GRAVES MOVES IN. John Tem
ple Graves has come to town and
taken furnished rooms and a desk in
the Hearst bldg. He is here to stay
and "a permanent decoration," the
boys on the Hearst papers say.
Graves is an orator. His job in
Chicago, it is now an open secret,
will be to orate when the Hearst pa
pers and politics need first-class
Graves is in the same class with
James Hamilton Lewis, if you know
what is meant. Both are easy on
their feet Both understand the art
of navigating in front of an audience.
Neither of the two ever hesitates for
a word or phrase. Each knows how
to spill language dnd both are occa
sionally accused of spilling the beans.
Both take a hundred long words
where ten short will do'. The main
difference between the two is that
one has a lot of spinach on his phiz
and the other is smooth.
Graves' home, town is Atlanta, Ga.
That's where Hearst picked him up
and signed a big contract with him.
Graves was editor of an Atlanta daily
and is one of the southernest of
So if Morris Rosenwald or Louis
Kuppenheimer is introduced to
Graves they can ask him personally
about the Leo Prank case and
whether Hearst's paper in Atlanta
played its news in favor of hanging.
1 Soon as Graves gets access to
facts now in the hands of Aid. Rob
ert M. Buck he will have a ready an
swer for anybody who asks him
about the Frank case in Georgia. All
he will have to do will be to show
the David Forgan grand jury report
and the Utpatel committee report on
the police and the garment strike.
Also, if they ask Graves about
child labor down south, all he's got
to do is point to Oscar Heineraan's
silk mill out at 2701 Armitage av.
If there's any place in Alabama or
Georgia where tads of working girls
get worse air State Factory Inspec
tor Oscar Nelson wants to know
about it Of course, Oscar Heine
man provides Bromo-Seltzer for the
girls after he gives them a headache.
, Come on, Graves. If you lived in
Georgia you'll not feel like a strang
er amid the sights and odors of Chi
cago. Your nostrils will not be out
raged here any more than in Atlanta.
Instead of the splendiferous, sky
rockety, slish-slosh speeches of John
Temple Graces, don't folks prefer the
plain, matter-of-fact, no-flowers
style of Margaret Haley, John Fitz-
patrick, Mrs. Raymond Robins, El
len Gates Starr, George .Hooker or
As a champeen orator we wish the
Hon. Graves much luck. If he can
sling any stuff that will do this town
good, we're for him. Known in ad
vance as a fog-horn of Hearst, he's
got a bum start
NO PLACE FOR AN ANGEL, BOYS
A "Wichita man has a small angel
figure on his car radiator, which is
attracting a great deal of attention.
An automobile is no place for an an
gel at the time of a blowout or any
other kind of trouble, is all we can
say. Arkansas City, Ark., Traveler.
Judge Gary says that 75 per cent
of the steel being turned out is for
domestic consumption. Bully! Beata
