ROSENWALD AND U. C. KICK ON
WIDOWS' TAG DAY
Julius Rosenwald, vice president of
the United Charities and pres of
Sears-Roebuck Co., doesn't want
widows to have a tag day. He very
much indicated this this morning
when he called up Mayor Thompson
and asked him to "please veto the
council's order permitting widows to
tag Chicagoans on Dec. 14." Rosen
wald called it "legal begging."
Thompson told Julius he would
give the matter careful considera
tion. The United Charities' executive
body will hold a special meeting
Wednesday morning to prepare to
fight the widows' tag day.
The United Charities, through its
$5,000 sup't, Eugene T. Liesfi wailed
in. pain today about council granting
dependent widows a tag day. Such
a thing will hurt the charity trust,
which depends for big salaries on the
generousness with which the public
donates to its "charity." c
The charity trust will try to get the
mayor to veto the tag day order.
Meanwhile, it is explained that the
order does not give p ermission for
every widow to go on the street to
beg on the tag day, but will let those
who participate in the tagging who
are found by the aldermen to be in
need of help and worthy.

W'lIilAtTF'CARrODY'
When France discovered last spring
that its men on the firing line were
sending shrapnel into the enemy's
ranks three times as fast as French
machinists were making them, she
asked for the best mechanic America
could send to. its aid. The appeal
called from his job W. F. Carmody,
foreman in a Chicago adding ma
chine factory. Though he didn't
know it himself, Carmody's genius
was known to almost every mechan
ical engineer in the country. Though
he worked through interpreters and
had many other handicaps to meet,
Carmody succeeded in revolution
izing methods in the French ma
chine shops, which he brought to.
