i Legal Rates Held Too Low,
Speaking of county printing, in
Ramsey county the board of county
commissioners are unable to find a
paper in the county that will print the
financial statement at the legal rate
of 75 cents per folio. The lowest rate
given the board is 99 cents but the
law makes 75 cents the maximum
price. A bill has been introduced to
raise the rate to $1.00 per folio.

The legitimate real estate dealers
of this state are asking that the legis
lature give them a measure of protec
tion. The dealers want bona fide real
estate men licensed to carry on the
business and we believe that the re
quest is no more than fair. The deal
er who goes to the expense of main
taining an office and expending money
for advertising should be given pro
tection from the sidewalk pirato who
is in the real'-estate business today
and in something else tomorrow. The
legitimate dealers have done a great
deal to advertise Minnesota, bring new
settlers here and put the price of
land where it should be.Winnebago

Mrs. L. M. Leonard placed a small bas

doorstep and announced that the bas

homeless and unwanted babies. To

haven there this week.
This is real charity, and if Mrs.

Some say this is-a queer world to
live in and it certainly is when one
comes to think about it. On the trip
to Anoka one of the basketball girls
mentioned the fact that she wished
their new orange and black woolen
socks would come. "Oh, girls!" came
from the b&ck eat of the machine,
"I forgot my bloomers, tennis shoes
and socks, What 3hail I do?" This
was followed by roar of laughter
from the other passengers. "But what
shall I do?" came from the unhappy
ono, and, oh, what wild ideas were
thought up. It was finally decided to
wait until Anoka was readied where
they would try and borrow some from
the Anoka girls, and lucky for her,
they succeeded. For further details

N Change in FOR
Prices or Design
The following letter from W- A. Ryan, Manager of
Sales, Ford Motor Co., is self-explanatory:
"\tfE want to state again with greater emphasis that Ford cars
are already being sold at a figure actually below cost, and for an
indefinite period another reduction or change in design is entirely
out of the question and not at all contemplated.
"We believe the public will be fair enough to fully appreciate
the frankness of the above when they consider the extent of our re-
cent price cut which was in fact equivalant to several reductions
one, in our desire to contribute toward satisfying their demands
for lower living costs notwithstanding our sacrifice in marketing
our cars at a loss until we are able to materially reduce present
costs through lower material prices and greater manufacturing
efficiency. While we have of course made some progress in bring-
ing down operating costs, we still have along way to go before
any thought can be given to further reductions in present car
prices, so we have no hesitancy in making these open statements
to acquaint you with the true situation.
"You can therefore give assurance to prospective
of Ford cars that now is their real opportunity to buy
and obtain delivery. Every one is familiar with the heavy demand
for Ford cars in the Spring and this year will be no exception, as
in spite of conditions, business is already accumulating, so that
many who desire Ford cars will be obliged to wait perhaps until
mid-summer for delivery, causing considerable inconvenience and
perhaps financial loss, particularly to commerciul customers."
