SCHOOL SOLDIERSThose in
terested in the success of military
training in Chicago public schools
might make 'more headway it Jake
Loeb wecenot at the head of the
school board. The impression pre
vails i that Big Business wants con
trol of the public schools in order to
use them as training schools for fac
tory hands. Loeb is considered by
many to be working out the policy
of Big Business. Workers are apt to
suspect and fear that the military
training is but a part of the big game
which exploits the parents now And
hopes to exploit their children.-It is
possible that Capt Steever may have
one, thing In mind and the head of
the school board quite another. The
co-operation of parents "is necessary
in order o make military training
in the schools successful, and to get
that co-operation parents must be
free from suspicion of the motives of
the advocates of military training.

should come and tell us how to build
good bridges and ask ua to pay him
much cash for the advice what
would we tell him?
Observe Chicago today. The
prophets of 1907 who promised reha
bilitation, reorganization and 100 per
cent efficiency in service, routing and
traffic distribution on traction lines,
are again telling the city how it can
get Improved service.
The same men and the same news-'
papers who solved the 1907 traction
problem are again solving it.
The same community heroes pf
efficiency who in 1907,rescued the
straphanger from straphanging are
again rescuing the straphanger.
Do we hear somebody whispering
that bankers, promoters and stock
and. bond jobbers have a bigger say-v
so In Chicago traction reorganiza
tions than the straphangers?
