New York. Four Years ago Lottie
Gross married. Her husband knew
that she had served a term in Moy--amensing
for shopllfttDg. But she
promised him and she meant it
that she would never steal again. And
then the baby came. "I wanted pret
ty things for her." said Lottie. "And
so I went back to the old game. If
I couldn't quit for the best man In
the world 1 guess I never can quit.
Stealing Is like a disease except that
it can't be cured."
That's about what the detectives
think. Once a man or woman gets
well started at stealing and be or
she is a thief for life.
"The big stores lose more by am
ateur shoplifters than by profession
als," said D. J. Botter, manager for
the criminal department of a detec

trifling thing, that catches her eye
and gets away with It. Then she
comes back and keeps on coming
back. They never let up."
Cotter takes the professional thief
catcher's view of the defense of klep

are just thieves. They get started to

just steals. She travels most of the

Washington. July 14. Warning to

that It la an agency for the spread

United States public health service.
The statement points out that many
smokers, on purchasing a cigar and
before clipping off the end, place It
between their lip while paying for
the purchase. "This would seem," tbe
statement declares, "to be a very ef
fective method of bringing about the
Interchange of mouth secretions, and
possibly the spread of Infection. It
1 suggested that the use of such au
tomatic clipper should be avoided by
the public on account of the possi
bility that disease may be spread by
them by reason of the nature and
manner of their use."
