The Chicago Daily News tried to make life a bit easier for its newsboys by providing a hall where they could meet, gather the newspapers they were going to sell, and rest (DN-0003063). The newspaper company also subsidized a canteen that sold food to newsboys at low prices and sponsored a marching group and band with handsome uniforms that performed in parades (DN-0000538, DN-0065122). James Petrillo, the powerful leader of the Chicago Federation of Musicians, reputedly got his start in the band (DN-0081929). Occasionally special events were planned for the newsboys, such as trips to an amusement park or a skating party (DN-0001790, DN-0081074, DN-0086178, DN-0087159, DN-0078331).
