EARNING GOOD HONEY
'' Forced to subsist on a nickel's
worth of dried rolls and water for
more than four days, with her hus
band making daily wage of over $3,
has been just one of the many in
stances of neglect and abuse that Mrs.
James Park, 3514 North Thirty-ninth
street, related in police court that she
tld her two small children have been
Compelled to undergo. .

little eirl 6 vears of see.
The husband and father, according
to Mrs. Parks, works part of the time
in summer, and then only contributes
in an intermittent and inadequate
manner to his family's support. In
the winter and a good part of the
summer months the wife sews . by the
day and earns a meager living.
Their home is little more than a
one-room cement hole, with a roof
that leaks as though it were not there
and a dirt floor that runs to puddles
when it rains for any length. The
whole structure measures about 8x10
feet. . , . . . , , .
