250,000 or 68 per cent of total
had been paid on third German war
loan.
