did not cater to them they would
very soon go out of existence. The
same might be said of basement
salesrooms. They are there because
the masses patronize them. The
masses, like the voters, are getting
what they demandask for, vote for,
with the result that they are going
down, down, down in the scale, land
ing them in poverty, ignorance, filth
and disease.
If there was a demand for educa

nest desire for educational improve
ment by a scattered few, then educa
tional schools would spring up, mu

"younger set" may gather and dance

The dancing floors will be located 1
in central spots in the various dis
tricts to form social centers for the
At the dances, which will be given i
once a week, a small admission will
be charged and perhaps a wardrobe
fee. This and the sale of soft drinks
should make the halls self-paying.

Women wro are proud of this land
of the free and home of the brave
must not show their patriotism by
wearing the American flag on their
stockings. This is an edict issued
by the American Flag Day Ass'n in
a meeting.
The club is going to ask State's
Att'y Hoyne to pinch the women who
wish to impress their patriotism on
the male citizens. The custom of
wearing the old glory on the leg
above the ankle was started in Lon
don, where it became a rage. Ob
serving people say that it has spread
to Chicago.
Thfc use of the flag on advertise
ments, on labels and on the stage is
declared against, but the clubwomen
have set their foot down jail for
the woman who shows too much patriotism.
Presbyterian ministers who have

vided for an independent quiz to
gather dope for the club on mem
bers' divorce cases.
