The Strike Fund Editor received a
shock today when he opened a let
ter enclosing a check for ten signed

"I have never permitted myself to
be "tagged" on any tag day Chicago
has ever had. I have never before
contributed to any 'worthy cause'
that has been boosted by profession
al boosters," wrote Jules Rosenwald.
"I never give to beggars nor to the
United Charities that spend 70 per

this $10 to The Day Book because I
know every cent will go to help the
strikers."
Nick Ferrera, newsboy at Ran
dolph and Wabash, northeast corner,
who sells Sirs. Francis Crane LHlie

John Patterson, Public Forum
writer who sent in $5 "From Seven
Cood Fellows," sent a Forum letter
along with the five. The letter will
appear in The Public Forum.
"Here is my eleventh dollar toward
the good cause since the garment
strike started," wrote J. R. "I just
can't bear the thought of the rough
and bloody work of the sluggers."

"I think all Forum writers should
give what they can spare," said Miss

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION
BACKS UP ON POLICE LIST
The civil service commission has
backed up another block: Yesterday
it re-posted the captains' eligible list
which it formerly held was irregular
and unlawful. Police lieutenants
complained and threatened court
action. Other court actions against
the commission recently have result
ed unfavorably for the commission.
