GETTING BY'
It ban come to be the common cus
tom to refer to the present indisposi
tion of America?* to buy their ordi
nary needs generously as a “strike";
an ittitude voluntarily assumed by
cousummer8 as a protest against pre
vailing high prices of commodities.
There is evidence that poor retail busi
ness is not entirely caused by a
“strike." riere and there matters come
t? light that indicate inability to buy
generously until prices come down.
The war era of high wages has passed,
the business of the country is settl
ing down to a permanent peace basis
and millions of men and women are
able to stretch their incomes over their
expenditures only by doing without
:he unessentials of life,
Recent responses to inquiries nd
iressed to the faculty of the Univer
sity of Illinois brought out evidence
of such a condition. One instructor re
ported retrenchments in food qnd
clothing and in medical services, and
has been wearing one suit of clothes
for nine years. An associate instruct
or used food of inferior quality, insuf
ficient and cheap clothing, denied him
self ordinary pleasures, amusement
and social activities, and postponed
leeded medical services. An assistant
orofassor postponed dental'and surgi
ml work and the removal of tonsil s
idoptqd a vegetarian diet, resolved his
own and his family's shoes and at
ended to the weekly washing at home.
Aft associate professor finds himself
at the end of twenty-five year's Ber
rien without a dollar saved and is cut
ting all the corners. A professor is
wearing cheap clothing, ashamed to
tell anybody of bis subterfuges and ex
pedients for “getting by” on his earn
ings, and is “out of all social activ-1
irios, ordinal* amusements and recre-I
xta oh. i
* I
This Uom a class of people who
should bo living comfortably on their
«ning* U probably representative of
he condition of many other classes,
inough in fast, to make business a bit
dull without any consumer's strike.
The mass of Americans have been in
ffigso skimpid Conditions of living ever
dgee war poshed up prices. When war
xhistries Were paying high wages the
beneficiaries were liberal spenders ant
rosiness gad Industry profited by that
apt New fee ppulent season has pagi
ed and tfcg people of the country, o..
thg whole* are Just barely '“getting
by." Business, in all probability, will
improve in propdrtion to the faljin
commodity values and the increased
buying power of the public.
