Mr. Oscar De Priest,
3439 State St,
Dear Sir: I am very pleased to
have had you call my attention to the
article in the Chicago Defender in
behalf of Wallace G. Clark, Candidate
for County Treasurer and containing
among other names my own.
I not only did not attach my sig
nature to such an article but, after
reading the reprint in the Chicago
Tribune article of May 2, 1915, am un
alterably opposed to Wallace G.
Clark and his kind, seeking the suf
frage of my Racial group.
Mr. Davis of 37th and Dearborn
streets told me that he had used my
name to indorse some friend of his. I
told him that was all right, but now
as I know the Candidate to be Clark,
I withdraw the consent given Mr.
Davis. I do not think any self re
specting man of color could do other
wise. Respectfully yours,
(Signed) Herbert Turner, M. D.

of Hon. Martin B. Madden, few men

Sproul not only voted for the passage

MRS. HELENE DANEK
Successful Business Woman; President of the Woman's Pro
tective Association; Housewife; Noted Musician; Welfare
Worker; Constructive Citizen; Republican Candidate for
County Commissioner. Her Name Is 14th on the Ballot
Both Men and Women Can Vote for Her at the Prinuries,
Tuesday, April 11.
Mrs. Helene Danek, candidate in
the Republican primary for County
Commissioner, is featuring in her
campaign a pledge that if elected she
will use her influence to establish a
municipal lodging house to furnish a
clean, temporary shelter for women.
"The woman temporarily out of
funds and away from friends is in a
hard situation," says Mrs. Danek,
who is the wife of Dr. David Hill
Danek. "In desperation many of them
seem to think there is only one of two I
things for them the lake or vice. A
temporary free shelter for penniless
women, women who are decent, but
broke, is sadly needed in Chicago."
Mrs. Danek, as president of the
Woman's Protective Association, 715
County Building, an organization rec
ognizing no race or creed, has done
a great work among women, and her
friends declare that she will perfon
a most valuable service to the cca
munity as a member of the Coej
Board. The object of the Woca'i
Protective Association is to lead pro
tection, aid and human sympitij to
deserving penniless women. Ma
Danek's proudest boast is that 98 per
cent of the women who apply to lie
Woman's Protective Associatioi fcf
assistance are plaintiffs and not de
fendants. "I think that women on the Cccty
Board," said Mrs. Danek, "would be
able to bring some improvement era
in our county institutions. The ca
have done pretty well, but thewooaa
mind and viewpoint might add 1 1M
to the situation."
