The $2,000 mark which The Day"
Book set out to attain before closing
its fund for the striking clothing
workers was reached and passed to
day. 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!
