Who are giving to the fund The
Day Book is raising to help the cloth
ing workers struggling in strike for
a living wage?
With the exception of the contri
butions of Mrs. Frances Crane Lillie,
the money is almost all coming from
unions, union men and poor, very
poor, men and women. Men and
women come into The Day Book of
fice who have not a whole piece of
clothing on their backs; they are
poor, so poor they haven't known a
square meal for months or maybe
years. But they dig down into their
grimy pants pocket and fish up a
quarter or maybe a dollar that they
want to give toward the cause, and
then they generally won't even tell
you their name.
Of the money so far given. $273.25
is the official donations of unions,

Press and Kerr Typesetting Co., and
the Federation of Men Teachers,
wanted any publicity fuss over their
S. E. A. sent a check for $5, but in
structed that his name be kept se
cret. A member of the United Gar
ment Workers, rival union of the
Amafgamated, sent a dollar with the
caution, "Don't print my name."
Wm. Rappopart got $3.05 from a
party given at his home, 1624 N.
Wood st. B. Gelfond and J. Lesak,
along with their 50 cents apiece, gave
promise of 50 cents each each week.
