WE VIOLATED OUR CLOSING HOUR, BUT MORE
GOOD THAN HARM IS REALLY DONE
came in after the closing time. Those
following came in Wednesday after
noon or early Thursday morning.
Possibly a few more contributions
will yet drift in. They will be cred
ited in The Day Book and turned over
to the strikers immediately. The
fund, however, is considered closed.
The former strikers of Alfred
Decker & Co. of the North Side sent
in $20.85, left from tickets which
were raffled for the benefit of the
strikers, toward the strike fund.
Ellen Gates Starr came into the
office and complained that the pen
points The Day Book uses are some
thing awful. She ought to know, for
she used the strike fund editor's pen
to endorse four checks for a total of
$34, all for the fund. Of the
money turned over by Miss Starr, $15
came from L. H. Deknatel, president
of the Mackie-Lovejoy Mfg. Co., who
has given before; $10 from Mrs. Es
ther L. Kohn, $4 from Mrs. Helen
Edwards and $5 from "A Friend."
"I wanted to see The Day Book
reach the $2,000 mark, so I went out
and got this much of the amount ne
cessary to carry you over the mark,"
explained Miss Starr.
A Forum Writer sends in another
dollar today. He has sent many dol
lars to the fund in the past month.
"It looked too bad to see my little
old 30 cents in your list yesterday,
standing directly over the five-spot
of "A Friend," wrote another Forum
Writer. "This dollar shears me of
my, wool Bah! Live or die, survive
or perish, I give my last dollar note!
I am not joking."
