FRANCES CRANE LILLIE, WHO
STARTED STRIKE FUND
Frances Crane Lillie, who has do
nated $1,250 to The Day Book strike
Fund.
Mrs. Lillie had made the $250 a
week for five weeks offer to several
trust newspapers. She was turned
down. Then she took it up with The
Day Book and the fund was started
the next day. As the total of the
strike fund will show, Mrs. Lillie's
idea was a good hunch. She de
serves many thanks, as do all donors
to this fund. Her first $250 was
turned over to the strikers just be
fore the fund was started and is not
included in The Day Book fund total.
