THE OPINIONS OF THE
Editor Day Book:
What is the tongue of a shoe for?
Every pair of shoes I've bought for
tne last six. years have got tongues
But the tongue sIIds to one side al
ways. The rain comes in arid the
wind blows through where this
tongue ought to be but isn't? Will
some kind shoemaker tell us why the
tongue of a shoe is,? A Rheumatic,
Editor Day Book:
Here's one thing I like about The
Day Book. You got time for a laugh
once in a while. I remember read
ing Upton Sinclair's book, "The Jun
gle," a few years ago and I thought it
would have, been a lot better if he
could not take hims.elf so serious. He
felt so sdrry for the hogs that were
going- to be stuck and he thought it
was awful that the pigs' blood ran all
over the floors of the slaughter house.
You would have imagined he expect
ed to find that the pigs were quietly
struck idead by some electric machine
and there was no blood. I want a lit
tle Oscar and Adolf and some jokes
for mine every day. C. B. S.
To they Editor:
I have read with interest your re
cent exposures of the United Chari
ties. I admire your bold and fearless
attacks on different bogus organiza
tions and I have mailed you the cur
rent issue of the Cook County News,
in which the United Charities give
an amazing account of how they dis
pose of their money. For instance, I
notice' in the list, Visitor's Carfare,
$3,543.67. The sum looks like an
enormous sum to me to spend on
carfare , . Ed Freeman.
