ONE CENT -THE DAY BOOK- ONE CENT
BLAMES HER START ON THE
GILDED TANGO DENS
The innocent-looking and highly
gilded tango dens of the loop hotels
were at the start of the path that
led Iz"etta Marks to .what will prob
ably be her deathbed. The girl
swallowed poison after naming Dr.
Chas. Leitzman, president of the
Boston dental parlors, as the cause
of her ruination.
"I met Dr. Leitzman two years
ago," the girl said. "He took me to
many loop hitel cafes. I thought
they were all right because they
weren't of the evil-looking type I had
been taught to fear. One day he in
duced me to drink a little more than
I could stand. When I was able to
realize anything we were in a room
at the Saratoga hoteL After that,
because I thought he loved, I went
out with him several times. He has
already paid for three illegal opera
tions. I told my mother all about
it a week ago. Then I decided death
was the only solution."
Dr. Leitzman, although admitting
he had been but with the girl, denied
her charges. The girl lives at 117 E.
59th st It is probable that a war
rant will be taken out for the arrest
of Leitzman, '
STRIKERS EXPECTING AN OFFER
Pickets surrounded the shops of

BIG GARMENT WORKER STRIKE
Another big garment workers'
strike tying up the entire industry
inside of the next week or 10 days
is a possibility because of the action
of Kuppenheimer & Co. and some of
the other big firms in firing cutters
and trimmers because they had
joined the union.
Some of the men were fired by
Kuppenheimer Saturday noon and
others let out yesterday. A vote tak
en at headquarters of the Amalga
mated Clothing Workers of America,
363 W. Madison, last night, resulted
in a unanimous decision to call the
cutters and trimmers out of the-big
shops tihs morning.
So far Kuppenheimers, Alfred
Decker Cohn and Mayer Bros, are af
fected. Others may be taken out be
fore the day is over.
