govornmont order for 3,000,000,000
envelopes, which It is expected will
bo placed within u short time, lias
caused stationery dealers and usors
to look anxiously at their stocks.
Envelope factories liavo boon noti
fied by tho govornmont, It wos
learned hero this week, to submit at
once statements of their equipment
and estimates of ther possible output.
A rumor that -tho government In
truded to take over tho factories ont
rlght, was said by Frank Hogaii,
president of the Heco Company, to bo
"The government already gets
preferential treatment of its ordors, at
least In our plant," ho said, "and In
dustries working directly to supply
war needs aro given tho next prefer
ence. This comprises about 00 por
cent of our output. Other customers
aro takon caro of only after these
orders liavo been filled.
"An envolopo shortage is possible,
though I don't think It will bo serious,
I presume tho statement which has
been asked for, means that tho pro
posed ordor for 3,000,o'00,000 envel
opes will bo pro-rated among manu
facturers according to their capacity.
It will tako caro of tho noeds of tho

STOP THIS NUISANCE
City Council Should Pass an Or
dinance Putting a Curb on
Wind Bags in Movie
The Chicago City Council owes It
to tho million of pcupI6 who attend
moving picture theaters In Chicago to
put n curb cm tho people who disturb
others In the audience by carrying on
conversations while tho piny Is on
These know-llnlls nnd leather
lunged Idiots nro to bo found In every
theater In Chicago, to the annoyance
of cvcrbod.y else.
The Chicago City Council 20 years
ago, on the initiative of Alderman X.
M. Plotke, passed an ordinance pro
hibiting women from wearing hats in
theaters and thus obstructing tho
view of other people.
The smart Alecks laughed at this
ordinance at first especially the
smart Aleck dally press but tho city
enforced It and todnv. it Is tho rule in
every theater in America.
A good healthy fine for talkers be
tween acts In Movie theaters would
conserve much wind that Is used now
to annoy respectable theater patrons.
