of the association to assist Attorney
General A Mitchell Palmer In combat
I inc the high cost of wearing apparel.
Tho cause- of high pri - ai- lx-yond
th control of the retail dealers Wry
declared, but members of the associa

sacrifice of ihelr own protlts.
Popular priced suits, which sold be
ore the war at $2" and now retailing

spring, Wry said. (
Demoralization of the industry inci
dent to the army demands for uni
forms during the war, greatly in
creased labor costs and shortages of
labor, din- to the stoppage of whole
sale immigration, are responsible. Wry
added. Piece workers in Chicago

as ?lo5 weekly, he said. From one of
the poorest paid industries, employing
largely Immigrant workers, before the
war, tho needle- trades have become
one of the best paid Wage increases

said, while goyernment reports fix the
increase In the cost of living during
