THE TIMES. D Day's Grist in South Chicago u MIT IRE POLICEMEN i East Siders Say They Are in Need of at Least Five More. The East Side wants more police men and an effort will be made next month to get Chief Shippy to put on at least five additional patrolmen in the territory which comes under the Jurisdiction of the East Side station. At present there are thirty-seven men in the station. Of this number sixteen travel beats and the remaining twenty-one are superior officers or operators. With sixteen men 'traveling beats this only gives the East Side, Irondale and Hegewisch eight men each evening to patrol the long, lone some beats. The population covered by the East Side station will reach In the neigh borhood of 30,000, and to cover this territory with only eight men days and the same number nights, is looked upon as preposterous by other offi cials through the city. Yesterday Lieutenant Moore said that the East Side alone ought to have five more men to adequately cover the ter ritory, but stated that he would be eatisfled If he could get five more men. When a person takes into consider ation that an officer has to travel from One Hundredth street to One Hundred and Eighteenth street, part of the way with bad streets, it is no wonder that a policeman never can be found when he is wanted. If Chief Shippy would only come to the East Side and personally take a ride over the territory and see the large amount of work for the small number of men, it Is certain that the East Side would receive a new batch of cops. TOUWSJMIDEfl TRIP Carries 200 "Grasshoppers" From South Chicago to Eiverdale. The first trip of the "Tpurfst," one of the South Shofe" Outing nd Trans portation company's boats, was a huge success and if every other trip of the Bte&mer is on a par with last Satur day's, the success of the new company Is assured with no room for doubt.

"It's such fun," she announced on the evening of the first rehearsal, "to act with real men! At school, you know well, at school we didn't hare any real men." The "real men" laughed. There were three of them. Two were old friends and admirers of Polly. The third, Brad ley Rogers, she approved the moment he was introduced to her. "Well," asked Tolly gayly, looking over the printed cast in her hand, "which of you Is my lover?" Solemnly, with hands on their hearts, all three bowed. "You are all very silly," said Polly, blushing. "Now, please be serious. Which of you is to be 'Captain Wheel er, Claire's lover, absent on the field?" she continued, reading from the play. "I am cast for that unfortunate part," Bert Crawford answered. "Unfortunate?" queried Polly, and she raised her pretty eyebrows haugh tily. "Unfortunate," Bert hastened to ex plain, "because 'absent on the field' for two whole acts, you notice, gives these other fellows too much chance to cut me out." 4"Oh," smiled Polly graciously, "then Sir. Marshall and Mr. Rogers are rivals for my hand, too Claire's hand, I mean." "Js'o; haven't the pleasure," sighed Jim Marshall. "I'm only your brother." "Never mind, Jim," said Polly com fortingly. "I'll be a real eweet sister to you. And what are you, Mr. Rogers?" "Your father," answered Rogers la conically. Polly found the admission exceeding ly amusing. "But what possible chance do my father and brother have of cutting you out?" she asked Bert suddenly. "Oh," explained Bert carelessly, "I meant they'll cut me out with the au dience. No chance to win any bouquets and that sort of thing." "But you'll win me. I mean what's her name? Claire." "Oh, I'll come out strong in the fin ish," Bert returned confidently, at which Jim shot him a look that es caped Polly's notice. It did not escape Rogers' observation, however, and be smiled at thu thought of the fun to como behind the scenes. "Who's to be my 'girl chum, Nata lie? " asked Polly, again consulting the printed cast "Mrs. Rogers," Bert answered. "And she'll be dandy in that part too. Where is she tonight. Brad?" "Couldn't come. The baby had the croup or something or other." Tolly wheeled around .suddenly on the piano stool and faced Rogors. "Do you mean to say," she asked ac cusingly, "that you don't know what's the matter with the baby?" Rogers, taken by surprise, looked very much embarrassed. He began to stammer an explana tion, but got no further than "Well, you see, Miss Noyes," when the "prompter" arrived and the reading over of parts and the studying out of stage business began in earnest. As the rehearsals of the play pro gressed Tolly found them absorbing beyond all her expectations. As It happened, Mrs. Rogers, owing to the baby's Illness, had not been able to take the pjrt of Natalie after all, and Elsie Williams, Polly's intimate girl friend, was prevailed upon to try it. This change in the cast, simple as it seemed, was the cause of other changes far less simple. For one thing. Bert Crawford, whom 1 Stamps, MAX.

Now, Polly ought not to have re sented this, for she knew very well in her heart that she never-intended Bert to develop, so far as she was con cerned, into anything beyond an obse quious and ornamental attendant However, since he was her lover in the play, it piqued her not a little to have him constantly missing his cue while making love to Elsie behind the scenes instead. On one of these embarrassing occa sions Jim Marshal came to the rescue with what seemed toihim nothing sort of an inspiration. 'ee here, Polly," he exclaimed Jo vially as Polly, alone in the center of the stage. Impatiently waited the dra matic entry of Captadn Wheeler aft er his "absence in the field," Tve got a eimply corking idea. Bert and I will change parts. You see, ofiC the stage he's Elsie's lover, and on the stage he's your's. Now, why not fix it as it really is and let me be your lover on the stage as well as off? Don't you think that would work ut well? I'd be on hand for this scene, you can bet your lifer' But Polly received his suggestion with anything but enthusiasm. "Don't be foolish, Jim, and please hunt Captain Wheeler," was all she answered. Accordingly Bert, alias the missing captain, soon rushed in, and Polly ran to meet him, "falling into his arms with a cry of joy," as the stage direc tions called for. "Oh, that wlli never do at all," com plained the prompter. "You don't act as though you were really glad to see him, Miss Noyes. And you don't stay South Chicago Incorporations.
