Editorial Comment
- r
DOES EVERYBODY WORK BUT FATHER?
Clyde A. Brown, acting director of the city voca-
tional guidance bureau, asserts that the number of
children of school age employed in Chicago this
year is approximately 4,000 greater than usual.
That islan increase of 17 per cent, which evidently
is much greater than the year's increase in the
total number of school children.
The figures reflect a dangerous change in eco-
nomic, industrial, and moral conditions. The in-
crease of child labor comes in a period of general
prosperity and more or less general extravagance.
Whereas formerly children were forced into indus-
try by actual need of food, clothing, and shelter in
their families, it' now appears that they are to a
considerable extent being lured from school by
high wages and a demand for luxuries.
The high wages offer economic proof that theirj
services are needed. The work must be done. If
adults cannot or will not- do it, the children will.
Mr. Brown attributes the situation in part to un-
employment of parents because of strikes. He
might go farther and explain that strikes, in many
cases, are due to the efforts of parents to reduce
their hours of labor. In that purpose 'they are suc-
ceeding to amarked extent.
In other words, the labor of adults is being re-
duced. There is an economic demand for a cer-
tain amount of labor, and the children take the
jobs. Their education is sacrificed, and they enter
upon life with a handicap. That is bad for the
children, bad for their future citizenship, and bad
for the nation.
One way in which it can be remedied is for
father to go to 'work.-Chicago Tribune.
Abaft the News
On the Extravagent Expeyse of Existing
What good is a nickel? Well, it makes a jingle
in the trousers if you have two.
Do you remember the days when they used to
give you a box of matches with every purchase in a
cigar store? Neither do L
In the old days ten cents worth of cat's meat
was good enough for any man's supper. Now it's a
;ollar and a half to get enough horse steak to choke
a young child.
Aviators say that planes are going'even higher
next year. Less noise there in the five cent seats !
If you don't have a motor funeral nowadays you
have as much chance of getting to Heaven and get-
ting a good obituary as a blind man in a dark
room looking for a black hat that isn't there.
The silver handles on the side have gone up 258
per cent.
The cst of a good funeral celebration these parl-
ous times is enough to make a man feel so low he
could stroll under a duck with a silk ht on. That
is if he could afford a silk hat.
Where does all the money go that used to be
spent on live beverages? That's easy. It doesn't
go. It does't even come.

Are the bartenders out of work? Not so you
could notice it. They keep in trim clipping cou-
pons and being measured for $i8o suits.
How about the college professor? Ask 'em. .

Did you ever go into one of the local hash houses
and order that delicacy known as hash and.be cheer-
ed up to hear that waiter bawl to the cook "Clean
up the kitchen?"
Which reminds us of the old gag how to make
hash. You don't make hash, Hermione, it accum-
ulates.
