A charity corporation which appar
ently has the United Charities skin
ned at its own game will have to an
swer the chargesof-sthe state of Illi
nois before Nov. 20 or run the risk
of having its charter revoked. The
state asks for a $25,000 fine.
Action is based on the report of
the Curran commission of the legis
lature, which calls the Children's Na
tional Tuberculosis society a "misdi
rected charitable organization insti
tution" run as a "commercial propo
sition." The following is taken fromthe re
port of the committee:
"Suffice tt is to say that this Is a
misdirected charity It can cater only
to very poor children, and these it
must remove far away from home.
The maintenance is only 13 per cent
of the collections. It is our opinion
that this is a corrjtnecial proposition.
A charity corporation as poorly ad
ministered as this is should be stop
ped." -The bill charges the society with
being a "trick, an imposition, a
mockery, a sham, an artifice, a cun
ning scheme for the sole purpose of
publishing and selling booklets and
pamphlets to obtain large sums of
money from the public and using it
for the benefit of the officers and of
the society."
A pamphlet the society sells
throughout the loop "is called "Our
Tuberculous Children."
The United Charities spends 67
i cents of each dollar it collects dn it
self while this society, the report
says, spends 87 cents.
