Book for ONE HUNDRED THOU
Nobody can patronize me or The
Day Book beyond the one cent each
reader pays for each copy of The
Day Book. So any man, woman or
child in Chicago who has one cent
with which to buy a Day Book is just
as big to me as Og Armour or the
multiest multi-millionaire in town.
You can't put The Day Book out
of business by criminal violence
NOW. It "is too late for that. And
if you put ME out of business some
one just as capable as I am will take
the work up where I leave off.
If The Day Book lies about any of
you at any time you can get a square
deal, and it won't cost you a cent
Any person who shows The Day
Book where it has lied or has misrep
resented the truth will befriend this
paper by pointing it out
I will correct a mistake, apologize
for an untruthful statement and go a
great length to undo any injury
But I won't suppress or adulterate
the truth to the detriment of the-pub
lie good in order to be a good fellow,
or to please the best friend I have.
That means I won't be used if I know
I don't give a darn for any party,
and I am under obligation to no in
dividual, interest or organization that
can possibly affect the publication of
news my readers are entitled to and
ought to have.
My friendship wouldn't" be worth a
darn to anybody who wants to capi
talize it I don't want any favor, any
special privilege. I am no hero wor
shiper and have no illusions about
the desirability of the society or
friendship of any of our most-mentioned
citizens. I have no desire to
pile up riches, and I want no office,"
titles, honors, medals- or baubles.
I do want more readers, but I be
lieve that will do them more good
than it will me. For I believe the pub
lication of this adless newspaper is
the most important journalistic work
ever started for the people of this
country and for all humanity.
If the big business men who want
to change the attitude of The Day
Book toward business knew enough
to know how to be really happy they
would change THEIR attitude to
ward humanity and bless The Day
Book for opening their eyes.
