MERELY COMMENT
Ringling Brothers' circus is going
to give the crippled children a free
treat to their doings at the Coliseum.
We print that here as a bit of praise
fir the circus kingsT
You can never go wrong by doing
what little you can for the little un
fortunates in this world.
Washington and New York teach
ers have applied to the American Fed.
of Labor for charters.
Hope those two teacher bodies do
not have the rank mess to battle that
the Chi. teachers did when they orr
ganized to protect themselves.
Cleveland teachers, who have been
in the Federation of Labor for some
time, have been bucking the same
fight that Chi. teachers were up
against.
Cosidering that the teachers go a
long way toward making our boys
and girls, you'd think politicians, etc.,
would go out of their way to make it
easy for them.
Instead of making the road a long
and bumpy one.
Now we can sit back and watch
thp nl' haseball season run alone
without any more openers on the
way. Just natural.
Tinkers' crew of ballplayers have
a teddy bruin as a mascot The whole
outfit will "bear" watching.
Splash! The bathing beaches will
soon be ready to take care of nearly
50,000 plungers.
Which means that some of our
friends we saw plugging along the
railroad track can take their yearly
whether they need it or not.
Oh, what prospects for a clean-up
time in Chicago.
Instead of starting on April 23 and
running to May 6,
It should start Jan. 1 and end when
politics, labor troubles, general messy
affairs, etc, are cleaned up in Chi
cago. A lot of our department store
bosses are having a clean-up siege all
the time.
While the girls are plugging away
at their 6, 7, or 8 dollars per, the
owners are cleaning up fortunes.

THIS SORT OF NEWS SOUNDS
LIKE REAL SUMMER
To Alderman Eugene Block and
Theodore A. Gross belongs a great
deal of the credit for making Chi
cago one of the greatest summer
pleasure spots in the United States.
Gross is superintendent of parks and
bathing beaches and Aid. Block is
chairman of the small parks com'n.
These two men announced yesterday
that on June 1 the city's bathing
beaches would open with accommo
dations for 50,000 bathers.
Thomas Daily, director in charge
of the beaches, says a new bathing
suit for women has been "adopted
which has only three buttons. He
says there is no change in the ap
pearance of the suit even if some
thing happens to all three buttons.
There will be no censorship in
women's suits providing they are
kept within the limits of decency and
Chief Healey isn't going to object if
some of the women swimmers de-
niAoA tn His(.nri1 RtnckinES.
At the new Clarendon av. beach a
uniform charge of 10 cents is to be
made to all over 14 years of age.
This beach is the best on the great
lakes and accommodates 10,000 peo
ple. A long promenade has been
erected for visitors, who will not be
allowed to mingle with the bathers.
South Sidere are happy over the in
stallation of 2,000 lockers at the 51st
street beach, which the Chicago
Beach hotel has been trying to hog
for several years.

DEAD BABY IN STORE BASEMENT
The body of a baby-brought forth
by a mother before its time was to
day found in a toilet in the basement
of The Fair department store. The
body was found by plumbers called
to find out why the toilet was 'stopped
up. The police are looking for the
mother.
