city, conditions were satsifactory,
He said -he would have complaint
to make to the mayor about some
I other halls.
The principle object of the pro
bation omcers win De to prevent
the presence at public dance Jialls
o(f girls under 16 and boys undei
18 who are unaccompanied by
parent or guardian.
Dance halls are held . responsi
ble for the dependency, of many
children that become ward- of
the juvenile court, and it is urged
that proper supervision, which
has proven a -success where tried
by the Juvenile protective As
sociation, will tend to decrease
the number.
Speaking before the Austin
I Woman's club, Prof.' Allen 1-1 o-
Den oi tne university or cnicago,
field secretary of the Juvenile
Protective Association, declared
that public dance halls, summer
I excursions and poverty were the
I main causes of juvenile delin
quency. He said that statistics
showed there were 86,000 youths
under 19 years of age in the pub
lic dance halls nightly, the girls
ranging from 14 to 18 years, and
the boys from 16 to 18.
For the present, at least, ac
cording to the weather man, the
cold wave has left Chicago, and
while no one need fear sunstroke
for a few months, moderate tem
perature will prevail.
The only sad persons are the
coal men, whose neat little plan
, to raise the price of fuel because
of railroads to deliver consign
ments, and difficulty about mak
ing local deliveries, both excuses
due to the cold weather, hase been
"knocked'into a cocked hat," aca
demically speaking.
While they did, it is alleged,
take advantage of the zero
weather to gouge the public, in
some instances, the city sealer
promises 'prosecutions in every
case where there is evidence that
patrons have been sold short mea
sure coal while payjng for what
.they didn't get. It is charged
that some coal dealers and deliv
ery men combined to impose upon
poor applicants to the county
agent's office, and investigation
is to be made to secure evidence
against them.
The case of Max Siegel, driver
for the Columbia Coal Co., was
continued in Maxwell court yes
terday in order that Siegel may
be tried with twenty others to be
summoned. Drivers and compa
nies are to be made party defend
ants. Siegel, who lives at 560 W. 12th
street, is said to have delivered
640 pounds of coal to Mrs. John
Hruby, 1322 W. 18th place, Jan.
11, when 1,000 pounds had been
bought by the county for her.
"Speaking around the world"
seems more and more feasible and
if you wake up some morning and
find you are 'talking to yourself,
don't be alarmed. London can
phone to Berlin now.

Wonder why men are always
measured in their stocking feet?
