COST OF LIVING
DROPS OVER 5 P. C.
Decrease Began in July ; Hasn't
Reached Pre-War Prices
New York, Jan. 15. The cost of
living decreased five and six tenths
per cent in the four months from July
to November, the decline being
brought about by drops in the aver
age price of a number of important
food and clothing articles so great
as to offset increases in many other
items the National Industrial confer
ence board reported today.
This month's decrease, however,
left the cost of living higher than in
July 11114, immediately before the war
by the following percentages: Cloth
ing, 128 per cent; fuel and light, 100;
food, 93; sundries. 02 and shelter, 0(5.
The board said merchandise deal
er seemed to expect a further drop in
prices early in 1U2I
According to the board, the aver
age price of food dropped nearly
twelve per cent in the four month
period. Potatoes dropped sixty-three
pr cent sugar, fifty-one per cent;
clothing, fourteen per cent, with
greater decreases in ','he prices of
many other items espcially clothing
and wearing apparel, including shoes.
Furniture and house furnishings also
Increases were noted in the follow
ing: Eggs, fifty-one per cent, and
coal ten to twenty per cent. There
were slight increases in gas and
electricity rates. Rent increases con
tinued to appear, but were less sen
sational than in proceeding periods
and for the first time in many months
decreases were reported especially in
the industrial cities of New England

WILL BE URGED
Importance of Industry to Be
Stressed at Meeting
Acting on the behalf that, by rea
son of the unsatisfactory condition of
the tobacco market, the psycholgjcal
moment has been reached at which to
turn the thoughts of farmers to live
stock production. President Will Bell
of the Louisville Livestock Exchange
has arranged a meeting to be held
at :i o'clock Wednesday afternoon in
the new Exchange Building at the
Bourbon Stockyards, in the interest of
greater livestock production in Ken
tucky. Letters have been sent by Mr
Bell to bankers, packers, manufac
turers of feeds, farm bureau repre
sentatives and all others interested
urging attendance at the meetings,
when the situation will lie discussed
in a general way.
"The permanent prosperity of Ken
tucky depends principally upon the
production of livestock, but this pro
duction has fallen off to an alarming
degree," is the statement of President
Bell in arranging the conference
The principal points to be consider
ed at the meeting are means of in
teresting farmers, especially those
operating small farms, in raising more
livestock; including farmers and feed
ers who have quit livestock raising
to return to that industry, and prac
tical methods of improving the grade
and finish of livestock produced on
The fact that the tinaucial condi
tion of the rural population of Ken
tucky is unpleasant, if not serious
prompted the movement intended to
swing Kentucky back into the front
ranks of livestock-producing States.
The situation generally in this State
is all the. more acute because of the
fact that tobacco-raising is getting
more attention annually as the live
stock industry wanes

The loss on livestock, it is pointed

for that industry, but it would not
compare with the loss suffered by
liianufacturers of textiles and other
finished products, or with the shrink
age of stock ind bond values.
Tc Encourage Feeding
The present method of marketing
livstocl. is held out as representing
the quickest way for a farmer to real
ize on his profits, and the livestock
interests will urge the banks of the
State, through the meeting to en -

Dinner Speakers Cite Funds on
Hand ; Calls Louisville
Declaring sateinents nude that the
highway program has broken down
were unfounded. Joseph B. Boggs,
State Highway Engineer, announced
that Kentucky has $7,700,000 to spend
on highways this year at a dinner
last night at The Seelbach marking
the close of a two-days' session of
the Kentucky Highway Contractors'
Contracts will be awarded for every
penny of that amount if the prices
arc right, Mr. Boggs said and his as
sertion was backed up by H. Green
Garrett, chairman of the State High

able for road building Mr. Boggs said

Federal Government money and ?-,-OOO.OUO

that Louisville business men would
be the last to oppose the building ot
good roads because of sdme one call
ing attention that Louisville is sup
