PRIVATE WARS. Speaking of
the taxi, war at the Lasalle hotel the,
- News says: "Private wars conduct
ed in the streets of Chicago should
not be tolerated, whether carried on
by rival taxicabs or any one else."
That's what The Day Book

THE WOMAN PAYS Can YOU
begin to "see now the vast business
structure that has been gradually
built up on the bodies of women?
Have you read the newspaper graft
stories merely for the sensational
thrill or have you seen the picture of
modern civilization these stories
show to the one who looks beyond?
Politicians and police officers collect
graft fronl hpuses of prostitution
and assignation, from saloonkeepers
who harbor the women of the un
derworld. Property owners collect
rent. National, state, county and
cty government collects taxes,
either directly or through the prop
erty owner. And the woman at the
iottom of thfi vast structure earns ,
the money in that old, old way. Tne
woman pays. She sells herself. Part
of her earnings go to the keeper of
the resort,, part to the owner of the
property, the bartender, the waiter,
the pimp, the police, the collector,
the politician or protector and on
through to the government itself.
Yes, the woman pays, and we, soci
ety, let her pay. Of all the abomina
tions on the face'of the earth noth
ing is more' degraded than the man
who lives on woman's shame.
