MRS. DEAN OWES NO THANKS
TO DELCO LUNCHROOM
One cannot Have faith in human

This fact was proven yesterday
whten H. R. Pow, manager of the
Delco lunchroom, 54 W. Washington
st, caused the arrest of Mrs. Beulah
Dean, because she was unable to pay
her check.
In vain Mrs. Pean jpleaded with
jihri for ah hour to go home and get
the moh6y she had left oh her bureau.
She even offered to leave her glasses
as security. Pow looked at the
glasses and called the police. The ar
rest wag made only after he had
promised to be on hand to prosecute
this morning.
The same wagon which hauled
loads ol striking waitresses to the
central detail station carried the old
woman to the South Clark st station.
The Delco lunchroom used to be
owned by Charles Knab, an anti

against her if ydu say so." Thfe re
porter wouldn't say so. He was cu
rious to know whether or not Pow
had the nerve to prosecute the case.
