U.S JILL SET
As one step in stopping the ever
upward trend of prices and wages,
the Government proposes soon to set
a standard wage In each line of war
work. At the same time, a mora
careful checking on prices will be
attempted, and In so far as possible,
standard or fair price lists will be
The standardixatlon of wages prob
ably will be undertaken In a few
weeks through Presidential procla
mation. By this means, a ship rivet
er In Newark. N. J, will get the
same wage as the riveter at San
Francisco, and so on through the
Government and private war work
factories of all kinds.
Heretofore prices have risen, and
wages have been boosted to meet
them. This process appeared con
tinuous. Now, it Is proposed to stan
dardize the wage; and If possible
stabilize, priced. Price fixing may
have to be more widely used. In any
event, U; Is likely that the Govern
ment will tell producers that, they
cannot have raw materials unless
they sell their goods .at a fair price.

sons afflicted with communicable dis
eases, and a Dermlt must be Issued
by the Dfstrlct Health Department al
lowing Early to enter this city. Dr.

tion of bis case Is beirg discussed all
