Quick as a flash, Chicago respond
ed to the war call today.
While other cities have paraded
and met in masses, Chicago has been
cool in the prospect of war with Ger
many. But the calling out of the "Dapper
First" the national guard unit Chi
cago has always offered quickly
when trouble threatened, snapped
the city to its place as a leader of
the country in war,' just as it stands a
big figure in business during peace.
Every man who went down to
Cuba, who tasted of the bitter Phil
ippines, who went to the border, and
every young fellow who has just been
waiting for real trouble, not the
newspaper variety of war, stood at
attention today and marked time as
the martial fever gripped the b'lski
est city in the world.
