Firms Made 29.8 Per Cont in
1919 Until Buyers' Strike

Interoasmal news servmie
Large profits. taken 0y every one
in the shoe btasiness. froim the tanner
down to the retailer, were disclosed
today by the Federal Trade Commis
sion in a report to Congress.
The Trade Commission's report was
in response to a Congressional reso
lution directing an investigation of
the high shoe prices which prevailed
during 1918 and 1919.
"Earnings of eighty-nine tanners of
shoe leather, whose production in
1918 was about %w per cent of the
total production. were 13.1 per cent on
investment in 1919." the report tats,
"and 23.8 per cent in 1919. Of them
[email protected] the earnings of twenty-two
companies tanning kid leathers, with
production in 1918 of about 70 per
cent of the total reported kid leather
prbduction. were greatest. averaging
24.S per esat on investment in 1915
and 61 per eent In 1919.
MADU IMA PCT. IN 29M
Darninge of 341 shoe manufacturers
with an output in 1919 representing
about 42 per oent of the total output
shown in the census of 1919. were 16.2
per cent on investment in 1918 and
29.8 per cent in 1919. Earnings of
thirt6two typieal shoes wholemlers
and jobbers averaged about 22 per
cent on investment in 1918 and about
31 per cent in 1919: earnings of forty
six typical shoe retailers averaged
about 25 per cent in 1918 and about
32 per cent in 1919.
"These earnings, like those of tan
ners and shoe manufacturers. result
ed from wide margins of profit taken
on each shoe sold. The inereased
earnings in 1919 were due to the fact
that selling prices increased by great
er awa~nts and percentages than did
osts."

the report of the commission deelares
that the whole situation was "the re

The onward march of prices and
proOts was finally ended by the an
-eners themselves with -the "buyer'
trike" of 1520. the Uade comunien
Snds.
"The failure of leatbe) prices and
shoe prices to decline as eztensively
as did hide prices after the buyers'
strike," the Commission finds, "may
be attributed to the fact that other
costs had not declined as much as
raw material costs. and to an appar
-ent tendency to base selling prices
on actual rather than replacement
oot--a policy inconsistent with that
applied in 1919 while prices were ad
vancing."
Y any who gained large profits in
1979 felt the wrath of the pubic in
1920, when the consumer failed to
buy, and small profit. and in some
casse even losses were chalked up
beside the 'large profits of the pre
ceding year.
Whil, the Commission. investiga
tion closed with the year 1020, it
holds that present prices of hide, and
conditions xistent in the industry
"justify an expectation of still further
doolines in the quoted pricee pf leather
and of shoes."

my Iateruntlees news serv .
MEXICO CITY, June IL-Ppblie
opinion in the Mexican capital was
much calmer today after almost a
week of excitement. bordering en a
"war scare." There were symptOms
of universal hope that a basis may
be found without much ftrther de
lay upon which Mexico and the
United States wil5uild a new re
lationship devoid of the bn"S af
contention that have endangered
peace between the two nations in
the past. %&
The Mexican public generally ap
pears inclined to support the atti
tude of President Obregon, which as
summed up in his refusel to sign
the 'protocol of the prposed treaty
with the United States ptilor to roe
onition of his government by
Washington.
Prominent members of' the Mexi
can senate joined 'in the indorse
ment of Obregon's policy and e
pressed the view that the. United
States should abide by the treaty
of Guadalupe. signed in 1841, after
the Mexican war.
Other officials, regresenting a less
conciliatory element, voiced the
Gpinion that the big powers of the
world do not. as in former times.
resort to arbitration 'if they can
force their will upon the smaller
nations. Those w ho represent this
view try to bac up their arguments
with the statemeat that "if the
United States desires a friendly
treaty, it should not demand or dic
tate it, but take the course ef
friendly give-and-take negotiations."
tieneral Calles, minister of the in
Lerior. reflected the general new op
timism today when he stated that
the situation was by no means grave
