By the 4L Publicity Comm mittee, II. J- Cox, Chairman
When Jack came home from Har
vard they called him a Tea Hound,
folks thought the only things he
could do seuccessf ully were to drape
himself over a lounge, fox trot with
a flapper, and wear' loud neckties.
Jack's old man was a Big Business
man who had been dead from the
collar up for many years. Ha made
money, but his ideas were as stale
as ume Broadway shows. You
couldn't pound anything new into his
head with a pile driver. So he said:
"This Safety stuff u all tne bunk."

always somebody absent from work,
but the Old Man paid th? compensa
tion bills, and said: "It has to be."
Finally the condition which had
existed so long above his collar be
came prevalent all over him.
Jack was sole heir to the property.
A lot of lawyers and business men
and people came around to advise
him, to say nothing of a number of
female fortune hunters who thought
he would be an easy catch. But he
turned them all out and said he could
run things. So everybody shook
their heads and said: "Here's where
the business goes smash."
Jack, began to be missed at Tea
Dansantes, and a lot of flappers and
lounges began to get lonesome and
bored. He was devoting his time to
business. He went through the fac
tory, and through the office records,

he did not stop there. He had been
to college, and he knew that men
can be taught things, and that a lot
of mechanical devices wouldn't be
any good unless the men had the
safety spirit. So he ordered fre

and be aroused the men's pep like
