I delivered that paper off and on around 1950 until about 1953. I don't really remember how I was paid, but what Richard sais sounds about right. I know it wasn't very much. I delivered in the area of 55th to 59th and Ashland to Wood. As I recall, it came out on Wednesdays or Thursdays.
I remember the office of the paper being at 46th and Ashland. That was when the strip mall at 47th and Damen was the site of the yearly Free Fair.
