Why on earth, said the office *
girl, should you expect the Advents
readers to provide you with work-
ing capital to expand?
Why on earth, say Ave, is there
such a thing as an office girl?
Inasmuch as this column is
chiefly about finance it may not be
amiss to mention for the benefit of
a few shallow-foreheaded folk that
when The Advance accepts an ad
from The Leader, it does so because
a certain member of The Advance
3taff desires to eat during the en-
siling week and not because we’re
wholly in accord with Oscar Ame-
ringer’s philosophy of life.
One thing we do agree w ith Oscar
Ameringer in is that he s a wiser
buyer of advertising space than
some folk we know. He has another
ad in this Issue, but we’ve marked
it “ADV.” so the unsuspecting pub-
lic won’t think we’ve prostituted
our news columns.
And while on the subject we
might as well point out that the
striking railroad shopcraftsmen’s
announcement in this issue is a
Loose-tongued gents, misguided
maidens and daily newspaper ad
solicitors might as w ell be resignr/1
to the fact (hat the editorial policy
of this here hand-bill is indepen-
dent in everything and neutral, too.
We're as conservative as the bank
which accepts business from open-
shoppers or unionists, bootlegger or
i lawyer, society woman or socialist,
democrat or republican, jew or gen-
tile. Catholic or protestant. All we
insist is that their business with
us be legal from start to near the
finish when the legal tender may
be substituted by currency or
1 checks of the sufficient kind.
Miss Nancy’s unanswered letter
of July 24 comes to the surface of
our desk. After apologizing and
assuring Miss Nancy that wre’ll
write her specifically in answer to
paragraphs 3 and 6. we shoot this
—the impersonal ending—on to our
readers: “* * * and ‘writing men’
are few' and far between in this
town, n’est ce-pas?”
Although we’re not quite sure
whet n’est ce-pas means, we are
sure that if Miss Nancy reads the
last page of this issue, acts prompt-
ly and favorably on it—we’ll hire
the writingest he-man that ever
crossed the Mississippi, or the Ca-
nadian—that is provided 2499 in-
terested readers also act promptly.
Still on finance—we eat at Yale’s
nnd-10-cent Cafeteria three days,
U over a friendly Camel listen to
Bert Yale narrate the events of by-
gone days. It seems that he once
employed a rather stupid waiter
and when a tired customer asked
for some coffee without any cream,
the rather stupid waiter said:
"Please, sir, would you take it
