Suburbanite Economist (Newspaper) - August 18, 1931, Chicago, Illinois .TWENTY-SIXTH 51 SOUTHTOWN, CHICAGO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1931 3 CENTS AT NEWS STANDS Delivered by CarrUr to Any la Territory at two IT'S NO USE! CANT STOP THE FLIRT At Least 4 District Civic Leaders are of That Opinion By ANITA LUICK------- Fear of arrest won't squelch the flirt. That Is the opinion expressed by (our Southtown ministers and as many clubwomen Interviewed yester- day following a police order issued by John Alcock, acting commissioner of police, that all flirts be arrested. Declaring that flirting has been a natural depravity of man for years and that It cannot be wiped out by law. Rev. R. Keene Ryan, pas- tor of the Oarfleld Boulevard church, 5614 Green st., regarded the police order as a futile attempt to raise the moral code. Suggests Cuban System experience as a member of the prison pardon and parole board has thown me that nine-tenths of Jail Inmates started on criminal careers as the result of flirtation misde- neanors. But locking up one youth iirho ogles a woman won't elevate the jyes of his brother when a pretty girl passes. "I've despaired of ever eliminating the flirt. One of our best bets is to teep women confined to their homes luring the daytime as they do in Cubs and then permit them to go out In the evening only with an escort." That the order to arrest flirts bids fair to fall because there are not policemen on the Chicago de- partment to seek out these moral vio- lators was the expression of Mrs. A. E. Bantz, 7629 Emerald ave., for 12 rears president of the Auburn Park Woman's club. "Flirts Intrigue Women" "There are many a young girl In- trigued by the flirt who smiles at her from a street corner or an automo- bile, and it would take years for po- lice officers to apprehend these Ihe said. "Flirting is a permanent Irregularity In our social system." Rev. J. L. Kearns, parish priest at Ihe St. Ethelreda church, 8824 Marsh- fleld ave., termed the police order as i "probable attempt to secure fa- rorable publicity." he said, "don't strike up 11- Ucit friendships With girls unless they ire encouraged. No serious examples 8f flirting have ever been brought to my attention. I don't believe this practice wins the approval of many foung persons." Must Be Sincere The sincerity applied in police en- forcement of the order will determine Its success or failure, according to Urs. W. H. Alford, 5844 Stony Island ave, vice-president of the chryso- lite club. "Incarceration of a few ihe said, "may react as object lessons to others. But only persistent en- forcement can bring a successful re- turn." This remedy was also recommend- ed by Mrs. John McCrae. -9928 Win- Bton ave., past president of the Wash- ington Heights Woman's club. "Scaring a few of the flirts by flnes or Jail penalties Is bound to have a good effect, but it is a slow and te- dious process." Though Rev. Guy Wimmer, pastot of the Foster Park Baptist church, 84th and Justine sts., commended Commissioner Alcock on his deter- (Ccntlnued on page 7) AUBURN PARK BODY PLANNING DOLLAR DAY ON_AUGUST 27 Auburn Park business men, in the vicinity of 79th and Halsted sts.. have plans under way for a Dollar Day, to be held on Thursday, Au- gust 27.

I listened intently. Yes, it was really the beating of his heart! It's I whispered to William Hughes. He was busy with inhalator machine gadgets. "Sure it he replied. "And it's going to keep on going." He didn't take the mask from the boy's face. Again, I listened. Through the sensitive loop of the stethescope I heard the beating grow louder, stronger. Another fireman came and listened. Suddenly, two other firemen were at the bench. One held the arms of the boy, pinning him down. The other Expl ains Gilruth How Depositors May File Claims Irwin T. Gilruth, receiver for the "Bain" banks, yesterday outlined the procedure for filling in. signing and filing claims of depositors. Printed forms for making proof of claims have been mailed or will be mailed this week to all persons who are shown by the books of the banks to have claims as depositors. Anyone failing to receive a form may obtain a copy by calling at the bank during the same hours the bank is open for access to safety deposit boxes. Claim Not Binding "Each form for proof of claim ac- companied a letter to the depositor from the receiver stating the amount due from the bank to the depositor as shown by the bank's books, but the letter stated and the receiver repeats that the person making claim is not bound fcs ihe amount stated In the said the receiver. "If any claimant's records do not agree with those of the bank, repre- sentatives of the receiver at each bank will endeavor to explain and adjust such differences with the claimant before the proof of claim is signed and filed." Mr. Gllruth's statement to the SOUTHTOWJJ ECONOMIST follows: Read Printed Form Every depositor or other claimant should carefully read the printed form before writing in the blank spaces provided for the Information required. No claimant should write in columns or spaces which have been designated as being for some other purpose, as to do so will only cause confusion and may delay the allowance of the claim. All proofs of claim when signed should be acknowledged before a no- tary public; the services of a notary public for taking such acknowledg- ments will be furnished at each bank without charge to the claimant. When the proof of claim has been filled out, signed and acknowledged before a notary public, It should be deposited at the bank against which the claim Is made, at one of the win- dows which will be designated by appropriate signs.

