The back of the clipping includes part of a letters column, in which A. J. Franck decries the fact that railroads are made to pay for eliminating grade crossings, Louise Griffin expresses her interest in a recent article on George Bernard Shaw, and states that she has done some "research" on the subjects of vegetarianism and anti-vivisection; Mary S. Ingraham thanks radio station WNYC for co-operating with the YWCA in a series of broadcasts for girls and women, and W. E. Tompkins expresses his resentment at the result of the trial of Raymond N. Sabourin, chiropractor, and apparently hopes that chiropractic will be made "legal".
