The parade of the Volunteers of
America caused a little more than
its due share of excitement in the
loop this morning. The parade was
held while the Volunteers were tak
ing 904 children for an outing in
Jackson park.
Some criticism of the manner in
which the Volunteers protected the
children was heard. Many firms
contributed auto trucks to carry the
children. Among the firms were The
Fair, Rothschild's, Brunswick, Balke
& Collender and Lyon & Healy. It
was considered a good advertising
stunt But the Fair neglected to
provide the children with seats in
their trucks, so the children early
deserted them and flocked aboard
the other trucks.
As a result there was general over
crowding and many of the children
were forced to trot along behind the
trucks, looking for a place to hop
on. There were no adults in charge
of the children. The Volunteers were
all at the head of the parade.
While tpassing the City Hall the
children made a plea to the onlook
ers for money. Pennies were tossed
to them. The children leaped from
the trucks and a general scramble
for the pennies followed. In the
meantime, the rest of the parade
marched serenely on.

You call on our manhood, our wom
anhood, too,
To sacrifice lives in the cause
Of the flag that's above us the red,
white and blue,
And you give us yqur fervent ap
plause. You spit hate of "greasers," e'en
while you say
Our country and we must protect
.The ignorant Mexicans, so that they
Be saved from their country's neg
lect. But there's this that we know, even
now as you say
That our honor's -betrayed while
we wait;
You own much of the, land of the
men we must slay,
And your greed is the cause of
their hate.
We'll go there and kill if our honor's
at stake,
But we want to be sure that is why,
And not just a slaughter a blood
stench to slake
Your ungodly greed while we die!