Mrs. Murphy was born in the dis- trict 72 years ago and resided in the neighborhood her entire lifetime. She died Thursday afternoon at the Mercy hospital. Death was due to a heart attack. Old settlers remembered that the trees in Southtown were full of bird life and that the prairies were full of rabbits. It was said that when meat was wanted during the winter months the men shouldered guns and shot cottontails. They were also excited when they learned that "Chicago is extending its street car line this way." Sixty years ago, the white-haired mourners re- minded each other, Chicago had not annexed the South side beyond 18th st. Mrs. Murphy was buried at the Mt. Olivet cemetery, following funeral sen-ices from-the St. John church. Her son, Joseph Murphy, and a daughter, Susie Murphy, survive her.

Mask Is Removed The boy struggled violently to break free with what seemed super- human strength. He subsided, limply. The mask was removed. An am- monia capsule was. broken and held beneath his nose. Then another. He seemed to come to life again, but feebly this time. His cheeks flushed. He opened his eyes. Stared at us, bewildered, grog- gily. Then, with the aid of two flre- men, he sat up. "Am I were the first words he said. He put his hand to the pit of his stomach, held it there. He swayed a trifle when Hughes removed his support. Gives Him Advice "Just a said Hughes sym- pathetically. "Got you in time, we did. A little later and you couldn't be feeling dizzy." He removed the mask from the long hose. "You'll be pert enough in a minute or two, Just take It he advised. "Next time, be more careful when starting up your car. Always remem- ber to open the doors of the garage." "Gee. I sure the boy gasped fervently. For a little while he sat there. His mother fluttered about him and the lieutenant of the squad who had brought the boy to the station. He had been found a few doors away, slumped over in the front seat of the family automobile like a heap of melting ice cream. Not In Bad Way The boy got up. He lurched gaily to the door of the station. His mother pattered in his wake solicitously. Hughes disappeared to sterilize the inhalator mask. I turned to the lieu- tenant. "Close I questioned. "Might have he replied. "But no, he wasn't in a bad way. You saw for only took a couple of minutes to bring him around."

Estimates on the size of the reser- voir needed and its cost are expected to be completed within the next 30 days by Myron B. Reynolds, acting city engineer. The necessity for an increased water supply was brought to the at- tention of the department three weeks ago when property owners in the area around 87th st. and Long- wood dr., which is served by the Roseland station, complained to Al- derman O. E. Northrup (19th) about the lack of water. Alderman Northrup, In turn, pre- sented the matter before the depart- ment of public works. As the result of preliminary Inves- tigation made by the department. It was discovered that during the hot days the demand exceeded the ca- pacity of the Roseland station. Also, it was found, that the supply ex- ceeded the demand during the late hours of the night. The suggestion was made that a reservoir be built In which water could be stored during these hours of the night for use the next day. The limitation of water supply at the Roscland station Is caused by the Western ave. station at 58th st. and Western ave., which was built two years ago and which obtains its water supply from the same source as the Roscland station, the southwest land tunnel system.

The Injured man declared that he did not know more than that his as- sailant's name was Tom. Police arc searching for the man who fled the scene .mmcdlatcly. Pulos was taken to a nearby doc- tor by a passing motorist, Steve Kanilsy, 10536 Campbell ave., where hr wns treated for three slight wounds In his left side. "Jazz" Music Will Be Stricken Off Kiwanis Program "Jazz music" may tickle the toes and serve as a counter-irritant for the restless urge, but it doesn't pro- mote that good-fellowship so neces- sary for the success of huge gather- Ings. Acting upon that theory, Klwanl- ans have relegated "Jazz music" to the scrap heap for their 14th annual convention, which will get under way August 30 and continue through Sep- tember 4 at the Shoreland hotel. Instead, they have billed on their program nothing but the old favor- the songs that used to quicken the pulse of grandfather when he was young and bring a flush to grandma's countenance. To Feature Quartet "When YOU and I Were Young. Maggie." is one of the numbers, se- lected by Emil C. Erlcksen, music chairman, for the affair in which the Illinois-Eastern Iowa clubs will take part.

Donoghue. superintendent of the South Park board, declared that the completed plans for the fieldhouse will be ready In a few days, and that advertisement for bids on the com- munity house will follow Immediately.

Series nf Delays The flrst formal steps taken by the park commissioners occurred last fall after a delegation of representatives of civic organizations headed by Sen. Thomas Courtney (llth) nnd Aid. O. E. Northrup (19th) made a pica for Immediate action with respect to the erection of a fleldhouse. The park improvement proposal had been suggested many years be- fore to the South Park commissioners by citizens and civic groups In the community. Delay In such work was caused, however, by trouble with property owners of the land which makes up the park, as well as the poor financial condition of the South Park board at the time. Settlement with the property owners was made last year. Payment for Foster park Improve- ments is to be made from a bond issue passed several years ago for general park Improvements.
