they uro bolter than educational sal
aries. Thoy run aa high as $10.000 a

that much. ' Their aggregate ?alarles!

Of course you'll want at least one serviceable suit for "all
occasion'' use this spring.
You have more room for choice this year, for we've se
cured a beautiful new Clothcraft gray serge suit, "6130,"
from the same house that makes the well-known "5130''
You'll wonder how it's possible to get so much good style
and careful workmanship for $15.00.
It's because the makers have specialized on medium-pric
ed clothes for 70 years. The Clothcraft factory ranks
among the foremost in the country in scientific methods
It's a case where good wages, fair treatment and high
ideals have produced better quality at lower cost.
Blue or Gray-$15.00-which shall it be?
And there are other good Evans suits $10 to $25. -
