WHAT "TOM HANLON" THINKS OF THE DAY BOOK "
Everybody knows "Tqui Hanlon," Chicago's, band singer and
manager of the professional department of the Ted Snyder Co.
Well, Tom is a great admirer of The Day Book, if we may judge by,
the following letter, dated Aug. 31,: ?
Editor The Day Book:
I have noted the paragraph in last night's issue of The Day
Book, headed "Day Book Facts," in wljich you mention several
merits of said Day Book, ,such as, it being" an adless paper, inde
pendent politically, printed in "eye-saving" pe, home delivery,
Why be so modest? y '
The paragraph was very incomplete and was not fair to the"
many loyal boosters of The Day Book, inasmuch as it did not men
tion one-half of its merits.
Of course it is not necessary to tell subscribers that it is the
greatest paper in Chicago today they realize that, as soon as they
become subscribers. But for the benefit of those who do not take
the paper regularly and should, why not mention
It is the most up-to-date newspaper in Chicago.
That it very often contains news that is not found in the "Or
dinary Papers" until the 'following morning.
That it contains better cartoons than any ordinary Chicago
That it prints more humor, that its Tiumorous stories are really
humorous and are original.
That its pages can 'be. turned without disturbance or discomfort!
to yourself or other pepple. ,
That it is always novel" and. interesting and does not' fill up
columns with fine Engish, but sticks, to facts minus the fill-in of
That it has secured more subscribers through subscribers, than
any other paper or magazine o.Jxthe jnarket. ,
That irmakes fewer jnis-prints than any ordinary paper.
That it can very easily" be filed away for reference.
That it does not lay around the streets-making them dirty, nor
spread itself around the household.
That its circulation is bound to exceed all other ordinary Chi-i
That its circulation should, and undoubtedly will be, 500,000
just as soon as it becomes better"known and appreciated.
That in short, it is the smallest sized and highest prized, news
paper in Chicago.
