TRADE BOARD PLANS
WAR PRICE FIXING
Munitions, Food, Clothing, and
General Supplies Expected
to Be Affected.
War prices for armor and. arma
ment, war. munitions and possibly
food, clothing and other necessities
for the civil population of tHe United
States, probably will be fixed by the
Federal Trade Commission. '
The Commission la prepared for
such action and has data on many
Industries, as well as cost of produc
tlon figured, as a basis for price-fix
The commission has offered its ser
vices in this capacity to the Presi
dent and the Council of National De
fense, and awaits word to go ahead.
No action has been taken, but the
commission's course will be speedy
when the call Is made. .
Manufacturers Welcome Action,
Armor plate manufacturers have
publicly volunteered to let the com
mission fix the price on Government
contracts. Makers of munitions of
all kinds and of food, clothing and
general supplies, have agreed large
ly through the Chamber of Commerce
of the United States, to eliminate ex
cessive gains from war and to keep
returns on all contracts down to nor
mal and reasonable profit.
In view of this situation Adminis
tration leaders believe the logical
course wilt be to Instruct the Federal
trade commission to fix "reasonable
prices" on all supplies for the Govern
ment. The question will be taken up In
Congress in a few days, and authoriza
tion and the necessary appropriation
for such action Is expected In Ad
Food Probe Proposed.
An appropriation of $400,000 for a
national food Investigation by the
commission has passed the House. Be
cause of the critical situation it Is
likely that In its final form the bill
carrying the appropriation will
authorize food price fixing by the com
The trade commission has avail
able detailed data on food production
and distribution, gathered from the
Department of Agriculture- and other
governmental and private agencies In
contemplation of the food probe di
rected by the President weeks axro.
After finding distribution costs, the
commission would be prepared to ad
minister the food supply so far as
prices are concerned, and to stop food
speculators from pinching the public

At the National American Woman

there was much discussion about MIsa

Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt. head of
the association said: '
"Even If Miss Rankin did weep

it any worse than the men's .method

it Is rather that she voted her con

Shall We Go It Alone
Or Join the Democracy of Europe
In Fighting Germany?
Shall we send an over-seas army to join the Entente Allies? Is it best for our Navy toco
operate in destroying German submarines? Will unlimited financial assistance! to the Allies
prove most effective? Or, shall we wage war with Germany independently of her other antag
onists? On these questions editorial opinion throughout the United States is sharply, tho far from
evenly, divided, most of our press seeing in the European war a conflict of principleSj a struggle
between absolutism and democracy, declaring that the United States should cast its lot, with the
Allies on the firing line of democracy. The "go-it-alone" side of the argument is concisely stated
by the Leavenworth Times: "This is an affair of our own with Germany. To be sure, the fact
that Germany is having trouble with .us probably will be of material assistance to the Entente
Allies, but in their fight with Germany we still are neutral."

Perspective the Only Key to Perfect Understanding
There is an old proverb to the effect that the
onlooker sees most of the game. The player's con
ception of it as a whole, that is as removed from
his individual effort or experience, is bound to be
blurred and clouded by the dust and noise of the
struggle. The observer notes the movements of
all the players, grasps the massed combinations,
and surveys the ebb and flow of the contest with
cool understanding. The reader of THE LITER
ARY DIGEST has the benefit of such observa
tion. He has summarized for him weekly an im
partial review of what is being thought, said, and
done on all sides of the great questions that are
absorbing the interest of the world, and he gets
the inestimable advantage of perspective. THE
DIGEST takes no sides, keeps out of the struggle
of politics, social disputes, trade rivalries, and the
rest, and records all vieio-points. Begin reading
it at once if you really wish to understand the
great game of life as it is being played to-day.
