HEALTH HEAD GETS AFTER
SELLERS OF FAKE ASPIRIN
Physicians will never know how
many deaths in Chicago from grip
and pneumonia were caused this
winter by fake aspirin which drug
gists have been selling.
Health Commissioner RobertsonJ
became suspicious of some of the as
pirin being sold. His examination so"
tar has disclosed 40 drug stores
which were selling stuff as aspirin
that was nothing more than sugar
Aspirin is recommended by physi
cians as preventive of colds and dis
eases apt to follow colds. Health
authorities say the fake aspirin is a
direct menace to life in that a fatal
disease may develop while the user
believes he is taking good medicine.
The drug stores blame jobbers who
sold them the aspirin.
CLOTHING BOSSES PULLING OLD
Clothing manufacturers who, in
order to bring an end to the recent
garment strike, promised a 48-hour
week with 54-hour pay are breaking
A strike late yesterday evening by
employes of Cohn, Rissman & Co.,
418 5th av., revealed the deplorable
state of affairs. Employes say the
firm is again working its girls 54
hours a week and is not paying a
cent more than the starvation wages
it doled out before the big strike.
This condition prevails in other
shops. In order to get the workers
back to the thread and needle the
manufacturers made promises of
shorter hours with at least the same
pay and better shop conditions. The
workers, who were forced by starva
tion to strike and who thought they
had won a victory, now find that con
ditions in some places are worse than
they were before.
COUNCIL COMMITTEE AGAINST.
MOVIES FOR SCHOOLS
There will be no moving pictures
in Chicago churches and schools for
a while at least. Council committee
on buildings yesterday voted 7 to 6
against the proposition.
Movie theater owners and the
moving picture machine operators'
union were leaders in the opposition
to the ordinance. The film makers
were for it Aid. McCormick said
Ludwig P. Linick of Linick & Mel
choir, manufacturers of Elm Feature
Films, told him the moving picture
interests were willing to spend $100,
000 to get the privilege of showing
movies in schools and churches.
McCormick voted for the ordi
nance; so did Aid. John Kennedy,
who said he thought the operators'
union and the Chicago Fed. of Labor
were doing wrong in fighting the or
dinance. Chances are the ordinance,
will soon be revived.
