SOUTH PARKS POLICE SHIVER
WHEN NOT ALLOWED TO
WEAR WINTER COATS
With the mercury threatening a re
treat to zero, south parks policemen
have been compelled to be on duty
these nights attired in their summer
uniforms. Permission to wear their
winter coats was denied them by
South Parks Police Capt. Theo. Rich
ards, members of the force declared.
With knees knocking together in
complaint of lack of shelter these
policemen stand and envy city police
men, street car men and other work
ers who pass by in heavy, warm top-1
coats.
John Barton Payne, one of the five
men of wealth who compose the
south parks commission, rides down
Miphigan blvd. in his heavy overcoat
and a heated limousine and pays no
heed to the protector of his safety
who stands shivering on the corner,
forbidden the comfort of an over
coat. Payne is not the only governor of
south ;parksv who rides in a car, his
colleagues on ttie commission, L. B.
Patterson, Chas. R. Hutchinson,
John Bain and Albert Mohr, have all'
sufficiently large bank balances or
stockyards holdings to permit them ,
to own a flock of electrically-heated
closed motor cars and all the fur
oVercoats tthey desire.
Whatever extra wearing apparel
South Parks Policeman Jim Jones
has donned to offset the drop of 50
degrees in the" temperature since last
week he has put on under his blue
uniform. And some of these officers
are said to be wearing two setsSf
wooleris. They do this quietly, fear
ing a reprimand for lack of neat ap-'
pearance on duty if it were .discov
ered that they had "puf'em on
double."
Capt. Richards is reported to, have
answered the plea of his men for per
mission to wear their winter coats by
saying they couldkeep warm by
moving around a bit more lively. .
The men appealed to J. F. Foster,
superintendent of the south parks,
but got no .satisfaction, they say.
South parks policemen draw the
lowest pay of any guardians 'of the
law in Chicago. Men entering 'the
service! get but $75 a month.
- Men on the south parks force are
a hardy lot and no cases of pneti-
monja from exposure to the weather
have been reported.
