WRITES OF OLD TIMES
IN THE PRES8 CLUB.
John E. Wllkle, former chief of the
United States Secret Service, and
popular assistant to tho president of
tho Chicago Surfuco Lines, was ono
of tho ablest nowspapcrinen In the
United States. Ho Is n past president
and is an honorary member ot tho
Press Club of Chicago.
Ono of the pleasant features of the
anniversary dinner given by tho Press
Club of Chicago, at tho clubrooniB on
tho evening of Nov. 17, to tho found
ers of tho club, celebrating tho for
tieth anniversary, was a letter from
John E. Wllkle, read by Clyde A. Mor
rison. The letter was received with
great enthusiasm nnd was as follows:
Nov. 17, 1919.
My Dear Mr. Morrison: I deoply
regret that It will bo Impossible for
mo to bo present at tho dinner celo
brntlng tho fortieth anniversary of tho
Press Club. I am keenly appreciative
of tho honor convoyed by your com
mittee's Invitation, and my melan
choly ovor my Inability to bo present
took on deeper tlngo whon I grasped
tho significance of tho fact that this
was to bo n "complimentary" dinner.
Entirely apurt from tho attraction that
lies in the opportunity to renew the
associations and friendships of years
Bono by, thoro was this very substan
tial jab dealt to tho high cost of living
by tho promise of food without prico.
On tho theory that my loss will bo
your gain, you will doubtless feel that
you aro not only "In" tho price of tho
dinner, but you and your follow mem
bers and frionds will havo been spared
tho ordeal of listening to n few' ro
marks from tho undersigned. And I
feel now that that will bo some com
It would do my oyes good to look
again upon tho friendly faces of tho
old familiar days. I particularly would

Tod Cowlos without whiskers. Tod

as ho lived In Chicago and If, os I un

though I would not go to tho longth of
suggesting that tho honorablo and von

Thoro will bo two ox-presidents
with you I hope, John Fllnn and Joo
Dunlop, each having dono his share
In tho old days to make tho Press
Club famous und successful.
I think tho oldtlmers will agree that

In tho speech which I might have
niodo had I been present I would hnvo
been glad to pay a tribute to the two
ex-presidents of the club John I'llnn
and Joe Dunlop for their share In
making tho Pross Club of their day
successful and famous. I could not
possibly let tho occasion pass without
handing a veiy large bouquet to our
distinguished fellow member and
notnblo cosmopolitan figure, Kerd.

word ulvaH has been a standby of

tho days when thero was a constant

novor a tlmo when wo got Into difll

to "como through" handsomely.

ovonlng with Opia Head and Col. Vis

no words of mlno could express ade
quately tho esteem and voueratlou I
hold for theso raro friends and com
panions of Press Club days. God bless
I hope the now plans for tho Press
Club will insuro Its survival and that
tho present generation of newspaper
and literary men in Chicago will ac
