G. R. Durgan, a com pany pussyfoot .brought the four be fore Judge Sabath yesterday, charg ing them with swindling the company out of $3,357. One of the four, G. V. Glass, the leader, is just married. Sabath heard his story, looked at the tears running down the bride's face, then told them to come back Friday and maybe Montgomery, Ward & Co. will not get all the satisfaction they're calling for. Glass said: "Four years ago I came to Chicago, 19 years old, with nothing but a high school diploma to start me on my way. I got a job with Montgomery Ward's at $12 a week Everywhere they told me the way to get more pay was to use my head, work up new schemes to save money for Montgomery Ward's. I never worked as hard in my life as I did six months when I shaped up a new system for handling correspond ence, freight and filing. I showed it to the manager. He threw it in a corner of his desk, saying it was good but wouldn't work with Mont gomery Ward's. "A few months alter my scheme was put into operation. But my pay wasn't raised.' I wasn't' promoted. I didn't get any credit. . "I believed I had something com ing. I didn't like the way the man ager double-crossed me. "So I got men to write in fake let ters asking refunds. My brother, Harold, and John Ralston wrote in for refunds and postal orders would be sent them. The one who cashed it was allowed 40 per cent. The 60 per cent was split between me and a higher up who was willing. "William G. Franze, another Mont gomery Ward employe, played the game with us and took money. He is the man the house detective found who turned state's evidence. "They want me to pay back $2,900. I have paid them back $450, all the money I've got. The other three fel lows spent their money. I'm willing to work and pay back my share, but not theirs, too." o o CAUTION NEEDED "I have been told these tortoise shell glasses make me look scholar ly." "Then for goodness sake don't take them off near people who haven't seen you without them."
