Great is the city of ours, Chicago
is. The "Made in Chicago" week es
pecially denotes itself. Display win

fallen girls, little thieves in jail and
big crooks in congress and great of
fices, powerful newspaper trust and
voiceless mass of people. Where for

where we have a small group of great
employers and a great mass of un
employed; where the Lake Shore
drive is crazed with luxury and the
slums are crazed with want and are
driven to crimes. Great is the city
of .ours, Chicago is. There is noth
ing that can beat it under the sun.
