Women of Irish Sympathy Rip
British Flag From Theater
Nine, Wearing MacSwiuey Button**. Hoist Ladder
Against Wall of the Capitol and Cheer as One
Snatches Banuer; Man Who Protests Is Routed
A group of nine women walked down
Broadway just before 1 o'clock yester?
day afternoon and halted under the
canopy of the Capitol Theater at Fifty
fir8t Street. They wore buttons bear?
ing a picture of the late Terrencc Mac
Swiney. The women turned their face?
toward h British flag which was hang?
ing from the canopy along with flags of
the other Allies in the World War in
observance of Armistice Week,
"That flag must come down," one of
the women cried. "It Is an outrage to
put up a flag like that."
She seiwd a tall stepladder that was
Ifaning against the front of the build?
ing and, with her companions, drsggcd
it to a spot under the British flag.
Within fifteen seconds she was bal?
anced on the top of the ladder, twenty
rive feet in the air, and yanking at the
flap, while the other women cheered.
Just as the theater electrician
emerged from the lobby the woman tore
the flag in half, but was unable to pull
it down.
At the same time Major Philip T,
Case, house manager, hurried from hie
office in the theater in response to a
message from a breathless page, whe
said there was a riot on the sidewalk
On the way out Major Case, who be?
sides that title, has a service record
to prove that he was wounded in th<
right nrm at Belleau Wood, enroun
tered a man evidently in sympathy with
the nine women.
The man wanted to know what the
theater meant by hanging out such a
flag, and ?aid, according to Major Case,
that "all the. police in New York City
could not keep that flag up there."
"This theater is celebrating Armis?
tice Week," Major Case inforoipd the
man, "and the flag that you want taken
down is the flag one of our Allies
in the World War. You are demand?
ing a thing un-American and entirely
impossible. Another British flag is go?
ing up immediately, and we shall see
that it stays there."
"Oh, well, I'm something of a sol?
dier myself; maybe a better one than
you are," the man replied, and drew
back his arm as if to strike Major
Major Cafe went into action and
routed his adversary. Policemen of?
fered to arrest the flag party,,but Major
Case persuaded them not to und the
?women departed. Major Case put \?p
another British flag.
"Perhaps they will try to tear that
down," ho said, "but if there is any
such attempt reserve? will come from
the Forty-seventh Street station. As an
American soldier this thing hur?,.- me
personally and I want, to say also that
I am not anti-Irish, and the theater
Is not. Only lasa week we had an
Irish program."
Let Down Prices Step

Prices must be let down step by step
in a Quietly conducted deflation, ac?
cording to J. H. Tregoe, treasurer of
the National Association of OreditMen.
who addressed 33*000 members of that
institution Saturday. He asserted that
the ration is pa?\jir.g through its crit?
ical period because of unwise indulgen?
cies, thoughtless practices and abuse of
credit. Mr. Tregoe said in part:
"The ration ??. pas.-ing through a crit?
ica! period?a iierio-1 brought about by
unwise indulgencies, by thoughtless
practices and by abus.e of credit. The
inflation of credit, currency, buying
and labor produced a peak in prices
which was one of the most dangerous"
confronting business.
"We constantly pointed -his out dur?
ing the inflation p?;riod.
"We must anticipate unemployment
for unemployment comes when labor is
being deflated, and deflation of labor is

Chatterei Blames the Wrong On<

Don't say a iking is .*o or so,
Until you positively know.

Suspicion is one thing and knowl?

3ome one had taken all the fat hickory
nuts that bad fallen from tho big hick?
ory tree which he claimed a.-- his own,
b ? t.. wh oh 'no had no real right.
Tuere had been some fat hickory nuta
among the brown loa-, es or, the
ground, and now there were none.
Those leaves had boon pu,lled over by
some one and every fat nut taken.
Who had done it? Chatterer thought
he knev He didn't Uno?-, he ju.-'t sus?
Hut suspicion was enough for Chat?
terer. He flew into a dreadful rage and
off he started toward that part of the
Green Forest in which he knew hi- nie
cousin, Happv Jack the 'ira-, Squirrel,
!.. id,
"He stole *;em'. He stole them!
He's a thief, and I'll tell him so. I'll
get back those fa1 hick ry nuts if it
takes me all the fall!" he cried at ho
hurried through the Green Forest.
He found Hani-;. Jack hunting for
; some chestnuts. Happy ,'iae'h had his
i new winter coft, and he looked very
I handsome, very handsome indeed. His
; tail, which through the summer liad
looked ill kept and bedraggled was now
?handsomer than ever?so big and
broad and such a beautiful slivery gray
i that ?! v as a tail for any one to he
?proud of. Chatterer always has neer.
;, bit jealous of that tail of Happy
Happv ,'a<-k.

' Happy .lack, and he spoke sharply. He
I d dn't like being railed a thief.
"You know well enough v. hat fa?

"I don't know what you are talking

I "You do!"
! "I don't1."
; "You do!"
? "I don't!"
1 "You're a thief! "
"I'm not a thief!" By this time
' Happy Jack was quite a? angry as hi?
! small cousin. "I haven't seen your fat

i about here he wears a red coat, not a

Now, you know Chatterer is guilty
"I'm not a thief!'' By this lime
Happy Jack was quite as angry
as his small cousin.
of stealing whenever he has a chance,
but he is just as quick to resent b ?il g
called a thief a a if he were honest.
This remark of Happy Jack's made
angrier than ever. He tva? so angry
th'? t he actually stir^ered b ? ;. ?
tried to make his tongue go faster than
it could. He called Happy Jack every
bad name lie could think of, ai ; if there
are any Chatterer doesn't knot\ it is
b< cause ! e hasn't t eard them.
"Do you mean to tell me that you
haven't been over to my pr -.at?' hick?
ory "-ce tV;s afternoon?" demanded
Chatterer, planting himself squarely in
front of Happy Jack.
Happj, Jack suddenly looked inter?
ested. "Have you got ?> private hickory
tree'' Where is it"" he asked.
"You know veil cnoug'.i v. here it is!"
snapped Chatterer. "Now, what have
you done with those th- nut:
"I haven't done anytVing with them
because I haven't <*ee:i Jhem," declared
Happy Jack. "You se,-, I've been too
busy right here hunting for chestnuts
to think about anything else."
"And that is the truth." spoke up
Peter Rabb-.t, "for I have watched 1
all afternoon"
Chatterer began to wonder if he had
?suspected the wrong on?.
