TREMENDOUS EFFORTS TO END VICE CRUSADE
AS IT REACHES WEALTHY OWNERS
" Tremendous efforts have been
made to stop the vice crusade
The trust newspapers have pub
lished scare head stories about
armies of women of the tender
loin invading the residential dis-'
tricts of tlie city.
The stories were very cleverly
written, and well calculated to
alarm the decent people of Chi-cago.-
But they were not true.
The women have not' been
driven from the Twenty-second
district, and will not be.
They can stay there as long as
they like without molestation:
From now on there will be no
more wholesale raids'.
Only MEN who try to enter
the resorts and do not keep out
of the district after One warning
will be arrested.
The program of the vice cru
saders right now is this:
' The filing of ' information
against 50 or more wealthy own
ers of property,in the tenderloin.
The prosecution of these prop
The prosecution of the keepers j
of disorderly houses now under
The dismissal of the charges
against the inmates now under ar
rest. And all the stories about .great
armies of women Tjrazenly' camp
ing, in the resideritial'districts are
plain bunk.- ' ' a
Such women as are fleeing the
Twenty-second street district are
nearly all leaving the city.
Such Women as have tried to
get shelter in the residential disr
tricts are much more frightened
of the decent people, than the de
cent people need be of them.
But while the stories wefe no?
true when published they may be
come true if theyare published
often enough. "' '
If newspapers persist in sug
gesting such a plan to the women
of the segregated district the wo
men may adopt-it.
Another newspaper story that
was false when first printed, but
may become true, is that of a
great parade to the city hall plan
ned by the women of the Twenty-second
The women may adopt that
idea suggested to them by th?
