TOWNSEND, JEWELER TO RICH
FOLKS, TAKES OWN LIFE
John S. Townsend, jeweler to
wealthy collectors of antiques, con
noisseur of art, committed suicide
yesterday because the march of com
mercialism was ruining his life work
Into his shop at 1554 Wabash the
elite of Chicago had come to buy
jewelry. The Pullmans, Palmers,
Hibbards and Fields purchased their
baubles of gold and precious stones
In the days when Townsend's was
in its prime the little shop was .at
the edge of Chicago's most exclusive
residential section. But business vio
lated the precinct of mansions and
Townsend soon found his shop nes
tling among automobile salesrooms.
Yesterday he sold his shop to a com
pany of auctioneers, then went into
a back room and shot himself.
HURRAH FOR THE LAKE!
Good old Lake Mich, came into its
own yesterday when the heat caused
some 150,000 to scoot to sand or wa
ter at such points of our shore as the
former presidents of the Illinois Cen
tral overlooked in grabbing the lake
Between fitful rainstorms, thou
sands sought cool spots in the park. ,
MISS WILSON HAS BACKING IN
FIGHT FOR PUBLIC FORUMS
Make wide the doorway of the school
Around whose sill the millions wait,
The cradle of the common rule,
The forum of a stronger state
Make broad the bar, and big appear
The questions clamorous to be
And let the final jildges hear,
Themselves, the causes they de
cide. Write bold the text for age to read
, The lesson not discerned by youth;
And raise the altar of a creed
Whose only article is Truth.
Though fair and dear the ancient
Wherein the burniing thought was
Pour not the New World's glowing
Into the patterns of the past
Whatever channels lead apart
The currents of the lives of men, .
The blood that left the Common
Shall leap with common pulse
By Wendell Phillips Stafford.
Washington, July 3. Miss Mar
garet Wilson can feel she has the law
with her in her fight to establish
community forums throughout the
The above poem read by her at a
forum meeting here had that signif
icance, since it was written by Jus
tice Wendell Phillips Stafford of the
district supreme court
This court appoints the very
school board that has refused to al
low the use of district public schools
as meeting places. In a way, the
learned justice administered a re
buke to the school board.
