POOR ARE BEING SOAKED FIVE
CENTS EACH FOR EGGS
New York, Nov. 12. The discov
ery that eggs are being sold to the
poor of the crowded East Side at the
fancy price of five cents each caused
Mrs. Julian Heath, president of the
Housewives' League, which is affiliat
ed with women's organizations which
have a total membership of 700,000
all over the country, to send agents
among East Side residents to tell
them where they can buy eggs at 35
and 40 cents a dozen.
"The situation here," said Mrs.
Health, "which is probably being du
plicated in every big city, is almost

which the poor of the East Side of
New York and the 'East Sides' of
other cities are paying these fancy
prices are being sold on the West Side
and the better sections of other cities
at 35 and 40 cents a dozen. Merely
because the poor people buy a few at
a time instead of by the dozen they
are forced to pay higher prices.
"And even the people of the middle
classes are paying fresh egg prices
for eggs that are actually from five
to six weeks old."
