Budget. No. 2 called for pcrhap.
h year more than the minimum budg
He said it provided just a little bit \
more for clothes, about tbe same I
amount for food of th" plaincst sort ?
and al ~o for insurance, savings and ;.
Budpet number three. he said, pro-'
? icied for six rooms, a telephone. bath-'
tub. furnaee or steam heat. magazincs,
books and educational advantages and
would l.cep the ilirce children out of
industry until they were eighteen years:
Returning to budpet number one
lhe bare neccssity- Professor Ogburn
"This is what is known as tlie Chapin '
budget. aftcr thc man who prepared iti
in 1908 for the Kussel] Kapo Founda?
tion. At that time the neccssities out-'
lin?d by him v/ould have cost $800 or1
$900 a year. 1 have brought this nnc;
up to date by using present-day markci |
"Recently in examining a number of!
budgets of typic'a! New York famiiies
I was astounded to see how many of
them spend from $700 to $900 a year I
for food alone."
$76 a Year for Clothes
Mr. Walsh asked Profes ;or Ogburn to '
tell how much money was allowed fo:- a '
man's clothes in the minimum budget. i
"Seventy-six dollars every year."
Then tlie professor was 'asked to'
show what garments this money would;
buy. He said:
"A man would get a cap or hat; ono \
and one-half pair of overalis; three- i
tenths of an overeoat; three shirts; i
two and eight-tenths pairs of shoes; '
sixleen pairs of socks; twenty-five j
pairs of heavy cotton gloves; three
suits of underwear; one-lifth of n
sweater, and not quite a pair of trous- :
ers. ln addition, there would be $5.50
for other articles of apparel, such as
handkerchiefs and collars.
The man's wife would have to get
along with $21 less for clothes than
ner husband, buying ber wardrobe for
not morc than $55. Professor Ogburn
cxplained that the man was obli.-ed to
appear in pubiic and ihe woman spent
most of her time. in the house, where
I clothes are not so important.
i He said that where the income was
less than S2.000 a year the man was
[obliged to soend more than bis wif.
lor clothes, especialiy men who toil
with their hands and who. consc
quently are harder on their garments.
wnen 'ue income passes $2,000 an?
nually, no said. the woman spent morc
mv-i S than hor husband.
What clothes could a woman buv
with ,0), Professor?" .Mr. Walsh asked.
I he witness replied:
'Two aprons. one and seven-tenths
Jresftcs. not quite a corset, ono pair
<>? gloves. one hat. not quite two pet?
ticoats, eight pairs of stockings, on

With so many shops hol
lering "Sale," it's a compli
ment to our clothing, as
well as a manifestation of
the public's conridence in
our method of doing busi?
ness, to continue to have
such a large and steady
demand for the suits and
overcoats we offer at regu?
lar prices. Last month's
business exceeded any in
the history of our house.
Let's chat a hit about
why there will be no "sale"
Not once in the panicky
period of the woolen indus?
try did wc let go of our
high. standard of all-wool
and fast color.
Not once did we argue,
"Oh, well, weVe got to have
woolens, so let's buy what
we can, standard go hang."
True, our foreign connec
tions were a big help, espe?
cially when the Govern?
ment began to take over
entire American outputs,
What's the result! To?
day we've only fine grade
clothing?with no need "to
try and get from under."
To-day we've a price
scale that, in conformity
with our usual practice. is
based on fabric costs of a
year ago; in some cases,
That means, were we
now to try and duplicate,
say a $45 coat, matching
the quality of the cloth,
linings, trimmings, mak?
ing, etc, we'd have to get
from $55 to $50, figuring
the lowest possible percent?
age. commensurate with a
Frankly, it's been a job
to keep pace with thc de?
mand. Reductions in the
ordinary course of business
are simply made to clear
out the stragglers. There
are mighty few.
If we may quote from
the consensus of opinions
expressed by customers
who've looked elsewhere
first, the real bar gains are
at "four convement cor?
ners," where, at reasonable
prices, you still get full
measure and a little hit
more for every dollar spent.
Winter suits. Winter
overcoats. All of our own
manufacture. For men; for
