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

any other nation participating. Tre

In the face of prosperous condition -obtaining

country, the sitnation is somewhat dLfi 1!
ficult to analyze. On the other hand
these merchants are not replenishing .
their supplies, manufacturers are not.t"
buying their raw materials, foreign :,
buyers in this country are holding;",
back tho orders which they came to
place, awaiting a settlement of condi-:.
tions. In the belief that there may be.
some recession In prices.
Action Necessary. ,.
The only economic solution for the
problem of unemployment, the only'"
way to obviate further unemployment
Is to overcome the present Inertia by -bringing
into activity the enormous .
potential buying power, which we all
know exists. j
Judging from replies to the suggest,
ed "ono price for the season plan.'J
Industry itself Intends to overcome
this Inertia. The replies come from j
every conceivable Industry and from .
evei state In the Union and they!
were DO. 4 ln favor of doing for them-i
selves without waiting for someone !
elso to set tho pace.
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.

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
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
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.
