When the fund was started by this paper four weeks ago it was agreed that it should be closed on Dec. 23. It was felt that by keeping the fund open for a month every one who wished would have an opportunity to scrape together enough surplus cash to contribute. The fund will be closed at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. Anyone desiring to participate in this good cause should mail in checks' or cash tonight, so that it will be in the office tomorrow morning. The Day Book admits that the fund has grown beyond its expectations. It is sincerely gratified at the way its readers responded with little urg ing to the call for aid to the strik ers. Other newspapers are collecting funds now or have done so recently, and in doing so have secured money through solicitors who would call upon a wealthy person and ask for a donation of so much; the person so licited might not be in sympathy with the object of the fund, might not want to give, but might fear not to give. A member of the Socialist Wom en's league turned $35.95 over to the fund today; that makes $140.32 from this .source. Machinists employed by C. W. Shonk Co., Maywood, gave $23.50. Some necktie makers donated $5. It's your last chance. Slip a little green boy or a check in an envelope and mail it tonight Remember, the fund closes tomorrow morning! o o Sir Guy Laking, armorer of the king of England, has a helmet of the fifteenth century which is worth $10, 000.
