NEWSIES TO MEET FOR-ACTION
AGAINST "EATING" PAPERS
Chicago newsboys are tired of
"eating" newspapers. The trust
press game of forcing newsies to
take more papers than they can sell
has gone about far enough, the
newsies claim, and the Newsboys'
Protective union, No. 14567, will hold
a special meeting Sunday afternoon
at 2:30 to decide on some action.
The members will then decide
whether or not they want to pay for
papers in advance. The Daily News
has been working a scheme of mak
ing newsies pay for News a week in
advance. Then if a rainy day came
along and sales dropped down the
newsie was the loser.
Boys not belonging to the Chicago
Newsboys' union will have a chance
to join for $1 initiation fee and 75
cents per month.
