MR. JULIUS ROSENWALD.
Listenaminit! A friend of Julius Ro
senwald tells us the mail-order mil
lionaire reads The Day Book every
night. Hence we want to give Ju
lius a little tip.
You have been lai'ded highly for
offering, conditionally, $50,000 to the
Chicago Woman's club. Alright,
letum laud. But we know where you
can get a lot more lauds which wihV
be more laudy than this $50,000 laud.
Giving money away is easy if
you've got it to give. But giving it to
places where it will be used to great
benefit is another thing. This is not
a slap at the Chicago Woman's club.
We have already said: "Go ahead and
let folks laud the $50,000 to that or
ganization." But what we are getting at is this.
In case you have another $50,000,
more or less, to give away, we want
to mention the striking garment
workers. They need dough They
gotta eat and they gotta have
warmth in their homes. Eats and
fuel cost dough. That's the dough
Honest to Pete, Julius, we'll laud
you if you hand some coin to the
striking garment workers. They
will appreciate it and it is well worth
the while. Ask Frances Crane Lillie!
Sidney Hillman has asked The
Day Book to appeal to strike fund
contributors not to stop sending in'l
WHAT STUDENT - SOLDIERS
COULD LEARN. There are hun
dreds of thousands of boys in the
United States who are thirsting foi
educational advantages which they
cannot get That they may make
their livings they have to quit school
at any point from the fourth grade
upwards and never return.
They need vocational training. They
need to study agriculture, mining,
factory work, railroading, metal
working, stock raising, rural teach
ing, wood working, forestry, plumb
ing, steamfitting, running engines,
carpentry, bricklaying, blacksmith
ing a hundred or a thousand things
which common schools, academies
and colleges cannot or do not give,
or which they cannot get because
they must make a living.
Why cannot the United States gov
ernment take these boys and train,
them as soldiers and as citizens at
the same time?
Why cannot the nation give these
boys hundreds and hundreds of
thousands of them the education
they need while serving in the army?
Great idea worth thinking about
LIFE WAS JUST ONE DRY GOODS
BOX AFTER ANOTHER
Jud Wilkins, one of our oldest and
most respected citizens, departed this
.life last Friday. He left behind him
five dogs, two children and the whole
earth. For many years his business
has been that of transferring himself
from one drygoods box to another.

accompanied our party on the trip
said she wondered if the sausages
were made on the ground floor.-pvl.
