the snaky patrol slunk away back on
Dearborn street, slowly along to
Washington street, and there another
officer reached out and nabbed I al
most said Knabbed a girl nab and
Knab are growing sjnonomous and
then the snaky patrol slowly wended
its way to Clark street, but there
wasn't any girl there, so it slowly
roamed back to Dearborn in the hope
of picking up another girl who might
have been sent out, but it was disap
pointed and then it roamed around
again on Monroe street to catch an
other girl off her guard, but there
wasn't any there, so the snaky patrol,
having accomplished the purpose for
which it set out, to pick up girls off
the street who were guilty of not a
single offense against any law, made
its way back to its destination.
I felt ashamed of that snaky patrol.
I felt ashamed that we who pay taxes
to provide such patrols and the men
who guide them about, should have
our money used to arrest, without
cause, our own sister workers.
And in less than twenty minutes I
saw it back again, the snaky patrol
that nabs girls who are doing noth
ing, and this time Officer No. 2041,
who is quite young and who also
seems to have little love for the con
temptible job he has to do, was sta
tioned right where he could watch
the girl picket so she couldn't get
away, and as the snaky patrol noise
lessly completed its round of Knab
restaurants, Officer No. 2041 reached
out and nabbed the picket just as she
tried to run away.
Of course there are powers higher
up in the police department who are
authorizing the snaky patrol to steal
around in this quiet fashion and or
dering policemen willing or unwilling
to nab I almost wrote Knab again
girl pickets who are doing nothing,
but you see these policemen higher
up are like the snaky patrol, they
keep under cover only when they can
help capital in its fight against labor.
And if Dudley Taylor, Knab's law
yer, is really sincere in his statement I
tint the courts do not adequately help
capital, he surely should have fol
lowed that by a tribute to the help
that the police who send out this
snaky patrol lend to the side from
which Taylor gets his bread and but
ter. However, this is the story of a
snaky patrol.
New York, July 24. "New York is
dancing on the brink of hell and I
shudder to think how many well
shod, twinkling feet are going to car
ry their owners over into the abyss,"
declared Evangelist "Bob" Jones to
day. "The only difference between
Manhattan and hell is that Manhattan
is surrounded by water."
Evangelist Jones has been busy for
a few days investigating reports of
iniquity here. He sums up his find
ings in addition to the above as fol
lows: "If God had meant women to dress
as they do, he surely would have cov
ered their backs with hair.
"It isn't any wonder that divorce
detectives go to these modern dances
to pick up a trail.
"Women have converted 'the new
freedom' into license.
"New York needs a great prophet
to make character fashionable
