take place in the back garden of one
of the Wilmette members, but all Who
attend the christening will probably
)iave to find out for themselves what
particular back yard it Is. Thesixact
Spot of the-christening of this history
making First iiSy-Book club will
probably be somewhere betwixt the
beans and the clothesline. The club
may decide to post the Wilmette sta
tion agent in advance, so that, If .the
crowd is large, no disappointments
will ocgut. But there will be no spe
cial trains, and Bertie Taylor of the
Tribune will in all likelihood NOT
attend, but spend the day is Glengko,
cultivating his poppies and lilies. The
quack press is hereby given a cor
dial Invitation and its reporters will
be given the best there is, all home
grown stuff, stuff that has never seen
the "loop." The club hopes The Day
Book will give a full report of the
christening. The quack press won't
recognize this christening. It won't
figure as news in the quack press.
Why? Because the event will REAL
LY HAPPEN. It-will be a REAL piece
of NEWS. GOOD NEWS at that This
m ittfelf bars it from the pages of the
quack press. Very truly yours,
Alfred Cordon..
P. S. Forgot to say Our club
thinks it will take a year more for
the quack press to "recognize" The
Day Book. In a year they'll have to.
But there'll be one more year's trem
bling. Then they'll fall all over them
selves "recognizing" Editor N. D.
Cochran and his Day Book. It will be
in this order: Andy, Vic, Trib, J. K.,
and then the "afternoon" scramble.
Our club will have another blow-out
then. Well, I must get back to water
ing my cabbages. A. Q.
