Donations to the garment work-
ers' strike fund today broke all rec
ords, $409.95 being turned over to
The Day Book for the use of the
strikers. Of this $250 was from Mrs.
Frances Crane Lillie and $108.75
came from the Chicago Teachers'
Federation.
In presenting its check the Chica
go Teachers' Federation, through
Mary E. Murray, treasurer, wrote:
"While sympathy is always accept
able, it is much more acceptable
when accompanied by a substantial
token; of the expressed sympathy.
and that without delay."
"Say, it is some joy to see my
name in the paper, so I am sending
along another dollar for the strik
ers," wrote Jules Rosenwald.
The $4.10 from the Roseland Free
Speech Society was collected from
members. It promises to try again.
The F. O. F. is a fraternity of stu
dents. The Literary and Joy club
proved that charity is also one of its
tenets. The Day Book is not sure of
the correct spelling of "Sepertore
Bros." Morris Ginsburg, newsboy,
Halsted and Broadway, came all the
way down to The Day Book office to
deliver his dollar in person. "Wish
this were a thousand," wrote J. H. D.
"I know that sympathy alone won't
win strikes," wrote John Hillman
with his $2. "Quick action is neces
sary. Let everybody that's in sym
pathy pitch in and do what little they
can to help the struggle to gain vic
tory. "You can't expect mercy from a
gang of money-mad hogs. I've had
experience in several strikes, but I
never saw the employers give in
without being forced by the workers."
Llewella J. Tobinson, who sent a
quarter, is a little Socialist Sunday
school girl at Douglas institute.

During a family row in Brooklyn,
according to the New York World,
the head of the house threw a pitcher
at the stove. Thepitcher broke and
emptied its contents, $876 in family
savings, into the fire. The money
was destroyed. Maybe the h, o. L h.
had been "tipping the jug." -
