WHITE PLAQUE DEATH BATE FOB
Gives as One
The great white plague is losing its
grip on Chicago, according to Health
Commissioner Bobertson's annual "re
port on death causes which is nearly
ready for publication.
Tuberculosis Is listed as tho cause of
2,652 deaths in 1920. This, is 572 less
than in 1919 and 1,175 less than in
1918. A combination of circumstances
which, in the opinion of heatlh authori
ties, include prohibition,, cleaner air,
and the removal by death from "flu"
in 1918 of many sufferers from tuber
culosis accounts in part for the' big
saving in lives. The 1921 reports so
far show a. still further drop. t
Credits Aid Dispensaries.
"The marked decrease in the tuber
culosis death rate in Chicago," Dr.
Robertson said, "is dno in a
large part to the work done in our tu
berculosis aid dispensaries. 'During
1920 we handled 32,000 cases. In 1915
there were 10,000 cases aided. We-got
hold of thousands of hidden, .cases,
treated them as contagious, separated
families, ' used sano practical methods
for cure. WIth a little more money we
could keep the rate going down.

United States, but not so markod as
here. This is duo in part x to prohibi
tion.. ' People are gcltinc more sleep
A brief summary is given, of the,ttnd " ot ""K w drinking so

mestic and personal service into indus
trial and clerical occupations during
tho war period.
In commenting on the publication Dr.
George E.jHaynes of the "Department of
Labor said, "Tho facts given in this
seeond study of Negro labor have been
very carefully gathered, collated and
analyze?!, The tables and figures and
other data while limited in quantity
and scope are accurate and probably
the most available and almost the only
material covering these problems."

would tell her to watch for a quarter

Mrs. Tranka 'said her husband left
her last week after quitting -his job.
Tho latter told the court ho was driven
to it, but promised tp go back and pro
vide for her.
"And forget the""moon," was Judge
Holmes' parting advice-to Mrs. Tranka.

A similar movement was started lost

TWO COLORED BURGLARS MADE
THEDZ GET AWAY WITH
GOODS WORTH MORE
Jesse Banks, 21, 3100 Ellis avenue,
and Murray Bowdcn, 18, 3738 Prairio
avenue, colored burglars, have con
fessed to committing fifty burglaries in
which they got goods valued at $50,000."
Tho pojico havo recovered $25,000
worth of the property.
At ono time it was contended that
colored" men would not steal anything
but chickens, hams or a five shoat,
a bottle or a jug or whisky or some
red-eyed moonshine, but it seems that
Messrs Banks and -Bowden will conr
pare most favorably with the high class
gentlemanly whito burglars who always
rob and plunder on a large scale.
