Changes Pay Plans.
It was announced at the War Depart
ment today that the accounting officers
of the Treasury Department will not
permit the continuance of the practice
heretofore followed of making payment
from State funds to troops of the total
amount due for State pay and United
States pay and subsequently reimburs
ing the State for the amount payable
from Federal funds. Such action, ac
coidlng to the Government accountants,
places the State In the position of a
voluntnrj creditor, a position not au

Talks pn the Cost of Living
YOU fellows of the. House and those Who deem
, themselves your more .digni.ied brothers of
'the Senate have re?n doing a lot of investigating on
this High Ccs o Living problem that is confronting,
the entire naikn these days. But, gentlemen, have
you turned your glasses in the right direction?
"You. have searched out the manufacturers of
'this' and 'that' product, investigated their methods,
and all that. But trere are two sides to every ques
tion. "Have you considered the other sjde I mean
Mr. Average Buyer? When I get through I think you
will agree with me that the blame should rest on him."
Mr. MAKE-IT-RIGHT Takes
The CRADDOCK Shoe
As an Example of a Good Cost of 'Living Reducer
41 T ET us take one ot the necessities ot lite as an ex-
L, ample shoes. Didn't I just hear one of you
gentlemen ask where was the good old $3.50 shoe of a
few years ago ?
"Well, it is worn out, and you wouldn't wear it if
it wasn't, with its clumsy style and inferior interior con
struction and finish. Shoes have improved mightily
in the last few years from the standpoints of style,
service and foot comfort.
"Yes, but the prices have gone up, did I hear you
say? Wait a minute! Prices have gone up on many shoes but not on all
shoes. Right here in Washington Berberich's are selling the CRADDOCK
Shoe for men for $3.50. That they have not reduced the leather quality or
the quality of the construction in order to enable such a
price is evidenced by the fact that the CRADDOCK
Shoe is backed by a guarantee that few manufacturers of
the highest price shoes would dare put behind their
products a guarantee that puts the CRADDOCK Shoe
ahead of any other $3.50 shoes by at least 30 days
more satisfactory service to the wearer.
The BERBERICH Guarantee
"THE CRADDOCK-TERRY CO., of Lynchburg, Va., having convinced us that
CRADDOCK Shoes will wear 30 days longer than any other $3.50 men's footwear, we take
it upon ourselves to guarantee the satisfactory service of every pair. Should any pair of
CRADDOCKS that we sell not live up to this guarantee in the strictest sense of the word,
we hereby agree to give the wearer a new pair absolutely FREE. BERBERICH'S."
"Here is your $3.50 shoe
price of years ago, but a shoe
designed in the style of today
and with an interior shaping
for comfort that entirely elim
inates the old 'breaking in'
process of years ago, when you
had to subject your feet to act
ual torture until the shoe be
"These statements of mine
are not hot air. If any CRAD
DOCK Shoe fails to live up to
them, I will make it right."
