REAL HELP. After reading your
Aug. 5 publication about the GO-year-old
woman and 35-year-old son and
-the "poor" United Charities' decision,
I sure felt bad, but not bad enough
not to help with $1, since the big U.
C. can only spare 50 cents. It's too
bad about those measly grafters. I
wish each of the big fellows suffer
for the decisions they hand out to
unfortunates 50 cents, indeed, Well,
I hope 50 of The Day Book readers or
100 would each do as I've done and
start these two unfortunates on the
road to success. Shame on the
United Charities. E. G.
I got away. Then the gabby women
neighbors began to talk when they
heard of it One woman said he took
a pocketbook, another said he took a
handful of change, and many other
false stories were told by people who
are fond of creating scandals and
who cannot shovel the dirt from their
own doors. X. Y. Z., 12th and Western.
TAX TROUBLES. Why don't your
paper expose firms like the Tax Pay
ers' Alliance? These parties pretend
to stand in with the courts and send
solicitors around to property owners
who receive notice of assessments
against their property and then send
you a bill for services after they de
lay your improvements two or three
years. I am a poor man and signed
up for one of these sharks and now
they threaten to sell my property if
I don't pay them for what they claim
to have saved me. My assessment is
pretty high and I don't see how any
poor man should be" compelled to pay
for what the Board of Local Improve
ments should do free. Trusting you
will print this so others can write
their experiences. Mike Smith.
THE BOYS' KICK. The boys of
our neighborhood are being continu
ally picked on. The other day a boy
of our neighborhoodl, accompanied
by two other boys, was on his way
to get apples outside of the city and
stopped into a store and handed the
storekeeper a Canadian dime. Re
ceiving two nickels he came out and
was soon followed by the storekeeper
and his wife, who were Jews. The
boy started to run and was chased
by the owners of the store down one
rlley and up the next until he finally I end to the gainin
Jew of cosmopolitan ideas, and feel
ings, I wish to offer a few remarks
on tie solution of the "Jewish ques
tion." The mind of the Europeans are
ever haunted with the "Jewish spec
ter.'- They claim that the Jew will
not intermarry, will not cross" his
blood nor his ideas with his fellow
men of other races.
The fact is that the Jew has mixed
his blood and has absorbed the ideas
and assimilated the habits of his sur
roundings whenever and wherever he
has been given the freedom and lib
erty to mingle with his fellowmen.
He has been charged with being a
money maker essentially. That
charge is untrue, and were it so it
would be something in his favor. Is
it not true that we early imbibe the
idea that success spells the accumu
lation of wealth?
Is it not a fact that men like
Rockefeller and Carnegie are held up
as models to children at school?
Then why consider the carrying out
of your own highest ideals by the
Jews as wrong? Because it is to the
interest of the ruling classes to
spread the gospel of racial hatred
and animosity among the ruled
If the Jews are merely money-getting
animals it is because for long
ages the hand of persecution gave
them no other outlet, but forced them
into the field of commerce. Why
blame a certain body of people for
competing when the social system is
competitive? If you wish to put an
