An organization such as you men
tion would certainly do the work if it
was so organized that the help which
came in went entirely to the proper
sources and not toward fitting up ele
gant offices, salaries, etc. If the prop
er people were connected, so as to
make an impression favorably with
business men, a free employment bu
reau could be established which
would place hundreds of men who
otherwise could not even get a hear
ing. There are doubtless many other,
benefits which would arise as tfie
thing progressed, Should anything
of this sort be undertaken I would

Mark Twain once said: "The holy
passion of friendship is of so sweet
and steady and loyal and enduring a
nature that it will last thru a whole
life time if not asked to lend money."
Money is the rock on which many
friendships have been wrecked. A
man may be your friend; but ask him
for a loan and he freezes right up.
But not all friends are like this,

, J am a jobless man myself, married,
34 years of age, and father of 3 chil

search of work for the past four
weeks without result. Even advertis

free employment offices, such as the
Salvation Army, etc , are nothing else
than a bluff.
If such a movement of the unem

serve such an organization not only
for helping myself, but also for help

Mr, John Marshall in The Pay Book
is to the point and therefore will ask
you to consider me one of the hun

Editor Day Book I read quite a
few articles in The Day Book about
taxing vacant lots so to cause more
building. Now if that should happen
what would become of all the vacant
flats? There are thousands of va
cant flats in the city now.
Now, would it not be a better idea
if some of the old buildings in the
loop, which are firetraps, and the old
wooden frame houses in the lower
west side, which are a disgrace to
Chicago, be condemned and more
modern structures be put up in their
places? I am not an owner of vacant
lots or any other kind of property.
