' flmctto io r one-priceplan for season Problem of Adjustment Put Up to Industry. II1AT th solution to tbe prob lem of adjusting business conditions Is a function which industry Itself most undertake is reflected in the Mvalanche of replies received to a let ter recently sent out by the I-nbewood Engineering Company, Cleveland, n reproduction of a few of which are shown herewith. Believing that price Is a most po tent factor, this company announced lis decision to make price periods of not less than sir months, with a iew of bringing1 about a common under standing between the producer or manufacturer and his consumer, and a definite establishment of confidence . between the two. New Price Revolution. Irving Fisher, professor of politick ynotny of Yale University, has writ len an article which was presented to the governors and mayors" confer ence at the White House in Washing ton, in which he said, "Business men fthouM face the facts. To talk rev erently of 1013-1914 prices is to speak a dead language today. The buyers of the country, since the armistice, have made an unexampled attack upon prices through their waiting attitude, and yet price recessions have been in slgniticant." It Is interesting to observe that many manufacturers think that prices must come down, including the price of labor, but they are ready to dem onstrate to you that their own prices cannot come down, nor can they pay lower wages. Almost everything they buy somehow costs twice as much as before the war and their labor In twice as dear. They cannot pay their labor If labor Is to meet the increased cost of living. As a matter of fact "when we Investigate any Individual one of the so called hfgh prices we tire likely to find that the individual! price is not high, that it Is not high 1UW1'' increased wages to such a point relatively to the rest. Kvprr,m mat in a period of four tmm the teems to have lost the sense of value. !nn rractlcally doubled. In the review of history conditions T,l nverage increase of building iefore and subsequent to a war. fliers materials in the same period has boon is not one Instance where prices have DU S per cent. receded to a pre-war level. The dev astations of this war have affected the l r.Ited States less industrially than any other nation participating. Tre mendous demands created by the war The recession In building material prices during the last four months has almost been in visible. Prbduct rices Higher.

It Is tho purpose of the National Prosperity Campaign, an organization j with Its headiuarters at the Oommo-; dore Hotel In New York, supported by members of Industries, to further this spirit through the trade and business press of the country. The only way for' business to have people know what Is good for busi ness Is to take the people Into Its confl dence and get fhem thinking and act ing on those things which are good for business on the theory and good sense that whatever is good for business la good for the people as a whole and that whatever Is good for the peopl Is also good for business. iBOYS AND GIRLS OF SANTA FOSA ENJOY OUTING w-JtIsfe5r Romance Th and Your Summer Vacation e Lakes and Mountains of Historic New York State Hit the old romantic trails of the Mohegans and Iroquois; follow Champlain and other pioneers down beautiful lakes and through the high woods of the Adirondacks.

L. HERRINGTON. The club boys ani Kirls ul Santa Rosa county, Florida, have novei- had a more enjoyable time nor learnvl more interesting things about t!u work than during the eneanip'uent helJ at Floridatown, June ft to 14. There are IS club organized in the county and tivo boys and two j;irl.- v.ete fleeted from each club to attenJ tho camp. This made up a. most in terestiiip; party. Florida cow n is only a small village or community, located on Pensacola bay. but is famous aa a camp f,-r !!til It was one of the first places in Flor ida to be si 'tied up by the white lu'.fi. I'rior to that time the Seminole In dians used it as a camping ground and landing place for their canoes that went up and down or across the bay. There are immense live oak trees spreading their long branches over th ground making dense shades. The live oak tree s'ovvs only in tropical or semi-tropical countries and we will explain to the boys and pit Is further north that it is much like the water oak or pin oak. It is evergreen, and immense quantities cf grey Spanish moss hangs from its branches in Florida. During the encampment the boys made their beds on the floor of a large dancing pavilion while the girls used cottages. Meals (good meals) were served by the girls, cafeteria style. A cook was employed to do most of ti-.e. work as it was not right for boys and girls to do anything that could not be considered half play. Ifow hard it would be to relate all the activities of the camp. The girls had lessens in sewing, cooking, can ning, basket making, while the boys spent the forenoons at their classes on various branches of agriculture and livestock raising. Ievotional or chapel exercises were held every day, F"ishing, bathing, ball games, drill, etc.. were the leading sports every afternoon. The moon shone brightly every nizht during the camp. After a brief lantern slide lecture on club work just after supper, the boys and girls all went to the white sand beach here they played games In the moon light until late bed time. Old southern sonsrs were sung at the moonlight games, and some of the f 'nniest stories every thought of were told. Patriotic songs were sang, too, and especially during t.ie morning ex erclses. The camp was entirely successful. Club members from ail. parts of the county were well acquainted when it closed. Their interest in the very best ciub work was renewed and their re ouesi wa sthat all hoys ami cir':? be .Howed to attend next y, ar instead of oiiy four from o h club. I'ci-liap:' that will be possible since it is to be made an annual affair. Tho county commissioners appropriated funls to makij the camp possible. Club leaders and instructors from th I'r.ivcrsity of Florida. State Col lide for Women and the T.'nited States Department of Agriculture were pres ent and they all claim to have en joyed tho camp as well as if they had been club members themselves, but this Is hardly possible. They only thought they were having as good v time as the boys and girls. rj r Due .ciai tot w O i 5-b if $5998 Monday ay, July 7 CKERS $5.98 I Substantially made with double Rattan back and seat, just the thing" for the porch. 1 TERMS 98c Cash, $1.00 per Week TERMS a. s W f MiiSiiis Furniture Co, 90 East Wright Street Phone 1995 A a 1 9 . ;7 Ml ,5 "'I
