PlUCttS NOW AND Til K V A survey of local marltot conditions recently made by The World, shows clearly the great de cline in living coats, which have como to Tulmi during the past two years. This decline, tak ing the whole list ot commodities, will avorago at leant 30 per cent. This Is gratifying Indeed, but doubly no when one realizes that the de cline In wages nnd salaries have not been any thing like thnt heavy. This condition, coupled with the universal nwakoulug In building circles and general In dustrial aotlvlty, promises a long period of un exampled prosperity so fnr as Tulsa In concerned. The governors are going to attend President Harding's dry congress but they are not going with any entJitinlasm or Joy. Decauie It Is like ly that all governors present will be forced to take some open stand on the burning Issue, nnd an open stand on that Issue Is Just as un pleasant now as it was 10 years ago. fust Folks Copyright. 1922, by Edgar A.
