HERE'S A TIP!
By Jim Manee
When lovin' folks are married1,
There are rules they follow close.
The why and wherefore of said rules,
Well goodness only knows.
We kiss the bride and throw good rice
And shoes out in the air.
Why not on invitations put i
The size of shoes you wear? 1
P. S. Gosh! Wish somebody
would toss a couple of suits at me
when I hitch up for life.
GARMENT ARRESTS CONTINUE
More than 50 girl strikers were
arrested yesterday for picketing the
plants of the ladies' garment bosses.
They were all released on bonds.
Edward Tonschek; stabbed in a
fight which occurred in the work
rooms of the Nora Shirtwaist Co.,
1861 Milwaukee av., Feb. 16, died
yesterday. The police are seeking
Louis Sess of 1042 N. Winchester av.
for the fatal fight. Sess is not a
member of the striking union.
Prospects for a settlement of the
strike at once grew dimmer yester
day when the lawyers for the gar
ment bosses failed to make good
their bluff to prove that wages in the
trade ranged from $9.75 a week to
$37.50. When one of the battery of
lawyers made -the statement before
Judge Baldwin a week ago, Clarence
Darrow, counsel for the strikers, of
fered to call the strike off if they
could prove the truth of the asser
tion. In court yesterday the attor
aeys for the bosses admitted they
could not prove that wages were
anything like what they had said.
Fair today, tomorrow and prob
ably Saturday. Not much change
in temperature. Moderate, variable
